The hotel is very close to the subway and the White House - we actually walked everywhere. The room is adequate, and you could only occasionally hear your neighbors. Service was extraordinary - they know who you are and are anxious to help in any way, with a real friendliness you usually only find in foreign countries. It is a...

It was our 25th anniversary, and we stayed one weekend night. The service is attentive and friendly. The hotel location is ideal, only a block away from the White House, and near all the main D.C. attractions. We were given an upgrade, and the room was very nice, facing the street. The lobby level restaurant is very nice, especially its...

We chose the Sofitel based on its location (a 2 min walk from the White House) and from the other glowing reviews on TripAdvisor, and were so glad we did! The staff, hotel and room were all exceptional and we had such a lovely stay. The weather was terrible when we were there, so the complimentary umbrellas were a god...

We enjoyed our stay at the Sofitel. As others have said, the location is excellent. 1 block from a Metro stop, and a short walk to the White House and the Washington Monument. The room was a bit small but adequately sized for what we needed. It would have been nice to have (1) a second comfortable chair (which is...

Brilliant location in the centre of this city and within walking distance or a short cab ride away from everything.

We did get a 4 nights for 3 deal by...

We just returned from a six-night stay at the Sofitel Lafayette Square. Great experience. Considering the level of luxury, service and location, the rooms were very reasonably priced.
