I booked this hotel primarily for the location. It is in walking distance or an easy metro ride of most anything you want to do in the DC area. We stayed four nights in September. I booked a luxury room with a king size bed, but the room seemed a little small. The staff was very nice, and always responded...

The service and subtle extras that were provided by the staff in this hotel was amazing. I will stay at this hotel every time I am in Washington DC from now on. The extra touches with water delivered to the room, bread baskets included in room service (croissants etc) to the extensive nibbles in the bar made our stay feel...

While the staff was lovely, the room and facility really let us down. For 450/night, one expects better than this: a 10" deep bathtub, broken reading light next to bed, dried scum on the wall next to bed, and, most surprising and the real deal-killer: no hot water for two mornings in a row. Complaints brought attentive, concerned looks and...

I have never given a hotel an excellent rating and we have stayed at many luxury hotels. But this stay was above and beyond our expectations because every staff member went above and beyond for us. We needed a roll away bed for our 5 year old. It was delivered immediately and the gentleman also filled our ice bucket and...

This was the final few days of a 3 week trip to USA for our family of 4. From the minute we arrived everything was easy. The staff were welcoming and friendly. Nothing was too much for them. As Accor members we had a few extra touches which makes you feel special. Our rooms were spacious and well appointed. Beds...

I stayed at the Sofitel for three weeks for work in Dec. 2016. First let me say, I would give this hotel five stars for the staff service and location.

We stayed here in January and loved the hotel at the very first moment. Very nice and helpful staff. Quick check in, great large rooms with large beds, lots of closet space. The bar is also very nice with great small bites like wagyu sliders and pork buns.
