I was pleasantly surprised by the nice rooms and the size of the rooms in this property. Cool urban location between two key focal points of the city, logan circle and dupont circle. Front desk service was very friendly and responsive. Does not have the good restaurant, food experience you would normally expect from a Kimpton property, plan to walk... More

I stayed here for one night recently. It felt creepy. The hotel is extremely red. There were no light switches in my room, I had to fumble around with lamps, each of which turned on a different way. If you like dark, dusty rooms, red velvet, and worn animal print fun fur everywhere, this is the place for you. The... More

Another great Kimpton hotel made even better by an amazing hotel manager. The Kimpton group knows that they're only as good as the hotel manager they put in place. Modi Ahmed is one of the finest hotel managers you'll have the pleasure of meeting. (I used to work in hospitality) Extremely clean rooms in a great location put this place... More

Like the color red? Then you'll love this vibrant, funky hotel situated perfectly between two great DC walking neighborhoods, Dupont and Logan Circles. (about five very pleasant blocks to the Metro). Membership has its privileges and arriving early in the week allowed me an upgrade to a fantastic room the size of my living room at home---perfect for a five... More

We rented one of the Double Queen + Bunk Bed rooms for my recent bachelorette party. It was nearly perfect. Enough space to spend time as a group between planned activities, and room for all of us to sleep. The décor of Hotel Rouge is perfect for a bachelorette/girls weekend, too! The only down side is that the room only... More

Very spacious rooms, modern, friendly service and centrally located between Dupont and Logan Circle, easily a 10 min walk from subway. Close to the 17th street cafe's, club and restaurants. Free wine hour from 5 till 6 PM. Free fast wifi when you become a member of the Kimpton hotel chain.

We stayed here on the second half of my business trip that we turned into a long weekend and once we got to the hotel, we were very pleased that we decided not to stay at the conference hotel. Everything is decorated nicely - it felt posh and much more special than your traditional Hilton. The room was surprisingly spacious,... More

Was in town for a conference around the corner at the Double Tree. The Rouge has a boutique feel to it. The lobby is kind of dark with all of the red and black decor. Rooms are VERY spacious and the bed was comfortable. To note: If you are a Kimpton Rewards member and book through an outside site (Tripadvisor,... More
