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.

We stayed at this hotel a few weeks ago and I've been turning over how to review it. Kimpton has several hotels in Washington, D.C. We've stayed at four of them and have generally had an excellent experience. If you're not familiar with the Kimpton chain, you'll find bold, kind of funky design and lots of nice amenities like a...

This was a great recommendation from a friend - the staff was excellent, always had a smile and a helpful thought about the neighborhood or the amenities in the hotel. The bed was extremely comfortable, took a second to get used to, but it was perfect for rest after a long day seeing the sights. The in room amenities in...

The facilities are very good. Warm and friendly staff: Susu and everyone else. Convenient ten minutes walk from Dupont circle Metro. There are many nice small places to eat nearby. The inhouse restaurant is nice but not cheap.
