The staff was very helpful and nice. The sitting room was a little tired looking. The tv stand was broken and there were stains on the couch. I didn’t like the pocket door with frosted glass on the bathroom. It lacked privacy. The onion soup was wonderful. Room service was prompt.

A comfortable hotel that unexpectedly gave me some problems.

Customer review rating 4.6/5

Nblack Business - 14/06/2019 AccorHotels certified review

I typically enjoy my stays which are always for business purposes. However, this time around, there were a few problems. First, the iron in the room unexpectedly discharged B. water which stained a linen jacket and a shirt. After I complained, a new iron was provided to me and the hotel staff had the shirt cleaned at no charge, but the stain was not fully removed. I didn't trust the jacket to be cleaned and had it cleaned at my own expense which I might add hasn't fully removed the stain either. In addition, when asked my preference for newspapers delivered each of the two mornings, I specified the Financial Times. However, no newspapers were ever delivered. Lastly, I left my bag with the concierge for later pickup by a driver - I let the concierge know this. Although the driver had a photo of my tag, there was apparently some difficulty finding the bag making my driver a little late for my pickup at a conference hotel to take me to the airport.

Customer review rating 4.6/5

D Business - 14/06/2019 AccorHotels certified review

Paying $600+ per night for a room, I thought it would be 5* service. The room wasn't stocked with amenities, the minibar still had items left from the previous guest and the service in the restaurant was slow and sometimes just plain the wrong order. One day I found a banana left in my bathroom! I was very surprised overall. The one bright spot was Mesfin and the restaurant packaging up some macaroons for me to take to a dinner. Otherwise, I'm not sure I would return.

Dear Diana D., Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the Sofitel Washington DC Lafayette Square.

Conrad S. Families - 12/06/2019 AccorHotels certified review

The location is awesome. I had expectations of a grand hotel, but was very disappointed with the physical plant. The lobby is a hallway. The ceilings are low. The rooms are nice but in no way special. The restaurant is not open in the evening. Service at the front desk always seemed a bit slow.

Average for an older hotel run by a high-end brand

Customer review rating 4.6/5

Lisa Families - 12/06/2019 AccorHotels certified review

Our stay was fairly pleasant though the hotel overall felt rather small and dim. Our second floor "courtyard view" room had a view directly into the windows of a neighboring office building 10 feet away. The room itself was nice with a very comfortable bed and linens and the bathroom in particular was nicely remodeled though I wish the exhaust fan had actually worked. It took three requests and 18 hours for a mini-fridge to be provided. The mandatory $25/night resort fee is silly in a hotel and location like this though since all it covers are standard amenities like wi-fi, newspapers and a small gym. Valet parking is $65/night so I found an alternative for less than half that price at a garage half a block away. These all fall under the category of "first world problems" but as I know many people pay significant rates to stay here (2 of my 3 nights were free thanks to hotels.com rewards), they were noteworthy.

Dear Lisa C., Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the Sofitel Washington DC Lafayette Square. I am sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations; please allow me to express my sincerest apologies. At Sofitel Hotels & Resorts, we strive to provide a superior service experience for every customer; therefore your feedback is very important to us.
