Wonderful Location!

Jan 27th, 2020

I absolutely loved the location of this hotel. It was walking distance to all the main attractions - just steps to the White House and an easy walk to the Washington Monument and the the rest of the monuments on the Mall. The lobby of the hotel is smaller than expected, an underwhelming corridor that leads to the front desk, where they only had two counter tops. Even though it was small, check-in/check out was very efficient with great front desk personnel. The concierge helped to print some documents I needed and answered all the questions I had. There are three elevators, but like the lobby, each are very small. They did come very fast when called. However, when dealing with luggage you couldn't fit more than a 3 or 4 people at a time. The room was cozy, but the bathroom was spacious. I loved the tub -- had a couple of relaxing baths after a day of sightseeing in the cold and it was nice to put on the plush robe after my baths. The pillows and comforter was great, but the bed was a bit soft for my liking. Even so, we had a good night's sleep and never heard any noise from the hallway even though we were one of the closest rooms to the elevator. Hands down our highlight were the servers and hostess at Opaline restaurant. Alicia was so much fun to talk to and always had a warm, radiant smile. Our server Touffik was honestly the sweetest server we've worked with. He was very friendly, while being super attentive, quick to refill our glass, or offer to bring something out. We went for dinner, but came back for breakfast upon Touffik's recommendation. I LOVED the fresh croissants (heavenly!) and the french press coffee here for breakfast. These two really made our stay so memorable. Thank you both for a fabulous 50th birthday weekend! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Wonderful Hotel

Jan 27th, 2020

I had the opportunity to stay at the Sofitel in Washington, D.C. 2 weeks ago and it was wonderful! I was there to attend a meeting -- the meeting space and F&B offerings were excellent, the staff was helpful and the meeting rooms and guest rooms were nicely appointed. I had one issue with the TV in my room, but Casey from the Engineering department came up and fixed it right away. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Very efficient service all around, including concierge, room service, bell men and restaurant. This Hotel centrally located in Washington DC will give a peace of mine during your stay in the US capital. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Just average

Room was ok hotel was not on a 5 star level. I would rate it a 8 for a 4 star and a 6 for a 5 star. Room had a musty smell and bed linens seemed dirty. Parking and room service was a sub par value. The concierge was nice and helpful. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Engaging Staff and great Location

Jan 21st, 2020

Let me show a room we have to offer, the FrontDesk Manager said. My beloved and I were a bit shocked as there were other sweating souls waiting in line but we said sure and another hotel colleague seemed to be waiting for such a moment to dash out. We got into the elevator and was shown a much larger room than booked. We agreed to an upgrade fee and then saw the $1,000 be whisked from the Credit Card.. ouch I thought. THe Location is hard to get to by car as there are so many one way streets; however, on foot, Metro or the new scooters, you can get everywhere. The bartenders serve a good cocktail with heavy pours and chitchat for as long as you like as I experienced the first and second night of our stay. The room was of course spotless and the amenities Lanvin so well worth the stay. The housekeeping staff were very friendly as my beloved had her clothes, make-up, accessories and paraphernalia bursting from her valises and bags the entire time. They covered the entire living room for an open display system yet the HouseKeeping Team organized them each day with a little fun folding. The tips to keep the staff quiet about this behavior were enormous but well worth it indeed. Every elevator ride ends opening into the lobby which seemed like UN meeting cluttered with families from all over the world just waiting for someone else to arrive. Go to Sofitel if you want to be in the middle of the City yet not in the middle of the action. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
