Sofitel Washington is superbly located whether visiting Washington DC on business or pleasure. I cannot remember the last time we stayed at a city centre hotel where the staff were so polished and approachable. Our room was one of the executive suites and lived up to our expectations. Great beds, and really welcoming decor in a modern traditional manner if... More

We spent 5 nights in this hotel and it is close to all Washington DC attractions, White House, Treasury, Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, The Smithsonian Museums and the National Gallery . I can say that I was the President's neighbor for a short time. The rooms we got overlook the street and it was quiet. The service and staff were... More

We were lucky to be upgraded to the suite. It was a huge room and beautifully decorated. There was even a guest bathroom. The location is perfect for visiting the national mall highlights and is just a couple of blocks from the White house. The patio bar was very nice and popular every night. Only issue was that there is... More

We chose the hotel primarily because of its location, just a jump from the White House, for a "lets play tourist in DC weekend." However, the hotel itself is excellent as well. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. Elegant furnishings and fabrics. The hotel bar and restaurant are both very nice destinations in themselves. This is an easy hotel... More

This is a little thing, but it irked me enough to write a bad review: I felt totally ignored by the staff when there were white males in suits around me. I didn't get the same attention or "Good morning, can I help you?" from staff members or bell attendants. The rooms are fine. Small, but clean. Overall, not worth... More

We recently used the Sofitel as the base for our wedding in Washington, DC and it was fantastic! From the convenient location to the well appointed rooms to helpful staff, I do not believe that we could have chosen a better hotel. Our guests had nothing but positive comments about their rooms and our junior suite was perfect! A Bose... More

Very nice property, well-located a couple blocks from the White House and a block from the McPherson Square metro station. Front desk staff were all great, especially Emily who graciously accommodated our request for a quieter room (our first room was on the second floor directly over the front entrance, and early morning conversations on the sidewalk woke my husband)....
