Reviewed 11 November 2011

My stay at Carlyle this past week (November 7-10) was, without question, the best I’ve experienced over hundreds of stays in Washington DC over the past decade. The staff consistently made a special effort to assure our stay (my wife accompanied me on this trip) was the best possible experience. I do not recall all of the names, but do remember that ‘Chris’ scrambled to find a cab for our trip back to the airport, and stayed with us until our luggage was loaded and we were seated in the cab.

My guess is that the beds are 'memory foam' or something similar - just as comfortable as our Tempur-Pedic at home.

The special effort made by the entire staff are very much appreciated by those staying at the hotel, even if guests are not always motivated to thank them.

Room Tip: I would also recommend the rooms with kitchenette & dining area for longer stays - stove, refrig...

Hi Ron! We are all gushing over your review of your recent stay at the Carlyle Suites Hotel - not to mention Mr. Chris who you kindly included in your post. THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts. It's funny that you mentioned the beds! They are actually Tempur-Pedics and very similar to the one you have at home. We were actually the first hotel in Washington DC to feature them in all of our guest rooms! Thanks again Ron and we look forward to welcoming you back home when you return to Washington. Best regards to you and yours. MarcAnthony

Location is great (close to Dupont Circle) and the staff were very professional and friendly.
The room I stayed was nice, clean and big. Recommended for couples or families.
Regarding the interior, some doors and bathroom items looked outdated or cheap, which I didn't expect from the room rates.

If you're not too picky about the details, I think it's quite a nice hotel.

I was attracted by the location, price, amenities and Tempurpedic beds. I was not disappointed. All of the previous were great plus a genuinely friendly and helpful staff. I would stay here again.

We had the opportunity to stay at the Carlyle Suites again this weekend. We always have a lovely stay there and this was no different. The Temperpedic beds are so comfortable! The decor is unique and having a small suite makes the stay more convenient. The neighborhood is wonderful with tree lined streets and access to great restaurants, grocery, coffee shops, and the metro.

Room Tip: The windows open if you like fresh air.

My husband and I stayed at the Carlyle Suites Hotel for a week this fall. The hotel was kept very clean and the staff was very helpful, accommodating, and friendly. Our room faced the back courtyard and was quiet for DC standards. We could open the window for air. The small kitchen nook complete with pots, pans, dishes, glasses, cups, toaster, single serve coffee maker (coffee too), can opener, dish soap, allowed us to prepare simple meals. They have a coin op laundry on the lower level ($1 for washers and up to $1 dryers in quarters) was also kept clean. There was free wireless internet that we were able to use in our seventh floor room. It would time out occasionally and not as fast as home but still a nice bonus. The biggest drawback is that parking is limiting in their lot and if you are lucky you can find some street parking. The location of the hotel is in a good section of DC within walking distance to the Mall. The Metro (red line) is close by and there is a Safeway supermarket and a drugstore a few blocks away. as well. We averaged just under $200 per night which about average for DC hotel prices.

I work with a major environmental organization that hosts a large youth conference each year. Typically we stay at larger corporate hotels, but decided to go smaller and more local this year with the Carlyle. We were extremely happy with our decision - the level of personal attention and care given to all of our requests was incredible. The staff were friendly, attentive, and helpful, not to mention patient with hosting 50 young adults for a weekend. Not to mention - the food was excellent! I would definitely recommend the hotel to other organizations, but also to friends and family coming to visit the city.

Dear Kim L - It is so nice to hear that your conference at the Carlyle Suites Hotel went off without a hitch! We are pretty proud of our staff, especially our Chef and restaurant teams.. They seem to be making the reviews more and more these days! The food in Twist Dupont Restaurant is mostly sourced locally and I think it makes a big difference! Please consider us again if you have another conference in the future, or perhaps a personal weekend getaway over the holidays! DC is so pretty year round, but there is always a little more magic in the air when the city decorates for the season! Thanks again for the review! MarcAnthony
