Loved this hotel! I stayed the weekend for a bachelorette party and it was an outstanding experience. The front desk staff was wonderful - we had some special requests, particularly in relation to billing. I know that's not always easy, but the staff handled it with kindness and grace. I never once felt as if we were putting them out,...

As a brand, Kimpton always delivers an exceptional hotel experience, and this property was right in line with what I've come to expect from them. The staff was friendly and informative. The location was walking distance to DuPont Circle and the D.C. Improv to catch a show. The rooms were clean, contemporary (extra USB plugs!), and outfitted with an amazingly...

We had a very nice three night stay at this hotel about 4 blocks from Dupont Circle. We asked for a quiet room and were up on the 8th floor ... very quiet and restful. No street noise either. The rooms are smallish but fine... ours was a king with kitchenette which included refrigerator, sink, microwave and Keurig coffee maker...

The Kimpton Caryle Hotel is a cute hidden gem in a very happening area in the downtown DC area. I've stayed here twice and my experience the second time was great.
