Have stayed at Sophy many many times. Always a delight. Not this time. Most of the front desk staff was unfriendly, unwelcoming . Seemingly unaware that they work in the hospitality field. Mesler hostess same. Not the level of professionalism and warmth I have come to expect. Very disappointing.

Not the room we paid for
Booked a two queen deluxe room but when we got there they said the room was unavailable and gave us a queen with a small single size sofa bed instead. The sofa bed had a lumpy uncomfortable mattress. When we complained the hotel said that the reservation was made through third party and that’s the only room they had
