Booked 2 rooms for a girls weekend. Very spacious rooms, super comfortable beds, and very clean. Located in an excellent neighborhood -- plenty of great restaurants and sightseeing nearby. The hotel provides nice little extras like a complimentary wine hour and a "cold pizza breakfast." The only teeny negative is that the bathrooms are slightly dated (though spacious and clean) and the shower water pressure is low. But all in all, a great quality hotel with friendly service and reasonable pricing.

The absolute coolest hotel I've ever stayed in. Trendy and chic, but not garish or over the top. Just very very cool. Huge rooms, comfortable beds and quirky in all the right ways (fun colors, funky decor, wax lips in the mini bar, surprising celebrity photos in the hall). I also loved the Noon checkout time. This place made me feel like a rockstar and I will totally go back to it or another Kimpton Hotel when I get the chance!

Good hotel conveniently located around a 15 minute walk from the White House and local DuPont amenities. Stayed here for a week in June 2013 and found it to be comfortable and clean with few downsides. The staff are excellent and I had no issues whatsoever with service. It may not have the amenities of some larger hotels and the WiFi was a little dodgy (but free...) but it is a boutique style hotel so all in all I would recommend for any travellers visiting the area, either for business or pleasure. Another Kimpton success.

Room Tip: Avoid the front as there is a lot of traffic

Visited the Rouge Hotel in Washington, DC in September 2013. Decor unique and elegant, hotel spotless and inviting. Room was clean, comfortable and spacious. Could not have asked for a nicer staff, all the way from the front desk to the Valet! Food is restaurant was excellent and the service likewise. You have the option of vouchers for breakfast or wine hour. Would highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed for 3 nights on our first ever visit to DC.

The location is great, not too far a walk from the Metro and great restaurants.

The hotel itself is smaller than we expected but great boutique feel. You can tell it is an older building that has been converted but we liked that. All but 1 person at the hotel were extremely nice - the one that was not so much was just cold and unsmiling.

Only downside of the room at the back of the hotel was the garbage pickup early morning.

Food at the hotel was too expensive and we ended up walking up to P street and found lots there. We loved Commissary on P street. Matchbox on 14th street was also great. We tried Ted's Bulletin - also on 14th - but were disappointed with the food. Atmosphere was great though.
No coffee maker in the room but coffee available in the lobby in the morning and also a wine/sangria reception at night which was great.

The absolute best part of the hotel was the bunk bed room. We travel a few times a year as a family and this was - according to our daughter - the best room ever! Separate nook with bunk beds, TV and game console. We also had a fish lent to us for our stay.

We will definitely be going back.

Room Tip: Get the bunk bed room with kids.

My husband and I spend Labour Day weekend in DC and stayed at Rouge. The hotel, like each of the Kimpton properties we've visited, is unique and quirky, with personality and great service.
We arrived early in the morning and our room wasn't ready, so the Front desk stored our bags, and gave us vouchers for breakfast. As Kimpton loyalty members, we also got vouchers for cocktails, raid the mini-bar and other treats.
Our room was a delightful surprise - very large, well appointed and spotless. The decor was funky with bright splashes of red - rouge- in the artwork. The bed was delightfully comfortable, and the toiletries were good quality.
The nightly wine reception was a great cocktail hour before dinner; the restaurant on site has a nice menu of small plates. We had the continental breakfast each morning, a selection of fresh fruit, yogurts, breads pastries and bagels. The coffee was exceptional.
Rouge was quiet, convenient, well appointed and comfortable. I would stay here again, and recommend this hotel.

My wife and I stayed at Rouge over the Labor Day weekend and we really enjoyed our stay. Our room (7th floor) was huge and included a separate dining area, which we didn't use. Bed was very comfortable. Bathroom was fairly small but functional and with good water pressure. Overall, our room was very well appointed, clean, and comfortable.

Breakfast was included in my rate and for a continental breakfast it was very good (eggs, oatmeal, bagels, toast, jam, fresh fruit salad, juice, and coffee). Wine reception is always welcome. Staff and service were very good. Internet was free for InTouch members, which I am.

The only downside for me was location - it's a 10-15 min walk to Dupont Circle station or Farragut North, but that wasn't a big deal anyway.
