“Lovely hotel”
Reviewed 1 January 2014

Pros: Easy, convenient location, spacious rooms (with a potentially unobstructed view), pleasant ground-floor bar, attractive (though smallish) lobby, and all for a reasonable price
Cons: None. Charming place to stay.

Our stay was excellent! The hotel was clean, staff welcoming, location excellent, and the in room kitchens perfect! We will definitely return to this hotel in the future! Our friends ended up in a corner room and I will definitely request one next time.

Room Tip: Request a corner room.

Located close to Dupont Circle Metro station, it was ideal for our 4 day stay. You can walk to all Washingtons attractions from here, but wear good walking shoes to see Washington, as there is so much to see & do.The room was a good size, the bed was huge. Although a bit dark, the room had everything you need, including fridge, microwave etc, and a good shower( needed after walking the length Of the city) Directly behind the hotel is a street with lots of excellent restaurant choices.

Hello Rocky17,
Thank you for your review, indeed you cannot go wrong choosing the Carlyle Suites.The amenities, the location of the hotel, and the neighborhood just make it perfect for not only DC visitors but also for long term guests looking for "a home away from home" kind of place for their business in Washington DC. Let me know when you are coming back to Washington, I will personally work on getting you a room with more lights.
See you soon! Simon Attagba, Front Office Manager

I have spent one night at the Carlyle with my my wife and our dog (a puppy lab) in DC and we had a wonderful time. The hotel is very well situated in a central neighborhood, with a lot of restaurants, transportations and things to do around. Besides that our room was very well equipped with a very good bathroom and nice kitchen. The bed was good and all the staff was very prepared and attentive.
For families with dogs, there is also the best Dog's Park of DC just in the corner.
I would definitely recommend this hotel and if I knew it before I would definitely stay longer there.
Excellent experience.

We were planning on just a day trip in Washington, D.C. We toured several sights and soon we were running out of energy. We jumped on Trip Advisor and searched for good hotel deals. Instead of booking online we decided to take a quick drive to this hotel since we were so close from the coffee shop on Constitution Ave. We entered the hotel lobby, took a quick look and immediately walked up to the front desk to see of they'd honor the $81 rate of King Size suite. They did. Clean property, comfortable accommodation with kitchenette, spacious bathroom and suite with excellent view of Downtown DC. Two thumbs up!!

The location is great, the staff are nice, there is free parking (though without guaranteed availability), and you get a small kitchen in some rooms. These are perhaps reasons enough to stay here. My room, however, was small, run-down, dark, and very depressing. The food at the bar downstairs was barely edible. I ended up asking for a different room after the first night and they were able to give me a bigger, brighter and more recently renovated room with a small kitchen, but by then I was already a bit down on the hotel. If you get a great deal, it will be worth it; if you're paying full price, there are plenty of better options nearby.

Room Tip: Ask for a recently renovated room with a (small) kitchen.

good hotel in dupont circle. the first room I was assigned was a bit dark and not well laid out; I asked to switch and for the same money got a much nicer, brighter room. Good experience all around. recommended, especially if you can get a discount price.
