Stayed here for a few days while on business. Overpriced hotel that attempts to be hip and boutique and does not fit the bill. At all. First of all the service at this place was terrible. Some very rude managers. Bartender was great though. Ridiculous $100 a night charge for incidentals is ludacris. I have spent many nights at luxury... More

We were pretty disappointed with our stay at the Rogue. Check in was good, the room was a great size, but it felt decidedly 'all fur coat and no knickers'. It was like an aged, old motel had had a lick of paint and some funky pieces of furniture/ pictures - yes, but it lacked cohesion with some pieces working... More

Another Kimpton's gem. Hotel Rouge is perfectly inline with the chain style and offer. Great quality with a special touch. Rooms are spacious and very comfortable. Stylish retro decor. Professional and friendly personnel. The bar / breakfast space is rather small and impersonal but this is the only minor spot in an overall very positive stay.
