Dining

Cafe & Bar Dupont
In an area with some of the very best restaurants and bars DC has to offer, Cafe & Bar Dupont more than holds its own. The fashionable, minimalist interior showcases a menu of unique French-influenced dishes with a modern twist, along with the legendary weekend brunch. Cooked with rigorously sourced, organic produce from our neighboring farmers market, our dishes take French influences from the city's history and channel them into true contemporary classics. The Dupont Bar buzzes after dark as guests and locals rub shoulders with Washington's hip crowd, all in pursuit of a perfectly mixed cocktail or a fine vintage.

Good for Family

I was in town with my Family(who came over from overseas) for sight seeing. This hotel is at the perfect location, 10 minutes ride from the mall and lots of nice restaurants around. Bar in the hotel is nice as well, lots of activity during the weekend. Overall a nice experience. Room service is okay, not the quickest I would say but good.

Very nice hotel

Our family stayed 4 nights for a vacation. We booked the grand deluxe room which was worth every penny. The room is big enough for our toddler to run around and it has an awesome view. Hotel is very clean and the service was very good. Location is awesome because it's close to the metro, stores and sightseeing areas. Everything was above expectations except the comfort of the bed. The beds were too soft for us.

It was not the best, I guess.

- Parking : I did not know I have to pay for Parking other than the whole payment I paid when it stated that parking was in it. - Wi-fi : It was horrible. We were trying to use our Ipad and it wouldn't connect to the wi-fi. It would only connect once in awhile but keep disconnecting. We couldn't watch a movie we wanted. - Front desk people weren't very friendly and helpful.

Networking event trip

As soon as we arrived, there was someone there asking us if we needed anything. I really appreciated the efficiency of the check-in process and that I was always called by name, even when calling the front desk for something. Overall, it was a great hotel in a very convenient location!

excellent stay

The hotel is delightful, light and modern with grat amenities (an addition of a coffee maker would have taken the rating to maximum). Location is superb, with all the jogging routes nea, restaurants and sights, as well as key offices relevant to my stay. Tstaff is super friendly, and attentive. I was so pleased to discover this old lady renovated to a sleek and elegant choice of accommodation. Batroom is clean and amenities were of good qualtiy.bed linens are fantastic and I had an excellent sleep. No complaints. Would recommend. The price value was rather affected by my timing, at the start of the World Bank Spring meetings. I will come back.

The BEST experience I've ever had!

The customer service, the staff, the bellhop, the price, the location, the amenities (including free wifi) the overall experience was one of the best! I booked a King superior but they did a complimentary upgrade for my room because it was my birthday (so I think it was the Deluxe) They welcomed me with smiles and open arms (even opened the doors for me) when I arrived. They catered to my every need, helped me out with the espresso machine and gave me a 2 hour late checkout!! Are you kidding me? I've stayed at so many hotels that a 2 hour late checkout is rare, it's usually an hour at the most. Carson, Tamara and especially Lyneka was so nice to me. I called as soon as I made the reservation and we (Lyneka and I) talked for almost 10 minutes, she made me feel welcomed before I even started my trip. If the hotel that I am staying at doesn't have comfort, the customer service relations can go a long way. The heated floors and the espresso machine in my room didn't work at the time, but I made one phone call and they sent an engineer and a replacement in less than 10 minutes. the amenities (including aroma therapy lotions, shampoo, shoe polisher, vanity package, night masks, iHome radio etc) were the best. I stayed for 2 nights, and they replaced it 3 times. my room came with 2 bathrobes and slippers and they said the slippers were mine to keep! The location was everything to me. busy streets, so it is easier to walk. the valet parking is $30 with in and out privileges, but I don't know the city and i didn't want to drive so I just parked and left my car for my stay in another parking garage. I think I called the front desk like 20x during my stay and each time they did not show any sign of frustration, in fact they insist that it was not a problem for calling. I would definitely stay at this hotel again!
