D.C. Trip

Posted 23-Jul-2017
Wonderful hotel, staff was excellent friendly and was able to answer all my questions. Room was very clean but on the small side. Do not I repeat Do not order room service two diet cokes cost in excess of $25.00 only did this because the restaurant staff was unable to serve me a soda unless I sat for a meal and suggested I ask the front desk to send one to my room.

Nice hotel close to the White House.

Posted 14-Jul-2017
Comfortable and clean, this hotel offered all the amenities and offered a short walk to the main attractions. Very nice area. Lunch was tasty and the bar was nice too. Have stayed here before and will stay here again.

Sofitel D.C. - Good Location

Posted 12-Jul-2017
Pros: Great location and friendly staff.
Cons: The cost of breakfast was fairly expensive.
Location: The location of this hotel is its highlight!
The Sofitel Washington DC Lafayette Square is in a good location only a couple of blocks walk northeast of the White House. We walked to all of the museums and most of the monuments. The room slept our family of five comfortably. There were times when a second room with a second bathroom would have been helpful but it was not a real issue. The staff on concierge was very helpful. We went for early morning runs around the city and they provided small running maps with recommended routes of differing lengths. Upon return to the Hotel they provided towels and a bottle of water which was very nice. The concierge also provided us with recommended tours which we booked as well as umbrellas for our family of five on a couple of days when rain moved through the area. Breakfast at the hotel was delicious but rather expensive as were the drinks in the bar in the evenings. Overall I would recommend this hotel for its great location and friendly staff.

Excellent hotel at a great location

Posted 9-Jul-2017
Pros: Location, staff, & amenities were great.
Cons: On one day we did not have our washcloths replenished and another day the morning coffee had no cups available.
Location: 1 block away from McPherson Square Metro Station. 1 Block away from White House.
The hotel was clean and very comfortable with all the amenities and service you expect from a 5-star property. The staff was efficient and friendly. The location was perfect for touring the national mall or hopping onto the metro to explore other parts of the city. I highly recommend this hotel to other tourists.

Loved this Hotel

Posted 8-Jul-2017
Pros: This hotel was cozy and comfortable...it was within walking distance to most of the attractions...I would recommend this hotel to all...
Location: Close to everything including the Metro
Great hotel! Anna made our check-in experience pleasant and she was extremely friendly. All the staff was helpful. I spend a lot of time researching hotels before I decide on one and book it. This hotel was everything it promised to be. After a day of exploring the city it was nice to come back to our hotel and relax.

Nice hotel very close to White House

Posted 6-Jul-2017
Pros: Location, bigger room with a seating area, free bottles of water in room
Cons: Better located room, make the rooms brighter/better lighting, TV position, fix light switches.
Location: White House, the national mall
Very easy to get to the attractions. Also lots of restaurants and Starbucks close by. Staff was friendly. We were given an inner room which had no view and made the room very dark at all times. Also the room was on the other side of a service elevator, so it kept sounding like someone was moving furniture around. Security even came to our room on the first night to complain since the people below our room said that we were too loud. We told them it was the elevator they were hearing and not us! Location is definitely the best. Just try and make sure you don't get an inner room !
