The Sofitel in DC is amazing. Everything about the "neighborhood" is delightful. Clean, safe, well-lit at night. Such a great location to everything on The Mall. We will definitely go back!

The Ice machine did not work. No real refrigerator, unless you take out all the "for pay" incidentals and use it to put your own food. No table to eat a meal, no microwave, coffee in the lounge, but coffee in the room was Expresso. The internet services limits you to 5megabytes, forget streaming your own movie without paying the extra fee. No pool or Jacuzzi. Overall, you're paying for the location, but not worth it in my opinion. Do your self a favor and look a few blocks down.
