I have just spent 7 nights at the Carlyle. I can only say good things. The staff on reception were terrific - friendly and welcoming and helpful to a first time Washington visitor. Anything I asked/needed they were always quick to attend to - if I needed a cab for example there was always someone to hail one as soon as I needed it. My room (8th floor corner) was spacious, two very comfortable double beds (not queen), nice sitting area, furnishings in very nice condition, small kitchenette (a kettle was the only thing missing for this Aussie - making cups of tea in the microwave a bit strange! but there was a coffee maker which was good), the bathroom is small but very adequate with good hot water pressure and had a nice powder room with good mirrors, seat etc. The decor is toward Art Deco in keeping with the age of the hotel. Breakfast was served in a lovely light conservatory style space with a good buffet selection of hot and cold food and fresh omlettes or waffles made to order. Plenty of fresh fruit salad. All for about $13 inc taxes. I did not eat dinner at the hotel so cannot comment. The hotel is an easy walk to Dupont Circle and the Metro. I was attending a conf at the Hilton which was an easy 7 min walk. Reception provides a map for you to follow so no trouble finding your way and the Carlyle is much more personable - I'd choose it over the Hilton any day. There are loads on cool restaurants within easy walk as well thru lovely brownstone streets. I would like to say thanks to Mediombu, David, Giovani, Bernadette and Dora among others for a great stay. Thoroughly recommend this hotel.
