Excellent location for main tourits sites. 5-10 minute walk to Washington monument and National Mall. Had not stayed in a Sofitel brand hotel before but would certainly consider it on future travels. Very comfortable room ( Standard King), did not eat in the restaurant or the bar but was busy and seemed fine. Couple of nice restaurants within walking distance.

I have recently given up on staying at the "charming," boutique hotels and now prefer the old reliables. Couldn't get into the Hay-Adams but I found this hotel to be somewhat better value and excellently located for my business meetings in DC. The staff is attentive and helpful, the rooms are relatively large, and the bathrooms are clean and accesible,...

Although I only stayed one night at this hotel the service we recieved was great. The location is wonderful for sightseeing and the staff were very friendly. Our room was a bit on the dreary dark side but the beds and bedding were comfortable.

Chris the bell-hop showed me to the suite and then proceeded to show me how to work everything things in the 3 rooms. The room was...

Upscale rooms with excellent staff. Rooms were clean, comfortable, and quiet. Attentive and professional staff, good restaurant and lounge. Expensive breakfast but not unanticipated. Would stay again.

My husband and I were disappointed that our usual Omni Shoreham Hotel in DC was completely booked for our yearly visit to DC. After researching so many hotels with apprehension, we chose the Sofitel for our visit because of many positive reviews, and because it was located close to many of the restaurants and places that we wanted to experience....

What an excellent place to stay. If customer service is important to you, then stay here, you won't be disappointed. The staff, service and rooms are fantastic. I took my husband to Washington, DC for his birthday and I had planned several activities that the concierge helped me coordinate. When we left the hotel, we felt as though we were...

My husband and I were in DC for a day and chose Sofitel based on reviews. We were a bit unsure if the hotel had been overrated but when we got there, we were pleasantly surprised. We were upgraded to a luxury room upon arrival and check in took less than 5 minutes. The lady at the reception asked the...
