Seeing a Kimpton Hotel special offer on the internet, we decided to reserve a King room at the Hotel George rather than drive home after a day and evening of socializing in Washington DC.
We received an almost unheard of rate of just less than $100 for a great DC hotel. We were greeted warmly by the valet and the front desk personnel. Check in was almost instant. Our room was fairly spacious, with an adequate closet, flat screen TV, desk, small sofa and a well appointed and very comfortable king bed. It was spotlessly clean and almost everything worked. As a member of the Kimpton Hotel awards program we received free internet (which was fast and flawless) and a complimentary $10 "raid" of the mini-bar. The bathroom was clean and well lit. It was not large but very adequate for the two of us.
After a flawless check out the following morning we drove home only to discover that we had left several articles in the room's dresser drawer. A phone call to the hotel confirmed that they had the articles and would either mail them to us, or hold them for pick up. This was not the hotel's fault, but they stepped up immediately to remedy the situation for us.
We did not eat at Bistro Bis, the Hotel's restaurant, but we did visit the bar. Service was friendly and prompt. There was a good vibe in the bar area, providing us with a pleasant atmosphere for a glass of wine with friends.
Overall a great experience at a very reasonable price. The only very slight negative was the bathroom sink that did not drain very fast. Given the condition of the rest of the facility, I believe it would be repaired for the next guest, though we did not report the problem until we checked out.
This place is a great and we'll visit again!
