Good hotel in good location for seeing the sights. We actually walked from train station - not sure that was best idea, but was fine. Arrived at Rouge in time for 'wine hour' - guest can enjoy a complimentary glass or 2 of wine and lovely sweet potato bites - rude not to! Reception staff very helpful and friendly. Room...

Lots of red of course and lots of cool, trendy character here. My room was very large for DC with eclectic touches but most importantly a clean, comfortable bed and bathroom. The free happy hour was great as usual with Kimpton. I had the continental breakfast included in my rate for $1 and for a buck, it was worth it...

I've stayed at 10 or 11 different Kimptons, and got used to their vibe, but more importantly their quality. The Muse in NYC this weekend couldn't have been more on point. This wasn't. From no valet parking attendant, to really poor check in (lethargic, slow, promised they'd give a minibar key and never did, inattentive - same at checkout, unfortunately)....

Hi Mike, Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. You definitely bring up some cause for concern, and I will be sure to address this with my team. A poor service experience will leave a bad taste in anyone's mouth. While the Rouge remains, and always will be, a legacy hotel. We understand the need to stay...

You are greeted with a "swanky" sexy lobby of red and black and cowhide. The doors to the hotel are heavily unique with studs and artisan door handles. I believe I was upgrade to a suite, perhaps since I'm a Karma member? Quite large and comfortable with huge working desk, full size sofa and plenty of floor space to utilize...

Second year in a row we brought a group of students to Washington DC and stayed in the Kimpton Rouge Hotel. Fantastic experience at the hotel and in DC. The staff at Rouge go above and beyond. I recommend this hotel for anyone visiting DC. It is conveniently located near Dupont Circle and you can walk to many great sites...

I was surprised how big the room was for being a hotel in the city. I usually stay at one of the Kimpton's near Dupont Circle and their rooms are smaller. The hotel is very quiet. I didn't hear any street noise and I couldn't hear my hotel neighbors. The bed was super comfortable and the front desk staff and...

We were in D.C. for several days, mixing a work obligation with some time off. We stay at a lot of Kimpton Hotels when we travel. The Rouge Hotel seemed less grand in the public spaces than the typical Kimpton. As the name would suggest, the design incorporates a lot of red and it gives the hotel a sexy chic...

I love Kimpton hospitality - super dog friendly, spacious rooms, complementary wine at 5, comfy robes, and even a yoga mat. You also get $10 off a mini bar treat if you're a member. They have limited room service and the small lobby bar doesn't open until 5. Luckily there are many bars and restaurants within walking distance. Parking is...

location and hotel great -- as Kimpton's always are. But the best part of this hotel is the staff. VERY friendly and efficient. WAs there for both a biz and personal and the staff was so accommodating. Room very spacious for a DC property.

Room was large but a bit worn. Overloaded extension cords and iffy seeming outlets. Food packaging garbage was in my daughter's bed when she first got in it (i.e., it was supposed to be clean). $12 delivery fee to have food brought to room. Restaurant unexpectedly entirely closed on a Friday night. Pet-friendly is nice in theory but one day...

Yikes! I have to admit I was a bit taken back after reading this review. I can assure that is not how we the way we intend represent ourselves, or the Kimpton Brand. The incidents that you mentioned should have never occurred, and I will ensure that we take every possible measure to prevent it from happening again. Please, feel...
