“second time - always happy !”
Reviewed 7 April 2012

This is the second time i stayed at this Hotel.
The Rooms are nice, clean and with a kitchenette perfect for longer stays.
The Fron Desk Staff (specifically Karen) are friendly and very nice - if
there is a Problem - they will solve it.
The ONLY negative thing and i have that mentioned also at the sister Hotel
in which i stayed several times is the Inernet requiring you to log on
every 4 Hours - this is not up to standards - the connection should be "on" for
24 Hours before a "re-login" is required.
The Location is PERFECT in walking distance to the heart of Dupont Circle.
Supermarkets, CVS and other stores are very close by.

The BEDs are very nice (Tempur Pedic) Pillows unfortunally do NOT include
a feather Pillow which i would prefer.

My wife and I stayed here while visiting the nearby offices of a professional organization (and that organization paid for the room directly, so I don't actually know whether the value for that particular stay was great, but the advertised rates don't look bad for a place that advertises itself as a luxury hotel). The rooms were fine, the service was fine, and all in all it was a very pleasant stay at a hotel in a less bustling location near an area noted for a lot of bustle.

One warning: The place advertises itself as being near the White House, which is supposedly "just a 20 minute walk" away. I carefully measured the distance to be somewhat over a mile via walking routes, and I think their statement is technically true if one walks nearly four miles per hour and can keep up that pace through traffic lights. If you want to visit the White House and environs and don't want to walk that far, your better bet is to take the Metro from the Dupont Circle station to one of the Farragut Square stations or the one on McPherson Square, which cuts out about two-thirds of that hike for a nominal fee.

My wife and I recently stayed at the Carlyle Suites Hotel for three nights. On every count I can give it a great review. The suites are very large in area (important to me); they have kitchenettes, which makes small meals or snacks in the room very comfortable; and the location is superb, three blocks from DuPont Circle in a beautiful embassy neighborhood. Very close to the hotel are a supermarket and neighborhood restaurants.
The staff is extremely helpful and pleasant. I look forward to staying there again when I am in Washington.

We had a grand king suite and felt at home during our stay. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating. The only negative was that our original room was smaller that the one we reserved. A simple phone call rectified things.Our room was spacious, quiet and well appointed. They have temper-pedic mattresses which are very firm, for some this could be a negative, but we adjusted quickly. The bathroom was small,but more than adequate with a good shower.
The location was excellent. Just off of DuPont Circle, the surrounding area felt safe, clean and there is an abundance of restaurants and shops with everything you might need within walking distance. We're walkers so the trip to the National Mall area was fine for us, but there is easy access to the Metro and taxis if you prefer. We lucked out and had parking the entire time we were there. I highly recommend this hotel. We loved the neighborhood.

Dear rtmuss - Thank you for your kind review and for sharing your experience with other TripAdvisor readers on our little Dupont Circle hotel. I am happy that our Reception team was able to quickly find the perfect room for you and you were able to take advantage of our free parking. Finding a spot can be challenging! Hopefully you timed your visit to DC just so and enjoyed the Cherry Blossoms! Such a beautiful time of year! Thanks for your business and we hope that we have the opportunity to have you as our guests again soon. Warm Regards, MarcAnthony

My wife and I attended a wedding March 30 - April 1, 2012. We loved the art decco feel of the hotel. We walked down to Dupont Circle on Sundy morning for coffee and donuts and enjoyed the trees and flowers in bloom. The staff made us feel welcome each time we returned to the Carlyle. It was a very romantic and fun weekend!

The hotel was everything that I had expected. The rooms were wonderful, the guest service and doormen were wonderful, the food was great, and the pub that was inside was nice to have close. I love that it had a modern feel, and was very comfortable. The kitchen in the room was great for in the morning for coffee. The room is so nice you could stay there as an apartment. When I go back to DC again I will be staying at the Carlyle again, they are so close to everything and in a great area.

Room Tip: I was not worried about the view, but if you want a great view you need to be on the front of the ho...

Hi Sandra! Thanks for the great review and for the additional room tips for other readers looking for the right hotel in DC. As you mentioned in your review, there are 2 view options for most guests. Since the Carlyle Suites Hotel is nestled in the heart of Dupont Circle, the rooms facing the front of the hotel on New Hampshire Ave. offer pretty views of the Dupont Circle neighborhood complete with beautiful architecture, charming rooftops and trees. On the other side (facing the back parking lot) most guests rooms, especially the Grand King Corner Rooms have a great view of the Washington Monument. When making your next reservation, just mention your preference and (based up availability) we will do our best to accommodate. Glad you had a great time at the wedding and we look forward to your return! Best - MarcAnthony

My partner and I stayed at The Carlyle Suites between the dates of March 30-April 1 for our wedding and reception (which was held there). It was the most enjoyable hotel I have EVER stayed at. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms are very modern and updated. The atmosphere is very "old Hollywood", I loved it. The room that we had our reception was in had a very Tuscan village feel. It had glass ceilings that let in plenty of natural light to give the outside feel to it. It also had street lamps located in the reception room that came on once it got dark outside.

The staff was more than helpful to our guests who also stayed there. Not one of our guests had a bad experience. Believe me, I checked and they all were amazed at the level of comfort and service that the hotel had to offer. Joann Sipe along with the other employees were more than happy to fulfill our requests about anything. I would suggest anyone who is planning to have a wedding, reception, or just to visit, to stay at this hotel. It is affordable and it is within close proximity to the monuments and Metro system. Very, very lovely and perfect!

Room Tip: Not one room in this hotel is a let down. Whatever room you choose to stay in, you will be satisfied...
