My husband and I were in DC for a day and chose Sofitel based on reviews. We were a bit unsure if the hotel had been overrated but when we got there, we were pleasantly surprised. We were upgraded to a luxury room upon arrival and check in took less than 5 minutes. The lady at the reception asked the...

The Sofitell has some of the best staff in the entire world. They are attentive and focused on the customer as much as any other hotel in the world. It compares equally with the Four Seasons and Ritz-Carlton. The rooms are awesome, and the location of the property is perfect for sightseeing.

Wow...where do I begin. The most wonderful service, great gourmet breakfasts, beautiful flower arrangements and spotless. The staff were delightful, each and every one of them. Only 2 block walk to The White House. Perfection !

We have stayed at enough Sofitel Hotels that they are starting to run together. So, I guess that means they are very consistent. Like others, the Washington DC hotel has very friendly service, the junior suite we usually stay in was pretty much like all the others, which after time becomes rather bland. It is great to have the separate...

The hotel is smaller than most brand name hotels and the staff quickly gets to know you and provide whatever services you need. It is located in an ideal area, 3 blocks from the White House. It is easy to walk to restaurants and some attractions. The rooms are spacious with excellent bedding and bathroom. The restaurant and bar/lounge area...

We chose the Sofitel as the place to stay for our family trip to Washington DC based on it's location and my previous positive experiences with Accor group hotels. We recieved the best service of our stay there whilst checking in, with the staff that assisted us being warm, friendly and helpful. However for the rest of our stay, we...

Thank you for your loyalty to Accor hotels and for taking the time to provide your feedback. Given our focus on leisure guests and traveling families, I am disappointed to learn that you were less than satisfied with your experience with us. We have several room arrangements to accommodate families, and have coffee/tea makers as well as mini fridges available...

Our first time in Washington DC, we made sure to find a good hotel. I found this one on a discount and wanted to try it out. The location is awesome, we could walk everywhere! The staff were nice and told us what to visit!

The Sofitel was the perfect place to stay for mine & my boyfriend's weekend trip to DC. The location could not have been better. We planned to make all the touristy stops so we wanted to stay in the heart of downtown. The hotel was only a few minutes walk to the White House and about a 25 min walk...

Everything as promised: close to the White House and to the president's church (that's what is all the fuzz is about on Sunday mornings). Nice rooms, beautiful bathrooms, terrific bar, menu and staff, lovely breakfast, although not cheap....but really good. Not the most trendiest place in town, but comfortable, stylish and relaxed. The only 'less positive' thing was the wait...

Just got back from a lovely visit to Washington, DC. I was so glad we chose the Sofitel. The facility itself is lovely, but it was the staff that makes this hotel such a wonderful place to stay. The service was outstanding on every level, noticably so. Our room was very comfortable and quiet. I would have liked fluffier towels,...
