OLD – Hotels Near Dupont Circle Metro

1484271751_08_thumbs_upRecommended Hotel: Embassy Row Hotel
Why: Rooftop Pool, Newly Remodeled, Romantic

DuPont Circle has 6 hotels that are just a short walk to the Red line Metro. DuPont Circle is a prime location if you are planning a romantic getaway to D.C. The neighborhood is vibrant and surrounded by brownstones and embassies. There are a handful of boutique hotels that are a nice alternative to the brand name options you will see all over D.C. Out of the boutique options we recommend Embassy Row and or the DuPont Circle Hotel. At either hotel rates however between $235 and $165, with the weekend rates usually being more affordable. Embassy Row stands out because it was updated in 2015 and also has a rooftop pool. DuPont Circle may spark romance with some rooms offering frosted glass showers that offer little privacy. If you want to stay in DuPont, but save on a hotel we suggest taking a look at the Baron Hotel. There rates average below $125, but don’t expect to impress a loved one at this budget minded option. Take a look at Embassy Row first as a starter, but don’t’ count out the other boutique options in DuPont Circle.

nieghborhood_vibe_48Neighborhood Vibe: Dupont Circle is a trendy, urban area in the heart of DC. Close to downtown and to the major tourist destinations, this neighborhood is a mix of many things—high rise buildings and massive row homes, young professionals and seasoned diplomats, local boutiques and national chains. A bustling area full of embassies and wealthy residents, this area is comfortable and safe, though you may find some of the city’s homeless taking up residence inside the park at the center for Dupont Circle.

things_to_do_48Things to Do: Museum lovers will find some unique options in Dupont, such as the Phillips Collection, an art museum offering rotating exhibitions; the Heurich House Museum, the home of one of DC’s original brewmasters; and the Mansion at O Street, which offers the opportunity to tour through its object-filled rooms—over 100 with lots of secret doors. Dupont is also the home of Embassy Row, a concentration of embassies and diplomatic residences. Walk down Massachusetts Ave and admire their architecture, testing yourself on the flags of the world. Or, visit in May when many of the European Union countries open their buildings to the public. Kramerbooks is a local indie bookstore with an adjoining café that is a favorite of locals. Dupont Circle is also traditionally the center of LGBTQ life in the city, so look to find the Pride Parade winding through in June.

what_to_east_48What to Eat: Dupont Circle is a busy neighborhood on weekends as the area hosts a variety of nightlife, from the DC Improv to dive bars (try the Big Hunt) to dance clubs (Eighteenth Street Lounge is a local favorite). This area is a popular party destination for college students and young professionals and also for bachelor parties, as one of the city’s gentleman’s clubs is located here. Visitors will also find a wide variety of restaurant options in Dupont Circle. For a casual bite, visit Shake Shack for burgers or Sweetgreen for healthier options. Pizza Paradiso offers award-winning pizzas and a wide selection of craft beers (the Obamas have been known to stop in) or enjoy seafood classics at Hank’s Oyster Bar.
