Superb 9.2 From 1,405 reviews

Good 6.0
Not overly impressed
There was no turndown service, no bottles of water the second day. On arrival I asked if there were any perks for being a club Accor member and was told it would be looked into but received no further info. There was an unexpected $25 per night charge added to the bill which was not quoted in the reservation rate. Parking was $55 plus tax per day and also not specified in the reservation process. Well located, but not up to other Sofitel s we have known. Also difficult to check in wit a car because of the limited space in front of the hotel and lack of attendants when we arrived. Had to circle the block while my husband hopped out to find help.

Very Good 8.0

Had a very nice 4 night stay. Room was perfect. Location is ideal. Walk to everything. My only meal in the lobby restaurant was lousy. I had breakfast and I was disappointed. Did not go back. Loved the outdoor seating of the bar.

Amazing. Two outstanding individuals who made our stay exceptional were M. Stephane (concierge) and M. Taofik (waiter). They both went above and beyond to make our trip unforgettable.

Joseph, us2 night business trip
Exceptional 10.0
Considering the circumstances with the pandemic, my husband and I were a bit nervous about staying at a hotel. However your staff was friendly and cautious, with conditions communicated prior to our stay and in the hotel, which reassured us that you were taking necessary precautions. Of course, it seemed like we were the only guests in the hotel so no fear of bumping into anyone or sharing the elevator. 😄

Stay here!
I love this hotel. My 5th year in a row we stay there during Thanksgiving. Fantastic, friendly staff, perfect location, great ultra clean and bright rooms! One of the best hotels going!!

Not 5 star standards
Rooms are very much in need of some TLC, thus making it not worthy of a 5 star ranking anymore.
