A refined hotel with a lovely eatery and a prime location off Lafayette Square, perfect for capital-city sightseeing

Luxe it up in the nation’s capital, at Sofitel Washington DC Lafayette Square. This TripAdvisor favorite and Certificate of Excellence winner is steps from the White House, and you’d be forgiven for confusing the two, what with the former’s sumptuous décor, newly opened brasserie, room-service program, state-of-the-art fitness center and elegant cocktail lounge. Each room at this base boasts a feathertop SoBed and an indulgent rain shower, so you can rest up – and freshen up – in style.

Then, head outside for a day on the town. The U.S. Capitol, Dupont Circle, the Lincoln Memorial, the Washington Monument and the Kennedy Center are also nearby. Get acquainted with other cultures, in spots like Chinatown and Little Ethiopia, or by taking a walk down Embassy Row. Or, simply stroll around the surrounding plaza – would you expect a label like Sofitel to pick any other square for its capital-city location than this one, named for the Revolution’s most famous Frenchmen?
