Well, it appears it went from the penthouse yesterday to the outhouse today with Kaf and the girls mixing it with, as Madge puts it, the great unwashed at Penn Railway Station.
To allow Kaf and the girls the chance to experience all things American, Madge included a train trip from New York to DC.
The girls have completed the three and a …
Today we got up early to tour the Library of Congress. We arrived at 8:30 and the tour was wonderful. The library is beautiful. The tour took about two hours and then we wanted to eat lunch. We found a sandwich shop called Cozi. It was good. Bob and I had sandwiches, Evan and Landon had pizzas. After lunch we headed to Air and Space. I separated …
Slept great...off around 10 am for another great sightseeing day in DC. Grabbed a breakfast treat at Panera's and then took the metro over to the Federal Triangle metro stop and walked over to the American History Museum. Walked around the museum for a couple hours and then headed over for a US Capitol tour thru Gabrielle Gifford's office. We also …
We came in from College Park, MD. We just spent five days at the U of M with Odyssey of the Mind World Finals. Seven us headed to DC on the metro. It took about 20 minutes and we changed from the green line to red at Chinatown then onto Dupont Circle to walk to our hotel. Our hotel was about a 10 minute walk down Embassy row. We enjoyed the walk …

How has this hotel rated in the past?
Had a lovely stay at Carlyle Suites. It is a relatively small hotel however the rooms are quite rooming. Did not have the amenities of a large hotel but the staff was very nice and helpful. I would recommend this hotel for people who want to escape the crowds of Washington and retreat to a quiet place in the evening.

Historical Traveler Reviews Carlyle Suites Hotel Washington DC
Last summer (6/04) our family of four stayed for five days at the Carlyle, and I would definitely stay there again. While it does have a few rough edges (a very slow elevator, and no easy place to put your suitcase in the room,) it was all we had hoped for in an affordable suite/hotel. The location in near Dupont Circle is ideal, you are in a lovely residential neighborhood with restaurants and a Safeway nearby, and the small kitchen saved us quite a bit on food bills! At first, the room we were given was not what we had reserved, but the staff quickly remedied that, and put us in a corner suite which was much more roomy. I would suggest booking directly with the hotel and requesting a corner suite. We were fortunate with parking- it is first-come-first-served, but we were able to find a parking place from the first day. Fortunately, with the proximity to Metro, we never needed to move the car! This is a neighborhood of young, working professionals, so I might not have enjoyed this hotel as much if I was travelling with young children.
Great, beautiful hotel
My husband and I stayed at the Carlyle January 2005, and had the best experience. These are the most beautiful rooms, I had ever seen in all my many years of travel. The staff was very helpful and the overall experience was GREAT! This will definitely be our home away from home, when we visit DC again.
You must experience it. Highly recommended.
There is no parking
We selected this hotel because they advertised Free Parking and we were driving into the city. They have parking for 8 sub-compact cars. Our van was not going to fit even if there had been room. The next morning I was glad that we were unable to park. The cars that did park behind the hotel were completely blocked in. The only parking is in a structure several blocks away and costing $26 per day. There is no street parking.
The rooms were very nice. It was a good location, but since they lied I would not stay here again. I would stay further out and take the metro in. The metro is very easy to use.
First the positives: great location , nifty little but very functional kitchenette , free email ( when it works) and good price.
Would stay here again
My husband and I spent six nights at the Carlyle Suites. It was only a few pleasant blocks from the Metro and Dupont Circle. Our suite was the cleanest I've ever stayed in. You couldn't find a stray hair anywhere in the bathroom. We didn't have any view and one of the elevators was either out of order or slow but the accommodations were very comfortable. There isn't much parking available either at the hotel or on the street. We would stay here again.
Stayed at the Carlye for 8 nights in August and enjoyed our stay! Large clean room with pull out sofa--all new furnishings, carpet, granite counter tops, and kitchenettes have plates, silverware, cookware. About 4 blocks from Dupont Metro stop. Free internet access in bar (wasn't always working but when it did, it was great as many DC hotels charge for access). Safeway grocery store about 2 1/2 blocks away.
Pleasant and Inviting
We recently returned from a 5-night stay at the Carlyle in Dupont Circle. (3/04) We (2 adults and a teenager) found our accomodations comfortable, very attractive, clean, quiet and convenient to restaurants and the subway. Four large windows provided an interesting city view from our top floor suite. The living room area sofa converted into a third large bed. The separate kitchen was small but spotless...everything one might need to prepare snacks and small meals if not gourmet dinners. We found the staff to be helpful and well- organized. After long days of sightseeing, this hotel suite provided an inviting, restful retreat.
I stayed here with a group last spring. They were in the process of renovating the hotel, a fact that they neglected to tell us ahead of time. I am on tour with a show, so our late night schedule means we sleep late. The construction was mind-numbing and loud (literally jackhammers on the other side of my wall) and started at 8:30 each morning.
The front desk staff were rude and inattentive during my whole stay and then as I checked out the worst one tried to schmooze me into staying there again next time I come to DC. The elevators don't usually work and if they do expect to wait a while. It is, however, only 3 blocks off Dupont Circle.
I stayed here in January of 2002, and was disappointed. We had a 2 bed "suite", but it was so small that if I was working at the desk my travel partner couldn't get past the desk chair to get from the door to the bed. The kitchenette was tiny, and the appliances were old and terrible. It wasn't very clean either.
