Reviewed 28 September 2013

I love this place! I spent my Labor Day weekend here and had a wonderful stay. The location was terrific: one block from a major metro stop. Its also a stop on the big red bus tour (a must for sightseeing).

My favorite part was the friendly front desk staff. They were always smiling, always helpful, and took the time to give me tips on what to see and what to avoid.

The bar is great for chilling with a cold drink after a long afternoon and just gazing at the foot traffic of Dupont Circle outside.

The rooms are very tastefully decorated and the bed was as good as any I have tried at the big chain hotels. My only complaint was that due to the layout of the hotel (in a V shape) all internal rooms overlook a central room area so the view is not so great. however, I didn't come to D.C. to sit in my room to stare out the window anyway.

For location and value this hotel was definitely worth then price: they're always running deals on the travel search engines, and it is literally a 15/20 minute metro ride from Reagan Nat`l Airport.

I will definitely stay here again on my next visit. Give it a look if you're planning a trip to D.C. soon!

To begin, the Dupont Circle hotel has a great location. Whether you are on business or a tourist, it is walking/metro distance to all the main attractions in DC. There is a red line metro stop steps from the hotel. Our suite was large and spacious and the decoration was minimalist yet modern. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was large and great products. We also enjoyed the random selection of books on the bookshelves. Our room had a view directly to the circle which was lovely. The front desk staff was very friendly and accomodating as well. We did not have drinks at the Cafe Dupont, but it looked pretty happening. There are many restaurants and bars to chose from in the area.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing Dupont Circle. If you're staying on a Sunday, check out the Dupont Circle...

Frankly, bathrom with glass wall, no privace, is not for me. If you are alone, could be but with couple or family it does not work. Also, the windows do not close the light and can receive sun ligth in your face 6am. Regarding breakfast, try starbuck acrros the street

I have stayed with Hotel Dupont a few times, and keep coming back due to the excellent service and beautiful rooms. From the moment I enter the hotel I am greeted by friendly staff, and the excellent service translates to each facet of my stay. I always make sure to grab a drink at the bar, which is usually pretty packed. I have been served by several of the bartenders, each of them have been knowledgable and friendly, but most recently I was served by Ashley, who made sure I received a drink I would enjoy. I love the rooms, the modern lay out, and the plush "hotel beds", I always get a great nights sleep when I stay.

We spent five days at the Dupont Circle hotel. I requested and received a refrigerator and a coffee maker, which made for a great home away from home. The staff is excellent and very responsive to requests.

I regretfully only had a one night stay for business at this most excellent hotel. The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. They went "above and beyond"! Rooms were very clean and ultra modern. The bar was hopping when I checked in with lots of smiles and laughter. I would certainly stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: Due to the nature of an older building and the location -road noise is present. Perhaps a higher roo...

We spent 3 days in Washington to discover the city and Dupont Circle was the perfect place. Location is great, close to White House and other touristic sites and vibrant at night with bars and restaurants around the circle.
The hotel is like brand new, with a great modern style. The rooms are confortable, warm and with a great design. A Superior room is fine if you don't spend to much time in the room (no view), Deluxe has a better view. Grand Deluxe are bigger and a nice view over Dupont Circle.
Level 9 is amazing. This top penthouse level offers a great terrace with a private indoor eating area. everyday open bar for one hour and softs drinks available all the day long. We stayed in a Studio Suite wich is an openfloor room, very large, modern design. The service is great as well and the person in charge of Level 9 was very kind and helpful for visitors like us.
Just a perfect stay !

Room Tip: Level 9 worth it! Studio Suite is large, high celling
