Very friendly staff looking to help you. We forgot a few items and they had them at the ready. Rooms are fun and cheerful. Location is very central and easy to get to the mall and National Geographic museum. Pet friendly.

Stayed for a week here, big comfortable room. Hotel within easy walking distance of the the White House and the National Mall with all the sights and museums. The Metro is a short distance away in DuPont Circle which also has some great bars and resturants. The staff were very helpful.

This boutique hotel exceeded my expectations. It's located just a few blocks north of the White House and is close to the bus lines and the metro. The rooms are quite comfortable and they have free bikes available.

We only had 2 nights for our first time in Washington DC & Hotel Rogue is perfectly located near The White House & National Mall so we saw all the monuments that were on the list. It's also close to the Metro to Arlington. The beds are comfortable, the reception staff friendly & knowledgeable ... & there's a happy hour... More

I briefly stayed at the Rouge Hotel in Washington D.C. I had an event that I was attending and I knew I wasn't going to make it home. So I opted to stay at the Rouge. The hotel itself is very nice and surprisingly spacious. The room was nice and clean. The bathtub was a little on the dirty side... More

So for starters maybe it's my fault but had no clue the hotel was going to take an extra 200 bucks from us at check in a place it on hold... So thankful of course we had it but being completely blindsided by it sucked because that taped into our spending budget while we were in DC so basically all... More

Had a 3 night anniversary weekend there. Couldn't have been nicer. We had back room that was quiet. Wine hour every evening and coffee available in the morning. Friendly staff, always smiling and very helpful. We had a large clean room. Moderate price, and a great experience. We would come back in a heartbeat!

Inspiring styling, great (though small) bar, complimentary snacks, wine, pizza, varying times of day. Attentive staff. Walking distance to restaurants and attractions. Trendy boutique concept well executed. Small, but intimate, overall. Though we did not use, we would return with kids, given family style rooms with bunks and video games.

I spent one night at Hotel Rouge in an Executive King Room. For my purposes (I was in DC for a concert), this hotel fit the bill. I found the cost to be appropriate for the location and cleanliness of the hotel. A lot of people have commented on the decor: I found it to be sexy and fun, not... More

Kimpton is my preferred hotel brand, so when I had a couple of extra days in DC, I decided to try the Rouge. On the plus side: Very friendly desk staff, great location, the usual Kimpton perks (wine hour, free wifi, minibar credit, the social password that got us additional drink vouchers for the bar). I booked during a sale,... More
