Stayed here between 4th and 7th September 2013. Contrary to what others have said, we found the price for the excellent accommodation to be very good, compared to alleged "superior" hotels in New York, that were way above this price. Staff very friendly and helpful on arrival and during our stay, particularly the Breakfast staff and the guys at the door, who were great for directions and the locations of excellent local restaurants and bars. We will return and have recommended the hotel to friends in the UK who are planning a short stay in DC. This has got to be one of the nicest and safest parts of DC to stay and wander in.

This hotel suite was a really great find. Spacious, comfortable and well located. The only downside was a poor quality wifi that kept dropping out. Lovely area, amongst embassies, tree-lined streets. Our deal was extremely reasonable for such good quality. Highly recommended.

The hotel offers suites which are large with a kitchenette and dining area. The DuPont area of Washington is a beautiful neighbourhood with tree lined streets which are safe to walk in even at night. The metro is about 6 minutes walk from the hotel and there are some restaurants within 5 minutes walk of the hotel. The big bus tour leaves from DuPont circle and the hotel will give you directions, this tour is a good way to get an over view of Washington DC.
The staff were helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: High floor corner rooms offer good views

We've returned last week from a 6 night stay at the Carlyle Suites. We enjoyed our stay here overall!

We were pleased to find upon checking in that we had been upgraded to a large corner suite on the top floor because we were staying 6 nights! I wasn't quite as happy, however, to find that we were being charged $20 per night more than I booked the room at supposedly due to a computer glitch. Simon did get that corrected for us, but it wasn't fun to have to deal with after a long day of traveling cross country to get here.

We had a very spacious suite with plenty of windows. We were at the back of the hotel with a nice view of the DC skyline. Quiet room - very little noise from the surrounding streets and no noise from neighboring rooms. The kitchenette complete with microwave, toaster, fridge, 2 burner stovetop and Keurig was very useful. We had breakfast in our room every morning before heading out sightseeing, so this saved us some $$.

The tempurpedic beds are probably the best of any hotel I have stayed at! They are firm and comfortable.

The hotel is about a 5 block/10 minute walk to the DuPont Circle Metro station. This is a lively area and we enjoyed it. A number of restaurants are nearby including many sidewalk cafes. A Safeway is just a couple blocks away. This is a pretty residential area with townhomes and embassies.

We found the wi-fi to be spotty at best. Fortunately we didn't need it. There are no ice machines on the floors, so if you need ice, you either trek to the bar to get some or call the front desk to have it delivered. Bathrooms are small and only have a shower, although a nice tiled one! Loved the supplied toiletries. The vanity with a bench outside the bathroom was handy! The AC worked well and ran quietly.

We are glad we chose the Carlyle Suites for our stay in DC. I would stay here again should we return to DC.

Room Tip: The spacious corner suites are very nice!

QueenMumOrego, I am glad we were able to fix the rate discrepancy you had at check in and to hear that your overall stay was enjoyable. I would like to thank you for taking the time to describe all of our amenities so that the TripAdvisor Community can also take advantage of them. The complete kitchenette with microwave, toaster, fridge, 2 burner "stovetop" and Keurig coffee maker are just so useful for many long stay travelers like you. Thank you for the four stars and we shall see you soon on your next visit to Washington, DC.
Best Regards, Simon Attagba, Front Office Manager

My sister and I just spent nine days in Washington DC at the Carlyle Suites Hotel. The staff was very friendly and informative. Our suite was well appointed providing a Keurig coffeemaker, microwave, stovetop and everything we could possibly need. Whenever we entered or exited from the lobby, we were met with cheerful greetings. The Hotel is situated away from downtown on a quiet tree lined street within walking distance of Dupont Circle Metro station. Lots of eateries, bars and groceries close by. Our special thanks to several of the front desk staff: KaMaria, Abou and Mediombo.

Room Tip: Corner suite on a higher floor is great.
