Easy access to Metro, White Hose, Mall, etc. IF you are a walker. Very welcoming,professional and responsive staff. They were happy to change rooms to 2 beds when my son flew in from CA. Great catering staff and food. Clean and comfortable. A little dated and can be very expensive. My on-line rate with tax etc. was a reasonable $180. When I tried to add 1 night, they wanted $479! Needless to say, we went somewhere else.
The hotel staff were excellent and very helpful with restaurant suggestions and transportation. The room smelled very bad; like a mixture of body odor, Old Spice, and onions. I left the window open all day and it didn't improve.
The hotel staff was great and I liked that they had parking. The room was nice & location was great. Everything about the hotel was great. One of the reasons I liked it was because it was smoke-free however, the room smelt of smoke the last night we stayed and even again in the early morning before we checked out. Not the hotels fault, was just disappointing.
I liked the location, the staff was very friendly, and the complimentary water. We had issues with our air conditioning which we told the staff about but nothing was fixed and our room was muggy and damp.
Rooms were very clean. Beds were comfortable. Very nice outdoor pool with plenty of lounge chairs, an outdoor bar and poolside table for eating. Parking at the hotel was perfect. Bathroom was slightly small but very clean.
The staff was very freindly, bed's and pillows were very comfortable, breakfast was delicious. Grear location in our Nation's Capital.
Microwave access would have been very convenient.
From the moment we stepped out of our rental car the hotel staff was friendly, courteous, and helpful. We had just come in to DC from two days of flying and driving and right away the hotel staff made us feel right at home. They carried our bags, helped us with transportation in DC by pointing us in the right direction, and even gave us apples on our way out for the day. We had never been to DC and have 2 small children and did all the sight seeing we could pack in for 2 days. The location of the hotel was great. One night the weather was great and we all enjoyed the walk through the city back and forth from the Washington Monument. It is quite the walk, so if you are not up for it we also took a cab and used Lyft in which every place only cost about 10.00 to get a ride to and from the hotel. I also feel compelled to mention that maybe it was the look on our faces when we stepped out of our car after the long traveling experince with 2 small kids, but whatever it was they upgraded our room to a balcony! I think her name was Elena that offered the upgrade, and it was very much appreciated!
Interesting restaurants nearby
Close to attractions Parking
Friendly staff, clean and attractive, excellent hotel for the price! Bar closes too early. Minor problems with accessories in room.
Most friendly staff I've ever encountered at a hotel.
Friendly helpful staff in downtown DC. The air conditioning in the room wasn't very good. It didn't feel like it dropped below 70F while set to 60F in November.
Friendly, attentive staff. Clean rooms and facilities. Location is within walking distance of many places to eat and a short ride from the national mall. Would stay again. Very cold lobby/restaurant/bar area. Thermostat in room kept malfunctioning. The maintenance guy brought us a space heater at one point. Requested shampoo at one point and three different staff people delivered some three separate times. Very friendly, but obviously some lack of communication. Staff was very apologetic about the thermostat and offered us a variety of comps.
Staff very helpfil. Close to DC metro and attraction
The room was made up in typical Hilton style with decent bedding/bathroom stuff. This hotels has seen better days. One of the elevators was out of service (seemingly for a long time - a piece of tape covering the outside) the button to the elevator was cracked, and the whole thign was worryingly slowly and creaky. The room itself smelled musty - like it hadn't been aired out in years. Outside the window was the HVAC system which was *loud*. It was a crazy-horrible room. My best guess is that because Kayak booked the room through Priceline Hilton felt it was okay to give me the worst room they could find. I checked out immediately and went to another hotel nearby for the same price, but with a much nicer room and hotel in general.
It was right downtown near the white house and monuments, so we could walk everywhere Everything closes down so it's hard to find a late night restaurant or pharmacy
Excellent location for much of downtown DC. Around Midnight my room filled with old cigarette smoke as someone began smoking in the stairwell. The air quality overall in my particular room was poor, requiring the windows to be opened as much as possible. This of course made it difficult to sleep as the city sounds in DC near The White House are loud and replete with sirens 24/seven. Normally, one might cover one's ears to have silence. However, at this hotel the pillows are the size for small children.
Proximity to WH
The location and comfort here is great! Overall very good value!! The room was a little tight. Room had empty box of tissues, could of been a bit cleaner, dust.
The hotel was very nice and extremely close to all the sites (just blocks from the White House). The room, service, and location were far above what I would expect for the price. Would stay here again and will recommend to anyone visiting the DC area.
I did not like the fact I had to pay valet for parking or find my own. I feel if I m paying for the comfort of staying out of town then that is something that should be included.
The staff was warm and welcoming from the moment I stepped through the door with my 12 year old. I detest the hold hotels put on your credit card and don't release for days and was told I could pay the $50 incidental in cash (which I received back at checkout before the housekeeper had even cleaned the room). The room was indeed small with only 1 bed which would have been a problem if I hadn't been traveling with family. However, it was clean, along with the bathroom. I did whack my elbow against the wall as I was showering as the stall was a bit cramped. We received great instructions on how to make our way to the White House and monuments - - all within walking distance. We finished our running around a bit early so we took advantage of the 2nd floor lounge for about a half hour before heading back to Union Station. There was an industrial coffee/espresso/cappuccino maker, tea bags, newspapers, a big screen tv set to CNN, a charging station, computers etc. The rooms are too small for friends to convene comfortably so the lounge is a nice spot. Convenience: A block away from the Circulator, a block away from the Farragut North and Farragut West station (it is actually on top of the Farragut West station, however, the entrance is closed so it's necessary to walk to the other side a block down). The complimentary bottled water saved us some money and we surely took advantage. The shower was uncomfortably small for a tall lanky person like me. Whacking my elbow against the wall isn't something I expect to happen in a hotel (usually hotel bathrooms are more comfy than my micro bathroom at home in NYC). Also, the room did not have a mini fridge which would have been nice for our leftovers. The hotel is downtown so the area at night is sparse (still feels safe though). You'll need to take a little walk to find some good breakfast if you set out early on a weekend because the nearby places are either never open on the weekends or only open closer to 9 am.
We went to DC to celebrate my husband's birthday for a long weekend. We looked for a long time online and a lot of the offering was overpriced for the amenities available. The Club Quarters was a great find!!!! The staff was very helpful throughout our stay. There is an espresso bar on the 2nd floor!! We were a few blocks from all the greatest attractions, walked to every site. Never had to take a cab or the Metro. Overall, we had a wonderful stay and will come back. We found a gem in D.C. and will be recommending it to our family and friends.
This is a great hotel, simple and convenient. The rooms are small, but quiet and the location is perfect. Right next to the metro and near the White House and mall. A little small... but otherwise great.
The location 24 hr coffee station clean rooms Small room configured & supplied for the single business traveler. One bath towel 4 the family.
Location, convenience Rooms are dated, small and dark
Well maintained older hotel convenient to restaurants and tourist attractions. Nice linens and towels. Great cocktail lounge. Friendly and welcoming service. Street noise; will bring earplugs next time.
We were in DC to visit our son at GWH. Clean and efficient. Perfect location to the occasion. The bed could have been positioned 90° to the 8' room width.
Staff and free snacks were great. Nothing
food and service was good My husband and i were given an end corner room 302 that was way to small and gave a confined effect. We spent as much time out of the room as possible. Parking was also difficult due to lack of easy access to our vehicle asit was in an underground garrage.
The location for downtown dc couldn't be better, and staff was excellent and very helpful Room was small but for the price value of everything else it didn't matter
Modern and sleek. Staff was fantastic. Location couldn't be better. Heated bathroom floors! No recycling. Hallways were cold.
Location, staff, decent facilities, lively bar. Wi-fi was awful (almost non-existent), gym under renovation, but at least they worked something out with the club up the street.
One of the maintenance staff opened the door while I was in my room.
Hotel staff were always attentive and helpful.
Nice decor and amenities, good restaurant and bar, friendly , responsive staff , great location
I had reserved and paid for a room a week before I was scheduled to arrive. When I finally got there at 11:15p after a long day of travel, the front desk clerk informed me that they had NO ROOM available for me. He gave me a "voucher" for a "nearby" hotel, handed me a $20 bill and hailed me a cab. This other hotel was miles away, not nearly as nice or well-located, and had no idea what was going on. I received no follow-up from the Dupont Circle Hotel management or staff to make sure everything was ok, no less a complimentary stay or anything. And the kicker: as of today (4 days after this debacle) the $1000+ charge for my room is STILL on my credit card (i.e., no refund). I will never, ever stay at this hotel again, and neither should you.
Great location and extremely friendly staff. The gym had minimal equipment and there is no pool.
Location, Cafe DuPont and Bar DuPont Terrible reservation system. I believe they intentionally overbook the hotel and end up turning away guests. WiFi is terrible. No connection during my 5 nights even after daily complaints. Night front desk staff is mediocre.
The ideal location in Dupont Circle Washington D.C. over-shadowed some of the quirks in the room configuration. Very nice bar & restaurant in the lobby. Not much room to hang clothes or unpack clothes. The lighting in the room and bathroom could have been brighter. The TV could have been on an extension arm or situated in the center of the room. The door-less shower stall was a bit messy.
Stay was wonderful! Great location near Metro and restaurants..would definitely book again in future! Pillows were too soft and room seemed very warm.
The hotel staff was very cordial. Very busy and active bar in the hotel. Breakfast from the hotel restaurant was good. The room was clean and very modern. Beds were very comfortable. Access to the closet was limited due to the proximity of the bed to the closet doors - couldn't open the doors enough.
The location can not be beat in DC. It's right in the middle of Dupont Circle with bars, restaurants, embassies, the metro and access to many buses. Staff was very very vice. I loved their Aromatherapy toiletries. No breakfast, There's not real refrigerator in the room. Also the room was small and didn't have a separate bathroom. The bathroom was separated by half a glass wall. I did not like this. If a colleague or friend came over, it would be so awkward for them to use the bathroom. Cleanliness was OKAY, def not up to par considering the price of the hotel. For example, the couch pillow had a stain on it.
The staff was very freindly and attentive and the hotel itself is beautiful. The fitness center was impressive. There was no wi-fi availbale in our room and we had to pay 13$ per day for internet acess.
We absolutely loved our stay at The Mayflower. My husband and I were there to renew our vows on our anniversary and the staff were extremely welcoming, making sure our room was ready several hours before normal heck-in hours so that we could get dressed and off to the ceremony in time. I can't think of a single thing that was less than exemplary- the loveliest hotel in DC!
incredible suite for the price... they tried to put me in a regular dbl room when I checked in! Reminded them I had booked and been confirmed by their reservations mgr for a suite with 2 dbl beds.
Beautiful lobby, great DC location, helpful staff, lovely room. A value I don't understand but was happy to have. Lovely room. It was great! As a group we did not enjoy breakfast in the restaurant.
I came in at 4 and there was no water or mini-bar in the room. They told me that if I wanted a Diet Coke I would need to wait until room service was open at 5. In the morning, they didn't fill the breakfast order -- said they didn't get it. This for $400 a night? Hardly 4 star service.
Everything exceeded my expectations. The room was clean and the bed was super comfortable. Loved the rainfall shower. The valet fee is overpriced. We were unable to get into our room because our lock needed to be charged. This was an inconvenience.
Good customer service Very expensive hotel. The movies in the rooms are 20$ each. No HBO or any good channels really. Restaurant in the hotel is outrageously expensive (making room service also very expensive). 10$ for bowl of cereal, 25$ for shorts tack of pancakes. Food is really bad too. Like surprisingly very bad. Soggy fries, Bad salads,sandwiches, pizzas
Very Clean Comfortable beds
Everyone was very helpful & attentive!
Valet parking was extremely slow and expensive
I liked the late check out option. The bed was extremely comfortable. The room was very clean. The front desk attempted to charge me for wifi even though my reservation included wifi. They expected me to pay or go out to use the public library in the common areas. After a visit back down to the front desk they provided me with an access code.
Within walking distance of tourist sites and great restaurants. Comfortable beds! Hotel bar had great happy hour and the bartender made the perfect old fashioned with love.
no self-parking. valet parking only. when I tried to do valet parking, they didn't allow me to do it.
Overall the property was excellent! A foul order in ventilation system.
60 dollars for valet parking no other option
I think I got bit... there was something biting
Location The staff (including management) did not respond adequately to their system being down during check in. Problems like that are expected but management did not issue an apology to all guests waiting in line for 30+ minutes and did not show the urgency to find an alternate way to check in all the guests affected by the hotel's system outage.
The beds were very comfortable, the decor is very stylish and the staff couldn't have been more welcome and helpful. The perfect place to stay in DC near great restaurants, the metro, cool neighborhood. Will stay again!
The renovation & new decor is pretty much complete! The hotel looks beautiful! The facility is great, comfy, and has a lot to offer. Our stay was okay and went smoothly. The young man who checked us out on Sunday was super friendly and very nice! (wish we would've had him at check in) Check in at 1am was a bit rough and staff was not very friendly. Being giving some information or offer of any help or to answer questions would have been nice. Knowing about the breakfast foods in the AM would have made things a little nicer also.
Very cool rooftop pool and bar geared towards adults with excellent live DJ. Gay-friendly atmosphere. Clean and modern furnishings. Fun, young vibe. Service could have been more professional. Hotel seemed understaffed. Pool area needs more lounge chairs as seating was very limited. Rooftop bar offerings were limited and bartender skill was somewhat below expectations for such a cool space.
Staff attitude was terrible. It took over 25 minutes to check in at one o'clock in the morning. The lobby was dirty and dusty and the construction elevator came to bring me to my room had all sorts of debris . I was woken up to a fire alarm and walked down 8 flights of partially (dangerous) lit stairwell. When I arrived in the lobby it was thankfully declared a false alarm . I checked out of the hotel out of breath unshowered and a disheveled mess.
Ideal location. Some issues with the AC. It was ok, just not ideal.
This hotel has just been totally renovated, it is literally steps away from a metro station (key in DC). I stayed here at the last minute recently and will be back.
Nothing Small room and very noisy
The Embassy Row is a trendy well-decorated hotel in a modern style, recently renovated. Excellent location, nice rooftop with small pool. Good food on rooftop... they have a limited selection but only $10 for each item at the grill. The staff seemed confused at every turn whenever we asked a question, particularly about pool access. They were friendly but unclear. The hotel charged us an extra $10 per day for amenities without fully explaining this ahead of time. When we asked about this upon check-out, front desk staff said it is for wi-fi, rooftop, fitness center, etc. Why is that not just included in the nightly rate? Also, parking is very expensive ($45/night).
It was a beautiful hotel, and the staff was very friendly. There were no ice machines, the wifi never worked the whole time we were there and they charged you for it. We had to call maintenance 4 times because AC would not turn off.
Great location, very trendy, rooftop pool and bar excellent! Parking a little pricey, small but clean (and cute) rooms
Beautiful and clean We were given a handicapped room and the bathroom facilities made it difficult to shower and relax. We were also told there was no charge on parking when booking and then charged.
Embassy Row is a gorgeous area to stay. The interior design aesthetic was fun and well done! It was easy to relax and feel comfortable. The "Adult Rec Room" was a fun detail as well. Never did I see the staff without a smile. They were eager to help with everything from handling wet umbrellas to dining recommendations . Very close to the Metro, so navigating was a breeze. The A/C is loud inside the rooms. (But only a problem if you're a light sleeper.)
Loved the style and the service. We just missed wine hour so they gave us a couple of beers instead. Room was great. Very comfy. Rooms were a bit small but not an issue at all!
location near the Metro and good neighborhood. This was our second stay at the Carlyle and would go back again.
they were so kind to us and our dogs-- super helpful!
Nice room, great location, enjoyable breakfast priced right
We were close to all attractions and the staff was great!!!
I liked the quality presentation of authentic art deco style. N/A
We heard a dog barking and were immediately moved to a lovely room. The concierge helped us try to get a taxi under very difficult circumstances.
Quiet and nice
Loved it... Got a free room upgrade.... I would stay there again the next time I'm in DC
very helpful staff parking --too few spaces
The room, location and jazz brunch. heating throughout the room-bedroom gets extremely hot and heat does not transfer to the living room area. No thermastat exists in the living area for control of heat.
good space in the suite; complimentary shoeshine no lotion in bathroom, and no newspapers delivered to room
Rooms were clean and comfortable Prices in the coffee shop downstairs were too high
Did not use facilities,,GREAT staff,, upgraded room...BEAUTIFUL None
the renovations are finished the location is good the price was still right the walls are thick and I've never heard my neighbors free breakfast isn't included anymore will the price start to rise as people discover this place?
Good location, friendly staff, clean rooms ... To sum up a very good hotel.
Everything starting from staff, facility and location to restaurants as well as transportation.
The staff was freindly, my family enjoyed the restaurants around, felt safe, happy and it was the correct choice for me.
convenient location, nice neighbourhood, clean and spacious rooms. rather sloppy service at the M Street Bar & Grill
the location the room facilities very expensive on weekdays.
Very clean, comfortable, and modern. It is currently under construction in the hotel lobby, but it was never bothersome to us. We could not hear it even from the elevator! Great place to stay
fully equipped kitchen
The room was lovely, and the staff was courteous, helpful and efficient.
Outstanding service and courtesy were the hallmarks of our stay here. The room was immaculate and well cared for. The location was perfect for everything we wanted to see and do. The conceirge was outstanding in his helpfulness. No coffee maker in the room, yikes, missed that first, fast heart- starting cup.
friendly staff,premium location.
Everything about the hotel was fantastic, the staff were very courteous and helpful and all made a point of knowing my 7 year old son's name. Not applicable.
Location was great. Wonderful room. Two good restaurants with great staff but a bit expensive. All staff members were great! Fitness room was available even in this boutique setting. My son lost his stuffed animal while we were there and they left a new one in the room for him - it made him very happy (they later found his but let him keep the new one, "Freddie". Restaurant was too expensive, especially for breakfast. Fitness room was a bit small.
Very comfortable and pleasant stay . Excellent service and perfect location.
Classic feel. Excellent bathroom with up-to-date but classic style fixtures. A/C was noisy in my room. I used earplugs to sleep and it was fine after that.
King-size bed, bath tub, robe provided Slow internet, load air system, small bedroom
coosiness the elevator is really outdated
I love "historic hotels" and this is a really nice one, with the upgrades that matter--excellent, comfortable beds, free internet, good location, helpful staff. You have to climb up stairs from the tiny lobby to the main floor. Is there wheel-chair access? I couldn't tell.
Great location, walk to anywhere. Spacious room with separate kitchenette. Elegant and stylish. My wife enjoyed the makeup table in the room. Helpful staff. Noisy HVAC. Slow draining shower / tub with slippery bottom. Not enough outlets to power all our devices at once.
The room was bright, clean and nicely decorated. The bed was very comfortable and the kitchenette was fantastic! Stocked with the best shortbread cookies! The double doors were unnecessary. Bathroom was a bit small.
woman checking me in on 11/22 was great. very comfortable bed. great location.nice tv, internet hookup great, concierge very nice and helpful. unfortunately, i was not given the wake up call at 5 15 am like i requested.also, it was tricky to adjust the thermostat to desirable temperature.
People were nice, exellent location, free internet, complementary water / news paper/ gym/coffee/ very cozy coffee machine broke
Friendliness of the staff
Location, location, location. And nice employees. Garage charge for the rental car was bit pricey.
Hotel was conveniently located and quiet generally. Since I only stayed for one night I did have time to form any strong opinions on the place. I thought the price was high but perhaps not given the address on Penn. Ave. The staff failed to inform me when room was available having arrived early in the morning.
The location The price
Comfortable beds and attentive front desk staff. Some inattention to housekeeping in a room with a Murphy bed.
It was a clean hotel with nice people. misleading when looking online, it looks bigger than it is. But it wasn't too bad. They do not have complimentary breakfast. It's over priced for what you get.
good facilities;helpful staff had to request tea/coffee maker and a refrigerator coffee/milk supplies not replenished daily
The staff was great and the room was very nice. The breakfast was terrific much better than expected for $1.Ut was a overall great experenice.
It was so busy/ room service was 30 minutes later
Good location, helpful staff poor plumbing, below average food and very high cost of room service
Rooms needed to be dusted. Mini bar is electronic and not a refrigerator; DO NOT TOUCH or you will be charged.
very attentive staff and very positive feeling
My room was very nice and well maintained by the housekeeping staff. The front of house staff were also very cordial. Charging $12.95 per day for internet service is unreasonable, based on the room rate we were charged.
very helpful concierge. Decent location
good location, nice staff
The hotel is ideally located in that it is walking distance to the White House and the Washington Monument. The room was also nicely appointed and clean. The staff was very nice and responsive. Service was on par with a 5 star experience. We booked the premier room through Kayak. The room we were give. Was TINY - e.g. distance between dresser and the bed was probably less than 2 feet. If I were a solo traveler, this would not have been a problem. However, with a toddler, this became an immediate safety concern. We upgraded to a deluxe room.
The staff was very friendly and knew our names quickly.
The staff were extreamly helpful and went out of their way to make sure our stay was a very good expericance.
very friendly staff and clean room with good linen.location is convenient room too small
Impeccable service and great location.
- Facilities were great - Hotel rooms comfortable and spacious - Very nice Gym facilities - Front desk staff very welcoming and corporative - Room wasn't ready on time - Staff in lobby area; not so friendly - Corridors were very warm
The staff are great and go out of their way to make your stay perfect. Meticulously clean.
Service was excellent They changed me an extra 200 dollars when I checked into the hotel, despite prepaying on Kayak
Location. Easy walk to many attractions as well as to my business destination.
The hotel in a very nice location and the room very comfort. they give to me Room No 403 we can't sleep because of the noise of the air-condations from out side. and the hotel staff are not frindly
