"Great location and reasonably priced for DC"
Hotel is right in the heart of the city. You are walking distance to the metro and various cool neighborhoods and even the mall/white house area. This is not a super fancy place, but it is quite nice - and because of how central the location is, when compared to other hotel options, it is a decent price. Rooms are quite large, and clean. I really […] appreciated the ample desk space for my laptop and the surge protector plug. How many times are you searching for plugs all over the hotel room to try to charge your phone and laptop, and whatever else you might have? I was able to charge everything at once, in one spot, and could have charged even more stuff. Surprised more hotels don't have one in every room - it's perfect. You will have to pay a "hotel fee" - which gives you access to wifi - and is not optional. It costs an extra $15 plus tax to your room rate. So don't be surprised. There is a restaurant - but I did not eat there. They also have a free shuttle service between 7am-9am within a mile of the hotel - another nice perk. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"My favorite hotel in DC"
This is my favorite hotel in DC. Great neighborhood ... Easy to walk places ... Great restaurants nearby. Rooms are excellent .. Design and layout in my top 5 hotels of all times. Rooms are comfy and clean ... And hotel staff is attentive, polite, and all around wonderful. Plus there's a wine reception every afternoon!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"fun, stylish hotel in a good location"
friendly service, loved the style of the hotel, overall a great stay! we got a good last-minute deal, too, which is always a plus!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Stay at any other near by name brand hotel"
This Hotel really fell short of our expectations. The photos make it look really nice but in actuality it's pretty shabby. The first room we checked into looked like it had been rode hard and put away wet. We asked for a new room but apparently the hotel was over booked. Fortunately, they had one other option which was better but faced the backside […] of the building. The second room didn't look so used and was much cleaner but viewed a parking lot. I preferred the bad view to the haggard dirty room. This hotel seems to be an old apartment building but not in the cute historic way that has been converted in to a hotel. it looks like Kimpton did a cheap renovation an threw in some modern decor but it wasn't enough to get this situation together. The one saving grace for this hotel is the service is very excellent and the employees seem to be dealing with a lot of under-satisfied guests, yet are still EXTREMELY nice and accommodating.

"Swanky new hotel,city center,reasonable. Thumbs up"
Great hotel at a great price. New and clean. A couple little hiccups with service (room service brought dinner sans wine, saying they were out of it, a phone call to the room would have been faster). there's a $17 'resort' fee, and they charge $5 for delivery for room service, plus you leave a tip on top of that! Otherwise, it was a fantastic stay. […] Huge, quiet room, clean, good location close to everything, fun, swanky decor and hip clientele. Would easily stay again.

"Never Disappointed in a Kimpton Hotel Stay"
Hotel Rouge is a hidden gem. Never disappoints when I visit DC for business or pleasure. The staff is fantastic and I have a hard time leaving that ultra comfy bed every day. Only teeny frown is that they charge for wifi in your room....but the front desk agent tells me if I join the rewards program I will get free wifi when I stay. I'm off to investigate […] that option. Can't wait to return to The Hotel Rouge!!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Cold Pizza at the Rouge"
We booked a block of rooms for my girl friends birthday celebration. If you have never stayed in a kimpton Hotel, you need to. The Rouge lives up to the Kimpton name and then some. From the modern decor and amazing service to the little things they add like a complimentary happy hour and cold pizza and bloody marys on the weekends. Im series.. they […] have cold pizza and free bloody marys for guests. This may sound odd to some, but after a late night of birthday celebration ruckus, that little offering made our stay.

Response by Hotel Rouge, a Kimpton Hotel Hi Robert! Thank you so much for sharing your experience! We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed the "little things" as well as the service provided by our team! Don't worry- the next time you're in town for a weekend of celebrations, we'll have the pizza and bloody mary's on hand to help you recover!
First time stay here, no complaints! Rooms are extremely affordable, clean, and spacious for the location, staff was friendly and helpful with cab to the airport. We didn't eat at the hotel so I can't speak to food quality, but the free Earl Grey tea was spot on! Would definitely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"great place to stay"
Pets are free to stay and if you have a hybrid vehicle, parking is 50% off.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Rouge, a Kimpton Hotel Hi Mark, we are so pleased that you enjoyed your visit and found a great value in our hybrid parking discount. We look forward to welcoming you back.
Staff was okay and there were not very amenities worth the cost of this hotel. Truthfully I would rather have stayed at a best western. To add, the last night the floor smelled like weed and had a horrid scent. I was very happy to leave that day.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Rouge, a Kimpton Hotel Oh no! We are not used to hearing that our staff was just OK and I am sorry that your experience was not excellent. We are a 100% non smoking hotel and charge a pretty steep fee for it. I hope that if you reported, we were able to contact the guest to stop.
We had reserved a king bed with a daybed. We we arrived they told us that they had upgraded us to a king with bunk beds the room was perfect since we had our 14 year old daughter with us and it gave her her own space. The clerk gave us an excellent recommendation for dinner. We enjoyed the bar after our show. We would return.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Rouge, a Kimpton Hotel We are so pleased that you enjoyed your get away and the upgraded room with a bunk bed for your daughter! We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Nice hotel I would recommend ifGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Great hotel, but disappointed that the room smelled strongly of cigarette smoke. Notified front desk and they didn't seem surprised or offer to change rooms.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Rouge, a Kimpton Hotel Yikes! We are 100% non smoking and charge a pretty hefty smoking fee so we are usually surprised when a guests smokes. I am so sorry and glad that we were able to find you a new room.

"Wonderful Hotel in the heart of DC"
The Hotel Rouge lives up to the Kimpton standards. The staff was very helpful and kind. The room was spacious and comfortable. The neighborhood is safe and quite for being right in the middle of the city. I would definitely stay here again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Rouge, a Kimpton Hotel Thanks, Sarah! We appreciate the awesome feedback and look forward to your return also.
Wonderful wonderful stay. I can't say enough good things about this hotel. The location is fabulous. Close to DuPont Circle, the federal triangle, P street, 14th street, and all those restaurants and shops. The room is so spacious. More than enough towels, which are relatively new and very clean. Brand name toiletries. Charge dock on night stand, which […] is very convenient to charge cellphone while you sleep. Staff are extremely nice and courteous. When I checked in, the desk lamp was not working. I called the front desk and someone showed up immediately. The front desk gave out a voucher for a glass of wine at their bar for free as a welcome. In room safe is handy. They even have an umbrella in the room for you to use. Bed is comfortable and pillows are two types, in case you prefer one to the other. Only complain is that the AC is a bit loud so I had to turn it off during the night. Could be an issue during the coldest time of winter. Overall very satisfied!

"Lovely stay at the Rouge"
It was a wonderful hotel, my stay was excellent, i even loved the cold refreshing lemon water they had daily in the lobby, the only thing that shocked me was the 100$ a night kind of insurance fee although the money i returned after check out it would of been nice to know before hand, also i was wrongly charged for parking, but the staff was friendly […] ad professional and handled it well. the only thing that would have made this the best stay ever would have been a pool :] Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Rouge, a Kimpton Hotel Thank you for taking the time to review your visit to the Rouge. I am pleased that the front desk quickly fixed the billing error for parking and sorry for the inconvenience. The $100 hold on your credit card is an authorization only and will only be billed if incidentals are used. This is commonly done at hotels but we are sorry that you were not notified in advance.

Response by Hotel Rouge, a Kimpton Hotel Hi Nicole. Thank you for your patience while your computer system was down. A little more wine helps the time go by so we are glad that you enjoyed a few glasses while we got everything up and running again!
"It certainly is red."
Room was fine, but odd decor. Internet is only free if you sign up for hotel rewards. It was nice to stay in a neighborhood, but don't think I would stay again. Far away from places to eat and metro (10-15 minute walk fine in summer, but not great in winter.)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Rouge, a Kimpton Hotel Thanks for the valuable feedback! Yes, our design is unique especially against the other hotel chains but we like to give our guests a fun and stylish experience.

Response by Hotel Rouge, a Kimpton Hotel Hi Sallie. Thank you for choosing the Rouge for your visit to DC. We are so pleased that you found us to be comfortable and a great value. we look forward to welcoming you back soon.
A cute hotel that lives up to its boutique reputation. Cool rooms, love the wine happy hour. Hotel staff seemed preoccupied, yet nice. The restaurant was way understaffed at 7pm, with only one person waiting tables and tending the bar. Food was mediocre. If you're looking for a cool, clean and comfortable place to crash, this is it. If your looking […] for quality culinary dishes, you'd be better to try the surrounding restaurants. 3.5/5 Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Good option in Embassy Row"
Everything went well. Friendly staff, comfortable room, good food, wifi, happy hour, etc. Not as well appointed as the other Kimpton hotels I've stayed at, but no problems. They take the "Rouge" theme seriously here - the interior features various shades of red. One issue for me was dropping off my car for valet parking. There is no pull-in. You leave […] your car on the street in front of the hotel. A little dicey if you have mobility issues as I do. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Summer trip with kids"
We had a great stay at the Rouge this summer. I brought myself, and my two kids (under 10) and was a little concerned that this hotel wouldn't be kid-friendly. I was amazed by how nice and helpful everyone at the hotel was. They offered to send cookies and milk to my room every night, there were always drinks available when we returned from our adventures, […] the kids loved the trendy décor. The surrounding area is very nice and easy to walk. It is also close enough to the major attractions, to where I did not need to grab a cab. All in all it was a great experience and I would definitely stay again, when in DC. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice place in central spot"
Rouge Hotel was a nice spot for a business trip near Dupont Circle. The decor is a little hipster strange, but still comfortable. The pink and red theme can get a bit tired and the breakfast buffet is overpriced and underwhelming. But the staff are friendly and the rooms are totally fine despite the cliched decor.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good hotel, but parking extremely expensive."
Everything was good. The room is very big, comfortable and clean. The staff is very polite and cordial. The only point that disagreed me was the price of the parking. I payed more than US$50 for one night. In my opinion, it is too much and should be cheaper!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Rouge, a Kimpton Hotel Hi Hipmunk. Thanks for taking the time to give us your feedback. We are so happy that you enjoyed the hotel but sorry that the cost of parking disagreed with you. DC parking is expensive all around, we are competitive with other hotel and lot prices in our area, but I do understand the sticker shock.
