I travel to DC a few times a year as my daughter has gone to school there and now lives there. Years ago I found this small boutique hotel and it has become the only place in DC that I stay now. The hotel itself is quite unique in style with a staff and location that just can't be beat in wonderful city.
I've stayed at The Rouge, probably close to 10 times (this time for the 4th of July holiday) and each visit is as good, or better, than the last. Each room is a little different, in layout, size and decoration. Rooms are spacious, clean, well maintained and quiet. The bar and dinning room - though small - is comfortable and the staff outstanding. In fact, the entire hotel staff is as good as it gets. Friendly, knowledgeable of the area, always available - regardless of the time of day or night, and willing to help with any request or in anyway to make your stay as nice as it can be. I hope the Kimpton management realize how much the excellent staff adds to experience of your stay at this hotel. They deserve a lot of credit for making a stay here special.
The location is great! A block and half from DuPont circle (at the corner of 16th and Massachusetts NW at Scott's Circle) and a six block walk from the White House. Numerous bars and some of the best restaurants in DC are only blocks away. The surrounding neighborhood is one of the best in the city. I love getting up early in the morning and strolling through the residential neighborhoods close buy while I make my way to my favorite coffee shop where I can sit on the sidewalk and watch the city wake-up. Or, I can borrow a bicycle from the hotel and take a short morning ride before the city streets become too busy.
I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to DC. The cost is reasonable for quality hotel in the midst of the city with a location like this one has and you really need to experience it to really appreciate it. I've been so happy with this hotel each time I've been here, I can't see staying anywhere else when I visit DC.
