I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and appreciated the location - quiet neighbourhood although one evening there was party noise coming from downstairs through kitchenette window, would be good to have a door to the kitchenette. It's a short walk to Dupont Circle and subway an walking distance to downtown. The bed was comfortable and I liked how...

We spent 10 days visiting our kids in DC over Thanksgiving and our suite at the Carlyle was perfect, especially for such a long stay. Plenty of room for sleeping, eating and lounging. The staff was courteous and always helpful. The location is terrific; close to restaurants, shopping, sight-seeing, etc. Add to this the very reasonable cost and you have...

We chose the Carlyle after looking through several options in the Gay-friendly area of Dupont Circle. For the price, I expected something nice, but small. We were pleasantly surprised to find a generously sized room. The layout of our King suite helped us each to have our own space. The small kitchenette was another bonus. The location was perfect for...

Stayed at the Carlyle in November 2013 and I have to say it was pretty good. Inexpensive and with the layout of Washington (i.e. little enclaves of stores and restaurants) once you worked out where you were then it was a great location. Handy little laundry and friendly staff.
