I like the location. It is very close with Whitehouse, Capital hill, National Mall and Memorial Parks, Museum and etc.,. I went with my family on Christmas day. It seem like best time to go their if you don't like crowds. I have one infant so they offer crib to sleep. I didn't spent time in the hotel as much because we try to get as much as we can and all museum require you to get in line so better leave early. The room was very cozy. And my husband was love their complimentary coffee, we stopped by every day before went to Museums. Overall I Like this hotel and may be consider to stay here again next visiting.

Hotel's Favorite
First time at a Sofitel. Was in town for business and this hotel was close to everything. Metro is a block away. Monuments a few blocks away. Staff was great. Room was good size, comfortable and well appointed. Bathroom was spotless. No complaints. I cannot think of any negative with this stay. Wow. I would stay here again.

We stayed in a luxury room. There was a lot of natural light in the room, extremely comfortable bed, and very clean. There were a few things missing though, especially considering it was more than a one night stay, and due to COVID, they do not enter rooms during the stay. We only had two pillows rather than four. We had one bath towel total, a partially stocked mini fridge, a broken espresso machine with only one espresso cup and one regular espresso. Overall, the room was under stocked with things we needed. We had to call for more towels, pillows, espresso, cups, and a new espresso machine. They brought them right away; however, I felt that we should not have had to ask at all for things, like more than one bath towel in the room for example. The hotel is in a great location, near The White House. I would recommend staying here; however, for it being rated 5 stars, I would’ve expected the room to have had all the essentials we needed without having to ask.

On a random road trip around VA we found the Sofltel Washington DC to have amazing rates for a five star hotel, so naturally we booked two nights in a suite. We were greeted with nothing but smiles and moved to our room, which had been upgraded. Our jaws dropped as soon as we opened the door to our spacious hotel accommodation and wonderful city views. The king size bed might be the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. Every time we entered or exited the site the staff was overly nice and pleasant to talk to. We could easily walk anywhere we wanted to in the city and took lime bikes to tour the monuments. We fell so much in love with this hotel that we actually pushed back our flight home a day in order to enjoy the room for one more night.
