We loved Dupont Circle Hotel. From front desk to room service, I'm going to miss being here. Thank you Melaybi for having our room beautiful and ready when we got back from our day excursions. We will be coming back soon. Thank you again!

Hire a bike from the little racks all around town and just cycle to the next place then hop off, sight see, then grab another bike. IT was freezing in the middle of winter but the best way to see everything

A beautiful neighborhood with lots if restaurants and bars. It was so alive with local life. A beautiful area to walk around and soak up local life. Lots of young people enjoying the night life.

Not sure about apartment but check the ones on 16 street and near by New Hampshire Ave. because some of them may include parking or have spaces available.
