“Modern, clean & location is great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

Great place to stay - not too expensive even after paying valet parking fee. Will stay again next time visiting DC. I found it odd the shower had no door, but the guest isn't exactly responsible for clean up. My girlfriend told me it was a fashion statement of sorts; I'm not exactly in the loop when it comes to the latest trends. Staff was extremely helpful and accommodating!

I always stay here when I travel for work. The rooms are nice and trendy. Its centrally located and the room service is always great. The showers dont have doors which I always wonder why since the water goes all over the bathroom but that is not a big deal! The staff is always super nice and accomodating! There is a cool bar downstairs too.

Three night escape over Veteran's Day. We were checked in my Siobhan (sorry if I spelled her name wrong) from Ireland. When she looked for our reservation she could not immediately locate it. A few minutes later we were checked in with an upgrade. The service from all was friendly and efficient during our stay.
The room was small but with a very comfortable bed. WiFi was very slow. I agree with others who didn't appreciate the lack of privacy in the bathroom. All hotels now seem to put in the large flat sinks with about 2" from bottom to rim. Why? I find them sloppy! Somehow though I really loved the room and the location of it. We could sit and view the planes flying in and out of the city and watched the moon rise one evening.
This room would not be great for a family. Perfect for one or two.
The rate was very fair and the location can't be beat. We will be back sometime.

We only stayed here one night and it was a memorable one. Not only is the staff friendly and accommodating, but this lovely hotel exceeded our expectations. As the weather was very chilly, we spent a lot of time in our cozy room with HDTV, and a gorgeous view of Dupont Circle. The major bonus we weren't expecting - the bathroom had heated floors! This hotel is blessedly dog-friendly and we had our chihuahua with us. Dudley had a great time here too, and even enjoyed meeting a certain celebrity's doggy.
We had only one complaint, and that was that someone had set the iPod radio alarm to go off loudly at 5 am, so we sat bolt upright in bed! What a shock. But when we mentioned to the staff so they could have the maid reset the alarm, they offered us breakfast vouchers as compensation. That, we were also not expecting! Many hotels we've stayed out might not even blink an eye at such a report and only grunt out an apology. But Dupont Circle Hotel made the effort to make amends, and boy was their breakfast yummy! Be sure to try the restaurant in the hotel, you won't be disappointed! Finally, we were made to feel very much at home as the General Manager even came to speak with us and all members of staff were incredibly friendly. We will be sure to book here again next time we're in DC!

Absolutely loved this hotel. Our room was SUPER comfortable and well-appointed, the free WiFi was very much appreciated, and the staff just couldn't have been nicer. The hotel has a very intimate, Euro-chic style that just really fits in its hyper-cool Dupont Circle neighborhood. And the hotel's bar is the absolute perfect place to end a crazy DC day. And our room's bathroom? We were already planning a remodel of our master bath at our home and we have now tried out the prototype! (Seriously--took dozens of pics...hope you don't mind us stealing your design, hotel folks!!) We will DEFINTELY be back!

Good location, good value, good service, friendly and helpful staff. Only big minus for me was the bad WiFi connection in our room. One of the main reasons why I choice this hotel was the Free WiFi that they are offering. But the connection in our room was very bad. It was not possible to use it. In the lobby it was working fine. Maybe it was because we were on the 8th floor. BIG Plus is the free bottle water you get every day in your room. Just across the hotel is Starbucks and the Metro is at the other side of the square. I will stay in the hotel again if I am sure that the free WiFi will work like it has to work.

Room Tip: We asked for a High Floor room but the WiFi was not working good. Maybe the lower floor rooms have b...

Loved our weekend stay at the DuPont Circle Hotel. We had a small but elegant room on an upper floor with an entire wall of windows. (Window treatment was cool -- louvered wooden shutters!). Terrific bed with big down pillows and excellent bedside lighting for readers like us. Lovely bathroom with marble tile and those thick, rough, bright white towels like you get in a top spa. Fabulous staff everywhere we turned. The bar is a popular spot and so crowded we couldn't get in but we grabbed some comfortable seats in the spacious lobby and they served us there. Be sure to walk up CT Ave for amazing coffee at Dolcezza and ice cream at Larry's. And don't miss the farmer's market on Sunday -- just around the corner from the hotel.

Room Tip: Upper floors are quieter. DuPont circle is a busy place.
