Pleasant stay
Our stay was superb. The rooms were very clean and the bed was so comfortable that i did not want to leave the bed... the room was stocked with goodies but no room to place my goodies. It was a pleasant stay and the crew or staff were very nice and friendly.

Great hotel in a perfect spot except now!
The hotel would have been wonderful had it been fully open. Due to Covid, and riots in the neighborhood, the exterior ground floor windows were boarded up and it looked a bit like a war zone. Didn't even look open when we first pulled up. Restaurant and bar closed due to Covid, even though restaurants in the area were allowed to be open, so no room service and no restaurant. Not sure why they weren't open, as they were allowed to be. Also, no valet parking, no help with the luggage, no room cleaning or any service for that matter. Not quite what I expected from a Sofitel, even with Covid. The espresso maker in our room didn't work, actually had the wrong water reservoir on it, and even though promised a replacement, it never arrived. Ice machine on our floor did not work, I finally fixed it by pushing a button on it to turn it on, don't know why they couldn't accomplish that. I think they really shouldn't have been open with those conditions. Lovely hotel though, and the "junior suite" we stayed in was a very nice room. Will look forward to staying there again when fully open and area isn't a "war zone".

After riots, restaurant closed, bar closed, had to walk 3blocks to parking as no valet. Would love to visit again when no COVID or protests.

Hairs in my tub, nobody was at front desk almost my entire stay. Checked in to not having any rags, waited an hour for rags, front desk lady knocked on the door at midnight. This stay was horrible!
