“Never Go Wrong With a Kimpton Hotel”
Reviewed 7 June 2012

The one thing that I've come to expect from a Kimpton property is excellent service, attention to detail and a dash of quirkiness. I wasn't disappointed by the Topaz.

Tucked in a residential street, the property is near Dupont circle. While not near the major tourist spots, it is a refreshing alternative to a big box hotel that prides itself on the quality of a guest's stay rather than the volume of guests that stay. The front desk staff was efficient, friendly and truly committed to make my stay enjoyable and productive.

Typical of a Kimpton, the rooms are large (especially for DC) with more than enough room to feel comfortable. Wonderfully comfortable beds are complimented by a generous sized couch and easy chair. The work station/desk was adequate, but did lack an appropirate number of outlets for the connected professional.

The bar staff was professional and knew me by name and recommended the "must eat" dishes from the restaurant. I wasn't disappointed.

Highly recommend the Topaz

We stayed for 3 nights in Washington just before Memorial Day & Topaz helped make it an excellent trip. The staff are efficient, friendly, helpful - faultless customer service. The room was spacious, decorated in a fresh modern style that made it feel light & airy. The bed was very comfortable, there was a nice sofa, desk, dressing area & all in a great, quiet location close to Dupont CIrcle. The KImpton In Touch program gives you free WiFi, which was really fast & not limited to one device unlike our previous hotel, the Four Seasons in Philadelphia. It also entitled us to a $10 mini bar credit which was much appreciated after 10 solid hours sight seeing on a hot day in Washington.

The staff genuinely are superb & made this a truly memorable stay - Thanks so much!

We stayed at Topaz for two nights on a visit to Washington with our 7 year old grandson. Our room was quite large with comfortable beds and very well decorated. The staff were incredibly friendly and accomodating and knew us by name.
We have only great things to say about Topaz and highly recommend the hotel. It is in a beautiful, quiet, safe residential area in the Dupont Circle area. On our next visit to the city we will definitely return to this hotel which exceeded all our expectations. It is a hidden gem!!

We were in DC seeing the sights, with the intent of spending the night somewhere then going to the National Zoo in the morning. Walking from the Ford Theatre to our car, we stopped in at Hotel Monaco (a Kimpton property), to check availability. Very friendly reception staff who, when told of our plans, suggested another Kimpton property closer to the zoo: the Topaz. GREAT spot in the midst of small embassies, next door to The Tabard Inn, which looked like a great place too. Reception and bar staff were very friendly and the room was great: king size bed with really comfortable bedding, huge bathroom, big closet, in-closet safe, nicely stocked mini-bar. Reception desk directed us to the Dirty Martini bar around the corner for happy hour, which had a good crowd, good drinks and all appetizers for $6. I'd recommend the Topaz to anyone who likes boutique hotels!

Room Tip: Our room was at the end of the hall on the 7th floor, so had a longer entrance hallway within the ro...

Hi Sunfire30,

Thanks for the great review! I love Happy Hour at Dirty Martini and I have lunch at Tabard a couple of times monthly. There are tons of options in the neiborhood. It's one of my favorite things about our location.

Hope to see you again soon!

This hotel came recommended and I glad that I booked it. The staff were super efficient and helpful. The room was large and well appointed and the bathroom was fantastic. WiFi in the room was also very fast and reliable.

The area is the main draw here and walking around was a joy...with loads going on and good places to eat within a 15 minute walk.

Would recommend this hotel and would definitely stay there again.

Hi Joma71,

Thanks for recommending Topaz to fellow travelers here on Tripadvisor. I'm glad you enjoyed exploring our neighborhood. I love the historic sites, restaurants, lounges, embassies, bars, art galleries, parks, shopping, ice cream shops, night clubs, and comedy club in our little corner of the Nation's Capital. Come back soon!

Thanks,

I have stayed at this hotel several times and it is always a pleasure. The rooms are comfortably hip with an eclectic mix of fun furniture and crazy color schemes. Such a nice change from the many shades of tan that most hotels go with. In addition if you join their email program, I can't remember the name, you get free WiFi and $10 towards the mini-bar. Free WiFi is huge to me and it's something so many hotels in this price range refuse to offer.
As far as the staff, they are great, I travel alone most of the time and the hotel is my home for that week, so a friendly staff goes a long way towards making it feel like home. So a big tip of the hat to Candiance, Mark and Kelly for their hospitality.
Long story short; great hotel, great people and great location.

Room Tip: Rooms in back will have some noise from trucks so if you're a light sleeper ask for higher floor...

I had booked this hotel for a special anniversary for my American pen-friend and I - for us to share our 60th 'anniversary' of writing to each other. Wow! What a great choice I made. We were made welcome from the very first second of our arrival, and were always called by name by the staff - which made us feel very special.
Our room had two Queen beds, a chaise lounge area, a dressing room and bathroom. And lovely views over the room tops to St. Matthews Cathedral.
The hotel itself is within easy reach of transport for tourist buses.
A lovely touch was a telephone call from reception, asking us to open our room door - and outside was a memeber of staff with a trolley with meats, cheeses, fruit, biscuits and sparkling water - all with the hotels compliments - plus - and SO special - an A4 sheet with the heading 1952 - 2012 - a special friendship - and then a list of memorable events over the past 60 years. Such a wonderful, personal touch.
This hotel is exceptional - and so is every single member of staff we met.
I would have absolutely NO hesitation in recommending The Topaz, and really hope to go there again soon.

Room Tip: Our room was on the 8th floor - and had lovely views over to St. Matthews Cathedral dome.
