Our party of 4 booked two rooms for a Saturday evening to explore the sights of DC and visit several places we like in the area. Front desk is very accommodating and friendly. The outdoor sidewalk seating area is fun to relax,have a drink and people watch. Front doormen are helpful, friendly and make you feel special, its a first class hotel. Our 4th floor king bed room was a little small but adequate,especially for the low rate we paid. It is located approximately 2 blocks from the White House.

Room Tip: We got a great weekend price using HOTWIRE

Thank you for sharing your experience with us. It seems you were able to take advantage of our central location, in the heart of downtown Washington D.C. I have to agree that the patios outside of ICI Bistro and Le Bar are excellent locations to enjoy the open air and people watching, not to mention a hand crafted cocktail! We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Truly,
Anna

Location is perfect - just around the corner from the White House. The staff greet you in French and many are indeed from France, which adds to the nice atmosphere. Not new but well kept, traditional, comfortable feel-good rooms and public areas. We were first allocated a room on a lower floor facing the backyard but managed to get a room on the 10th floor facing the street. Definitely worth the reasonable extra fee. Wonderful beds, Bose sound system, a very good flatscreen TV and lovely Lanvin toilet amenities. Very polite and good-humored staff. We enjoyed the outside bar, which not many hotels in DC have. - Oh and by the way: on the corner right across is Joe's Seafood and Prime Steak restaurant, and they have fresh stone crabs from Florida on the menu. My all time favorite! - For sure: The Sofitel is an excellent hotel choice and we warmly recommend it.

Room Tip: Choose a room high up and facing the street.

Sofitel Washington is a great hotel right downtown in Washington DC. It's far less expensive than the other top rated hotels, but the best bargain in DC. Easy walk to the White House and the Washington Monument and Smithsonian buildings. The concierge was helpful with dinner reservations or any questions we had.

Sofitel Washington is superbly located whether visiting Washington DC on business or pleasure.

I cannot remember the last time we stayed at a city centre hotel where the staff were so polished and approachable.

Our room was one of the executive suites and lived up to our expectations. Great beds, and really welcoming decor in a modern traditional manner if that makes sense!

We didn't eat in the hotel apart from breakfast which was good and most enjoyable. The hotel is well priced for the facilities offered and standards attained.

If and when we return to DC, I think we would be hard pushed to better the Sofitel for quality, service and price. If it fits your pocket, I think it will tick your boxes!
