We chose Topaz because of the reviews. We agree on the great location and somewhat agree on the rooms. Good size barely adequate bathroom. The entire property is 'tired' and in real need of some TLC. We parked our car on property and most of the time received it in a reasonable amount of time except when it really was... More

Dupont Circle location can't be beaten for convenience, restaurant selection, etc. Something had gone wrong with a booking made on my behalf, but nothing fazed the check-in staff when I arrived after 10.30 pm, clinically exhausted after a seven hour flight, with a phantom reservation. A room was identified for me quickly, which was great, but it had a faulty... More

We love the Topaz Hotel! This was my third Kimpton in DC and my favorite so far. I visited for one night with my 15 year old daughter who thought it was great, too. The Dupont location is very convenient to restaurants and metro. The gentleman at the front desk ( who doubled as concierge), valet, and breakfast waiter were... More

Very clean large rooms but hotel lobby is tiny. Be prepared to deal with an extremely inquisitive staff. Upon entering hotel you will feel thier prying eyes on you all the way up to you room. They watch you through the monitors until you get off the elevator. When checking out, there will be a security guard watching what you... More

Staying at the Topaz could not have been better if not for the amazing customer service that I received while on my business trip. I was greeted at the desk By a lovely lady named Rachel (Harmony). It didn't take too long for me to be placed in my room. Asking for an additional towel was just a call away.... More

We chose this hotel because it is in a great location, and the price was right. It is just a block or two from lots of restaurants and bars on Dupont. The room was clean and modern. Breakfast buffet was not included in the room cost; that would be a nice little perk. We would stay here again.

Like all Kimpton's this is a quirky place so if you need a more "standard" kind of hotel, not this one. Upside: it's small, located within easy walking distance to Metro or just walk to the Mall. Staff is friendly and helpful. A+ to the bartender who will make sure you have a refreshing drink after a day in DC... More

Our first impression was not good but totally wrong. This was our FAVORITE place on a two week family vacation that had us in 4 hotels total. Traveling with teens is hard enough and when we arrived and our room wasn't ready, the complaining began. Desk clerk Rachel apologized, and said it would be 30 minutes. They helped unload our...

Set amongst a row or brownstones, this Kimpton Hotel, used to be the home of the late Franklin Roosevelt. The details are still visible ( such as early 1900 woodwork along the door frame). The hospitality shown by Rachel Jones and Ahmed Rawi is impressively what sets the Kimpton Hotels apart from so many other establishments. Granted this is one... More
