“great location, great price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

GREAT location, just blocks from Union Station, lots of dining and easy walk to and from stops on the trolley for sight seeing. Room was spacious and clean. Hotel food was just ok and too pricey but other than that we loved our stay there.

What a wonderful place to stay in DC! Only two blocks from Union Station and close to the Capitol and National Mall, the Hotel George is a perfect home base when visiting DC. We visited to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We were welcomed to our room with a plate of cookies, botte of wine on ice and a cute anniversary card from the staff. Our room was on the 8th floor, well above street noise. It was so quiet we often thought we were the only guests at this fully booked hotel. The staff, from doorman to housekeeper were all welcoming and exemplary. From the moment we arrived we felt like we were staying with friends. We enjoyed the wine and beer reception in the lobby each evening. They even had a caricature artist on hand for free sketches.
The room was impeccably clean, well furnished and welcoming. We loved the robes and slipper socks, too. The bed was comfortable, especially after a long day of sightseeing. We look forward to staying at the Hotel George again.

Room Tip: Higher floors have less street noise.

The George surpassed all we expected. This was our first stay at a Kimpton Hotel, and certainly will not be our last. Everyone provided impeccable service to my family. Very convenient location, clean, furnished modern, and service that surpassed expectations from bell hop to front desk to housekeeping. A rollaway bed was provided at no charge for my son. Free wifi, mini bar raid, and newspapers to Kimpton In Touch members. A wonderful wine/beer/ Shirley temple hour lol every evening while my son played Wii with the other guests children. Also, a new movie set up for the kids to watch as well. The restaurant was outstanding as well from the food to the waitstaff. Not a bad thing to say about our stay at Hotel George.

We stayed here for 4 nights, my husband and 2 teenagers. This was well located in a nice part of the city and only a couple minutes walk from Union Station. We walked to all museums and most attractions within 15 mins or less. We did the tour bus once which took us to the out of the way sites including Georgetown (a must see). I would highly recommend this hotel, a true 4.5 star, the restaurant and bar had a good atmosphere and free wine and beer tasting was a great bonus, the gym was also well equipped. Great value!

Room Tip: I always request a room away from the elevator

From the bellhop to the front desk manager, it is quite apparent that Kimptom Hotels is very adept at hiring personnel. Everyone went out of their way to make our stay a more than pleasurable experience. My wife and I have stayed at a few hotels in DC, but we have now found a new home when we are in this area. Big kudos to the staff, and we look forward to returning to the Hotel George. Because of their treatment, we are changing our original plans to stay at the Ritz Carlton in NYC and are instead heading to another Kimptom hotel. Muse, here we come!

My sister and Mother stayed here for my Mothers birthday last weekend and have nothing but the best things to say about this hotel. The main areas of the hotels are beautifully furnished, clean and modern. The rooms are fabulous with enough room in the double queen room for 3. We visited the restaurant for breakfast on our last morning and were met with great service and fabulous food. The location is prime for visiting all the monuments, memorials and museums. The best part of the hotel though was the service. Every evening they have a complimentary wine serving. While we were there they also had a screening of a brand new movie for the children with popcorn and juice boxes. Edgar Padilla gave us incredible restaurant choices, arranged a car service for us the last day AND surprised my Mother with cookies, chocolate and a bottle of champagne for her birthday. His service and attention to detail was unparraled and he made our stay perfection. We will be visiting this hotel again for sure.

Great for a business trip. Can easily walk to Union Station, Smithsonian, The Capitol. Quick taxi ride from Reagan airport. Spacious and clean rooms, courteous staff. Coffee in room.You will get freebies like $10 allowance at mini-bar, free wi-fi, newspaper. You just have to become a Kimpton hotels program member (free online) when making reservation. Manager's wine hour at 5PM daily is a great way to unwind. This hotel offers good value for money.
