Excellent hotel
We (2 adults and 2 children) stayed in a room with 2 Queen beds. The room was spacious, the service was impeccable. They also accommodated us by checking us in early, and upgrading us to a larger room. Walking distance to the white house! Highly recommend.

Repeat stay and will continue to stay
Stayed during Covid-19. Everything was very clean so we felt comfortable from the front desk/checkin to the elevators and our rooms. Will happily stay again! This is a great location- close proximity to all the major sights and metro stops.

Great stay, parking nighhtmare!
The hotel is great; however, the walk from their parking garage to the hotel is long. I understand why they are not doing valet parking at the moment, but it is an inconvenience.

Wonderful hotel. Great staff. Close to everything. Will stay again when in DC.
Gary, us1 night family trip
Very good 8.0
Overall, great stay
The staff was very friendly, the junior suite rooms do not have a nice view, the liquor fridge items were sparse/not stocked, not clean- charged for a drink that I did not have but they removed the charge. The room itself was nice, great bathroom, awesome bed, limited tv channels, perfect location
Ryan, us1 night trip
Good 6.0
The hotel is was a little dated and not like other Sofitel’s we have stayed in in the past. Employees and service were great, though.
