“Good Washington Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

Lovely large comfortable room - hotel located in a tree lined Washington avenue. Within walking distance of many good restaurants as well as the excellent Metro. Twice had the breakfast buffet which was very good - in fact twice as good and half the price of the buffet we had in our New York hotel. Great choice for a stay in Washington.

Hello RichardRJW,
Thank you so much for the five stars. Indeed, our Twist Restaurant has an unbeatable value in the area, especially if you compare it to New York. We can't wait to welcome you back! Best Wishes, Simon Attagba, Front Office Manager.

My wife and myself had a wonderful stay at Carlyle Suites during the Christmas season. The whole environment was homely. Room was comfortable, clean and roomy and included a kitchenette. We look forward to having another stay in the future.

This Art Deco styled hotel was nice enough - we arrived and were surprised to find a grumpy maid still cleaning the room and seeming quite upset that we had arrived already - we said "no problem" and left her to fix the room - room is kept clean, especially for an old hotel - nice touch with the powder room - handy to walk most places of interest - standing in the hallway with the door open in order to send this message - internet reception very poor ...have to sit on the toilet to get your emails! But do recommend this for a quiet and handy-to-things stay in Washington DC

Hotel exceeded my expectations for a bargain rate DC room. Room was comfortable, clean and roomy and included a kitchentte. Bed was comfortable and room quiet. Conveniently located next to Embassy Row and Dupont Circle. Plenty of restaurants in the area within a 10 minute walk so did not eat at the hotel but the restaurant there looked like a quality establishment. Staff was friendly and valet parking ($39) prompt.

Room Tip: Kitchenette is very servicable even for short stays.

We spent a week around Christmas- a great time to visit DC as the city is quiet and the rates are low!), and we were very pleased with CalryleSuites. This is a building with a art-deco feel (nothing too fancy, and some oddly shaped mirrors in the rooms), and we found them to be spacious (we did opt for the suite which was really nice with a dining area and a sitting area), with wonderful beds, and terrific staff. Their attitude was just great- helpful and courteous, happy to serve you (Abou Simon was great!). Only downside the small bathrooms and the lack of bodywash (they only had soaps). Would definitely return!

Room Tip: suites seem worth it. View varies a lot, though!

I stayed here for a night, wish I could've stayed longer! The staff was outstanding, very friendly, welcoming and so catering! Great rooms, equipped kitchen, large bathroom and walk in closet, plenty of space for lounging on the couch or catching up on work like myself (grin!). My favorite attribute about this place is that it doesn't have the generic you-see-it-in-every-hotel decoration, it has the feel of a cool little apartment you could stay in for a long time. Very well located too! Five min. walk from Dupond Cir, ten min. walk from U St, $7 cab from U St if you don't want to walk back in the cold. Great price as well! The bed was very comfortable, quiet place. Too bad I didn't have the time to enjoy a in room massage! Definitely my choice of hotel for my next trip in DC!

Room Tip: Room 736, room in perfect condition, great view to the sunrise, very spacious.

See "CrossCountry2014"…I completely concur! And would like to reiterate that the staff was consistently kind and courteous. The breakfast was a little more than we needed or wanted. That said, the food was very good (lots to choose from) and it saved us the time and trouble of finding a spot nearby (as our time was limited). This will be our DC go-to from now on!
