Dupont Circle is not what is used to be. It is not funky anymore, many vacant commercial space and you have to work to find good food. Not just a noisy slap-it-on-the-grill steak terrace, but simple honest food. And it gets real noisy on friday night, perhaps saturdays also, so I recommand you think again about this location.
The room was impeccable, though generic. You don't get the boutique feeling in this joint, despite the price. Overall, the staff was friendly and kuddos to the bell staff.

I recently stayed here for two nights for a vacation. Overall, it was a very nice hotel. The staff was very nuclear, helpful, and accommodating. The rooms were a bit on the small side, but this didn't bother us as we were in the room very little. Would note that the bathroom in the room was not at all separated from the bedroom...was only about 5 feet from the bed and there was no door,just a glass panel. Would not be able to stay in the rooms w anyone except people you are very close with. I did like this hotel, but you can find more reasonably priced options and have just as nice of a hotel experience.

My husband and I began a weekend in Annapolis with a couple of days in DC on the front end, and chose the Dupont Circle Hotel based on the location. The location alone is truly a selling point - right near the Metro and walking distance to loads of good restaurants - but the hotel itself was wonderful. The service and friendliness from the moment we walked in was a nice welcome and the rooms were great. I believe our room was an entry-level room but the space was very well appointed - great amenities including a heated floor in the bathroom which was legitimately one of my favorite features. I guess I never knew what I was missing!

All in all, a fantastic hotel. We happened to get a good rate on our room, but even at full price I think this is a great option within DC's hotel landscape. We'd stay here again during another trip to DC!

There are many things that I like about this hotel. Courtesy at the reception, perfect cleaning conditions (spotless-believe me), position, and soft elegant style.
A few things, really small things, that I did not like: the noise of the room because of its position with respect to the street, and the air conditioner.
I stayed for two nights, so I did not bother asking for a change. However, the air conditioner was deadly noisy, and I had to turn it completely off. The noise from the traffic is probably to expect. I was there for work, and was up at night and early AM getting ready for meetings and taking phone calls and emails. Next time I will ask a quieter room (different position) if I am there to relax.

Room Tip: Ask for a quite room if you are there for vacation and want to sleep.

i stayed two nights on business (conference). at the conference rate, i'd rate the hotel very good, but i'd have been less sanguine if i'd paid the rack rate. staff was friendly and helpful when i interacted and unobtrusive the rest of the time. the light was out in the bathroom and some of the caulk was peeling away from the bathroom floor. the exercise room is a bit dim, but the equipment was adequate and well-maintained. the post-conference hors d'ouvres were quite good.
