I stayed here a few nights ago with my mom. We walked to the hotel from Union Station, which is about a half mile...not really recommended if you're dragging luggage! The check-in process was a bit of a fiasco; the desk clerk accidentally authorized my credit card twice. Not a major deal, but it took a bit to get it... More

We stayed here for 4 days in early April. The hotel is in a great location and is just a few blocks up from the White House. The rooms are very spacious and clean. The bed is particularly comfy. Staff were very friendly. Don't bother having the breakfast in the hotel as you will get better value in a diner.... More

From the minute we stepped into the lobby we felt welcomed. The reservation was made after Expedia had cancelled our reservation at another hotel without giving us notification. Sierra at the front desk listened to our story and made sure that our entire stay was memorable. Our housekeeper Karla left the room spotless each day and left us thank you... More

Very convenient location and very good sized room. Near to most attractions. This was cheaper than most other hotels within the area. Service was all right. I did not choose the breakfast. The manager offered me free wifi despite this was quoted as available but for a fee when I booked the room. The cleaner threw away the blade part... More

Kimpton Rouge The element that sets this hotel apart from all the others is the abundant use of the colour, eh yes red. Red is everywhere from tiles to tapestry to doors and to the panels behind the bed. We came to Kimton Rouge because of a conference in DC. Initially we had not planned to go there but our... More

Convenient location (10 minute drive north of dowtown), attentive staff, spacious, stylish rooms. I forgot something in my room and the housekeeping dept (specifically a woman named TIna) went above and beyond in researching the most cost-effective shipping option and arranged for next day delivery to my home.

Gorgeous atmosphere, comfortable rooms and stellar customer service! Not to mention, Danielle's Restaurant recommendations were ON POINT! We slept well, enjoyed the room, the business office allowed us to print our boarding passes with in minutes. Plus, the wine complementary wine hour was just what we needed after a long conference. Kudos Kimpton

We are Kimpton fans and Rouge lives up to what we expect. Love the location. Close to all the 14th Street food and drink but surrounded by beautiful buildings and quiet. An easy walk to Dupont for Metro. Other services on cross streets -I got fruit and breakfast items at the Whole Foods just five minutes away on P Street.... More

The large King is VERY large and comfortable. Baths are small but were as expected from the pics online. Staff is upbeat and helpful. Location is perfect. We were worried we were next to the elevators but heard almost zero noise from them. Only complaint was breakfast quality. Grocery store breads and hard mellon. Coffee was excellent though...

Rooms are not in good condition, even though we upgraded to a "suite" the room looks as it is not well kept, the curtain fabric is fading and looks very old and dusty. Worst part is the condition of the bathroom door, broken on the bottom part plus the doorknob doesn´t work and locks you inside the bathroom. The size... More
