The hotel is 2 blocks away from Dupont Circle, a very nice neighborhood. Though the prices of that hotel is pricey but if you check 3rd party book sites, you will find good deals. I would not recommend you book directly with the hotel. Expecia didn't appear to give me good deal either. I found the reduced price at booking.com and venere.com. When you do make the reservation, this is something you want to keep in your mind.
There are a lot of nice restaurants around Dupont Circle. Also if you want to eat on budget, there are a lot of great eateries on Connecticut Ave, which are very popular among locals and especially youngsters.
A CSV grocery story is also nearby, which is open for 24 hours for your convenience.
For Internet access, if you do not want to use expensive hotel option, starbucks is also within walking distance and I brought my ipad there for all my online needs.
You can go almost anywhere from Dupont Metro Station. For Georgetown, which Metro subway does not go to, you can take DC circulator bus. It is on the other side of Dupont Circle on Connecticut Street (toward southeast), you can get on bus and pay $1 (exact change please). The bus will take you to the heart of M Street in Georgetown, a wonderful place for shopping and restaurant.
Night time, if you want to go out and have fun. Popular 18th street lounge is also very nearby on Connecticut street, plus other bars.
Overall, the hotel is nice, clean and especially friendly staff. The only thing is it is expensive. Well all hotels in DC appear to be expensive anyway. Just keep in mind that you should shop around. But I highly recommend this hotel.
One note: if you travel with a family, the typical king size room might be very small. it is actually a lot smaller than a typical Hilton hotel king size bedroom. That is the only thing. But since I travel solo, I do not mind.
