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.

... an adrenaline type sport, traveling solo has a certain kind of appeal that almost resembles an addiction. The liberating feeling of being free upstages the loneliness and safety issues. The lure of braving the unknown overpowers any forms of fear that solo traveling presents. In many ways, it is the ultimate challenge for us, humans. In our daily lives, we are surrounded by people 99% of the time. Even at home, ...
... around the altar, ringing of small bells and buring of incense. Then the godmother begins to dress the baby but soon the priest comes again to cut a bit of the baby's hair which is then burned on a special plate. Close to the end the priests and Romanians sang the Romanian version of "Happy Birthday" to the baby as this is the beginning of his life as a child of God. All in all it is a beautiful ceremony even when one does ...

We got checked in with the luggage no problems of course the check in agent was surprised i didn't speak french, I told her it was most people from Quebec not Toronto said but you are from Canada two languages not all of us speak it I told her. But we found out we will have to pickup our bags in Washington to clear USA Customs. Then we cleared first passport clearance. Did some shopping at the perfume duty free. ...
... while the American Revolution was going on? That’s ballsy! The English didn’t give it up until about 4 years later! And the constitution was not formed until the end of the 1790’s. Also, hands up if you have ever heard of the Mexican War? Nope? Us neither! In the 1850’s the US waged war on Mexico, the war finally ending after they agreed to pay $15 million in damages in exchange for over half of Mexico’s land – Texas. Wow! They kept that ...
... the night, and after waiting in a Customer Service line for 30-minutes, I was finally given a hotel room and re-booked for an early a.m. flight for the next day. I was not charged for the changed flight or to take my suitcases to the hotel and re-check my two bags the next day (I had to leave the original sticker tags on the luggage handles to avoid the charge of re-checking the bags the next day/for the new flight).
