of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
Room was large and clean but smelt musty. Bed was comfortable. Location was good. If you need internet for business, WiFi was dreadfully slow. Some of the servers were enthusiastic - some reception staff less so. Didn't appreciate the face made upon one query at front desk, or the uncovered yawning in my face upon another. Restaurant was closed one night for private party with virtually no warning - perhaps would have been better to tell us at check-in, rather than us arriving back to find out at the end of the day.
"Excellent hotel, Good value"
Good value in a great location near Dupont Circle. Early evening wine happy hour was appreciated. Very friendly bellmen and front desk staff. We also ate a fantastic meal at the hotel restaurant Urbana.
"I Need Sleep (and Wi Fi)"
This is my second time visiting this hotel, I have also visited two Kimptons in Philadelphia, so I know the brand. It is not necessarily my particular style in furnishings, but that is not really an issue. the bed was comfortable, the room large. This hotel is a great location, right near DuPont Circle and easy access to the metro. Check in was great, and the desk person was very friendly and welcoming. The room was the same type as last visit, a spa king, very large, with a giant jetted soaking tub. It had been remodeled since last time, no longer has shutters to open from bath to main room so you can watch tv and soak. Too bad, liked this option. No big deal, through. Sink is still the same, a bit form over function and splashy. Although the room was remodeled, the hallway looked a little weird, like a cheap apartment hallway' The thermostat was set at 67 upon our entrance, but the room still seemed humid. Maybe from spa tub usage of previous guest' We kept it set there when we went out, thinking it would cool off and dry while we were gone. Came back to sleep that night, room was still humid, but cooler. During the night we were both very warm (to sweaty) got up and turned the thermo to 65. That was a bit better, but now we were somehow clammy but chilly' Could not get wifi to work in room. Told the desk clerk at check out and he began to tell us how to get on the network. Um, I travel all the time, I know how to get on a network, unless you are doing something no other hotel does ... it wasn't working. He also did not ask us how our stay was. I told him anyway. One night, a barking dog from somewhere within the hotel kept us up and occasionally awakened us again over the course of hours. Pet friendly is great, but if guests leave their room without their dog, and it barks, there should be some contingency. I am sure this has happened before. Another night was slamming doors and drunken hallway hi-jinks. Not really the hotel's fault, but why can't someone invent hotel doors that don't slam, and have that easy close feature that many kitchen drawers have so they don't slam' What is the responsibility of the hotel is telling their own staff, mostly housekeeping but maybe some maintenance people, to not shout down the hallway to each other in the morning when some guests want to sleep in, like all the ones with the privacy signs on the door. The attached bar is nice (forget the name) with very friendly staff. But, we wanted some munchies, ordered mixed nuts from the menu, it was all almonds. Now I love almonds, but for some reason this is the one nut hubs doesn't like. If it had stated "Almonds" instead of "Mixed Nuts" we would not have ordered it. The price was great. It was a crazy weekend due to the opening of the new museum, and most hotels kept jacking up their rates, but we booked way ahead. I think it is a pretty good option at a great price point, I just really wanted to get a good night's sleep (0 for 3) and I do like to use wi-fi. I could have mentioned the wi fi problem to the front desk, and maybe something could have been done, but it really should be working and/or self evident how to use. Yes, I would book again and give it another shot. My first visit was better. In all honesty, this is my back-up hotel if my favorite (The Willard) is in its outrageous pricing mode. Yes, they are two distinctly different types of hotels, and I judge each for what they are, and their price point, I do not compare them to each other.
"Friendly and thoughtful service always. "
They are always incredible friendly and helpful. They are thoughtful and create a warm and welcoming feel. The restaurant was yummy for cocktails and breakfast. I would recommend any of my friends or family to stay there.
Good location with plenty of good eating places nearby. Try DuPont Bar. V. Good food 5 minutes away. The hotel is a little tired and toilet dodgey. Can walk to Smithsonian and all the wonderful museums.
