What a great surprise. The staff are exceptionally good, very friendly and helpful. Our room had a king size bed and the room was huge, plenty of room for suitcases. We also had two fluffy bathrobes, one being a tiger print and the other a leopard print. The room had a lot of red in it but it wasn't over... More

Excellent customer service from start to finish and the feel of an intimate and upscale downtown DC apartment building. One night's stay and you'll feel like you're a "resident." Extremely convenient to everything in DuPont Circle and White House area.

Hotel is clean if a little shabby, staff are pretty helpful, a bit of a walk from the center of things, but the neighborhood itself is safe and there are terrific restaurant options in walking distance. Not terribly close to a metro station, so we took a lot of taxis. Our room was very large for a big city hotel.... More

I am a bit of a Kimpton junkie ... where ever I travel, if there is a kimpton available (at a price point I can justify) that is where you will find me. I've now stayed at three different Kimpton properties in DC and Rouge not only met all expectations but greatly exceeded them. All the regular perks of being... More

This is a lovely, spotlessly clean hotel. Huge rooms and so comfortable. Within walking distance to all the sites including the Whitehouse. Free wine everyday from 5-6pm in the lobby including free tea and coffee each morning

Kimpton has joined my shortlist of hotel chains thanks to the Rouge. The location of the Rouge is the only negative and its not major thanks to Uber (Download the App) you can get anywhere in DC fast and easy (Way cheaper and easier than taxis) as the Metro stop at DuPont Station is a relatively longer walk *Half Mile)....

Rouge provided a nice base for my business travels in DC. The location is very convenient to transportation and restaurants. The sleeping rooms were nice. The facilities, including restaurants and fitness center, were basic but useful. The staff was helpful, though they didn't acknowledge the rate I had booked (with continental breakfast) and so that caused a bit of confusion... More

Rouge is a located in a somewhat out of the way part of DC. However, it is still central enough that its location is a real benefit. Local restaurants tend to be less pricey with more of e neighborhood feel. Also, within two blocks is a Whole Foods that opens up any possibilities for the traveler who is budget conscious.... More

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
