We stayed at the Sofitel Washington DC Lafayette Square for 3 nights this past weekend and absolutely loved it! We were in DC to catch an exhibit at the Smithsonian American Art Museum. This was our first time in the city and couldn't have chosen a better place to stay.

We had a luxury king room with a city view. The woman at the front desk was so nice (I believe her name was Stephanie), she allowed us check when we arrived mid-morning versus 3pm so we didn't have to carry our packs with us while we went site seeing. She also recommended we take room 326 as it was a corner room with a nice flow and she was absolutely right. The room was perfect - clean, modern - and had so much natural light. The bed was probably the most comfortable we've had at any hotel we've previously stayed in and all of the staff were very friendly and helpful. Housekeeping left everything spotless each day.

If there was one thing that the hotel could improve on - and this is certainly not a deal breaker - it would be that the complimentary wifi constantly drops out. But really, not the end of the world when everything else was so nice.

Room tip: Room 326 was great - corner/city view. Some traffic noise, but if you're from a big city this won't bother you. The room layout is great.

My friend and I were exploring downtown DC and wanted a drink, so we popped into le bar, which is inside The Sofitel Hotel. We met Angel, the Manager and he made us the best moscow mule and jamison on the rocks! He is an exceptional manager, the bar was spotless, and the atmosphere was very relaxing, yet inviting. Angel is one of the best in the business. If youre ever in DC, stop into The Sofitel for a drink!

I stay here once a year and they never let me down. You do have lots of good choices in Washington, but the Sofitel is excellent. It's proximity to good restaurants and amenities is very handy, and the recent refit has been fantastic. The service here is incredibly good, over the years I've had many out-of-the-ordinary requests and they've all been met perfectly. Getting a room with a view is a bit hit and miss, but otherwise highly recommended.

What a nice hotel this was. Located near the White House the Sofitel was outstanding. Rooms, decor, cleanliness, and service were fantastic. The fitness center met my needs and is open 24 hours. It is evident that the staff is held to very high standards and their professionalism is noted. Thanks for a memorable visit and I look forward to returning!

Our firm hosted a small global board meeting late October at the Sofitel. The hotel personnel (reservationist, catering and concierge) was 'over-the-top' in providing me with immediate and exceptional service (based on my RFP). The Sofitel is beautiful, charming and immaculate and a real treat for our global guests (most of whom had never been to DC). I would highly recommend the Sofitel for anyone's next (or first) visit to DC!!!
