Vincent V. Business - 15/09/2018 AccorHotels certified review
« The hotel is beautifully designed and my experience was overall nice. »

It was nice. A bit pricey for a small room that was't the room I paid for as it looked at an alley wall instead of a view of the city. Also, your breakfast was not great at all as I had to send it back and then it came back cold. However, the service was very good. I also tried to park a car at 11:00pm out front for an hour and they wouldn't do it and there were no other cars on the street.

« Good stay - great food, but gym is poor »

The room service food is excellent. The room is comfortable, clean and bright. The mattress a bit squishy but overall good. The gym could use updating though and lacks some of the basic equipment you would expect like kettle bells and foam rollers.

« All good except many failed attempts to deliver breakfast »

While I always love the hotel and check in is always a great experience, your room service breakfast service was plain awful -- since I have told this to the guest services manager with no follow-up, I decline to write it down again. Something easy yet something incredibly hard for the Sofitel to get right.

I went through a lengthy process of having my Club Accor membership consolidated with my registration from this stay so as to assure I would be emailed my statement and this does not seem to have happened.

« Excellent stay »

From the valet parking guys on your team did great work. Front desk accommodated me to check in at 730 am......this made a huge difference in getting ready for the day. Folks in your restaurant treated my wife and especially my daughter like she was a queen. We will definitely come back.

« High quality 5* hotel »

We were very pleased with the room and service we got. The room was spacious and functional, bed was comfotable and big. The breakfast was tasty, and it was possible to order not only from meny, but according to you wish. The receptionists and conceirge were very helpfull. All in all we had an amazing stay in the capital.

The room was 64 degrees and the heat did not work and it was cold and rainy out. Room was great but we were very cold

« Wasn't sure what to expect with not being familiar with the hotel, but you hit a home-run! »

This was a last minute booking for a (possibly rain-delayed) getaway so we (luckily) "stumbled" across the Sofitel... We have never stayed with your group and weren't sure what to expect. However, as we learned, the Sofitel is a class act. We also were celebrating an anniversary, and as that word trickled through the hotel, everyone went out of their way to do a "little extra" and not only was it noticed, it was extremely appreciated. - Sofitel, you have earned a loyal repeat guest.

A bientot! -Patrick

« Good business meeting »

It was a good experience. The only issues I had were that I requested a newspaper to be delivered to my door and it never showed up, a 10 lb weight in the gym is missing, and it was a bit noisy outside on Saturday evening. I always enjoy the hotel and hope to be back soon.

« serious problems checking in »

The stay was excellent, the rooms were outstanding, as always, service and quality of food at the restaurant and bar were very good. The problem was when we tried to checkin. The employee was not qualified, she said that my Amex Centurion card was rejected several times. I have to talk to a man with more seniority and he resolved the problem in 10 seconds. He detected there was a problem with your system and not with my credit card. I think that the first employee was not properly trained.

« Beautiful Hotel and Excellent Customer Service »

I always try to stay at the Sofitel Washington DC for my business trips. It is a beautiful, historic hotel with nicely appointed modern rooms, a nice gym/spa area and excellent customer service. The food in their restaurant is very good and I’ve had several breakfast meetings there. It’s also in a really great location at LaFayette Square with lots of great restaurants within walking distance. I will definitely be coming back there for my next trip.

« Great staff, very clean and beautiful property, room was spacious »

From the minute I arrived the staff was very helpful. The bellman showed me all the amenities of my room which was very helpful. The restaurant staff were great every morning and remembered us each morning and greeted us by name. The property was well maintained and clean. Room was spacious enjoyed staying here.
