My second visit to this hotel. Nice unique boutique feel, clean, wonderful staff, nice touches all over the place. Hot chocolate in the afternoon, wine at 5, a goodie bag for the kids. Close to Union Station and not far from the mall. As other people have mentioned, the Bistro downstairs is a great place to people watch. You have a good chance at seeing many familiar faces from politics and TV news. One of my favorite hotels in any city.

We chose the Hotel George based on it's close proximity to Union Station and the reasonable price for a one night's stay. Knowing it was a bit if a gamble, we actually said on our short walk from the train station to the mystery hotel, "If it's really bad, we have other options!"
We arrived on a brutally cold afternoon and upon our taking our first steps through the front doors, we were greeted with such gracious warmth. From the ever smiling doorman to the wonderful guys behind the desk, we felt an immediate feeling of Welcome. The entire staff was warm, friendly and yet very professional but the stand out for us was Edgardo. He was eager to make our stay, my last minute Birthday celebration trip, as enjoyable as possible. He is a valuable member if your Kimpton Hotel family team. We appreciate his kindness so very much.
We are planning another trip in the spring and look forward to another stay at Hotel George. Thank you.

Our weekend at the george was great. Each time we have been there the experience has been terrific. It is very convenient to Union Station if you are coming in by train. The restaurant has excellent food and drinks.

We spent one night at the George before leaving for NYC. I'm from DC, so I knew about other Kimpton properties in the area, but wasn't familiar with the George. I had heard good things, and the location across from Union Station was perfect. We had an early morning train the next day, and you can't beat that short walk - literally across the street! We did some sightseeing during our day in DC, and made it to the Lincoln Memorial right at dark...when it began to pour. Not being prepared, we walked all the way in the rain to the Metro to get back to the George. Needless to say, that complimentary glass of wine they offered when we arrived was very welcomed :) We had a nice spacious room, and the great hot shower was much appreciated too! We also had found a reasonable rate for the night. We'd definitely stay again if we were headed somewhere on the train.

I travel to DC primarily for business and always stay at the George. I was most recently there the week of inauguration. I expected it to be a madhouse, but the staff at the George had everything totally under control, and went out of their way to make me feel like a VIP. I always stay at Kimpton hotels for the free Wi-Fi and other Kimpton member perks (like wine receptions) but the George has a lot more than just that going for it. Adjacent to a great restaurant (Bistro Bis), walking distance to the Capitol, and very close to Union Station, you really can't go wrong. But what really sets it apart is the staff, who are always helpful and friendly and go out of their way to make you feel like a truly valuable guest in their hotel. It starts with Solomon, the doorman, who is awesome, and goes all the way to the front desk staff, the restaurant staff, and the whole service team. This hotel is run by a truly top notch team.

The restaurant is one of the best in DC and you see some celebrities there. My wife enjoyed the wine reception but I was working. Very convenient location for downtown work. Room was moderate size but needed a new carpet as I understand they will do this year.

I really want to like this place, but I wouldn't stay there again. The good stuff: a small, private, hotel convenient to the Capital, spacious bathroom with separate shower and tub, great bed, clean, well-maintained, good restaurant downstairs. The bad stuff: Extremely noisy room furnace, a nearby EMT facility that spits out screaming ambulances several times each night, folding doors on the TV cabinet that won't stay open, the restaurant is eye-watering expensive, no other restaurants within an easy walking distance (except a so-so Irish Pub around the block). Actually the nearest food outside the hotel is the food court in Union Station. Stay here if you're on an expense account and can sleep through sirens.

Room Tip: Stay away from the street side. I booked directly with the hotel and still got a street-side room.
