“Nice serviced apartments”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

A small kitchen made this an excellent option as for a change from a hotel. Obviously other guests don't use the kitchen so often as we had to call the maintainence man three times to fix a blown fuse and 2 elements that did not work. But he came quickly and repaired everything very quickly. The other staff were also very helpful and friendly.

Good location about 20 minutes from the White House in a nice leafy suburb.

Great location....we could even walk to the White House!! Rooms are huge, with a small kitchenette with microwave crockery etc. Shower recess is modern, and large. Everything a little old and worn but beautifully clean and maintained. Bar and restaurant is a lovely and relaxing area, food very good and fairly priced. Some beautiful homes surround, 1 minute from restaurants, Safeway etc. Felt very comfortable and safe walking as is in the Embassy area.
Staff extremely helpful...service fantastic as all staff friendly and willing to make an effort!

Ideally located near DuPont Circle and the metro, though we walked to most of the main sights. We emailed room preferences in advance and got no reply. Having said that staff were helpful. Rooms were comfortable and nice big shower in our room. However rooms and hotel look a bit tired. The kitchenette in the room was handy, but the stove didn't really get hot, there was no kettle and the fridge didn't really cool anything - milk we had bought went off overnight. Overall the hotel did the job and so can't complain - well not too much.

I stayed at the Carlyle 2 nights for a conference and could not be more pleased. The room was large with a small kitchenette. The bathroom was spotless with a large shower and great Green hair and lotion products. The bed was unbelievably comfy! I wanted to take it home with me! The location was perfect with just a short 5-8 minute walk to the metro and DuPont circle. I was alone and felt very safe.

We really enjoyed our 5 day stay in Washington and this hotel helped make it fun. Only complaint, no bathtub. Someone could fix the kitchen cupboards so there is a drawer. The neighborhood is lovely with lots of restaurants. After a long day of sightseeing it was fun to spend some time in the bar. great margaritas. The staff were always ready to make recommendations and give directions.

My 90-year old mother and I were in DC to visit my son and the museums. We loved this distinctive and lovely hotel. We had a nice lunch and cocktail at the restaurant. The room was great; as some have mentioned the bathroom is small, but it has an outer mirrored space as well for cosmetics, toiletries, and whatever. If you are depending on cabs, you may want to leave a little time. Usually we got one promptly but it is a somewhat quiet street so there may be a little wait.

What a fab location! We couldn't really fault this hotel! We had a comfortable stay! If you are looking for a great hotel in an upbeat neighbourhood then I can recommend the Carlyle! It's a very safe area with lots of eating places and shops within a short walking distance! As well as the Metro very accessible too!
