"No A/C one day....95 degrees and humid in DC."
The rooms are huge and clean and cool/chic/mod/fun. They allow dogs and have a very liberal/great attitude about it. Nice staff, but understaffed-great parking privileges, right in the middle of everything...way better location than anyone else, nice bfast in the am....everything was perfect until the a/c died-and their excuse was that "the hotel was […] going to NOT HAVE A/C for the entire day" no apology, no refund....just...."enjoy the 96 degrees and suck it up".....which made all the good of the stay evaporate.

"Great location, fantastic staff, relaxing"
Had a great time, my late check in & check out were graciously dealt with, enjoyed the restaurant and the staff was always helpful. Location is perfect easy to walk to the White House & even Georgetown.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Modern hotel yet expensive for what you get."
Parking was $42 dollars plus a $8 parking tax. So $50 a night to park. Way to expensive!!! The air conditioner broke in the middle of the night and the entire hotel was so muggy. The facility guy said it was going to take 12 hours to fix. Thank god we were checking out that day. There were some nice features... pet friendly and free wine and beer reception […] from 5-6 daily. But again... this doesn't make up for the $50 a night parking added to the already pricey hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"I loved it!"
Hotel is in a good area. Rooms are spacious and nice. Parking fee is really steep at $42 vs other hotels I have stayed at but other than that O have no complaintsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A nice place -- but could have been better"
The hotel room was very clean and the staff was very accommodating. The negatives involve the air conditioning and general ventilation in the room. For such a hot and humid climate, the A/C is not designed well and there is no venting in the bathroom. To me, the menu in the restaurant was very limited and very expensive for what they offer. Instead, […] we went to the Holiday Inn around the corner for meals. The meals, service and prices there are much better with only a short walk away. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This was a great place to stay. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and the hotel is on a great location. I would recommend this hotel to anyoneGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I'm sure this was a nice place to stay 20 years ago but my room looked like I warped back to the 90's, or even 80's. The location was walking distance to a metro station and the White House. The staff was friendly and it was clean but I would choose someplace else next time.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice neighborhood."
We loved the location and felt it was such a nice neighborhood to come back to after a long day sightseeing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Amazing stay! Will definitely be back!"
Wow. To start, this hotel treated us very well and gave us a welcomed surprise. If you have a red car the first night of parking is free! I was under the impression it would be 50% off, but free?! Amazing. Thank you. It's a boutique hotel so embrace the funky decor, wear the animal print robes and take some selfie a in the HUGE mirror en suite. The […] front desk was very helpful with directions. Nicole, thank you so much for being so helpful during our stay! If you're in the area stay at this hotel. Friendly neighborhood, comfy beds, wonderful staff, what more can you ask for? Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to everything, Diffrent Expirience"
Mini bar has a bunch of interesting items. Also there are alot of complimentary items that were included in the hotel, they literally thought of everything. Furniture was diffrent very chic. Room was spacious, layout was a little weird but it was near everything we needed and it was a good expirience.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Always love the friendly staff"
Enjoy the kitchy-cool feel and this one is a close walk to all of DupontGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice hotel, Nice environment, Nice Staff"
We only stayed one night but the staff was very nice. When we checked in, they were serving complimentary wine and snacks. The rooms are very comfortable and equipped with a min bar. Great choice!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good location / Needs updating"
The hotel was definitely a middle of the road boutique hotel. It is an older hotel (European style) that, when first renovated, was probably chic. It is showing alot of signs of being tired and in need of a redo. It has the feeling of a 'make shift situation'.. meaning nothing is just right, everything has quirks... even the decor. The place to eat […] breakfast, just off the lobby, was about 15 degrees warmer than the lobby. I did not stay there for breakfast because of the immense hot air blowing into the room from the small kitchen or whatever. The day before we arrived, the second floor had a plumbing issue so there were blowers everywhere.... and my colleague had to sleep through the drone of fans. I know I sound negative; maybe I am rookie at DC hotels... I would stay here again in a pinch, but would not jump at the chance. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not a typical Kimpton"
I'm used to the Hotel Monaco and the service and rooms are amazing! Because it was so last minute, we had to book the Hotel Rouge. And it definitely didn't live up to the normal Kimpton standards I am used to, but it wasn't terrible. i'll be honest in saying the room was big and clean, but that was about as positive as I can get..Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"OK but not great for the cost"
A bit of an outdated modern style. Clean. Service was fair. Walls are paper-thin. View was horrible. No fan in the bathroom.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A+ for Cleanliness"
Hotel staff were extremely helpful in every way. We enjoyed the complimentary wine and appetizers every evening at 5:00. Location was good for walking to the Mall, White House, and other sites.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
very niveGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Good hotel. However, small miscellaneous as tooth paste were missing...the shampoing and conditionner are distributed in dribs and drabs. Could be better.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We LOVED staying here! We were attending a show at the 930 club and wanted to stay some where close enough for a cheap cab ride but not spend an insane amount of money on a hotel or stay somewhere stale or pretentious. Rouge fit the bill for us in all ways possible! The staff was very friendly, the hotel was very pretty and stylish. Our room was fantastic! […] We had an amazing king bed with a really cool red leather headboard, a retro mini fridge stocked with really interesting snacks and a huge bathroom. We had no complaints what so ever. We will stay at Rouge from now on when ever in D.C. :) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I loved the Rouge. Their service was great and they made sure that I was taken care of. The staff was amazing and understood that I needed an extra hand and on items on my business trip.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location and friendly staff"
This was my first time staying at any of the Kimptons Hotels. I was very sceptical because of the price I paid for it was like "too good to be truth", but to my surprise was a very nice one. When I arrived around 11am the employee at the front desk was super friendly. I got my room but I didn't like the view. I called the front desk to see if the could […] give me another room and the employee with no problem gave me a room with a better view and to my surprise, no extra charge. The location is super, at walking distiance to almost everywhere. I actually love the hotel and look foward to stay at The Rouge again!!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great DC trip to hunt for apts. Comfort & Lux"
Perfect experience. And great location to walk to DuPont circle.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent location to metro, restaurants, the Mall"
The staff at the Rouge is great! The location is quiet yet close to many good restaurants and the Metro. Downtown DC is just a walk away. Our room was spotless. A find if you do not have to be in the immediate downtown area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great hotel with classy funky decor. Walking distance to great restaurants. Love the wine hour at check in. Staff was very welcoming.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Rouge Hotel is Great"
I love my stay and my bedroom in Hotel Rouge. I was with my husband and 2 children and we enjoy a lot. It is near everything we need.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good service, needs improvement"
Service was friendly and accommodating. The hotel was nice, but needs a face-lift to it's artsy 90's style. But there was no parking at the hotel except for a (very) expensive valet service and parking nearby was very difficult.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Worth the visit"
That's a great hotel in a great location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, great decor, horrendous service"
The hotel's decor is great, and the overall physical condition is excellent. The room and lobby were very clean, and the hotel's toiletries are high quality. However, the hotel did not have the type of room available we paid for in advance, and were absolutely unapolagetic. Breakfast was also horrible, and the hotel's restaurant fare is overpriced. […] Overall, this hotel could be a great destinaton if staff were more hospitable. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice overnight stay"
Hotel was everything I look for in a hotel. Staff was nice, check-in was easy, room was nice, clean, and even spacious. A winner!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This place is a hidden gem. Everything was done well and the detail is incredible. The only issue was that there was no ability to control the room temperature. Other than that, the place rocked and I'd definitely stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Artistic Hotel on US Embassy Row"
Very interesting hotel--across from the Australian Embassy in Washington, D.C. On the outside are ten artistic, tasteful, and semi-nude statutes. The modern and post-modern artistic design inside is equally interesting. All in a hotel with very good amenities.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Parking is a problem"
We have stayed at other Kimpton hotels and I was expecting that level of a hotel experience. Unfortunately there are issues with this Kimpton property. First, there is no parking so if you drive to the hotel you will have to pay 39.95 per day plus tax for their valet service (that does not include tipping the valet) or you can risk/try street parking. […] Next, besides Lucas who works the bar the rest of the stay is rather abrupt like they do not like their job. I travel for business and/or pleasure 3 weeks a month and if it wasn't for Lucas I would not stay at another Kimpton property. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very pleasant staff, room was clean and restaurant was good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Large room. Bed and pillows were very comfortable. Safe in room-good. Very quiet. In room temperature control of hvac was excellent. We visit our son every Thanksgiving for 3-4 days and I have stayed in almost every hotel around Logan Circle, including one of yours, the Helix and this time I found the jewel ....the Rouge was definitely the best I've […] stayed in. We also enjoyed the upscale continental breakfast especially on Thanksgiving morning when very few restaurants are open. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Our son works in DC and we stayed in the Rouge over the Thanksgiving holiday--mostly for the location (near Dupont Circle). But we would up really liking the hotel much more than we thought we would. The rooms were spacious and the work area looked like a place where I could get a lot done, if I was so inclined (which I wasn't!). Very comfortable Aeron-type […] desk chair, tons of space, outlets within reach, and very good lighting. My wife also got a kick out of the leopard-spotted terry robes "on sale" for $90-- but stiff as boards from previous washings). The hotel bar also proved to be a nice place for a late glass of wine. Friendly, helpful staff was a plus too. We'd definitely stay there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I thought everyone was there was kind, helpful and friendly. The rooms were nice. Not into all the stock art on the walls, but... it's a hotel. The restaurant and bar were also very good. I wish they would stay open later. Like midnight or so? I don't understand why hotels close their bar and encourage guests to go out on the town when you're perfectly […] comfortable there. The rates were very reasonable and I feel I got more than I paid for. I come to DC often and have stayed at other Kimptons while in town. This is one that I'll certainly be back to and soon. Like.... Monday? Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Unique hotel, comfortable stay"
I like the color sceme of the hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The cordless phone in my room needed to be sanitized. It looked dirty. Overall, I like the environment of the hotel and I will book a room there on my next trip back to D.C.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Not what I expected"
Overall our stay was okay once we arrived to our room we tried flushing the toilet and realized that it was clogging up we called the front desk and they told us their "engineer" would not be able to fix the problem until the next morning. They told us they could not switch us to another room because they were sold out I am not sure if this was true […] but it was quite an inconvenience. Also when we arrived the elevator smelled like vomit. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good location : $7 taxi ride to everything!"
great service from Check-in to Bell Boy, bar service ..it was all friendly and very very good. Rooms were a nice size, had all the usual stuff and decor was upbeat and modern.

"Hotel Rouge - a Kimpton Hotel"
From the moment I entered the Rouge, I sensed that this would be a memorable experience. I was greeted by the hotel staff and quickly checked in. I then proceeded to my room, opened the door and could not believe what I saw! Vibrant red colors, modern decor eclectic designs....I had just found my favorite new boutique hotel. Moments later I was texting […] this same message to a good friend. I plan on making this my new go to hotel when I am in Washington, DC. The valet parking is great, the staff was amazing and the amenities in the room far and away the best I have encountered. Exactly how I would run and manage a hotel. Looking forward to my next business trip to DC now! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
