Average property - but biggest disappointment was a room that smelled like smoke. Had difficultly sleeping. Called front desk to be moved - but they were apparently "sold out". Smoke smell was strong. Air conditioning did not work very well Completely overshadowed my experience. A hotel with potential, but unfortunate experience. Would not stay here again.

We have stayed here before Covid and its a nice, spacious hotel. Bed was super comfortable and room asthetically pleasing. However it was not as clean as it should be. Garbage in garbage can, phone had make-up on it (and did not work). Plus TV remote did not work right. Overall was frustrating to stay there.

I was satisfied with my overall stay, however I didn’t expect the bathroom to be as “dated” as it was. The bathroom toiletries and the bed were lovely. My view not so much.

I heard the wet floor in the bedroom leaking water from the bathroom was not so exciting and nice adventure and the room wasn’t so clean the bath wasn’t clean the toilet seat wasn’t clean they have to take care more about the Clean issue in the rooms because we living in pandemic time and it’s already risky and they have to put more efforts to clean the rooms much more than they do thank you

Most comfortable bed I've ever slept in! Friendly staff. Parking is expensive though.

Everyone we interacted with was friendly & committed to providing an excellent experience. One gentleman stood in the freezing rain to hail a can, we were handed an umbrella before leaving. Their concern for little details (instant hot water) make every visit special.

This place was awesome. Very friendly staff. I truly enjoyed my stay. They made everything as comfortable as possiblei qould highly stay here again

Excellent staff. Formal but not stuffy or pretentious.

Overall such a nice comfortable hotel with everyone so accommodating

The uniqueness of Sofitel Hotel is the French themed decor, the rooms are quite & clean, the beds are amazing 😉

Excellent location. The room was newly remodeled and sparkling clean.

Poor customer service. Traveled from out of town. Charged us but could not accommodate. There was also a shooting right outside the hotel and blocked traffic.

Pleasantly surprised at\ size of room and separate shower stall. Excellent service at all levels. Very comfortable bed with good pillows. Switched from down comforter to blankets as comforter too hot. No problem.

We will also have our Engineering to check air conditioning in the room you stayed to ensure that is working properly moving forward.
