My husband and I just got back from a 3 night long weekend in Washington's Sofitel Hotel. The location is fantastic for those who intend to walk all over but one block from the Metro for those aiming to take public transit. The room we had was a suite with a king bed. Very comfotable with down filled duvet. Employees... More

My husband and I stayed at the Sofitel for 3 nights. We reserved a suite, and both of us felt the room was nicely spacious and provided plenty of amenities.

The Sofitel is a good value. The rooms are large for a city hotel, the Internet access works well, the in-room desk is a good size, lighting is strong enough in the rooms so it’s easy to work, and the bathrooms are large.
