An unusual venue. No formal restaurant but more than just bar snacks in the lounge. The suites have kitchenettes with cutlery and a small dining area but as far as I could see no heat. The staff at Hotel Rouge are amazing and really go the extra mile, nothing is too much trouble. Front desk manager Harald deserves a special... More

From their website this looked and sounded like a good choice for our 5 nights in DC. We arrived late evening due to long delays in Dulles. There were many young people running around in the lobby area - it looked like there had been a party.The check-in was completed quickly and we headed up to our room. The lift... More

This is one of those places you almost don't want to let other people know about, because you want to keep the secret to yourself. The price was FANTASTIC, the location was great, the room was large/clean. Sometimes hotel room service can be touch and go, but their food was very good. Valet had my car ready when I needed...

A great hotel to see the sights. Easy to get to using the subway, infact that was our main method of transport for the three days we were here. Easy to walk to The White House and other sights. Room was of good size, decor took some getting used to but was quirky and memorable. A great addition was the... More

The reason we booked the Rouge Hotel is because of its location on 16th Street, NW and the fact that it offered spacious 500+ square feet rooms with bunk beds. It is also one of the few properties in DC that can accommodate five people in one room. Our kids loved the bunk beds. They also offer an Xbox 360.... More

This was our second visit to the Rouge. We had visited in 2010 and were very impressed. Our return visit was just as good. The staff are all friendly and helpful. The contintental breakfast is limited but is great for early starts, so you do not waste time trying to find a place for breakfast as there is so much... More

As an eco-concious finance professional traveling to WA DC for the first time, I chose Rouge for three reasons: their top eco-rating, proximity to my work location, and value. I was delighted with my selection. I loved my room. I truly never heard my neighbors. And what a great location. I found that beyond being close to work, I was... More

The Rouge is the most accommodating hotel I have stayed in. The employees are eager to help in any way...all of them! The continental breakfast is great...best granola I have ever had. Wonderful coffee is served in the lobby. On our way out there were pizzas in the lobby late morning...I was too full from breakfast. The rooms are spacious... More

I stay at the rouge often and I have nothing but praise for them. The hotel staff, from the front desk to the cleaning and restaurant crews to the hospitality coordinator, can't do enough for you. The beds could not be more comfortable. Also, the location could not be better right in DuPont. Whether you are traveling for work or... More
