The reception desk was fabulous but it went down hill from there. There were no extra blankets in the room and it was very cold with a draft from the big windows. we were told that we had a complimentary breakfast and then when we went to breakfast, The woman "guarding" the food embarrassed me and made it clear we...

I booked a week vacation stay at the Kimpton Rouge through a website that did not allow any modifications. To my dismay, this also meant they would not allow an upgrade in rooms. I called the Kimpton Rouge Hotel, and asked for the manager and was lucky enough to get Manager William Stapleton. He patiently let me explain my dilemma...

This hotel is my first preference to stay. I visit D.C. once a week and usually stay at the Rouge. The rooms are comfortable regardless of which size room and the staff is awesome! I would highly recommend this hotel for your stay whether personal or business. Happy Hour is a big plus!

Another great stay at Hotel Rouge. Last time was maybe 4 years ago and I have to stay it's just as charming. Yeah everything is red, there are animal print robes in the closet, and some may say it's retro in a bad way, but I welcome the quirkiness. The floor to ceiling mirror is always an added bonus to...

We got a delux king room here. Walking distance to the White House and we only had 24 hours in Washington so location was everything. The staff were sooo nice! The bed however was horrendous. As I rolled over (I'm 5 foot tall and weight 50kg) my partner felt every single wriggle and it woke him up and vice versa....

We just had two rooms here for 7 nights. It was perfect for us as we got a king suite with a sofa/sitting area adjoining a room with 2 queen beds which worked perfectly for my husband and myself and our two college age daughters. We requested a refrigerator to put some medication in (their mini fridge is stocked) and...

Great location and fun and funky hotel. You have to be ok with funky, it isn't upscale luxury but still quite nice. And it is red, all over. But I stayed there for a long weekend and really enjoyed it.

Small rooms, VERY uncomfortable bed and not clean! No continental breakfast, the free coffee and hot chocolate were weak :-/ Thankfully the hotel is located within walking distance (1-2 blocks) to a whole foods.

Me and my wife stayed here for only 2 days but it was worth it. The hotel is really nice and the decorations, most of them being red made it really pleasing and different from any other hotel I've been. The first night of valet parking is free for a red vehicle which is pretty awesome. They are also pet...

First, the hotel tried to charge me a $23 resort fee upon check-in. I had to show them my prepaid reservation thru Hotel Tonight which showed that there was no resort fee stated during booking. They upgraded me to a larger room. Whereas the decor may have been retro at one point now it just looked outdated. The couch was...
