Excellent Hotel

Posted Aug 19, 2014
Pros: The staff were very friendly.
Cons: I'd like to see a breakfast bar.
Location: Sofitel Hotel is right by the National Mall area making it ideal if you plan on going there. There is also a variety of fine dining restaurants.
The Sofitel Hotel has excellent staff that are willing to help you make the most of your stay. Whether it's information about restaurants in the area or what kind of transportation options you have to go to various places if you didn't have a vehicle.

Great location, super helpful staff!

Posted Aug 18, 2014
We had a great stay here! The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. We had a small issue with our room that was addressed immediately. They allowed us to store our items before check-in and after we checked out without problems or making it seem like it was a burden to them. I left something in my car and retrieving it was absolutely no issue. We were in a great location. We will most certainly go back in the future!

Nice hotel close to all historic monuments

Posted Aug 11, 2014
Pros: Friendly service and cleanliness
We only had one night reservation at the hotel. Anna, the hotel manager at Sofitel, helped us find another hotel at the last minute and walked with us to ensure we didn't run into any issues.

Great hotel near main attractions

Posted Aug 5, 2014
Pros: See above.
Cons: No criticism of the hotel or staff, but Washington is very hot and humid and a pool would be nice!
Location: Within walking distance of the White House, Smithsonian Museums, Metro station, variety of coffee shops and restaurants.
This was a really great hotel within walking distance of all the main Washington tourist attractions, the White House nearby. Within easy walking distance of the Metro too which made it very easy to get around to other attractions such as the zoo and baseball stadium. We had dinner in the dining room our first night and were glad there was a lobby bar for that last night cap on our return to the hotel on subsequent nights. We did use the gym a couple of mornings so did not have to feel totally self indulgent. All the hotel staff we encountered could not have been more helpful and welcoming.

Good hotel in downtown DC

Posted Jul 28, 2014
Pros: The bathrooms in the rooms are of a generous size and the shower is fantastic.
Cons: The rooms are a little small, but the bathroom is tremendous.
We enjoyed out stay at the Sofitel. The staff was incredibly courteous and could not do more to help us during our stay. The hotel is close to the White House and within walking distance of the Smithsonian museums and the US Capitol. There are also great restaurants all around the hotel.

Great location, terrible staff

Posted Jul 28, 2014
Pros: Location
Cons: Better staff.
Location: Near the White House, Cafe du parc (most tours leave from here)
The location is ideal for walking around. It is one street away from the White House. The only problem is the staff is not friendly or efficient.

Great bedding

Posted Jul 19, 2014
Cons: A front staff could have spoken slower, not like a robot.
Location: Very convenient to visit major tourist spots.
Although I was not happy about long waiting at check-in (in a not busy hour), after all I have good impression about the hotel because of clean and pleasant room with quality bedding, the most important element of hotel rooms for me. It is conveniently located to visit major tourist locations.
