I enjoyed my stay.

Great location. Few minutes walk to the white house. The room has the biggest TV 60" + screen I have ever seen in a hotel. The staff are adorable and very helpful.

Comfortable hotel for business with some caveats

Posted 14-Apr-2015
Pros: Reasonably clean and comfortable, close to where we needed to be
My husband and I recently stayed at the Sofitel -- I was traveling for work and he was there working remotely. The room was nice and clean, but the service felt a little lacking for this level of hotel -- we only had one towel in the room until we asked for more, the room was clean but not made spotless, there was no refrigerator, items taken from the mini bar were never replenished, the internet was extremely limited, and the gym was nice but had broken equipment. Good enough but not impeccable.

So late / slow.

Posted 13-Apr-2015
Pro: The room was clean and comfortable. Very close to White House. Con: hotel staff is not good. when I arrived at 4:00pm, the room was not ready, and he said would be ready soon. But we waited more than 1 hour. Should give us more accurate information. Also, we had to wait breakfast for 20 minutes at the restaurant. Other customers also claimed...

Great location for all the sights!

Posted 13-Apr-2015
Pros: Everything. The room was comfortable and luxurious, and the room service was great (just what I needed!)
Location: It was round the corner from the White House - close to the Mall, restaurants and all sorts. FANTASTIC location.
I was visiting DC for the Cherry Blossom Festival so wanted something close to all the action and comfortable. This hotel more than exceeded my expectations - it was comfortable, a great location, with fantastic staff and a great atmosphere. I felt spoiled with the room service menu, and the facilities were excellent. A great experience.

Nice hotel

Pros: Location, beds, quiet.
Cons: Breakfast, staff service.

Great location, comfy beds and quiet rooms. Very expensive breakfast and poor quality but there are places nearby to get breakfast. Expensive hotel for what it is.

Good potential but falls short...

Posted 12-Apr-2015
Pros: good location a couple blocks away from the white house. decent walk to all of the sites and activities.
Cons: service level and attention to detail... again, had just as good service and facilities at the Hampton Inn, which isn't terribly bad...
Location: couple of blocks away from the white house. Founding Farmers restaurant is a must - about a 10-15 min walk from the hotel...
We get there a little early (an hr before checkin) and they tell us that they do not yet have a room ready for us. That's ok, we understand so we come back at 1/4 hr past the checkin time, they type away and find that our room MAY be ready and they need to call up to make sure that it passed the quality check. They say "oh..".. and say that the room is not ready and that they have another room that they need to check and to wait off to the side - meanwhile, a few others check in next to me.. odd.. and disappointing... The next day, we come back from a day of sight seeing and wanted to freshen up before dinner (around 4pm). Room was made up and looks good.... except... no towels... call down and had some sent up... The next day, we do the same, come back from a day of sight seeing and wanted to freshen up before dinner (again, around 4pm), little ones decide to take a shower and.... hair brush missing... not anything special of a hair brush.. bit nevertheless... missing.. For the premium type of place this is, was a bit disappointed... had a better experience when staying at the mandarin....

Location:15 steps away from the White House!

Posted 8-Apr-2015
Pros: The general experience with the staff, the bar and breakfast menus.
Cons: The ventilation was loud in our room, which was not always pleasant. Getting seated and served at breakfast was a little long.
Location: Close to Lafayette Square, the White House, H street, Dupont Circle, National Mall and Smithsonian, Reagan Airport and all the memorials.
We stayed at the Sofitel over the Easter weekend, as a romantic getaway... We were extremely pleased with everything, in particular the comfort of the room and the very good service, not to mention the excellent location. The staff mastered the very delicate balance between professsionalism and friendliness, which made our stay very pleasant. Also, even if we did not travel with children, we noticed that the staff was really good to them. The only negative features were a ventilation which was a little loud and a breakfast service that was long . If we were to go back to Washington DC, we would absolutely consider staying again at the Sofitel!

Tæt på metro Mcpherson og White House.

Posted 6-Apr-2015
Pros: Venligt personale, høj standard og god beliggenhed.
Dejligt hotel tæt på metro og White House. Gå afstand til mange oplevelser og spisesteder. Gode transportmuligheder med bus og metro.
