In 2014 I stayed at the Carlyle Suites Hotel during the American College of cardiology meeting. Thinking I would again enjoy the spacious accommodation with double bed, sitting area, kitchenette and bathroom, I made my reservation. While the hotel still offers good service and cleanliness, gone are those lovely rooms! I found my self in a much smaller space with...

I have enjoyed several stays in Kimpton hotels in DC and am glad to have discovered yet another winner. Great location and a shout out to Andy Lawrence for customer service above and beyond! Like other Kimptons the am coffee bar with a selection of newspapers, wine hour in the evening, and Atelier Bloem bath products are nice amenities. Our...

This is a lovely upscale hotel in a residential neighborhood but still close to everything important. Front desk staff was very patient and helpful. The standard king room is a bit small in size but otherwise ok and a good deal. The double queen bed room is a spacious upgrade with a little kitchen counter with a coffee (free) set...

I flew into Washington for work in the city. I needed to stay relatively close to Farragut due to several meetings planned in the near vicinity. Consequently, I chose the Kimpton Carlyle. The hotel is listed as DuPont Circle, but it is about 7 blocks north and east of the Metro stop. I found it quite convenient. When I arrived...

This is a comfortable modern artsy hotel located in a regular neighborhood near restaurants and the metro. Although my room was on the small side, it was very comfortable and clean. Every staff member I came in contact with was friendly and helpful. I enjoyed the morning coffee, free evening wine hour, and the loaner umbrella. The one thing I...

Hi littlefeller, I am glad you made the most of our central neighborhood location, and that you found our staff to be accommodating. I am sorry one of our pet guests was feeling a little too much at home. We do offer pet-free floors that one can request to be placed on. We look forward to welcoming you back, Thomas

We had a great stay at the Kimpton Carlyle Hotel. Chic, modern design with extensive contemporary art on display in the lobby. The King Deluxe room was very spacious, well designed and comfortable. Staff was friendly & helpful. Free nightly wine hour for guests! The location of the hotel was great, in a quiet area, but there are many bars...

What a great hotel. I think it was recently redone and it is really pretty. The room we were in was spacious and comfortable and had 2 super comfortable beds. The free morning tea and coffee are always a plus. The staff simply could not be nicer. And the location, near the Metro and lots of shops and restaurants but...

What an amazing place to stay! When I arrived, the front desk clerk, Maggie, asked what had brought me to DC. I'm a high school teacher who came to support a student who is competing for a national award.) Maggie bent over backwards for me and upgraded me to a city view room. She even sent up a handwritten note...

I enjoyed my stay here. Love the quiet location near Dupont Circle. The restaurant is excellent. Everyone was friendly. The way the Main Desk is set up in the Lobby could be more accommodating. Having only two people to help guests was not enough. I have stayed at this hotel before and found the same problem.
