The Dupont Circle


Set in the heart of Washington D.C.’s most vivacious neighborhood, The Dupont Circle exudes style and sophistication onto our nation’s capital in a central location just steps away from revered American national monuments and renowned museums. As a member of The Doyle Collection, a family-owned Irish luxury hotel group with a 60-year heritage, this charming 327-room hotel imbues warm hospitality, luxurious amenities and panoramic city views while striking the perfect balance of maintaining an intimate residential ambiance. Its bustling chic restaurant and bar scene epitomizes Dupont Circle as the ultimate social hub.

The Dupont Circle has recently undergone an incredible renovation to be lovingly restored back to its former glory by its owner, Bernie Gallagher, the Chairman of The Doyle Collection and daughter of PV Doyle. Working alongside internationally acclaimed designers, Martin Brudnizki and Irish designer, Clodagh, the hotel has been reimagined as a glamorous hub without sacrificing comfort while meticulously weaving contemporary style in neutral tones with pops of color and various textures that pay homage to the building’s mid-century beginnings originally built in 1947. Creating a sense of luxurious urban living in our nation’s capital, guests can feel the owner’s personal touches in the interior design in addition to the selected artwork by celebrated Irish sculptor John Behan and legendary American actor, turned photographer, Dennis Hopper, placed throughout its guest rooms. The ultimate respite is the new Dupont Penthouse Level, which offers thirteen Studio Suites with terraces, two Signature Suites with spacious garden terraces, and a spectacular Grand Penthouse Suite with sweeping views of Dupont Circle and the Washington Monument.

Enjoy a savory breakfast and a sumptuous weekend brunch at The Pembroke, a sophisticated dining destination set in the heart of Dupont Circle, celebrating contemporary American fare with global influences. The Pembroke’s stunning design by Martin Brudnizki features plush velvet coral-toned banquettes around glossy marble tables, cream-paneled walls with playful artwork, and boasts panoramic views of the neighborhood, while a seasonal terrace offers al fresco dining from spring to fall. Unwind at The Doyle Bar, whose handsome chic mid-century interiors and leafy terraces provide an ideal spot to meet and reconnect. A popular destination amongst locals for a libation, the bar is serving its show-stopping cocktails (such as a barrel-aged Manhattan or the Doyle G&T with house-made tonic water) and an impressive selection of Irish whiskeys. Savor delicious bites from duck confit steam buns, tuna tostadas, and the seared scallops with sunchoke purée.

Begin the day with a coffee roasted by Lavazza at Doyle & Co. Coffee Bar before heading out to explore Washington D.C.’s highlights such as the National Mall, the Lincoln Memorial, Washington Monument, the Hillwood Museum and Gardens in Cleveland Park or biking along the Potomac River to name a few. Whether it is your first visit to Washington D.C. or revisiting its sought-after sites, the hotel’s well-connected Concierge can help curate the perfect itinerary filled with special experiences and behind-the-scenes access to securing top tables in the city’s burgeoning dining scene for its guests. Its neighbors include several embassies housed in 19th century mansions (former homes of D.C.’s Gilded Age elite), America’s first modern art museum (the Phillips Collection), and independent shops and cafes like the legendary Kramerbooks, a working bookshop with busy cafe, Tiny Jewel Box with its vintage baubles, and Eighteenth Street Lounge with its famous reggae nights and live music. On Sunday mornings, join locals at the nearby farmer's market to stock up on the best of fresh produce from neighboring Virginia and Maryland. A destination unto its own, Dupont Circle is ultimate urban hideaway in the heart of our nation's capital.
