“Excellent Experience”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

We stayed a couple of nights at the dupont circle hotel last year end of november. got a fantastic room on level nine, where very happy with the cool amenities and the friendly staff. we stayed at several DC Hotels before and this was by far the best experience. Efficient, very quick check in at the front desk, nice room with wicked pickled vegetables in a can as amenities, bathtop with view, cocktails even i haven't heard of at the bar, and spot on food from the kitchen.
On our next visit to DC, we'll definitely choose the Dupond again.

I was really impressed by the staff - many of whom seemed to be Irish - and who were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The hotel is wonderfully positioned. On one day I walked from the hotel to the White House, Lincoln Memorial, and Capitol - and on another day walked down to Georgetown. The rooms are really comfortable and quiet - though I would have preferred a bath-tub to just a shower. Free wi-fi works well. Bar good and friendly (with plenty of nuts too!)

I cannot report on this hotel because I failed to get a booking but not for want of trying. I called to book several rooms at this hotel, received a price quote but was told to call back the following day. I did so and could but complete the arrangements because the travel manager was not available. I continued to call without success. Six days after my initial contact, I received a pleasant call from the reservations office. Alas, the price had increased 33 percent. The reservations office declined to honor the price quote. My offer to split the difference was also politely rejected. I guess there is no honor in such matters these days.

I had a fantastic weekend staying at this hotel. Great atmosphere, and central to most places of interest. The accommodation was good, staff polite, and the bar lively. But don't ask the bar staff for a 'port', it seemed to confused the waitress who didn't know it was.

I've stayed here a few times on business and always enjoy the hotel. The rooms are always clean, beds are conforrtable, the gym has enough machines to accomodate several people at one time and the staff is always friendly and helpful. I would choose this hotel for both peronal and biz travel.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the circle have more road noise but that's to be expected. For a quieter room, stay...

We recently had a great dinner and amazing hospitality at the Dupont Circle Hotel. We were hosting Australian wine industry VIPs and Heidi took great care of us at the restaurant, and then at level 9. Thank you so much for creating such a personal and friendly experience for these guests. I'll definitely send more of our winemaker & wine industry VIPs your way!
