Not good. One of the beds had no sheets. There was no book, in the room, describing the hotel or it’s services. In fact, I had no idea that room service was available... Next time?? Marriott!!

« Weak customer service, wifi did not work »

The stay was ok, but when I tried the wifi service, the prompt screen did not recognize my name or room number. After trying several times with no success, I tried the front desk. The person who answered the phone was very curt with me and told me "there's nothing I can do". She paused for a moment, then said I will have the IT person call your room. They never called or followed up with me. Very disappointing, as I could not use the wifi.

After Global Luxury Suites leaving us in the cold, we found the Sofitel across the street. We're so glad we did. The rooms were great and the staff was amazing. This hotel is close to EVERYTHING; museums, white house, restaurants and public transportation.

« Anticipated our every need »

Our visit to the Sofitel was delightful. It is perfectly situated in the District of Columbia near the White House and the National Museum of Women in the Arts. We invited our wedding guests to stay there and all of them said their stay was exceptional. The staff is very accommodating, professional, and friendly both on the phone and in person. The rooms were spacious and well appointed. Lastly, our meals there were delicious!

« update gym/weird room setup »

just fine. i was in room 1114 -- the layout there is weird. don't know if you can do anything about it, but it seems like you ought to put the desk in the bedroom where it would be actually useful. putting it in the hallway by the door is of no use to someone doing work. In addition, it's long since time you folks updated the gym machines. I've been staying at the hotel for many years -- the machines in the gym are basically the same as they've always been and do not work very well. you charge premium prices and are a premium hotel -- spend some money and get some decent gym equipment.

I was impressed with the friendliness of the staff, the clean rooms, the close proximity to the national landmarks. I was not impressed with my final bill which included a "guest amenity charge" and "parking garage tax." I wish that was explained when I initially booked the hotel room.

« Front check in staff were horrible »

The worst I have ever experienced. The suite we reserved was not ready for us until our second day of our stay. We were initially promised that we would be able to move into our suite later in the day of our first day, but then that quickly changed. When asking why, the assistant manager flat out said that his staff had “lied” to us. Also, during this conversation another staff member interrupted our conversation by calling me disrespectful when all I was doing was trying to find out why we couldn’t move into a room that I had reserved well in advance & was also promised by a staff member earlier that day during our check in. This will certainly be our last time staying at a SOFITEL.
