Was in DC for business and stayed at the Sofitel Washington DC. Beautiful hotel, courteous and helpful staff, in a great location (15th and H, NW; right by Lafayette Square, the White House, and Farragut West metro -- blue and orange lines). The food was quite good, and the ambiance on the terrace in the evening for meal and/or drinks is chic and enjoyable. Service was fabulous; when I had trouble with the wi-fi, they promptly sent up a technician who assisted me in a professional manner -- and gave me a tip of how to sign in so I wouldn't get charged a fee!
My room was quite large and very quiet -- probably because I was not facing the street. Tastefully decorated.
Comfortable accommodations, would probably stay here again the next time I am in town for business in DC.

Stayed here for the second time. Good location, nice bar. Clean room friendly service.
Room has a nice view of a roof and air conditioner. Next time will make sure to ask for a room with a street view. Rooms are quiet

This hotel is approximately one two to three blocks away from Lafayette Square. As such, it is also near the White House, and relatively close to the Washington Monument. My room at the hotel was spacious, and clean. The staff at the hotel was courteous and friendly, and more than willing to engage in conversation with me, make menu recommendations for dinner, and generally greet me whenever I left or returned to the hotel. Overall, I enjoyed my time at the hotel, and think it provides an excellent value to any travelers to the DC area.

My wife and I spent 3 days in DC and stayed here at the Sofitel. The hotel is literally on the edge of all the action and the white house. We were able to walk from the hotel to the front of the White House in probably under 5 minutes......perfect spot!

Also close by are a lot of great restaurants and nightlife spots. This particular hotel had very nice furnishings. The front desk was very welcoming and did a great job. The room was very chic......modern designs and probably some of the most comfortable beds I've slept on in hotels.

Room Tip: I would suggest asking for a room facing the white house or at least on the outside of the building...

Thank you for choosing Sofitel Washington D.C. Lafayette Square. It seems that you were able to take advantage of the many perks of our location- just steps away from the White House, but also walkable to many local restaurants and non-touristy sites as well. There is tons to see, so be sure to come back again soon!

I states at this hotel for just one night with my wife. This hotel is in a fantastic location, 5min walk from the White House and the hop on hop off. The service was also very good - rooms are a bit small but very comfortable.
