Great location and excellent quality

Posted Jul 10, 2014
Pros: The service and the location
Cons: Host in the "Ici" dining room at breakfast
Location: All Washington sights
Our recent stay was very comfortable, with excellent service and lovely rooms. We were greeted by name by all staff, and found the atmosphere relaxed and tasteful. The concierge was very helpful and knowledgeable, as were the staff on the desk, and the housekeepers. The only minor negative was that there didn't seem to be a host in the dining room at breakfast each day. We were there 6 days, and were never seated reasonably quickly. Perhaps this was because it was the 4th of July weekend and staffing in the dining room was not as it normally should be.

Good Location

Posted Jul 9, 2014
Walking distance to the White House, just around the corner. The hotel breakfast is expensive, there are two McDonald's near by, open from 5am. There is a Bose Wave radio in the room, with a iPod docking (the old 30-pin connector, not the Ligtening for iPhone 5/5s). Staff are friendly, room has quality feel as it should be for a Sofitel. Don't expect to have a good window view, there isn't any thing to see from the windows.

What? No top bedsheet?

Posted Jul 8, 2014
Pros: Convenient location.
Cons: Provide bedsheet!
Location: Convenient location.
The hotel does NOT provide top sheet in between the comforter and the bed, which makes sleeping very uncomfotable especially during summer even with the air conditioning on. Seeping directly under the duvet makes sleeping very uncomfortable and hot.

Surely overpriced. Can get same hotel in the area.

Posted Jul 7, 2014
Pros: Nothing.
Cons: Managemet. Menu. Room service.
Easy to get similar hotel in the DC area for half what you would in Sofitel. Many little bad things.

Great Hotel.

Posted Jul 5, 2014
Pros: Location.
Location: Close to White House especially back of White House. Old Ebbitt Grill across street is oldest restaurant in D.C. Smaller parks near by.
Hotel has a great and very popular restaurant and lounge. Good for breakfast in the morning and relaxing end of day. The room was quiet and clean with current d├ęcor and features.
