The Dupont Circle is the sole D.C. property of the Doyle Collection, the Dublin-based hotel company. You’ll hear some Irish accents here, for sure, as well as various languages of the Dupont’s international clientele, some of whom have business at nearby embassies. Guest rooms are quite chic, with frosted glass doors separating bathroom from bedroom, wooden blinds on windows, and leather-wrapped headboards on beds. Level Nine is the hotel’s premium floor, offering a private lounge, luxury service and suites (glass balconies! hardwood floors!) at an otherwise moderately priced property. No other hotel sits right on Dupont Circle, which is the name not only for the neighborhood but also for the urban park around which the traffic swirls. The park is a performance space in its own right. So don’t miss the chance to sit outside on the terrace of the Bar Dupont and watch the goings-on
