We recently had a two night stay at the Topaz. This was our first time at this Kimpton property and we were very pleased with both the hotel and the central location near Dupont Circle. The staff are extremely friendly and professional. Rick will take great care of you at happy hour and Donte makes sure everything runs perfectly.
The hotel retains its old style charm but has been completely renovated and updated. We had a huge room with plenty of space to spread out. As another review mentioned the separate vanity area was a real plus. The hotel is in a mixed residential/business neighborhood so there is no traffic noise and even though you are very close to the heart of the Dupont Circle shopping area you really feel like you are away from the hustle and bustle.
We will definitely stay at this hotel again.
