Overview

This hotel is extremely close to the White House and the National Mall
There is no pool or spa facility on-site

Sitting next to Lafayette Square in downtown D.C.  just minutes from the White House and the National Mall  the Sofitel Washington DC Lafayette Square is an excellent choice for travelers looking to take full advantage of the city's sights. But this property also caters to the luxury set with its services and facilities, including its fitness center and complimentary Wi-Fi access. Accommodations come equipped with contemporary furnishings and high-end touches like marble bathrooms and glass-enclosed showers, not to mention HDTVs, stocked minibars and sumptuous linens. Lodgers were equally complimentary of the Opalie Bar & Brasserie for its gourmet French fare and attentive wait staff. Though some recent guests bemoan Sofitel's high price tags, most claim that the hotel gave them the best night's sleep they'd had in ages. (What's more, members of the Le Club Accorhotels loyalty program can earn points towards a free night's stay.)

READ MORE 

This stately boutique, French-owned hotel takes its cue from the nearby White House, with its eye-catching, French-accented, American heritage decor. A meticulously detail-oriented staff, chic (albeit somewhat petite) guest rooms, and the ICI Urban Bistro beloved for its creative French dishes are just some of the reasons guests keep coming back.
