My husband and I stayed at the Sofitel for 4 nights in November 2013.
Location: Great proximity to the White House and “The Mall” with all the museums. The only issue is the lack of good bars and eating spots near the hotel. There are a few steak houses close by, but I felt like we were in the business district at night over the weekend, since not much seemed to be open around us and was very quiet on the weekend. We went to Georgetown one night and felt that, that had more dining options and a more night-time vibe.
Room: Room was a good size and the bathroom was spacious. No complaints. Our view was of a brick wall, but we were not in the room too much so that did not bother us.
Dining: we ate at the bar a couple of nights and the service was slow. Food was good with a nice selection, shame it took a while to place orders for drinks and food.
As for the restaurant we only ate Breakfast there twice and both times the food and service were very good. The bread basket and fruit were fantastic.
Overall the hotel is in a good location and the service throughout the hotel was friendly and consistent.More
