The Dupont Circle Hotel
Travel Blogs from Washington DC
Oh my, what a lovely arty day!! I can't believe I have seen so many originals by some of my favorite artists - it has been a real treat. When I was a teenager in Liverpool I used to spend many a lunchtime in the Walker Art Gallery feasting my eyes on the paintings and sculptures there and it is one thing I have dearly missed living in NZ (not …
We bought a ticket for the hop-on, hop-off trolley bus this morning and did a tour of part of the city to get our bearings and some of the history and local info. Oh my goodness, this is a BEAUTIFUL city and I have fallen in love with it. There are so many places to go here and great places to just sit and enjoy the surroundings. We need to be here …
We got up really early this morning for our long drive to Washington DC and Marie-Claire showed what sterling stuff she is made of by getting up early and giving us breakfast. Hal says that usually she can't put together anything like a coherent sentence at that hour of the morning but apart from looking slightly bleary-eyed she did just fine. It …
Our feet have certainly done the distance today as we set out early to see as much as we could for the short time we are here in the capital. It didn't look that hot outside but as soon as we stepped out off the hotel doors the humidity hit us and it proved to be a scorcher. Since we don't have a kitchen to use, we headed down Conneticut Avenue in …
We've had a great few days in Chicago. Yesterday the weather warmed up so we got to enjoy the sun a bit more. We didn't do a great deal in the city, just used it as a chance to slow down the pace a bit and save some money for New York but it's been nice to walk around the area and enjoy the surbuarbs for a bit.
This morning we took a …

Historical Traveler Reviews The Dupont Circle Hotel Washington DC
Great location and a fine hotel
While Jury's is an Irish chain, this Jury's is better than anything I've seen in Ireland! The location on Dupont Circle is excellent. And the quality of the rooms is top-notch. (Ask for a quiet room in the back if you want to avoid the noise from the Circle.) It's a perfect weekend hotel due to the steep weekend discounts and the local nightlife. I definitely will be back!
Was a great location for us. Convenient to the Metro, nice community. Hotel was extremely helpful, efficient and clean. Would definitely return or recommend Jurys to anyone. Thank you.
We went to a conference in DC and chose Jurys to save money and because of the internet access. I regretted that I didn't just stay at the conference hotel. On the positive side, the service was friendly, the high speed internet access worked and the rooms are clean and tastefully decorated though the bathroom was a little shabby. We received USA Today each weekday morning. On the downside, we had no hot water our first morning. They gave us access to another room so we could shower but the water pressure there was extremely low. Our room was uncomfortably small. I don't usually mind this but the bathroom sink was right next to the bed and there was no place to put the breakfast tray except for the desk on which we had our laptop. The bathroom was exceptionally small with less leg room in front of the toilet than an airline seat. A lot of rooms in this hotel have poor views, though not all. Overall, I felt I could have done better elsewhere.
Protesting in Style
We attended the Anti-war rally in D.C. on Sat., January 18, and stayed in Jury's Hotel on Dupont Circle that night. Excellent rate for a DC hotel; the service was excellent (often with an Irish accent), and the rooms comfortable. The hotel is located right on Dupont Circle, which could be loud, I suppose, during the summer when people are out on the street at all hours. But that cold, winter night, street noise was not a problem! It is perfectly located to enjoy this great part of town.
Its above average
We stayed the first week of October. The hotel is well ubicated for itīs value. Rooms are clean and small but O.K. for a short visit. Do not expect amenities, buy the neighberhood provides them pretty well. Do not make internationl calls or long distance...... as any hotel, extremly expensive. Bring your computer if you need access to internet .......... I will stay again if visiting Washington D. C.
Had a wonderful time at the Jurys Hotel. The room was very nice, the staff was outstanding, The restaurant excellent. This area of Washington DC is has a city park, and book store across the street of the hotel. I'll return.
They over charged me.
I really enjoyed the Hotel, and it's location in Dupont Circle is a very nice part of D.C.
However, the hotel charged me $15 a day, + tax for parking my car. The funny thing is, I didn't have a car while I visted the hotel. They also charged me for removing refeshments from the room refeshment center, I did not. I've called, I've sent letters, to no avail. They have not reversed the charges.
spent the weekend at Jurys Hotel, Washington, D.C. clean rooms, very friendly staff, good service no negatives at all. great resturant also.
An okay hotel. The rooms were nice and clean. The customer
service, however was horrible. We reserved the room online on one of the discount sites. After arriving to the hotel, the receptionist could not find our reservation. I pulled out my confirmation from the webpage, and 45 minutes later, they gave us a room. The receptionist was very snoody, and did not even appoligize for the inconvience. The room had two double beds when we asked for a kind size, and the view was of a dirty alley. I paid 85 dollars a night, which was worth the price. Its NOT worth 125 dollars, which is what they advertise.
Good experience. Hotel itself was fine, service friendly and good, everything clean and well maintained. Check-in and check-out both handled very quickly and efficiently, and with a smile that seemed more genuine than usual. Well worth the price, compared to some of the other options. This is a GREAT area to be hungry in. There are lots of smallish, inexpensive, informal and very good restaurants within a 5 block radius, several in a 1 block radius. Try going up Connecticut Av.
Ashamed to say I didn't try the in-hotel resturants, but the aromas were quite promising. Next time. And there will be a next time.
