“Perfect Location--Outstanding Staff”
Reviewed 1 July 2013

This hotel has it all. You are welcomed by a staff that is both professional and accomadating. Very friendly people that go out of their way to welcome you and make your stay comfortable. The room was very nice and had been updated very recently. It had everything we were looking for. The hotel is located only a couple blocks from the Capital and is convenient by a short cab ride to some great restaurants--the staff provided a recommendation and we were extremely please with his suggestion. There is also a place to grab a quick breakfast or coffee on the same block. While we did not have the opportunity to eat at the Bistro Bis at the hotel we did sample the cocktails and they were wonderful. If you are looking for a place to stay in DC I would most definately recommend The George--you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: This is an 8 story hotel. We stayed on the 8th floor facing the street and our room was very quiet.

The George is a perfect combination of location,facility and service. The staff from the Doorman to the bellmen to the front desk staff could not be more helpful and accomadating. The location right by Union Station and close to the Capitol make it convienent to most DC attractions. The rooms were well appointed and comfortable and exactly what I would expect from a boutique hotel of this size. However the service is what truly sets the George apart. This will be our new base whenever we are in DC!

I stayed at Hotel George for a week so got to see it from many different angles. First off, the front door staff is awesome and very friendly, they make you feel at home from the second that you enter. The Bistro Bis is also a great little restaurant and I liked the happy hour and snacks each evening, that was a very nice touch.The major downside of this facility is its age and the rooms. I felt that everything was quite dated in the rooms and many faced the street, leading to never ending nice and making it hard to sleep.

In short, the hotel is average -- it is fine and typically a good deal looking for a family to visit DC for touring or other activities that will keep you away from the hotel for large chunks of time. It is not, however, a luxurious four star hotel (or even a strong Kimpton for that matter, as many are better). It is an average hotel that is nice for a quick stay.

As usual, my stay at a Kimpton Hotel was great...this time The George right by Union Station in Washington DC which was handy for my travel plans. Such a shame it was such a rushed one-night visit that I didn't get to participate in the evening drinks social or sample the restaurant. But slept well on a super comfortable bed with my favorite type of pillows. My internet connection as a Kimpton InTouch member was free. All the staff that I came in touch with were friendly and courteous and so very helpful finding me a cab that accepted a credit card! Will look for more Kimpton Hotel opportunities and will definitely come back to The George.

I stayed at the Hotel George from May 13-17 and had a wonderful stay. The staff was extremely friendly and was willing to accommodate just about any request. When I arrived, the valet pointed me to free curbside parking, as opposed to paying the $40 valet fee. He also pointed out the parking lot that was directly across the street from the hotel that I could use as well. I really appreciated this honesty. The room, while not overly big, was clean and well appointed. The room came with the cutest robes to put on - one leopard, and one zebra print, as opposed to the traditional white. I thought that was a nice touch. The location is just at the edge of Georgetown, which provides for great shopping. There was a nightly reception which offered complimentary wine, which was great for unwinding after a long day of class. An overall great stay, and I'd definitely stay again!

Room Tip: Use the parking lot across the street as opposed to valet :)

I stayed at the Hotel George Innauguration weekend 2013 and loved it.
Service: Service was 5 star. This was a busy weekend and the hotel was likely booked to capacity, but the staff was very gracious and attentive. It couldn't been a mad house, but they ran it like a well oiled machine. Check-in and check-out were quick and efficient. The complimentary Kimpton happy hour is always appreciated, as is the complimentary mini-bar for In Touch Loyalty members. I also loved the free hand warmers given to all hotel guests the morning of the innauguration. They were definitely needed in the freezing cold temps as we stood outside for hours.
Location: The Hotel is located down the street from the Amtrak station making it super convenient to catch the train in and walk there. It was also a brief walk from Capitol Hill area where the innaugural ceremonies were to take place. Location couldnt have been better for the weekend.
Room: The room was clean. It had good lighting. The bathroom was large. Unfortunately the view sucked (looked out onto the side of an office building) but overall the accomodations were good.
Overall I would stay at the Hotel George again. I am a fan of the Kimpton brand and the George certainly lived up to the standard.

This was our family's first stay at a Kimpton Hotel. We were on a family vacation. The staff that greeted us at the front was friendly and helped us check in our bags since our room was not yet ready. I must say that the front door staff is the best out of all the staff. They are always helpful in getting us a cab and always greeted us with a smile. The front desk staff was average. I expected more. There was a time when I asked if they had tea bags and in other hotels, I have never had an issue. First she could not locate it and then when I asked if there were herbal teas, she said "No" and did not offer any other suggestions. The second experience was also when I asked where we could purchase bottled water. She said, "No, we don't have a gift shop and the closest is CVS" and that was about .9 miles away. She could have offered for us to possibly purchase in the bar area? Just a suggestion for customer service. Otherwise, the stay was pleasant and the rooms are roomy and clean. The beds are comfortable and the beddings and towels were quality material.

Location--it is a couple of minutes from union station, which has eating establishments, some shopping and the Metro, 5 minute walk to the Capitol and the Mall with the Smithsonian museums and memorials are about 15 minute walk. It is in a safe neighborhood and we enjoyed night strolls to the Capitol.

It is more of an expensive hotel but that is due to location. It is not the type of hotel, however, that you can step out and find an active night life or fun boutiques and cafes. That would be more of Georgetown or downtown.
