“Best in DC”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

I stay at Hotel George regularly and it is always great. Perfectly located near the capitol and easy to get to the subway. Staff here are always friendly and helpful. Restaurant is one of the best in DC serving outstanding french food.

I travelled to participate in a national collaborative retreat and was directed to the Hotel George as one of the lodging options as the location was very close to our meeting venue.
I had not previously stayed at a Kimpton Hotel and was pleasantly surprised by the attention to the information I completed on my "In-Touch Membership". Staff members were pleasant and with this being my first time in DC, helpful in providing me maps and information on the many attractions. I liked the boutique atmosphere and my room was in a quiet location, clean, spacious, and very comfortable.I enjoyed a breakfast meal in the Bis restaurant and excellent wine in the lounge as well as during the wine/beer hour in the lobby. Overall an excellent experience, highly recommended!

Room Tip: Recommend enrolling in the "In-touch" member program allows one to select room preferences...

Am surprised at all the rave reviews. Check in service efficient and pleasant. Hotel itself is in need of refurbishing. Hallways are really depressing and room (6th floor on E St side) felt dated; visible spots on room easy chair; no turn-down service; no extra pillows in room; pump bottle dispensers for soap, shampoo, etc., housekeeping for day didn't arrive until after 3:30 pm. None of these things alone are awful, but hotel certainly does not exude luxury.

Hotel restaurant, Bistro Bis is pretty highly rated. Again, surprised. Food average and also in need old a re-do: banquette seats had holes/cracks. Hotel says its independent, but it doesn't reflect we'll on hotel.

General Manager, Chris Cannon: MCSCarmel, I was pleased to read that your experience at the front desk was pleasant. However, I do apologize for your less than stellar stay in regards to your feedback about the condition of the hotel. We have a full renovation scheduled for early next year so we hope to see you again to turn this experience around. Thank you for your business.

I travelled to participate in oral arguments at the Supreme Court. The location was superb--just one block from the train station and several blocks to Capital Hill and the Supreme Court.

As with most Kimpton Hotels, I was treated well as an in-touch member upon arrival. It is not inexpensive to stay there, but it is a beautiful boutique hotel with great ammenities. Wonderful staff.

Room Tip: Ask for higher level/quiet.

We stayed at this boutique hotel in August 2012 after dropping off our daughter at UMD. The staff was very friendly and had the admosphere of being at home, but with a chic flare. It is in a great location near the Capitol and Union Station. We were only here two nights and got a great rate through priceline. Absolutely no complaints except we wish we could have stayed longer!

We arrived by Armtrak at Union Station, just 5 minutes walking from Hotel George. After a very quick and friendly check-in to a room on the 4th floor we went to Capitol Hill, 7 minutes walking.
There is a metro station very close to the hotel.

Room was very spacious, impeccably clean and the beds very comfortable. There were pillows of various firmness. Lines were very good quality. The bathroom was large with great Gilchrist & Soames toiletries.

We had breakfast twice at Bistro Bis. The food was amazing but quite expensive. We recommend Union Station that has a wide range of delicious options with affordable prices.

There was a cooler containg water in the lobby and every afternoon happened a complimentary wine happy hour. If you sign up for In-Touch membership you get free wi-fi and additional amenities.

It was an enjoyable stay! Will definiteley return to the George next time we come to DC.

For Kimpton fans, Hotel George delivers what you are used to - great service, welcoming staff, and front desk staff that go that extra distance to achieve surprise and delight for Inner Circle guests. Here are my comments in brief:

Best Things about this hotel:
- It's only a 5-minute walk to/from Union Station and its a safe walk from that station at just about all hours. Union Station is great for boarding the metro, grabbing a light meal, or connecting to the Amtrak. From the airport (DCA), its a quick 25-minute, $4 Metro ride to Union Station
- It's a really easy walk to the Capitol and the mall and because of all the Capitol police in the area, it's a great place to take a safe nighttime walk to/from the National Mall
- Like all Kimptons, There is a free wine hour at 5:00 in the lobby.

Other comments:
- This Kimpton does not serve free coffee in the lobby in the morning. That was kind of a bummer, but there are single-cup coffee makers in each guest room with complimentary coffee.
- the rooms were a little tired, but they were clean and comfortable and the bathrooms were really nice.

I have stayed in many different hotels in Washington, DC and several different areas. I think I would choose Hotel George again due its close (walkable) proximity to The Mall, the museums and the monuments, as well as its convenience in terms of safe and easy access to the Metro.
