I stayed here for two nights and thought it totally great in all departments. There are some hotels where the culture clearly wants to excel, and this is one of them. I hosted a business breakfast for a party of guests and the arrangements and service were all excellent. In the evening the restaurant was also first class and the...

I stayed at the Sofitel with my two kids on a recent family trip to Washington D.C. The hotel was a wonderful base for our first family trip to the city. It is conveniently located about a block away from the White House, and it takes very little time to walk down 15th Street to the Washington Monument and the...

I travel a good deal for business, mainly in the US and most often up and down the Acela corridor from Boston to D.C. But I am careful with my own and my clients travel accounts so I often use Priceline to find good deals. Twice in the last six months I got a good price on this Sofitel l,...

Great Location, friendly staff, the rooms are nice, but small. We'd stay here again, but this isn't for a budget conscious traveler. It is in a decent location. I like how walkable it is from here to restaurants, China town, and many of the D.C. sights.

I usually stay at Four Seasons if one exists in a city I am visiting but the FS rates in DC were a bit rich for my blood. Sofitel is my next go to, and I stayed for 4 nights in late Feb 2017. Big difference in rates. Hotel was right up to expected Sofitel standards. Very classy and well...

I had not stayed at a Sofitel for some time. I was pleasantly surprised. Liked everything about it. My only complaint is that the room service service fee was pretty high, probably courtesy of the city (?)

The hotel was very nice and in a great spot for sightseeing. The rooms were a bit small, but yet still comfortable. The bathroom was large and well appointed, except that you only received two towels a day. It was troubling that there was no coffee maker in the room, but Starbucks is across the street. The bar in the...

First time to Washington and I don't think we could have picked a better hotel. All the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful, our room was a good size, modern and clean and it was the perfect location for a weekend of sightseeing. It is also close to the metro which was helpful as we took it to and...

We found the Sofitel to be a great base for our holiday. We were there early January when it was freezing and the hotel was very warm and inviting. We had a twin bed room and found it to be spacious for 3 people. Only thing I would have liked would be more light at night. The hotel is situated...

Service was good but hotel is not worth the price. Poor air circulation, some lights didn't work, Small room with no view. Small lobby. Rooms didn't look like the pictures. We moved to a different hotel after one night.
