Why We Love It

  • Three and a half easy walking blocks to the hip Dupont Circle neighborhood, as well as a Red Line metro station facilitating direct access to Smithsonian museums and the zoo
  • Many of the large rooms contain kitchenettes and pull-out couches, making this a good value option for families or large parties
  • Free Wi-Fi and parking
  • Despite being set in a stately art deco building, this is a relatively hidden gem

Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Located among the shops, restaurants and nightlife of Washington DC's hip Dupont Circle neighborhood, and just three and a half blocks from a Red Line metro station, providing direct access to downtown, the Smithsonian museums and the zoo, the Carlyle Suites Hotel is a relatively hidden gem in one of the city's most desirable areas. 

Art-deco-style guest rooms are spacious and contain kitchenettes and many have pull-out couches. This makes them a good choice for families or large parties looking to save some money on meals and extra accommodations. Free Wi-Fi and parking are additional value perks. 

Those looking for bend-over-backwards service won't find it here--room service is limited to restaurant hours and staff are friendly but there's no concierge. However those looking for a great spot in the city, with solid service and amenities and large, comfortable suites will be very happy here.

I wouldn't know since they did not honor my reservation.

TRAVELZOO was a disaster. I was notified the day before my trip that the hotel had overbooked and that I was being moved to a Holiday Inn Gardens in Bethesda, MD....totally unacceptable since I was flying into DCA. Also- I was left scrambling for a hotel room with very little notice and most hotels were sold out. Interestingly, the Carlyle was showing availability for $1,000/night for the same night I was supposed to stay there. It appears that my reservation was bounced so thay could make more money on another guest.
