5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

I love it when a review can practically write itself because other reviewers have already made the same conclusions I have. Clean, quiet, nice rooms, friendly staff. We were on a top floor on the back side because other reviews noted the street noise could be a problem in street facing rooms. A minor problem in the room was immediately... More

This is a great hotel with an incredibly friendly staff, eclecticly hip rooms and an intimate bar in the lobby. Great location with quick access to DuPont Circle, Starbucks a block away for a morning coffee and many restaurants/bars within a short walk.

I was there with my girlfriend for 3 nights. It's quiet, very clean and the stuff is kind and responsive. We had a very large room with a deal that included continental breakfast (good and abundant), and wifi. At the end of our stay I was supposed to pay for car parking (valet) and they said: "it's on us". A... More

Normally wouldn't bother to say how great I think the Rouge is but this time I do. Arrived with my group of 11 having traveled for 40 hours door to door (in coach!) to reach the Rouge at 11am unbelievably 90 minutes after we stepped off our flight at IAD. Everything I'd therefore read from all the blogs about the... More

The Rouge is one of my favorite places to stay in DC! First and foremost is the staff: They are all top notch and REALLY, REALLY, customer service focused! Second is location: Easy walk to Dupont, circle, White House, or 14th street corridor. No matter what you're looking for, you can get there quickly from the Rouge. And last but... More

This is an excellent hotel but beware of minor annoyances: (1) The curtains in the larger rooms are designery which means that you have to draw four of them open and then make do with only half the window light; (2) Wi-fi is patchy so you might need to get a booster from front desk and deposit $250; (3) kitchen...

This hotel was great!! The staff was very nice and they helped us a lot. It was very nice. The room was very nice. The view from the room was very incredible! My mom loved the complimentary wine hour, too. My only complaint is that the elevators are a little small, but other than that I think people should check... More

This is my first stay at the Rouge. I'm not disappointed. Danielle and Cameron are great. The place is Sexy in the city. I've stayed at other Kimpton properties, and I have never felt like I made a mistake. The rooms are comfortable and geared for relaxation and work. I'm a fan.

Staff was very helpful and approachable. Super location for DuPont Circle and the Metro. Fun area to walk around. Clean. Will stay there again if in the area. Continental breakfast was ok...bagels and pastry could have been a bit fresher.

Thanks, Hotel Rouge! You managed to make an otherwise miserably high-pressure trip to DC more bearable. In addition to a great big quiet room -- perfect for late night doc review -- your room service was top-notch. Your friendly staff really went above and beyond, and helped me bring my A Game.
