Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 4, 2013

pI'm a frequent traveler to DC and have stayed at this property a number of times over the years. This stay provided a remarkable example of exceptional customer service. As I approached the front desk to check in, Dayonna recognized me and greeted me heartily and BY NAME. I hadn't stayed at the hotel for just over ten months, and I remembered that Dayonna had somehow remembered my name that time as well. Getting back to my room late the second night of my stay, I was surprised to find a handwritten note and a "welcome back" note. Fantastic! The hotel is situated directly on the Circle and is steps from the Metro. The rooms are comfortable and modern, and the restaurant is great. Can't go wrong with this great property!

Room Tip: Internally facing rooms are very quiet; external rooms have nice views of busy Dupont Circle.

I have previously lived near Washington DC and Dupont Circle was one of my favourite areas of the city. When we went to visit some friends in Virginia, my husband and I decided to hit our old haunts in the District and decided to stay at the Dupont Circle Hotel for the location. The room was very stylishly appointed, with an iPod player on the night-table and a half-open bathroom that had a heated floor (the toilet and shower were separated from the rest of the room by frosted glass walls). The king bed was very comfortable, not too soft as in many hotels. The front desk was very friendly and helpful, and the valet service was very expedient in parking and retrieving our car. The hotel showed their professionalism and outstanding level of service by sending back my cell phone which I had stupidly left in the room! I called them when I got home, and they arranged to send the phone back by next day FedEx. Very impressive! This hotel is in a great location and I will definitely stay here again during my next trip to DC.

Great place to stay - not too expensive even after paying valet parking fee. Will stay again next time visiting DC. I found it odd the shower had no door, but the guest isn't exactly responsible for clean up. My girlfriend told me it was a fashion statement of sorts; I'm not exactly in the loop when it comes to the latest trends. Staff was extremely helpful and accommodating!

I always stay here when I travel for work. The rooms are nice and trendy. Its centrally located and the room service is always great. The showers dont have doors which I always wonder why since the water goes all over the bathroom but that is not a big deal! The staff is always super nice and accomodating! There is a cool bar downstairs too.

Three night escape over Veteran's Day. We were checked in my Siobhan (sorry if I spelled her name wrong) from Ireland. When she looked for our reservation she could not immediately locate it. A few minutes later we were checked in with an upgrade. The service from all was friendly and efficient during our stay.
The room was small but with a very comfortable bed. WiFi was very slow. I agree with others who didn't appreciate the lack of privacy in the bathroom. All hotels now seem to put in the large flat sinks with about 2" from bottom to rim. Why? I find them sloppy! Somehow though I really loved the room and the location of it. We could sit and view the planes flying in and out of the city and watched the moon rise one evening.
This room would not be great for a family. Perfect for one or two.
The rate was very fair and the location can't be beat. We will be back sometime.

We only stayed here one night and it was a memorable one. Not only is the staff friendly and accommodating, but this lovely hotel exceeded our expectations. As the weather was very chilly, we spent a lot of time in our cozy room with HDTV, and a gorgeous view of Dupont Circle. The major bonus we weren't expecting - the bathroom had heated floors! This hotel is blessedly dog-friendly and we had our chihuahua with us. Dudley had a great time here too, and even enjoyed meeting a certain celebrity's doggy.
We had only one complaint, and that was that someone had set the iPod radio alarm to go off loudly at 5 am, so we sat bolt upright in bed! What a shock. But when we mentioned to the staff so they could have the maid reset the alarm, they offered us breakfast vouchers as compensation. That, we were also not expecting! Many hotels we've stayed out might not even blink an eye at such a report and only grunt out an apology. But Dupont Circle Hotel made the effort to make amends, and boy was their breakfast yummy! Be sure to try the restaurant in the hotel, you won't be disappointed! Finally, we were made to feel very much at home as the General Manager even came to speak with us and all members of staff were incredibly friendly. We will be sure to book here again next time we're in DC!

Absolutely loved this hotel. Our room was SUPER comfortable and well-appointed, the free WiFi was very much appreciated, and the staff just couldn't have been nicer. The hotel has a very intimate, Euro-chic style that just really fits in its hyper-cool Dupont Circle neighborhood. And the hotel's bar is the absolute perfect place to end a crazy DC day. And our room's bathroom? We were already planning a remodel of our master bath at our home and we have now tried out the prototype! (Seriously--took dozens of pics...hope you don't mind us stealing your design, hotel folks!!) We will DEFINTELY be back!
