Stayed here last week and it was our first Kimpton hotel. The room was huge, staff were so attentive and we enjoyed everything about it. It was a little noisy at night due to the road outside but overall it was great value for money. The hotel is within easy walking distance of all the main attractions. The bartender (Charisma)...

I love boutique hotels in big cities - Kimpton is the always the BEST. The small Rouge Hotel really fit the bill for our few days seeing the sights. Right up the road from the White House, walking distance to major sites and easy access to the Metro. Loved having the Whole Foods around the corner also. Staff at The...

We have stayed here before and I'm so glad we chose to come back for our 15th wedding anniversary. Check in was smooth, very cheerful staff and our room was ready and waiting at 11am - we even received an upgrade which was fabulous. We love the wine hour at 5pm, and the bar has some nice cheese plates on...

Booked this getaway through Jetsetter for $95 a night and have to say we were pleasantly surprised with our room. Thought it would be facing a wall or courtyard but it wasn't. We could say nothing wrong with the room, service or location. We had a great time. Well worth it.

While a great fan of Kimpton properties, this one is good but not great. This one and Helix a few blocks away don't quite meet the Kimpton 4* standard. (See previous review) Rooms are a bit worn. That's ok. That said the 2 queen room was larger than most I've stayed in in DC. Especially disappointed at the lack of...

We booke a family room for a night. Room was good size and quite clean. The location is very convenient, walking distance to White House, downtown, GW University and other attractions. parking was extra and quite expensive. Also, the refrigerator was full of food supplies but we later found it was not free; in fact very expensive. Hard to keep...

My family and I (Boston terriers included) stayed here over the 4th of July week. Each member of the staff we encountered was so helpful and friendly.

The room was overly large for the SMALL bathroom. You can tell the hotel was renovated by the lack of finishing touches ... New bedding, half painted doors, popcorn ceiling, red walls and terrible lighting. They try to over compensate with gaudy fixtures and did not fine polish the rest of the room.
