“A port of call”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

I had a fantastic weekend staying at this hotel. Great atmosphere, and central to most places of interest. The accommodation was good, staff polite, and the bar lively. But don't ask the bar staff for a 'port', it seemed to confused the waitress who didn't know it was.

I've stayed here a few times on business and always enjoy the hotel. The rooms are always clean, beds are conforrtable, the gym has enough machines to accomodate several people at one time and the staff is always friendly and helpful. I would choose this hotel for both peronal and biz travel.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the circle have more road noise but that's to be expected. For a quieter room, stay...

We recently had a great dinner and amazing hospitality at the Dupont Circle Hotel. We were hosting Australian wine industry VIPs and Heidi took great care of us at the restaurant, and then at level 9. Thank you so much for creating such a personal and friendly experience for these guests. I'll definitely send more of our winemaker & wine industry VIPs your way!

A group of girlfriends and I stayed in one of the 9th floor penthouse suites as well as 2 rooms on the 8th floor for a bachelorette party last weekend. From planning, checking in, the hospitality we received while there, to checking out our stay was seamless and worry free. Cole, Heidi, the front desk management and staff could not have been more helpful, friendly and considerate. This is the 2nd time I have stayed in this hotel and hope to be lucky enough to return again sooner than later. The 9th floor was amazing (especially the hospitality lounge and happy hour) and the view on our balcony was gorgeous.

Fabulous location close to good eateries and about a 20 minute walk to the White House. Serves great coffee in the morning - free of charge, staff are friendly and helpful. Wifi in the rooms is poor, however great in the lobby. Eye masks are supplied in the rooms for guests and are needed.

I was lucky enough to stay at the Dupont Circle Hotel this past weekend and take advantage of one of their 9th floor Penthouse suites. I have never experienced such great hospitality in the DC area before. I was there for a bachelorette party and from the moment we arrived until the hour we left there was nothing that the front desk staff or guest relations manager, Cole, didn't do to see that our stay was perfect. One of our favorite times of the our stay was the complimentary happy hour offered on the 9th floor daily. We snacked on delicious food and sipped wine. I hope to go back sometime in the near future and would recommend anyone traveling to the DC area to utilize that great space.

Room Tip: If you can, definitely stay on the 9th floor:)
