Very close to Dupont Circle subway. Nice area surrounded by embassies hence name.
Hotel was very pleasant with lovely hall carpets and nice chandeliers. Room was spacious and lovely and quiet at back-didnt take up option for better view as only there 3 n. TV reception seemed poor some channels poor picture. Comfortable stay and staff were pleasant.Some nice restaurants in area to choose. Feel hotel could have promoted own restaurant/cafe more as room brochure didnt appear to list anything.
This is a lovely quiet hotel with old school charm. We had room 805 on the top floor. This comprises a large dual aspect bedroom with a large bathroom and good walk-in wardrobe / cupboard space.for clothes. The bed was spacious and very comfortable with its quality covers and fluffy pillows. Well equipped with a fridge, hairdryer, iron & board, tea & coffee making.
The breakfast was average with limited choices.
Dinner and wine were overpriced with small portion dishes.and odd choices.
Still a lovely place to sat and with a metro station nearby to be able to see all that DC has to offer in tourist attractions.
