"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 The bar area is a little outdated and expensive.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
"French hospitality a block from the Whitehouse"
We had an excellent experience from check-in to check-out. The rooms were very clean with spacious bathrooms. The gym was small but well equipped with weights, universal type machine, elipticals and multiple treadmills. The hotel even supplied ear buds if you forgot yours. The staff was beyond helpful with any of our requests. We slept well due to the […] lovely linens, black out curtains and quiet atmosphere. The restaurant in the hotel is upscale yet graciously accomodated us in jeans and sweaters. We only sampled a light meal but it was delicious and the service attentive. We would certainly stay again or in a Sofitel in another city. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Location is seriously fab. Hotel is great, the room was a bit small, but you are paying for location. It feels like an older Ritz property or something similar. The building has been redone, but redone well. The staff are really great, very well spoken, very very helpful and many of them have foreign accents which gives you a feeling that everyone is […] not from there. I like the vibe. The downstairs restaurant is always busy, every night of the week. Even the kids said "there is a party here every night." It is not a party hotel tho, just always people around. We would stay here again. If you are looking for a room with a view, make sure you ask. Some of the rooms face the interior (our junior suite did). There are rooms with a view down to the street but we did not upgrade, we didn't even notice anyway however, if that is important to you make sure you ask. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"What a lovely stay"
Everything was better than expected. BUT, and there's always a but, Our room faced an internal completely blocked exterior well. Not very nice view. And there was very little closet or drawer space. We were only in for an overnight stay. Didn't bring that much with us. Still we were very tight with storage. However, everything else was lovely. Great […] service. Wondered if the reduced rate through Hotels.com gave us an inferior room Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Excellent central location 2 blocks frm Whitehouse"
Gorgeous hotel, at proximity of all major attractions. Very courteous and helpful staff. Very accommodating with the children (we had our 6 year old twins with us!). Beautiful facilities. Stylish and comfortable bedroom and bathroom. Highly recommended.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great time staying at the Sofitel"
The hotel was in a perfect spot for our visit of Washington and attending a conference. The people could not have been any nicer or accommodating for me and my traveling companion. From the concierge, the sedan driver that picked us up from the airport, the door attendants that always greeted us with a warm welcome and helping us to get cabs- everything […] was first class. If I had to mention anything about what to fix- it would be the beds. They were VERY lumpy and soft- some people might like that- but I would have preferred a harder mattress. Other than that, great trip and I will definitely stay at the Sofitel next year for our next meeting. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a nice stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
This is overall a great hotel. I would definitely recommend it. There are three things that could be improved upon: 1) Internet service is not good. It is quite slow and it kept disconnecting and sending me back to the login page, more than four times in one single hour. 2) The room was very dimly lit for my taste. 3) I think I saw a mouse at the lounge, […] but I hear this is a common occurrence in Washington, DC. I saw one too in a five star hotel not far away a couple of years ago. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location! Walk to museums, restaurants, etc."
This was our first stay at the Sofitel and their staff made our stay perfect. They were so kind and went out of their way to make our birthday weekend special. The room was spacious, the bathroom was well appointed and the bed was very comfortable. We would absolutely stay there again next time we visit DC!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great but the bed was only a few feet from the door.Genuine Expedia guest review
We wanted a hotel close to the sights within in the City and this hotel had it all, very close to the White House and the other monuments were either only a short stroll away or the Metro was right behind the hotel and everything was accessible within a few stops. The hotel staff were courteous and friendly and we were welcomed in both English and French, […] the room was comfortable and very clean, the housekeeping staff brought us additional towels and bottled water when we requested it. We didn't use the hotel restaurant but we did help ourselves to the room service for breakfast and it was wonderful. Don't have a bad thing to say about this hotel!!

Lovely hotel in the heart of downtown Washington. Easy walk to all Smithsonian museums; monuments and memorials also walking distance, but a bit further. Staff was delightful. Room was roomy and comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
