We got a delux king room here. Walking distance to the White House and we only had 24 hours in Washington so location was everything. The staff were sooo nice! The bed however was horrendous. As I rolled over (I'm 5 foot tall and weight 50kg) my partner felt every single wriggle and it woke him up and vice versa....

We just had two rooms here for 7 nights. It was perfect for us as we got a king suite with a sofa/sitting area adjoining a room with 2 queen beds which worked perfectly for my husband and myself and our two college age daughters. We requested a refrigerator to put some medication in (their mini fridge is stocked) and...

Great location and fun and funky hotel. You have to be ok with funky, it isn't upscale luxury but still quite nice. And it is red, all over. But I stayed there for a long weekend and really enjoyed it.

Small rooms, VERY uncomfortable bed and not clean! No continental breakfast, the free coffee and hot chocolate were weak :-/ Thankfully the hotel is located within walking distance (1-2 blocks) to a whole foods. We had an extra fridge delivered to our room and a microwave (which is typically $15 a day! but our fee was waved due to my...

Me and my wife stayed here for only 2 days but it was worth it. The hotel is really nice and the decorations, most of them being red made it really pleasing and different from any other hotel I've been. The first night of valet parking is free for a red vehicle which is pretty awesome. They are also pet...

First, the hotel tried to charge me a $23 resort fee upon check-in. I had to show them my prepaid reservation thru Hotel Tonight which showed that there was no resort fee stated during booking. They upgraded me to a larger room. Whereas the decor may have been retro at one point now it just looked outdated. The couch was...

I had a short but great stay with my wife celebrating my birthday. The room was large and comfortable. Great value with the free happy hour, bar credit with the secret password (not that secret, just Google it...) and the Raid the Bar credit for being a Kimpton member. All nice touches that set it apart from some hotels that...

Good welcome from staff, who was actually new , hence he could not answer some of my questions on the brand. I happened to buck up on this hotel on the IHG site and tried figuring out if my Platinum standard would apply here - apparently now. When he mentioned that the hotel was never renovated since it was converted...

We travel to DC frequently and for this visit there were actually a number of nicer hotels with great rates. We picked the Rouge to have the option of a suite and more space for our family of four. The room configuration was a positive and for a city hotel we had a good amount of space. It was nice...

Still a great hotel in a great location, even after years of my initial stay. This time, with family, but no change in the great service. Staff was very courteous and accommodating. Hotel still has that cool quirky style, which is definitely a draw. Still astrological prices for valet parking (your only option really in downtown DC) and for room...
