“Wonderful hotel, with the added plus of a great restaurant on-site”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

We chose this hotel mostly because of its location, but the surprise was what a lovely stay we had there, with such a comfortable room and and excellent friendly staff. To a person, each staff member we interacted with was gracious and helpful. I know the Washington scene is very competitive for hotels and restaurants, but I would put the Dupont Circle Hotel right at the top of my list. It is stylish, but not in a self-conscious or precious way. Rather, each thing (such as the flowers in the lobby or the toiletries provided in the room) is there to please the senses and make you feel cared for. So it's a thoughtful place, in that way. Almost by accident we ended up having dinner in the restaurant in the hotel, Cafe Dupont, where we had a superb meal (hazelnut-crusted scallops, gazpacho, lobster in tarragon butter sauce with various vegetables), every bit of it so delicious. We were only in the hotel for one night, and for us it was a splurge for a special occasion, but every bit of the tab was worth it, and we do plan to go there again. I would heartily recommend the Dupont Circle Hotel for anyone visiting DC.

This hotel has great location just inside DuPont Circle and across the metro station. Service was friendly and overall ok. We stayed for a business trip so we were interested and access to transport and restaurants.

A very stylish hotel within walking distance of many attractions.
The room is very modern and comfortable.
The lobby area is very pleasant and free coffee and tea in the mornings is most welcome.
We enjoyed an excellent evening in the bar, great drinks and atmosphere.
It is a 20/25 minute walk to Capitol Hill area.
Would also mention a lively park nearby with ad hoc bands etc - we liked it, others may find it noisy...

I really enjoyed my stay at The DuPont Circle Hotel. The customer service I received from David, Dayonna and D'Andre was excellent! I loved my room and the view of DuPont Circle. Great location and in walking distance to many nice restaurants. I loved the look of the hotel. It was very modern. Bar DuPont was very nice. I enjoyed the outdoor seating. Loved everything about my stay except for the service of the cleaning staff. I would stay here again and recommend the hotel to friends, coworkers and family.

As part of our 4 week US east coast holiday, this was our last hotel stay before flying back from Dulles Airport. We were pleasantly surprised by the friendliness of the staff and the fine room!
We had a perfect last night!

Great location with plenty of restaurants around.
Room maybe somewhat small for three, but that would be the only remark.

Front desk was very helpful in answering our questions, especially Mr. D'Andre had great tips!

Our room was a delight--modern, yet warm, with all the right amenities considering our very 'average' price point. The hotel staff could not have been nicer or more helpful and attentive during our 3 days there. We enjoyed multiple tasty breakfasts (great menu offerings) at the Cafe Dupont in the hotel, as well as an appetizer and nightcap at the very cool bar over looking the circle. There are great restaurants, cafe's and boutique shopping all very close. We walked our entire time to all of the attractions in DC from there, though some can be 30-45 minute walk away. If you don't feel like walking (we just happen to enjoy it and the weather was great) taxis are plentiful. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to DC.

Glad I went by myself, bathrooms have no privacy. The staff is very friendly (but for the money they should be). Mini fridge pre-stocked w/$5 sodas. Small rooms, only coffee and tea in the morning. It is in a nice area surrounded by lots of different restaurants ranging in price from $-$$$.
