“Consistent In Every Way.”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

Spent one night here this past weekend while attending a wedding. The second time we've stayed at this Sofitel since January 2014. We had a corner room. The staff could not be nicer and more friendly, from the front door to the front desk. Housekeeping is quick and efficient to deliver any requests. Rooms are spotless, showing little to no wear and tear. The bathrooms are large and feature separate showers and tubs. Comfy beds, quiet and serene setting. I've stayed at many DC hotels and this is by far one of the very best.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room. They tend to be a bit larger, as overall room sizes here are small.

This is a good hotel, in an excellent location with very helpful and friendly staff. I particularly liked the bar, which has a great atmosphere, good view to the street and good food and service. Every morning tea and coffee is available in the bar and it is a pleasant way to start the day. The rooms are comfortable and well appointed. Room service was excellent. The gym is large and well equipped and open 24 hours. I really enjoyed my stay.

There is no spa, although they do offer in room massages.

Great location around the corner for the White House, and within a very few minutes walking distance from all main sights, including all the museums, Lincoln memorial, Capitol Hill and other memorials. Service was excellent. Once our beers were delayed as they had a technical problem with that draught, and they just served us a very nice fries starter unsolicited. Overall excellent food for all meals.

Our second stay in this wonderful hotel. Great location, great staff and bed to die for! Only a few minutes from the White House and a great base for seeing the rest of DC. Many thanks for a pleasant stay . Hope to be back soon!

We chose the Sofitel Hotel for our week long visit to Washington and were pleasantly surprised by the building/interior immediately on arrival. The staff throughout our stay were absolutely amazing, all very polite and always smiling. Our room wasn't ready when we arrived, so we left the luggage in safe keeping and headed out to do some exploring. Unfortunately, when we got back it still wasn't ready, even though this was a couple of hours later. The receptionist offered us a suite at no extra cost to avoid any further inconvenience so we didn't get to see what our actual room would have been like. The alternative we ended up with was certainly very nice and spacious!

In terms of location, it was pretty ideal for us as there was no part of the city we wanted left unturned and with it being so central, it means all parts are within reach. There are also a couple of Metro stops quite close by, in case you fancy a more direct (less exhausting) route.

The hotel facilities were perfectly acceptable - the décor was charming, there was an ice machine (presumably on each floor) which meant we could have cold drinks in the room - useful since there's no space in the minibar for extra items. Be warned - the rumours on the reviews are all true regarding getting charged if you remove something from the minibar for longer than 7s (the bellboy was quick to inform us of this!). I'm not sure if you could get a complimentary newspaper as we weren't asked, though some rooms did have papers outside their doors on a morning. I tended to take a copy of one of the papers left near the lifts if we had time for a morning read.

The toiletries in the bathroom as great so you barely need to bring anything with you! And the hairdryer was far more powerful than the one I have at home, which was a refreshing change.

There's a restaurant opposite - Bobby Van's - which is definitely worth a visit. We only had one drink in the bar at the hotel during our stay, but could have quite happily had an aperitif every night as the ambience was lovely.

I hope you enjoy your stay if you too choose the Sofitel
