    VIBE

    With classic Parisian panache, luxury French chain Sofitel has converted this stately 1880s National Landmark bank building into a chic, Euro-style hotel. Business types in town from "the Continent" favor the location just around the corner from the White House and K Street. The luxe Art Deco-inspired lobby oozes early 20th century glamour with jewel tones, brass fittings, and colored glass, and is well matched by the low-key yet sophisticated ambiance of the attached French bistro and bar. The real standout, though, is the ultra-friendly staff – from their charming greetings of “Bonjour madame…” to the congenial, efficient response to any request, great or small, you can’t help but be seduced.

    WHY WE LIKE IT

    Oh là là, we’re sweet on the elegant European vibes and French touches, especially in details like the basket of fresh croissants with our room service breakfast or the L’Occitane bath products. Whether we're in town for business or sightseeing, the location is equally convenient. Our favorite aspect has to be the phenomenal service, though – every single member of staff seems willing to bend over backwards to help.

    AMENITY WE LOVE

    ICI Urban Bistro. The food is great, and the Euro-chic vibe is fun.

    WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE

    Add a spa. Sofitel would definitely be able to come up with something pampering and Parisian, we’re sure of it.

    GOOD TO KNOW

    Complimentary tea and coffee are served in Le Bar daily, 6:00am-10:00am.
