A Class-Act Venue + Location


Save 10% with our Howard University rate

When it comes to location, Kimpton Carlyle Hotel Dupont Circle excels in all departments. Guests return time and again for our prime downtown address, as well as our recently refreshed Art Deco decor, elevated amenities (from a hosted wine hour to complimentary PUBLIC bikes), and our dynamic food and drink scene.

Yet one of our best assets? Convenient proximity to esteemed academic hubs like Howard University, which is located only 1.2 miles from our Dupont hotel. Established in 1867, Howard is a federally chartered, private, doctoral university, classified as a high research-activity institution. Boasting enrollment of more than 10,000 students, its undergraduate, graduate, professional, and joint degree programs span 120+ areas of study within 13 schools and colleges.

Students, alumni, families, faculty, and visitors love using our welcoming downtown venue as a home base from which to explore Howard’s enticing community events and urban campus.

We also happily offer discounted room rates at 10% off our best flexible rate (based on availability).
