“Fantastic Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014

We spent a long weekend at this fabulous hotel in the Summer of 2012, I wasn't contributing reviews then but I thought it was now time to add my comments. The breakfast at this hotel is simply the best i have experienced! From Menu choices to Service to Food quality, all tip top. Staff right through from Management to Catering to Bell Hops, extremely helpful and really cannot wait to visit again....!

Excellent location, sleek and simple style, attentive service, great restaurant & bar (I got the feeling this was a popular location even for people not staying at the hotel, which is always a good sign). The bedroom was well appointed, simple as far as decor (which is my taste) without losing any amenity. However, there seems to be a trend among "boutique" hotels these days of constructing the bathroom so that there really is no solid wall between the toilet area and the sink area, but a "false" wall of tempered glass, open around all the sides where it comes in contact with the wall, allowing sounds to be heard by your partner in the sink area or in bed. Moreover, if you should need to go to bathroom at night, there is no way to turn on the light in the bathroom only, so light shines on your partner in bed. As a probably unique problem, our room (706) had a problem with the shower drain, as water didn't really drain well, causing some overflow into the bathroom area. So, something to be aware of -- if you like your private time to be, well, totally private.

We stayed at Dupont Circle Hotel for a week and had the most fantastic experience right from the outset . The staff are amazingly friendly and helpful. We felt that the entire staff ,from front desk onwards ,were genuinely interested in us and ensuring that we had a first rate experience while in Washington.
It was our 40th anniversary and 1of the staff ,on her day off, ensured we received a bottle of champaign and chocolates. This small but truly appreciative gesture was symbolic of the staff.

As for the hotel itself, first class all the way and close to Metro subway and walking distance to many excellent restaurants and shopping. It is right in the middle of a neighbourhood ,so it felt like we were an area where people lived rather than hotel row. Near by restaurants have excellent food as they cater to the locals not just toutists.

Cannot recommend this hotel enough. Thank you to Doyanna,Cole, Nick, Michael, Caesar and all the other staff of the hotel, you made our visit memorable in the most positive way. We will return

My partner and I were married at the hotel on December 11, 2013. From the moment we walked into the hotel until the moment we left we were treated as though we were royalty. Cole met us as soon as we walked into the lobby and guided us to our room and ensured we understood all the amenities of the hotel - she made us feel very welcomed and even treated us to champagne and chocolate dipped strawberries in our room following our wedding! She checked in on us frequently to ensure that everything about our stay was perfect. She is a wonderful person and quite and asset to the hotel! We were welcomed to our room by a very gracious and thoughtful card from Mark, the hotel's general manager, and Cole, the hotel’s guest relations manager. Though we had several dining and drinking options in DC, we chose to spend most of our evenings in the hotel's bar - an amazing place with a beautiful view of the circle and DC's night life! The staff at the bar was simply amazing and treated us like long lost friends! I can't say enough about CeCe (Cesia), Drew, Auggy, and Shane - they made our stay extremely memorable and we could not get over how attentive, professional, and just down right friendly these wonderful individuals were and we felt as though we made new friends of them. Though we had not met them, the first night we sat at the bar they knew us by name - I was floored! I confess I was very surprised at how good the food was as well! Having spent a good part of my career traveling, hotel food hasn’t always the best option when dining. The Dupont Circle Hotel is the exception. We ate most evening meals in the bar and food was absolutely phenomenal - we were very happy. My partner and I will never forget our stay at the hotel and the kind, friendly, professional, and attentive staff! We will never stay anywhere else in DC and if others are traveling to DC - they shouldn't stay anywhere else either!

This is by far my favorite hotel in DC. It may not be the ritzy, trendiest place but the rooms are modern, clean and very comfortable. The beds are great and the service is perfect. Location could not be better. Love this place!

Very helpful concierge staff, room wasn't ready when I arrived which was a bit of an inconvenience so I had some food on the out door terrace. Hotel is fully renovated and modern including rooms. Front desk staff could be a little friendlier. Overall a very nice stay and I will be back.

We were made very welcome from the second we drove up. Very friendly and professional staff. We had a room with two double beds, and it was a bit tight for us. The bathroom was attractive with a heated floor, good water pressure and plenty of hot water. I liked that there is a window you can open in the bathroom.

No refrigerator in the room.

We were able to walk to the White House, the Lincoln Memorial, etc., which were roughly a mile or so away.

Lively bar on the first floor with outdoor seating. A lovely hotel. Will get a larger room next time.
