Since we live in Baltimore area, we seldom have the need to stay overnight in Washington. Our only previous overnight adventures were mostly in tourist-clogged hotels close to the National Mall. After doing some homework, we sought more of an upscale ‘neighborhood’ setting, away from the national monuments, etc. to celebrate a special occasion (birthday) and explore the surrounding area as a weekend getaway. We had always heard that the Dupont Circle-Georgetown area of DC would probably fit the bill.
When I consulted Trip Advisor. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that several of the highest ranked hotels in Washington were in the Dupont Circle-Georgetown area. Taking into consideration recent guest reviews, along with room cost, we decided on the Carlyle Suites. Their consistent 5 star reviews, and positive comments regarding hotel appearance, staff, and neighborhood were all eye-openers. In fact, Carlyle Suites is located in a quiet neighborhood on New Hampshire Avenue, among well-manicured residences, embassies and various national organizations. It’s only about a 2 block walk to the shops, boutiques, bookstores, restaurants, art galleries, and Metro which all define Dupont Circle.
We found the interior design of the Carlyle Suites to be attractively ‘Art-Deco-ish’, well planned, and spotless, both in the public areas as well as the guest suites. Guest suite furnishings thankfully avoid the chain-hotel look. The chairs, tables, and other room appointments all blend in to create a comfortable artistic whole. A welcome and refreshing change, to say the least. And the staff was top notch, helpful and always there for you. All-in-all, a ‘find’ that we will definitely return to.
