Hotel's Favourite
My fiance (now husband!) and I stayed at the Royal Sonesta in DC for 2 nights for our wedding with our dog. We worked with Allie R. who was amazing at coordinating everything and made sure everything went smoothly. We stayed in a King Executive Studio Suite and were amazed by the large size of the room was and the gorgeous views we had of the city! The hotel room was spacious, exceptionally clean and they even included thoughtful touches for our dog such as a fluffy dog bed and 2 large bowls for food and water. In addition, all of the staff that we encountered were friendly and helpful whenever we had any questions or needed anything. The location is also superb - it is located on a very cute street with lots of bars and restaurants and in the heart of Dupont Circle. We can't wait to stay at the Royal Sonesta again!

My stay at Royal Sonesta DC was by far the most welcoming and comforting experience I’ve ever had. The staff was amazing and their customer service skills are unmatched! No matter the question or need they went above and beyond. Valet was very patient with me as I kept forgetting things in my car and they were very accommodating for my dog. I stayed in the Executive City View Studio with 2 queen beds. The room was huge, had beautiful interior, and that bed was pure heaven - If you aren’t ready to go to sleep do not lay down I promise you will not make it out that room! I was able to do some writing at their comfortable desk space that was able to fit all of my work equipment and my wine lol. The Royal Sonesta will definitely be my go to hotel every time I’m in DC. They were 15 mins away from Howard which was a bonus for me as it was freshman move in week. My only issue was that I couldn’t take a bubble bath due to the stopper not working.

I wish staff told me initially about complimentary wine from 5-6pm everyday. The hotel was very accommodating. Gym is decent. Pool is okay. Great location. I would def come back again. Staff was friendly. There’s a guy that worked at night that has an array of card tricks.

Very dissatisfied with my stay - my room had cockroaches (both alive and dead) and filthy sheets. Hotel offered a refund but now is refusing to honor. Additionally, they have an amenity fee ($25/night) which is not referenced anywhere on any booking page and you're only alerted to after you check-in. Incredibly unprofessional and disgusting hotel - I will never be staying there again.

For a hotel like the Sonesta I expected better. The lobby and halls were constantly hot, no house keeping the entire weekend, the mini fridge I put drinks *I bought* in didn't keep things cold, and the door to our room did not shut all the way or latch correctly. Some of the folks who I was with and who were staying in other rooms said that their phones did not work and had been disconnected. I now have a $300 per night security hold on my credit card because according to desk staff, "I might break something or eat at the restaurant." neither or which I did.

Without oversharing, I was having a very difficult time and was on the verge of a breakdown when I booked a night at the Royal Sonesta day of. I desperately needed kindness and peace in that moment, and Bruce/his staff certainly provided it! They made me feel at home from the second I walked in, even telling me at check in that the only rule for my stay was to have fun. Bruce also helped me quickly resolve a price matching issue and I ended up staying a full week. I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else - the hospitality is unmatched! The daily complimentary $10 worth of snacks/refreshments + free waters that come with the room were a nice touch and there's a free wine hour every evening as well. The location is great and the rooms are clean/well-stocked, not to mention the bed is heaven. The food from the restaurant downstairs was also excellent. I don't have any complaints besides wishing there was a microwave in the room. Thank you to Bruce and his team for making this the best hotel experience I've ever had!

We found ourselves needing a hotel in D.C. many times in a 5 week period late last summer, often with little notice. The Royal Sonesta became our "go to" spot. They always remembered us and greeted us warmly. They also handled a challenging HVAC situation with grace. It was still the height of COVID and they delivered a safe, clean room experience. They were all champs and did their best to make things special for us. The rooms were really stylish and large! Just a fantastic experience.

Was visiting on a business trip and was greeted by the sweetest welcome package in my room...chilled beverage, snacks and handwritten note wishing me success in my meetings. Was offered wine while I checked in and the staff were amazingly friendly and helpful. The GM gave me advice on a jogging route that would take me past some of the national monuments, which led to me having a very memorable morning out seeing the sites before my meetings. Hope to return soon!
