"Proximity to monuments, subway, grocery store. The hotel was very clean, in a beautiful neighborhood. Not super updated but I think it gives it character. We will stay here again. The rooms were spacious and even have kitchenettes. Staff was very friendly."

From the Metro, it is a five-minute walk to the hotel. Valet parking is available for $40 (Monday-Thursday) and $25 (Friday-Sunday) plus tax. 

Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


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, along with a fitness center and a seasonal outdoor pool. Pets stay free -- the staff even has a list of dog-friendly nearby parks -- and 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 like grilled salmon and poblano pepper ravioli, while the bar offers classic cocktails and a variety of craft beers. The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts is within a 15-minute walk, and George Washington University's campus begins about two blocks away, where there's also a Metro station. Trains from here reach the National Mall in a couple of stops and can also take guests directly to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.

From the press:

The room was more like a small apartment with a separate bedroom living room kitchen, bathroom and a small balcony. The hotel also had a nice pool area and a workout room. The decor of the Hotel and room was old and could've been updated that the bathroom was redone. The only negative aspect of the room was that we heard police sirens all night long, which made it difficult to sleep.
