Ok Hotel, not the cleanest. Really nice staff

Posted 22-Sep-2014
Hotel has a weird smell, kind of smells like dogs and pizza. This is a pet friendly hotel so you will hear some barks. The bathroom is so small and looks like a throw back to the 80's, for some reason they don't show pictures of the bathroom on line, except for the suite and now I know why. That was the biggest disappointment, they really need to upgrade there bathrooms! The room was a nice size, and the location of the hotel wasn't bad, 10 min cab ride to the smithsonian and 10 min cab Ride to gerogetown. You really can't walk to the major museums and monuments.

Hi Luca. Thank you for the valuable feedback! We are totally bummed that we didn't WOW you and hate to think are ever off our game. Although we are pet friendly we do have pet free floors so if a guest is allergic or does not like pets, we have a room for them too. Our bathrooms are small but we make up for it with really nice large rooms - actually some of the largest standard rooms in the city!

Nice hotel. Bad color!

Posted 17-Sep-2014
Pros: The staff at the hotel were very nice and very helpful.
Cons: The lobby decor is very unpleasant. It is very dark and not particularly attractive.
Location: Good location to get to many tourist sites, Dupont CIrcle, and good restaurants.
We enjoyed our stay despite the color scheme and rug choices. The staff were very friendly, the room was very spacious, and the bathroom was nice and adequate in size. One plus was the large mirror in the room! This is often lacking in typical hotel rooms. The hotel is in a great location and easy to get to by car or from which to walk to restaurants and interesting neighborhoods. Overall, we had a great experience despite the overkill on the color red.

Thank you for the valuable feedback. I am glad that overall you enjoyed your visit but I am sorry that you found the color scheme to be too much. We are unique and well liked for our style, but if you don't like red, the Rouge may not be a good choice for you.

With the price...

Posted 8-Sep-2014
I expected to at least have a coffee maker and an air condition that cooled the entire room for the price I paid. They explained the lack of a coffee maker on the fact that they have great coffee in the dining area. Ummm, would have loved to have had coffee in my room without the jacked up price for room service. Half air conditioned room... No explanation. Oh yeah, valet car service for one night $50.00! Would I return... Maybe. They said the room I got with two queen beds instead of the king bed was because I booked through Expedia... That is a first!

Hi Julia. I am disappointed that you didn't fully enjoy your visit but thank you for the valuable feedback. We do have great complimentary coffee available in the lobby but we also can put a coffee maker in your room on request. The HVAC issues will need to be looked into ASAP. We rarely get this complaint but I hate to think that any of our guests are uncomfortable because the room is too cold or too hot. Parking is very expensive in DC; however, our prices are comparable to other garages and hotels in the neighborhood. We hope to see you again and thank you for the comments!

Hotel with a Groovy Vibe

Posted 8-Sep-2014
I have stayed at this hotel several times. It is a great hotel. The decor is really contemporary. Reminds me more of a hotel on South Beach than in downtown Washington DC. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone traveing to DC.
