I am on day 3 of a 4 night stay. From the minute the Valet greeted us at the door until this very moment (eating breakfast in hotel) I have seen the staff bend over backwards to make everyone feel valued and special. All staff have been so helpful and cheerful! The only reason the room gets 4 stars is because the beige carpet is heavily stained. The hotel is aware and said it is on the list to be replaced. They even offered to give us a different room, but we chose to stay. Hotel is for us - a short walk to the White House, Capital building etc (about 1.5 miles). The hotel is between two neighborhoods with a very fun vibe and neat restaurants. One of the neighborhoods appears to be very gay pride friendly. I am totally loving this place!

Our five-night stay this week at the Lyle Hotel in Washington DC was BETTER than perfect! The location in Dupont Circle is absolutely ideal, with many charming restaurants, bars, and boutiques within walking distance, and a short metro ride to the National Mall. The personal attention to each guest by the warm and friendly staff was notable and always welcome. Most impressive was the pristine condition of every aspect of the Lyle. The hotel is in a gorgeous brownstone-type building, and the art throughout is breathtaking. The rooms are totally cozy and comfortable, and the down blankets and comfy mattresses heavenly. Another unexpected delight of the Lyle was the restaurant. We ate there the first night, as we arrived late and didn’t feel like going searching for the “perfect dinner”. The food WAY exceeded our lofty expectations and every bite of each of our dinners was divine. We ate there again the next night just to see if it was really as good as we thought, and the food was once again off the charts, as it was for the next three nights too. The chef is from Switzerland, and his innovative menu and attention to every aspect of his incredible creations is superb! We loved every minute of our magical trip to our nation’s lovely capital, and our decision to stay at the Lyle was our absolute good fortune!
