I prefer boutique hotels. But when I travel for business, I stick with basic. I LUCKED OUT on my business trip to DC. I was delighted with the ecclectic and RED luxury of this Kimpton property. The 1940's Hollywood theme was fun. The staff was exceptionally friendly and warm, accommodating and flexible. That was good because I was traveling with...

Kimpton Rouge Hotel, has a customer's needs in mind from the time you walk in. Lobby is very beautiful, with a warm welcome from the staff. After checking in, which took a few minutes by the way, I moved to my room. I was impressed with what I saw. There was detail to everything from the bed, lighting, working space...

Stayed here for one night to attend a meeting. My hotel room was large and was tastefully decorated! Wish I had time to stay an extra night because the rate was very reasonable for DC. The hotel is in a great location, in walking distance to the metro and to great restaurants. Forgot to mention that all the staff I...

This hotel is styled like a old 70s film throwback. Bright red walls. Small reception. Little amenities. The staff are friendly. The breakfast is expensive and poor. The fitness centre is in the basement and it's not great. The bar closes early. It's in a good location but no more than a very basic 3 star. Expect road noise. It...

As with most Kimpton brands, the Rouge is unusually hip and cool. Looking beyond that,the pluses are customer service from the front desk to the bar, the room size was enormous, the desk lighting was bright enough to use for work, the free wine hour and the silence at night.the downsides are breakfast with virtually no dietary restriction considerations (no...

This was our first time at the Rouge. It is not "new" but has a great feel to it. The rooms are as depicted in the photo and we were very comfortable. The staff was very knowledgeable about the area and made great recommendations about where to eat, how to get around and the best times to do specific activites....

From Check in to check out everything was perfect. The staff at the Rouge really made it our stay wonderful. Tiara and Damian went out of their way to make our trip special. We were there for our son's wedding for four nights. The location was perfect for dining out and sight seeing. All within walking distance. We were sad...

First time at the Rouge. Great location, big room! Staff is very friendly, especially Tiara. Problem with 'bad keys,' but everyone is very helpful. Currently enjoying my complimentary wine-what could be better?

Stayed here for 4 nights and had a great stay. We had a huge room on the top floor which had ample space for bags and had the most comfortable bed! There was a well stocked mini bar, big wardrobe, and a safe. The staff were so friendly and helpful. It was about 15/20 minutes walking to the White House...
