High End Hotel, Moderate Price & Excellent Staff

Posted 18-Jan-2017
Walking distance to all things White House ... And several high end restaurants. If there on Sunday Morning you must go to Georgia Brown's Brunch

Close to the white house

Excellent hotel, well situated. Caring staff. Free breakfast option for children (had I known that, we would have had breakfast there every day)

Nice being close to the white house

Posted 17-Jan-2017
The lobby is very small which I didn't expect for a 5 star hotel. The entrance door is not automatic and was very heavy and difficult every time we wanted to get in or out as most of the time watchmen were not available at the entrance.

DC Business

Posted 16-Jan-2017
Pros: We liked the location, directly in between the convention center for work and all the major DC attractions for play.
Excellent location and fantastic staff. The room was very nice and clean, but you cannot say enough about the staff and services.

Great hotel close to the White House

Posted 16-Jan-2017
We spent MLK weekend here and had a fabulous time. The location is great, right near the White House and the Mall so very walkable. The beds are quite comfortable and the rooms are clean and spacious. Looking forward to coming back!

Great hotel, great location

Posted 31-Dec-2016
Pros: Room layout was about the best I have seen.
Location: White House, Smithsonian, Capitol and monuments are all within walking distance. Great restaurants in the surrounding several blocks and metro.
Up to the standard expected of Sofitel and then some. The hotel is perfectly located just a few blocks from the White House, the Mall, Metro and great restaurants. The hotel is in an older building but everything is fresh and well kept. The bathrooms are lovely, large marble facilities with a soaking tub and separate shower. The room itself was long which provided us with large closet space and drawers. Very large flat screen TV which we didn't watch so I'm not sure about the access to film etc. there was a large desk, well equipped with outlets, USB outlet at the bed, wine cooler and a box of snacks. Bottled water provided every evening. The staff could not be friendlier or more helpful. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely return here when we are in DC.

Nice location, nice property, pleasant stay

Posted 24-Dec-2016
The experience here was good plus. Staff was friendly enough but didn't pay that extra bit of attention to your stay as expected. But enjoyed the facility, the room and the location.

the bathroom was filthy

Posted 20-Dec-2016
Staff is rude. No manager on site to talk with. Honestly stay away from this hotel. Other great hotels in this area.
