"Modern and comfortable hotel in the heart of a great neighborhood"
The Dupont Circle Hotel was top notch in every way. I booked through Hotwire and got a great rate. Based on previous experience I have found that you aren't always given the best room when you book through discount sites. That was probably the case here as the room I was given had what must have been the worst view possible. However, knowing that I booked at a deep discount, I am not going to knock them for that. First - location. There is not a better location in Dupont circle. The hotel is literally on the circle. I drove to DC and thankfully never needed the valet to bring my Jeep around. You can walk to more restaurants, bars and shops than you can count. Dupont circle is itself a great place to explore and the Metro station is a 3 minute walk and you can get anywhere on the train. The hotel has obviously been remodeled and well maintained. The common areas are beautiful. The bar on the main floor is not your typical hotel bar. It is absolutely hopping at night with a pretty trendy crowd. The food is very good and the prices are in line with other restaurants in the area (DC is pretty expensive.) I had a superior king room. It was a tad on the smaller side but was laid out so as not to feel at all crowded. It had one of the better beds I have had in a hotel in a long time. The linens were of very high quality. The pillows were perfect. The comforter was thick and cozy. All in all it was difficult to get out of the bed and explore the city. The bathroom was well appointed. It is shower only which was fine by me but I realize some people may want a tub. I don't usually use the toiletries provided by hotels but I did use some of the hand lotion. Everything seemed to be of high quality. The best part was probably the towels. They are over sized bath towels that are super thick and soft. I am pretty tall guy and the towel enveloped me. By far the best hotel towel I have had. There is a well stocked mini bar and a good room service menu. Just beware that the mini bar is one of those motion activated ones that charge you as soon as you move something. I took out a chocolate bar and then put it back when I saw it was dark, not milk chocolate. It showed up on my bill but the kind lady at the desk immediately reversed it when I told her what happened. Something that I loved - and I am not sure why more hotels do not spend the little bit of money for what to me is a big deal - is that they provide free bottled water! There are two bottles in the room and you can get more whenever you need it. The front desk, the bell hops and the concierge are always quick to offer you a bottle. I drink a lot of bottled water and it seems like I usually run up a tab of $30 or more during a hotel stay. I really appreciated the free water. Another thing that really impressed me was the concierge. I had forgotten my collar stays for the dress shirt I was going to wear my first night. I went down and asked the concierge where the nearest men's clothier was located. He asked me what I was looking for and when I told him what I needed he reached in his desk and pulled out a set of monogrammed collar stays. This is not an item I normally forget so I can't say that other quality hotels do not offer the same service, but I was impressed. It is one thing to ask for a toothbrush, but to have collar stays for your guests I thought was above and beyond. The only downside to me was that the parking cost almost $40 per night. I think that is probably on par with what parking costs in the area so I won't knock the hotel for that but it did add an unexpected fee to my trip. The service is impeccable. The front desk ladies were charming and helpful. The concierge, as I already stated, impressed the heck out of me. All of the doormen and bell boys were polite and helpful. I should mention the wifi. Every hotel says they offer high speed internet. We all know that is usually not the case. The wifi in the hotel is indeed fast and the connection is strong. It is available in your room and all the common areas for free. You will have no problem with internet connections here. I would say I splurge on a higher end hotel four or five times a year. Although I enjoy them I am often disappointed as I don't always feel like I get what I pay for. I honestly can't think of anything wrong with my stay at the Dupont Circle Hotel. I did book the room at a discount but I would pay full price if I was back in the area. I liked it that much.
"Favorite D.C. Hotel"
This was our 2nd stay here and we were even more pleased than the first. Can't wait to go back in July 2015 with our whole family. The rooms are small but very comfortable. The space is used perfectly so you have areas to rest, work, and relax. Love the added amenities of the heated tile floors in the bathroom and comfy comforters on the bed. The decor is sleek, trendy, modern, and stylish without being cheaply made like other boutique hotels. The bar is amazing! Love the self serve coffee in the lobby.
"Great location, but that's about it"
This prime location and well-priced property offered us a small but affordable room. We stayed on a Monday night in April for $220/night in a tiny but nice room with absolutely no view (our room looked directly into another room). The shower and toilet are in an enclosed room, but the sinks and mirror are in full view of the main room, so if you want privacy while primping, this is not a great hotel for you. The bar scene downstairs is lively and there is a parking deck ($18/night') and the internet is great. The train is very close and the hotel is stylish. Nonetheless, I can't say that there was anything worth raving about , except the location and possibly the value (although it wasn't a great bargain). If you like Dupont Circle, this Is a smart option. It was fine, but all things being equal, I'll probably try an alternative next time.
"Excellent Boutique Hotel"
Stayed here as part of a business conference. Yes, the rooms are small but so smartly decorated to use every inch, you don't feel claustrophobic. The restaurant was great for breakfast and the staff super friendly. Starbucks across the way didn't hurt either...
We sat in bar area along windows during busy event. Lively server named Kia took excellent care of us best since in DC. She arrived quickly with drinks & DC history facts we loved most. She even convinced us order food! We will definitely be back 😍
