I always like Kimpton, with their fun and funky style and nice little perks like free wifi and "raid the minibar" for their Karma club members. But what I really loved about Hotel Rouge - on top of the great, central location - were the amazingly large rooms. Very spacious and comfortable! I will definitely try to stay here again... More

Overall experience continues to be far above average: attentive staff; great room options (size, comfort, functionality, service); friendly management; quiet location yet around the corner from two vibrant area (Dupont and Logan). Beds incredibly comfortable. Color theme a bit odd but that's part of hotel character.

I've stayed here several months in a row as part of regular trips to DC and I very much enjoy the Rouge. I haven't been able to take advantage of the happy hour or other perks yet, but the rooms, staff and fitness room are all very nice. Plus, the location is perfect, with easy access by for to Dupont... More

I've stayed several times at The Rouge. The staff is consistently helpful. The rooms are quiet, comfortable and spacious (I've stayed in the Executive King room). Location near Dupont Circle is great for walking to the Metro and a variety of restaurants and sights. Each Kimpton is unique and fun. Makes for a memorable versus cookie-cutter experience.

I stayed here last weekend with my spouse, to celebrate a birthday.The staff were so nice and made our stay really special. On a cold day (well, cold for DC) they even had hot cider out at the wine hour. The location of this hotel cannot be beat -- close to DuPont Circle and the U street coridor and in... More

I come to DC for work and to visit friends several times a year, and I almost always stay at the Rouge. The funky nightclub decor is unique, and while it may not be for everyone, I find it rather comforting. The rooms are spacious, and have good areas to work, or just chill and relax. The staff are always... More

As always, Kimptons are dog friendly and the staff seems to love dogs. We enjoyed the wine reception, and the dogs were given so much attention while we sipped our wine. The hotel is beautiful and well kept. During the snowstorm, the staff worked tirelessly to keep the floors clean and walks shoveled.

We just spent a night at Rouge during the snowstorm that hit D.C. It was an early birthday celebration. We are big Kimpton fans and the Rouge was definitely up to our high expectations for a room decorated with flair, extremely helpful and friendly front desk staff and relaxing atmosphere that includes a wine hour at 5:00. Rouge is in... More

Hotel is right in the heart of the city. You are walking distance to the metro and various cool neighborhoods and even the mall/white house area. This is not a super fancy place, but it is quite nice - and because of how central the location is, when compared to other hotel options, it is a decent price. Rooms are... More
