Even this hotel’s smallest room (measuring 390 sq. ft.) is more spacious than the largest room at some other D.C. hotels. The biggest suites here encompass more than 700 feet. All of the rooms are suites, with separate full kitchens in 90% of the units and kitchenettes in the remainder. Families especially, but also business travelers, love the chance to spread out, the outdoor pool, the on-site restaurant, and the location near the Foggy Bottom Metro stations, Georgetown, and the White House. Most rooms have walkout balconies. One Washington Circle is situated, as it sounds, right on Washington Circle, and across from the George Washington University Hospital. Double-paned windows help screen some of the siren sounds, but for quietest sleep, ask for a room on the 8th or 9th floor facing L Street or New Hampshire Avenue. George Washington University–affiliated guests may be eligible for discounts.
