Overall this was a great hotel. The decor is very cool, the rooms are very quiet and clean, the staff was super friendly and accomodating. We enjoyed the complimentary wine from 5-6pm. The location is about a 20 min. walk to the White House, and the neighborhood is lovely, with restaurants within a short walk. The room was large, with...

Dear Illa99. Thank you for recommending the Rouge to your friends and colleagues. I am so glad that you enjoyed our large rooms and great location! I am sorry about the misinformation about the breakfast and poor internet service. We are scheduled for an upgrade this month so that internet is much faster! We look forward to welcoming you back!

This was a great hotel for our older-couple needs. Very spacious and comfortable, excellent staff, lovely breakfast, quiet and dark room at night, and a good walk to downtown, museums etc. Highly recommended.

Cute boutique hotel with large, comfortable rooms. I didn't find the design and overall vibe of the hotel quite as great as some other Kimpton hotels, but it's still very nice. The service was on par with the excellent service I have found with other hotels of this brand. Everyone was incredibly friendly and helpful-- nothing was a problem or...

Booked 2 rooms for a girls weekend. Very spacious rooms, super comfortable beds, and very clean. Located in an excellent neighborhood -- plenty of great restaurants and sightseeing nearby. The hotel provides nice little extras like a complimentary wine hour and a "cold pizza breakfast." The only teeny negative is that the bathrooms are slightly dated (though spacious and clean)...

The absolute coolest hotel I've ever stayed in. Trendy and chic, but not garish or over the top. Just very very cool. Huge rooms, comfortable beds and quirky in all the right ways (fun colors, funky decor, wax lips in the mini bar, surprising celebrity photos in the hall). I also loved the Noon checkout time. This place made me...

Good hotel conveniently located around a 15 minute walk from the White House and local DuPont amenities. Stayed here for a week in June 2013 and found it to be comfortable and clean with few downsides. The staff are excellent and I had no issues whatsoever with service. It may not have the amenities of some larger hotels and the...

We stayed for 3 nights on our first ever visit to DC. The location is great, not too far a walk from the Metro and great restaurants. The hotel itself is smaller than we expected but great boutique feel. You can tell it is an older building that has been converted but we liked that. All but 1 person at...

My husband and I spend Labour Day weekend in DC and stayed at Rouge. The hotel, like each of the Kimpton properties we've visited, is unique and quirky, with personality and great service. We arrived early in the morning and our room wasn't ready, so the Front desk stored our bags, and gave us vouchers for breakfast. As Kimpton loyalty...

My wife and I stayed at Rouge over the Labor Day weekend and we really enjoyed our stay. Our room (7th floor) was huge and included a separate dining area, which we didn't use.
