"A great hotel"
We stayed here for 3 nights at the start of a trip which also took in Virginnia and Maryland. Unfortunately my husband's suitcase was not on the flight when we landed so we didn't arrive at the hotel in good spirits .. but the hotel provided lots of free toiletries plus they offer free wine between 5pm - 6pm so that all helped. Happy to report that the bag arrived 24 hours later by which time the hotel had given us more free drinks and a meal though none of this of course was their fault. The bedroom was perfect, the staff most helpful and obliging, breakfasts excellent too so we can't praise the hotel enough. It's in a great location too for all the major sites so stay here - you won't be disappointed.
"Another fantastic Kimpton Hotel!!"
Phil at the front desk was truly awesome!!! We thoroughly enjoyed the wine hour near the fireplace. The room was absolutely spectacular, pristine and beautifully appointed. The entire experience was first class!!! I highly recommend this hotel for a fantastic location, exceptional service and a beautiful, spotless room. The customer service is outstanding!!!
"Good, with one complaint"
This is a good, clean, quiet hotel. It is not in the centre of Washington but close to Metro and walking distance (just) from White House etc. Rooms were large and comfortable. The food was good although there was little choice of hot food at breakfast. Their complimentary wine service late afternoon was a nice touch. Our one complaint is that they ran out of "proper" (English Breakfast) tea. Although that was excusable, the fact they didn't replace it wasn't.
"5 star hotel"
Stayed at the hotel for a night for business. The hotel is situated a few blocks from Dupont Circle, in a good location but on a side street so less traffic. Reasonably priced for DC and what you get. The best part was the hotel staff. They greeted me warmly and were much more accommodating than most hotel staff (even offering to print out some work I was having trouble accessing on my work computer). Queen room was fairly small, but clean and modernly decorated, with extremely comfortable beds and robes you can use. I didn't experience any problems with the elevator like some reviewers mentioned or any noise (was on the 7th floor). Wasn't able to take advantage of the wine/cheese or the meals there, but it is within short walking distance of a lot of other restaurants as well. Wi-fi is free if you join the Kimptons rewards program (which is also free to join). Also noticed that they allow dogs to stay there. Only issue I experienced was trying to get a cab in the morning when it rained. It took about 30 minutes (because it is on a side street, most taxis don't go down it), and the attendant wasn't much help. Would recommend using Uber app if you need to hail car service. Would definitely stay here again the next time I am in DC - was one of the nicer Kimpton hotels I've been in.
