We stayed at the Sofitel in Washington DC during the inauguration. Our deluxe king room was somewhat small with one sink in bathroom and separate shower and tub. The king bed was very comfortable and we enjoyed the large screen TV. No problem with any of the very nice staff as they worked to make our stay enjoyable. Had an...

Stayed in a corner suite to celebrate my wife's birthday; our room was very spacious, update, quiet and comfortable. Blocks away from the White House, Warner Theater and many other great attractions. Breakfast can be pricey so keep in mind that Starbucks is literally 1 block away !

I came into Washington, D.C. for a quick overnight, arriving at 11:15pm and learning the next day at 4pm. It was my one night away from my twin baby boys, and I was looking forward to 7 hours of peace and quiet. Henry in Guest Services, along with the rest of the night team, ensured that my stay was perfect....

Stayed at the Sofitel for one night on business travel. It is in the center of downtown DC near the White House and some federal buildings. Lots of restaurants and nightlife options to choose from within walking distance. The rooms are small, but comfortable with modern conveniences and the service is exemplary! The guy at the front desk knew my...

Great location, so close to all the tourist spots. Very comfortable bedding and an excellent breakfast layout every morning. Room was a bit small but i figure this must be consistent with all places in a similar location.

Two blocks from the White House, luxurious accommodations and friendly, accommodating staff. A great buy! Less than $185 a night including tax is a bargain for this wonderful hotel. The French influence absolutely shines through. Absolutely worth a visit.

I booked this hotel primarily for the location. It is in walking distance or an easy metro ride of most anything you want to do in the DC area. We stayed four nights in September. I booked a luxury room with a king size bed, but the room seemed a little small. The staff was very nice, and always responded...

The service and subtle extras that were provided by the staff in this hotel was amazing. I will stay at this hotel every time I am in Washington DC from now on. The extra touches with water delivered to the room, bread baskets included in room service (croissants etc) to the extensive nibbles in the bar made our stay feel...

While the staff was lovely, the room and facility really let us down. For 450/night, one expects better than this: a 10" deep bathtub, broken reading light next to bed, dried scum on the wall next to bed, and, most surprising and the real deal-killer: no hot water for two mornings in a row. Complaints brought attentive, concerned looks and...

I have never given a hotel an excellent rating and we have stayed at many luxury hotels. But this stay was above and beyond our expectations because every staff member went above and beyond for us. We needed a roll away bed for our 5 year old. It was delivered immediately and the gentleman also filled our ice bucket and...
