Located one block from Union Station was a bonus, there we found post office, cafes, some shops, our friends from N Carolina and the big red hop on hop off bus. Our room was very comfortable and spacious, bathroom great, I'm not able to comment on the view because we were only there to sleep and bathe, in fact I... More

We're delighted to read that you took full advantage of our location, Patricia! There's so much to do in Washington that sometimes we worry our rooms might be *too* comfortable, but you were the right kind of traveler for us! On a more serious note: thank you for the great review. We hope to see you again soon. More

Let's face it, Washington isn't known for its hotels, and I wasn't expecting much after booking at The George, but it turned out to be a wonderful surprise - attentive staff, comfortable room and a great fitness center, all at a reasonable price.

A block from Union Station, two blocks from the Capitol, and walking distance from the Mall - what is not to like? Very helpful staff. A choice of newspapers in the lobby for guests every day. We asked for a quiet room and the staff booked it ahead of time for us so city noise was never an issue. Keurig... More

I stayed in The George in connection with a conference and found it a solid hotel. The rooms are comfortable and spacious with the typical Palomar touches. The loyalty program is great and includes free wifi and a $10 minibar credit. The staff were all very friendly and welcoming and the location very convenient to Capitol Hill and Union Station....

Although I do regularly business in Washington this was the first time I stayed in a hotel in this part of town. My room on the 7th floor was very quiet, large and had a 'boutique flair'. Well designed and very clean. However the windows were facing another wing of the hotel and the bathroom was facing office windows that... More

The room was very large with zero view. The hotel bar closes early and the restaurant is really French and not suitable for kids so you definitely will be going out to dine. The homeless facility a couple blocks away adds to the aura, let's say. It's an urban city folks! The location is outstanding. If you get it at... More

Once again, the trip was made seamless with a stay at the George. I was there again for oral arguments at the Supreme Court for marriage equality. The location is perfect. One can easily walk to Union Station, to the Capitol and to surrounding points of interest. The street is relatively quiet, given its central location. The Kimpton Hotels always... More

A hop, skip, and a jump from Union Station and the Capitol area. Kimptons aren't my preferred chain, but this one wasn't bad. Small rooms, but typical size for midrange DC hotels, it seems. One restaurant suggestion around the corner from the hotel is Art and Soul. Love that place. The hotel's restaurant was always crowded, but we didn't try... More

This is our first Kimpton hotel stay. The price was right, and we've been delighted with the experience. It's a five minute walk to Union Station where you can pick up the Amtrak or the red Metro line. It's about a twenty minute walk to the Mall where you can visit the Capitol and the various Smithsonian Museums. The room... More
