Brilliant location in the centre of this city and within walking distance or a short cab ride away from everything. Service was excellent and the concierge/front desk team Cynthia and Cameron were absolutely brilliant. Great atmosphere in the bar, and the rooms were quiet, and very comfortable and well appointed. We did get a 4 nights for 3 deal by...

I just completed a business-related week long stay at the Sofitel. Over the years, I've stayed here many times and have grown to really like the Sofitel for various reasons, through there are a few things in need of improvement: 1) Location is excellent - very close to K street, not for from several metro stops, and close to numerous...

We just returned from a six-night stay at the Sofitel Lafayette Square. Great experience. Considering the level of luxury, service and location, the rooms were very reasonably priced.

I stayed here for a week for the purpose of sight-seeing. The room was extremely comfortable and the only noise came from the room next door, which occurred only when they closed their door, which sounded like a slam. Every single employee was so courteous, from the maid to the concierge to the front desk. There was always a doorman...

We stayed in June 2013. Front desk, concierge, doormen all very cordial; bad experience with a waiter in the outdoor bar. Room size OK but just big enough for bed and one chair. Closet very small but iron, ironing board, hairdryer all included. No coffee in room but complimentary coffee bar in lobby each morning. Pricing seemed average to better...

We usually stay in the Sofitel hotels where we can as generally have good experiences there. This didn't differ. Our room was large, slightly odd layout with the beds squashed at one end, but being an older building I think there are constraints with where to put things. It was very clean, the beds were comfy and the bathroom immaculate....

OMG what can we say? As we are first time visitors to DC we were unaware of this hotel as it was chosen by our travel agent. The priority was location. O boy does it have a good location!!!
