We have stayed at most of the kimptons in DC- this one falls right in the middle. Location is great- rooms were clean and spacious. We were in room 416- seemed to be in a corner and had extra space- very nice! The breakfast- no so great- but ours was included for $1 extra- can't complain too much, fresh fruit... More

We needed a room for five on very short notice and were quite happy to get one here for a reasonable price. The beds and pillows were comfortable, the room was spacious (2 queens and a rollaway), the shower was good. It was not a particularly quiet room - could hear hallway noise and noise from the room next door... More

Stayed at this hotel for a recent family trip to Washington for 3 nights and would certainly recommend it, particularly if travelling with family. We stayed in a room with king size bed and 2 bunk-beds in a separate alcove, which also included a TV, games and a playstation. Judging by the small leopard-print bathrobes it was aimed at younger...

Had a good size room with 2 queen beds for 3 nights. The beds and beddings are very comfortable, one of the best sleeps I had outside my own bed. Bold decorations in the hotel. No coffee/tea in the room but you can get them at the reception in the morning. A short walk the White House and other monuments.... More

We enjoyed our stay at hotel Rouge. It was convenient to two fun areas: DuPont circle and 14th street. The staff was friendly and their recommendations for restaurants and attractions were spot-on. Our room was very large (king) which was lovely. All in all it was a great stay. It is 4-5 blocks to the nearest metro, but the walk... More
