The Sofitel is in a fantastic DC location - literally a 2 minute walk to the White House and convenient for all major attractions and good metro stations.
We paid for an upgraded "Luxury" room but it was on the second floor and was very small - could management confirm if 220 is really a "Luxury" room or if we got auto-downgraded without knowing? If this was a "Luxury" room I'd be very surprised as it was nothing special; it was very small and the layout was a little annoying with the bathroom doors right next to the side of the bed. The bathroom is luxurious but the bath is absolutely tiny. Housekeeping never replenished the bathroom amenities - that needs some attention. Also, to not have a coffee maker in the room is completely unacceptable. They do offer free coffee in the hotel bar but it's not much to ask for an in-room machine, especially at this price point. As is usual for Sofitel hotels the bed was really comfortable with excellent pillows and linens. Free in-room WiFi worked well.
It rained heavily during our stay and we appreciated the complimentary umbrellas from the concierge. The bellman was very efficient and friendly but the front desk staff were hit and miss.
Overall, a nice hotel in a great location but we might try somewhere else next time as the room was a disappointment for the $$$.
