After spending 2 nights in Sofitel LA, we spent 3 nights here, and it was just as great. Hotel is superbly located, near most of DC atractions (White house, Smithsonian, monuments, etc.). Rooms are big and nicely designed, and bed was very comfortable. Staff is great, and at the reception desk, Danny made us feel really welcomed and at home....

We stayed at the Sofitel in Washington for 5 nights from 1st to 6th June. The room was large, clean and comfortable with lovely bathroom toiletries and we got complementary bottles of water every day! The staff were helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The concierge helped us confirm a day trip booking we had planned in...

My wife and I spent an anniversary here on 22/23 June 2013 and enjoyed the ambiance, which reminded us of the fine hotels we visited in Paris. Staff is friendly but not obsequious. The 12th-floor room had a limited view but it reminded me of the Bauer hotel in Venice in layout and comfort. WiFi supposedly was comped but we...

Very central hotel close to the White House and other places of interest, the food was excellent and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. I was part of a larger business group and all of our needs were catered for.

I stayed one night at the Sofitel in Washington and I really enjoyed this hotel. The rooms are very large, clean and well designed. The service is friendly and top notch. This was by far the best hotel during my business trip to the US.

The Sofitel is an interesting, expensive, hotel that is a bit of a disappointment. I found it difficult to rate but then decided if they want to be cheap I will rate it accordingly. Without the cheap touches it is a 4 to 5 star hotel. I am an A Club silver member which gets me some discounts on line...

First and foremost, thank you for your loyalty to Accor and to Sofitel. We appreciate you choosing us.

I arrived at 9:30 am on a Sunday and hoped to leave my bag until I could check in later. The gentleman behind the desk offered to look for a room, and one was available. So I was able to get into my room, a welcome relief after arising at 3 am for my flight. Everything about the experience was...

Friendly service. But why they try to greet people in French? Room cozy aand clean, very comfortable bed. But dark, next time have a head lamp when trying to find your clothes from the cabinet.
