“Great Stay: Upscale Hotel that Felt Like Home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

A friend who lives in the area recommened Hotel Monaco (another Kimpton Hotel) but we decied on The George due to proximity to Union Station. The George is a modern boutique hotel that had all the amenities AND many more. All room furnishings were new, clean and well maintained. When we checked in we had to make arrangements to store frozen foods that we brought with us from CA, and the front desk staff gladly took care of this for us. We were able to check-in a bit early (much appreciated after a red-eye flight!). All our small requests were accomadated with a smile. Hotel was very near Capitol, 1 block from Union Station, and within walking to most NW attractions. Getting taxis and airport shuttles was easy. Loaner bikes available in lobby. Environmentally conscious hotel. We had a Great Stay, we felt as though we were at home! The Bistro Restaurant was an added bonus, but we sampled many of the other local food offerings. Of you like higher-end, un pretentious hotels, then this is a place for you.

This Euro boutique hotel is conveniently located near the Capitol and Union Station. It is a great Kimpton. Clean, friendly staff, great rates, Nice rooms and decent room service food.
If you have business on the Hill, this is the place to stay. Also nice wine bar in the lobby the weeknight I was there...

Room Tip: Choose side of hotel away from E Street

Stayed with my teen son for a sight-seeing trip in DC. We stayed 5 nights. Even before we got there, I had asked questions to Edguardo, a guest services professional, who was kind in answering all questions and very welcoming and professional when we arrived. They have nice amenities if you sign up for their free loyalty program with free Wifi, some snacks and wine reception in the evening among other things. Edguardo went beyond and wrote personalized welcoming notes to make us feel at home and was able to get a mini-frig which I had requested since we stayed so long and were very tired at the end of our days. It was my first time in DC and each staff member made you feel like they cared about you and wanted to help. It was very close to walk to union station to use the metro or busses and a few blocks to walk to the capitol and the mall. Easy to stay without a car. The price was reasonable for where you were and being a nice boutique hotel. Would definitely stay there again.

We stayed at the Hotel George over Christmas vacation for four nights based on a TripAdvisor review. We made rather last minute reservations, so because we were traveling with two teenage girls, opted to get two adjoining rooms.

The location of the hotel is very good -- on Capitol Hill, not far from Union Station and the Metro. If you come by car, you don't have a lot of parking options except to use their valet. This goes for about $40 per night (!!!), bu because we have a Prius Hybrid, we got a 50% discount on the parking (!!!) which made he cost somewhat more reasonable.

Except for inside Union Station, there aren't a lot of restaurants around that aren't part of hotels. We didn't eat at the hotel, so can't vouch for the food. The bellman/valet was very friendly and very helpful and one day we came back soaking from the pouring rain outside and he offered me a towel to dry my hair -- very hospitable indeed. Every time we saw him, he always greeted us with a cheerful hello. The desk staff was also just as friendly and helpful. They're clearly very customer-oriented.

The lobby is nice and smartly decorated, but small -- typical for a boutique hotel. They had free hot chocolate which was very good and perfect timing. There is a lounge off to the other side. We were never quite sure if it was a bar or a restaurant or both, so we never used it.

The rooms are reasonable, though a bit on the small side. Our windows looked directly across from others in another part of the hotel, so we needed to draw the shades whenever we were in the room. Not terribly inconvenient, but somewhat strange. The beds were super comfortable and the bathrooms adequate and clean, although some might see some of the wearing away in the grout. Not terribly off-putting, but you may not notice. If you sign up for the Kimpton in-Touch (?) program when you make the reservation, you get a $10 voucher for items in the room bar, which we didn't use anyway. You also get free internet when you sign up and can connect more than one device at a time (we had five devices and all were able to connect with the same account), so it's worthwhile.

Our daughters' room had an unused pull-down Murphy bed that didn't seem properly secured to the wall. This made them a bit nervous that it might fall down during the night (but it didn't nevertheless).

All-in-all, we would definitely stay here again. We paid $99 per room over the Christmas vacation week, so we felt we got a good deal. I also don't always spend the time writing reviews for hotels that don't stand out, good or bad. Because I thought the Hotel George was a great find, I'm taking the time. Thanks!

Reception was very outgoing and willing to help out at anytime. Our room was nice and spacious. We stayed in a room with a single double bed. Room featured easy to use and free Wi-Fi. Good location just a short walk of the White House and the Mall! The restaurant attached to the hotel is first class! One of the best meals I had! The price was excellent for a hotel of this quality in a convenient location. We were very pleased.

Also the pet policy is amazing we brought are dog for no charge.The Location is right next to the capital building so you do not have a far way to travel to it. I would stay at the George anytime I come to D.C

I recently stayed at the Hotel George for a New Year Eve celebration in DC with friends. Great first impression -- love the decor. It was simply a nice boutique hotel. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Great location to Union Station and the Capitol. The rooms were clean and nicely accommodating. Love the wine reception they have ... just what you may need after a long day of travel or just to unwind for the evening. I would stay at this hotel again and would highly recommend it for personal and business travel.
