Whether you are from the US or not, America’s capital city is an amazing choice for a memorable vacation. Washington DC is the place to go to learn all about American history and culture, and what better way to experience all that the city has to offer than to stay right in the city center! We partnered with the Sofitel Washington DC and Travel Mindset a few weeks ago to explore DC, and we’re excited to bring you with us through a day of our experience at the Sofitel!

The hotel itself, friendly staff and attention to detail are top notch at this 5 star property— and the location is walking distance from all the most popular monuments and museums in DC. Not to mention it’s less than 2 blocks from the White House, which is reason enough to book your stay here! Add in the amazing french-inspired interior, great views and delicious food and this hotel has all the makings of a great spot for a holiday!

Come along with us to see our itinerary for 24 hours at Sofitel Washington DC!

24 Hours at Sofitel Washington DC


Wake up and head down to the gym for a quick workout to start the day off right! You can also book ahead for a fitness or yoga class if you prefer to work out with an instructor.


Head up to your room to shower and get ready for the day ahead. But before you do, don’t forget to grab a coffee and a newspaper in the lobby on your way up!


Go all out and order room service— because nothing beats having breakfast in the comfort of your room! 


Walk over to your self-guided tour of the White House. Make sure to book your appointment in advance and bring nothing but your phone and ID with you. You won’t have to worry about being late because it is only a block and a half away from the hotel!



Make your way back to Sofitel to have lunch at Opaline. Sit outside to enjoy the city views, and order the tuna tartar and the lobster cobb salad… you’ll thank us later. ;)


Head out to explore the city! There are endless options of what to see and do in DC, and the best part about experiencing it from Sofitel is that you are central to so many incredible sights and museums! Check out our post with 15 Things To Do in Washington DC for more!



Head back to the hotel for an Apertivo at Opaline— and make sure to sit inside in the bar area for a change of scenery. 



If the weather is nice, make your way outside for dinner al fresco Opaline. If the romantic lights hadn’t already lured you in already, that is. Oh— and make sure to order the steak and frites. It is to die for! Or the salmon if you’re pescatarian. And the Ratatouille if you’re vegetarian. Basically there’s something for everyone and it’s all so delicious! 



Enjoy a nightcap and head up to relax in your luxurious room! Watch a show or a movie ((Sofitel offers international channels and on-demand movies!)), read a book, or whatever it is that makes you feel relaxed and ready for another day exploring this amazing city!

Thanks so much for joining us for 24 Hours at Sofitel Washington DC! We really think this hotel is the perfect place to stay to get the full Washington DC experience. It’s perfect for couples, families, and solo travelers alike!
