I was in Washington DC for a conference earlier this week. Rouge was on the sponsored hotel list of the convention. The walk from the hotel to the convention center was about 20 minutes. It was about an equal distance to the Mall and pretty close to the White House. The hotel room was, I think, spacious for a big... More

We booked the Rouge Suite for my sister's bachelorette party over the weekend because we wanted a nice room for the girls to get ready together in and then for a couple of us to sleep in after dancing in DC. My sister is getting married at another Kimpton hotel, so I wanted to keep it in the Kimpton family.... More

I stayed here with a group of girls for a weekend getaway. I was a little aprehensive at first of putting 12 girls in only 3 rooms, but I must say the rooms were quite large and not at all cramped. The rooms were very modern, and for the most part, clean. One room had ants everywhere but that group... More

I stayed in the Rouge hotel for a conference in January. Overall I was happy with the service and location. In terms of location, I liked that I could walk to the convention center in one direction and easily hit up the shops and restaurants of Dupont and 14th street in the other direction. Service was good, they were able... More

This was one of the coolest hotels I have ever stayed at! It is located very close to DC attractions and was very reasonably priced for the area. The entire hotel is decorated in red and has very cool art on the walls. The rooms were very big, clean, and again, well decorated. It had everything you need during a... More

Stepping into the Kimpton Rouge is like walking back into the 1950's when red walls and chrome furniture were very kitch. Today it is tacky, dated and stale. Worse it is tattered, poorly maintained and uninviting. The staff are pleasant enough and they attempt to smooth over all of the failures, but it must not be easy. The pet friendly... More

Please know that we have several other Kimpton Hotels in DC, all with a different style and feel. We hope that if the Rouge was not a good fit for you, you... More

Everything was very cool with repesct to decoration and the staff was mostly great. On the first night during the complementary wine hour the housekeeping... More

Hotel is beautiful and stylish. Check-in was quick and easy. We asked for a room change so we could have adjoining rooms, and they made the change for us easily even though the lobby was busy. We stayed in an Executive King Suite and a Double Queen combination for two adults and four teenagers. The rooms had plenty of room,... More

I was traveling in DC for a business trip and this hotel was perfect! It is in a perfect location. I checked in very late after traveling an entire day from California to an extremely pleasant and upbeat staff for it being very late at night. It is always nice to be greeted like that after an exhausting day of... More
