Remember those old Hershey's commercials "Change is Bad"? Though I don't like Hershey's chocolate (it's a bit chalky, let's be honest), I can say this adage certainly applies to my taste in hotels. Unless staying at an AirBNB, it's more likely than not I will end up at a Marriott or Starwood resort. Well, after this Kimpton experience, you can... More

My first (but it won't be my last) visit to this charming gem. Located in the heart of the Dupont Circlearea on a quiet (for DC) street one block off of Connecticut Avenue and a block south of Dupont Circle. While the public areas are a bit old, it is brightly colored (you gotta love purple) and lighted. The plus... More

I had a very large nice room at the Topaz. The service was great as it usually is at Kimptons. The only problem while there was that one day the electronic key maker was not working so staff has to walk you to your room. It was a bit of an annoyance but it wasn't their fault and they did... More

Had an absolutely amazing stay here. From Rick the Bartender to Ahmed the bellhop. The staff, the service, was everything I have come to expect from the Kimpton brand. But the icing on the cake was from Andre, the front desk manager and Markus, the desk clerk. We were in town for our 4th wedding anniversary. These guys surprised us... More

Enjoyed the great location to restaurants and entertainment on Dupont Circle. Short walk to White House and Smithsonian, wonderful and very helpful staff. I had forgotten to click the 1.00 breakfast box and Ritchie gave me a coupon. Great advise on where to go and what to do and always had a smile on his face. Love the Kimpton family!

Within walking distance to White House or easy bus/train transportation. Nice neighborhood and friendly staff. Rooms were clean and quiet - no hall noise. Wonderful places to eat nearby. A real winner in D.C.

I have stayed here twice even though I live in the Washington, DC, area. The first time was about ten years ago, and after my recent Thanksgiving night stay, I can't believe I waited this long to stay again – it was a simply wonderful experience. My room was spacious and well decorated. I thought that the staff members I... More

If you understand Kimpton properties, you already know you will have a bathrobe, a yoga mat, unique furnishings and a $10 credit on the mini-bar, (sign up to be a rewards member for that!), .. oh, and the coffee hour in the morning and the Happy Hour at 5pm... If you didn;t know that, Google Kimpton and come out of... More

Had a great stay at the Topaz. We had a good sized room which was very quiet. The hotel is well located, being close enough to the White House, shops and museums, but is not too big, making for an intimate atmosphere. We received a warm welcome from the friendly staff upon arrival and were invited to a free wine... More

Large room that was decorated well and had a very good feel. Huge bed that was pretty comfortable. Nice quiet location within easy reach of the White House, restaurants and night life. It was all really good but was let down by the following: Hotel is a converted apartment building that has some very ageing aspects. The lifts must be... More
