Historical Traveler Reviews Sofitel Washington DC
Great value and great location.
I just got back from a weekend stay at the Sofitel and I definitely feel like I got my money's worth. I booked through their website for $149/night for a Fri and Sat night stay. The bed was very comfortable and the sheets were soft and smooth. The bathroom has a nice shower and separate tub (although the tub was a bit shallow). The concierge was foreign so I don't know if she understood that I wanted information about getting to Annapolis but she was very nice and eager to help, and she did get me the directions although I wanted to know about other transportation options. The downtown location is very convenient and within easy walking distance to attractions.
Our stay at the Sofitel Lafayette Square was a weekend of excellent service and an experience in superb accomadations. Le Bar is everything a lounge should be!!
The food was magnific'........
Great Downtown Value
Very nice hotel! My wife and I stayed only one night (8 October 2004), but had a great experience. The staff, across the board, are very courteous and helpful. The room was a bit small, but very comfortable. The bed was one of the most comfortable we've ever slept in. The blanket was very warm, but we just turned the air conditioning to a colder setting and snuggled in. Had breakfast in Cafe 15 in the hotel. While expensive, the price included fresh squeezed OJ and coffee or tea. The eggs benedict were lucious! The only drawback was that the valet parking is steep ($26 + tax) and it took a while to get our car since the parking facility is several blocks away. We would definitely stay here again!
A well run hotel
All the staff that we dealt with at this hotel were very courteous and helpful. Room was clean and nicely decorated. All this at a very reasonable weekend rate. This was the best hotel in DC that we stayed in for the price. We intend to stay at the Sofitel on our next visit to DC. The only negative was the $26 they charge for parking.
One of the best!
We stayed at the Sofitel for three nights at the end of May, and it turned out to be a fantastic decision. It's only a short walk to all the major Washington tourist destinations; a few blocks from the White House, the Monuments, and The Mall. Everything about the hotel was spot on; excellent rooms, very comfortable beds, modern bathrooms, and very helpful staff. Would highly recommend this hotel as an excellent place to stay in Washington DC.
Love the Sofitel Lafayette-Top Notch Staff
Beautifully decorated and comfortable rooms even though ours was on the small side, with a large and luxurious bathroom. The entire staff was professional, warm and courteous especially the concierge staff. Every one I came in contact with was a pleasure to deal with. Outstanding breakfast in the restaurant and a lovely bar for afternoon cocktails. How refreshing to stay in a hotel where service is the number one priority.
Very pleased with my stay. Really nice staff. Would recommend. Very impressive rooms.
Very good upscale hotel
I was there with my girlfriend for 4 days at the end of March. The location is great as it's very close to the White House, the staff was helpful and the room and bathroom were modern, very well decorated and well kept. They also have a good restaurant and a nice bar. The only inconvenience I found was that you couldn't open the windows in the rooms, so either you like A/C or you must get by with less air...
Sofitel is Tres Bien!
Upscale hotel in downtown DC. Walking distance to White House and The Mall. Friendly and efficient staff. Small, but well appointed rooms with quality down duvets and linens. Very large marble bath with seperate walk in shower and tub. Lovely restaurant. Highly recommend this hotel. Check for rate specials.
Service and accommodations
All expectations for service and accommodations were exceeded. Problems or issues (none encountered) were avoided or immediately handled. Crew were helpful from door entry personnel to housekeeping services.
Housekeeping was especially prompt in room needs and most approachable when guests had requests.

... rings - and whole baby squids which Sherrie wasn't too enamoured with! After this, came the main course which was a shared platter of spaghetti and 6 meatballs the size of your fist. It all tasted amazing and like the calamari, we couldn't finish it. We toasted our final full day in America (see the quote above) before heading back to the hotel for the less fun task of packing for tomorrow. That's all for today, over and ...
We got back in the car this morning and went off to visit Arlington cemetery and to see the changing of the guard. The cemetery is massive and all set in beautiful gardens and lawns. We walked up the hill to the Tomb of the unknown soldier to see the changing of the guard ceremony which occurs every hour on the hour. An officer came out and announced the ceremony and then later on they had several groups of children bring out ...
Back home where we booked almost the last of our trip to Vancouver, we have made it to Seattle but we just can't get over the border yet, we know how we want to go but we keep getting thrown out of the web site, we will just keep trying. We booked a tour from San Francisco to The Grand Canyon, Death Valley and Las Vegas for 4 days after Christmas which we are looking forward to.

... the big problem, I just couldn't get comfy no matter what contorted position I tried. Luckily when you are either sitting or just wandering through the train all day, not much energy was being exerted. The big plus was seeing the changing landscape as we toddled along, and at times toddling was the best we could do. Certain stages were precarious, especially through the Rocky Mountains. On a large section just past Aspen in Colorado we could only move at ten miles an ...
... properly because it looks so amazing! We then went to the Iwo Jima memorial - we had seen it the night before on the night tour but it was good to see it during the day too. A very moving memorial. Then it was on to Arlington - Oh My Goodness is this cemetery huge!! You really have no idea until you see it for yourself. We jumped off the bus and onto a trolley - you could walk it but seriously ...
