“Great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

My spouse, two children and I stayed at this location for our first visit to the capital this December. We picked this hotel because Kimpton hotels are so nice, the location next to Union station and metro access was awesome, and they had a great off season / preChristmas deal. It was easy to walk to the capital building and Smithsonian and easy to catch the metro for more distant destinations. The in hotel restaurant Bistro Bis was pricy but excellent. The hotel staff were exceptionally friendly. The room with 2 queen beds accommodated our family well. It was an older hotel redone as a Kimpton so there was some wear but it was very clean. We were on the 7th floor and had no noise issues. It will certainly be my first choice when we return again.

Room Tip: There was no street noise in our 7th floor room.

The location is perfect for walking to museums or taking the metro as Union Station is so close. It's very clean with a super-helpful staff, ready to help with finding good restaurants (that were gluten-free), and procuring special museum tickets for my boys. Good design, a wonderful staff and doggie bed with bowls were much appreciated. We've stayed here before and we'll stay here again as it's part of what makes going to Washington DC so wonderful for us.

My wife and I celebrated our 4th anniversary with a weekend stay at Hotel George. We had a lovely experience in the city, and the our accomodations were wonderful. The hotel is conveniently located close to Union Station. Every staff member we encountered was gregarious and helpful. And the staff even sent a lovely card, bottle of wine, and cookie plate to our room to help us celebrate. The daily wine reception in the lobby was a welcome experience and the hot toddies provided some much needed warmth from the blustery cold weather. We certainly would stay here again!

Would have given the hotel 5 star plus but we had some problems with a very noisy ventilation system and a disappointing Christmas breakfast. Avoid prebooking breakfast at hotel. Overall however we'll be back:)

This is an amazing hotel. Walking distance to the train station and metro. We were given cookies and wine in our room when they realized it was my husbands birthday. Super friendly and helpful staff. The sheets are so nice and the beds are super comfortable. It feels so clean.

The staff is terrific--helpful, courteous, and efficient. Rooms are well-appointed and comfortable. Convenient to the Capital and Federal Courthouse. I didn't eat in the restaurant on this trip, but have in prior trips and the food is excellent. Mini-bar is well-stocked and suprisingly reasonably priced. Rooms are good sized, although they don't offer particularly interesting views. Plenty to do in the area and it's easy to walk to where you need to be.

My wife and I decided to stay here while on an overnight trip to see Washington, DC. Everything with this Kimpton hotel was fantastic. While booking the hotel, I noticed a Last Minute Deal price drop from the Last Minute Deal I had booked earlier. With no questions asked, the customer service rep on the phone adjusted my non-refundable price, and gave me a better room!

Arrival was easy. Despite the construction all over Washington, it was pretty easy to get to this hotel. Once there, the decor was wonderful and welcome. The staff was pleasant and accommodating. We arrived 4 hours prior to check in and were offered a different room than our original room, if we wanted. We passed, but it was nice to know the offer was there.

Despite being in a major city, the room was spacious (for a city room) and had every amenity that counted. An umbrella, robes, and my absolute favorite - 2 charging stations. By far one of the most needed things in hotels these days. The charging stations had a USB port for smart phones and for tablets.

Parking is a bit of a hassle, but use the parking garage across the street for a lower rate than valet, if you don't plan on moving your car. There are 1 or 2 free street parking spots, if you can snag one, in front of the hotel.

All in all Hotel George manages to keep up the Kimpton style, quality and excellence.
