Hotel lies very close to White House, well placed. Entrance hall small and reception service could be better, inattentive and not quick. Rooms are large and well appointed bathrooms. Restaurant is excellent , fresh salads and good breakfast.

My husband and I traveled to DC for a wedding. As part of the wedding party, we had a room in the hotel for the weekend. The room was beautiful but slightly small— however, it had a big comfortable bed, so I’ll take it like that any day! The french doors leading to the bathroom d

Firstly, the location is perfect, second, staff are welcoming, third, the standard room is just fine, and fourth, try to reserve the B & B rate (breakfast is good). Not sure why anyone would want to stay elsewhere unless you just don't want to be too close to where he who shall

We had stayed in the Sofitel in Chicago about 10 years ago and loved it so we picked the Sofitel in D.C. keeping this in mind. But, oh, it was a mixed bag.
The positives: great location; rooms nicely decorated; bed very comfortable; separate tub and shower in bathroom; WONDERFUL

What is your breakfast buffet
Hello Cynthia B, thank you for asking. There are three different options for breakfast here at Sofitel DC, we have a la carte menu at Opaline Brasserie in the main lobby, a Grab and Go lighter breakfast option at the Opaline Bar also located in the main lobby and a great in room option through room service if you wish to pamper yourself with breakfast in bed. Enjoy!

How much is parking?
Hi Courtney, it looks like we paid $25 per day. Pretty high I consider, but it was worth it. It is too hard to find a place to park on weekdays. You left the car at the hotel and took ubber or lift everywhere else.

Where are you supposed to park?
Parking in the streets is impossible. Hotels parking are $50-60. That’s why we took the bus from NYC and Ubered it in Washington DC.

How close is the African American Museim
The Museum is on 14th Street, same as the Willard. It is technically 2 blocks, but one of those is a very long block! Maybe a 10 minute walk.

"we travelled with a group and everyone said there room was excellent"
"If travelling as a family, do not take the "two double rooms"...as beds are too narrow"
"Street side, corner"
"All good, we had room over the busy main street at front of hotel but were not disturbed at all"
