"Fantastic Boutique Hotel in the Heart of Dupont Circle"
Stayed in DC for a quick weekend jaunt. The hotel is just the right size (not too big and not too small)--which is my typical goto. It's the only hotel on DuPont Circle far as I'm aware. Conveniently located across the metro stop allowing you easy access to anywhere in DC you want to go. But you should walk and explore the surrounding neighborhood, and you'll discover some really fantastic gems (cafes, watering holes, shops, historic buildings) and extremely friendly locals. Oh and the shopping on M street is a quick 20minute walk, for those who like their wares fancy schmancy. The hotel--I avoid the large, gargantuan megachains because I want a more intimate, and personal experience. You'll definitely get that here. There's much to be said about understated elegance--hard to pull off and difficult to replicate, but the hotel and its staff pulls it off with aplomb. It won't always be perfect, but the staff more than makes up for any shortcomings. Rooms are nicely sized for the area. The heated marble bathroom floors are a surprising delight! Some of the room decor (carpeting) and hotel bar furniture (swivel chairs) are incongruous, but these are small quibbles. The shrewd owners are in the midst of some continual modest updates--so I hope these design/decor asthetics will be updated as well. The amenities--gym looks well equipped though I didn't stay long enough to make full use (I'm on vacation, okay'). The hotel restaurant serves really good, local and sustainable dishes. The bar (Bar DuPont) is spectacular--the open space with floor to ceiling glass front looking onto DuPont Circle and their outside terrace dining area are gorgeous. It is great for people watching and meeting up with friends. It gets packed most nights and especially on the weekends, so bring your patience. You'll be rewarded with some very delicious hand crafted cocktails. Oh and free, fast reliable wired/wireless internet--I don't understand why this isn't standard across the industry (ahem..Marriott, Starwood, Hilton, Hyatt, Omni, Four Seasons, Ritz Carlton's of the world). And a personal thank you to the Hotel Manager Wil....charming and affable as any Irishmen I've met. You may see him about the hotel...you'll recognize he has a striking resemblance to Seth McFarland (aka Family Guy)...Nyyeheheheh ;-D
"Great hotel and location"
The experience did not start out good at all....however the staff did everything to make it right immediately. With that being said I was impressed with the effort the staff made to make our stay a great one and they did. The location can not be beat, close to shops, resturants but most important the metro. The rooms were very nice and comfortable. I did read reviews prior ro booking and there was warning of the rooms being noisy from street noise so I do recommend a higher floor room. We did hear noise from the band the first night (polka music until 1 am) but it was nothing that would make us not stay here again. The staff was very friendly and always called us by name. We did have breakfast a the resturant and it was very good. First class hotel.
"Wonderful weekend stay"
We were in DC to visit our daughter who lives in Adams Morgan and this hotel seemed to be nicely located. We had a wonderful stay from start to finish (almost, see below). Check-in was quick and easy, the room was fantastic (with the exception of the not-so-private commode, which other reviewers have mentioned) and the amenities were great. We stayed on Level 9, which was excellent, and enjoyed a free gin and tonic on our first night. The location is PERFECT and we enjoyed nearby restaurants and even walked to the white house on Saturday morning -- wonderful. The only hitch was the valet service that the hotel seems to subcontract: They're nice guess but...really, profoundly incompetent. We waited 30 minutes to drive off on Sunday morning because they couldn't communicate well over the walkie-talkie and brought us the wrong car TWICE! So allow more time when you're ready to leave (no way to call ahead).
"Loved our stay - almost perfect"
We stayed 8 nights at the Dupont Circle and loved so many aspects of our stay - let's do those first. The decor and ambiance are modern and sleek, with clean lines and nice details without being fussy and the hotel is clean (very important to me) and well-maintained. Staff - from the doormen, to reception/front desk, concierge, and restaurant/bar are very friendly and professional, attending to our needs and offering assistance when appropriate (umbrella during the rain, water bottle on our trip to the airport, directions, dining recommendations....). Every morning, we were greeted with smiling "Good Mornings" from everyone we encountered - a nice start to the day! The rooms are comfortable and well-appointed, with nice linens, furniture and decor. We have only two comments about things that weren't perfect or were troublesome. 1) Our first room, while nice, had a design issue with the shower that hadn't been addressed yet. While we liked the design aesthetic of the shower (clean lines, minimalist, nice hardware), water flooded the area just outside the shower (toilet area), which required mopping up with towels every time you showered. Apparently, this is a known issue and when we brought it to the attention of the front desk, they immediately agreed to change our room to one where this issue had been resolved. 2) a more general issue is that street noise can often be quite loud and disruptive to a good night's sleep. This is especially true for rooms on the side of the building where the bar is located. Once we changed rooms,we didn't have to deal with as much noise but because DuPont Circle is so widely used and popular, there is a lot of traffic noise, and noise from partiers out and around the circle. Aside from those two issues, we'd stay here again and often. The hotel is well-located to surrounding areas and sights, has a great bar and restaurant, and has easy access to Metro and lots of restaurants and bars and shops. All in all, I'd recommend it!
"Nice Modern Hotel"
The hotel is in a great location for restaurants and nightlife in D.C. The hotel bar has a beautiful view of Dupont Circle and seem filled in the evening with locals as well as hotel guests. The hotel had a nice modern decor in the lobby as well as the rooms. We stayed in one of the rooms on the inside so there was little street noise, but noise from the large industrial A/C units which were located on roofs below us. The room we got was nicely furnished in a modern style but small, which seems standard for older buildings. The hotel seems to be pet friendly as we heard dogs barking in neighbors rooms. The service was good, as expected for upscale hotel but not exceptional. There is a nice coffee bar in the lobby in morning and the hotel restaurant Cafe DuPont is available and serves good food. Overall I liked the hotel and would stay there again, but personally prefer some of other hotels in D.C. area.
