Reviewed 7 April 2014

The Dupont Circle has become my home from home in DC. Great location - just 10 min walk from Downtown but in a much more interesting neighbourhood with a number of pilates and yoga studios (try Fuse, which is excellent) within 2 min. Good gym (for a hotel) in the basement and a really lively (but not noisy) bar scene.

What a great hotel. Dupont Circle is a good location with lots going on around. The staff in the hotel were exceptionally helpful. Our room was very clean and spacious. With good toiletries and soft towels. The beds were very comfortable and lovely pillows. The bar in the hotel was the best I have experienced (for a hotel) it was buzzing. It had a great atmosphere and was not just full of Business people. I would definitely recommend it and would definitely stay again.

The metro is very close by and exceptionally easy to use and cheap. Washington is easy to walk around and is worth exploring.

Stayed at the Dupont Circle Hotel for 3 nights in September 2013 for my honeymoon.
The hotel is in a great location and was an ideal base for us to explore the City.
The staff and rooms are fantastic and we had a meal in the hotel restaurant on our first night and the food was superb.
Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting the City.

The Dupont Circle Hotel is conveniently located right beside the metro so you can easily visit all attractions in DC. We were very impressed with our beautiful room which was spotless, spacious, and comfortable. On our first day we ordered breakfast through room service and were served by Irene. She was incredibly hospitable and friendly, giving us helpful guidance for planning our activities that day. She was genuinely committed to ensuring we enjoyed our stay not only at the hotel, but also in DC as a whole. The cafe's menu is comprehensive and reasonably priced and we found it to be a real time-saver so we could quickly embark on our daily activities. The food was delicious, and overall the hotel's service and amenities definitely made our holiday in DC an absolute treat. I highly recommend staying at the Dupont Hotel - you will not be disappointed!

... or I might as well have been. My room was just above the bar. Whereas other hotels have discovered sound-proof windows, the Dupont Circle Hotel has not. Thus I had the luck to stay up until the bar closed at 3am, because I could hear everything from the bar in my room. It actually sounded like the people sitting in the bar's outdoor area where right in my room.

If you must stay here, ensure you are not anywhere near the bar.

Room Tip: Do not stay anywhere near the bar.

Firstly, let me start by saying that the location of the hotel is the primary reason we chose The Dupont Circle Hotel. Situated directly on the circle, the hotel offers a location that is within walking distance to great restaurants and nightlife, and the DC Metro which gets you to just about anywhere in the city you want to explore in 6-10 minutes. At night, the sights and sounds of Dupont Circle are unique and beautiful, and The Dupont Circle Hotel doesn't disappoint with its views from all rooms on the circle and in their Level 9 Lounge and balcony.
Service: TOP NOTCH! Check in was a breeze, the room was wonderfully clean and fresh, the wait staff and hosts of Cafe Dupont were friendly and knowledgable, quick and professional. The place runs like a well oiled machine, and you are treated as if you're the most important person in the hotel.
Room: We stayed in a Grand Deluxe King Room on the 7th floor overlooking Dupont Circle. Sweeping views of the circle could be had from any seat in the large room. The bed was superbly comfortable, the decor glamorous and chic, the bathroom highly equipped with top knotch toiletries.
First Class Service: Turn down service was immaculate, slippers, robes, chocolate, all of great quality. We had access to the Level 9 Lounge and Balcony for their complimentary happy hour each night from 5-6, where we enjoyed the conversation, music, view, and delicious appetizers and adult beverages.
Food: The food at Cafe Dupont was tremendously delicious, both at breakfast and brunch. We did not eat dinner at the hotel. The menu is complex but easy to read and understand and I got exactly what I expected each time and then some. I highly encourage you eat breakfast at the hotel. (The Irish Oatmeal was particularly good).
People: Again, the people make the hotel even more so than the amazing decor, the lavish luxury of the rooms and the service, and the location - primed right in the heart of the DC scene. Dayonna, who checked us in, was delightful and a ray of sunshine. She brightened what had been a long morning and a terrible (but thankfully short) flight from Buffalo. Niamh, the front desk manager was professional, courteous, generous, and super efficient. Cole, the Guest Services Manager served us two of the three nights we were at the Level 9 happy hour, and she is the very definition of elegance, and truly made us feel like royalty.
All in all - if you're thinking of booking a hotel in DC, don't look any further. You can't do better than The Dupont Circle Hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms on upper floors provide better views of the city, as DC is a pretty "squat" city to...

Reserved this purely on location and price but was extremely happy with our experience. Greeted at check in by Niamh and Siobhan who were wonderful. Niamh made sure we had all information we needed and chatted with us easily but professionally and with a wonderful smile, that made us feel welcome. Although the room was small, it was comfortable, clean and well appointed. Linens and towels were good. The bar was a hive of activity most of the time, and staff were attentive, friendly and efficient. We ate in the restaurant Du point Cafe which was very nice and reasonably priced. There are so many places to eat within walking distance and fun shops to explore. If there on the weekend the farmers market is great. One place worth mentioning is Krammers Book Store , a wonderful place, they also have a cafe and bar which seem to stay open all night at weekends! Best bookstore in town. Our one and only problem was the valet parking, although staff were friendly we had to wait quite a bit for our car, now there was a wedding there, so there may have been a mass exodus at that time ! I would definitely recommend this hotel and will certainly stay there again.
