On a Friday night, they were blasting music on the deck attached to the hotel bar. It was terribly loud and disturbing. When we called the manager and asked them to turn it down, the manager was rude, condescending, said it was out of their control (despite the fact that it was on their deck!) and if we didn't like...

I would recommend staying here if you want a short walk to the metro station. It's around the corner from the Mcpherson Square stop. We took the metro the night of arrival to reach the hotel and had trouble locating the hotel in the dark. But in the daytime it was very easy to locate. This hotel is situated in... More

Jewel of a hotel 2 blocks from the White House and across the street from wonderful places to have brekafast, lunch and dinner outside or in. The rooms and flat screens are very large and the beds wonderful. The bathrooms luxurious. Loved staying at the Sofitel and would go back next trip to DC.

Great hotel, fantastic location and very friendly staff. I do however agree with other reviewers that coffee/tea making in the room would be nice, although there is free coffee/tea making facilities in the bar, we only discovered it on our final morning!

We did have a few issues with our first suite but the staff were very helpful and it was all sorted with a complimentary meal and a change beautiful suite on the... More

The Sofitel is right in the centre or activity in DC and in walking distance to most major sights and museums, plus some of the best restaurants in Washington. The rooms are well appointed, well serviced and very clean; we were in a one bedroom suite. The front desk staff and housekeeping are very helpful and friendly, the only one... More

Location of this hotel is only a block away from White House, and a short walk to the monuments. Hotel itself is beautiful, rooms are nicely renovated, spacious and very comfortable. The bar has a nice outdoor area with live music on the weekend, and all the staff at the hotel were very helpful. I really enjoyed the stay, and... More

We had a lovely stay here. The rooms were very nice and the bathroom was quite large. Beds were comfortable and it is quite central for walking to many places. Ask for a corner room, they have the best views.

My first time in Washington DC for a business trip with my husband and after I found out his sponsoring hotel was booked up, I decided to book this hotel after reading the reviews from this site! I loved the location of this hotel, close enough to walk to many of the historical landmarks Washington DC has to offer. The... More

I booked here, despite the astronomical price, because I was under the impression that the bed would be superior, based on comments and descriptions. I have ortho issues. Horrible bed. Akin to an Army cot with a pillow-top add on. The rest was fantastic and the service is superb.
