Located a few blocks from DuPont Circle. Nice neighborhood, quiet street. Spacious room, modern bathroom and small kitchenette. Love the Kimpton hotels but room had odd window and a little dark. Walking distance to great local restaurants.

I always love staying at Kimpton Hotels, I think I've been to all their DC properties at this point. The Carlyle is great. The most perfect location, just a couple of blocks away from DuPont Circle, so you're close to great bars and restaurants. Never had to take an Uber the whole time I was in DC because I was...

I went to DC recently for a weekend with my grandchildren. I had a upgraded room, somewhat pricey, but not for Dupont Circle. The staff was fantastic- very kind and helpful. The only problem was the bathroom door. I know this sounds silly, but the door is a glass one, and has about 4-5 inch openings on the top and...

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Kimpton. Took advantage of the 5:00 happy hour. All staff were very helpful and generous. Wish we had more time at this beautiful location! Dog park around the corner was perfect. Many dog friendly places to eat as well. Thank you!!

This place was nice until I got my receipt and was double charged for my room. Also, instead of putting a hold on your card for incidentals, they charge you $100 and its takes weeks to get it back. Two other couples had this same problem last weekend. Either they need new software or they are consciously ripping people off....

Unfriendly service, no room heat (although they will bring a heater on request), dogs barking in the room next door, all beds have memory foam mattresses that don't seem to breathe and very big and bulky pillows. Makes it hard to have a good sleep. Rooms are a decent size and have lovely products and gorgeous kimono robes. Too bad...

Beautiful weekend in DC. Carlyle is in a great location close to good restaurants and stores. We dint try the hotel restaurant but understand it is very good. Love Kimton Hotels and this location is different. Boutique hotel with great staff. Pet friendly and very popular happy hour.
