I enjoyed my stay at Rouge back in May. The hotel room was very nice and clean. I had the end room on the 2nd floor. It's such a great location and close to everything. It's a short walk to the White House and the monuments. It's just a few blocks way from Whole Foods. It's also a short walk... More

We were caught up in the Reagan National power outage and could not get a flight out on schedule. The hotel was very gracious and did not charge us for an unused night. We read all of the pertinent details prior to our visit. As Kimpton members, we were delighted to receive free Wifi and free snacks for our kids... More

Kimpton is lying to customers in their loyalty reward program. Today I noticed my room booked via their direct hotel website, featuring a "Best Price. Guaranteed." banner at the top of the page had significantly overcharged me compared to other internet rates. (Note that the ad has a full-stop period at the end, not an astrix. Anyway...) I called to... More

Lovely style and good sized bedrooms. Excellent location for Dupont Circle. Small public areas and lifts, pretty basic service and breakfast. Just what needed on a rushed business trip, with an extra dash of style.

From the free wine hour at 5pm to the "Raid the Bar" $10 coupon, to the eclectic furniture in my room, this hotel was fun. Want to borrow a bike, they have it. Small little quiet bar, with simple good food, they have it. Well located near Dupont Circle, well priced and spacious rooms. This hotel is a "go to'... More

I stayed in Rouge for a short business trip and I wished I could have stayed longer, and brought my husband along. The staff were totally friendly and accommodating, even over the phone and email. The bed was comfortable and the room spotless. There are tons of nice little surprises like the umbrella and yoga mat in the closet and... More

There's nothing more I hate in life than being negative. But sometimes you've got to alert your fellow travelers to an unfortunate reality. This is one of those times. Thankfully, there are MANY comparable and better hotels in the same neighborhood at the same price point. First, the positive: 1. GREAT location: Between Dupont and Logan. Near downtown. (I lived...

What a fun well located hotel. Very red everywhere, the rooms are very spacious, big comfy beds with air conditioning. The bathroom is clean and odeon. The extras of leopard dressing gowns were strange for us. Very centrally located.

We stayed here for 5 nights in July and were really happy with our choice. The hotel is in a great location, within easy walk of restaurants and subway. We have previously stayed in a Kimpton hotel in New York and like the boutique feel of the brand. The room was very spacious, enough room for two adults and two... More

My wife and I stayed here this past weekend for two nights. The color scheme and decor are a little swanky, but overall nice. We enjoyed the free happy hour each night as well as the complementary room upgrade just for joining their free rewards program. My main complaint would be the $45/night ($51 after tax) to "valet" your car.... More
