“Outstanding Hotel”
Reviewed 17 September 2012

My wife and I just spent our 33rd anniversary at the Dupont Circle Hotel and had a wonderful time. Our room was small ( to be expected) but very comfortable and great shower. The restaurant and lounge were also excellent. The entire staff were excellent and took care of all our needs. We will return soon.

We stayed there early September 2012. The DuPont Circle hotel is very well situated on the lively and pleasant circle, surrounded by restaurants and shops, and on the red subway line.
The overall appearance of both the common parts and of the rooms is very good and modern. The rooms are nice, but a little smallish.
The staff is very professional and helpful. The restaurant and terrace offers food of good quality. Only the extremely noisy bar us to be avoided.
To be recommended if available at the right price. We paid an average of 210$ plus tax per night excluding breakfast which is a bit high but the pleasant location makes it worth.

Room Tip: A room on the patio would be better for noise.

The strongest positive factor is an excellent location, right on Dupont Circle surrounded by restaurants, bars, bookstores, a drugstore, etc. and next to the Metro Red Line. Had a Deluxe Room on 8th floor w/ large (unable to open) windows that gave room a nice feel (but shutters didn't block all light and couldn't all be open at once). Other positives included free internet, easy to access outlets, complimentary water bottles, in-room safe, nice toiletries, and comfortable bed. TV wall-mounted w/ terrific picture quality (but immovable and placed directly above desk making it awkward to eat/work and watch). On the down side, room layout uncomfortable. Closet was small/cramped, w/ no room to store suitcase and luggage rack blocked access to safe. Drawers were at a minimum although open shelves in closet. The minibar allowed no room to put any small personal item like a yogurt that needed to remain chilled. Recessed lighting looked nice but no light at all over desk and bathroom lighting made applying makeup a challenge. After 3 days, still not used to the fact that the bathroom and sleeping area are not really separate and only a frosted half-wall divides sink area from bed. The toilette was separated from sink with a frosted glass door that had a small gap and it felt like there was no privacy. Shower also had half frosted wall and no curtain so water sprayed onto floor and temp could not be adjusted prior to stepping in. Complimentary USA Today not delivered to door as described, although papers were available in lobby if you got down there soon enough. Strangely, there is no expedited checkout. I tried to prepay the personal portion of my bill tonight so the balance in the morning could go directly to the corporate account without confusion and not only was I not allowed to, I was told that guests have to personally come by the front desk to checkout so that the hotel staff would know that the room was actually vacated. Seriously? Yup, guests apparently are not trusted to call down to say they are leaving or just drop off keys on the way out. Super inconvenient when trying to make a morning meeting or catch a flight. So, the rooms are clean and the location is great but if someplace else is available, I will choose it next trip.

Room Tip: If a light sleeper, avoid the rooms facing the street where there is not only routine traffic noise...

I would love to come back and stay here. I first found this place on Trip Advisor. It is located dead center of Dupont Circle. Noise level is surprisingly low. Service was great. They even had heated floor tiles for the bathroom. Although the room was a bit small, the big bath towels made up for it (they were the size of beach towels)! I got a deal to stay here for half the price on travel ticker. Beds were comfy. The only draw back was that there aren't traditional curtains, only french blinds so the sun peeked in during the morning forcing you to wake up!

Stayed here for a mother daughter weekend- the hotel has an excellent safe central location and is surrounded by great restaurants. The Metro is 2 blocks away and you can be at the museums or in 'Georgetiwn in 15 minutes. You can even walk if you are ambitious. The Metro takes you to the Reagan Airport in less than half an hour, which is cheaper and just as quick as a cab drive.
The rooms are modern and pleasant. They are definately a step up from a Marriot or the like. The staff is pleasant and very helpful. We would definately come back.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor for a quieter room.
