Very nice staff and rooms in a great area. Within walking distance to many restaurants and the Phillips Collection (a must see art museum in what was a private residence). This was my second time staying at the Lyle and will stay there again when in town. All of the staff is very accommodating especially the manager, Kenny. Thanks for a great stay!

Hotel's Favourite
My family and I visited DC for a long weekend to celebrate my mother-in-law. Our stay at the Lyle was nothing short of amazing. JOHNNY, the concierge, was the BEST! He treated my family like royalty. The hotel, restaurant and valet were 5 star. Johnny went above and beyond to make my kids and my handicap mother-in-law happy. The rooms were spacious and this was the only hotel to guarantee joined rooms. The food, drinks and Marcus at the restaurant did not disappoint. Thank you for a great experience. JOHNNY, YOU'RE AWESOME!

Dear 553kindrar, I think we should make this our mojo: Leave Lyle with a Smile! Thank you so much for your kind words. I hope that you give us the honor of being able to take care of you and your family again in the future. Johnny certainly hears "you're awesome" multiple times a day, but another one doesn't hurt :) Until next time, Irene Interiano. Asst. Front Office Manager.

Took the whole family for a week during Presidents Day Holiday and it was an absolute 10. The staff was incredible, DC was blast. Highly recommend the Lyle Crocodile upgrade with the teepee for the kiddos, etc. Room was great, breakfast was amazing. Room service and valet were pricey but overall was very fairly priced. Will absolutely return.

This was a repeat visit for me to The Lyle, Washington DC, and it was terrific. We secured a two-bedroom with kitchenette. It was spacious, well-appointed and clean. The beds are so comfortable and the in-room robes are a special touch. Every interaction we had with staff was pleasant -- from the valet to the bellman to the front desk to housekeeping. Family joined us for dinner in the lobby bar one night and we enjoyed lite bites and entrees, as well as tasty beverages (the Bee's Knees was to die for!) The ambience was comfortable and appealing. The hotel location is a plus -- near DuPont Circle, but a bit removed from the noise, convenient but tranquil. We will certainly return!

Best hotel stay I've ever had, no exaggeration. I loved staying here and will 100% be back! The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was nice, there was a mini bar and snacks in the room, and the bar/restaurant downstair was lovely. The central location was great -- super easy to grab a quick Uber to basically anywhere in D.C. No complaints about the Lyle!

Lovely Art Deco hotel in one of DC's best neighborhoods. Our room was cozy and comfortable. The hotel is quiet, but it has a cool vibe and a great bar/restaurant on the lobby level. The location is perfect if you like to walk and explore the city. We had a great time and we will be back!

This is a wonderful hotel for exploring DC. Located in a convenient area of DC, this stylish hotel is hard to fault. I spent a long weekend here with friends. And we were able to explore the city by foot, including the Capitol, GeorgeTown and the museums. The rooms are uniquely decorated and spacious. Ours had its own kitchenette and very comfortable bedding and nice toiletries in the bathroom. The bar and restaurant are great. The menu is impressive and the vibe is lively. The only slight downside is the bar closes before 11pm which was a bit disappointing when arriving late. There is a clean and spacious gym, along with a lounge area in the basement, which would be great if you need to get some work done.

This was my second stay at the Lyle, but it won't be my last. The room, the restaurant and bar: all provide a deluxe boutique experience: beautifully appointed and distinctively art deco-themed rooms and public spaces, concise but satisfying menu and a selection of wonderful signature cocktails in the lounge. It's conveniently located near DuPont Circle, within easy walking distance of all that neighborhood has to offer. Staff are friendly and efficient. Best, the rates were significantly below what I've paid in the same area for comparable accommodation. With two stays, it has supplanted my previous go-to for a long DC weekend.
