Just fair but wouldn’t stay again. Had to ask twice for shower drain to be snaked and my bill was erroneously high by over $400.

« Overall satisfied but lacked attention the the details »

Generally, I enjoyed my stay but noticed that attention to the small details that used to seem important were lacking with my latest visit. For example, another member of the staff had to tell the front desk attendant that I was standing there to be checked in even though she was at the desk when I arrived. She was distracted. She was friendly, however, when she looked up and saw I was there. I ordered room service and two items ordered were not as I requested but the food was good and delivery was prompt. The usual bathroom amenities, which are my favorites of any hotel, were not fully stocked as usual. There was also no top or flat sheet on my bed, just the sheet covering my mattress and the comforter. The bed was neatly made and clean so I simply overlooked it. These were unusual as compared to my previous stays at the Sofitel.

« not the quality hotel experience I expected »

Tried to order something like a cheese plate through room service, but no room service menu was in the room. When I called to find out what was available via room service, I was placed on hold for five minutes by room service. I decided instead to get something out of the minibar. When I went to the minibar, there was no price list for the items. I called room service to get prices, again being placed on a long hold. I eventually was told a half bottle of mediocre white wine cost a ridiculous $39. Really? Never coming back to this hotel again given the large number of much nicer but no more expensive hotels available in the surrounding neighborhood.

« Great hotel in great location, easily accessible to Metro »

The hotel was lovely and the staff was attentive. They were very accommodating about a late checkout. The only reason for the 9 instead of 10 was because of the restaurant. The service at breakfast was slow and the food came out not lukewarm. I would not hesitate to stay here again.
