“Great Location”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

I booked a room for 1 night, primarily because of price and location and the knowledge that Kimpton Hotels are usually trustworthy. Since it is referred to as a boutique hotel, I expected a tiny room. I was very pleasantly surprised in that both the room and bath were a very good size and well equipped. Staff were, without exception, friendly and efficient and the restaurant (Bistro Bis) was excellent.
It's about a 10 minute walk from the Capitol and the east building of the National Gallery and a few minutes more to the west building and the U.S. Botanical Garden, as well as the Smithsonian. My wife an I decided that this would become our usual hotel when we are visiting the Mall area.

Room Tip: It probably helps to join Kimptons In Touch program.

I stayed with a friend for three nights. The staff were very welcoming on arrival and we checked in with no fuss. Our room was clean, the beds comfy. On our second night, a little dog was barking and made sleep a little difficult. When we reported this the staff acted quickly and with good grace. We were provided with a lovely bottle of wine and breakfast at the hotel. In addition we were offered a move to another room.

The breakfast was just wonderful, we had French toast, berries and eggs florentine. The waiter was professional and had a good knowledge of his city and were we should visit.

Overall, our stay was very pleasant and the hotel is located near Capitol Hill. A bonus and not far to walk (about a 5 mile round trip) to all the other attractions. Wear good walking shoes.

The car parking was a little expensive at around $45 dollars a day.....my only gripe.

We reserved this hotel thru Hotwire.We only stayed 1 nite, as we were returing from the OBX to PGH, and wanted to break the trip up a bit. Great location.Comfortable spacious room with many amenities. Parking/valet a little expensive, so we chose (at the suggestion of the desk clerk) to park in the garage across the street.As it turns out however, that was not exactly inexpensice either.Would definitely return.

Thanks for taking the time to write about us, Cnjl. DC parking is one of the most expensive on the map, but I'm glad our front desk helped you out a bit. Hope to see you again soon.

Stayed for 4 nights with my wife & 2 teenage sons, in comfortable room on 8th floor. Took advantage of the nightly wine hour, both sangria and wine very good. Location is excellent, within walking distance to all tourist sights and union station. Would definitely recommend for a short visit to DC.

Leave it to the Hotel George to think of a fun way to advertise their property. This reduced rate offer came with a complimentary bottle of red wine upon check in. Although this is not always featured, it may benefit you to book directly with the hotel or at least consult their website.

We really enjoyed our first stay and the enthusiasm of their team. While we were away from the hotel for most of the day, upon our return each evening the welcome was heartfelt and authentic.
Our room was bright and clean, our bed was made with crisp sheets and soft pillows and the towels were plump and soft. Loved raiding the minibar as a Kimpton InTouch member and the wi-fi and desk made working from the room a breeze.
Bikes are available upon request and you only have to ask for a goldfish, as well.

My boyfriend is getting deployed and we booked this hotel last minute to say goodbye for a year.
We had a wonderful stay, the staff was more than generous with us and really made the experience even better.
They had great suggestions for going out, were happy to talk to us even late at night and helpful overall.
The room was spotless and welcoming.
I highly recommend this great hotel, had been to another kimpton hotel before and loved it there too. Great location when coming in from union station.
Have nothing but kind words to say about hotel george. Will definitely be coming back here the next time we are in DC.

The Metro (Union Station) is less than a block away AND you are just a short walk to Capitol Hill! There is a great little bakery on the corner of this block that serves AMAZING treats too! If you don't like dogs...this may not be the best venue for you. I personally loved getting up in the morning and walking down to the lobby to be welcomed by a friendly pooch. It made it seem a little more like home to me. The wine tastings each day were a nice touch too. They serve non-alcoholic beverages for the kids too. My only issue during my entire stay is that housekeeping forgot to clean my room one day. When I resturned after a long day, it was in the same state I left it in. A quick call to the front desk took care of the issue in short order. They were knocking on my door within five minutes. The entire place seemed very family friendly. I selected the hotel because of the close proximity to the Hill and the Metro. Was very pleased overall!

Room Tip: My room didn't have a great view. It actually looked directly at an office building with people...

Green Features: Just like the other hotels in this chain, they are very environmentally -friendly. Kudos on that front too.
