First, there are lots of options to stay in a major city, and the Sofitel has a wonderful location. A few blocks walking to major points of interest but not so remote that you're limited to only what's offered by the hotel itself. The Sofitel has plenty of restaurants, a metro station, and sites like the White House and Ellipse (where the Christmas trees are set up) that provide great convenience. It's also in an area that we had no worries about walking around no matter the time of the day. The second major plus is the staff. They really are welcoming and helpful, wanting to provide a pleasant interaction. Check-in and check-out was a breeze, they handed out umbrellas to help keep guests dry as they headed out, and the bar staff made wonderful cocktails. I was thanked for my loyalty as an Accor Live Limitless member, provided with our welcome beverage tickets, and received a complimentary upgrade to a wonderful, spacious junior suite. The room itself was well laid out, had plenty of outlets, and represented the Sofitel brand well. This was our second excellent stay since September, and we will look to the Sofitel if we ever have future plans in the city that necessitate staying overnight.

Well located

For a one night stay for two long days of work as a federal executive, the experience was perfect. Thanks to the staff at the desk for noticing me in line and calling me forward in a busy lobby. It made me feel seen and welcomed after a hard day.
