5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2012

This is by far one of the best brunch's i have had, eggs and waffles made to order and many different dishes to choose from, all very good,desserts were just perfect, included is the bottomless mimosas, in which was generously refilled several times, live music, pleasant atmosphere,servers are very attentive, if your in DC often give this place a try. I cannot comment on the rooms as i did not stay here.

Room Tip: do Sunday brunch here

Dear boilermonster - We often get reviewed on our hotel rooms, so to get reviewed for our Sunday Brunch is truly fantastic! Our team in Twist Dupont Restaurant has made our Sunday Brunch one of the best in the city and we couldn't be happier! Thanks for taking the time to review the food and we hope you make the trip from Baltimore again! Cheers! MarcAnthony

Since we live in Baltimore area, we seldom have the need to stay overnight in Washington. Our only previous overnight adventures were mostly in tourist-clogged hotels close to the National Mall. After doing some homework, we sought more of an upscale ‘neighborhood’ setting, away from the national monuments, etc. to celebrate a special occasion (birthday) and explore the surrounding area as a weekend getaway. We had always heard that the Dupont Circle-Georgetown area of DC would probably fit the bill.

When I consulted Trip Advisor. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that several of the highest ranked hotels in Washington were in the Dupont Circle-Georgetown area. Taking into consideration recent guest reviews, along with room cost, we decided on the Carlyle Suites. Their consistent 5 star reviews, and positive comments regarding hotel appearance, staff, and neighborhood were all eye-openers. In fact, Carlyle Suites is located in a quiet neighborhood on New Hampshire Avenue, among well-manicured residences, embassies and various national organizations. It’s only about a 2 block walk to the shops, boutiques, bookstores, restaurants, art galleries, and Metro which all define Dupont Circle.

We found the interior design of the Carlyle Suites to be attractively ‘Art-Deco-ish’, well planned, and spotless, both in the public areas as well as the guest suites. Guest suite furnishings thankfully avoid the chain-hotel look. The chairs, tables, and other room appointments all blend in to create a comfortable artistic whole. A welcome and refreshing change, to say the least. And the staff was top notch, helpful and always there for you. All-in-all, a ‘find’ that we will definitely return to.

Dear artistK - We are so happy that you turned to TripAdvisor when planning your visit to Washington DC. We are so proud of our guest reviews because as you noted in the title of your review - we try to exceed our guest expectations each and ever day. From our at-home amenities such as the Tempur-Pedic beds and the gourmet Keurig coffee makers to our 37" HD flat screen televisions and free WiFi. (And through our service of course). Thanks again for the review and we look forward to your return! Best - MarcAnthony

We just returned home from a wonderful weekend in D.C. for the 10th Annual Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. This is the third year my walking team has stayed at the Carlyle Suites Hotel and we wouldn't dream of staying any place else!

Situated in Dupont Circle, we had a double double suite that overlooked New Hampshire Avenue. Plenty of windows made the rooms bright and pleasant! The little kitchen area was the perfect place to have a little pre-walk wine and cheese celebration and it was nice to have a good-size refrigerator to keep cold our water and snacks for the walk.The staff was attentive to our needs and very welcoming! We were up and out very early both days and staff made sure we had taxi cabs to get us to our destinations. After our first day walking (26.2 miles), we settled in at the bar around 5:30 to have a cold post-walkathon beer (it’s very fortifying after logging that many miles!) while watching the Kentucky Derby. We then went to our rooms to grab showers and then returned to have dinner. Haneen was especially attentive! I remembered him from last year’s Walk! The food was spectacular, service was outstanding, accommodations were top-notch and the beds were soooooooooo comfortable—we can’t thank The Carlyle Suites enough!

I am happy to report that after our third year, our Avon Walk Team—the Mountain Mommas—has raised close to $90,000 for breast cancer research! We are on target to surpass $100K next year! We could not do it without the support of our family, friends and businesses such as The Carlyle Suites.

I am staying for 4 nights in one of the prettiest rooms inside the beltway. I'm looking out 4 windows (that open!), two of them forming the corner of a building, into a beautiful view of light, air, and the DuPont circle neighborhood. The kitchen/dining area is a beautiful nook with a glass table. Air and light everywhere. But my room was "luck of the draw." And lucky I was, getting a corner suite. I'd book here again in a heartbeat, but would select one of the higher end rooms. It's worth it. In peeking in the other rooms, they seem nice as well, but not as spacious.

One annoying detail. I wrote this review and then the wifi went out. Luckily I had saved the text so pasted it back in.

Room Tip: Rooms 03 and 08 seem to be the front of the building corner rooms. Not sure which correspond in the...

Unfortunately, I was disappointed with my stay at Carlyle. While the Grande Suite we occupied was nicely furnished, there was one particular issue that made for an uncomfortable visit. A few days into our 5-night stay, I noticed that the air conditioning was not turning on even at the coldest stetting. The unit had been working the first two days of our visit. Although the weather was on the cool side, there were a couple of days around 70 degrees and the room became quite warm and stuffy. I reported the issue to the front desk and I was told that the air conditioning was turned off in favor of the heat because the weather had turned cool. The only alternative I was offered was to open my windows. I find it inconceivable that you would not be able to control the temperature of your own room. Furthermore, the room was never cool enough to even require the heat being turned on. With spring in full bloom and having hay fever allergies, keeping the window open was not really a good option...and it rained for two of the days. Upon returning home I received a "how was your stay" email from the "Vice President" of Carlyle hotels. I provided this feedback and after more than a week, never even received an acknowledgement, never mind an apology.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor room in case of street noise. Stay someplace else if you want to control your...
