We found this dog friendly hotel through Bringfido.com which gave it a high review rating. This hotel is very clean and the staff is extremely friendly. They welcome medium to small sized dogs, most of the rooms on our floor seemed to have a dog yet it was very quiet. I even had room service clean the room while our dog was in the room; I left my cell phone number in case of any problems and surprisingly received no call. They have a great restaurant which also is in charge of the buffet breakfast and was the best that I have ever tasted. This hotel is right within walking distance to the DuPont Circle and the DuPont Historical District. We will definitely go back again.

We stayed at this hotel a few years ago while visiting DC and was very pleased with the room and the wonderful staff. We went again over the 4th of July holiday and had another wonderful stay. The room was kept very nice (the kitchen is a plus), the staff was all very friendly, and it is very close to many restaurants and the subway. Only downfall is the parking, but you will find that anywhere in DC.....we was lucky to find street parking and did not have to park in a garage for a fee.

First off, just to get it out there, the hotel itself was very nice overall.

Room:

The room was clean and well lit. Small kitchenette with fridge and sink was a nice touch, esp with kids. Bed was very roomy (king), and couch rolled out into a bed. TV did not work upon arrival, but it was fixed promptly. Some lights did not work, but we were out on the town mainly, so it was not a huge deal for us. Bathroom was very modern, and clean. Service desk staff was attentive to our needs.

Area:

Proximity was somewhat close to the city. It's located in the heart of a residential area. You can drive or take a train (or bus) to the city. I don't recommend walking in the summer (it was about 95-98 degrees when we visited). It's not a long walk, but in the heat.......eh. It's very close (or just about within) Dupont Circle, which is very cool esp early evening! There are parks for the kids, etc, as well as the usual restaurants and bars.

Parking:

Good luck!! Parking was horrendous! The hotel offers a handful of parking spots (8-10 MAYBE, shared with another building). Good luck with street parking too. Spent a few hours driving around the area to find a spot. Finally found one here or there, but between the meters and tickets, etc....again- good luck! Once you get a good spot, you may want to leave your vehicle there for the duration of your trip. Seriously.

Since I am not rating DC and only the hotel itself, this should suffice. Bottom line, hotel was very nice for the $$ - just need to think about your parking strategy before planning your trip.

Excellent stay in DC, very friendly hotel staff, room was large enough to fit family of 4, kitchenette had everything including a Keurig coffee machine with K-cups, bathroom was well appointed and featured a small vanity/dressing area. Last but not least, the TempurPedic mattress was heavenly! Hotel is in a wonderful area, within walking distance to Metro, stores and restaurants. Definitely best hotel choice in Dupont Circle.

We chose Carlyle Suites Hotel based on reviews on Trip Advisor and other sites. The place in fabulous. It is located in the heart of the vibrant Dupont Circle neighborhood - super convenient to great restaurants, metro, and easy bike ride to downtown. Taxi ride to downtown was $8 - easier and just as cheap as riding the Metro. Service at Carlyle was top notch - attentive and professional. Our little dog was welcomed without question and there is a dog park 1 block away - perfect! Very dog friendly neighborhood. Parking on site is free if you can get it. If not, parking on the street is easy and free on the weekends. The Carlyle has an excellent breakfast/brunch for $15 - the going rate for a real breakfast and theirs is quite good - omelettes, waffles, and OJ made fresh. Yum! We got a great weekend rate of $101 per night for a 2 double suite with kitchenette and breakfast nook. You can easily prepare small meals/snacks "at home" if you are so inclined - room includes stove top, small fridge, microwave, dishes, cookware, coffee pot. Really a great set up! We felt right at home. The beds were super comfy and thought the bathroom was a little small, we didn;t find it to be inconvenient for 2 adults and an 11 year old child. Overall, our stay was really wonderful. I would definitely stay at the Carlyle again!

Room Tip: A double room (two queens) deluxe with kitchen suite was $101 per night for weekends and $89 for wee...
