Great location, decent value”

Steps from McPherson Square station, the location was very convenient and nearby the National Mall. Also, a block from the Circulator bus route if you're coming from Union Station, which will also take you to Georgetown. We were able to walk around the neighborhood, but also close enough to scooters to take in the National Mall area. Rooms were comfortable, clean, and decent value for the area, and we slept decent on the feathertop bed. We didn't make use of facilities outside of our room, but we were able to just sit downstairs in the patio area in the morning and take in the pedestrian street scene. All in all, a good stay in a great location!

Fir me, it is important to have friendly staff from the hotel who are genuinely helpful. I have the pleasure of meeting 3 of them from the various work areas in your hotel. Though some arrangements may not have been smooth during my 4 nights stay at Sofitel, I'm pleased that your 3 staff have "erased" the unpleasantries and i will recommend your hotel to anyone. Kudos to Mr Casey from your technical dept, Mr Alioune and Mr Milan from your front desk... Good men who made good staff and ambassadors of Sofitel.
