Recent guest reviews

Close to Whitehouse and museums. Walked everyday. Nearby restaurants North and Founding Farmers were excellent and reasonably priced.

Nice and clean Staff was friendly and helpful Close to attractions

Best stay in Washington My fiancé wanted to stay in Paris this was next best thing Joes famous seafood next door was best place we have eaten in a long while Warren our waiter went way out to make our experience the best

I had a romantic evening with my wife planned. At check in, they overbooked, so no king bed for us! Instead they offered a free drink, and we also did not get a view - which i paid for with an upgraded room. I was very disappointed. Is this an Orbitz problem or hotel? I'm not sure, but I'm not happy about it.

Wonderful spot, I will look forward to staying here again.

This hotel is in ideal location, walking distance to white house, monuments, museums.

Great room, comfortable bed, super bar and wonderful staff at a reasonable price.

Very nice and comfortable. Great location near the WH.

Friendly staff, good hotel in a great location. Would stay again.

I love this hotel so much I’ve stayed here twice this year. The staff is so nice and the rooms are a good size. Whenever I’m in the area I’ll stay here. It’s close to all attractions with a decent variety of options of food.

Every thing was ok except they do not clean the room til 5:00 pm which is very strange. I have been to many different Hotels and usually they clean the room some times in the morning or max early in the afternoon.

Classy hotel close to everything. We biked the GAP and C&O Towpath from Pittsburgh to DC and then needed a place to stay. We biked to the front door of the Sofitel all sweaty and muddy and the staff was super in greeting us, taking care of our bikes and the concierge found a wonderful Italian Restaurant one block away.... we were starved. Checking was flawless, bellman was superb, the room was clean, comfortable and the shower was awesome!

Desk was very helpful, needed luggage held after checkout - no problem even though I had to access it once and didn't reclaim it until evening- check in and out was easy, most importantly-room, elevator and hallway was very clean and I am difficult to please in that area- great experience

We had an overall good stay, great staff but the towels and mattresses could be better.
