The entire stay was excellent.The hotel is clean, up to date, and quiet. Being located in Lafayette Square offers sightseeing and restaurants within walking distance... this is quite an advantage over other hotels recommended for DC conferences. I will definitely recommend to others.

Convenient location in Lafayette Square. Many, many restaurants within walking distance. Super comfortable room and very friendly staff. Le Bar is very convenient and great well. I was upgraded to a larger room at check in, free of charge. That is a huge treat when it happens.

My wife and I stayed here as part of our honeymoon, and couldn't have been happier with the stay. Based in a perfect location for sightseeing (just minutes on foot from the White House and National Mall), it was also easy and affordable to get to other parts of town via Uber. From the moment we arrived, we were looked...

Our room was fine and the location is great. Second day we noticed a strong smell of sewage in the lobby and elevator....air freshener was used and the room was fine so no problem.

The Sofitel DC was a welcome relief from a recent experience at another hotel in the area. First off the service level is fantastic overall. The doormen didn't offer to help with the bags right up front upon arriving by cab but I might have missed the queue to engage them. Very warm greeting and professional at the front desk....

We booked two nights at the Sofitel in DC last week but only stayed for one night because the city shut off the hotel's water supply during repairs with no assurance that the water would resume. Not the Sofitel's fault (and they graciously let us off the hook on the second night's charge) but we had no way to know...

Hotel Sofitel is about 2 blocks behind the White House. Rooms are small, but clean, well appointed and modern. Staff was delightfully French, bar was excellent, and concierge staff made our dinner reservations at The Hamilton and were very friendly and helpful (thanks Cynthia!). Walking distance to The Mall, but it is a long walk. Easier to walk 3 blocks...
