This was one of the top hotels I have stayed in DC. And personally have stayed in top properties there like the st. Regis. The location, service and staff was above and beyond. ELSADIG from the front desk made our stay very pleasant and helped in every way possible. This is the kind of service that makes you a life long customer. Felt at home away from home. Thank you all for everything.

Hotel's Favourite
Great place—pool was the perfect late afternoon retreat on DC’s hottest day. Incredible staff and very comfortable rooms. Linens were squeaky clean. Full gym included free weights, spin bike, weight and cardio machines with enough space for yoga/stretching . Great farmers market a block away on Sunday mornings Good vibes at Royal Sonesta DuPont Circle.

Key really took care of me when I checked in! The room was very spacious and well appointed. The bed was super comfy. Only complaint is the shower head was wonky. The furniture was modern and clean, the aesthetic was pleasant and all the bases were covered.

Great experience, good quality room for the price. The bed was comfortable, and the room overall seemed very clean. They were very thorough in cleaning my room and replacing towels, etc. Key at the front desk was so friendly and helpful, she made checking in and out so easy.

On my first night I tried to run the tub for a relaxing soak at the end of a tiring travel day only to find that the pop up drain couldn’t be closed. I suffered through but mentioned the problem to Ray as I left the hotel the next morning. She took care of it while I was out so problem solved. Thank you, Ray! My only other comment is that the hot water was only luke warm. There should be a greater temperature range.

Stayed here for a couple of days and worked remotely. I never leave the PG County area so I decided to have a staycation here in the DC area. From the arrival everything was seamless. Key was a very big help and was eager to make sure I was checked in and handled with the upmost customer service. I wanted to tip her but she wasn't around when I checked out. Pros: Check In, Comfortable beds, Location Cons: Needed one more day lol

Came in for a conference at a nearby hotel. This was one of the hotels that the conference booked our group for. My group must have gotten lucky. We heard some horror stories from my other group members at another hotel. The people here are nice and look like they want to help. The rooms were clean and that’s all I ask for. At checkout Simon asked how everything went and we let him know that we got the better choice. I would definitely come back if I needed to come back to DC.
