Warm ambience, warm receptionist, always ready to help!, level of cleanliness was overwhelming! in a nutshell quality of service is impeccable!!

I enjoyed every moment I spent there and was indeed value for my money. My Husband and ! were there for 2 weeks!!

I would recommend the place for anyone going that way.

Outstanding hotel conveniently located close to Dupont circle and the metro. The rooms which have been recently renovated are beautiful. The service was outstanding. I would like to extend a special thanks to Mediombo. He went above and beyond to meet our every need. I would not hesitate to recommend the Carlyle Suites to anyone looking to stay in Washington DC seeking a beautiful hotel, conveniently located with outstanding service at a reasonable price.

We stay at the Carlyle Suites when we go to Washington DC. We visit friends in the city quite frequently and this is our favorite place to stay. Karen the manager is very kind and always concerned about the quality of our stay. The rooms are clean and decorated nicely. Our dog loves to visit as well. The location is great for resturants and a cab ride away from DC sites. The staff is always friendly and willing to help.

We have been concerned about the change in the parking policy. The hotel now charges for parking. The cost is quite high for the parking (close to $40.00/night). It is very difficult to find parking on the street and there are no garages close by.

Room Tip: We have never had a bad suite at Carlyle Suites. All rooms are very comfortable and clean.

We are just about to check out from our quick 1 day stay, visiting one of our children who lives/works in DC. We were offered a reasonably priced upgrade to a suite before arrival and took it. Of all of the "luxury" hotels in which we have stayed throughout the US this will be one of our favorites. The accommodations were superb. The service from every single employee was genuine and friendly. The overall cost (though perhaps high for some) was a great value. The location is fantastic.Huge thanks to sylvin the night guy who make my husband safe and happy by saying to us "welcome home".those two worlds was welcome to us the night we checked in and we appreciate all his help. We WILL return here on every future trip to DC.

Our room was lovely and spacious with 2 queen beds and a pullout sofa bed. The small kitchenette was handy, although we ate at the beautiful local restaurants just a block away. The staff were extremely friendly and recommended the restaurants, and also phoned and made "VIP" reservations for our family of 5 (the kids thought this was fantastic…being called VIP's).
The location was great, a short walk from the Dupont Circle metro.
Overall we had a lovely 3 night stay in DC and would highly recommend Carlyle Suites for both comfort and location.
