“Great DC Hotel!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2013

Based on other Tripadvisor Hotels, I picked the Hotel George, and was not disappointed. Located on E Street, very close to Union Station and the Capital Building, this hotel was a great choice. A cute,comfortable room facing a brick wall, great light. Very clean, nice custodial staff. Overall, the hotel staff was polite and personable, after a couple of days, they felt like old friends. The Kimpton hotels are great, and there are many details about the hotels that just make your stay better. Every room has an umbrella in it!! I asked for a yoga mat, and within five minutes had a yoga mat and yoga blocks. Bistro Bis, the hotel restaurant, has great breakfast as well. Overall, enjoyable stay.

We stayed here for 5 nights over Easter weekend. Great location, we were able to take the train from NJ and just walk the 2 blocks to the Hotel from Union Station. The room was a nice size, bed comfortable with a view of a brick wall. Everyone that worked at the George was very helpful,especially the doorman who one evening really went out of his way to get us a cab. There is a large homeless shelter very nearby but besides asking for money it was OK.I would be careful walking around the area at night. One afternoon after leaving the Hotel at 8 am and returning at 230 pm ,walking for miles to see all the monuments, we returned exhaused to find our room not made up. I called and it was done quickly. The Kimpton loyalty program is great....free wi-fi. Will definitely return to the George next time we come to DC.

We stayed at Hotel George the first weekend in April 2013 hoping to see the cherry blossoms. While the blossoms didn't really work out everything at Hotel George did. The location is great. Just a short walk from Union Station and the Capitol with a Metro station nearby. Our room was clean as was the large bathroom. The bed was comfortable. The sheets were nice and crisp. There were pillows of various firmness. The staff was very nice. I would recommend this hotel.

This hotel offers a very stylish environment with nice amenities. The staff was very friendly and efficient. We weren't able to take advantage of the "Happy Hour" complimentary wine, but the cooler containing both lemon water and lime water in the lobby was a nice touch.

Everything in the room, lobby and elevators was sparkling clean! This is a nice place to stay!

  • Liked — Cleanliness and comfort
  • Disliked — The pricey breakfast in the adjoining restaurant that was really just average food.

We stayed at the Hotel George from 4/5 - 4/7 for a weekend in DC and I thought the hotel was outstanding. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable, the staff was very accomodating and the location, just a block from Union station and a few blocks from the capital is great.
This is a great place to stay and we wil be sure to book this hotel for our next trip to DC.

We stayed at the Hotel George for the first time ever for a long weekend over Easter, and it will most definitely not be our last visit. It is a great hotel with fantastic service and staff that go the extra mile consistently. The nightly wine/beer reception is the perfect antidote for a day full of sightseeing and walking. Even my 7 year old would tell us we needed to get back to the hotel in time for Happy Hour each day. It might have been the Wii made available to him, or the magician, or the caricature artist...not sure, but he loved it. He brought his homework down each evening to do while mom and dad were chilling out, but it never got done. The rooms were immaculate and comfortable. Even with four of us in the room, it never got overwhelming or uncomfortable. I mentioned that this was the first hotel I have ever stayed in - and that it too many to even count - that I never once saw a housekeeping employee, either in the hallway or cleaning in the room. Yet, the entire hotel was spotless. I find that remarkable. I guess my only suggestion would be to have some sort of food/drink available for younger children. I understand that having a vending machine on every floor plays against the ambiance of the hotel, but perhaps one in the basement or somewhere so that the kids could get a can of soda and treat at any point during the stay. Also, the barking dogs in the middle of the night I could do without. Otherwise, thank you so much for the wonderful stay. The chocolate eggs offered to all of us on Easter morning was a nice touch as well. We will be back.

Room Tip: Ask which floor the dogs are on before you accept the room....
