5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2011

It is only half a block to the Dupont Circle Metro station. I stayed in the "Nook" and LOVED it! The entire house is decorated charmingly, with seasonal touches, and the breakfast is sumptuous. In the evening they put out snacks, which is a very nice and welcoming touch.

Room Tip: If you're travelling solo, go for the Nook.

The Inn at Dupont Circle came to my attention because of the good price. And it's a couple blocks to the metro, further helping my budget! I was wonderfully surprised by the quirks - you're in a former residence, so every room is different - interesting, but still as clean and well-stocked as a chain hotel. The complimentary breakfast was the real treat - eggs cooked to order, cereals, fruit salad, a lovely buffet. The one thing that threw me is the place is not attended by staff 24/7 - but it turned out to not be a problem. I felt safe and secure. I can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: Try bilevel room behind kitchen!

If you appreciate the sterile anonymous atmosphere of a large hotel, then this is not for you. The Inn is old and with its age comes the warmth and charm of an urban bed & breakfast. The rooms are nicely decorated and the staff is friendly, attentive, and helpful. The dining area has refreshments all day and a hot breakfast is individually prepared to your order by a chef/innkeeper who takes care and pride in her work. Free wifi is easily accessible but if you're here on business, then you might not fully enjoy the ambiance. As others have stated, the location cannot be beat. For the price the Inn at Dupont Circle is a bargain. I wish I could have stayed longer and I will return.

Room Tip: Park your car across the street and forget about .

We stayed at the Inn for 4 days and it was fabulous. We never went away from breakfast hungry. Wonderful fresh baked bread every morning that made its' way up stairs to great us. Delectable desserts that stayed on the table all evening. Perfect for a late snack when getting in from the theater. The Kennedy Center has a shuttle that takes you to a Metro stop where you can ride to within a half block of the Inn. It is so convenient to go into DC on the Metro. Breakfast each morning has just about everything to please all ages in the group. We truly felt like we were in our own home. There is a CVS store across the street so you don't have to pack all those toiletries.

The inn is located away from the capitol and right next to the metro station to the capitol. The area is alive, vibrant, with museums, embassy row, restaurants and more. The operators of the Inn are friendly and very entertaining.

We stayed at the Inn at Dupont Circle for three nights in mid April. The inn is well located, within an easy walking distance to most of the attractions in the city and very close to the subway. We had a lovely room on the first floor with our own bathroom. The inn is old and so if you want slick, sleek decorations and furnishings this is not the place for you. The king-sized bed was huge and extremely comfortable and the shower, although temperamental, was adequate. Breakfast was okay. There was plenty of food but not a huge selection – understandable when you might only be catering for 8 – 12 guests.
On our second morning the ceiling above our bed started to drip (obviously a burst pipe somewhere). The staff called a plumber straight away and while we were out for the day they rearranged the furniture so that we were out of harm’s way if it should happen again (it didn’t). On the day that we left I had an “itchy rash” on my arm that later came up in lumps. After consulting a doctor he confirmed that they were bed-bug bites and unfortunately the only place I could have been bitten was at the Inn. Luckily there were only 26 bites but after four weeks they are still visible. My partner, who shared the room with me, was not bitten at all. I have been told that there are bed-bugs in lots of different accommodation in the US and unfortunately it is pretty likely that you will encounter them somewhere sooner or later.
All in all the Inn is a lovely place to stay. The location is great, the food is okay and the staff are lovely.

Really enjoyed staying here. Had a bedroom without ensuite at the top of a creaky staircase but wouldn't swap this place with great character and history for a modern rooms that all look the same. Very homely feel and superb breakfast cooked to your requirements. Excellent location. Thought it was fairly pricey but so were all the other hotels in the area so as things go I guess it was fair. Would go back.
