We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful on arrival. The only thing that tainted this hotel was when we arrived, we had got the Super Shuttle from the airport to the hotel, when the Super Shuttle pulled up out the front of the hotel, the staff asked the driver what he was doing here (he was dropping us off!). When we got out of the shuttle no one helped with our luggage and we struggled to open the door to the hotel. As a regular guest of the Sofitel chain i was really disappointed with the service and welcome we received from the staff out the front of the hotel. That aside, the location was perfect, close to the metro, near a Macy's and starbucks, near the hop on hop off bus tour route and only a block away from the White House. The rooms were clean and very spacious, the bathroom was beautiful and large which came with amazing toiletries. Every morning complimentary coffee and tea was available downstairs in Le Bar, and you could take it away with you. Downside to the room is that you can't use the fridge to keep the complimetary water cold, as it is stocked with mini bar products. But that seems to be the case with many hotels in the USA.
Overall a lovely hotel.
