Classic elegance in Dupont Circle

Posted Jul 24, 2015
Location: Chop't is a great restaurant a few blocks away, and I wish I had one near where I live!
This luxury hotel is very comfortable. There are classic elements of elegance throughout, from the thick robes to the leather-bound notebooks available. It's a bit old, but that doesn't detract from the experience.

Lovely hotel! Would stay there again!

Posted Jul 23, 2015
Pros: I loved the temperature gauge for the shower. Don't know how that accomplished this but the bathroom mirror NEVER fogged up! Easy access to Metro.
Cons: The grout around a few of the bath shower tiles could have used a bit of bleach and scrubbing, but overall quite a nice room.
Location: The neighborhood was quite cosmopolitan. Plenty of amazing (international food) restaurants within easy & safe walking distance. Lots of foot traffic.
The staff were VERY helpful and accommodating! The room was beautifully appointed. I wish my particular room had been a little larger with a lounge chair or sofa. The bed was very comfortable. The pillows were amazing!

Weekend in DC

Posted Jul 17, 2015
Pros: Size of room and location
Cons: Wifi and communication
Location: Easy to get to metro, restaurants, and drug stores
Room was very spacious and beds were comfortable. There was confusion about the wifi and pick up of tour buses. The bathroom could have been cleaner, especially the shower.

Nice hotel in Dupont Circle

Posted Jul 10, 2015
I like to stay here on business, since my company is a few blocks away. The location is terrific - Embassy Row is beautiful. When my wife came to the company party, this is the hotel we chose to stay at. I like it better when I can get a reasonable rate, which happens occasionally.
