This hotel is located at very comfortable position in Washington DC. It is opposite to embassy of Australia. Logan centre, whole food farm, Walter convention centre and Dupont are near by. The hotel reception staffs are very courteous.The reception area is small. Wifi services are free.They give continental breakfast coupons if u ask for it. That is really amazing which...

Arrived at 11:30 at night with 2 young kids and a confirmed, paid reservation only for them to tell they were over sold. I asked if they can help me find another kimpton and they told me they were all sold out. I got on my phone and there was a kimpton next door with a room, so obviously he...

Sharon, we are extremely sorry about what happened when you arrived at the Rouge. These type of mistake are not commonplace here, and I can promise you that our team did intend to inconvenience you to that extent. I know we corresponded over email briefly, and I am glad to hear that our sister hotel was able to accommodate you....

This was supposed to be my 10th stop on my Kimpton Journey but shortly after checking in I had to check out due to a family emergency. The couple of hours I spent at the property were enjoyable, I had a massive room with plenty of space to feel at home. The hotel bar is very basic, but for just...

Although it's a Kimpton property, it doesn't feel like one. The decor is relatively cheap, the food is mediocre, and the service staff is just okay. Bathtub wouldn't drain, wallpaper was peeling, poor paint job...I've been a loyal Kimpton customer for years, but will not go back to the Rouge.

Hi Kortney, Thank you for your loyalty to Kimpton Hotels! I am glad that you came to visit us at the Rouge. I am sorry that you we missed the opportunity to "wow" you with our service and decor. However, I hope that we are able to change that perception during your next trip to DC. Please, do not hesitate...

I've stayed at many, many Kimpton properties, including the Kimpton Carlyle in DC (which is fabulous). This hotel is an embarrassment. Cheap furniture, popcorn ceilings, and an extremely poor job with the details (e.g., door knobs missing screws, wallpaper peeling, rusted door hinges, crooked light switch, adhesive strips laying around). Never staying with Kimpton again and am recommending to my...

Whoa! It looks like we sorta missed the mark here. We are so sorry to hear about your experience during your time here at the Rouge. The Rouge is one of the first Kimpton hotels established in the DC several years ago. Although we take pride in our legacy, we also understand the importance of staying relevant and modern. So,...

It was our first time staying at a Kimpton Hotel and I was disappointed. It seemed a bit tired and done on a very tight budget 15 years ago. It's a nice location and the staff were pretty nice, but nothing felt gracious about it, from the decor to the bathroom amenities, to the chips in the bathroom cabinets to...

We really enjoyed our stay. The red decor is funky, dramatic and fun. Our rooms were huge and the staff was very friendly. We got a great deal on rooms in the "Black Friday Sale" and they also gave us free parking because we arrived in a red car. :) The hotel is in a convenient location near Dupont Circle...

I've stayed at the Rouge many times over recent years and it's still got a hip feel. It's in a great location, just a few blocks from Dupont Circle. The hotel has a happy hour with free wine. The rooms are large but lack amenities like a coffee maker. They also no longer have a minibar / snack bar in...

Stayed just one night. The red decor is certainly unique. The hallways and lobby are a bit worn, but the guest room was huge and bright. I did not use the fitness "center", but colleagues reported it was cramped. I had plenty of exercise because the hotel is blocks from the DuPont Metro and blocks from restaurants. So was able...

Thank you for choosing to stay with us! I also think the Rouge has a very convenient location. We are looking forward modernizing our lobby, fitness center and public spaces during our upcoming renovation/refresh. Hopefully during your next trip to D.C you will be able to join us for happy hour.

The staff were all very helpful and friendly. The location is excellent. The rooms are stylish and look nice, though the hallways are a little dingy. The main issue was that there was a nasty empty "saline enema" bottle in the hairdryer bag. Why. Why would they not check in this when cleaning, and why would anyone put that in...
