Why We Love This Hotel

  • Recently renovated guest rooms, including new 55-inch flat-panel TVs, plush new bedding and USB charging stations 
  • The hotel's fresh look was inspired by a blend of contemporary American design and French elegance 
  • Located minutes from the White House and just one block from the Metro


The elegant Sofitel Washington DC Lafayette Square is located adjacent to the park's northeast corner, just steps from the White House. When it was revamped in 2015 to update all guest rooms, the hotel's art deco style received a contemporary update, taking its inspiration from the Palace of Versailles and the White House in a balance of French and American elements.

Each of the 237 "pleasantly spacious and well designed rooms" (Oyster.com) were recently refreshed with rich carpeting, plush linens and the Sofitel's signature SoBed with a featherbed topper, pillows and duvet. USB charging stations and 55-inch flat-panel TVs round out the more modern touches, and the bathrooms feature marble counters, a rainfall shower, a separate bathtub and luxurious Lanvin bath amenities. 

Other guest perks include nightly turndown service with bottled water, free overnight shoeshine service, complimentary Wi-Fi and newspaper delivery. While the hotel doesn't have a full spa, the Sofitel does offer in-room spa services, and there's a fitness center as well. 

The hotel's iCi Urban Bistro features traditional French cuisine with contemporary American twists. The chicken and mushroom crepes and foie gras with sour cherry compote are two of the bistro's signature dishes; Gayot called the bistro "sophisticated [and] distinguished." For drinks, the hotel's Le Bar lounge features Champagne by the glass along with signature cocktails and handcrafted martinis.
