“Art Deco Heaven”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Carlyle Suites Hotel is a visual delight - shiny black, pink and chrome - an Art Deco lovers delight. Rooms were amazing - everything you could possibly wish for and the staff were very helpful, pleasant and polite.

The hotel itself is situated in the heart of washington close to everything you will need. It is a beautifully presented art deco hotel with an amazing lobby and bar. The rooms were very clean and well presented. However, what really makes this hotel is the truly amazing staff. So warm and friendly and really could not do enough to help you.

I can not recommend this hotel highly enough and would definitely stay at this hotel again. We had such a great stay here 10 out of 10

Thank you

We were with friends on a road trip for a week, which included Washington, D.C. We found out about the Carlyle Suites on Trip Advisor and are so glad we did! From the moment we stepped into the hotel until the moment we left, the staff, ambience, room layout and cleanliness, etc. was unbelievable. Combine that with an absolutely beautiful and walkable area and you pretty much can't ask for anything else! The four of us will definitely return to the Caryle on our next trip to Washington. Thank you again. :)

Finally some down time to review this quaint hotel. Treated like royalty upon arrival from valet to front desk staff, especially Abou. Friendly, great personality, multi-lingual and excellent customer service. Same outstanding service from Dora, the morning breakfast cashier. I think her name was Dora. ...

The room was very clean, had a kitchenette, sort of an Art Deco décor, but did not seemed dated. The walk in shower was excellent.

Simon the manager, always seemed to be around with a smile and customer service ready.

Cant complain...except I wished there was a water bottle in the room, for my morning vitamins...other than that...excellent a hidden jewel in the DuPont circle area. Just walkable to best restaurants in town. By the way, went to dine at FLORIANA'S ITALIAN. wow...the best risotto, linguine, mussels...etc...etc...

Booked the Carlyle Suite Hotel through Southwest Airlines for our trip to attend the 50th Anniversary of March on Washington (August 28th).
The hotel was great. Our room was neat as could be. The bed very comfortable. Our suite had a kitchenette, dinning area, sitting/bed area and a very nice bath area. We felt the Carlyle Suites provided an excellent accommodation for the money.
Bernadette at the front desk provided exceptional service and made us most welcome.
The hotel just three blocks northeast of Dupont Circle On New Hampshire Ave. The Dupont Circle Metro stop was convenient for our getting to the National Mall and the various memorials. It was also convenient to many fine dinning establishments on 17th Street between R & Q Aves.
If and when we return to our Nations Capital we would stay again at the Carlyle Suites!

Room Tip: We were on the first floor and a friend from Cleveland also stayed at Carlyle Suites, he was on the...

Nice quiet, leafy street among many of the smaller embassies - but it is only a 2 minute walk to Dupont Circle and all the restaurants and nightlife there. The hotel staff was unfailingly polite and helpful. The room in my case (a double queen) was not really a "suite" in that there was not a seperate room - but it did have a kitchenette area and a little wall table - ostensibly for dining I guess. But the room temperature was controllable, there was plenty of hot water and water pressure, and the room seemed very clean. There was a safe in the closet, ironing board, extra blankets. Very comfortable beds- add to this what I think was an excellent nightly rate. - NOTE - I did not drive a car here - saw they had a valet out front but heard that was expensive.

I had to work on business in D.C. and stayed here one night. Looks like this hotel has been around for some time. Had a "old" charm to it. The room was fairly big but it had sort of a damp smell to it. Had a small kitchen area if you needed to cook. I did not but the small fridge was great for water. There was a sofa bed in the room. It was ok. What makes this hotel is the location near Dupont Circle which is quite charming which shops, cafes, restaurants near by. Beautiful townhomes and a Dog Park near by. Metro is also pretty close. I gave it the 4th star on location alone.

One negative thing could be - getting a cab in the morning could be challenging. You may need to wait 10-15 minutes but they do eventually pass by!
