The Dupont Circle Hotel

Dupont Circle and Embassy Row, Washington DC

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.

This review is long overdue. As I look forward to my annual meetings in Washington DC, researching to find the latest restaurants, hydrating in preparation for Madam's Organ, gauging the logistic around town to meet up with colleagues, the constant and highly anticipated part of the trip is the Dupont Circle Hotel. After navigating through the city, returning to the Dupont Circle Hotel has a calming yet dynamic vibe. The Doyle bar and the restaurant, have excellent drink and food. Good happy hour crowd, but not too crowded. The rooms are simple, but elegant with a midcentury feel. The service has been consistently excellent. Professional and accommodating, I've always appreciated their manner and acumen for hospitality. I recommend the third floor, close to the corner (or the corner room) overlooking New Hampshire and Dupont Circle. The buzz of the circle with the leafy green trees make for an awesome view.

Excellent boutique hotel with two great independent hip restaurants co-located in the same building. Location is a short walk from cafes, trains, embassies and places to eat or just chill. The wonderful ambiance and location of this renovated art deco hotel puts it on my highly recommended list for DC.

The Dupont Circle has most of what you need for your stay in DC. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We were able to borrow an adapter for the electricity and umbrella for rainy days. The room was quite small but the bed was comfortable and the cleaning superb. I don't know if all the rooms are the same but we found it slightly… Read more
The Dupont Circle has most of what you need for your stay in DC. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We were able to borrow an adapter for the electricity and umbrella for rainy days. The room was quite small but the bed was comfortable and the cleaning superb. I don't know if all the rooms are the same but we found it slightly uncomfortable that the bathroom did not have a proper door. All in all a good hotel. Read less
