Excellent location for sightseeing

Posted 3-Apr-2014
The hotel is located behind the white house, it takes a couple on minutes to walk to it. Other sights including the mall were around 10 minutes walk away. There are places to eat nearby and the area felt safe to walk around at night. The beds were really comfortable and the room was a good size and very clean.

Amazing Staff to go along with its European Decor

Posted 1-Apr-2014
Sofitel made our Washington stay just Perfect. Not only was it a classic European Luxury Hotel but it also had staff members who were so refined, knowledgeable, welcoming and helpful from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. The day I stayed in because of the flu, they personally delivered complimentary tea with lemon and honey to make me feel better. What else could you possibly ask for? Highly Recommended.

Great hotel, very nice courteous staff; willreturn

This hotel is North of the Whitehouse within walking distance and very close to a metro station. The hotel itself was very clean and classy. We slept well every night on a very comfortable bed and hardly heard any noise. The staff was very friendly especially the door men. It was my wife's birthday and so I wanted to stay in nice place and this was really great. The restaurant in the hotel was to pricey for us to want to try and there are so many good restaurants in DC we did not miss it. Also, there is a fridge in the room but it is the hotel minibar. I would rather just have a real fridge. We moved some items out to store some water and that trips a sensor which adds a charge to the bill. They confirmed the charge with us on check-out and we said we did not use anything from the bar and they promptly removed the charge. So you DEFINITELY should review your bill in such hotels. But we loved this place and would recommend and return.

Wonderful in every way

Pros: The staff was phenomenal.
Cons: The food was a bit expensive.
Location: Washington, D.C.
Everything was great. The staff could not have been nicer and the rooms were very clean and orderly. Food was a bit expensive but really good. We would defiantly stay here again. The White House was just around the corner as well as the subway stop McPherson square. Very pleased.

5 min away White House's northern backyard!

Great location, great staff, nice rooms, short but overwhelmingly pleasant stay. We actually walked from Union station the morning we arrived - took us 45 min to the hotel. We did make a quick stop at a local brewery.

excellent location, just around the White House

Posted 21-Mar-2014
Pros: location, an excellent restaurant and fair price.
Location: It is in the heart of DC. It is perfect for work meetings with the US gevernment.
Hotel installations are excellent. At the begging it was a bit counfusing to be greeted in french, but then I got used to it and I liked it. It gives a touch of sofistication.

Great hotel right in downtown Washington DC

Posted 12-Mar-2014
I got to the hotel pretty late after a _very_ long day of travelling to get there, so I was a mess. The staff was super friendly and got me to my room without delay. The bed was comfortable. The room was in great shape, and the bathroom was huge! And the best part was that the bar was still open :)
