Dupont Circle, Washington, D.C.

Guests find themselves centrally positioned in one of D.C.’s most beloved and thriving, pedestrian-friendly neighborhoods, with easy access to nearby highlights ranging from 14th Street NW, Adams Morgan, and Embassy Row to Georgetown and George Washington universities. And if you’re looking to venture even farther, simply hop on the Metro, and get exploring.

A couple-minute stroll takes you to the Dupont Circle Metro station (a red-line stop). Purchase a ticket from a kiosk in the station, or buy a reloadable SmarTrip® Card online in advance (allow at least five days for delivery).

The DC Circulator stops right near us (at 19th and N streets NW), and takes passengers from Dupont Circle to Georgetown (and onto Rosslyn). This affordable and efficient bus system has several other routes, including a Smithsonian – National Gallery of Art loop that circles the National Mall.
