A Pleasant Stay

The Sofitel was good, but I would not say 'great.' Don't get me wrong, the staff was incredibly nice and arranged for a last minute Segway trip for us around Washington, DC. They even helped with tracking down a misplaced pair of glasses. I guess I expected a bit more in the 'amenities'...no nice little chocolate on the pillow, morning croissants, etc. Still it is very well located in DC and the staff is extremely helpful.

Bring lots of money. A small bag of cashews from the mini bar is $9.00!

outstanding experience

Our experience was wonderful. The staff, room, comfort, and location were superb. We were in Washington DC to attend the 9-12 Taxpayer March and the location was absolutely perfect. The bed provided the most comfortable and restful sleep -- and (I) travel all over the country. There is no comparison to the Washington DC Mandarin Oriental where we stayed in April. The only objection to Cheap tickets arrangements would be not to arrange transportation because it was only available by voucher and we still had to call to make reservations. Next time, we will make local transportation separately from Cheap Tickets and conduct business directly with the local transportation company.

If you like cigars, Shelly's Back Room is a must! They have an excellent cigar menu with a local relaxed and affordable tavern-style restaurant with quick attentive service.

Lovely stay at the Sofitel

We flew in on a red eye and were able to check our bags with the front desk. Check in is listed as 3 PM, but they were able to get us a room by 11 AM! The staff is wonderful, breakfast lovely and the room very comfortable. The location is very convenient (right behind the White House). We will definitely stay there again.

Great staff/location to the mall and metro

The hotel was very comfortable. The hotel is not cheap but very little is in Washington, DC. Would we stay there again...Yes.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Always take the Metro and if you plan to be there >= 3 days purchase the pass for unlimited use for seven days. When we were there in 9/07 it was only $22.00.
