Had a great experience at Hotel Rouge. Front desk staff was friendly and super helpful guiding me around the area. And my room was huge and well appointed. The best part was I checked in during happy hour - couldn't have been welcomed any better! I will definitely stay here again next trip to DC!

Very good hotel on walking distance from the Mall (10 minutes) and Dupont Circle.
Very friendly staff who will do anything to make you feel welcome.
Big, comfortable and clean rooms.
The ambiance in the restaurant is very special. Great food.
The manager of the restaurant, Mr. Raimey Juragan, is a very kind person who makes you feel yourself at home immediately.
Once you have been there, you want to come back!

I stayed here on the recommendation of a local friend and am very glad I did. Tastefully decorated from the white statuettes outside the building to the red motifs and room art. The lobby is welcoming and cozy, and teems with people having a good time during wine happy hour. The staff was immediately welcoming and accommodating. My stay was brief but I was able to take advantage of some of my Kimpton membership benefits like raiding the fridge and free wifi. I made my reservation on the hotel website, and they were able to offer me an upgraded room on a high floor with late check-out. And perhaps because of that last perk, notably absent was housekeeping's knock on the door, which I appreciate. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: If you're sensitive to noise, request a room far away from the elevator shaft.

Needed to find a safe, comfortable overnight spot on short notice. Enjoy the Kimpton line & was happy to locate a room at a very reasonable Hotels Tonight rate. Very cool design, welcoming staff, convenient dining. If

This hotel is such that I wish tripadvisor had a rating between average and very good. It's better than average but not very good.

I'm a big Kimpton fan and have stayed at their hotels all over the country. This one is average at best.

The "red" theme is unappealing to me. The lobby is inadequate. The staff is nice but could use additional support. The rooms are tired and feel a bit worn. The bathroom is tiny.

No offense to those who hold the fort here, but you'll do better elsewhere.

Dear Sandy K. Thank you for your feedback and for being a Kimpton Fan! I am sorry that we did not WOW you during your visit and I hope that you will return after we finish our renovation in the guest corridors and elevators! If our décor isn’t your thing, we have plenty of Kimpton Hotels in the DC area to choose from and that may be a better fit for you.
