Have a fantastic stay! The decor of hotel is romantic. Staff are warm and accommodating!! We celebrated our birthday and the staff surprised my husband & I with a complimentary champagne and chocolate strawberry plate! I've stayed at many hotels, celebrating different occasions and this was the first comp surprise. The hotel lobby wine cocktail hour was nice as well!...

The Rouge follows the great tradition of Kimpton boutique hotels. However, in the case of Rouge, the rooms seem roomier. The decor of the hotel and rooms are visually appealing. The staff was professional, engaging and responsive. Of course, the event I enjoy at all Kimpton is the 5 o'clock managers reception. Enjoy wine and appetizers, like caprese. Oh, and...

I chose the Rouge based on a recommendation from a friend of mine living in DC. What I found was a hotel with flare. The Front desk staff was extremely helpful regarding directions, places to see and places to eat. I found the interior decor to be just as advertised. My room was very spacious, and having a thermostat to...

Yeah, the location is great but the hotel itself is a bit tired and faded. Room was large and the bed comfortable but not everything worked well. Staff was helpful and fixed the problems but these should not have happened at all. You can not beat the location. Breakfast is so-so but the seating arrangements poor. There are not many...

Dear PRR. Thank you for choosing the Hotel Rouge for your recent visit to DC. I am pleased that you enjoyed our location, but regret that a few issues in the room needed to be fixed after arrival. It is rare that our housekeeping and engineering departments miss repairs but we will certainly use your feedback to improve. I am...

This was my first trip to Washington DC and this hotel was a perfect location for easy access to the impressive buildings. We were very impressed with the decor. The staff were very friendly and gave us very helpful tips on restaurants. They even went several streets down to get us a taxi.

We stayed here for a long weekend, taking advantage of the fact this was a "pet friendly" hotel. The room was nice and the staff was very nice. However, there are some things I took away that made me think again about staying here. First, they offer to walk the dog, which is great, but also on one of the...

I stayed at the Hotel Rouge for 2 nights on a quick vaction to DC. The location of this hotel was great...located near Dupont Circle and a quick walk to the White House. The room was comfortable, and the red was a great theme, but tastefully done. The free wine at happy hour was great, as well as the food...

The front desk was amazing. I was having trouble printing and they were so helpful and sweet. They were always ready to give directions, smile and help. The room was very large but I do have to say...red gets old.

Decent hotel in a fairly decent seemingly "out of the way" location -- a six block or so walk to the edges of Dupont Circle. When you order ahead for a "feather free" room, which I did for my wife (and they confirmed it was non-feather when we arrive), you have a 50-50 chance that the pillows are indeed down...

Dear hapgator. Thank you for your review and I am pleased that you enjoyed your visit. I apologize that the room was not set up as feather free initially, a very rare mistake as many of our guests require this! We strive to be better than decent and look forward to your next visit where we will WOW you.
