Dupont Circle Hotels

With a history that predates the civil war, Dupont Circle is an important part of Washington DC's historic district. Construction of Dupont Circle began in 1871 and the traffic circle was known as the Pacific Circle. A statue of Samuel Francis Du Pont was added in 1882 and later a fountain was added by the Du Pont family. Today Dupont Circle remains a center for community activities.

More Than Just A Roundabout

Dupont Circle is much more than a simple vehicular traffic circle in the nation's capital. It is an entire neighborhood, home to fabulous restaurants, museums, historical buildings, and a thriving nightlife. Inside the circle itself is a beautiful park with grass, trees, benches and a fountain. The park is on the National Register of Historic Places. This neighborhood serves as a gathering point and residence for many of the city's twentysomething college graduates. The history and culture combine to make this an eclectic neighborhood that has no equal in the city or anywhere else.

Dupont began as Pacific Circle in the original capital city designed by Pierre Charles L'Enfant. Unlike a traditional traffic circle, this has TEN roads leading into and out of it. It was not always so busy, and was mostly undeveloped until after the Civil War. In 1882 Congress renamed the circle and the neighborhood to honor the naval wartime service of Admiral Samuel Francis Du Pont.

Culturally, there is a lot to take in the Dupont Circle neighborhood. The Woodrow Wilson House is here, as well as the National Geographic Museum. Embassy Row, home to many different country's foreign embassies, are also in Dupont. Those aren't your thing? Maybe the Brewmaster's Castle (yes, castle) or the Textile Museum would interest you. One could spend a few days in Dupont and never even leave the neighborhood, such is the amount of things to do and see. There is so much to offer in the way of museums and attractions that I cannot list them all here.

The neighborhood is home to some of the greatest bars, restaurants and nightclubs in the city. There is a wide variety of traditional as well as ethnic restaurants, serving fantastic varieties of food. Dupont offers something for every kind of person in their bars and clubs, from a Moroccan themed restaurant and bar to a traditional style pool hall. On 18th Street, there exists a classy (albeit exclusive) lounge that was once home to former President and Rough Rider Teddy Roosevelt. Where else can you find that kind of experience?
