OVERVIEW of Sofitel Washington DC

The French inspired Sofitel Lafayette Square is a favorite for its service, stylish rooms and price/value. With 220 rooms and 17 suites, this charming hotel is both comfortable and intimate.

I was greeted immediately upon leaving my cab and the doorman introduced himself and asked for the name on my reservation. We made our way down the marble hallway, festooned with a dozen or so Cala lilies where I was introduced to the reception clerk. Check-in was swift and I was on my way to my room in a matter of a few minutes.

THE ROOMS at Sofitel Washington DC

The European styled bedroom, with a city view, was a good size with a writing desk, reading chair and lamp. It was decorated in colors of beige and hunter green with dark wood furniture and accents. The walls had black framed prints of France and Washington with an interesting impressionist oil painting over the bed which I took to be the coast of Normandy. The queen sized bed had a feather top, down duvet and plump feather pillows and made for a wonderful night’s sleep.

French doors opened onto the bathroom which was large and done in a green and beige marble. There was a separate tub and glass shower, a vase of fresh orchids and wonderful Roger & Gallet toiletries from Paris.
