"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
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
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
"We always return here!"
We always return to this chain because they provide complete luxury for a reasonable rate.Genuine Hotels.com 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!

It is located in the heart of DC. I walked everywhere.Genuine Hotels.com 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.

"close to all"
loved it!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Fabulous hotel! Large bathroom, comfy beds, great location.Genuine Hotels.com 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
"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
"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
"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
"Comfortable, Excellent, and Convenient location"
I stayed at this hotel for two days. The Sofitel Hotel had excellent staff who were very helpful and pleasant. The room was clean, and the bed was so soft and comfortable it was easy to fall asleep after a long day of walking. This hotel is conveniently located within walking distance of the memorials and the Smithsonian museums. Also, the restaurant […] within the hotel has wonderfully delicious food. My favorite dish was the butternut squash gnocchi. When we felt like eating out, there was plenty of small restaurants and fast food places to eat between the hotel and the places we went to sightsee. The Sofitel is a beautiful hotel. The free Wifi was also a plus. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great location, great comfort, expensive though"
I was very impressed by this hotel. The room size was surprisingly large for the heart of DC. And it had a separate sitting and sleeping area. The bathroom had a bath and separate shower which I love. The beds were very comfortable and each bed (I stayed with a friend in two double beds) had 4 pillows. There were ample windows but the coverings blocked […] out light very well and we heard no street sounds at all. The staff were exceptionally helpful and knowledgeable. Regardless of job title they were always willing to answer questions or make recommendations tailored to your likes/dislikes. The only cons I can think of are: 1) it is very expensive. But that is normal for the area. We didn't take a cab or the metro once during our stay because we could walk to every single major tourist attraction and there were plenty of restaurants of all kinds. And 2) the cost of the food in the hotel bistro was too much for us to eat there. It was higher than local eateries. I was disappointed by this because the items on the menu looked fantastic but were just not priced in a way we thought was reasonable. Note: we did have a few (expensive!) drinks at the bar and they made me a cocktail they had never heard of (and it is very difficult to find this particular drink so I don't fault them) but we told them how to make it and they did and it was delicious! They are focused on pleasing the customer at this place and it shows. Overall an amazing visit and would definitely go back again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Great service, the entire staff. Food was very good. Pasta on the menu was a surprise (French??) Would have like more classical French dishes .Genuine Expedia guest review
