I had booked this hotel on reputation of the name over some other similar priced options in the area. While very nice, I had expected more. For example the closet space was extremely small, and the offerings at the bistro very limitted. Not a bad place to stay, but next time will choose another hotel for higher end price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel has fantastic location off the Metro and near the White House plus convenient dining all around! Thanks, Sofitel Washington!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice but showing some wear"
Lovely neighborhood, great door staff, front desk and cleaning service, but the hotel is showing wear. The carpet and room furniture were peeling, door was not closing on mini bar, etc. overall nice place and the location to the sights was excellent. So much of DC is within walking distance from this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We are very happy with the hotel in every respect. The location is very convenient for visiting DC whether by walking or taking the Metro. Very friendly and efficient staff really made the stay enjoyable. Although we only had breakfast in the hotel, the quality of food and service of the restaurant is superb. We will definitely stay here again for our […] next trip to DC. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Friendly and convenient"
We had two rooms and the a/c in both had a thermostat lock at 65 degrees. DC weather was in the 90's and none of us could sleep under the covers because we are sure the thermostats were not calibrated. We had to tell the front desk about the janitorial staff not cleaning well and upon arrival in my room there was a wad of hair on the bathroom floor. […] We had to ask for a coffee pot and the old sofitels used to give you a loaf of French bread but not this one. The bedding had only the mattress sheet not fitted and the coverlet. I wonder if they wash the coverlet between stays? Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Pricey, but worth it"
Sofitel was centrally located, and the staff were VERY friendly and helpful. Added bonus: they have Lanvin products/toiletries which are the very best in amenities. Really enjoyed my five-day stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location nearby the White House."
My wife and I stayed there for three nights and really enjoyed because of the convenience for walking around the White House and the mall. It was very tough schedule for visiting many sightseeing spots but the luxury entrance and room made us feel like restored from the fatigue when coming back to the hotel, which was really comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel was beautiful, clean and appealing...but...."
Our hotel stay was very nice...but toiletries are not enough, it's as if they were left over from previous guest, and they are not replenished even on the 2nd or 3rd day. We have to asked for them. But over all everything was good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We have stayed there previously. The location and quality of the hotel were again top notch.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"My Favourite Hotel"
Out of the 5 cities and 5 hotels I stayed at, this was my favourite hotel. We caught the train into Union Station, and the can ride was about 10 minutes to the hotel. Upon arrival we were greeted by the lovely doormen, and checking in was a breeze. We got a Luxury King on the 10th floor (Room 1022) and it was very spacious. There was no coffee machine […] in the room, however there is complimentary coffee & tea downstairs. It's a quiet hotel, which means the receptionist and concierge were always available to help. The location is very nice. You can feel safe walking around there late at night. It's a 5 minute walk from the White House if you want to see that. But in my opinion, you shouldn't worry too much about location in DC. There is a lot to see and a lot to cover, so walking everywhere would be tough. So my recommendation is to stay somewhere downtown and get on a 'Hop on, hop off' bus tour as they'll pretty much cover everything. That being said, DC was the perfect hotel for me. It's downtown and not too far from everything. Would definitely recommend this hotel to someone. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great hotel. Worth the price?"
Stayed here for one night on a business trip. The location was very convenient to my business appointments. The rooms are nice, but I'm not sure the premium compared with other good hotels in the center if town (like the Kimpton hotels.) the room was very quiet and clean but not necessarily more luxurious than other hotels in the area. The bar was very […] nice. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Very nice hotel"
The Washington, D.C. Sofitel is a very nice, comfortable and roomy hotel. The bathrooms are big with a rain flow shower head and the beds have a very comfortable comforter. Don't touch the mini bar! Unless your ready to spend 6.60 per coke or soda and the mini bar is sensors so if you just move things in there it thinks you drank or ate them, just talk […] to the front desk on checkout and they take off everything that you didn't use.

"Too much useless engagement"
Only negative about this hotel: the front desk staff is overly talkative and tries to engage you in meaningless scripted dialog that just wastes your time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Excellent location - easily access all museums, White House, and restaurants. Service was outstanding! We had an issue with our A/C and the front desk immediately sent maintenance to look at it, and upgraded us to a new suite. I will definitely stay at this hotel again.

The stay was excellent. The treatment wonderful. The way everyone miraculously appeared to get what I needed/wanted was like they read my mind. Any opportunity I have to stay here again I will.

In town on business for 1 night. Sofitel very convenient to everything, extremely pleasant & welcoming staff. Even got upgraded to a suite on a mid-week night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed for the weekend. Room was relatively small and nothing too fancy or impressive for the price. AC didn't work well and last night quit working all together. Told the front desk next morning and all I got was " oh I'm so sorry" asked for a couple hour extended late checkout and was told sorry. Then received my $120 valet parking bill. Never drove […] the car the whole weekend. Won't go back Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

We couldnt be more pleased with our stay at Sofitel.

"Excellence thrives in DC at the Sofitel."
My daughter and I arrived early and our room was ready and waiting. At check in we were given excellent advice on how to see everything we wanted in the short period of time we had. The room was beautifully appointed with an incredibly comfortable king bed. The bathroom was perfect with a separate tub and shower. A makeup mirror for convenience. Warm […] and cosy slippers and robe and Lanvin products for pampering after a long flight. The ICI Urban Bistro is a foodie's dream come true. Justin and Paul made our dining experiences a delight. We were treated like long lost family. We are already planning a trip back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

overall we had a great stay. Room was very clean and comfortable and the location is great. The staff is very good. The fitness room is excellent. The food at the hotel restaurant was delicious.

Other than that everything was great. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I cannot say enough nice things about the staff at this hotel. We were in DC for the Nike Half Marathon. The hotel staff went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and relaxed for race day. The front desk asked the kitchen to provide bananas with peanut butter for us at 5:30 am before breakfast was available. The waitstaff was wonderful […] and efficient in restaurant. Our room view was poor due to a side wall location but the room itself was luxurious and spotless. Thank you to the staff at Sofitel! Highly recommend. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
