“The staff and hotel are totally awesome--EXTREMELY TOP-NOTCH!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2011

My stay at the Topaz hotel was PHENOMENAL! The staff is incomparable to any that I've ever come across, and the red carpet is truly rolled out for visitors--the staff show guests their appreciation in myriad ways from hosting complimentary wine receptions to going above and beyond the call of duty for anything you might need while there, even if it's not something they specialize in. They even check in with you BEFORE you have to call them to see if there's anything they can do to make you more comfortable or your stay more accomodating. The hotel was impeccably clean, and there are several nearby attractions from restaurants to shopping to nightlife. I HIGHLY recommend this hotel if you are visiting DC or even looking to engage in a little staycation. You certainly will not be disappointed! I plan on going back as soon as possible!

We spent Labor Day weekend at the Topaz. Everything was just wonderful. We will return ASAP. Not because of their location, which is excellent. Not because of the rooms, which were very very comfortable. But, because of the staff, who could not have been friendlier or more helpful. Combining the excellence of the staff with the location and great rooms results in a perfect vacation.

Stayed one night at the beginning of my vacation, before getting BWI flight the next day. Right up there with the other Kimptons I've stayed in. They upgraded me to a "motion" suite -- very big room with separate sitting area, exercycle, and "jeannie bottle" like sitting area with a curtain enclosure. Excellent location, two blocks south of Dupont Circle -- when driving in, be sure to map it in advance; the one-way streets make it a bit challenging to drive to. Breakfast was skimpy. Excellent service.

We stayed at the Topaz for two nights and it was wonderful. The staff was so genuinely friendly and helpful and attentive. We would absolutely stay there again.

This hotel was exceptional. The staff was helpful and the service was great. All of the staff was warm and friendly and went out of their way to offer recommendations. In addition, we brought our dog and they were very attentive to his needs. I will be staying here from now on when visiting.

My girlfriend and I just returned from a 3 day stay at the Topaz and we couldn't have been happier with the property. Gorgeous rooms, wonderful amenities, and a very attentive, focused, and accommodating staff all helped create a delightful atmosphere for the property that really helped us enjoy Washington to the fullest. Hurricane Irene was passing through the area during our stay and the hotel seemed well-prepared - a flyer was slipped under our door with emergency information should it be needed, and Kelly, who works at the front desk, even gave us glow sticks and "hurricane candy" upon our return one night! All in all a great place - very accessible by walking and Metro as well. Would definitely recommend and stay again.

The location was good for my family. We ate dinner at Morton's down the street and took the Metro to the Capitol. I did not like the $35/day to park our car. Our wait for check in was a bit long but they quickly compensated for it with complementary breakfast the next morning. The whole lobby and breakfast area was tiny and a bit chaotic due to extensive renovations. The room was a good size and the decor was eclectic & chic. My greatest concern was the obvious blood stain on the mattress cover under the fitted sheet...yes; I inspect the mattresses at every hotel I stay at. This was downright nasty - especially since the half-dollar sized brown-red stain should have been clearly obvious to anyone changing the bed! I called the front desk and they immediately sent someone to change it. That someone was a maintenance man who spoke no English or Spanish apparently. He said "no more covers - housekeeping gone for the night" (I think). He then gave us about 5 flat sheets that we tucked in over the mattress under the fitted sheet. Though the rest of the two night stay was enjoyable, including the kids free gifts, that one gross moment upon our arrival was unacceptable and with many other places to stay in the DC area we will not be back here.
