I stayed at the Dupont Circle Hotel for 3 nights on a business visit to Washington. I was familiar with the location, which I find excellent for restaurants, bars and a few shops, in addition to a good atmosphere. This was my first time at this hotel, and I was pleased with the general level of service and the attitude of the employees. The restaurant is good (I didn't bother going out on the first night), and reasonably priced and the bar is very busy, which is unusual for most hotels. The Gym is adequate, but a bit claustophobic, as it is located in the basement and has no windows. Whilst my room as clean, the linen was good and the bathroom was fine, it looked over into a central area, straight into a large air conditioning unit. This meant in practice you couldn't open the windows and caused me to mark the hotel down a bit.
