We recently enjoyed 5 nights at this hotel. We got a fantastic deal via expedia, perhaps that is the reason we had a view of the car park, but won't complain as we did get a great price compared to other hotels in DC. Previously we had stayed in Georgetown, but the price was double to this hotel.
Location is great - walking distance to Dupont Circle metro, plenty of bars & restaurants located nearby. Area is very safe with lots of embassies & lovely houses in the area. We did notice quite a few homeless in the area, but they were harmless, unlike other cities, where you can be constantly hassled.
The room was quite large, with a kitchenette which came in handy as we were able to prepare our own breakfast. There is a Safeway less than a 5 min walk for supplies. I enjoyed having the keurig coffee machine with daily replenished pods - great for my morning coffee. Though did take me a few goes to work it out properly!
I do agree with others that the furnishings & rooms look a little tired, however they are very clean & well maintained.
We did find the room a little warm overnight & there was no way to regulate the temp, however there were windows that we could open. We spoke to front desk & were advised that other guests had complained that it was cold so the temp had been turned up.
My partner said that the bed was one of the most comfortable he had slept in.
Front desk staff were pleasant & helpful. We were able to use the hotels laptop to print off our boarding passes to their printer, which was handy. They provided maps & were helpful with directions etc.
There are coin operated laundry facilities in the basement which came in handy, especially after travelling for almost 2 weeks & only doing hand washing.
2 days in a row we did have issues with the key cards to our room. They worked in the lift, however wouldn't allow us to open the room door. After the keys were fixed a 2nd time, it was ok after that. I did like the fact that a key card is needed to access the lift, good security!
I would recommend the Carlyle Suites & if we are ever back in DC would definitely stay there.
