It was generally ok

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Steve J. Business - 07/11/2019 Confirmed reviews AccorHotels

The room and hotel were nice. I am frustrated that the hotel does not remember that I have stayed there many times. I used to receive a note and some token in my room recognizing that I stay there often. That has not happened in over a year. And more annoying than that the staff does not have my phone or email in the system and EVERY TIME ASKS ME TO GOVE THEN THAT INFORMATION AGAIN. I DO NOT FEEL LIKE A VALUED CUSTOMER.

Our visit was wonderful and met our expectations

Charles H. Families - 05/11/2019 Confirmed reviews AccorHotels

It was a very short stay -- two nights. Two guests, two rooms. Rooms were fine. We both disliked the duvet. Apparently everyone else "sleeps cold"? That is, the duvet is very comfortable, but too heavy. The only way to stay comfortable is to turn the air conditioning way down; otherwise, I get much too hot under the duvet. I would like to have a sheet under the duvet, so that I can be covered without roasting.

Thank you Charles for taking the time to leave a review, We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Sofitel Washington DC Lafayette Square. I am delighted to hear that you had an excellent stay with us and that you found our central location excellent. It is always a pleasure to receive feedback. I will share your comments with our team.

Staff Forgot who the customer was

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Anonymous Friends - 05/11/2019 Confirmed reviews AccorHotels

Unfortunately not great. Hotel was old and ran out of everything from maps of Washington(really?), to toiletries, to elevators not working (which they knew but failed to mention until we were stuck in one), to no one answering phones so had to keep going down to front desk.(even then the staff were not always around). Room was fine but clearly the staff were not on their game. I shouldn't have to work that hard (tracking down everything) as a customer in a hotel. Exhausting

Staff was very friendly & helpful.

Great location, Great staff but too many private parties in the bar and restaurant

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Anonymous Couples - 05/11/2019 Confirmed reviews AccorHotels

Room was nice -- quiet and very comfortable. Your staff was fantastic. One evening, we could not visit the bar or the restaurant due to private parties. Another evening, the bar was unavailable. Perhaps you should send the private parties to the meeting rooms as this is not fair to the rest of your guests.

The pre-paid breakfast has a 30. limit, with coffee and juice costing 12, so the total with omelette and yoghurt goes considerably above that amount. Not a problem, but it was a surprise. You may want to reconsider presentation. Your staff on the desk are always welcoming and friendly and speak French, which I very much appreciate. Thank you for a good stay.
