It was great! We had a little bachelorette party there and everyone had a great time! Unfortunately, the fridge was full of stuff and mildly warm so we couldn't put any of our drinks in there. But other than that we had a great time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Surprized dogs were allowed"
Didn't realize this hotel allowed dogs. While there was no problem with odor/cleanliness in the room, guests left their dogs and went out for the night resulting in barking dogs. The front desk was responsive, but not much they could do until the owners returned.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Check your door locks"
Deadbolt was jammed. Needed to call an engineer on this -- shows that they aren't routinely checking their security measures. Also there was a bug in the bathroom. Otherwise, room/experience was fine, but I probably wouldn't stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Rouge, a Kimpton Hotel Thanks for the feedback! We do check our security but looks like we had a faulty deadbolt in that room and I am so sorry!
The Kimpton line has always been a preferred of mine when traveling. The Rouge is my "go to" while in DC. I love the modern, snazzy decor.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Rouge, a Kimpton Hotel Thanks, Andrew! We are so thrilled that you enjoyed your visit with us and we look forward to welcoming you back!
"Great Customer Service"
I was rushing to get to an event on Saturday evening, and couldn't get Uber to connect. Panic-stricken, I went to the lobby and a woman standing next to the happy hour bar asked how my day was going. I said "Terrible I'm going to be late for this event because I can't get an Uber!" Within 30 seconds she had called the guy to get me a cab. I made it […] to the event on time thanks to her! Cameron (?) at the front desk was great too - even asked me "what type of room I preferred" (meaning high floor, lower floor, front or back of house, etc... Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Rouge, a Kimpton Hotel Dear Colleen. Thank you so much for writing about your great experience at the Rouge. I will be sure to give Cameron extra Kudos for helping you turn your day around!
"Fun Boutique Hotel in great location"
Hotel Rouge was amazing! Got to check in early, free bloody marys, pizza, and cocktails in the lobby at different times too. Valet Parking was super easy. Room was very cool and loved the robes. Definitely my kind of place! We got a great deal too for the location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Rouge, a Kimpton Hotel Dear Jennifer. Looks like we are a perfect match! We hope to see you again during your next visit to DC!
Hotel's fine for short business trips. Gym is tiny as heck. Some Kimptons offer a continental breakfast, this one just offers coffee and tea. Neighborhood is decent, but nothing is right there. Have to walk a few blocks to find any decent coffee shops or restaurants.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Rouge, a Kimpton Hotel Hi Robert. Thank you so much for your feedback. We appreciate your comments and hope that you will return.
"An aging-looking hotel with red walls and floors."
Just a quick 2-night stay in the city (Washington, DC) to get away. The photos on the web site make the hotel appear to be an upscale, new-looking place. In reality, just because all the walls and floors are a bright red, it couldn't hide the shabbiness of it. It wasn't horrible, but it's clearing an aging hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Rouge, a Kimpton Hotel Dear Michael. Thank you for your review. Our rooms, lobby and elevators were recently renovated and our corridors with the red walls will be renovated this year to match the style. We hope to see you back for more feedback.
"Front desk made my trip!"
Incredible location. I came solo for one night to hear a lecture. It was my birthday. Front desk was great really took such nice care of me! Thanks guys!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Rouge, a Kimpton Hotel Thanks, Jill! I am so pleased to hear that the front desk took such great care of you during your birthday weekend! We hope you will make this an annual event!
A friend and I were in town for a concert. The hotel was about 3 miles away from the concert. We did not pay for valet being that it could run you $50 per night. We were able to find street parking. THey had a complimentary wine in the evening however we werent able to enjoy it being that we were pressed for time. THe customer service was great at checkin […] unsure about housekeeping because we didnt need to use it. We pretty much were there to shower and get dressed and then sleep. Loved the room design however do wish the bathroom was a little bigger. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Rouge, a Kimpton Hotel Thanks for the valuable feedback, Nicole. I am pleased that you enjoyed the concert and liked our décor. Please find us again during your next visit!
"The Rouge, Washington DC"
The hotel is a funky boutique hotel in a great location. The staff are exceedingly helpful and upbeat. Usually stay in a nearby similarly places hotel and will now stay at the Rouge instead.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Rouge, a Kimpton Hotel Its so great to hear that because of our wonderful staff, you will choose the Rouge again during your next visit to DC! Thank you!
This hotel is not worth it they charge extra fee and by the end of your stay you could've stayed at really nice hotel and not refurbished old furniture gypped of the hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Rouge, a Kimpton Hotel Dear Gladys. Thank you for your valuable feedback and for taking the time to comment about your visit. The fee does include a number of amenities and is clearly mentioned at the time of reservation. I am sorry if it was not what you expected, perhaps next time we can make it up to you.
"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

"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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Rouge, a Kimpton Hotel Hi Nell. I am so sorry that the Rouge fell short of your expectations. We are in the process of finishing a long renovation where the corridors have yet to be completed. The good news is that we will be giving all the rooms a facelift next year! Thanks for noticing our friendly staff! They will be excited to hear that you enjoyed their amazing service.
"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.

Response by Hotel Rouge, a Kimpton Hotel Thanks, Janet! We appreciate the feedback and great review. Sorry for the hiccups but it looks like the staff made up for the mistakes and that overall you enjoyed your visit very much!
"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.

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

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

"Nice hotel walking distance to Dupont Cir"
We weren't in the room much, but it was a nice hotel. Valet was a little pricey, but worth it in that area. Staff was very courteous and it was a pleasure to stay there. The bathroom was a bit small, but very clean and had all the normal amenities. I liked how close it was to everything and that you can get your car whenever you needed it.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Hotel Rouge, a Kimpton Hotel We are so pleased that you enjoyed our central location! The staff will be happy that you enjoyed their great service and we hope that you will find us again during your next visit to DC.
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.

"Ok hotel for one night"
I thought the hotel was okay. We arrived quite late and found the overnight crew to be a bit brash. Our room was clean but the hotel is showing signs if wear...some of the lights in the hall looked like they were falling apart and some of the doors looked old. Also the valet parking was ridiculously expensive.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Hotel Rouge, a Kimpton Hotel Hi Katara. Thank you for taking the time to give us valuable feedback about your experience at the Rouge. We will be sure to address the issues and look forward to a 5 star review during your next visit.
Nice time. Fun look. Great service. I didn't like the high parking feeGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by Hotel Rouge, a Kimpton Hotel Thanks for commenting on your recent visit. Our parking is expensive and sorry for the sticker shock! Our prices are competitive for the area but we do realize that it's expensive. Keep in mind, that 1 night's parking if free if you drive a red car and we deeply discount parking for hybrid vehicles.
"Great price and extras"
Stayed 2 nights. Rooms was huge, however the hotel was a bit too eclectic for us. Red shimmery floors. Coffe and breakfast in the morning. Wine and small snacks at night. Pleasant staff and convenient area.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Hotel Rouge, a Kimpton Hotel Thanks, Otis. We are glad that you found us to be a great value. Our style is unique and although most people like it, we understand if we are a little eclectic for some. Luckily, we have 8 other great Kimpton Hotels in DC to choose from and we are all different.

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.

"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

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
