Have just come back from a break in new york and washington, in new york the hotel was not so good but in washington was amazing.

When I'm traveling on business, I always choose Kimpton if I can. I love their pet friendly philosophy, plus their quirky, fun decor. This trip to Hotel Rouge was outstanding! The staff (especially Abdul and Tina) helped me by walking my dog while I was in meetings. The room was huge and comfortable. The $1 breakfast was lovely. The location... More

Spent 4 nights at the Hotel Rouge. Very friendly staff, good central location to explore from. What I liked the most was the hotel welcomes K-9's. We did not travel with our dog's but really like the option. Several guests had their pooches traveling with them, and it did not bother us one iota. Great Option. The rooms were clean... More

Stayed two nights in January in room 207 Blush. Loved the hotel entrance with several Greek nudes lining the curb and chic brown leather doors that open to a sexy red lobby. Check in was quick and easy with Kevin, who informed me of all the peels of being a Karma member. Suggest to sign up as a Karma member... More

They aren't the cheapest, but the Rouge is one of the best hotel experiences. The staff is genuinely friendley, courteous, and very good. The hotel rooms are very nice and extremely clean. I have stayed here a number of times and it has been a great experience each time. In fact, it is the only place I'll stay in DC... More

Funky and fun (not to be mistaken with high-end) but we still enjoyed our 5 days. Was much further from most attractions then we'd anticipated, but was a quick 3-block walk to Whole Foods and the fantastic and affordable eatery, The Commissary. The downside? We had only intermittent TV access for about 3 days. Our room overlooked a parking lot... More

Great location, large comfortable rooms, free wi-fi and mini-bar credit, accommodating and welcoming staff -- what else could one ask for? I've stayed here many times and it's my first choice for reservations.

I think 2 1/2 stars would better reflect caliber of the Rouge. This is an older hotel with an early 2000's modern decor. The furniture in our room, which was located over the dumpsters, was stained, chipped and the sitting area chair was very uncomfortable but made a great luggage rack. The bed was ok, but the pillows were hard.... More

Dear pdwroble. Yikes, that doesn’t sound like the Rouge at all! We score amongst the highest in our company for room cleanliness so I am disappointed to hear about all of the issues you found. I will be sure to look into to the problems with the Director of Housekeeping in toe! I hope that you will try us again... More

The hotel very convenient to the major DC attractions, and even offers complementary bicycles for use during daylight hours.
