The Dupont Circle Hotel

Dupont Circle and Embassy Row, Washington DC

Virgin rating

The hotel

Washington’s outpost of the luxury Doyle Collection, The Dupont Circle Hotel is every bit as slick and fashionable as a D.C. pad should be. Its address is enviably central: right on Dupont Circle, which leads you into downtown D.C., and then on to the political powerhouses that make this city a sightseeing classic. You can see some sights without even leaving the hotel though, with the bar and restaurant both framing Dupont Circle with huge walls of windows. At Bar Dupont, you can people-watch from your comfy leather chair or the al fresco patio, while tucking into light dishes, sharing plates, and handcrafted cocktails. At Café Dupont, those city views are accompanied by a French-American menu and a brasserie vibe. When you do venture out, your Dupont Circle location also means you have dining, drinking, and nightlife venues all around.

Stayed here for 30 days and couldn't have asked for something better than this. I travel a lot, and all I can say is that I've never experienced a better/most luxurious lifestyle, until I got to the Dupont Circle Hotel. The staff is the most amazing/generous people I have come across. They remembered my name after the first night of me being there; the lobby always smells so luxurious; the amounts of chocolates given to me on daily basis was amazing; I can go on all day. Dupont Circle Hotel, you've won a customer for life. I can't thank you enough for everything! Read less

I was a member of a group of twelve women coming to Washington DC for a reunion. We loved your hotel for its friendly and welcoming staff, an ideal location, your recommendation to do the night tour of Washington monuments, and Kramer's across the street. I would definitely use your hotel on my next trip to Washington.

I was responsible for all arrangements for a reunion of 12 of my sorority sisters who pledged together 60 years ago! First, in 2020 I had made arrangements with the hotel and had to cancel -- thank you COVID. No problem: full cancellation, no charge. Second, contacted the hotel again for May 2022. Received the same prices for the same accommodations. Our event planners with whom I worked:Charlie Linder, Svetlin Dimitrov and Christina Maher-- main contact responsible for our group reservations. were wonderful. They were all responsive, eager to accommodate requests with followup making sure everything was done to expectations. This included: a)rooms - newly renovated, clean, light and happily with plugs conveniently located b) a private room for all of us to gather. the hotel provided plates, glasses, napkins, table settings, etc. AND a recommendation for where to order pizza. Conceirge Michael Highland was fabulous. a) Suggested and arranged for a private twilight tour with US guided tours to see the monuments. Tracy- guide and Rapheal - driver were amazing. Tracy's warmth and knowledge was most impressive. b) Recommended we eat at Kramers just across the street-- delicious and fast service most accommodating of our group. c) any touring questions asked by any of us. All hotel staff were consistently pleasant and extemelyhelpful HIghly recommend this hotel. Read less

The overall accommodations were fantastic. Would stay again. Very clean, housekeeping are very sweet. I would also recommend to book in advance in order to get the best deal on rooms. The location is also very centrally located. There's a metro stop right across the circle as well as several restaurants and a CVS
