This hotel was wonderful. The location couldn't have been better. Right on Dupont circle and the metro. Room was beautiful and room service was great. Would definitely stay here again.

Pros: This is a great hotel with huge rooms, and they make amazing homemade pasta. Plus they have a free happy hour in the lobby and the decor is modern.
Location: Right in the heart of DC 2 blocks from Dupont Circle and the Metro.
My wife and I stayed here for 2 days during the winter and it was perfect. Cool hotel, great restaurant and perfect location.

Girls trip to DC museums

Posted Mar 24, 2015
Looks great, lots of bachlorette parties and people in their late 20s. Hotel was really hip, in a nice location with lots of places to eat. A 20 minute walk to the Lincoln memorial. We had a room of 4 girls and they charged us a supplemental fee of $30 per night, yet gave us no extra towels (only three), soap, robes, etc. They were really busy so if you needed anything (soap, towel, shower cap) it took 30 minutes. And no cable. I loved there were so many dogs staying there, and they had treats for them at the front desk.

Read description very carefully

This could be a nice hotel if the rooms would be of adequate size. I booked a queen room for 2 adults, and expected the usual 2 queen beds. Unfortunately what I got was a single queen in a room without space for even an additional seating group. As I had prepaid through Travelocity the staff was very unaccommodating. Also, be aware that parking is $50/night after taxes.

Nice rooms. Perfect location. Great value!

First thing you notice is the great location, just off of DuPont Circle--an exciting, thriving DC neighborhood. Then, you're impressed with the decor, cleanliness, and modern interior. Next, the friendly and helpful staff greets and assists with anything you need. Finally, you're in your well appointed and comfortable room.

This hotel was super trendy and fun.

Posted Nov 7, 2012
Pros: Free Internet
I enjoyed the spacious room (complete with some kind of awesome faux-animal skin rug). Bar downstairs was also really lively and fun, boasting an excellent selection of wine and a good people-watching scene. It's kind of dark/modern/trendy, so if that's not your thing, I'd stay at a more traditional place.

Nice "trendy" hotel, great deal!

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet
The room was spacious and nice. The location was perfect - just steps rom DuPont circle, surrounded by restaurants and shopping. The gym was really well equipped. The wine hour in the evening was a great touch. I would definitely stay here again.

Great home away from hom.

Posted Mar 8, 2012
Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet, super location
Cons: No free Internet
This is one of the nicest hotels I've stayed at in quite some time. The front desk staff were knowledgeable and very accommodating. The doormen and cleaning staff were equally friendly and went out of their way to make our stay pleasant. The location was superb, the size and cleanliness of the room, along with bedding, towel, and toiletries was nothing short of superlative. I will ceretainly stay at this hotel again when visiting the nation's capital.

FABULOUS hotel!!

Posted Feb 26, 2012
Pros: dog friendly, safe neighborhood
Cons: pricey parking
The staff was amazing and very helpful. The hotel is in a nice part of town and I felt safe walking my dog alone even at 10 pm. This hotel is extremely DOG FRIENDLY! Then even had a bowl of bones & a water bowl by the door for your dog when you walked in, it was adorable! The room was gorgeous, clean, and had a great view. The bed was a little hard, but I prefer a soft bed. The pillows & beading were awesome though. They offer free internet if you are a Kimpton InTouch member and it is free to sign up on their website. Be aware that parking is NOT FREE & kind of pricey, though all parking in DC is expensive if it is not street parking. I was not able to attend but there is a free wine reception every evening for guests.
