Kimpton Carlyle Hotel
Ranked #51 of 142 Hotels in Washington DC
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 August 2014

Just returned from a couples get away in Washington,DC. The Carlyle Suites was in the Dupont district...close enough to Washington attractions, yet small enough to have a cozy feel tucked in a beautiful old neighborhood. Our room was spacious with a wet bar and small kitchenette. The front desk staff was extremely helpful with restaurant accommodations and directions. Michelle Black was especially kind by sending up a bottle of champagne to celebrate a marriage in our group.
The restaurant even graciously served us after they were closed for lunch one day. We found the Carlyle Suites to be a very personal and intimate hotel....we'd definitely stay there again.

My first but certainly not my last visit at the Carlyle was more than what I expected! The physical space, hospitality and ambience was wonderful, well beyond my expectations. The front desk staff met all my needs. Abu went above and beyond the call of duty, meeting the needs of his guests.
Will I come again? Most certainly. Will I recommend the Carlyle? Most definitely.

Thank for making my stay in DC most memorable.

Room Tip: Top floors the best as you get a perfect view of the Washington Monument.

I was very pleased to have stayed at this place. As soon as I entered two guest service receptionists welcomed us with big smile. With best guest service i ever experienced at this hotel vs all the other hotels I have stayed it's my promise that whenever I go to DC Carlyle will be my only choice.

I would like say special thank you to Mr Abou and Ms Kamaria for the great guest service extended.

The staff is fantastic and made us feel like their guests, not like a number.
The room was very cool. It is also the most quite and private room we have ever stayed in.
The neighborhood is fun and close to many restaurants.
Thank you to Abou, Michalla and Madiombo for your attention to detail.

My husband and I stayed here while I attended the APA conference. The hotel was perfect for bringing dogs as it is right beside the dog park. Upon arrival, we noticed the hospitality of the staff. Everyone welcomed us each time we entered the hotel. The breakfast was buffet style and delicious. The room was excellent and included a kitchen which was handy for heating up leftovers. I don't have any complaints and I'm super appreciative of the staff for being so helpful!

I chose this property based on the reviews. It not only lived up to the high praise, in my opinion, it exceeded it.

The neighborhood was quiet and pleasant. Several excellent shops, restaurants, and bars with located conveniently near the hotel. Yet it was only a short walk to the White House and other attractions. The property is an art deco style that has been beautifully restored.

We opted for a junior suite (I can't remember if that was the exact room type it was called, but larger than a standard room). It had a small galley kitchen that was well equipped with all the essentials. When traveling with two teenage boys, this is especially important! This spotless room had two double beds and a pull out couch. Four large windows provided ample natural light and gave a great view (it felt a bit European). The room was much larger than the average hotel room and actually felt more like a studio apartment. It was very comfortable for our family of four.

But even better than the location and rooms was the service. From our warm welcome at check in (thank you Simon!) to the staff arranging for taxis, it was so much more welcoming than a large chain hotel. Everyone we encountered on the hotel property was friendly and helpful. Service this outstanding should be recognized.

This hotel is a hidden gem. When I return to DC, it will be my quiet oasis in a bustling city.

Room Tip: The suites are excellent for families.

We really enjoyed our recent stay here. The location was wonderful and the surrounding neighborhood just beautiful. Loved the Art Deco style, the rooms and the staff! We felt cared for and the manager's attention to quality and concern for the guest experience really showed. Will definitely stay here again. Good price, on-site laundry and pet friendly too. Couldn't ask for anything more.
