My mother was traveling on a 11 day long business trip, and when she arrived to DC on Saturday morning the team at the Rouge made the entire experience pleasant. Jennifer at the front desk got her a room hours before check in, and made her feel very welcome and cared for. Thomas in the valet took the best care... More

This hotel is located close to many touristic attractions, 15 min walk from White House. Staff is friendly, rooms are elegant, large and comfortable. It has only a bar but there are many restaurants nearby, e.g. nearby Dupont Circle. The only problem I faced was unstable Wifi (at least, at 5th floor) so I came ofter to the reception area... More

We stayed for five nights over spring break of 2015. This was our first time in DC. We loved the Rouge! Spacious room: big enough for two adults and three kids, had a king size bed and bunk beds, our kids loved it. Awesome location: we loved the neighborhood; we were able to walk to Whole Foods for groceries, many... More

We stay at Rouge whenever we're in DC. The staff is incredibly welcoming and capable, the hotel is comfortable and fun, and the location is walkable to 14th Street restaurants, Dupont Circle and downtown offices. A great place for a great stay without the great big bill!

This hotel is very centrally located at McPhearson Square. Staff was excellent. Great value on MLK weekend. The Decor inside and out is a bit dated with Roman Statues at the front and Bright red furnishings. To find food go toward Farragut or DuPont Circle.

I was at Rouge for a weekend visit to D.C. My executive king room was spacious, well appointed with a good location overlooking 16th Street. My only disappointment was a very small bathroom. The staff was typical Kimpton - friendly, efficient with a real "can-do" attitude. Each Kimpton hotel has its own unique style or vibe and this one with... More

First stay at this Kimpton hotel and when I arrived - after a long day of meetings and then delayed flights - they upgraded me to a sweet suite. The staff were very nice and the breakfast the next day was a nice spread - but not overwhelming.

When I first got to the Rouge, I was served immediately to get my car into the garage and get into my room. The staff were all super-friendly and helpful. It was obvious they really cared about making my stay pleasant and easy. I will definitely stay at the Rouge again!
