« Elegant and comfortable. Friendly and accommodating staff. »

The staff is polite and friendly. The doorman remembered me from the last time I stayed at the hotel. That is impressive in today’s world. When I got to my room after a long day, I was grateful for the macrons left in my room. Such a nice surprise and a lovely treat. The bartender, Marlos was very nice and accommodating as well. The front desk staff was also very kind and helpful as well. I always look forward to coming to DC because I get to stay at Sofitel.

John N. Business - 07/12/2018 AccorHotels certified review
« It was "OK" »

My experience was just OK. I had high hopes, but initial room wasn't as described, upgraded to a "junior suite" for $50 more a day just to have a small sofa in the room. I was told i would have a nespresso machine in my room....It took 3 requests and a day to have my coffee pot switched out for the nespresso machine. No turn down service. (These are relatively minor, but were listed in the hotel description online.)

« While the room met expectations, the food has gone downhill since my last stay »

I have stayed there many times, in part because of the quality of the dining room and room service food. This time, however, the room service dinner (steak) was grey and over cooked with frozen fries. The breakfast in the dining room was no better than adequate. Not up to prior standards

« Decent hotel »

Overall a decent experience staying at the hotel, room is clean and tidy. You can tell the place has been built for sometime so it feels a bit old, but it is not bad in anyway. The valet parking is convenient and easy to use, though it is pricey so you get what you pay for. I don't have anything to complain or report. The staff was professional and friendly.

« Lovely room, gym in need of upgrade »

Room was lovely and quiet. Very comfortable bed, sheets and pillows. Thank you! The gym was in need of significant maintenance. The treadmills are squeaking and not calibrated correctly. I had to put the speed to over 5 mph to get to a slow Trot. I was at 8 mph to do my normal pace of 6 mph so they need adjusting. Also there were no lighter dumbbells for women. Can you add 3, 5 and 8 pound dumbells and new exercise mats? The ones in there were falling apart. Also the elevators doors are squeaking badly. They need oil. The lobby was also full of leaves and dirt. The lack of maintainace and care in the common areas is surprising for an upscale brand such as the Sofitel. The rooms themselves were very lovely though and I would like to stay again on my next business trip. Hopeful this is helpful.

Nicola G. Couples - 03/12/2018 AccorHotels certified review
« Very nice hotel, could do with a few improvements around the edges »

Great hotel in terms of location, we had a lovely room and a great bed. The service at the front desk was a bit mixed. When we arrived, the family with small children had clearly been given some bad news about their room and it didn't look like the receptionist handled it very well. There were hardly any hangers in our bedroom. The flower in the lobby on our fourth floor by the lifts was dead. There was a noisy unit outside our bedroom. If we hadn't been so exhausted, it would have affected our sleep.

« Has stayed here many times before and will do so in the future »

Very nice. Gold member gives me upgrade and late check ot. Excellent. Only problem in the room is that there is no chair that fits the writing table but I managed to get an office chair so I could work. I do not understand why the room doesn't have a proper office chair. Has been so since the last renovation.
