The A/C in the room was very poor, the Room was not as cool as it should have been. We did ask for a fan and received one, however, later we were informed that the A/C was not working a few days prior to our arrival. On the second morning, I found only coffee in our room, no cream or... More

The location as pointed out is really good, close to metro, good restaurants and grocery store and in safe neighborhood. Restaurant and bar in hotel serve good breakfast at reasonable price and good drinks if you don't feel like venturing out early or late. Fitness Center is in the basement but well lit and has good cardio equipment, weights and... More

Just spent 4 nights in this fabulous hotel. Huge rooms, drinks between 5-6 and staff are wonderful. The Inhouse restaurant and bar are a bonus. Easy walk to multitude of restaurants around DuPont Circle. Would highly recommend. Did I say staff are fantastic. Well done!

My partner and I were on a trip of the US and got this hotel from Hotwire.... Overall the location was ok... About 500-800m to restaurants/ shops and felt fairly safe even at night... The restaurant downstairs was pretty groovy and reasonably priced. The staff at the front were courteous...Don't count on getting the free bikes we missed out everyday... More

Pros: located in a residential area was very quiet. You can sit outside by the front entrance and feel like your at someone's home. Room was large and well appointed. Staff very helpful and pleasant. Cons: small gripe but the ac seems to never shut off. Runs constantly to try to maintain 72 or 73 degrees. Granted it was mid... More

Boutique hotel in residential area near quaint restaurants and embassies. The room was huge with comfortable beds and an equally spacious bathroom complete with a shower that was wheelchair accessible. The fridge and microwave were welcome  amenities. Will recommend more lighting in the bedroom and a bigger drain in the shower as the water flows freely leaving one to use... More

We chose the Carlyle through booking.com and our party of 10 stayed one night across 3 rooms. Check in was quick and easy and all rooms were ready for immediate check in. The staff were all helpful and polite. Only valet parking available but we easily found street parking nearby for our 15 seater minivan. Very cool hotel with spacious... More

The hotel is within a short walking distance of many restaurants, a dog park, metro, and some bars. It is also within walking distance of Starbucks, Rite Aid, and Whole Foods (should you want/need anything at those places.) The restaurant breakfast was very good! The beds are comfortable, clean rooms, and well stocked bathrooms. You are away from the DC... More

This was my first visit to this property. Got a great rate! My check in was easy and the staff was friendly & very accommodating. I received a free upgrade to a suite. The room was clean but pretty small. I loved the kitchenette but the space was cramped. The lighting in the closet area was poor. The bathroom, although... More

I came to DC for a work trip and stayed the weekend for fun with friends. The room was very nice and large, great minibar and snacks, and very comfortable bed. The staff were also wonderful at every point. My only negative is that I agree with a previous post-- the rooms were too warm and humid. You can't turn... More
