Huge room!

Posted 4-May-2015
Pros: Huge size of room and bathroom. Huge windows.
Location: Close to Du Pont Circle.
I've never stayed in such a big hotel room! A wonderful boutique hotel with quite the retro charm. Very clean rooms and responsive staff (I called down to get a shower cap and it arrived in under 5 minutes). Some rooms are pet friendly. If I had to list any negatives, it would be that it's not too close to a Metro station (about a 10 minute walk), and that there was more road noise at night than I was expecting, especially for the street it is on, which doesn't have heavy traffic.

Minimum 50 characters? Mandatory? Hotel was fine, in a nice central downtown location. Rooms are large, at least the two I saw. Very clean. Quiet from dark until 0700. There was a good AM coffee service, and the PM wine 'happy hour' was good too. Friendly pourer; plus snacks were available. I have zero negatives, and will consider The Rouge first on my return to DC.

Weekend in DC

Posted 27-Mar-2015
The hotel is in a nice and quiet location, 15min walk from the White House, 30 from 7th street. Everyone was friendly and professional and the room was comfortable. The bathroom was really tiny, though.

Good location but room could use an update

Posted 18-Mar-2015
Pros: Design, wine happy hour, my son's chance to take a toy from the front desk toy chest
Cons: Room 904 could use an update--lots of scuffs and nicks
Location: Great location near Dupont Circle, plenty of good restaurants within walking distance, close to metro
My family of three stayed for four nights at Hotel Rouge. The location is excellent. There are nice design touches, but our room was fairly beaten up--scuff marks, nicked furniture, etc. Kimpton has done a nice enough job of turning an old apartment building into a hotel, but it didn't feel as special as other Kimpton properties. I'm a Kimpton Karma rewards program member, so I got free wifi while there--but the hotel would not honor its "raid the minibar" program since I booked through Expedia (lame, if you ask me). The nightly wine happy hour was pleasant--decent wine and as much as you could drink and sweet potato tater tots. The staff was friendly but not overly so. For the price, I'll probably stay elsewhere on my next visit to DC.

Dear Raedog. Thank you for the feedback. We will certainly take your comments into consideration and I am sorry that we did not accomplish a 5 star experience for you. We are due for a renovation next year so we are excited! The raid the minibar is not eligible for 3rd party reservations at all Kimpton Hotels and I am sorry that you did not know that. We hope that you will try us again so that we give you a 5 star experience next time.

Hotel rogue is a great hotel. I really enjoyed my stay. The staff is very helpful and informative. Checking in was simple and quick. As far as parking goes there is not a lot and hard to find. Overnight valet is $50 and day parking is $25. The hotel itself is very clean, the hallways smell like cleaning products, which is a good sign. The rooms are very spacious and the beds are very comfortable. The food is great as well, pricey but worth it. As far as touring and attractions your within walking distance of food and things to do except most museums. Overall I really enjoyed my stay. I would recommend hotel rouge to anyone.

Quirky Decor, Pleasant Hotel

Posted 13-Mar-2015
Good location within easy walking distance of Dupont Circle. The rooms are spacious and clean. The decor is a bit garish for my taste: Hotel Rouge takes its name seriously with lots of red all over and tiger striped carpets.
