Great stay. Appreciated dainties at Opaline Bar and Brasserie, it was around 4-6 minutes away by foot the hotel.
Would stay here again if ever in Washington. Staff was exceptional, everything was very clean. There was lots of good meals. Furthermore, Wi-Fi - was a nice touch...
I loved everything. It's a 10 point hotel.
Location is great.
Poor restaurant menu
During my stay with my family in Sofitel, I felt I was like at home. It was very comfy and the services were excellent. The bedroom was very neat and the bathroom design and facility were as well superb. The location was also very strategic since it was very close with White House and Mall.
Since I am a morning coffee drinker, the room does not provide a coffee maker so that I have to go to the lounge downstairs just to pick up my morning coffee.
The experience was uniformly excellent. Staff was unobtrusive but gave the distinct impression of being immediately available for any and all needs. Facilities were thoughtfully laid out, beautifully decorated, spotlessly cleaned and cared for, and thoroughly warm and inviting. Personal touches and attention were evident throughout the stay, at all levels and in all areas. Our expectations were met and exceeded in almost every way.
Beautiful lobby - loved walking into it. Great elevators - always in lobby and fast.
Good location, close to everything.
Staff was pretentious. While I appreciate the desire to be green, you should be able to get towels without asking. The second day, we were left with hand towels and a washcloth. I called to have towels brought up and it took 30 minutes.
Location was excellent within easy walking distance of White House and museums.
Gorgeous room, fabulously comfortable bed. Luxury bathroom. Spacious. Good location for White House and city tours
Its annoying not having WiFi as part of the package of a luxury hotel. Also I would have liked coffee facilities in the room.
The poor turn-down ammenities and their resistance to give any benefits to members or long stays and to kids. Not even chocolates for the night!! water only if asked, no milk and cookies for the kids (just the first day and only if requested).
Fairly central to the tourist spots
Arriving at 3am and finding the shower had not been cleaned.Black hair and tops of sample bottles left in the shower. I asked for it to be cleaned still not done properly sample bottle tops and black hair still left in the corner.
Its location is in walking distance to the main points of interests in the city
This is a truly charming hotel. The bedroom was very good and comfortable. But the public facilities were really excellent. The bar had a real buzz and was well appointed. The restaurant was excellent.
Very comfortable bed and good size room for the location.
Having to pay extra for WIFI and Valet Parking costing more than $50..
