“Pleasant stay, great location, excellent staff.”
Reviewed 10 December 2010

We wanted to stay in the Dupont Circle area on a recent trip, and the Topaz looked like a nice place to try. The rate we got over the web was good as well (for DC standards). It is on a pleasant street, with easy access to the Metro and restaurants. We are walkers, so for us the trek to the mall was a pleasant walk. The room was nice, althought the bathroom could use some better lights. There is a house computer with web access free only for boarding passes, otherwise it is by credit card. There is wifi, but we didn't have a laptop, and thought the charge for the computer was odd. Also, for us, the hotel looked way better in person that we web pictures. The web makes it look more new agey than it it. Most importantly, we have never been in a hotel where the staff was so entirely pleasant and helpful. All of them that we met were fantastic. This would be my first choice next visit.

Room was nice and the street is quiet, so it's a good place to sleep. The hotel is going to be renovated and it needs it, especially all the public spaces. The lobby/reception and bar/restaurant are way too cramped and not comfortable. Staff was ok, depending on who was at the desk. Staff at breakfast was pretty minimal in terms of service and atmosphere. Breakfast was overpriced. Location is handy to most of downtown DC.

Dear SawtoothinAmsterdam,

Thank you for visiting Topaz on your recent business trip to Washington, DC. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed restful sleep during your stay with us and we are truly excited as we begin to give the hotel a really comprehensive refresh. I'm terribly sorry to hear that the level of care you received from our team was inconsistent. Certainly, this is not the manner in which we aspire to treat our guests. Your experience has been reviewed with our team to ensure that there are no gaps in our service delivery moving forward. We sincerely hope to have you return to enjoy the "new look" Topaz on your next trip to our nation's capital.

Warm Regards,

Donte Johnson

I wanted to get away for the night with my girlfriend and Dog and I was pleasantly surprised on this hotel (Topaz). Small in size but big in Customer Service and that’s what makes a difference for a seasoned traveler like myself. Liked it so much I plan on doing my Birthday Party in a few weeks at the Lounge. I recommend this hotel.

The Topaz is truly a special hotel. You'll find more luxurious places, but few could equal the service and warmth of the Topaz. The common areas are a bit small, but the staff is so friendly and welcoming that you don't really notice. The rooms are good-sized for Washington and very comfortable. The entire hotel has a quirky, modern feel, with just enough interesting touches to make it unique but not over-the-top. We stayed there with several friends and family members for our wedding in DC, and all of the staff members went out of their way to make the experience memorable, including a congratulatory bottle of champagne on our wedding night. One family member with mobility problems realized she could not use the bathroom in the regular room, and even though the hotel was very busy they managed to get her a new room almost immediately. We enjoyed bantering with the front desk personnel, and after a few days they knew us by name. We picked this hotel in part because it was centrally located for sightseeing in Washington for our wedding guests, but we ended up just coming back to the hotel in the evenings after dinner and sitting in the bar for drinks and conversation because the atmosphere was so charming. I truly can't say enough about our experience at the Topaz, and I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Stayed here on a recent business trip to DC. I have stayed in other Kimpton hotels, so I was really expecting to like the Topaz. The good: comfortable bed; quiet room; close to Dupont Circle. The not so good: Expensive relative to other similar DC hotels; decor, while typical of Kimpton hotels, seemed a little tired and in need of a freshening; room layout was odd; room was tidy, but seemed like it needed a deep cleaning.

I know this is a popular hotel, but I feel there are better hotels in the Dupont Circle area for a similar rate.

Dear texastech,

We truly appreciate you staying with us and taking a moment to share your experience on Tripadvisor.com. It was great to be able to share your compliments about the comfort and cleanliness of the hotel with our housekeeping team. And, I'm excited to inform you that our renovation, which will begin in just a few days, will give the hotel sleek new look and will surely address the concerns raised about the decor in your review. Thanks again for carving out a little time to post a review and we'd love to have you return to Topaz in a few months to see the new design.

Sincerely,

Donte Johnson

Staff at Topaz were extremely accomodating. Any request made was honored without any problem. Hotel is clean, not luxurious, but extremely comfortable. Free wine tastings every night. Great location right near Dupont Circle.

Front desk staff warm and welcoming. Chilled a bottle of bubbly overnight in their fridge , and tagged it for easy ID, so it was properly cold for our tailgate the next day.

The staff could not have been more pleasant or helpful. The location worked out well for us. The decor was a refreshing change from the usual. We would definitely stay there again.
