This was our first experience staying at Sofitel. We absolutely loved it. From the interaction from the front door to the front desk! We ate at the restaurant and because of the special attention we received from the Gentleman that sat us to our special friend Toufik who made us feel so special, we returned the next day to have...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

We greatly enjoy Sofitel hotels, which are a luxurious blend of great properties and great people. We had dined at the excellent iCi Urban Bistro at the Sofitel at Lafayette Park in DC, but had not spent a night there. One of us had a one-night trip for a meeting/reception close by and chose to stay here. It was, as...

White House and National Mall are just down the way, with plenty of places to dine and explore nearby. Not too bad of a walk to the conference center (about 15 minutes). View for my room wasn't spectacular, but that's to be expected when booking through a 3rd party website.

I am staying here for a week for business. What a treat! Great location for sightseeing this weekend and for business next week. I've found the service to be great, but unobtrusive. My breakfasts have included world class baked goods, but I like my coffee stronger -- the kitchen is trying to make it better when told. This is now...

Great hotel, however the standard rooms are very small. Great atmosphere and dining area is extremely cozy. The entire staff was friendly. I had an issue with Valet parking which took over 35 minutes to retrieve my car. However they did compensate me.

Really enjoyed my stay here. The building and rooms are in a beautiful Art Nouveau style. Staff at all levels was accommodating, friendly, and professional. Breakfast and bar staff were particularly excellent. Absolutely will stay here again when in Washington, DC.

This hotel is in a good location and had a very comfortable bed, well appointed room and engaging staff. The only reason I did not rate a 5 is because my room service order was incorrect but otherwise - excellent !

What I really like about the sofitel chain is that the pillows are soft and the bed comfortable plus you can get a decent breakfast including a proper croissant and french bread and not the usual soft american bread! The hotel is very well situated and a short walk from the White House, the museums and memorials. I would definitely...

The French know a thing or two about luxury, and that knowledge is manifest in Sofitel Lafayette Square. I've stayed at this hotel about 3 or 4 times, and the staff always goes out of its way to make me feel valued and welcome. Definitely eat at the restaurant. The chef is from Bordeaux. The location is good - the...
