We arrived very tired from a flight from Dublin. All I can say the welcome and service we received throught our stay was brilliant. To Niamh, Siobhan on the Front Desk to Shane in the bar, nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: We had a lovely room overlooking the Circle.

I contacted Dupont Circle Hotel in early February to see if they had a place near the circle where I could propose to my girlfriend on Valentine’s day. The staff was unbelievably friendly and accommodating. By the time we had arrived at the hotel, I felt like I had known the staff for years and they were almost as excited as I was about it all! They arranged access to the penthouse balcony for us, which overlooked the circle where I first met my now fiancée and even helped record the special moment for us. I cannot thank them enough. My fiancée absolutely loved it and I know we’ll always look back fondly at just how perfect the whole experience was. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Dupont Circle. In addition to the incredible and caring staff, the location is unbeatable (located right on the circle and within walking distance of everything you want or need), the interior and atmosphere are chic and modern, and the amenities were top notch. Stay here if you can!

So, let me start this review out by saying that if I could give this hotel infinite stars I would. It was my son`s 18th birthday, so we booked the hotel, however, we booked online so only a standard room and a deluxe room were available at the time. We checked in around 8 pm after a birthday dinner. The hotel was impeccable, location was prime. We were the only guests waiting in line, while the Front Desk associate was helping another guest, someone else saw we were waiting and immediately came to assist us.A wonderful associate by the name of Siobhan helped us with check in. When we checked in, we asked to be upgraded to a suite, however, the hotel was booked and none was available. We were satisfied with our deluxe room, but then Siobhan checked again, and she was like O you are going to be very happy, that was an understatement, she upgraded us to a penthouse suite at no extra charge. My son was ecstatic and so were we!!!! Service from the doorman, to every hotel personnel was flawless. Siobhan went above and beyond and exceeded our expectations. The hotel was gorgeous, service was exemplary, and Siobhan, well, she took my breath away!!!! I am so incredibly grateful to her for her customer service excellence. This is such a milestone birthday and we will always remember what Siobhan did, my son was beyond happy!!!! Thank you so very much again to all at The Dupont Circle Hotel for making our stay so memorable. Here on out, this is the only hotel I`m booking in the DC area!!! Repeat, satisfied customers for LIFE!!!! Keep up the wonderful work!!!! Am considering booking the Penthouse Space for son`s upcoming graduation party!!!!With much gratitude, Ramola

Room Tip: The Penthouse level has their own lobby. Rooms are impeccably clean, stylish, large, beautiful and c...

Whenever I visit Washington DC i look at a lot of different hotels and sometimes choose others, but the Dupont is a great hotel, in a great location with lots of interesting restaurants nearby.
Then add the nearby access to the Metro and reasonable cab prices to places to see.
The prices seem to be reasonable on weekends, but can be pricy during week days.

We recently stayed here on a 3 day stop en route to new york. Check in was flawless and the reception provided us with a list of nearby eateries plus maps. Complimentary tea and coffee was served in the foyer from 7- 930. We stayed in room 205 and it was lovely. This room is at the front and has shutters over the windows. Some light still peeps through but they kindly provide sleep masks which really help if you are a light sleeper. The rooms were cleaned impeccably.Would recommend and would return.

I stayed at the hotel for 6 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. The location is excellent; close to the metro and there are plenty of great restaurants nearby.

The staff are incredibly helpful and efficient and the restaurant has great food (if a tad expensive).

The room was kept spotless and was properly cleaned each day.

The only thing I didn't like about the hotel was that there are wooden shutters rather than blinds. Unfortunately, these shutters let in quite a bit if light, even when fully shut, which I found made it slightly difficult to get to sleep. Also, as other reviews have mentioned, there is quite a bit of noise at night and first thing in the morning. But for such a central location, the noise could be much worse ( and I was staying over the St Patrick's Day weekend.

I would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it to others.

Clean, modern rooms with great beds and very quiet add to the hotel's great location in one of the most dynamic neighborhoods in Washington DC. The Dupont Circle Hotel is centrally located, within a block of the Metro, steps away from the park, bookstore, and restaurants of every type. The hotel bar and restaurant are happening places with great, reasonably priced food and drink. Can't say enough about the professionalism and service of the entire staff. Greeted at the front door by Greg who's smile was infectious. Siobhan helped with our every need and Cole's outstanding service made our stay over the top. Would highly recommend the Dupont Circle Hotel to anyone wanting a great DC experience!

Room Tip: Stayed in room 716 and loved it. Sunny with view of the park.
