“Another good Kimpton hotel...”
Reviewed October 5, 2013 via mobile

This is a good hotel only a couple of blocks from Capitol Hill. The staff were friendly from the start to the end of my stay. They were informative and helpful with any questions I had. The room was nicely laid out and I had no issues with it.
NB: Joining their loyalty program gets you free wi-fi in the hotel.

I stayed for a few days there and I found it a really nice and comfortable place to stay. Nice service, good location, excellent rooms. I went there with my school friends and all of us had quite a good time in there. Breakfast is the typical American one, which I am not a fan of it.

You know the saying "Location. Location. Location. This hotel is spot on for convenience to Union Station, Capitol Buildings, National Mall and museums. etc. But so are other hotels. What makes the Hotel George different and better (and not at $400 per night, which we cannot afford)...service. Thus my title. I must admit our family loves Kimpton Hotels, so we are accustomed to better service than other hotel chains. Hotel George is the best Kimpton so far. Work brought us frequently to DC for over 25 years. We now have a child in grad school at American University so we find ourselves once again DC bound. I say this to let you know we have years and years of experience with DC hotels. We have returned to several hotels but never have we really, really wanted to return. We stayed at another Kimpton in DC and did not have the same service. There is something special about the entire Hotel George staff - from arrival to departure - their goal is to make you comfortable. The front desk may be the best I have encountered. You can tell they strive and train for excellent service. Michael Love (assistant front manager) made us feel so welcome that after 3 nights we did not want to leave. We are returning for Thanksgiving for 4 nights and are looking forward to the fabulous staff and great location of the Hotel George. We love the pet policy, shower and tub, lemon water in lobby and daily wine reception (yes, yes, yes). We were told about the room renovations beginning in November and look forward to updated rooms. Several restaurants around. A nice bakery (with all types of food and coffee) located just next door. You won't regret staying at the Hotel George.

My husband and I were in Washington DC for his college reunion. It seemed like everyone else booked rooms at the near by Hyatt which was quite pricey. I came across the Hotel George on trip advisor and found the price to be every reasonable. I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The staff was very nice and accommodating. The room was a little small but very clean and comfortable. Johnny greeted us at the front desk and made us feel at home. He invited us to the lobby for wine from 5-6pm each evening. (one complimentary glass per day) He also gave us a coupon for $10 to use towards the mini-bar.

Our air conditioner did not work when we got to the room. Maintenance came within 5 minutes and fixed it. The problem occurred again later that evening and maintenance was already gone for the night. The front desk sent up a fan, which helped. The hotel windows also opened so it wasn't so bad. The manager removed the charge for parking due to the inconvenience. (parking is $45 per day) It was nice to save the $90!

Although we did not eat at the restaurant there, it smelt wonderful. I also saw some guests renting bicycles from the hotel. Hopefully, next time we visit we will have more time to sightsee. The "mall" and the Capitol were located right around the corner. This hotel was extremely convenient to the Metro station. Just a short walk.

Other than the little hiccup with the air conditioning, our stay was great and I would stay there again.

Very well located, close to Union station. Comfortable room, well serviced and excellent room service from the adjoining restaurant. It is small so not overly busy. Wine tasting hour is great! Overall this hotel is highly recommended.

We had a very good experience here during our weekend stay.The staff was very helpful and friendly in answering any questions we had. The bed was very comfortable and they even surprised us with a plate of tasty cookies with Happy Anniversary written on it in our room upon arrival. We book directly with their web site and received a great deal with a bottle of wine included. The big plus was being with in a block of the capital and a few more for all the other sights.The one negative for us was the way the bed was positioned with the air-condition blowing right on us.

I have stayed at the Hotel George several times over the years (before it was taken over by the Kimpton Chain and afterwards) and I think it needs some attention. While the staff there are very accommodating the rooms and hallways need to be updated. I visited the gym and was surprised by its poor condition and upkeep. Kimpton persists in offering substandard Wolfgang Puck coffee in their rooms along with powdered creamer as well as bath products that are substandard. The best thing about this property is Bistro Bis.

General Manager, Christopher Cannon: Well at least the staff was good, jrcw75th! The even better news is that we recognize the same flaws you do, and our looking forward to a full renovation this fall, including Keurigs in all the room. I hope you'll think about visiting again so we can give your review a renovation as well.
