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.

We start off with an amble around the Baltimore inner harbour to drink gluhwein at the German christmas market (are there any Germans left in Germany over Christmas?? They seem to be able to run markets on every continent all with the same wooden huts, freaky nutcracker statues and delicious hot spiced wine) and apparently the cold has chased away the "thugs" as the waterfront has been ...

We returned to the yellow loop which took us down to the shopping and riverside park area of Georgetown. While there we had a lovely lunch at a French patisserie and followed by a leisurely cruise along the Potomac River as far as the Ronald Reagan National Airport. We enjoyed our lunch so much we went back for a pastry and coffee for ...
So by writing this entry it kinda suggests we have made it to Washington safely. Our flight was long and boring, but got us to where we need to be. American immigration is a massive pain in the ass - not helped by Jeff's sudden change of signature on his immigration documents - but eventually Dudley stamped our passports and let us continue.

We had planned to use the Metro system to get to our hostel, but the trains were all off for some reason, so instead we jumped on a replacement shuttle bus over to the 'Metro Centre' station - sadly not the same as our Metro Centre, haha - accidently bashing into some well dressed businessmen in the process. Whoops. Once at our stop, ...
