Lobby was a little dated, but the location was incredible! We loved how close it was to the Metro and how many things we found within walking distance. The room was definitely small, but it was comfy and clean and what we needed. A few things to point out: the bathroom door was made of this opaque glass. While that's... More

Great location, within walking distance to many places: Dupont Circle, restaurants, Metro station, walking to the White House in the morning as well. It is my understanding that this is under new ownership and I have stayed at other properties owned by Kimpton so when I was searching and couldn't get into where I had stayed before I decided to...

Could have been 5 stars but even the comfort inn has better breakfast. Very unexpected for such an expensive hotel. Room was nice. Did NOT appreciate having to sign up for your loyalty program just to get wifi. That's ok, I gave you a bunch of fake information.

The hotel was recently remodeled so it's crisp and clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. Everyone welcomes you back when you step onto the property. We found the valet and bellhops to be extremely helpful. We had a nice sized king room, with comfortable bed. A metro stop and plenty of restaurants are near. The only down side to... More

We stayed for six nights at the Carlyle Dupont Circle, while visiting Washington for a business and tourism. The hotel is well located, about five - ten minutes walk from the Dupont Circle metro station. The staff were friendly, the room - though not very large - was well appointed, and the daily complimentary wine hour was an expected treat,... More

Friendly and responsive staff. We told them that we were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary and they gifted us with a small bottle of champagne and cookies along with a personal note. We were pleasantly surprised by the size of the room. We were traveling with our 2 kids and there was plenty of room. The beds were super comfortable... More

Due to the mixed reviews, I was apprehensive after making our reservation. We booked a double w queen beds room for my DH & two kids (18 & 23). As our trip was approaching I continued to read every new review. A week before arriving I called the Hotel directly to inquire about some of the complaints. I.E. hotel &... More
