We stayed at this hotel for 1 night in February. We found a great rate (which included a good breakfast) and were therefore surprised when we found our room to be almost like a suite. It was very roomy, with a comfortable bed and very cool decor. They also supplied very cool animal print robes, which matched the room's ambience.... More

I stayed at this hotel last November 2008 - this hotel has the worst, most inconsistent, service I've ever received. The staff were not knowledgeable and didn't understand the concept of customer service. There were a couple of adequately trained staff but most were poorly trained - they did not address problems promptly and follow-through to ensure the problem had... More

Thank you for your comment. There was a mis-understanding regarding the babysitting services that our hotel can recommend. We have since re-vamped the way the babysitting recommendation is presented to make it easier for our staff to explain and more seamless to carry out. More

Was staying a few nights in DC for interviews and was looking for a decent hotel that wasn't too pricey. I made a great choice with this hotel. For what you pay you certainly get a lot of bang for the buck. But that doesn't mean there weren't a few drawbacks. I'll start with the good: Room was huge! Clean.... More

We stayed here for one night as a getaway for my wife's birthday. It's very close to Dupont Circle, and Komi Restaurant, where we went for dinner. The rooms are very nice, and it was good and quiet, which was important to us. The bathrooms are small and could use some upgrading, but didn't put too much of a damper... More

I stayed at the Topaz about a year and a half ago but recently visited a guest that was staying there on business. One thing I would like to add about the hotel is it's great cozy and friendly bar. The bar seems to be a magnet for locals. Very intimate, with it's lighting and the staff was excellent. Even... More

I booked 3 rooms for 3 nights for a family meet-up in D.C. last week. We read good things about the Topaz here on TA, and we got a good rate (about $110/night, bottom line). The biggest plus for this place was the amazing staff: they were warm, knowledgeable, helpful...really amazing, to a person - bartenders, front desk, housekeeping, etc...just... More

I stayed here for four nights on a business trip. It is a good choice for a medium priced boutique hotel. Front desk was efficient and always friendly. The rooms are large for a boutique hotel. The bathroom, while small, is fine for one person - families might find it too small. Room and bathroom were clean. Separate work area... More

Customer service at this hotel was incredible - from the front desk to housekeeping - everyone is friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious and the layout flows well. The beds are luxuriously soft yet firm enough for a good night's sleep after a full day of sightseeing. One of our favorite amenities was the electric tea kettle in the... More

This hotel is very nice. The rooms are spacious and clean. The decor is like something out of "Cat in the Hat" but this gave the room a charming look. The metro station is about three blocks away. The white house is about one mile away. I never ate here but there is another hotel nearby with a restaurant and... More

Horrible service. The hotel obviously puts all their efforts in to cutesy things like "mood rocks" left on your pillow, at the cost of training their staff. From the front desk clerk, to the waitstaff, to the manager, worst service ever.

We have discussed with the guest personally and resolved the issue, which arose out of a misunderstanding. The General Manager promptly began follow-up with guest still on property. While Topaz invests in items such a Zen river stones and herbal energy drinks to embellish on our story of well-being, all of our staff strive to create a personal experience for... More
