Dupont Circle is a very cute neighborhood with lots of restaurants (and U street is a short walk away). For sightseeing in DC, bikes are really the way to go. Monuments can be central in an area, but having a bike really allows you to see so much more in a quicker time frame. Carlyle has free loaner bikes! On... More

This was a comfortable place to stay, in a good location (a bit out of downtown, but near lots of good food, bars etc., though little noise round hotel). Would happily stay again if price was competitive. Decent size room and comfy bed, though a little dark, shower took time to get to the right temperature, and air con was... More

I can't give the Carlyle Dupont Circle a 5 star rating, but if I could give 4.5 I would. 5 star hotels generally offer elegance and luxury I didn't need or want to pay for, but we definitely got a high value for the money we did pay to stay two nights in Dupont Circle. The lobby was clean and... More

Friendly, fashionable botique hotel in quiet neighborhood only a few minutes walk from both Dupont Circle and busy Adams Morgan areas. Red line metro 8 minutes walk. Excellent on-site restaurant and lounge. Pet friendly.

Excellent service. The front desk clerks were amazingly friendly and helpful. Thanks Courtney for helping us with everything. The room was very nice and modern. A little hard to find and parking should be free for guests. Other than that, awesome!!

I stayed for two nights midweek. Check-in was efficient and very friendly. The clerk explained how I could receive free internet on my entire stay by signing up for Kimpton's reward program. Much appreciated. I didn't have a car, but note that overnight parking is $42/night if you drive there. My check-in person told me they had "a lovely large... More

Had no idea what to expect, actually a little bit nervous since the rate was so low compared to most hotels in the area, BUT we were very, very pleasantly surprised. First class hotel, service was excellent, room was great, even the semi see through glass door to the bathroom, and so many nice toiletries. Will definitely stay there again.

This booking was a last minute stay. It was part of my last me stay in DC. The hotel was excellent. The young lady at the front desk "Charlotte / Carloyn", was great. Her customer service was just what you should always get when checking in. The room was simply prefect. I'm now a huge fan of the Kimpton Brand.

Everyone was very helpful and professional; the valet, the bellman, the front desk, who remembered not only my name but my dog's. The room was spacious, immaculate, and well appointed. The bathroom was luxurious, the kitchen had everything you could need including a Keurig. The bed was positively heaven. I would stay there again in a heartbeat, really a completely... More
