Stayed at the Rouge for four nights this past weekend. Hotel location is excellent and the property was nice, but was missing some of the amenities that some of the other Kimpton properties have such as a pool. The hotel has two elevators and one of the two was out the entire time we were there, which made for a long wait at different times of the day.
Our room was a double queen room on the 9th floor with views of the back of the property. Room was very quiet and the sleeping area was a good size. The bathroom on the other hand was extremely small. There were a few issues in the room that needed attention. First the bathroom door did not close all the way and would just swing open. All the beverages in the mini bar were way past expired and even after I informed the desk the items were never removed. There is a thermostat in the room to control the air conditioning, but we felt that the room was very warm. After asking the maintenance dept. to check on it we were informed that the actual coolest temp that the room could reach was controlled by the hotel. So in other words you could try and set it to below 70, but it would never reach the desired temp. The maintenance worker was able to punch in a code to over ride the system and allow the room to get cooler.
The morning coffee service was nice, but the lack of servicing the area was a bit frustrating. At any giving time they would be out of hot water or coffee. If you are interested in the continental breakfast offered in the lounge/ restaurant area you better be willing to pay 15 bucks for very a very less than average spread.
If you do not have a discounted rate this property is not worth the full rack rate. I would stay again with a discounted rate, just because of the location.
