Parking - WEEKDAYS: 9 AM Monday to 6:30 PM Friday
Dupont Circle is located in the heart of Washington, DC and parking is at a premium, especially during the week when most of the parking spaces in our neighborhood are reserved for cars with diplomatic license plates. From Monday morning to Friday evening, we will park your car for an additional charge, subject to the following restrictions:
- We are not able to offer in-and-out parking. We will park your car when you arrive and bring it to you when you leave.
- We cannot accommodate oversized vehicles.
- We cannot accommodate vehicles with standard transmission.
Because of the limitations of our parking accommodations, parking reservations MUST be made in advance. If you will need parking, please call us to discuss the parking situation in greater detail.
Parking - WEEKENDS: 6:30 PM Friday - 9 AM Monday
Parking is much easier in our neighborhood on the weekends. Both diplomatic and neighborhood parking spaces become available for general use on Friday evening after 6:30 PM until about 9 AM on Monday morning. If you are coming to DC over the weekend, you can park your own car and use it whenever you like. We'll show you the spaces that are available and tell you if and when you have to move your car. If you prefer to turn the car over to us and forget about it for the weekend, we'll park it for you for an additional charge.
We are not able to accommodate young children.
We are not able to accommodate pets.
Occupancy of the Guest Rooms is limited to registered guests.

Travel with a Friend – or 2!
Traveling with a friend? We have two rooms that are perfect for 2 or 3 friends to share. Each room has two queen-size beds, and of course, a private bathroom. Book Room 102 – Cabbage Rose Afshar or Room 103 – Plum Meshad for 2 or 3 guests for 5 or more nights and we’ll throw in a fun evening of entertainment at ArtJamz, our favorite neighborhood painting party location. Have a glass of wine – very helpful for creativity – while you paint like Pollack, or Monet, or (let’s face it) an unskilled amateur. It’s so much fun you may want to paint an entire portfolio.
(Please note that you may book Rooms 102 and 103 for double occupancy online. If you want to book these rooms for 3 guests, please give us a call or email us with your request. Maximum occupancy in these rooms is 3 guests. Please note that there is an additional charge for the 3rd guest. 5 night stay required.)
