Managed to get half-off with an online deal, which ain't bad. The hotel is well-situated, the staff are helpful, everything is super clean and fancy, and we managed to do free street parking with an expensive car and no worries. Also, the bar is pretty great, and I had a wonderful old fashioned there.

I was with a group of high school students in DC to attend Together 2016. This hotel was great for our needs. The beds were comfy and the rooms well air conditioned. We had a great stay and would definitely recommend this place. The staff was helpful and the water in the lobby was a life saver!

I like this hotel for multiple reason. First, being on New Hampshire near Dupont Circle is the perfect location. It's quite and near so many restaurants and entertainment. The second being the rock star staff. Everyone is very polite and efficient, perfect. Riggsby, the on-site restaurant provides great meals! The rooms are quite spacious and always clean. Thanks to housekeeping... More

To be fair , I would want to rate it 3.6 stars. Pros: so close to the nice restaurants near DuPont circle. I was there for 6 nights so the front desk gave me a bigger room according to them. The room was decent size but very limited closet space. The bell service was very good. Cons: A good 10... More

We had a very nice & quiet room on the 8th floor. Comfortable king bed, in a nicely decorated room. The bathroom was nice & clean. Not much counter space around the sink, but plenty next to it in the vanity area, with a nice wall mirror & magnifying mirror & a seat to use when applying makeup etc. Great... More

First of all, staff are excellent. They've managed to get a perfect balance of efficiency and friendliness. There was a kind of young, cool vibe about the place, without tipping into pretentiousness, which isn't the case with some other chains that would fall into the same category cough*W*cough. The location is great. It's in a quiet, leafy neighbourhood, but with... More

We spent 8 days here with our 9th months old son. We chose a room with a small kitchenette: just a microweave and a sink so that I was able to prepare baby food. Despite all the difficulties everyone has when moving with a baby, I have to say that everything went well! The staff has been great: willing and... More

Just adding my second review of this hotel as it deserves all the praise it gets. We enjoyed our stay last year so it made sense to go there again this time and we weren't disappointed. Still the same great service from the moment we arrived to the time we checked out. Keep up the good work, folks.

Swanky cool hotel, well decorated and perfectly located. Some confusion on check in because I booked through a throw party which I rarely do and didn't get my points. honestly though, every time I stay at a Kimpton they get better. Rooms are awesome and clean no you typical drab hotel feel. Restaurant downstairs was great, nice wine list and... More

The room we had was furnished to a high standard: really comfortable bed with modern mattress, spacious room (we had a city view king deluxe), huge tv, clean and modern decor. The closet space was a touch on the limited side, though we're thankful for the room safe for our travel docs and passports. Also there was a hair drier,... More
