What a wonderful stay. Great location, lovely big room and A wine hosting hour everyday. Would recommend this hotel for everyone one of the best hotels I have stayed in. Really friendly staff where nothing was too much trouble.

If you read through the positive comments, such as by rushnspkr, they pretty much reflect what I thought. First, the location is great: not only is there Dupont Circle and its restaurants, but there is a Whole Foods an easy walk away. The hotel has a boutique vibe but doesn't come off as pretentious or too hip for thou. Things...

Wow, what a pleasantly surprising stay at Rough over Memorial Day weekend! The lobby is cool and inviting, with guests treateed to wine and olives in the evening, pizza around noon, and fresh ice water on tap all day. The toiletries in the bathroom were revitalizing, not your standard low-grade stuff in tiny bottles. The bed was heavenly. Spacious, with...

This was my first stay with Inner Circle status so I may be biased but I love Hotel Rouge (and Kimpton for that matter). Everything just seemed "right"... The room size (upgraded to a room with kitchenette) was generous with an upbeat vibe. Coffee was free in the morning, the breakfast at Bar Rouge was reasonably priced (and also included...

We were in Washington DC to get married. The hotel staff went above and beyond to make it a special experience for us. The room and surprise champagne made us feel very special. We cannot say enough to express our gratitude for their hospitality.

Conveniently located close to the Dupont Circle metro stop (10 minute walk). Very spacious room (the most I ever had). Coffee maker was delivered to our room upon request. Slow elevators.

Pros: location, decent sized room, fair breakfast, good useable wireless internet Cons: poor fit and finish, smelly room, decor misses the mark The fact that this hotel is so highly rated is a testament to the poor value DC hotels offer.
