The Dupont Circle Hotel

Washington DC, USA

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.

Had Father's Day brunch at The Pembroke today and the hotel and restaurant staff was very welcoming. As we were leaving in my Tesla which we parked outside the lobby, Balin and Niko brought us chilled water bottles. It added a nice touch to the overall experience especially on a hot day in Washington DC. Thank you guys!!!

Lovely hotel in a fantastic location. The staff are friendly and attentive. The rooms are well sized and equipped and the wifi works well. There are a few negatives: the bed was extremely soft. Combined with the lack of black out curtains (there are only slatted shutters) this means the sleep quality of the rooms is very poor. The mattress… Read more
Lovely hotel in a fantastic location. The staff are friendly and attentive. The rooms are well sized and equipped and the wifi works well. There are a few negatives: the bed was extremely soft. Combined with the lack of black out curtains (there are only slatted shutters) this means the sleep quality of the rooms is very poor. The mattress is one of the most uncomfortable I have slept on and I have slept in some pretty bad places. The gym is small and poorly equipped, especially for a hotel of its stature. However, it is easy to get to other places nearby. The food is especially good and the servers excellent. Of particular note, Derrick, who served us at multiple meals was wonderful. Highly personable, professional, diligent and engaging, he was a true credit to the hotel. A tremendous ambassador who deserves to be managing at a hotel very soon. Read less

I had to go to DC for a quick conference that took place at the DuPont Circle Hotel. I arrived late around 10pm due to my flight. The night crew was very helpful in making sure that I was checked in and that I had everything that I needed. The television’s reception would not pick up the game that night and so I called the front and they sent someone right away to get it fixed (which they did very quickly). The next morning I went to the conference and everyone was extremely helpful. When I had to leave that same day back home, Richard helped to get me to my Lyft as soon as possible and helped to navigate me out of the traffic jam. Overall I was very happy with my stay and would recommend this hotel for work or pleasure. The room was nice and the bed was very comfortable. Very close to everything. Read less

I have to say the staff were GREAT! The hotel on the other hand was more like a budget hotel. Let’s not even discuss the smell of the restroom. Let’s just say I felt like I was living in a broccoli fart cloud the whole time I was there. There were some type of white stains throughout the bathroom. The doors left no privacy what so ever. The rooms… Read more

Let’s just say I felt like I was living in a broccoli fart cloud the whole time I was there. There were some type of white stains throughout the bathroom. The doors left no privacy what so ever. The rooms are just generally depressing closets. If my company had given me a choice I would have stay in a motel. Read less

I ended up here unplanned due to cancelled American Airlines flight. I finally arrived at 02 am - the front desk guy was lovely and so quick - I was in my room within minutes. Such a contrast to the appalling previous 7 hours dealing with American Airlines staff (see other review). Room is small but comfortable, bed super comfortable so had an excellent sleep. Nespresso machine a nice touch as my previous Washington hotel had no opportunity to make a hot drink. Stunning breakfast restaurant - gorgeous space and friendly staff, food was good and dare I say first decent coffee in my whole 10 days in DC. On the whole I wish I’d stayed here my entire trip.
