“Great Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2011

Stayed here in September, 2011. Room was clean, spacious, and comfortable. Staff was super nice. It rained all 3 days we were there and I never left the hotel without someone, either the bellboy or a front desk person making sure I had an umbrella.

My wife and I spent the weekend at Hotel George on Capitol Hill. It was a terrific experience! The hotel is relatively small with a very warm and intimate feeling inside. It's a great location, within blocks of The Capitol, near the subway, a short walk to The Mall (and a half block from Starbucks :-) The staff was very friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. The French restaurant "Bistro bis" is outstanding...rivals the best in Paris or La Côte d'Azur. We'll definitely be back!

Room Tip: We had a room on the back and it was quiet.

Stayed here late August, 2011. No complaints. We checked in very late on a Thursday night and had no problems. We had great customer service. The room was spacious, comfortable. Bathroom shower has built-in shampoo, conditioner and soap dispenser. The bar has great drinks if you need a nightcap.

My husband and I have stayed at Hotel George on two different trips. The hotel has a great location just a couple of blocks from Union Station, which has a Metro stop. The Metro is one the easiest and cheapest ways to get around DC. The hotel is also a short walk to The Mall. I love to get up early and take a walk around the monuments and museums. There is always ice water waiting for you in the lobby and there is a wine reception in the evenings. The standard king room is very nice sized, probably average for a hotel in a big city. The room is modern and comfortable with white linens and sleek wood. The bathroom is nice, with great products and a full sized hairdryer (love that I don't ahve to pack mine!) I've never had a bad night's sleep at Hotel George.
I would suggest joining the Kimpton rewards program. I think it offers free wi-fi and a credit at you room's mini-bar. I now look for Kimpton hotels whenever we travel. Last year we stayed at the Hotel Monaco in Alexandria, VA and it was wonderful as well.
I'm looking to stay at one of their NYC hotels this winter, and I'm hoping that the Kimpton hotels NYC live up to the DC area ones.

Stayed 4 nights at this hotel and was very happy with our stay. Room was clean and spacious as was the lobby. It is a great location to the Capitol and Union Station. Would stay here again. Join their rewards program for free Internet and $10 for the mini bar in your room.

Have no problems recommending this hotel. Large room - more than enough space for two adults and two teenage daughters. Quite expensive though. Boutique hotel chique, but down two earth polite and friendly from the staff.
Booked this hotel also for the convenient location, close to Grand Central, wherefrom we caught a train to New York on a Monday morning. Also an excellent base for exploring the capital.

Decent restaurant connected two the reception area and a Starbucks a block away.

Bit pricey. But sometimes you get what you pay for.

A homeless shelter - or something like that - down the road might deter somone from walking this way after dark.

I love staying at the Hotel George. The bathrooms are spacious with plenty of counterspace for your accoutrements. The staff are superbly friendly and the wine tasting is always a nice relaxing event. I *love* the robes and look forward to putting one on as soon as I arrive. The wifi works great and I can really get a lot done. It's conveniently located and when the weather is good I can walk to all my meetings, or to Union Station. Whenever I'm in DC, I try to stay here!
