“Great value proposition for a DC stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

We came to town to visit our nephew who attends college down here. We didn't think we would want to spring for an in-town hotel and were going to settle for a chain hotel in the outlying area. For HA-HAs, we looked at the DC proper listings and saw the high ranking of Carlyle Suites and the price point was not much more than we would have paid to stay in Sliver Springs. Better yet, the all-suites setup allowed our nephew to stay in the room with us on the pullout couch.The room was spacious, clean and modern. The staff was warm and friendly from the front desk to housekeeping. The location was perfect and having free parking in the rear gave us the ability to use our car and access the easy street parking that DC and Georgetown have on weekends. Great place. It will be our go-to choice for future DC visits.

Hi SkinnyGuides!! We LOVE TripAdvisor...it brings folks like you, who may have never found us, to our doors. We think your nephew misses you already and that you should hurry back to DC to visit him (and us!) again!! Thank you for taking the time to post - JoAnn

I stay here every business trip now. We get a great rate and I love that every bed is a tempurpedic. Every room has a kitchenette. I've never stayed more than one night at a time, but I would have no problems recommending this place for longer stays. Great restaurants nearby and blocks from the Dupont Circle Metro. Near a college so lots of younger folks walking around. Feels very open and safe. Never had any problems here. Rooms are big, nice big TV. Never tried the on-site restaurant since there are so many eating choices around.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms higher up and facing the back of the hotel for a more quiet night.

Welcom Home, Michael L!! On your next visit, stop in and see Taj at the Lobby Bar (he's on duty most week nights). He'd love to introduce you to our on-site restaurant! Thank you for being one of our "regulars!" See you soon - JoAnn, David, Simon, Karen, Mediombo and the TEAM!

I recently spent a weekend in this hotel. The staff.. ALL I had contact with were warm, immediately responsive, and did not seem to just be doing a job. They took pride in helping with everything from parking to fixing a coffee maker .. immediately. Of particular note were the services of Juan Carlos the house man, and Dante and Abu at the desk. The scale of the hotel was perfect for a single woman traveler and the area was full of walkable restaurants and minutes from the metro. I also found it easy to walk down to the mall (but I love walking in DC) I enjoyed having a small architecturally de-emphasized kitchenette. Finally, there were several small room details that demonstrated awareness of how to design a room and bath to make it very user friendly. I will definitely stay here again

Room Tip: If travelling and wanting two beds ask for a corner room.. Lovely.

I had a very lovely stay at the Carlyle Suites Hotel, from beginning to end. The reservation service staff was helpful and accurate. Upon arrival, there was no delay, just a welcome! The room was comfortable with many pleasant features--free Wi-Fi, comfortable mattress, shower set up so that you can turn it on without getting wet, tidy kitchenette, and good heating system on a bitter cold day. I cannot say enough nice things about the staff. Juan Carlos goes beyond in providing whatever is needed; all were gracious; I remember Kamaria and Karcu always smiling. If you come early, free parking may be available. I would love to stay here again.

Room Tip: The corner suite on a high floor is perfect.

We stayed 4 nights at the Carlyle Suites Hotel. The room were very comfortable for me, my husband and 12 year old daughter. We appreciated the kitchenette, the free Wi-Fi (although it was inconvenient to have to log in all the time) and the friendly, helpful staff. A light blew and was replaced within the hour. Great location, lovely neighborhood. We were able to walk to the the two kosher restaurants in DC as well as many other places.

Very nice Art Deco property, walking distance from the Dupont Circle in the elegant district of Embasy Row, the staff was helpfull and friendly at all times. The bedroom was confortable, on the small side, but cozy, with a kitchinette, a refrigerator, and a convenient Kourig cooffe maker.
We enjoyed a nice parking place for 4 nights plus permission to let the car in the parking lot during our travel to New York for 5 days. That is what I call a good service!!!!!.
Definitelly I will recommend this Hotel, and will be back when again in Washington.

I would say this is great value, but that would undermine the overall review. this is a great hotel, location, room, and service - for any price! There is free wifi, close to DuPont Circle (<8 min walk), and close to Hilton hotels and Adams Morgan area. The beds were very comfortable, and the suites are large with with the amenities you would expect in a suite. Dante and Jordan at the front desk were also very friendly and accommodating.

Room Tip: corner rooms are bigger - it seems to be a relatively quiet location
