My husband and I stayed at the Sofitel Washington from June 23-27. The hotel is perfectly situated in the heart of DC, within easy walking distance to all of the main attractions in Washington. We were assigned a room on the 12th floor that overlooked an interior courtyard. There was no view outside of our windows, other than a brick...

The location is great sitting at the northeast corner of all the attractions and by many quality restaurants. The staff was very helpful and extremely friendly. We didn't eat at the hotel restaurant but the bar was very nice and the drinks were good.

We stayed over the 4th of July holiday. You can't beat the location for its proximity to sightseeing. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful from the moment you arrive. High speed internet is not free, but they do have complimentary regular speed internet, and it was fine for us. Free coffee and croissants in the morning, too, which was...

What a lovely stay! Upon check-in, we were upgraded to the Presidential Suite as the hotel was fully booked. Wow!!! Such a gorgeous room. The staff was professional, courteous, and went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. Would definitely recommend this property due to the top-notch service, attention to detail, dining, comfortable beds, and the location.

Check in was enhanced by Danny who was welcoming and asked us to wait in the bar with complimentary drinks so he could put finishing touches on an upgraded corner room. He could not have been more accommodating. The room was polished, clean, offered Lavin products, great views from many windows, bathrobes, safe, lots of lights, separate shower and tub,...

Two options - free (for web browsing, email and VPN) and premium (for all of the above plus streaming HD movies). Selected free. It is SO SLOW, SO THROTTLED that it is insufficient for web...

We stayed 3 nights in Washington DC. We loved the hotel. The location is extremely close to the White House and other attractions. Our room was quite large. The only minor issues being the heating/air conditioning control - (we could not get it cool enough to sleep) and some of the bar prices - otherwise perfect. The stand we very...

Lovely hotel. Great service. Found the room and the bed very comfortable and clean. Great bathroom (though tub was small). Good, central location, near a couple metro stops. Very much enjoyed the restaurant. Tried almost everything on the De-Light menu (three course dinner under 500 calories; for breakfast, a lovely yogurt-berry parfait) and absolutely loved it. Would stay again just...
