Housed in a completely refurbished and updated historic landmark building, Sofitel Lafayette Square, Washington D.C. offers a unique blend of classic with contemporary. The hotel stands proudly on the corner of Washington, D.C.'s genteel Lafayette Square, which borders the White House. This park has not only strong historical credentials but also a number of links to France and was named for the French Marquis de Lafayette, who fought for the Colonies and commanded American troops during the Revolutionary War. Landmarks such as the National Theatre, the Smithsonian Institution and the new Convention Center are just a few minutes walk away. Sofitel Lafayette Square's unique interpretation of luxury, the French "Art de Vivre," is a blend of tradition and innovation that builds on the French reputation for architecture, interior design and cuisine. The hotel embraces this philosopy by surrounding guests in luxurious comfort, style, sophistication and a level of personal attention that cannot only be seen, but also felt. The hotel features 237 guestrooms including 17 suites, all tastefully designed by the renowned French designer, Pierre-Yves Rochon. There is no better example of Rochon's handiwork than the hotel's high-ceilinged lobby, which has been restored in a way that preserves the historic authenticity of its original 1920s construction. With its pale beige marble walls and beige-and-black marble flooring, rich moldings and gold leaf accents that draw upon the beige tones of the ceiling, and large bronze chandelier with cut frosted glass, the lobby exudes luxury. The courteous multilingual staff's attention to detail ensures that guests enjoy a gracious and hospitable stay in an elegant, urban retreat. Experience a new level of service and attention to detail that can only be defined as Sofitel Lafayette Square.
