We spent 3 nights at the Hotel in mid July and had a superb time. Rooms are of a good size, well appointed and provide the usual Sofitel levels of comfort. The Bar and Restaurant offer good quality food and beverages and the staff provide an excellent level of service. The Hotel is well situated being close to major attractions... More

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)... More

The Sofitel brand continues to celebrate its French heritage with menu items, signage in French and other European touches. We were here for one night and its location right by the White House and the Mall are perfectly suited to both business and leisure travelers. We ate at Le Bar where prices are less expensive and were glad they had... More

The Sofitel DC is located near Lafayette Square just a few blocks from the White House. It is very centrally located within Washington and has convenient access to the Metro system a half block away. There are excellent restaurants very near, including the ICI restaurant in the Sofitel and Bobby Van's Steakhouse just across the street. In addition, there is... More

Sofitel is a well known European brand that has select locations in North America. I booked us a luxury king, and surprised to see our room was located on the second floor. There was a large window, the bed was comfortable, the room wasn't large, the bath amenities however were a great size! The room was nice but not outstanding.... More

My husband and I stayed 4 nights here, had an upgrade to luxury king, however the room was quite small, more so due to the huge furniture which were very classy. I asked the front desk for a larger room but non was available as the rooms were sold out, however they promised me a larger room next day. Next... More

This hotel is staffed more to cater to the business traveler than the vacation traveler. I happened to be on vacation. My family received very little personal attention. The concierge passed out water and umbrellas which was much appreciated. However, in terms of restaurant, transportation, or site seeing recommendations were concerned, I received almost nothing that was very helpful. The... More

Convenient to many DC attractions. Excellent service. Service in restaurant was excellent. Recommend the apple dessert. No coffee machine in room. Very nice bathroom. Concierge did extra research in finding a parking space for our electric vehicle!
