Our daughter lives in the DC and we have stayed in many hotels in the area. This hotel is one of the better experiences we have had. The staff is gracious and attentive. The service is excellent and the quality of food is also quite superior. Service is a little slow but it is in all hotels. Our room was quiet and well appointed. There were only two negatives for me were the very small closet, only two very small drawers and the color scheme is red and black which I personally do not like, but that is only a personal preference. It is a great hotel. We will stay there again.

Awful scents, old mattresses

Posted May 17, 2016 on Hotels
We will not stay here again. The hotel started pumping a floral scent into the common areas which caused a lot of difficulty for my wife who has allergies. This scent was so obtrusive that it prevented us from enjoying the restaurant and the bar. The bed in our room was a king bed but it should have been replaces a long time ago. Three nights was all we could stand and then we had to leave the hotel. The hotel is very close to restaurants, public transportation, historic sites, etc. The location is terrific.

정말 탁월한 선택이었다고 생각합니다. 전반적인 모든 서비스들이 훌륭했고, 호텔의 위치 역시 어디를 가기에도 편리한 곳이었습니다. 워싱턴이 뉴욕보다 오래 머물고 싶다는 마음이 들게 할 정도로 좋은 호텔이었습니다.

Wonderful location right near everything! Close to restaurants and many of the sights of DC, short walk to hop-on/off sightseeing tour buses.

Great location if you don't need to get work done

I really like this hotel, and have stayed here many times. The staff is simply exceptional, the location very convenient, the rooms attractive and comfortable... BUT: the Internet access is unpredictable and slow, and the support service is unconscionably bad. In other words, if your work actually requires high-speed access (for which they charge $17/day), you are out of luck. To be fair, again the hotel staff is fantastic -- friendly, thoughtful, attentive, engaged. When I have spoken to them about the Internet service, they've acknowledged that it's a perennial problem. But a solution is beyond their power, of course. There are also some signs of fatigue in the infrastructure (one of the elevators, for example, wheezes and shakes like each trip might be its last). I travel to DC frequently, so I'll try the Sofitel again from time to time to see if the ownership steps up because, as I said, there's much to like about this hotel. Two tips if you stay here: (1) request an Aeron chair from one of their conference rooms, because the standard chair for the desk is better suited for lounging; and (2) be sure to check out the White House Deli across H Street -- arguably the best chicken salad I've had in my life.
