« Luxury hotel in a top location »

The hotel has a great location, only 5 minutes away from the white house. We booked this hotel at a great rate and we even got an upgrade. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would return to this hotel while staying in Washington DC.

« BabyMoon in DC »

The Sofitel in Lafayette Square was the perfect choice for my recent BabyMoon in DC! The experience starts with a warm greeting from the doormen who graciously escort you to the front desk for check-in. The desk staff are courteous and efficient. The lift then whisks you away to your room. Ours was a king suite. While the view was of an interior courtyard, the plentiful windows allowed for a ton of natural light. The room was huge and the bathroom was luxurious. As usual, the Sofitel bed and linens were amazingly comfortable. The hotel is quiet, the cleaning staff does an impeccable job and the concierge is extremely helpful. The location can't be beat. You are steps from the White House, a stroll away from the museums and exploring the up and coming 14th St Corridor is a breeze from the hotel. After two nights, we felt relaxed, pampered and refreshed!

Joseph C, Director of Operations at Sofitel Washington DC, responded to this review

Dear Sara T, Thank you for choosing Sofitel Washington D.C. to celebrate your special occasion! I have shared your comments regarding your experience with our General Manager, Alexandra Byrne, who appreciates all guest feedback.

« VERY GOOD LOCATION »

Location of hotel is very good once is close to White House, Museums, Memorials, Obelisco, Capitólio. We can visit all amenities if the whether is good, because if not, we must to take a Trolley Bus for example and spot in any attraction to visit.

« Perfect location for stay in DC »

Excellent hotel in a perfect location for a brief vacation in the Capitol. Especially wonderful if you are traveling with your furry family members. Staff & service were great. Even though the hotel is a bit older and somewhat pricey, it was very clean and there are deals available if one books in advance. We will definitely stay again.

Joseph C, Director of Operations at Sofitel Washington DC, responded to this review

« Great location »

Two nights stay; great location to tour the White House, monuments and museums. Dined at Oval Room, Del Frisco, Oceannaire, and Tabard Inn...all really good. Nice room (#804) with fine amenities. Concierge was on top of his game. Highly recommended.

Joseph C, Director of Operations at Sofitel Washington DC, responded to this review

Dear bscfour, Thank you for sharing your stay with us! I am thrilled that you were able to take advantage of our central location in the heart of historic Washington.

« CHA trip to Washington, D.C. »

The front desk seemed chronically understaffed, and with only two practical check in spots to begin with, when the hotel is short-staffed there, it causes back ups that, in my opinion for what one pays is unacceptable. Saying "bonjour" when the customer steps up to the counter doesn't really help much when you've just finished a multi-hour flight, you're tired, and you just want to get to the room. Second, due to some last minute changes in my second day of meetings, I tried to see if I could get a later check-out time. It was supposed to be 12:30 p.m., and I needed to see if we could extend to 2:30 p.m., because my afternoon meetings had been moved several blocks away to G Street in D.C. So my traveling companion was still in the room asleep. The front desk clerk basically said "no," as you were already overbooked. I don't think that in my entire life I've ever been told "no," outright without even an attempt to see if we could get at least a little bit of an extension. As it was, I had to run back upstairs and get my companion up and throw together our clothes and get out of there right away. So he ended up checking the luggage in downstairs and went across to a Starbucks to sit for two-and-a-half hours. Again... for over $400 a night, I expected something other than "Holiday Inn" services. But I suppose that is okay, because you never claimed that you were the Ritz-Carlton, and you certainly are not in that league.

Joseph C, Director of Operations at Sofitel Washington DC, responded to this review

Dear rbonar1, Thank you very much for sharing your comments regarding your stay with us. We always appreciate feedback as it helps us improve the quality of our services. Please allow me to offer my most sincere apologies for the inconveniences you encountered upon check in and check out. We genuinely strive to provide exceptional service and ensure that our guests are completely satisfied. Please rest assured that all your comments were taken very seriously and that a thorough investigation has taken place in order to prevent any future occurrences. Furthermore, I deeply regret that we were unable to resolve these inconveniences to your full satisfaction. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back and provide the quality of service you have the right to expect from our hotel. Warm regards,
