Why We Love It

  • The Foggy Bottom neighborhood sits between the White House to the east and Georgetown to the west
  • About two blocks from a Metro station, where trains make stops at the National Mall and Smithsonian
  • Every room is a suite, and most have a kitchen and a balcony
  • Free Wi-Fi for all guests, and an outdoor pool open seasonally

One Washington Circle sits on its namesake roundabout in the Foggy Bottom neighborhood, which occupies "an enviable location" (Gayot) between Georgetown to the west, George Washington University straight south and the White House a few blocks to the east. 

Even the smallest room at the hotel, measuring 360 square feet, is about 50% larger than the average hotel room in this city. All rooms have a kitchen or kitchenette, as well as walk-out balconies. Guests receive complimentary bottled water in the room, and there's complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the hotel Longer-term guests will enjoy the fact that you can order from the nearby Trader Joe's to stock your kitchen. 

The on-site Circle Bistro features American cuisine and the bar offers classic cocktails and a variety of craft beers. The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts is within a 15-minute walk, making this is a great place for theatergoers.

We did not get the room we booked. I noticed that we had a small room when we got in. I also noticed that we ended up with a queen size bed (instead of King) and with no balcony. I went downstairs to check if we were put in a wrong room by mistake. I was told by the receptionist that 'when you use a third party to book rooms your room choice is not guaranteed'. Which I found very strange. He told me that they don't have any available rooms, so they couldn't move us. When I wanted to talk to a hotel manager, he went inside an office, came back few minutes later to confirm his previous statement, but offered $20 off. I had to take it since the next option was to leave the hotel and look for another place (or go home) in a downpour. This experience left me with bad taste with this hotel and with this deal. I made the reservation very long time ago and I expected to get what I asked for. Other than that, the room was very clean and the valet parking staff were nice.

This hotel is officially my home away from home in DC! The staff were unbelievably accommodating and kind, and my room was bigger than my own apartment at home, with 2 bathrooms, a large living room, dining room, full kitchen and separate bedroom. Best of all - I had a massive terrace overlooking Washington Circle, which I wish I could have taken more advantage of! Overall, I didn't feel like I was staying at a hotel and felt like I was in my own apartment. I would absolutely recommend to anyone looking to stay in Foggy Bottom!

The bed was super comfy! And the location was superb.

Only problem was the noise of the sliding doors onto the balcony. We apparently had smokers next to us and they kept opening that noisy door every 10 minutes or so.

Thank you to all of the staff who helped us during our stay January 6-9, 2018. Tommy, Ross. Emanuel and I forgot the nice woman's name all did a great job in welcoming us to the hotel. With a smile and positive attitude, they gave us great restaurants to try, Whole Foods directions, umbrellas and a great room on the top floor that had a window so I could have fresh air and breathe better. I had been sick from all of the heaters at our prior locations and needed to have fresh air. The bed and pillows were the most comfortable out of any place I have stayed. We truly appreciated having a microwave, hot water kettle and coffee maker with fresh beans to grind in our room. We normally stayed at the Washington Inn but wanted to try a new location and I am glad we did. Thank you One Washington Circle Team for making our final leg of our 3 -week vacation a warm welcome, magic moment and fond farewell. I worked in Hospitality for over 20+ years and we left very happy. Thank you everyone! JoJo & Vic, Nipomo, CA

Bring earplugs if you are a lite sleeper like me as the hospital is across the street and you will hear the sirens if you do not have them in your ears. Great feature is you do not have to go far if you need a hospital. My MAC earplugs are the best.
