Superb level of comfort and class in central DC. Everything about the hotel offers class and style with a distinct European feel. Even the interior rooms are wonderful. I would not hesitate to stay again. Only downside is that it is rather expensive.

Great location

Pros: The location
Cons: Wifi didn't work one morning, and they were a bit slow to fix, but did apologise
Location: Near White House, and close to museums and other sites
This is a well located hotel, very close to the White House and withing walking distance of the major attractions. Free tea/coffee in the mornings, and plenty of dining options nearby (breakfast, lunch and dinner). Room was a reasonable size, and staff all very friendly

5 nights in DC

Pros: Location, 5 mins walk from the White House. Very comfortable.
Cons: Entrance could be a bit grander, and a bit more obvious.
Location: White House round the corner, and National Mall with many visitor attractions off it, only 10-15 minutes walk away.
Arrived after a long flight with an easy check and directions to room. Room very nice, comfortable and clean. Didn't use the hotel restaurant as lots of other offerings not far away. Turn down service every night was welcomed. Luggage held for half a day until car pick up, as room n/a any longer as it was full. But staff were accommodating as they could be under the circumstances.

Die Tür vom Bad ist nicht die Beste Lösung. Wir haben ein Taschentuch zwischen Boden und Tür eingeklemmt, dass diese auch offenbleibt Richtung Zimmertüre. zwei Tage später hat dann ein Zimmermädchen einen Türstopper befestigt, was eine super Leistung für uns war. Könnte man dies nicht gleich in jedem Zimmer deponieren. Die Frottewäsche war sehr alt und durchgewaschen. Fäden hingen raus und sie war gräulich und nicht weiss. Da muss ich ein Pluspunkt an New York im Sofitel geben, da war die Frotewäsche sehr schön und Neu Alles andere war sehr schön. Tiptop und immer sauber.

meilleur emplacement

idéal pour découvrir la ville proche de la maison blanche, des monuments et des musées métro et plein de restos à proximité le resto de l'hotel n'est pas mal non plus dommage qu'il n'y avait pas de buffet pour le petit-déjeuner
