Comfortable home base for apartment search in DC
Well-located hotel with spacious, comfortable, clean rooms. Great tub/shower and great mattresses. Appreciated the responsive, professional and warm service of Mahmoud and his front desk colleagues during my stay looking for DC apartment. Highly recommended hotel. Thank you!

Home away from home
Loved staying here. Valet parking was easy and Bruce at the front desk was so friendly and professional! The room was spacious, clean, quiet and met all my expectations. I’m very picky with my hotels and Sonesta is a win. I’m definitely staying here again.

Great property and service
I had lots of space in my room. Overall room and property was great. The main issue I had was 1) employees not waiting for an answer before opening the door to my room when they assumed I was gone 2) shower head was unsatisfactory. The employees, location and service were all great.

Bed bugs!
Had high hopes for this booking. A little off the beaten path, it seemed nice and not that far from Dupont Circle. The size of the Spa Room was amazing. Problems were that on the second day, there was no hit water ar all, which kind of defeated the purpose of having a giant tub in the room. The issue was eventually solved and we were waived the amenities fee. But the problem that couldn't be solved was the bed bugs. My wife still has a rash a couple of days later.
