5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The property has attractive styling, friendly and helpful staff, and a great location. The night's sleep was wonderful -- very quiet with comfortable bedding and a great shower. We enjoyed a delightful breakfast at their restaurant and valet parking was a breeze.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Close to the White House and metro station. Nice and clean room, although there was a light mouldy smell whenever I return to the room. “Breakfast buffet” included was stated in my room rate but there wasn’t buffet but instead you have to order, with a daily limit of USD 30. Staff didn’t explain this until I asked.

4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness

Great location. Good decor style. Ok-ish service - lukewarm, slow and a confusing check-in experience. Service is definitely sub-par compared with other five-star or Sofitel hotels we have stayed.
