The Dupont Circle hotel, in Washington D.C., has officially reopened following a largescale renovation by world renowned designers Martin Brudnizki and Clodagh. The Dupont Circle hotel is part of The Doyle Collection, a family-owned Irish luxury hotel group with a 60-year heritage.

The renovation design blends contemporary comfort and style with a 1950s aesthetic that pays homage to the building’s mid-century beginnings. It features bold colors and varying textures in the bar and restaurant, holistic touches like live-edge wood and handwoven rugs in the penthouse suite and reimagined lobby. 

In addition to the penthouse suite and redesigned lobby, the renovation also includes updated guestrooms to match the new esthetic, a social terrace, a new restaurant, a coffee shop and a new bar. 

“The modern traveler is more connected, more mobile than ever before - however they are also now more interrupted, anxious and stressed by how unpredictable the world has become,” said Bernie Gallagher, Chairman of The Doyle Collection and daughter of PV Doyle, founder of the eponymous hotel group. “As hoteliers, it is for us to provide customers with that sense of calm and order and that feeling of being looked after, of belonging, of being ‘home from home’.”
