We spent a weekend in Washington sightseeing and generally having a good time. The Dupont Circle Hotel is right in the heart of everything. Great restaurants in walking distance all around, beautiful neighborhoods, Embassy Row and just a few blocks up from the White House.The hotel staff were very polite, engaging and helpful. The hotel itself was very upscale and modern. Comfortable bed, reading lights, huge thick towels, in-room bar refridge. We loved our room with the shuttered windows. Great bar scene and outdoor cafe for a drink. All was just about perfect.
This hotel was tucked away on a quiet block in the Dupont Circle area. It was wonderful to be able to walk to so many restaurants, the metro, exercise classes, etc. The staff were super friendly and the room was very stylish. I was disappointed that the restaurant was closed during my stay. For me, this is one of the main perks of staying at a Kimpton hotel. My room was huge! But there were details that made me a little hesitant to give a higher rating. The sink was blocked, so when I washed my face at night, the sink stayed full of water for quite some time - it also smelled mildewy. On my second night there, I noticed ants on the floor! I've never seen ants in a hotel before, and I was on the 7th floor! Also some of the towels in the bathroom had slight stains on them - undermining the confidence in how clean the rest of the room was. But despite all that, I would likely stay here again because of the location, staff and reasonable rates.
The hotel is in a great location. It has great coffee and it's very easy to get quickly and hop on the Metro to anywhere. The Farmers Market is a block away on the weekends and has wonderful flowers, fresh fruit and vegetables, and baked goods.
I was very pleased with the staff. They were attentive to us while there. I was not pleased with the parking fee( 39.00), since
I arrived very late and left early.
The room was clean and we slept well.
Got assigned a room right by the service elevator. When it ran it would shake our closet. Didn't notice it after about 10pm and we weren't woken by it. Other than that it was a nice hotel in a great location close to shopping and the embassy district. Nothing fancy about it but it was fine for a single night.
Mid-rises and mansions grace the leafy streets of Dupont Circle, where independent cafes and shops thrive. With a number of gay bars and businesses, this area is DC’s main gay neighborhood. Foreign flags fly high on Embassy Row, the stretch of Massachusetts Avenue from the Circle to the National Zoo and National Cathedral. At night, locals head north to Adams Morgan for drinks and live music.
