  • 2.0.Poor

    Stay away from here!

    Dirty reception area, floors are so dirty they are sticky. The bathroom was in a pitiful state with old, dirty joints in the bath and shower and toilet with a seat that dated from the 90's (at least!). To top it all, a mattress that caved in in the middle and only belonged to the trash! I could not find another room close by but this was the worst two nights' sleep I have ever had. Do not understand how they can actually get to that bad a state. I am familiar with Sofitel and whilst not a luxury chain it is Accor's upper range... or so it should be. Certainly, his one does not deserve more than 2 stars.

    One of the nicest hotels in the city

    Overall a great stay. Room was huge and well-appointed. My only complaints are that the windows were really dirty and that some of the walls in our Prestige Suite room were covered in what looked like soda spray. Everything else was great. Valet parking was easy and reasonable with my Hotels.com silver discount. Within walking distance are some of the best restaurants in the city. Will definitely stay here again.

    Nice hotel. Great attention to detail with the exception of my personal OCD. Had to wipe down the glass tables and a few other areas (dust, hair, etc...)

    Romantic getaway

    We had a wonderful stay - I enjoy this hotel and would happily come back - only negatives were some noisy fellow guests in the wee hours of the night - and it was a little hot in the room - despite adequate A/C - but very enjoyable - the room was lovely and large - we had great drinks and bar snacks in the hotel lounge, and it's an ideal location.

    Totally Okay

    Decent but nothing special. The room was spacious but uncomfortable pillows. The whole place could use an update
