I really liked the Rouge. I used to live in DC and just about a block away from where the hotel is located so I knew what to expect from the neighborhood. The hotel is in a very good central location.
I was very pleasantly surprised with the hotel. Our room was pretty large and nicely kept. The hotel is pretty hip, but I enjoyed the decor. We loved the cheetah print carpets in the hall. The bed was huge and pretty comfy.
We had a problem with the TV cutting out all night, but that shouldn't be a problem for most - they have a satellite dish and the wind was literally blowing at about 40mph. I asked for a free movie rental and the desk didn't give me much trouble about the request.
I expect to stay at the Rouge again.
