"Not the best bnut room was comfortable"
The hotel was expensive, almost $400 per night, and old. It's undergone some renovation, but not completely. The room was fine, clean and comfortable and the staff polite and professional. The neighborhood was fine.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Child friendly boutique hotel in DuPont Circle"
We enjoyed our stay. The rooms were comfortable and we had no complaints. The location is great in close proximity to a variety of things. You can walk to the Smithsonian and zoo but it's a long walk. Great restaurant next store and across the street. Not a full service hotel and you only got breakfast if you booked through the hotel , we did not and […] booked through expedia. Wifi was free only if you signed up for the loyalty program. We missed not having a gym but took advantage of the yoga mats. The free wine cocktail hour was a nice perk. The front desk was helpful and had treats for the baby. It is dog friendly . Parking is valet only but there is free street parking on Sunday Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Pleasing but small hotel. Renovating. Not a fan of the bowl sinks. Splashes all over. Elevator needs work. Door wouldn't hold open and wheelchair stuck several times. Breakfast disappointing. Not bad but not much.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great, quirky hotel in an excellent location"
The location of the hotel was fantastic. It was on a side street that isn't terribly busy, but right in the thick of the action. It's only a short walk over to all the attractions around DuPont Circle. I couldn't imagine a better neighborhood to stay in as a young couple interested in going out and enjoying the city. The room was spacious and homey--more […] than once I referred to it as my apartment on accident. We had a little problem with the shower faucet coming loose, but a maintenance man was there in 15 minutes to resolve the issue. Front desk staff was always friendly and the complimentary wine hour was a nice touch. All in all, an excellent value that I'll gladly do again if I find myself returning to DC.

"Trendy hotel downtown DC"
This hotel is pet friendly, however darks were barking at all hours of the night so my family didn't sleep well. In addition, the hotel was out of hot water by 8pm so our showers were not long ones, obviously. It was clean and the decor was trendy but it is also hard to find. Would not stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A sad stay."
We were greeted when we got in around 12:30am or so, and it was a pleasant welcome. Everything was so scripted and unethused. The hotel and rooms were so outdated even though it was trendy like decor...it was like someone tried to make a motel really nice. Bathroom was teeny and there was no hot water while I showered the first night. Overall experience […] was absolutely disappointing. We decided to change hotels midstay and Amanda (different front desk personnel) was actually very accomodating so this review does not reflect this particular employee.

"Good location, decent value, mediocre appearance"
Hotel is in a great location central to monuments, DuPont circle, bars, and nightlife. Parking is expensive, but that's pretty typical for anywhere in DC. I was excited about staying at a boutique hotel, but wasn't really impressed by this one. I would describe it as "lipstick on a pig". The furnishings and decor were creative and tasteful, but the […] bones of the building (construction, paint, elevators, plumbing) were in poorer condition than I would have expected. It looked like they thought some wallpaper and a whole lot of white paint would mask the underlying construction flaws, but it really didn't. The room itself had plenty of space, which was nice. The bathroom was a bit small, but there was an adjacent dressing area that helped compensate for it (though that area had terrible lighting for doing hair/makeup.) Bottom line: If you're just looking for a decent place to sleep in a central location, this is a great choice. If you're picky about the appearance of your hotel/rooms and like expansive lobbies with large elevator banks, then you may want to stay elsewhere. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Don't stay in room 211!"
I traveled with my dog and was placed in room 211. The air conditioning vent or some sort of fan system outside the room kept me up all night long. I didn't notice it until I was in bed with the lights out and it was too late to switch rooms. It's a shame because the hotel is lovely and the staff was generally friendly. But when, as I was checking out, […] I complained about the noise in my room, I was told a manager would contact me. It has been almost one week and I haven't heard from anyone.

"Great Stay! Great Location!"
This cute hotel is on a quiet neighborhood side street. Perfect location to easily get to Metro, restaurants and highlights. Staff was excellent! Older building but rooms were nice and large for DC. We will definitely stay here again. Side note: we had our kids with us and we happened to arrive to the hotel during the wine social hour. They greeted […] us with a glass of wine and They sent our kids to pick the soda of their choice! bartender made them feel extra special by making them a Shirley temple. They loved it! When we got to the room there was plenty of space for all of us with a little side alcove type bed/sofa that they set their electronics up in and their were happy in their little hideout.

I stopped in on an overnight business trip. It was great having a a little bar/restaurant right on site and I was pleased at the generous size and layout of the room.

The hotel is in a fantastic location. Lots of stuff to do. Nicely decorated and comfortable, clean room. Only downside to our stay was loud private party in the bar (but we were in high floor so it didn't affect quietness in our room) and someone pulled the fire alarm at 1am. The hotel staff was very kind and credited us the parking due to the wake […] up though! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Perfect hotel without breaking the bank!! Neighborhood is lively and close to sites and night life. The staff is exceptional.

"Great Hotel with Great Staff"
The Topaz Hotel is a great choice if you're looking to explore D.C. It's located near Dupont Circle which hosts a bunch of shops, restaurants, and bars. It's also close to the Metro which allows you to get around town quickly and at a low cost. The staff was very helpful in recommending places to eat and the best routes to get to our destinations. Be […] sure to stop by the bar in the evening for the FREE wine hour. It's a nice added touch to an already great hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Decent "Boutique" hotel but need some improvements"
Last minute decision to stay at Topaz. I was pleased with Monaco in Baltimore (same Kimpton hotel chain) and I was pretty sure it will be at least decent. And that's exactly what I got. Just decent. The location: Good. Near lots of activities. National mall only short drive away. There are plenty of street parking and no need to use expensive valet […] service ($43). The room: OK. Modern / posh decor. Bath tub was clogged. There was only 1 bath robe. The facility: need some update. Dirty old elevators with one out of order. The Staff: Needs huge improvements. Front desk lady gave me a weird vibe that she was not listening to me at all, mainly due to lack of "confirmation" signal like "Yes" "I'm sorry to hear that" etc. I told her about clogged bath tab and she didn't even say that she is sorry. She just said "I will send a repair man". Also there were no doormen nor bellhops. Employees were gathering around and chit-chatting when we arrived and didn't recognize us. The Verdict: Just OK. It's cheap. You get what you paid for. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Funky little hotel not too far from the Mall."
I never stayed at the hotel before, but was in town with my girlfriend for 4 nights. The hotel was not walking distance to the National Mall, but was in a nice little neighborhood type place which gave it a pseudo-boutique feel to the place. It was a 2 mile cab ride to the Smithsonian. It was a short walking distance to plenty of restaurants and bars […] to satisfy our day and night cravings. My girlfriend repeatedly stated that the hotel would be a repeat hotel for her and we were able to wrangle a good price for our stay (although the rate for daily valet parking was pretty expensive).

"A solid place"
Great location, incredibly courteous and attentive staff. Room could use a bit of an upgrade. A/C couldn't keep up so the room was pretty warm and stuffy all day and all night (granted the high temperature that day was in the upper 90s). Overall a pretty solid choice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Gorgeous Hotel, Great Location"
The Topaz Hotel in DC impressed me like no other hotel has for a quick weekend getaway. Extremely friendly staff! But what is most amazing is the room! We stayed on the 10th floor in a Deluxe King room and it was superb. It was an incredible view with windows stretching the whole length of the room. We had a gorgeous view of the ornate dome of St. Matthews […] Cathedral. The room also had a living room area with sofa, coffee table,etc. Modern beautiful decor of white and purple/blue. There was also a small den tucked away in a corner alcove with a desk for my boyfriend to get on his business calls. And for me, there was a separate room with a vanity table, cushion seat, vanity mirror, and full length mirror for me to do my makeup and get ready. And the bathroom had modern sink and the tub had a curved curtain to give you more elbow room. Free-WiFi when you sign up for their free loyalty program. My only complaint is that the flat screen TV in the room was not in HD. Parking in the area might be tricky. We lucked out and found street parking in front of the hotel ... $2 for every 2 hours until 6:30pm M-F. There are three garages nearby too but check the policies of the garages before you park! Great location. Restaurants/bars all in walking distance. The hotel's lounge downstairs is extremely classy with free wine happy hour every night from 5-7 for guests and a live jazz band that plays every Friday night. I loved it. We didn't want to leave.

In DC for conference. Moved to Topaz for portion of trip I was paying for. The room was half the price but with much friendlier staff. Loved the free cocktail hour.

"Central to Dupont Circle."
We've stayed at a number of Kimpton's primarily because we travel with our two West Highland White Terriers. Our experience has been very positive however, the Topaz was did not hit the mark.

"Room paid for was not available"
The Topaz is a perfectly fine hotel in terms of cleanliness, comfort, and location. There were just a few things that marred our stay, and the first was when we arrived on Friday night to be told there was no room available at the Topaz, but that we would be accommodated at the hotel next door. That hotel room was in an antique hotel, which was nice […] and interesting, but the room was a 4th-floor walkup! They also failed to communicate that we were expected to return to the Topaz on the second night, which resulted in some last-minute shuffling of our things instead of heading out to see the sights. It wasn't a very big deal, but I found it to be organizationally poor. No one offered any explanation of why this had happened. Once we were staying at the Topaz, things went fine, except that someone in an adjacent room was smoking, and it could be smelled in our room. But that's not really the hotel's fault.

The staffs are really friendly and they offer free coffee in the morning and free wine in the afternoon.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A very pleasant stay"
The hotel is nice and clean, with many updates. The staff there was helpful and friendly. The hotel is very close to DuPont Circle, which is surrounded by great restaurants and lovely shops, and it is also very close to the Metro station. I think that this hotel has some unique features that worth mention. First, every room has a safe and convenient […] electric kettle for boiling hot water! Since I like to relax with a book and a cup of hot tea before going to bed, the kettle really helps. (Most other hotels usually provide coffee pot, which always leaves a trace coffee smell when it is used to boil water!) Another thing I like is the yoga mat in the room. -- I get to stretch and relax right in the hotel room! So very nice! Yes, I would stay there again! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Drove up for a one-night stay so wasn't looking for anything too great. The location is really good. Close to DuPont Circle, and restaurants like Tabard Inn and Iron Gate.
