Hotel & location were perfect. Remember that specific room requests confirmed thru third party booking services are NOT guaranteed by a hotel. Our hotel was sild out & we had to settle for a roll away bed for the second person.
It's a Kimpton Boutique Hotel so the decor is cool. It lives up to standards set by the chain. Room was a little small. The best things for me were a mini-jambox and yoga mat in the room. The worst was that the free WIFI isn't free. There's a $17/day activity charge they add for local phone calls (really?! Who uses a phone in the room for that anymore??) & WIFI and something else bogus.
Room is recently decorated, spacious and very good. Apart from room and the good location there isn't much to the hotel.
Even just for a coffee or tea you have to pay various charges and will cost you ariund $8. Only valet parking which costs $46 per day.
Check in was fast and pleasant, and the staff were very helpful.
The rooms are clean, well decorated, and modern, while the halls are a bit like a step back in time. Not in a wholly bad way, but certainly don't match the well updated rooms.
Wifi was reasonable.
The house staff were basically invisble, and we came back to rejuvenated rooms each night.
Free nespresso in each room, and a wine fridge for water or... Wine if you wish. Free wine and cheese every night from 5-6 is a nice touch and a good way to start off before a night out or a night in. the hotel facilities on main floor are cute and welcoming for these events.
Short walking distance to Wardman Park Conference Centre and Smithsonian Zoo. Also about 10 minutes walk to Dupont Circle and access to the subway line. The hotel is on a quiet tree lined street amongst beautiful buildings. Feels separated from DC despite easy access in a few minutes.
Would definitely recommend, especially for conference goers who don't get a room at the Marriott.
The hotel was everything we needed it to be. It was clean. The hotel staff were great. My only complaint was our room was on the 5th floor, road side and we could hear everything outside quite easy. Especially the large trucks picking up garbage or making deliveries to the Walgreens on the corner. Woke us up very early every morning.
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.
