A nice, well located, 'boutique' hotel, part of the Kimpton chain, right near Dupont Circle. Nestled on quiet N Street NW, just a few steps from Dupont Circle, the metro, and Scott circle, you could easily stroll past and miss it... if not for the gold lettering on the blue awning.
Blue, the dominant theme from the tint of the doors through the lobby and into the rooms. Nice, tasteful dark blues. The room was bright with comfortable chairs, a long purple couch great for sitting and reading. The bathroom had a small ante-room with make-up table and mirror. Overall very comfortable and bright.
The staff was welcoming and thoughtful, they made ample use of my reservation and Kimpton information, despite just one other stay in their hotels, to make us welcome. Having just slipped away from the kids for a night in town, the staff made us feel very welcome.
Parked on the street to avoid the $40 a night valet, which was fine except when returning late on Saturday night. Then we had to weave past the revelers pouring out of clubs to circe the neighborhood looking for a spot.
