“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

We stayed at Carlyle hotel and we enjoyed our stay here.The room is nice, comfortable, safe neighborhood, and the cooking furniture is a plus, the staff are friendly, helpful and courteous, polite and you will feel welcome, they will even greet you in the morning. There's a free first come first serve parking which is really good. The location is great! What more can you ask, its in dupont circle! Checking in and checking out is a breeze! We will definitely book and use this hotel again and would recommend it to our friends who wants to visit washington DC.

We love the Carlyle Suites in Dupont Circle. We have stayed there on 2 successive trips to DC. We can easily walk to the metro, and we can walk to Kramerbooks and Afterwords, one of our favorite places to eat and read. On this most recent visit, it happened to be the Embassy Open House weekend, and we were right in the midst of it!

The reviews on tripadvisor are bang on, this hotel has all the boxes ticked and more.

It's conveniently located , within 10-15 minutes of the National Mall by cab and walking distance to the metro station.

The suites are nice, well appointed, you don't feel crowded even with four of a family in the same room. The way they have allocated space is nice too, luggage closet, pantry, dressing alcove are all well planned and equipped. Toilets are clean, modern and decent on toiletories.

The real assets of this hotel are their staff, front office is always prompt and smiling, concierge is helpful and pleasant, room service is lightning quick. Even on phone calls, they answer your phone on not more than two rings, anytime of the day. Full marks to them on their courtesy, smiles and service.

I spent one night at the Carlyle Suites on May 9; the building is a remodeled apt. Bldg with a smallish Art Deco lobby and decor. Extremely clean and comfy, with little kitchenettes and half-tables and bar stool chairs in each room. Great location among embassies and stately homes near DuPont Circle. The staff were wonderful; eager to tell me that the rental scooter had been delivered a day early for my mom. They rode it into the lobby for me. Then when We couldn't figure out how to disassemble it for stowing in the car, Simon at the desk spent a good ten minutes or more trying to help me, until I gave up and called the rental company.

There's a bar we didn't use. Beds were very comfortable, no complaints from my 80-something parents in the room across the hall. I like these smaller hotels tucked away in these beautiful neighborhoods; they remind me of places I've stayed in London, Spain and Italy and you do find Europeans staying there. This was a Hotline leap of faith that I enjoyed more than a big chain hotel; one of two DC properties we stayed at because I tacked on an extra night for only two out of a three-room booking at the other place, which was similarly small, well appointed, well staffed and European in feel.

Room Tip: We were in 428 and 426, I think. Near the elevator but still quiet. The shower was hard to figure o...

Among the most pleasant hotel stays in years, the Carlyle Suites exceeded my expectations. This charming Art Deco apartment hotel is on a beautiful street 3 blocks NE of Dupont Circle. My room was large, spotless and very comfortable; this proved to be excellent value in costly Washington, DC. The generous buffet breakfast is served in a creatively-decorated interior courtyard made to look like a outdoor square; service was excellent.

Brunch Buffet

A friend of a friend introduced me to this hotel for brunch. I live nearby and had never before thought about going to Carlyle for brunch. First of all, the service has got to be the best in the DuPont Area! David, the manager, was on hand to greet us and show us the way to the brunch hall. We later saw him escorting several elderly ladies to the hall, which is not something I've seen in my 8 years in DC. Secondly, the food was delicious, hot and plentiful. No stale eggs, or pasty bacon sitting on semi-warm servers. There is a made to order omelet/waffle station that was fast and efficient. Thirdly, this may not matter to most, but the entire staff was extremely pleasant, polite and helpful - each one with a smile.

We've paid up to $50 a person for brunch in the past, but the $35 per person (which includes all you can eat and drink) was well worth it!!!

I can't give a higher recommendation!!
