"A great stay."
I stayed at this property several years ago and loved it. When I was booking my current stay, I couldn't afford the rack rate here, but luckily got a discounted rate through Hotwire. I was able to check in a bit early. Though the room didn't have much of a view because it was on the side facing the other wing of the building, it was likely quieter than a room on the street side. The room was very nice -- it wasn't a crappy room like some hotels give to Hotwire or Priceline customers. Although it's not a huge room, it was plenty large and we didn't feel cramped at all. The TV! is flat screen and there is also a nice radio, which was playing when I entered the room. The bath towels are very large and soft. Some reviewers have complained about shower water getting on the bathroom floor, but it seems they have resolved this issue by installing a sliding curtain. There was an iron and a hair dryer in the room. Coffee is provided in the lobby in the morning. Two free water bottles are provided daily in the room. Be sure to check the mini-bar prices before removing anything -- there is a CVS on the other side of DuPont Circle and you are probably better off getting snacks there. Parking is a bit pricey ($38 valet only) but there appeared to be some parking garages nearby. Unless you need to travel outside of the city, you really don't need a car anyway since the red-line metro station entrance is just on the other side of the circle. All of the staff members were very friendly and they even allowed us to extend our check-out time by one hour. I would definitely stay here again provided I could get the discounted price. With the service and amenities provided, it would still be worthwhile at the rack rate, but I'm somewhat budget conscious, so I can normally deal with a bit less luxury at a lower price point. Being able to stay here at lower cost made me feel like a got a bargain!
There are tons of things I would fix here. Scratched elevators, odd and small lobby, dark unwelcoming gym, scratched paint everywhere, noise from AC handlers on next door building and small rooms. We were here for a wedding so received a good rate. Not sure how I'd like it I was paying rack price. But it's fine. And the people are great; lots of smiles and warm hearts. DC hotels are expensive!
"Central Location, great concierge"
I spent 3 nights here on a business trip and can't fault the Dupont Circle for location, friendliness and service. I had a couple of minor issues (a slow to empty bathroom sink and on another day the need of a sewing kit to repair a hem) and on both occasions the concierge was immediately able to help. The free tea and coffee in the lobby each morning was a nice, welcome touch. A tip - if you're working out in the gym there's fresh fruit down there too. Housekeeping was efficient and rooms were clean. My room was a good size and unlike many hotels where I've stayed, the WiFi was strong and consistent throughout the building. Although the air conditioning was very efficient, I would have preferred to have been able to open the window for ventilation in my room and as a woman, I really missed having a full-length mirror. The mirror over the sink is very well-lit for make-up though. In summary, a great hotel, 15 minute walk to the White House, 3 minute walk to the Metro and 15 minute stroll to the lovely architecture of Georgetown. Front desk, concierge, porters and housekeeping staff are their greatest asset. I would stay again.
I stayed here my birthday weekend and was very pleased with how nice the hotel was. The room was very clean and comfortable. The shower was nice but there was not bathtub :( We had brunch at the restaurant and both the food and the service were very good. It had a decent gym and the staff was nice. The location was perfect for restaurants, nightlife, and exploring D.C. My only qualm with the place was that a bottle of wine went missing from our belongings when we had to store our luggage for a couple hours. It was most likely an honest mistake (we had a lot of luggage) and I was pleased overall.
"Excellent location, service and facilities!"
Stayed there while attending a conference in mid-August. I thought the place was really great. The personnel were super helpful, whether they were giving directions or ordering a taxi for me. The room was very modern and spacious. Great location. Great everything!
