The location was perfect, walking distance to museums and capitol building. The hotel itself was great. The staff was professional and friendly. And provided the best assistance they could with the times (pandemic) we are all living through, so there hospitality was appreciated. I’m definitely going to recommend this location to family and friends. Thank you for a great stay.

Hotel was stylish, well appointed. Cost was less than I would expect for this caliber of hotel, which was nice. Wish the breakfast would have been available, but maybe on our next stay.

Location can’t be better, it’s a beautiful property! Although it’s different to be careful of covid than to take advantage of covid!!! The towels need replacement asap, the sofa had several stains, the restaurant was closed, the minibar did not work, I asked for sugar for the coffee many times never received it! The room was not cleaned every day and all of this they said it was because of covid!!!

Chris Couples - 05/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

I again enjoyed my stay. The only concerns were those which were likely beyond ur easy control and that had to do with limited room service and the closing of the in-house restaurant so that breakfast was not available.

Dear Mr. F., Thank you very much for your review. We love to hear that you enjoyed your stay and will ensure to share your feedback about the restaurant with the team. Sincerely, The Sofitel Team

Aaron Couples - 04/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

The front desk staff was very pleasant to speak to. They were knowledgeable about places to eat since breakfast was cancelled. The bar was open one night when we were there but everything else was closed. The room was good, but it was super hot and we couldn’t change the temperature. I really wished we could have been compensated by getting an upgrade. When I made the reservation I asked if we could have a view of the White House but we didn’t. Overall it was an okay stay.

Hone away from Home

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Js Couples - 04/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

Sofitel Lafayette is our home away from home. Any time we're in DC, it's our "go to" hotel. They have a welcoming staff; are conscientious of needs and concerns; have taken steps to make you feel comfortable and, more importantly confident that safety and cleanliness are a priority. Rooms are well appointed and clean (top priority!). Amenities, including the bar and restaurant are also very good, with great staff. While there are lower cost alternatives that are probably very nice, we have found that the comfort, consistency and confidence we have in Sofitel lafayette is worth it. And, you can't beat the location!

Dear Mr, S., We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Sofitel Washington DC Lafayette Square. It is always a pleasure to receive positive feedback. We love to hear that you enjoyed the staff, the cleanliness, the room and the bar! We can't wait to welcome you back soon! Sincerely, The Sofitel Team

A bit disappointed

Customer review rating 2.5/5

Arian P. Couples - 04/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

Sofitel has always been one of my favorite hotels for obvious reasons. However I was a bit disappointed with this stay. The bedroom area wouldn't get cool and would only blow heat initially. And the biggest disappointment was the mini bar in the room and also at the front desk was unavailable.... and it was obviously New Years weekend.

Dear Arian P., Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the Sofitel Washington DC Lafayette Square.

Please rest assured that we have taken the appropriate measures to ensure future problems are prevented. Sadly, I am also aware that we had the unfortunate event of closing our restaurant due to unforeseen COVID-19 related events during your stay. I do want to sincerely apologies about this, as the decision was made to temporarily close the restaurant out of the safety of both our guests, and colleagues. We appreciate your sharing your concerns, and it is our hope that you will give us the opportunity to better serve you in the near future.

The hotel is old, but the staff were excellent during the time that we stayed there. Unfortunately, they had run out of things like extra blankets or couldn't source them for when we needed them.

Jonathan R. Families - 02/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

Great location, really nice hotel. You need more staff - valet especially took a very long time to get car each time, and often when we returned to the hotel with the car we had to wait around for a long time to find someone to give the car to. Restaurant being closed during much of stay was very inconvenient, especially since many nearby restaurants were not open. Staff was courteous and nice throughout.

Dear Mr. R., Thank you for sharing your experience following your stay. We are happy It is thanks to feedback like yours that we can improve what we do or celebrate if we got it right. We hope to be able to better serve you in the near future. Sincerely, The Sofitel Team
