We arrived at the Sofitel Washington after a frantic time in New York City and Sicily..
It was great to arrive to the slower, more relaxed pace of Washington DC.
We were greeted warmly by all the staff we passed on our way to check in.
Check in was easy and although our room wasn't ready (we were early), the hotel happily took our bags, gave us very useful tourist information and arranged tickets for our afternoons adventures.
We could easily walk to a central point for bus tours and The White House was about 4 bocks away.
We had a double double room which was a very generous size. After spending 2 weeks in Italy, it was great to have very comfortable beds.
My only suggestion would be that the beds be made with a top sheet in the warmer months, as it got a bit warm at night and the aircon didn't go low enough for us (18.5 degrees).
We dined in the restaurant for breakfast. The omelette was delicious.
The staff were very helpful and friendly. Everyone we dealt with introduced themselves and had plenty of useful advice.
Close to Macy's and a couple of really good restaurants. We dined across the road at Bobby Vans (because we didn't have the stamina to venture further on day 1) and what a find!
Thoroughly recommend staying at the Sofitel when you are in Washington, DC>
