“Great for our new family!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

We stayed for 7 nights in Feb, 2013. Loved the size of the room, the awesome bed, and the eat-in area in the room! Was perfect for us with our newborn son! Just enough room! The kitchen was great and had everything we needed! Safeway was just around the corner - 5 minute walk. We had lunch or snacks in the restaurant a few times...great burgers and fries! The basement self-serve laundry was perfect since we were washing baby clothes daily! The staff was awesome! The room was clean and the bathroom was updated and very nice for the modest size!

What a great stay we had at Carlyle Suites with my two kids (16 & 19yrs.). Thanks and kudos to front desk people Bernadette and Mediombo! I work for a major cruise company where customer service is the name of the game and this property has it down pat. From quick easy check-in, to advice about how to get around D.C. with the Metro, all delivered with a sincere smile - you guys were awesome. The bellmen were excellent, loading my car in the pouring rain ... and the bartenders, quick and pleasant. I saw a 3.5 star rating on the type of property this was so was expecting an older but decent room. Really surpried with our suite which seemed to have been recently renovated with great art deco furnishing. Personality + ... even the elevators were cool. View from numerous windows was gorgeous. Close to numerous great restaurants (favorite was Hanks' Oyster Bar); couldn't have asked for anything more. Thanks, and keep up the great work!

Room Tip: Top floor had great views.

Squeaky clean gem in Dupont Circle. Art-deco décor, super comfortable beds, quiet spacious rooms, great little kitchen to boot. Incredible staff, super convenient bar and restaurant. Superb customer service to boot. Just loved this place!!!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

This property is situated on what is an otherwise residential street. We drove right by it when we first arrived. The property is from 1930's heyday and does have some character. In some senses, it is a little awkward because it is not quite historic, not quite luxury, not quite a business hotel...etc. It is pretty well situated and is close to the metro (clearly a selling point for the property). There is a nice bar and a passable brunch restaurant (not quite good). Our rooms were clean (but in an "older room clean" kind of way. The decor was nice and updated, but the structure itself was a bit dated (like with doorways with doors removed years ago). Our rooms had kitchenettes and a small make-up application area...but were not useful to us (I could see someone who wanted to stay in and cook liking this place).

The staff was friendly and nice. Not always helpful, but they tried, and we got all our needs met in the end. I would call the service at this property "quite good" for the price.

The biggest problem of this property (for me) -- and the reason I will never stay here again -- is the parking, Like I'd mentioned, I first drove right by the property...one reason was that there is nothing at all at the front of the property that would separate it from a residential townhouse. This means there was no valet and no obvious parking. There is a 15-minute side-of-the-street slice of curb, but even that was full (so I never noticed it).

There is a non-descript alley that leads to a small parking area in the back that has a number of spots at strange angles (trying to maximize the space). The parking is complimentary which I am guessing is abnormal for the area. However, if I am staying at a hotel (whether business or pleasure) and spending $250+ a night, I do not expect to have to troll the area looking for street parking (and then having to wake up before I get a ticket in the morning). It was raining hard for most of my stay, and it was miserable trying to find parking each time I got back to the hotel. There is a public parking garage close by, but they charge $43 to park overnight (if you pick your car up after 9:00AM). I couldn't do that just out of principal.

Over the few days I was here, I ended up eating at several other area hotels. Each sported a modern feel and had a valet (or other parking), and a clear drop-off area for patrons. Thinking about my return to the Carlyle and my inevitable search for area parking soured my trip. I am not used to looking at all the other hotels in the areas and feeling like I would be more comfortable at them.

I don't want to sound too negative. If you are not driving and will take the metro everywhere and are looking exactly for a 3-star hotel with kitchenette, this one may be for you. It sounds like this is a very convenient property for the metro. And again, the staff was nice and friendly, and operationally it was fine (not luxury, but fine). I would not give this property a fail in any category except in parking.

Really nice Hotel in a great location with an easy walk to Dupont Circle & restaurants.
Nice Art deco furnishings & atmosphere with a very well laid out room , very comfortable bed and with a good size kitchenette.
Very good price compared to others in the area. I would definitely stay here again.
Parking is "first come first served" so we had to park on the street but this was free on the weekend anyway.

The Carlyle Suites Hotel was a recommendation of the 9:30 Club and we are so glad it was! The hotel was spotless and the staff was friendly and accommodating without being overbearing. Their bar was superb! The bartender made our drinks from scratch with NO POWDERED MIX! Woohoo! We ordered appetizers in the bar as well, which were fresh, beautifully prepared and delicious. The location of the hotel was perfect...we parked our car and walked everywhere we needed to go the entire weekend. The Carlyle is located in a beautiful and safe part of the city, with bars and restaurants galore.

I really like this hotel. It is within a short walk to the Dupont Circle Metro. The surrounding neighborhood is charming. The hotel has interesting art deco features. The room was clean, had comfortable beds, and a little kitchenette. It suited our needs just perfectly. The room was a little on the small side, but it did not bother us at all since we were only there to sleep. They have a very friendly staff with helpful amenities as an on-site laundry and bar. I would stay here again.
