I unwittingly booked my most recent reservation at the Kimpton Carlyle (a hotel that I like and have favorably reviewed in the past) through HotelsOne.com. BIG MISTAKE! The phone agent at HotelsOne.com seemed a bit clueless and initially quoted me rates for a Kimpton in New York. When I tried to verify that he represented the Kimpton chain, the agent...

We stayed at The Carlyle over Thanksgiving weekend and had a great time. It felt like we were living and experiencing DC like a local. We walked to all of the restaurants and bar and Soul Cycle. The service was great, rooms were spacious with a kitchenette and it was such great value. We used UBER to get around and...

For us Aussie travelers, at the end of a 4 week holiday In the States and Canada, this beautiful hotel was perfect in every way. The entire experience was awesome.

Can I give it 10 stars? The hotel is wonderful and Kimpton always does a fabulous job of renovating and updating. Modern, great restaurant and bar, beautiful rooms, and free happy hour from 5-6 every day. So you're sold, right? Wait -- I haven't mentioned the staff. THEY ARE FABULOUS. I have never been treated so well and I've done...

We came for New Year's Eve and my One Year Anniversary. We loved this place and it's service so much that we booked another night! The room we booked was extremely comfortable and we slept very well. The walk in shower was super nice! The front desk presented us with a free bottle of Cabernet for our anniversary and from...

Great hotel, wonderful location, blah blah blah. The main reason I'm posting this is because the service was absolutely superb. Had a minor issue with my cell phone, and an employee fixed it in about 5 minutes with a smile! Absolutely every level here was great, from the rooms to the restaurant, but the service was genuinely superb.

We wanted a nice smaller hotel, and that's exactly what we got! This is a very comfortable hotel nestled in a residential area. We could walk a few blocks and be very near restaurants and bars. The Tempurpedic bed was so comfortable! The bathroom is a bit small, but that's just being picky. Good choices on the TV. No vending...

We just spent two nights at this purportedly posh hotel in the DuPont Circle area. Some amenities were nice but some others surprisingly lacking. While there was a mini fridge, it was packed so full of items to sell that there wasn't room enough to put in our two sandwiches to keep them cold - No drawers for non hanging...

Hello Deacon/Chef, I am sorry you did not find our guest room accommodating to your needs. Our mini-bar fridges are stocked with items for purchase, but we can always provide you with an additional refrigerator as well. All of our guest room bathrooms have an exhaust fan that operates 24/7, so it is a little unlike what you mind expect...

I am torn, because I love Kimpton hotels, but this was not the best location I've visited. I will start with the positives. First, I was presented with the option to upgrade to the new suite.

Took family to visit DC after Thanksgiving. What you see in the advertising is what you get. Updated interior, very comfortable beds, clean, spacious rooms, quiet, friendly staff.
