“Kimpton has another unique hotel”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

This lives up to the quirky fun ambiance of a Kimpton hotel. Not the most elegant but very boutique feel. Staff is quite friendly and helpful. Room was good size and in good working order. Love being a Kimpton member and getting the mini bar pass. Makes you feel part of a club. Location is great for getting to much of DC although not very near a Metro stop. Lots of restaurants near by.

Lovely hotel! Very accomodating and service oriented. Nice extras such as water with oranges and water with cucumbers in the lobby at all times. Afternoon cocktails and coffee in the am. The rooms were clean, bright and comfortable. Conveniently located.

This place was wonderful! My fiance and I booked 3 rooms at the Rouge for ourselves and our guests through priceline, and we were not disappointed. We loved the decor. We especially loved the bar and the bar tender who gave us free drinks to celebrate our wedding. There are some nice cozy places to hang out to enjoy food/drinks. The hotel is also within walking distance of other great places to eat, and all the touristy sites of D.C. We would definately stay at the Rouge again!

I stayed again at the Rouge, a conveniently located boutique hotel, for a business trip and again found them very accommodating with comfortable beds and rooms and nice extras such as coffee/tea starting at 5 PM and afternoon cocktails at 5 PM.

Room Tip: I was overlooking the front on the 6th floor and it was still quiet on the street! Friends on the s...

We stayed for 3 days Feb 18-20th in an executive suite and it was really great. The service at the hotel is very good, the hotel is very fresh, clean, and comfortable. We really enjoyed the decor in our room, everything was really comfortable and nice quality. The room was large, furnishings modern, dressing area and bathroom were really nice and good amenities.

Valet is typical DC valet but it was convenient and made going to/from the hotel a breeze and well worth the $$. The hotel is out of the way of most sites and not really near metro stations but we had a car so it wasn't an issue. Also the walk to the White House was very easy as we are walkers. We did eat breakfast and it was good, the morning coffee was a really good value, and they brought me my NY Times each morning which was perfect.

Only slight negative is I called ahead to have fruit/wine in the room and a goldfish (part of Klimpton services) on arrival but I had to remind the front desk and they it was brought later that night. We were excited about the goldfish but unfortunately it was distressed and died which did upset us quite a bit. So next time we will be sure to bring our dogs and skip the goldfish!

The two of us were in town for a wedding and were recommended by the wedding party to stay at the Rouge. Very impressed with the check-in process and valet services. Our room was clean and well prepared. Every request we had of the staff was promptly fulfilled. The White House and surrounding sites are within a 20 minute walk. A unique hotel that we would recommend to see for yourslef!

What can I say, I love this hotel like I have every other Kimpton hotel Ive stayed in.

I came here to have a get away and to do a little business as well and I never wanted to leave. The hotel was under renovations while we were there, but it didnt bother us a bit. They made sure to be as accommodating as possible and we heard no construction noise.

The decor in the room was beautiful. Large dark red drapes, red headboard, and sleek black table and desk area was just put together beautifully.

The staff was some of the friendliest people I've ever met. I cant wait to come back!

Thanks Weddingdiva!

I'm so glad you had such a great time while we were touching up our new lobby floor and adding in the ceiling art at the bar. No more renovations coming up and we can't wait to have you back.
