The elegant Sofitel Washington D.C. Lafayette Square is located adjacent to the park's northeast corner, just steps from the White House. The hotel offers an ideal starting point for guests who wish to explore the monuments, museums and D.C.'s rising culinary scene. The hotel's contemporary art deco style takes its inspiration from the Palace of Versailles and the White House in a balance of French and American elements. 

Each of the spacious and chic guest rooms feature 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. 

Guests can indulge in steak frites, tuna tartare or a handcrafted cocktail at the trendy on-site restaurant. The elegant Opaline Bar & Brasserie features "a cohesive mix of curved brass lighting fixtures, black-and-white tiled flooring and sexy retro prints" (Eater D.C.) and serves approachable French cuisine all day.
