Recommended 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.
