"Very Quiet Room (even on the second floor)"
Overall Sofitel never disappoints, and was a very nice room on the front corner of the building on a lower floor. While I was a little nervous about the second floor room because of the street noise, I never heard anything and sleept very well. The room was alway clean and in order when I would get back from the office, and there was only slight wear […] and tear on some of the carpet and curtains. When in DC for business of more than a couple of days at a time, I try to stay at the Sofitel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best Hotel in DC, With The Best Staff!!"
THIS HOTEL IS WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!!! I cannot express fully how great this hotel is! I was not sure how my first solo vacation would go, but it turned out to be amazing! A hotel is just a building. It is the people that work there that make you want to come back. The entire hotel staff is so helpful and it seems like they REALLY want to make your experience […] there amazing. I stayed at the hotel for five nights. When it was time to check out, I didn't want to leave! The hotel has great amenities. The gym is great. The food is WONDERFUL! I hope that I will get to one day return to Sofitel Washington DC Lafayette Square! Shout out to all the wonderful staff that makes the hotel run gracefully! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

I've never had a better experience! From beginning to end, everything was excellent!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"What a wonderful hotel."
We will absolutely seek Sofitel for future travels. Wonderful, friendly service and luxurious room and common areas. First rate. Our only problem was that one of our rooms wasn't ready the night of our arrival. There had been an "accident" which required extensive cleaning. We were offered another room at a nearby property but opted for a cot in our […] room for one night. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"excellent quality, service and location"
I have been staying at this hotel regularly for over ten years. Never disappointed and always pleased with aspect of the stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
Beautiful hotel with outstanding service. Room was small but comfortable and the hotel is just around the corner from the White House and close to many points of interest. I will stay here again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very welcoming staff, clean and beautiful hotel. The room view wasn't great, even after we upgraded the room for $30. In the bathroom there wasn't enough towels for two people. But nice and clean hotel after all.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice walking distance of white house"
Great location walking distance of main monuments :)Genuine Expedia guest review
"Amazing Staff to go along with its European Decor"
Sofitel made our Washington stay just Perfect. Not only was it a classic European Luxury Hotel but it also had staff members who were so refined, knowledgeable, welcoming and helpful from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. The day I stayed in because of the flu, they personally delivered complimentary tea with lemon and honey to make me feel […] better. What else could you possibly ask for? Highly Recommended.

"Great hotel, very nice courteous staff; willreturn"
This hotel is North of the Whitehouse within walking distance and very close to a metro station. The hotel itself was very clean and classy. We slept well every night on a very comfortable bed and hardly heard any noise. The staff was very friendly especially the door men. It was my wife's birthday and so I wanted to stay in nice place and this was […] really great. The restaurant in the hotel was to pricey for us to want to try and there are so many good restaurants in DC we did not miss it. Also, there is a fridge in the room but it is the hotel minibar. I would rather just have a real fridge. We moved some items out to store some water and that trips a sensor which adds a charge to the bill. They confirmed the charge with us on check-out and we said we did not use anything from the bar and they promptly removed the charge. So you DEFINITELY should review your bill in such hotels. But we loved this place and would recommend and return. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful in every way"
Everything was great. The staff could not have been nicer and the rooms were very clean and orderly. Food was a bit expensive but really good. We would defiantly stay here again. The White House was just around the corner as well as the subway stop McPherson square. Very pleased.Genuine Expedia guest review
Remarkable experience. I am nobody from nowhere and came with my family. I was greeted by name, the Staff was incredibly attentive and the location and facilities were both superlative. I will be going back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Could not walk as the weather was dreadful."
The front desk (reception) was understaffed! At nearly all times.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"5 min away White House's northern backyard!"
Great location, great staff, nice rooms, short but overwhelmingly pleasant stay. We actually walked from Union station the morning we arrived - took us 45 min to the hotel. We did make a quick stop at a local brewery.Genuine Expedia guest review
"We always return here!"
We always return to this chain because they provide complete luxury for a reasonable rate.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"excellent location, just around the White House"
Hotel installations are excellent. At the begging it was a bit counfusing to be greeted in french, but then I got used to it and I liked it. It gives a touch of sofistication.Genuine Expedia guest review
Danny at the front desk was exceptionally helpful. Room clean and bright. Staff very pleasant and we would definitely stay there againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to the White House and the Mall"
This was my second time staying here. Again, it was simply perfect. I was able to walk down to check out the White house and the other monuments and museums! Quality of this hotel is outstanding. It's a little pricey, but you get what you pay for! My only negative is the price of the valet. About $54 with taxes for one night of parking seems exorbi […] tant!

"We loved this hotel!!!!"
The front desk staff was amazing. They were very efficient and made my stay one to remember. The hotel is very nice.. I love that it has the perfect mix of both the classical and modern era! The best was one of the best I've ever slept on!!Genuine Expedia guest review
the service was amazing, in the lobby, for valet and in the bar. great food and drinks in bar area, room was very tasteful and comfortable. bathroom was green and ivory marble, with a glass rainfall shower and clean bathtub. the only thing we didnt have was a view, but a block away from the white house and pretty much everything didnt make that a big […] deal.

"Great hotel right in downtown Washington DC"
I got to the hotel pretty late after a _very_ long day of travelling to get there, so I was a mess. The staff was super friendly and got me to my room without delay. The bed was comfortable. The room was in great shape, and the bathroom was huge! And the best part was that the bar was still open :)Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice but very expensive!"
Nice and plush hotel, staff is very friendly. the bed or mattress was very hard so if you do not like a hard mattress look elsewhere. The bar area is a little outdated and expensive. The location is excellent and close to everything!Genuine Expedia guest review
"close to all"
loved it!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Fabulous hotel! Large bathroom, comfy beds, great location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a wonderful stay in DC last Saturday. We really enjoyed the convenience of the hotel to various DC attractions.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great hotel, I'll definitely stay there again when I'm in DC. It's right in the heart of everything, just a couple short blocks from the White House. The bed/pillow/blanket were heavenly ~ that's the best I've slept in ages. Everyone working at the hotel and in the restaurant where we had breakfast was really nice and friendly. Highly recommend!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Luxury hotel near attractions"
Room was very clean and bed was awesome. Close to lots of restaurants, White House and convenient to many museums.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent location and hotel"
Couldn't be more centrally localized to doing DC's tourist attractions. The staff was excellent and the concierge( Cynthia and Germain) was superb and made great suggestions and reservations were made within hours notice. I will definitely recommend and would stay again. The room was large as was the bathroom, had a separate shower and tub. The bed […] was extremely comfortable, my only complaint would be the pillow was too soft. Great place!

"Luxury made up for the disappointment"
This was a great stay... I did not get the room that I thought I had booked... but the amenities and facilities more than made up for that slight hiccup.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel by attraction areas..."
Love the hotel and its warmth....the staff was excellent. Saw quite a few of stars from the BET Award Event.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Would stay again"
Service and ambience were the perfect blend of professional and personal. We have stayed in other areas of DC, but the Sofitel's location fit our itinerary .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Frequent, prepeat guest. That should say it all."
Consistently good and comfortable stay with a great location. The hotel is well maintained and there is/are always familiar faces around the hotel, yet even the new staff that have come through the hotel are of a similar quality.Genuine Expedia guest review
"What I expected"
Arrived and needed to change room from King to 2 queens and extend stay to 2PM from normal 12PM checkout. This was done without question. Room was as advertised with upgrade pointed out at check in.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, top notch service!"
Clean comfortable room and employees were very friendly and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Washington DC hotel"
The check in lady was Asian, faked a French accent, and spoke in English. HilariousGenuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is perfectly located, right around the corner from the White House and within easy walking distance to museums and monuments on the mall. The rooms have been recently updated and are clean and comfortable. Breakfast is available downstairs and provided us with a pleasant way to start each day. The hotel staff was polite and helpful, providing […] maps and advice as well as hailing cabs for us in frigid January weather. The bar on the ground floor was a great place for cafe au lait or cocoa after a day of sightseeing. Remember that like most European hotels and restaurants, the tip is very often included in your bill. I would definitely recommend this hotel and will stay there again on my next trip to Washington, DC. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent Hotel, Fantastic Service, Great Location"
This hotel was so convenient my only regret is not having more reason to be at the hotel! my room was extremely comfortable, the beds posh, and the service amazing. All of the staff were extremely considerate and attentive.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very nice hotel close to the Whitehouse"
It´s a very good experience For family and for couplesGenuine Expedia guest review
"A little piece of France!"
Felt like I was on a quick get away to Europe. Stayed the night for my birthday. Very close to the Warner theater, where we saw a show. The staff, room, amenities and restaurant were amazing. Le Bar was a bit slow with service.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Visit to Washington DC"
We arrived on 25th December 2013, the location is great the staff and service was excellent the room clean and the bed is comfy. It was really a good choice I defiantly recommend the hotel and I will keep it in my not book for future visit.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Venue and Location"
Overall, a great location. Within 7 minutes of the Metro Red and a 3 minute walk to the Orange/Blue lines, which takes you to most of the important sites, including Smithsonian and the National Mall. The actual room, however left something to be desired. The bed we were on felt like it was a wood plank with cotton stuffed in it with a white sheet. The […] water pressure was almost non-existent in the shower, and the towels they provided felt like 10 grain sand-paper. terrible. Would expect better from a 199/night hotel, especially one so well-appointed otherwise, with such great staff service. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Amazing facilities with only two complaints. First, the linens are HOT. Every night we were there, we woke up sweating under the comforter (there's just one big comforter without any thinner sheets). Second, the hotel is very conveniently located near the White House and the metro. The downside of that? It's right next to the metro and Lafayette Square, […] which means there are a good number of homeless meandering, especially if it's cold. It's not a deal breaker, but beware.

"Staff were exceptional - helpful and accommodating"
Staff were exceptional. - helpful and accommodating. Location brilliant. Thanks for a great Washington experience. Room had lots of light.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is luxurious yet comfortable. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The bathroom is "to die for" especially the lighting. Very flattering. Only complaint is that they never use a top sheet and we always forget to request one before arrival.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Awesome place! Staff were so attentive, friendly and helpful..Genuine Expedia guest review
Location... location... location! We booked a last minute room at the Sofitel for NYE and it was awesome. We were in walking distance to many NYE festivities, so we didn't have to worry about cabs or driving. I love how accommodating and friendly the hotel staff were. The only drawback would be the size of the room. The room was a little smaller than […] expected, but typical of a downtown DC hotel. Aside from that, it was pure luxury and I can't wait to go back again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to the White House"
It was my wife's birthday and they left a special gift in the room for her, very thoughtful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cannot wait to try their other locations!"
First off the hotel staff was phenomenal, after the front desk attendant had small talk with us she found out we were staying for our anniversary and bumped us up to a nicer room free of charge, after dropping our luggage off we went out to dinner and came back to a large glass bottle of Evian and complimentary dessert of tiramisu with 'happy anniversary' […] written on an edible sugar bar. The room was spotless, very comfortable bed, nice decor, very nice bathroom with a separate shower stall and nicely sized bath tub, well stocked mini bar with speedy and delicious room service. If I had a down side to our stay it would only be that I felt valet parking was steep as was the mini bar prices. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
