Very friendly staff contributes to overall appeal of the hotel. The rooms are spacious, comfortable, and clean. The hotels offers many perks - wine hour, free wifi with Kempton membership, as well as $10 coupon for the mini bar. Highly recommended for D.C. - vacation or business travel.

Okay, it's not the newest of the Kimptons, but still delivers. The staff are very friendly, the Happy Hour could be improved a notch or so (hard to find a place to sit - small area). The room was very nice. We loved it's Moroccan feel. It had very cool wall paper (which I usually hate, but this was really eclectic - LOVED IT) in the bathroom. The linens were great, bed was comfy, and parking wasn't too bad. It is close to some good restaurants. If you're a Kimpton boutique hotel fan, round out your experience and give this place a try. It's near the Metro, so if you're from out of town you can get around easily.

Room Tip: Ask for a front facing room.

Green Features: They are very good about being earth friendly, but not so much that you feel like you're camping. Nicely balanced.

This hotel certainly aims to please with service of the staff and additional guest offers. The other highlight of our stay was the room size. We stayed in a King Deluxe. Large bed, separate couches and generously proportioned room made for a very comfortable stay, particularly given we were in Washington DC for 3 nights. The only minor criticism is the unreliable WiFi..our ability to connect was intermittent and at times frustrating. Also...be prepared for relatively expensive parking at $45 per night for valet and the other tip would be to skip the internal laundry service.

Great bar and great folks running the place. Service was superb and who doesn't like to go someplace "where everybody knows your name"?

Situated conveniently to our office as well as an easy taxi spot, this is my first choice and I am always diisappointed when I can't get in!

My husband and I stayed here for a few nights in July and had a great time. Every single employee was pleasant and helpful. The rooms are oddly shaped which makes the rooms quirky and fun - especially since they're very clean and have trendy furnishings. Great location near Dupont Circle.

I stayed at this hotel over the 4th of July weekend. I chose this hotel due to location (near Dupont Circle) and a fair price for a Kimpton. I had not stayed here before. In terms of location, it was very good as it is only a block and a half from Dupont Circle and on a quiet street. It is a little further away from Dupont than the Palomar, but again, very quiet in return. The property condition itself was very average, if not below Kimpton standards. Public areas were very worn. Service was at or below Kimpton standards. No bikes were available during a three night stay despite multiple attempts to borrow. The front desk did not read our check in and rate instructions thoroughly, and attempted to charge us more than promised. Rather than call the home office booking system to resolve this issue themselves, they required the guest to do so, and then ask the home office to call back to the front desk. This was a poor approach to resolving the situation. The initial bartender (first night) was uninterested to serve all the guests and required prompting for service. I also witnessed a couple attempt to check in only to find the reservation was not in the Hotel's computer system. The couple had proof of the charge, but the front desk only pleaded that the hotel accountant was gone for the weekend and nothing could be done. Having experienced this poor service, I visited the Palomar where a friend was staying and found the facilities and service exceptional in comparison. In conclusion, I would not stay at the Topaz next trip, but would consider the Palomar.

Room Tip: Beware that elevators are really slow and the hotel is very small. While handicap accessible, not t...

Dear AaronCunningham,

Thank you for your feedback from your stay over the July 4th Weekend. I am really sorry that your service experience was so subpar. We really strive to deliver top quality service to all of our guests and clearly we fell short in this instance and I am very sorry for that. I agree that having you call to sort out the rate issue is not the correct way to go about this, we should have done that on our end.

Thank you for your comments on the facility itself as well. We are always looking for ways to improve and make sure the property is in the best state possible.

We hope you will come give us another shot on your next visit to DC.

Thank you,

This hotel is a great place for a few nights in Washington. We found the location pretty quiet and fairly close to the main sites. The room was very nice, the staff were very polite. The air con in the room was very noisy though and their engineer couldn't fix it. If we were there for longer, we would have asked to move. Bar prices are pretty high, but what you would expect in a city hotel. Be aware of the tipping culture, it's expected.

There were a few decent bars in the area, and plenty of restaurants. DuPont Circle wasn't that great, there didn't seem to be a lot there.
Take a trip to Georgetown, great for shops and places to eat and it has a lot of character.
