Very Good8.0
Sofitel in DC
The common areas of this hotel are in need of a little updating, but our room was lovely and comfortable. The front desk upgraded us to a beautiful room on the top floor which was much appreciated. All staff members were most helpful and friendly. Great location!

Hooshang, us5 night trip

An attempt to add on fake charges at check out.
I did not appreciate that upon check out, staff assessed a mini bar charge (I did not consume), upgraded WiFi cost (which I did not use) and room service plus tax for each night’s lodging though I had prepaid everything through I even stated that at check in, female staff had confirmed all prepaid except for any minibar, restaurant and the Luke charges. Concierge, who doubled as check out staff for me, explained that the nightly room service and tax are not usually noted (and acts as a resort fee). It was only when I said I have my confirmation and summary that all has been prepaid that he waived the extra nightly charges that added a lot to a 3 night stay. I did not appreciate an attempt to scam me and believe a less assertive guest would have been duped. All extra charges need to be disclosed by hotel and for customer comparison. What the concierge tried to do marred an otherwise delightful stay. I ate at the bar the first two nights and the service and food were excellent.
