The Wink Washington DC Hotel

Dupont Circle and Embassy Row, Washington DC

The hotel

Luxury and location – you've got both in bucketfuls when you stay at The Wink Washington DC! Perfect as a base for sightseeing – there are literally tons on your doorstep – it’s also just a lovely place to relax. The service is great, the rooms are spacious as well as comfortable and you can stay connected at all times with complimentary WiFi in the lobby. Illy Caffe is one step beyond the normal American coffee house experience, serving a great cup of espresso. There’s also M Brasserie, premier amongst restaurants in Foggy Bottom and the ideal spot to fuel up on breakfast classics – pancakes with maple syrup anyone? For lunch and dinner, M Bar is eclectic yet sophisticated; quickly becoming a firm favourite we’re sure. As well as museums galore to explore, the White House and the National Zoological Park, there are plenty of biking and hiking trails nearby. Grab your outdoor gear, get out and immerse yourself in D.C!

Notwithstanding the really convenient location downtown as well as the courtesy of the staff and the interesting price, you will substantially receive a room accommodation only. No restaurant, no breakfast, no lobby facilities available but noisy works from 8am to 5pm: this is the real scenario you will find at The Wink during the execution of the current renovating project. We will try to have a new visit at the end of the works for tasting the effective capacity of the structure of welcoming its guests. Read less

We stayed at the wink for 3 days so as we could take in the sights. We found it to be most servicable and clean. The rooms were good and all ammenities supplied.

As several travelers have noted, undergoing renovations. Great prices for now. No noise or dust when I visited. Central location close to great restaurants in Dupont, walkable to Georgetown, and near transport. Room was tiny, but other than that should be a great place for a short stay after it is renovate.

We’ve just left here after a week - yes there is some noise during the day but it wasn’t loud on 5th floor and as we were out most of the time, it wasn’t an issue. Hotel has no services at present though coffee each morning was welcome; bagels far too expensive ($10) but there are lots of places to go within a few minutes walk. Shower stall… Read more

The Wink is undergoing renovations. They were drilling until 5:45pm. The noise was deafening. Once the drilling stopped, it became a much more pleasant environment.

The Wink is undergoing renovations. They were drilling until 5:45pm. The noise was deafening. Once the drilling stopped, it became a much more pleasant environment. Unfortunately, their restaurant is closed. You are within walking distance of Dupont Circle and close to Trader Joes, Whole Foods and Walgreens, so you can find food and drink. In the morning, they served $10 bagels. You can buy bagels in DC for much less. The positives: the front desk staff was very efficient and pleasant. The room was clean and well airconditioned, the bed was comfy. The valet staff were phenomenal. When the construction is finished, I would go back. Read less
