“Very Comfortable and Convenient”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

I stayed at the DuPont Circle Hotel during a conference. The room was decent size, comfortable and very nice. It was equipped with a chaise, mini-bar, wifi, sound dock, plenty of outlets, complimentary water, over-sized bath towels (no wash cloths, though), a heated tile floor in the bath area and down pillows. The television was regular cable, not the usual hotel fare that requires that you move through a few promo channels every time you turn it on. The room featured an open floor plan with the sink area, but the shower features a sliding glass enclosure and the WC was separated with a glass door.

The lobby was a bit cramped with all the attendees, but very nicely decorated. The function rooms were more than adequate. The hotel bar was a good size and very lively for a Wednesday night. As well, the hotel is very convenient to area restaurants and a short cab ride to most anywhere in downtown Washington. It was also just off the subway line from the airport, saving the hassle of traffic.

One drawback - the room was not ready at 11am when we arrived, so we had to change in a restroom to get ready for the conference. There is no locker room or other facility for changing under the circumstances.

The Dupont Circle Hotel exceeded my expectations from the first greeting to the last good bye. The hotel's staff were gracious and helpful. My room was excellent, comfortable, functional and I could focus on business meetings with no worries. Well done! The location, close to major offices and restaurants is perfect location for business meetings for lunch or coffee.

Enjoyed our stay here at the dupont. Room was very comfortable and the service team was extremely nice and very helpful. Cafe dupont has lovely spreads as well. Only thing that would've been nice is an in-room coffee machine or something to store our perishables.

Good:
* Excellent location directly on Dupont Circle. Close to metro station. Near several restaurants, cafes, bars, and bookshop (Kramers Books).
* Trendy vibe throughout hotel.
* Spotlessly clean, unobtrusive and friendly cleaning staff.
* Helpful front desk staff.

Needs improvement:
* Room service pricing lacks transparency. There's the food price, plus a delivery charge, plus a service charge, plus taxes, plus a tip. A $13 burger quickly becomes $25.
* I requested a quiet room not facing the street. I got it, but the massive air vents located behind the hotel were almost as bad for noise!

7 of us went to DC and saw museums for 5 days. Most were free and the National Gallery and Newseum are world-class. We took the metro everywhere, which can be tough to figure out, but just go with purchasing their "smart card" and re-load it when necessary. We stayed at Dupont Circle which is in a lovely area; it met all our different tastes. Washington was a wonderful way to spend part of March Break. The hotel staff was wonderful and so was the gym in the hotel basement. The bed gave me the best sleep I've had in years.

I must say I was impressed and loved this place. The staff was nice, the hotel was centrally located to everything. I had no complaints. They were able to get champagne and chocolate covered strawberries up to our room in the time it took to get from DCA to the hotel. (hubbies bday surprise). The cafe was a bit a crowded for happy hour but we did get there about 45 minutes after it began, but the restaurant on the other side was pretty reasonable. All in all I would stay again and definitely here. I loved that they had a computer specifically for boarding passes and concierge was more than accommodating only we didnt need them much . We just simply walked and explored and asked people who appeared to be locals.

Room Tip: Tip...Get out and walk around before eating at the hotel even though it is quite tasty. Btw...we sta...

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights, absolutely top customer services, our room wasn't too big still enough comfortable for what we needed. We were able to reach all major city sightseeing on foot! Not too expensive as well, highly recommended!
