I really enjoyed Sofitel DC! It’s easy to get to by metro from Union Station and 5 minutes walk from the White House. I actually found this Sofitel nicer than their Times Square Sofitel in NYC and much larger rooms. Keep up the good work Sofitel family!

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.

The COVID pandemic is becoming a great excuse. No room service for dinner or breakfast. $20 for a yogurt with cereal and one cup of tea.... I have traveled extended during those sad times. Frankly I have discovered the lowest. Sofitel you should be ashamed.

Booked this hotel through Hotwire for May 15, 2021 - one night staycation. $169 + taxes & $45 parking. Given a King room on the 2nd Floor. Upon entering the room, there was a powerful smell of weed and incense/candles! I immediately went to front desk clerk, informed him about the room odor. He asked if it was "clean"... I had no idea since the odor was so strong I immediately walked out without inspecting the cleanliness. Asked for an upgrade to a suite, but was informed there was no availability. The front desk clerk then re-assigned us to a bigger King on the 7th floor (room 712 - 10x better). Dinner across the street at Bobby Van's was great, and Sofitel's gym in the basement level was nice. I am a local & worked across the street and remember this block in the 90's. Lots of changes. The Sofitel in Chicago on Magnificent Mile is bigger, classier, and nicer, but this was hotel sufficed for our quick getaway.

Hands down the best hotel and awesome staff! Ive been to many hotels but the staff and service just went above and beyond. My fiancé and I had our engagement event and it turned out amazing without any problems. Food was WOW by a spectacular celebrity chef who did amazing work. My guests were so happy with the food and ambiance of the hotel. Our room was like heaven as we got the upgraded suite, it was super clean and luxurious. Bed was super soft and much needed after the event. I 1000% recommend you have an event here or come stay for a small getaway in the city, you will not be disappointed. Ask for Bruna if you want to host your event here, she has been just super awesome with all my wishes. She made it happen and without any issues. Thank you again Sofitel family, you guys truly made our event something to remember. We will be back!
