“4 Star experience at great price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

This hotel has everything ... Friendly & helpful staff; large rooms with separate dressing area, sofa/sleeper sitting area; large tv that swivels from seating area to bedroom area; a kitchenette w/ Keurig coffee maker, dishware, fridge, microwave, and stovetop; and it close to restaurants, metro, and grocery store.

Our group of 5 stayed here very comfortably for 7 days! It has a cool Gatsby style in exterior and lobby with all modern in room style.

I was looking for a decent place to stay for 3 days that Wouldnt break my pockets but simultaneously Wouldnt compromise quality. I've stayed at the Avenue Suites before and loved it because of its all inclusive amenities and reasonable room rates (200/night avg) and I assumed from the other reviews I read that for the price, I could expect the same from Carlyle Suites. On to the point; when I walked in, the place had a really heavy and dark decor and vibe...it seems reminiscent of an Untouchables movies scene where you'd expect to find a murder chalk line around the next corner. Overall, your satisfaction with your room will totally depend on your expectations and quality threshold. I personally didn't like the dreary color scheme through the entire hotel, the limited dinner room service hours (5pm-10pm), the false advertisement of them having a fitness center when in reality they provide you with a one day pass to another location, VERY limited free and tight parking availability. I stayed in room 622(right near the elevator). The fridge didn't work, but otherwise everything else was operational. The kitchenette came equipped with a two eyed stove-top, Keurig coffee maker, fridge, microwave. The bathroom has no tub. No movies on the tv system if you're looking to veg out in the room. The bottom line is, if you're looking for a place to lie your head after indulging in DC's finest whilst keeping a few more dollars in your pocket, you won't sweat staying here. If you're into the wholesome hotel experience like myself, I recommend spending a few more dollars at the Avenue Suites.

The staff is very friendly and helpful.
The hotel is near restaurant row in two directions. It is in a neighborhood so you'll find what ever you need nearby. Taxi to the pier or the big train station was only $12.00 ish. So taxi travel is cheap in DC. Easy to walk around or grab a cab for about $5.00 to the neighborhood stuff.
My room had dust rising in the sunbeams from the sofa and chair cushions when I sat down. I was not happy and asked to have the furniture vacuumed. Don't think they did because the towels I covered everything with were still there.
I am missing a dress I wore on the airplane and which did not come home in my luggage.
Janice, at the hotel said it was not reported found. Where oh where did my expensive dress go? Would I go back? No.

My wife and I enjoy staying at The Carlyle Suites, very much. The rooms are suites. The staff have always been friendly and helpful (thank you David). They have a parking lot. They allow pets. It is in a nice part of town, convenient enough. You do not have to hit the ground running when you walk out the front door. There are plenty of hotels in Washington to choose from. Why don't you just go elsewhere, and keep The Carlyle Suites available for my wife and I.

Room Tip: Be polite to everyone.

We had a lovely three night stay here. Our room is a good size, with lots of light, windows on two sides and a kitchenette (the Safeway is nearby!). Everything is comfortable and convenient. The only criticism is that one morning we didn't get our wake up call, but otherwise this was a wonderful, Art Deco, convenient and comfy place to nest in DC. It would be a good place for a family or a couple. Good bet!

Fabulous hotel and great base for our recent family holiday in DC. Kitchen in room was perfect for cooking our breakfast each morning and the local Safeway store perfect for stocking the fridge. Staff all really helpful. We can't wait to return!
