Wonderful hotel with great service and just two blocks from the White House. Convenient to the National Mall and all attractions.

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.

In miles above the earth's surface at least. After a very early start from our overnight stay at the Premier Inn we leave the car at Meet & Greet and join what seems to be the entire population of the North West of England in Terminal 3 Manchester Airport. Of course it turns out that this is Bank Holiday/ half term so everyone is on the move. …

... different groups and each group is in charge of a different aspect. Like the Education Committee might want more time for learning or the nutrition committee might want more time for lunch. Collectively you all have to come together to compromise on a plan that will work. Once you do that, you send your plan over to the Congress, which is a different group of students. They have to like the bill you passed but if they don't they ...
... and had arms spreading in all directions. We finally decided to find a way out, since nothing was open. You're right, nothing was open, including doors out. We headed down one arm, only to find the door out was covered in paper. We had to trace our way back to the main area and find another door. Then we noticed a few people coming from one direction and they were carrying take out food. Aha, they must have come from a place nearby, which would probably have coffee. By the ...
