This was a last-minute good deal trip, and I don't think I could have done better! This place definitely (and thankfully) lacks the stuffiness of many DC hotels. Funky decor (Austin Powers would be pleased, as was I). I booked on a pre-pay discount web site, but definitely didn't come away feeling like I was treated like trash (as I...

Lovely hotel (converted apartment building) steps from Dupont Circle. Funky Decor. We had a very large Double Queen Deluxe room with a sitting area. Only complaint is that bathroom was small and not well-ventilated. We were traveling with our dog and needed an early arrival. They were very accommodating. ALso, I left a shoe at the hotel and it was...

Spent 2 days at the Rouge and I was not a huge fan. I found the decor (RED), to be to much. That aside, the hotel seemed dated and a little dirty. The room was spacious, and not too bad. The elevators were small and not as clean as they should have been. For the price I was unsatisfied. Will...

My husband and I love staying at Kimpton properties. As InTouch members, you can't beat the perks. Plus, they have such a fun vibe and chicly decorated rooms. Rouge was centrally located, about five blocks from the White House. The hotel felt a little dated in the lobby. Our room, an executive king suite, was quite large. However, with all...

Dear purplejennybean. Thank you very much for commenting on your recent visit to the Rouge.

It was my fist stay at the Hotel Rouge. I really enjoyed my room, very specious for a Quenn bed. Great modern decor and very comfortable beding. I was just a little surprised of the parking price. $50 including tax. Valet only, no self parking. You have to leave your key at the front desk. When I checked out, I...

Dear YannphillyR. I am glad your first experience with us was good, but we prefer it to be GREAT! I am sorry that the valet parking service was delayed and you are right, with DC parking prices as they are, cars should have their own beds!

We recently stayed at the Rouge Hotel for a few days during a trip to DC and really enjoyed it. If you're looking for something different than the usual Hilton or Marriott experience, this is a great choice. The decor is fun and the service was great and I'd definitely recommend it to anyone. For the price it was pretty...

I don’t always actively look to stay at a Kimpton property, but I am thinking I probably should since there service expectations are step above other chains. Full kudos to the staff for being welcoming and engaged. There was also a gentleman on the last day that went above and beyond and hailed us a cab from the busier cross...

Recently stayed at the Rouge Hotel on 18th St in Wash DC. It's a bit tucked away but in a great location. I was upgraded to a suite which had a lovely dining nook and a well-appointed little kitchen.
