Excellent hotel with great food and atmosphere. Rooms well furnished and wifi throughout. Would, for sure, stay again on my next trip to DC. Hotel has a great exterior terrace for those warm evenings and days.

It was my first time staying in DC. After being sick all I wanted was a nice bed. It was a bit noisey since I stayed in a corner room with a the city view but the bed made up for the sirens going all night. Room service and morning breakfast in the bistro was exceptional. Wife loved it as...

At the price they charge per night, you would expect that you can hang more than one suit and one shirt in the wardrobe (honestly, it doesnt fit anything else, i hanged up my shirts in the towel rack of the bathroom). Avoid the expensive, mediocre breakfast and get something from one of the nearby places. The gym is ok...

Gorgeous property with impeccable service. The Sofitel is in a great location just north of the White House and close to a metro stop for easy access. Would definitely stay here again on a return visit!

Although I usually avoid spending on the generally overpriced hotel breakfasts, i did in this case eat here every morning which is testament to how tasty it was! Be prepared however to shell out about $30 if you have coffee and orange juice with...

A favorite hotel. Good location, walking distance to most things and close to Metro stations if you need to go further away. I like the quiet atmosphere of the hotel and the friendly staff. Nice bar where you can sit and work (and have small meetings). Decent gym.
