"My Home in DC"
My first stay here will not be my last. The location is perfect right in the midst of Dupont Circle. You are two blocks from Metro. The neighborhood is vibrant with shops, restaurants and a local appeal that was not present in my other stays in Downtown DC. The lobby is a bit noisy for my taste, but the rooms couldn't be quieter. Everything is provided for, even a yoga mat. The room was clean and comfortable. If you join the Kimpton Club, Wifi is free.
"Great place to stay"
We stayed for a week, the family room was huge with a large bathroom too. Buffet breakfast was a good way to start the day and there was enough choice for us. The subway was not far but we tended to walk to most places which is fine if you like a lot of walking. I would definitely stay here again
"BIG room and wine!"
This hotel is on P Street, convenient for the Metro, plenty of local restaurants (which are 'Washington over-priced') and the Phillips Collection Art Gallery. We had a quiet room on the top floor (10) which was pleasantly large. Between 5 and 6 each evening there is Wine, Pizza, olives and crackers in an entrance lounge area around the fireplace. It was a mini vacation to celebrate our 43rd Wedding Anniversary and gave us pleasant memories. We'll stay there again
"Chic hotel with some issues"
Good - This hotel is located near a lot of restaurants, at (medium) walking distance from Georgetown M street's restaurants and shops. Also (long) walking distance to Lincoln Memorial, and (not so long) walk to George Washington U Foggy Bottom campus. It's also close to jogging paths, even lets you have bicycles for free. It has free wine (red and white) of decent quality every day, and a free cocktail when you arrive. The room I got was very big (twice the size of standard rooms) with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the street. The furniture is chic, you even get a faux-fur throw on your bed. The mattress and pillows are OK. There is ample wardrobe space, with many wood hangers. Bad - worst of all - the air conditioning quits during the early morning hours (2-4am) so you may get stifling hot. Sometimes I got hot water, sometimes I didn't! The elevator buttons of the middle elevator (multiple floors) were broken for several days. The gym was borderline OK, equipment looked like it hadn't been properly wiped after many uses during the day, weights were off-place (some missing). The "chic" didn't apply to the gym - looked kind of depressing. The pool was already closed "for the season" even though it was hot outside - recommend you check on the pool status before reserving if this is important for you. The business center (where you print your boarding pass) limits you to 15 minutes on the computer (which is OK) but ticks every second with a very loud beep that can't be stopped - it was unbelievable annoying and distracting. There was construction on the street right outside the hotel, so sleeping late won't be quite possible now (depending on your luck). The room smells a bit old/musty. You have to pay for the WiFi unless you join the hotel's chain loyalty program - which will get you email spam. Overall - depends on what you are looking for. If free wine is important for you, and the gym and pool don't matter, location is important but hot water and AC don't matter - this is for you.
"Great location and pet friendly"
You are greeted by a bowl of biscuits and water (for your pet) at the door, but the hotel is still a great place for human beings too. Friendly reception and morning coffee and tea (complimentary) in the lobby - also daily newspapers and water. Rooms are well-equipped with umbrellas and yoga mats. Well-equipped gym with functioning equipment, but pool is seasonal only (not heated). The buffet breakfast we were served is limited (not a huge spread and no cheese). Friendly staff and good service, although it could take several calls to have your laundry delivered. Bath in my room was shallow (not really accommodating a good hot bath in winter), but is saves water and makes for an excellent slip-resistant base when you shower - 100% fine by me. Great location with many options of restaurants (for all budgets and tastes) in the area. Few hundred metres from Du Pont circle that makes for excellent jogging around it early in the morning. The lovely area of George Town is just a 20 minute brisk walk down P Street. This is a recommendable hotel and I hope to return.
