“Beware”
Reviewed March 30, 2014 via mobile

The hotel experience was great until I got a bill for $500 to replace the carpet because there were cigarette burns supposedly caused by us. There weren't any cigarette burns when we left and we sure as heck weren't smoking in in the room. This hotel is dishonest. Watch your back or you'll be footing the bill for their remodel.

Rob P -

Thank you for staying with us at The George, a Kimpton Hotel.

After reading your comments, I looked in our system and we have not charged a smoking, carpet replacement, or deep cleaning fee after the renovation. Can you send me your information and I would be happy to look into it further as there seems to be a mistake.

Thanks,
Clayton (clayton.smith@hotelgeorge.com)

What an amazing hotel! I was in town for a conference and the George hotel was the best part of my trip. The staff was knowledgeable and super hospitable. If every conference u attended was in DC I would be extremely fortunate. Did I mention there is a free wine happy hour from 5 - 6 PM every night? The rooms are amazing and the location is adjacent to Union Station. Overall I had an amazing experience and I look forward to staying at the George hotel when I visit DC in the future.

It's because of the most amazing guests, ajdop! We are looking forward to having you back as well, but if your travel does take you elsewhere look for our sisters. They probably aren't quite as awesome as we are, but the whole Kimpton family celebrates that wonderful wine hour.

Cheers!

I am generally a fan of Kimpton properties. I find them chic, interesting and usually nicely appointed - Hotel George is a fine example.

Recently rennovated that hotel is clean and crisp. Love the George theme everywhere. It's very clever.

My room was large by Washington DC standards. Bed was very comfortable - bathroom large, clean and good amenities. Good lighting and a make-up mirror. Coffee maker in the room. Staff were friendly and my early check in was as requested.

I love that Kimpton gives members of their club free wi-fi and a $10 coupon for the mini bar. It's the little things that make endless business travel better and I really appreciate both of these.

This is a great place to stay. Not is it only a block from Union Station and close to the major attractions, the staff is just fabulous. They couldn't do enough for me.
I arrived late, about 10:30 PM and both Blair and Katherine were just as friendly and warm as they could be. They offered me a glass of wine and told me that a bottle was waiting in my room. (Although it wasn't there, it was delivered the next day.) As a Klimpton member, I reveived free internet and they were nice enough to give me a breakfast credit to the Bistro Bis where breakfast is served.
My room was quite large with a high def. television, a couch, and lots of space. The room was bright and clean.
There is a free wine tasting every day from 5 to 6 with the manager (who was extremely friendly) pouring. I was surprised by the quality of the wine. As someone who drinks wine every day, it was quite good.
I struck up several conversations with the manager as I told him how pleased I was with the hotel. He told me that they try to impower the staff to say "yes" as much as possible. They certainly do that!
I'll definately stay here on my next trip to Washinbgton.

I stayed 2 nights with a large group of friends for the Rock N Roll Marathon. We arrived early and the staff was extremely helpful securing our gear and getting us directions and transport options to the Expo. The rooms were clean, comfortable and relaxing. The location was perfect for transportation and running along the Mall. Our group already to be back here next year.

We have stayed several times at Hotel George, once for a week with our dog when we had moved out of our house on Capitol Hill and were moving to Budapest, and once for six weeks when we had temporarily returned home before moving to Saudi Arabia. Both experiences were outstanding, and we would never consider staying anywhere else in Washington other than our own home because Hotel George has become our second home in the city. The rooms are excellent, the staff is friendly and helpful, the location near Union Station is convenient and the attached restaurant is superb. I simply can't recommend this hotel highly enough. Even our dog loved it -- it's a long story, but she escaped from our yard when workmen were at our house and ran 15 blocks on streets she didn't know and chased by a police car straight to Hotel George (looking for me), where she walked in the front door and got on an elevator. She was found by hotel staff in front of our room, but on the wrong floor. I can't think of a higher recommendation that that!

Room Tip: We have stayed in several rooms at the hotel, and all were excellent. I believe the rooms fronting E...
