What’s not to love about the boutique Kimpton Carlyle, D.C.? Located in central Dupont Circle, on a leafy block close to shopping, bars, and restaurants plus a metro stop (the only way to navigate the busy city) it’s the ideal headquarters to tour Washington. The national geographic museum is also within walking distance of the hotel.
As with all Kimptons’s, there’s a welcoming common space with comfy couches and chairs, and the always-popular evening (free) wine hour. There’s also gratis tea and coffee in the morning and bike loaners, should you want to cycle your way through the metropolis.
Just steps from your room you’ll find The Riggsby, which is akin to an upscale European pub with romantic and cozy lighting. It was named one of the best restaurants in DC and the chef has the prestigious title of “Best Chef in the Northeast” by the James Beard Foundation.
