Nice location (Dupont is full of nice restaurants and bars, walking distance to Adams Morgan nightlife area...), free wifi in the rooms, comfortable beds, and amazing staff (look for Karen!), second time there and next year we're coming back for sure! Our home location downtown D.C.

Stayed for five nights in March. Great location with many terrific dining options (and a Safeway food store) around the block on 17th Street. Staff is extremely friendly and attentive. Abou and Simon at the front desk were particularly helpful in finding me a very quiet room with sufficient workspace. Rooms are clean and well-maintained. I would definitely stay here again.

Clean rooms with comfortable beds. Simon and Michelle directed me to a cozy Cafe on 14th St named after my favorite author, Antoine De Saint-Exupery that was just a few blocks away. Room had a small kitchen and shower had great pressure even on 7th floor. Art Deco vibe throughout. Highly recommend!

Very cozy, clean and helpful. Buffet was a surprise. Abou and Simon were very friendly and eager to please. Cumcow, the janitor, delightledly helped my grandson and I crush geodes with a borrowed hammer. The security in the elevator was very comforting. The rooms had everything needed to make stay affordable. The restaurant had nice wine selection and pretty good food. We highly recommend this hotel.

This past February, I stayed here with a group of 28 adults when we were visiting Washington, DC. This place is fantastic! The beds are outstanding! Clean and fresh linens, etc. Everything is first class at the Carlyle Suites Hotel. The management is great to work with and the staff make you feel right at home. The buffet breakfasts are the best! Many items to choose from . . . everything for the health conscious to the those of us who wish to indulge. This is where I stay when I visit our nation's capital.

A group of us stayed at the Carlyle Suites for a week long stay in DC. It was great! Each room seemed a little different...all great with lots of character. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful since we didn't know the area at all. Eyob and Arefat greeted us with smiles every time and helped us find restaurants, get taxis, and load our luggage. Thank you!

Room Tip: A lot of the rooms are a little different. One had a small table with bar stools by the kitchen. Ano...

This cute retro hotel offers comfy (TempurPedic) clean beds with lots of pillows! WE loved having the mini kitchen in the room so we could make coffee and have breakfast in the room before starting our day. The bathroom was fine with the half glass shower door that is half open. Why they put these in a bathroom I have no idea!! But that would be our only complaint!
We found the staff friendly, helpful and kind, willing to help us hail a cab in the freezing or cleaning off our car and warming it up when a cab was nowhere in sight due to the lack of snow plows and cabs in Washington.

Room Tip: Great Value but a little off the cab path in a snow emergency!
