This older building shows signs of wear but is kept clean and was found to be quiet for sleep. The elevators seem ancient and the water pressure on the 4th floor was anemic for showering - can't imagine what the 10th floor would be like. There is no fitness center and breakfast offerings are very limited - but a fine... More

The hotel is very located, a short distance from Connecticut Avenue and Dupont Circle. The staff are very helpful and want to make sure guests are havinga good time. I stayed only overnight, but everything I encountered suggested that a longer stay would be just as enjoyable.

I stayed here in the midst of a college tour with my son and found it to be a nice, decent value option in central DC, especially if you are visiting GWU. Beds were very comfortable and the rooms were clean and relatively quiet. Would stay here again.

Incredibly friendly staff and small hotel feel. Nice sized rooms for DC. Very convenient to Dupont Circle and downtown. A few small problems with these older rooms but they were addressed immediately.

The Topaz is located on a nice block a short walk from DuPont Circle. The staff could not have been friendlier. Really welcoming and friendly. The room size (with a day bed) was generous for a family with three small kids. There was some street noise one night. One knock on the room was it just need a touch of... More

We stayed for two nights, an extended family of nine with children and adults. The hotel has a good location, just by the Dupont circle, in walking distance of the White House, and only a few minutes from the subway and the Circulator bus. The rooms are big and clean, with space for dressing, comfortable beds and the bathrooms are... More

Topaz is a clean & compact hotel on a lovely, quiet street just off Dupont Circle. Our pet-free room was feather-free as well, on an upper floor that buffered us from the loud evening music & crowded bar just off the lobby. I imagine the music could be a problem for guests on lower floors, but we were fine in... More

Having stayed at several Kimpton Boutique Hotels, I was looking forward to another lovely experience. I chose the Topaz for our long stay (9 nights) because of it's good location, reasonable weekly rate, and the photos presented on their site. I did not know that this hotel has very small public spaces, no separate concierge desk, oddly configured rooms and... More

Nice hotel in a great location near DuPont circle. Comfortable rooms and the entire staff was amazingly pleasant, particularly Ahmed at the front desk. He was tremendously helpful throughout our stay. Would definitely stay at the Topaz again.

I came to DC for a meeting near Union Station and choose the Topaz because it was the only place I could get a government rate room and it was close to the DuPont Metro Station. I was very pleasantly surprised at such a lovely hotel in a very quiet (except for some construction noise in the morning) neighborhood. I... More
