Recently stayed at Hotel Rouge with my wife for a romantic night in DC. I booked online and got a great AAA rate for a King room. When booking I indicated that it was a Date-Night with my wife and wanted to do something special to surprise her. A week before our stay I received an email from the staff...

I was staying at the Rouge with two elderly relatives, and we had a problem with a rental car. The staff were uniformly helpful and friendly and seemed like they could not do enough for us. The location is very convenient for DC, and our rooms (king suites) were very spacious and comfortable--we had asked for one handicapped room and...

Not much to complain about. Check in was easy and staff was gracious enough to let us know that, though parking is forty-some dollars a night, on the weekends, you can park free on the street if you can find a space. We promptly turned the corner and parked maybe 100 feet away. If you do have to pay to...

Everything about this hotel is well-planned and accommodating. The rooms are large & comfortable, the location is very convenient to the attractions on and near the Mall as well as Georgetown, the staff could not be any more helpful, and the cost is very modest. We loved it and will certainly stay here again.

Our room and our friends' room were both spacious and comfortable with great beds. The hotel staff, from reception to restaurant to housekeeping, is very friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. We especially enjoyed the daily Happy Hour after returning from museums and walking the mall. We look forward to staying again at the Rouge on our next trip to DC.

Really great hotel - my teenagers loved it. The rooms were really large, and we were in an adjoining one as requested. The staff were so helpful, nothing was too much trouble, and it was in a great location - especially the eateries on P street

You may get to like the eccentric décor; perhaps not the rather slow elevator. Good location: 15-20 minute walk to the White House, just around the corner from a bus station and eateries/bars on P Street, 10+ minutes to the nearest metro station north of Dupont Circle. Very accommodating staff. Daily Happy Hour is a nice gesture. Decent, reasonably priced...

The hotel is in a ideal position for visiting the city only a 5min walk from the White House and 10 to 15minutes to the Museum area, the hotel room was clean on arrival and we found the area to be quiet, I would recomeend the hotel to others.

This hotel obviously takes pride in its seductive vibe, from the bright red walls to the leopard-print bath robes. My room was clean and spacious, but I was puzzled because there was a HUGE mirror in front of a door. It was too heavy to be moved, but somewhat strange. Also, the bathroom was a bit small. Other than that,...
