« Beautiful Hotel and Excellent Customer Service »

I always try to stay at the Sofitel Washington DC for my business trips. It is a beautiful, historic hotel with nicely appointed modern rooms, a nice gym/spa area and excellent customer service. The food in their restaurant is very good and I’ve had several breakfast meetings there. It’s also in a really great location at LaFayette Square with lots of great restaurants within walking distance. I will definitely be coming back there for my next trip.

« Great staff, very clean and beautiful property, room was spacious »

From the minute I arrived the staff was very helpful. The bellman showed me all the amenities of my room which was very helpful. The restaurant staff were great every morning and remembered us each morning and greeted us by name. The property was well maintained and clean. Room was spacious enjoyed staying here.

Not happy with my final bill, I have previously stayed at your hotel and have never encountered issues with my bill. I was charged a pre-payment for my stay on credit card and then another charge for taxes and room service. As a result, my expense report for my hotel stay will be difficult to expense. Again I have never had this occur before as a former hotel guest. I work with Blue Cross Blue Shield and would hope that something can be done for my inconvenience.

« Love the Sofitel »

Spouse and I enjoyed our three-night stay at the Sofitel Lafayette Park. Our fourth floor room facing 15th Street was very comfortable, very clean and very quiet--both AC and no traffic noise, although for the luxury category a tad on the small side. Only four hangers for two closets was problematic. Bathroom was super clean and bright with generous toiletries. Staff was very pleasant and accommodating--reception, bellmen, security-Kalaba, and all bar staff, especially Allan. Enjoy a cocktail on the pretty terrace facing 15th Street. We look forward to our next stay at the Lafayette Park Sofitel in the spring.

« Always a great experience at the Sofitel DC »

I love the Sofitel DC (as well as the Sofitel NYC). After staying many other places in DC (St. Regis, Willard, JW Marriott), I now always stay at the Sofitel. It has a boutique-like feel with excellent customer service and security. The hotel has undergone numerous renovations in the 18 years they have been opened, so the hotel always has a fresh, up-to-date feel. Many restaurants have opened across the street from the hotel in all directions - Joe's Stone Crab, Woodward Table, and Bobby Van's Steakhouse to name a few. The location - 2 blocks from the White House - can't be beat. I highly recommend the Sofitel and wish there were more of them in the U.S.

« The beds were so disappointing. »

This is a beautiful hotel in a great location for sightseeing. Looks like they are in the midst of renovations to some parts of the hotel, which is nice. The rooms are spacious and well appointed and the staff is welcoming and courteous. All the makings of an exceptional stay. Until you get to the beds! Our room had two double beds with these strange toppers on them. As you slept, the toppers would slide to one side or the other. If you were the only person sleeping in the middle of the bed it was ok but if two people were sleeping in the bed together, one person would end up without the topper on the hard mattress and the other person would be sliding off the other side of the bed with the topper. Sadly, it was 3 nights of awful sleep!

« Always a good experience at the Sofitel »

I have stayed at numerous DC hotels including the Willard and the JW Marriott but I now stay at the Sofitel whenever I can. It has a boutique feel, the customer service and location are excellent, and the rooms are large and beautifully appointed. In the 18 years since they opened, they have renovated several times keeping things up to date. In addition many restaurants have opened across the street in every direction (Joe's Stone Crab, Woodward Table, Bobby Van's Steakhouse. The location, 2 blocks from the White House, can't be beat.

« Love our stays at the Sofitel, Washington, DC. »

We arrived early, but to our delight our room was ready. The front desk receptionists were pleasant, helpful and professional. The location is perfect for seeing the sites on the mall, monuments and plenty of restaurants nearby. Our room was beautiful, well-appointed and bright; the bed was so comfortable. One of our favorite treats is the pressed coffee in the mornings! When in Washington, our first choice of hotels is the Sofitel. Magnifique!

« Great property, very nice rooms, great location »

Easy to get to from Reagan airport, less than 15 minutes drive. Great location from which to see DC museums and monuments. Property itself was very well maintained, great and spacious rooms. We held business meetings there, space was nice, food was great, as well as the service. The bar served as a group takeoff and landing spot in the evenings.

« The level of customer service is diminishing. »

1. I did not get my morning paper. 2. Even though I had finished the courtesy bottle of Evian it was removed from my room by housekeeping. 3. Upon leaving I had 8 insect bites on my ankle and arms. Not sure if it was a spider, flea or bedbug but it was disconcerting. I have been staying at this property for 12 years and this was the first time I had anything like this occur. Not the best experience by far.
