"Great hotel - beware of bar"
We are firm believers in reviews. We base a lot of our travel and dining decisions, including our recent stay at Dupont Circle Hotel, on reviews from Yelp and Expedia. Because of this, we try to always provide helpful, honest reviews after we have either stayed or dined at a named location.
We stayed at Dupont Circle Hotel August 18-20. We arrived at about 10:30 am. There was a bit of a line at the front desk, but the two behind the counter were working efficiently and quickly and soon it was our turn. We assumed because of the time we would just give our name and drop off our bags. To our pleasant surprise, we were able to get straight in to our room. It's always a mega bonus when you can get an unexpected early check in.
When we got up to our room, on the 5th floor, we were beyond satisfied. The room was very spacious. The decor was updated and attractive. The bathroom had plenty of counter space and the shower was roomy as well. Everything was clean and tidy and we instantly knew we made the right choice for our stay.
We dropped our bags and headed out to enjoy DC.
