Sofitel Washington DC is perfectly located in midtown, just round the corner from a metro station with a direct and cheap link to Dulles IAD airport. Check in was quick and easy but the reception staff initially failed to acknowledge our status perks or even our response to their own late check out offer. But after check in, the hotel acknowledged the request and were very accommodating. This is a lovely hotel, traditional decor, friendly staff, and great clean room. Free water every day. Lots of charging points. Breakfast rate includes a large plate, coffee and juice only, but the portions are big, tasty and very attentive service. And ends at midday at weekends, good after late night drinking in the local bars. Luggage storage available on check out and chilled fruit water at reception in the evenings. I would definitely stay here again on a DC visit.

Our room on the 11th Floor was spacious, bright and very quiet. The daily housekeeping was meticulous. The bath towels were a generous size and quality. The elevators were predictably fast.

My wife and I stayed at the Sofitel hotel for a honeymoon getaway. We were very pleased with the staff, cleanliness, and hospitality. The room had a beautiful view and it was clean. The banquet room was also nice and we enjoyed having drinks and dessert there. This hotel is also walking distance to many places, so that was a plus too. We have discussed how we would like to return for an anniversary getaway in the future! We highly recommend this place.

A very pleasant stay for the holidays as if we were in Paris. Courteous service and nice amenities. And, we had a good time at Opaline where it can be fine-dining or casual contemporary. It would be my choice of hotel when I would be in DC again.
