Good hotel in downtown DC

Posted 28-Jul-2014
Pros: The bathrooms in the rooms are of a generous size and the shower is fantastic.
Cons: The rooms are a little small, but the bathroom is tremendous.
We enjoyed out stay at the Sofitel. The staff was incredibly courteous and could not do more to help us during our stay. The hotel is close to the White House and within walking distance of the Smithsonian museums and the US Capitol. There are also great restaurants all around the hotel.

Great bedding

Posted 19-Jul-2014
Cons: A front staff could have spoken slower, not like a robot.
Location: Very convenient to visit major tourist spots.
Although I was not happy about long waiting at check-in (in a not busy hour), after all I have good impression about the hotel because of clean and pleasant room with quality bedding, the most important element of hotel rooms for me. It is conveniently located to visit major tourist locations.

Great location and excellent quality

Posted 10-Jul-2014
Pros: The service and the location
Cons: Host in the "Ici" dining room at breakfast
Location: All Washington sights
Our recent stay was very comfortable, with excellent service and lovely rooms. We were greeted by name by all staff, and found the atmosphere relaxed and tasteful. The concierge was very helpful and knowledgeable, as were the staff on the desk, and the housekeepers. The only minor negative was that there didn't seem to be a host in the dining room at breakfast each day. We were there 6 days, and were never seated reasonably quickly. Perhaps this was because it was the 4th of July weekend and staffing in the dining room was not as it normally should be.

Good Location

Posted 9-Jul-2014
Walking distance to the White House, just around the corner. The hotel breakfast is expensive, there are two McDonald's near by, open from 5am. There is a Bose Wave radio in the room, with a iPod docking (the old 30-pin connector, not the Ligtening for iPhone 5/5s). Staff are friendly, room has quality feel as it should be for a Sofitel. Don't expect to have a good window view, there isn't any thing to see from the windows.

What? No top bedsheet?

Posted 8-Jul-2014
Pros: Convenient location.
Cons: Provide bedsheet!
Location: Convenient location.
The hotel does NOT provide top sheet in between the comforter and the bed, which makes sleeping very uncomfotable especially during summer even with the air conditioning on. Seeping directly under the duvet makes sleeping very uncomfortable and hot.
