Monica C. Families - 16/08/2018 AccorHotels certified review
« Overall a great experience »

The staff was excellent. Shout outs to: the young blonde women from Netherlands who were part of a training program and left during our stay. My daughter got sick and they brought her a little basket of food; very sweet! Brian, Sebastian at the breakfast restaurant, and Pablo at the dinner restaurant. The young doorman who also works in housekeeping. One thing I noticed is that they remembered me--I'm not really a person who stands out, so I was continually surprised at that. The room was nice, and quiet as requested. Food was great (steak poivre, ravioli w/corn in particular. Loved the cheese board with the honeycomb, too!) There is no option on the next page to say that I chose the hotel through a friend's recommendation. A few nits: 1) In the dinner restaurant and bar....some of the table heights are too high for the chairs. They just are--really, you need to lower these tables (or lengthen the chair legs) as it puts a dent in the experience. 2) The main floor women's restroom was not maintained well at all, especially on either Friday or Saturday night (I can't remember which of the two nights). First, please put a small trash can in the interior of the main entrance so we can open the door with a paper towel. But second, the state of the women's restroom was not up to par in general, and absolutely disgusting on either Friday or Saturday night--for a long time and long after I reported it. I know that the front desk knew about it because I ran into one of them in the bathroom, but it still was not cleaned up later on. 3) Our stay at Sofitel overlapped with the “unite the right” rally and we were disappointed with the lack of communication coming from the hotel management around saftey. The focus was logistics around street closures instead of giving us information to keep safe. I was grateful for friends in the District that kept me in the loop, but should not have to rely on friends for this information. The local friend that recommended the hotel to me (and has her large family stay there often) is very upset with the Sofitel about this.

« We had a very relaxed and pleasant 2 night stay in a wonderful hotel. »

The staff was very polite and efficient. The accommodations were clean and comfortable. the food and service for our group was excellent. The exercise room was adequate for my needs. Our only issue was that we left a cell phone charger and could not make phone contact to report it. I used the contact form on the website and did not get a reply. If charger is found, please call me at 70….

« Art Deco delight in middle of DC »

I this Sofitel charming when I originally stayed here two years ago. It maintains its standards of servicd and charm! Rooms are beautifully appointed. Beds are so wonderful at any Sofitel that they leave a small catalogue at the end of the bed to be able to recreate the experience at your home. Great, friendly, helpful staff. I would not think of staying anywhere else while visiting DC.

« Comfortable rooms, customer service could improve »

Very comfortable room - spacious, comfortable beds, fantastic lighting in the bathroom, etc. Check in and out are always courteous and fast. Minor customer service issues can be improved. Regular Nespresso ran out (decaf only) and I was promised a complimentary pot of coffee at 8am that was never delivered. On the next visit, the creamers were not replaced and the regular Nespresso was replaced with decaf. Small things but they make the difference in overall experience.

The hotel was beautiful, centrally located to everything. Everyone was so nice. The concierge even packed up some items that i left there and sent them to me. He was so polite and efficient. The items came promptly and he made sure it didnt cost me a fortune

From TripAdvisor commentaries and my own staff feedback on making the reservation to the reception at the hotel and upgrade to a nicer room to even the bell hops anticipating your every move, I was impressed by the focus on the customer experience.

The hotel was nice, the staff was friendly. Despite this i was uncertain why this was rated a 5 Star Hotel (rather than 4 Star).

« There was a problem with the room. »

The stay was good but there was a problem with the room. The bed was not made and the floor/carpet was very wet all around the bed. It was late when I arrived (midnight) and was facing an early morning meeting and so I just made the bed myself and did not request a room change.
