EnglishMummahen Couples - 17/05/2019 TripAdvisor review

Stayed at The Sofitel for a week and we were thoroughly impressed. Great room, good sound proofing, all employees where cheerful, helpful and chatty. Hotel was clean with good atmosphere. The location is fantastic, so close to The White House and the Mall. First rate hotel.

Nice location and great room, but still waiting for account clarification, and WE GREATLY MISS THE FRENCH NEWSPAPERS

1. Lovely room on the corner of 15th and H streets, as we always request for our anniversary. 2. Still waiting to clarify a charge on my credit card....only checked out yesterday. 3. PLEASE BRING BACK FRENCH NEWSPAPERS AND AT LEAST SOME FRANCOPHONE STAFF...this has been a main reason we stay here. At this time, any quality American hotel would be similar.

Mostly good but the bed was old and saggy. My husband and I rotated the mattress and it was filthy behind the bed. Kinda grossed me out for the rest of the stay.

Great location, people, rooms and service. The only issue was getting my car from Valet. It was a Friday afternoon and it took over 20 minutes. Only one person on duty. There was a line of 4 or 5 of us.

Poor service

Customer review rating 4.6/5

Dr. F. A. Couples - 15/05/2019 AccorHotels certified review

I was very disappointed in my stay at the Sofitel in DC. I have stayed at the Sofitel before and the service at the hotel from start to end was extremely disappointing. The staff appeared burdened to help us with our bags and didn't help bring them to the room, the service at the restaurant was extremely slow despite them being well staffed and not busy, and they were rude to us on the phone when we called for room service late at night despite advertising 24h room service. I would have rather stayed at a neighboring hotel than here.

Excellent customer service, safe location and quiet hotel!

Customer review rating 4.6/5

Anonymous Families - 15/05/2019 AccorHotels certified review

Customer service with guest check in/out and Concierge was excellent. I would highly recommend hotel due to service, location and quiet rooms. There was no noise distraction. The only area that needed improvement was consistency with housekeeping. When requesting towels and soap after hours, we received great service. However, if there had been consistency with getting more than 1 hand towel daily or getting gel soap on a daily basis we would not have needed to bother housekeeping. When we arrived, the bathroom still had long dark hair in the bathroom. All it would have taken was for the house keeper to vacuum the bathroom and wipe down the tub. Greater detail to leaving 2 hand towels and fresh soap. One day we received 3 hair conditioners rather than 1 of each item.

Thank you Dee for taking the time to leave a review, We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Sofitel Washington DC Lafayette Square.
