Although our room was upgraded to a suite it wasn't better. The king bed was very comfortable but my son had to sleep on the fold out couch. Not comfortable, and bathroom was hard to get to with bed out.
The staff was wonderful and very accommodating. Overall our stay was wonderful. I would recommend this to everyone.
"Great Location. Beautiful hotel. Service lacking."
PROS:This is my second visit here in a month.This hotel was recently remodeled and its beautiful. It could not be in a better spot for Dupont Circle visitors. Great pool on the roof and bar/coffee shop is a great convenience.
CONS: There is a sense of chaos and confusion going on with the staff at the front desk. The check in process seemed overwhelming to the staff. But that chaos moved over to the bar a bit and even the coffee shop area. The worst thing service issue is they open up the pool for lots of people in the evening including non hotel guests and its a party nightmare. It has a bar up there. So obnoxious not relaxing and honestly should not be that way. The hotel guests should be priority for this pool. I walked up at about 6 and it was insane. I went back up in the early morning and it was much more enjoyable. People will appreciate a much more chill and exclusive vibe. It was borderline trashy. Also the music is loud and crappy at the pool.
However, I did not like the glass door bathrooms - makes it difficult when staying with a family member.
The rooms are also a bit too small and no chest of drawers and of all things, no coffee machine!!
My husband and I had a perfect Friday date night stay at the Topaz Hotel. I arrived and was warmly greeted by the front desk staff and offered red or white wine. I appreciated that after a long day at the office. I was quickly checked in and went up to the 10th floor and was surprised with how big the room was. The room was clean and had a nice seating area to relax and enjoy my wine. The bed was very comfortable and overall the whole room was clean and well-appointed. I really liked all the natural light that came into the room. Topaz hotel is within walking distance of many restaurants and shopping. It's also a great starting point for a long run to Georgetown and Rock Creek Parkway.
Mid-rises and mansions grace the leafy streets of Dupont Circle, where independent cafes and shops thrive. With a number of gay bars and businesses, this area is DC’s main gay neighborhood. Foreign flags fly high on Embassy Row, the stretch of Massachusetts Avenue from the Circle to the National Zoo and National Cathedral. At night, locals head north to Adams Morgan for drinks and live music.
