“Excellent Venue for Our 2-day Business Conference Event”
Reviewed February 27, 2014

We recently held a two-day corporate conference at the Dupont Circle Hotel with over 150 clients, partners and employees. This was our second year holding this event at the hotel. The entire team at the Dupont Circle Hotel helped us not only execute another successful event, but yet again far exceeded ours and our guests’ expectations. From the contracting phase, up until the last hour of the event, the Dupont Circle Hotel’s team was very accommodating, responsive and extremely easy to work with. Fabian, Silvan, Sara and Rachel were always on point and checking in with us to see if there was anything we needed and when we asked for something, it was done right away. Cole was also great in taking care of us and our guests and specifically our VIP clients. The hotel is glamorous, while at the same time, very comfortable and functional. Overall, the space is well designed and on top of that, we got dozens of compliments from our clients on the food! We heard over and over again from our guests that it is the best food they have ever had at a conference. Chef did a spectacular job, especially on our customized Caribbean themed dinner menu (which included a whole pig roast!). All said and done, we could not have imagined the event going so well without the outstanding help of the Dupont Circle Hotel team.

We ended up with this hotel for the weekend with some friends and didn't know what we were getting with Hotwire, but it was fanatastic. It is in the heart of Dupont Circle. The rooms are modern and the beds comfortable with interesting "Do Not Disturb" button that lights up outside your door in red to let staff know not to disturb you, dimming lights, and reading lights on each side of the bed. The floors near the sink and shower have an option to warm the tile so you are not standing on cold tile. There are plantation shutters on the windows for privacy. There is a cafe style restaurant separate from the bar which also serves food. Found the bar to be a little loud, but we were able to head just outside the bar to a fireplace and talk with our friends we had not seen in awhile. The breakfasts there were phenomenal. All of us were pleased. (I loved the Eggs Chesapeake Benedict). Restaurants and stores within walking distance. Valet was $37 a night, but chose to leave the car there and walk or take a taxi depending on what we chose to do next. I would definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: Our room was on the street and yes at times it did get noisy but with all the activities during the...

I stayed at this hotel for my birthday weekend with my handsome man friend :) as soon as you walk in it's a nice set up. The staff is extremely friendly. Valet came up to $32 or $37 a night (they allow you to come and go as you please without extra charge). We stayed on the 3rd floor and had a room that over looked the DuPont circle along with the outdoor to the restaurant in the lobby, it was really a nice view (room 325). I have no complaints about the room. It was very clean modern and sexy. The bathroom is not very private as stated in previous reviews but for couples its perfect....The hotel gave me complimentary chocolate covered strawberries and champagne with a card (I thought this was so sweet) for my birthday. After dinner we ended up back at our hotel early. Stopped in at "Bar DuPont" and it was a very nice atmosphere....the staff was fast and extremely friendly. We sat down at a table. We didn't order any food but the drinks are strong and tasty....we sparked up a great convo with some locals who said that they come here often. The view is really nice.....and had it been nice enough out we could have sat outdoors which would have been perfect because of the location it's just a very nice location and the décor is really nice (just as pictured in the photos). We stayed in the bar until about 3:30 the staff was very friendly about letting us know it's time to go :) The next time we come to DC I will definitely want to come stay at this hotel again. The room is a little small but I was so inlove with the bathroom and view I didn't mind.

Spent four days touring area colleges and the hotel made for a great home base. Wonderful helpful staff. Great lively bar for people watching. Our room had lots of windows that actually open. Basic rooms are not large but well designed for comfort. The bathroom took some getting used to for reasons other reviewers stated. Perfect location for walking everywhere. Would certainly return

Great hotel, nice staff. The rooms are comfortable, the working space is excellent.
Breakfast is nice to enjoy, the restaurant has a nice streetview.
The price is not cheap but quality fits the price and location.
The bar is a hotspot in the evening. Will definately go there again.
Try to get a room on the outside. On the inside you only have a view (and noise) of the airco.

Room Tip: At the outside, otherwise you overlook the airco, wich makes some noise of the air blowing out.

On a quick 4 day getaway this hotel was great. The service was good. The bar/restaurant downstairs was nice. There are plenty of places nearby to provide options for dining. And there is also a nearby CVS for any "Oops, we forgot this" moments.

This was a quick trip to DC so that my partner of 16 years and I could get married...our home state of Florida doesn't allow it...yet. The Dupont Circle Hotel came highly recommended, and we were not disappointed. Amazing location, professional & attentive staff, and excellent accommodations.
