Super convenient location, nice renovated room, friendly staff. Even had free holiday cookies in lobby each afternoon. Lots of shops and restaurants in neighborhood. Short metro ride to all the downtown attractions.

Nice hotel. Kind staff. Food decent and relatively well-priced. Decent sized rooms for an older hotel. Staff should be more knowledgeable about the area and about what will keep their guests safe. As part of The Doyle Collection, I did expect a bit more, but, The Dupont will not disappoint.

Briefly stated this hotel is a unique, semi modern, clean boutique hotel in the perfect location in DC. Very kind staff, comfortable beds, new bathrooms, and located only one block from the metro. Centrally located near restaurants and shopping. Probably a 20 min walk to The White House. I'll certainly stay here again.

We have both just recently stayed here for a long weekend stay from the UK, the hotel very central for the many of the attractions of Washington DC or just a small metro ride away. The receptionist upon arrival was very warm and helpful to us, a quick check in and clear instructions. However the hotel even though we had requested gave us a room with 2 single beds, we went back to reception and within minutes were given a alternative double room.
The room was adequate for a traveller, however for us as a couple not alot of hanging space, the bed had seen better days (sagging in the middle), no coffee or tea facilities (however free coffee and tea in reception area every morning). Bathroom fine underfloor heating the shower ok, mini bar and free bottled water. Maybe just looked a bit tired to us?. However the main bar was wonderful very knowledgeable guys and service outstanding!.
We would definitely recommend this hotel!.

Cafe Dupont has the best service and like most said not only here in DC but everywhere. Honest staff and it is great to know that they take the extra mile to know our favourite drinks and would do anything to meet our needs. I recommend, Diogenes the restaurant's manager for his impeccable service. Keep that going man. Everything here is just beyond excellent. I would stay here again whenever I visit DC. Breakfast was good and choices were varied. I reckon this place would make a great venue for locals as a staycation because of the central spot in DC.

We are consistently impressed each time we dine at Cafe Dupont at the Dupont Circle Hotel. The service is among the very best that we have ever experienced, not only in DC, but anywhere we have visited. An excellent example of this is server Ryan who makes each of our visits to the restaurant a memorable and fun experience by his great personality and certain small perks, such as remembering our favorite drinks, and other personal preferences of ours. Diogenes, the restaurant's manager, has a simliar outgoing and personable style which clearly trickles down to his staff members to make the dining experience a wonderful one. We always enjoy kindly being welcomed back by various other restaurant staff members, like Manny, Gladys, and Elio, for example, during each visit who know us now by name. The restaurant's culture makes us feel as part of the family instead of just customers who are coming in to eat. The focus of this review has been on the staff and service of the restaurant. This is because we believe that many restaurants serve excellent food, as Cafe Dupont truly does, but the service is an equal part of the experience for us. The food menu changes seasonably and includes a wide variety of selections, each of which are fantastic and of utmost quality, with a fine attention to detail by their excellent Chef. We look forward to our next visit.

The hotel is perfectly located on Dupont Circle and the metro station. The outside of the hotel is nothing special but the interior (I guess) recently refurbished. The room with a modern interior was very nice and clean. The service by staff was very good. Delicious breakfast with many choices.
