“Classy, Contemporary Vibe!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

Fabulous contemporary vibe is distinctly different from the history of DC. When you walk into this hotel, you feel like you're in another city. After seeing the grand, historic monuments, memorials and museums in DC, this hotel is wonderfully vibrant and chic. So, you really don't know it, but after you see and visit the different sites in DC, you feel instantly refreshed by the vibe of this inviting boutique hotel.

But, the vibe is combined with the warmth of a bright, cozy lobby, friendly staff and comfortable rooms. Great beds and throws at the end of the bed make you feel welcomed here. Your return visit to the Hotel George is important to the staff and hotel because your comfort is ensured.

A walk outside and you back in the grand history of Washington, D.C. Otherwise, this hotel would make you feel like your in NYC or LA. The location is very close to the Capital, Smithsonian museums and Union Station. Union Station is a monument as well and has great restaurants and shopping, just in the event you've forgotten something you can't find in most hotels or a boutique hotel.

Just behind the hotel, between the hotel and Union Station, there are two Irish pubs. With the location, the helpful, accommodating staff, and the cool, comforable vibe of the Hotel George you may forget where you are, but you will remember this hotel!

Room Tip: Ask for a room that doesn't overlook the HVAC. This can be avoided, if you simply ask.

This is a great hotel, the staff were fabulous, it was handy to all the necessary places you need in DC. The room was great, the bed superb, a wonderful stay. The bar was a great place to unwind, and they have a wine hour in the lobby every night.

We reserved at Hotel George based on Trip Advisor reviews, and were not disappointed. It is very conveniently located between the Capitol and Union Station, so close to metro but also walkable from many Smithsonian locations and other spots. The staff was friendly and helpful with advice (metro, walk, or taxi? etc.). And don't miss the complimentary wine hour - the sangria was terrific and they even gave printed copies of the recipe! Dinner at the Bistro Bis was lovely with great menu choices, and breakfast at the corner bakery was super and inexpensive. We will visit again!

Nice boutique hotel -- our first time staying at a Kimpton, but won't be our last. On the corner is a great spot for breakfast or lunch so you don't have to pay big bucks for breakfast at the hotel restaurant. Although the restaurant, Bistro Bis is fabulous for dinner and would highly recommend. This is a great location, close to Union Station, we walked to the mall and Smithsonians every day, Penn quarter for dinner one night, eastern market... or you can cab it as there are cabs everywhere.

This was my first experience staying at a Kimpton Hotel and I look forward to trying more of their properties. This hotel offers a Capitol Hill location with a short walk from Union Station. A small but elegant lobby is welcoming and hosts an evening wine hour. We spent two restful nights in a comfy bed with awesome linens. An extra bonus are the bikes you can check out for a spin around town. What really stands out at this hotel is the unsurpassed customer service. Smiling faces greet each customer during check in. The staff and management really goes out of their way to unsure a great experience for every guest.

We had a one Night stay at Hotel George.

The room was large and spotless, the fixtures and fitting were top class and very boutique.

The Beds were extremely comfortable, everything worked as it should.

Reception were extremely helpful.

Breakfast in the Restaurant was very nice, and the waiters very happy and chatty.

Would certainly recommend this Hotel and would glady go back if we are in the vacinity again.

Room Tip: Only a one night stopover but we were upgraded to A King Size room as the Room Booking was messed up...

I was familiar with the Kimpton hotels and this was an easy decision to book ere foror one night stay. We were upgraded from a queen to a king room. Very well appointed with an efficient use of space, though the separate tub and stall shower were a bit strange. Staff was very friendly. Hotel is very close to Union Station, restaurantsand bars and the Capitol building. We walk a lot, so the distance to other monuments was manageable. At an rate, there are two Metro Stations nearby to take you everywher, even if the Metro system is a little tough to figure out. We'd stay here again, for sure.
