Fiirst time at a Kimpton Hotel, but really impressed with boutique feel, reasonable prices, very large rooms (converted from apartments) in a very good location. We walked trough the entire city and were never too far away. Easy walk to Dupont Circle for restarants & metro and near many isntitution offices, embassies, Johns Hopkins school.

I was a little nervous booking the Hotel Rouge for our family. Even though the room had bunk beds, the hotel itself seemed a little too "cool" to be appropriate for us - two 40-somethings, one 75 year old mother in law and one 5 year old boy. We were all pleased to discover that this hotel fit us perfectly!...

We stayed for 4 nights at the Rouge which is up 16th St. in DC, about 6 blocks from the White House. If you are planning a sightseeing trip, this hotel is not central to the Mall, but we found it easy to walk about 3 blocks down to the Farragut North Metro and get anywhere from there. It's a...

We had a rather poor experience at Rouge when it came to service. When we arrived, I asked the "concierge" - there actually is no official concierge, just the front desk clerk - if he could recommend and book us on a DC Night tour. He pulled out a flyer but did nothing with it, not even recommend a particular...

I was very pleased with this hotel for 6 nights. The price was fair, especially considering the desirable location, close to restaurants and shopping, between downtown and Dupont Circle.

This hotel gets good marks all around in comparison to other hotels in the same class we've stayed at.
