My wife and I stayed at the Sofitel at the height of the Cherry Blossom Festival. The hotel is conveniently located near McPherson Square and an easy walk to the White House, Tidal Basin, the Smithsonian, art museums and other monuments. Rooms are clean and elegantly appointed. The rooms are also spacious, especially by European standards. The staff is extremely... More

Stayed here for one night while visiting the city to see the cheery blossoms. Got there earlier then check-in was scheduled for so we decided to have a drink outside. We were instantly greeted by Anna. She sat with us for about a half giving us advice on where to go and where to eat and what to see. She... More

When I arrived at the hotel, the night of Feb. 10, 2014, the young woman at the front desk said, "we've upgraded your room to a suite. When I got up to the 10th fl. it was a magnificent suite with an awesome view. Everyone at the hotel made me feel like royalty. Everything in my suite was in order,... More

Stayed here for a long weekend in December. Our room was very comfortable and surprisingly quiet. The people at the front desk were very helpful, and the bellmen were exceptional. We did not eat at the restaurant, however, we had drinks at the bar and enjoyed that very much. Would definitely recommend this hotel to others and plan to stay... More

We just got back from a 6 night stay here that was very nice. The staff were friendly, courteous and very helpful. The beds and pillows were perfect for weary traveler folks like us. Only complaint were the slippery marble floors in the bathroom. We ate breakfast and dinner at their Ici Urban Bistro- breakfast we felt was expensive but... More

The rooms are very comfortable, with very good bathrooms and good towels. The bed was very comfortable, and the pillows soft and supportive. All told, the hotel is in a good location, just across from the White House and represents a good base to visit DC from.

The sofitel is relaxed, yet sophisticated with a nice atmosphere and in an ideal location. Dinner in the restaurant was good without being mesmerized by the service which was disappointing (considering the none busy period i dined at). The rooms are pretty much perfect, good sized and even had a bath which you dont always get at inner city hotels.... More

Me and my partner have just arrived from a 3-night stay at Sofitel Washington D.C. Location was excellent, as we were in D.C. to watch Cher concert and wanted to stay in a place close to main tourist attractions and the Verizon Center (where the concert took place). Metro station is just 1 ½ block away. We arrived on Thursday... More
