What can we say, this is a great center city hotel. If you want a luxury destination very close to the White House, and the action on the mall, this is a great choice. The metro station is a short block away, so you have easy access to everything DC has to offer.
There was a very slight problem for our check in, but that was immediately remedied, and the front desk person apologized, then upgraded us, a very pleasant surprise! Thank you Matthew.
The staff was unfailingly polite and efficient, the word "no", it seems , does not exist in the vocabulary at the Sofitel DC.
The food was wonderful, we used room service several times.
It's also fun that the hotel has a bit of a European flair, we were greeted with "bonjour" at the door several times, and several staff members are French. The menu at the restaurant ('Ici") reflects this, as well.
Wonderful amenities in the room, Hermes, the wife was delighted with those. Very comfy beds, nice towels, very quiet.
We'd go back in a heart beat, and will. Our first Sofitel visit will not be our last!
