In some way, every Sofitel is a Parisian hotel, and despite the inescapable fact of its location in downtown Washington, the Lafayette is no exception. Francophone staff click-clack over shiny black-and-white marble floors as jazz floats overhead; chic young things lounge artfully in the dramatic wine-and-gray halls of Le Bar, sipping champagne. The 237 Art Deco-inspired rooms, white with red-velvet accents, are creatively lit, and hung with original paintings, black-and-white architectural photos of Washington, and—la surprise—Paris. Corner rooms 14 and 26 have windows on two sides flooding the space with light.

Room to Book:

Suite 1114 has Japanese-inspired, red-lacquer wall panels, sexy crushed-velour chaise lounge, and over-the-top leopard-print armchairs.

Insider Tip:

Grab healthy lunch at the hotel's Ici Urban Bistro. Order from the De-Light menu— developed by nutrition experts Thalassa Sea & Spa in France—and try the chef's favorite: cured salmon with lemon-infused potatoes and herb salad.
