Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My family and I visited DC for a long weekend to celebrate my mother-in-law. Our stay at the Lyle was nothing short of amazing. JOHNNY, the concierge, was the BEST! He treated my family like royalty. The hotel, restaurant and valet were 5 star. Johnny went above and beyond to make my kids and my handicap mother-in-law happy. The rooms were spacious and this was the only hotel to guarantee joined rooms. The food, drinks and Marcus at the restaurant did not disappoint. Thank you for a great experience. JOHNNY, YOU'RE AWESOME!

My boyfriend and I decided to stay at Lyle on a drive up to New York we saw they had no reviews because they just opened and we were very pleasantly suprised by the hotel. It has a luxury feel even though it is only selling at 100 dollars a night. The staff was great especially Taylor who gave us her card and invited us back to stay and was super helpful with a tv issue we had. It’s great to see such a young energetic staff at a beautiful hotel. If your looking for a new place to stay in DuPont Lyle is it

After researching modern hotels in D.C., my partner and I decided to give The Lyle a shot. We were both thoroughly impressed with the room layouts and clean minimal design aesthetics in the online pictures.

Thankfully, from the moment we arrived The Lyle our experience was nothing less than first-rate. We opted to use the valet parking out front as finding street parking around the hotel proved to be trickier than expected. The gentleman that parked our car was professional and courteous, which was much appreciated.

Johnny Pelzer was there at the front desk to greet us from the moment we arrived in the lobby. His warm hospitality made us feel at home immediately. First impressions are everything when checking in to a hotel and he did a great job of making sure our trip started off on a good note.

Once inside the room, we were relieved to find the online pictures fully representative. I'm very OCD when it comes to hotel rooms and so the fresh, clean, white bedding and towels gave me a sense of comfort. The room was also well-lit via natural and electrical lightning, another +1 for my OCD. If you're also obsessed with cleanliness, The Lyle will not disappoint.

The bathroom was also super clean and provided multiple lighting options.

Aside from the wonderful rooms, there is a restaurant and bar in the ground floor of the building. While we only tried the bar, we were very happy to strike up a conversation with Eric, one of the bartenders. He was friendly, funny, and overall added a memorable element to the hotel bar.

Our first stay was so good that we actually returned for a second trip only weeks later. I'm happy to say that the second time was just as enjoyable. We will be making The Lyle a regular destination for our staycations!

We heard from our son who lives near the Lyle that it had been recently renovated. I called to make reservations and was offered a reduced special rate when I asked if there were any discounts for various clubs that I'm a member. We received a computer reminder of our upcoming stay about 3 days prior to our reservation. This reminded me to make sure the room had a hair dryer. We requested a late check in because we had a late flight. Upon arrival the front desk staff was very pleasant and the same person who I had talked to about the hair dryer remembered us and checked us into our room.

Request a corner room they are work the few dollars more. The room was very clean. You do not have to go and search for the ice machine they will bring it to your room. The bed was very comfortable and the extra size of the corner room made it nicer to visit with people who came to visit.

This hotel has a bar/restaurant on the first floor. there is plenty of good eating places within a short walk. New Hampshire street is tree lined and very quiet. They offer valet parking if you have a car. We went without a car on this trip and used the public transportation and Uber to and from the airport.

Great hotel and very reasonably priced. The staff was very courteous. They even provided us with a small sewing kit and some bandage when the unexpected need happened.

Right from the beginning we had a very pleasant experience when staying at the Lyle. Upon arrival, someone was outside to valet park the car. He was extremely courteous and quick. When checking in, they were familiar with the reservation and even commented that the crib we requested was already upstairs and to please let them know if there was anything else needed for the baby. We stayed in the deluxe queen double with kitchenette, which was a wonderful size for three adults, a baby, and our small dog to celebrate our daughters first birthday. The room was beautiful and all items such as the dishes, sheets, robes, etc, were all of great quality and nicely chosen. Upon entering the room, the crib was there, but we noticed that the dog bed/bowl was not. I called down to the front desk and they had someone bring this up to us right away. The dog amenities were such a lovely touch. For dinner, we stopped down at the restaurant for a quick bite, where everyone was beyond accommodating with a 1 year old and continually offered to get anything I needed, smiled when passing, and made for a very easy going meal. Later on we re-visited the restaurant for a cocktail and dessert and to no surprise, we were impressed yet again. The staff not only made delicious cocktails, but they were extremely friendly and carried on great conversation. The next morning, we decided to go for an early drive around town and requested for our car from valet. While we unfortunately did not realize valet started at 7am (I believe?), the manager (Taylor), was extremely quick to jump in and offer to get the car herself for us - not something most managers would do at 6:30am. In addition to all of the lovely amenities and friendly employees, they also allowed us to check out late to allow the baby to get a morning nap in. Not once did we feel like a burden to anyone there, yet felt like they were eager and happy to make the stay for us memorable and easy going. I can't give them enough stars to explain how happy we were with our recent visit and experience. Thank you to Lyle and their team for making a weekend trip such a lovely one. We hope to be back soon!

The rooms were extremely comfortable, spacious, modern and well kept.
The hotel staff was very friendly, gave us good advice about the area and attentive to our requests. They promptly brought us ice when needed and an electric tea kettle when we requested it. There was no problem getting a quite late checkout (1PM) to suit our travel needs. Johnny up front was great.

My family's four day stay was warm and very comfortable. This completely redone hotel, set in a quiet community of charming period architecture, offered accommodations and service that wonderfully fit the character of neighborhood. It's attached bar and restaurant reflected a designers careful attention to detail coupled with a small but well prepared menu of offerings. I'd advise reserving a suite, however a pleasant stay is in store for anyone in search of something moderately priced but truly special.

We couldn’t be more pleased with our stay at the Lyle. Our family of four enjoyed a room which connected to another family members room and the setup was great. The rooms are nicely designed with lots of natural light. The service was stellar, from guest services to the valet. Special shout out to Johnny who ran the front desk who ensured we had all we needed and even gifted us a celebratory bottle of sparkling wine to celebrate a birthday. The restaurant was also great as was the in room dining. All this in a quiet and charming residential neighborhood. A+ to the Lyle. We’ll be back.

Lyle Washington DC

Washington DC

Luxury boutique hotel

796668177

My family of 4 had the pleasure of staying at the Lyle DuPont Circle in June 2021 during an east coast tour which included visits to D.C., NYC and Boston. The Lyle was one of our favorite hotels! It is a new luxury boutique hotel with spacious and squeaky clean rooms, high-end Art Deco finishes, and a super friendly staff. Great location within walking distance of lively restaurants. Their restaurant, Lyle’s, was surprisingly excellent. It ended up being one of our favorite meals beating out some highly reviewed NYC restaurants. Their broccolini, burrata, pork loin and soft serve were phenomenal; breakfast was top-notch too. Staying here felt like being in a home away from home but way better. 5+ stars

My husband and I had such a great stay at Lyle! I planned an anniversary “staycation” at the new hotel and was not disappointed. We got the “Summer of Lyle” package. It included valet parking, breakfast in bed, and a free welcome drink at the bar.

Once we arrived, we were promptly greeted by the valet. They were so polite and always said hello and goodbye when we came in and out. Checkin was quick and breezy and the front desk was so helpful in any questions we had. We got to our room and it was very clean and they had a complementary bottle of champagne and chocolate cake waiting for us to go kick off our anniversary.

The beds were incredibly comfortable with plenty of TV channels. The bathroom was nice, clean and spacious. I loved how the soap and hair products weren’t sample sized and they smelled really good. We had our complimentary beverages our second night and they were great! We didn’t have any of their signature cocktails but we saw some go out and they looked amazing.

And lastly, the neighborhood was so great. It was nice and quiet but still bustling during the day. The hotel is surrounded by restaurants within a walking distance and there is always something to do. We wanted to go to DuPont Underground but didn’t get the opportunity.

Thank you Lyle for an amazing little get away for me and my husband! You made our anniversary so fun.
