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,...

My husband and I stayed here for a half marathon that I ran in. The hotel's location was great - close to good restaurants and most importantly the start line of my race. Service was also very good. Our room was clean and they were able to accommodate my request for an early breakfast on the morning of my race....

The Sofitel could not be more centrally located, being just a few blocks away from the White House, and convenient to the Metro (McPherson Square). The door men are excellent and protect you from the rush of traffic - we used the Washington Flyer service from Dulles who provided a SUV at zero notice since we had significant luggage -...

I had no preconceived idea about what this Sofitel hotel would be like, I just wanted to get there after a long train journey and a very long queue at Union Station for a taxi. Wow, I was blown away by the customer service from everyone. The room was quiet and luxurious, breakfast was amazing and a great bar to...

We stayed for 2 nights, arriving on the first day about 9am to drop our bags off and being very pleasantly surprised (and happy!) that our room was ready. After a quick pit stop to shower and change shoes - we were off to the National Mall, only a short walk away. The hotel is so conviniently located, it was...

Fantastic stay in DC at a great hotel. The most comfortable bed you can imagine. The location is fantastic to explore DC and the staff can't do enough to help you achieve whatever you want to see or do.

This is a wonderful hotel in every respect: 1.the service is welcoming and attentive. We arrived a little confused about how to park/ enter the hotel. The valet somehow read the expression of confusion on my face as I sat in traffic near the hotel and immediately handled everything for me. From then on, all our needs were met in...

My wife and I were here for our 20th anniversary during the busy Easter holiday. DC was full of people, but this beautiful hotel was so quiet and relaxing, near everything without being in the middle of everything. All the staff were amazingly friendly and upbeat, it was a nice little onus to be greeted in French, but this place...

I took four years of French in high school, so I got a small thrill (I admit) when I was greeted with a Bon Jour as we walked into the foyer. BTW, the bell hops JUMPED to open the doors for us, so refreshing. Our bedroom was snug and comfortable. I can say I enjoyed it. I liked the location...
