“The best hotel in Washington”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

We have stayed several times at Hotel George, once for a week with our dog when we had moved out of our house on Capitol Hill and were moving to Budapest, and once for six weeks when we had temporarily returned home before moving to Saudi Arabia. Both experiences were outstanding, and we would never consider staying anywhere else in Washington other than our own home because Hotel George has become our second home in the city. The rooms are excellent, the staff is friendly and helpful, the location near Union Station is convenient and the attached restaurant is superb. I simply can't recommend this hotel highly enough. Even our dog loved it -- it's a long story, but she escaped from our yard when workmen were at our house and ran 15 blocks on streets she didn't know and chased by a police car straight to Hotel George (looking for me), where she walked in the front door and got on an elevator. She was found by hotel staff in front of our room, but on the wrong floor. I can't think of a higher recommendation that that!

Room Tip: We have stayed in several rooms at the hotel, and all were excellent. I believe the rooms fronting E...

Thank you, Helen! You three--pup included, of course--are some of our favorites. We're so glad you can call The George your home away from home, especially when you travel so often to so many places.

See you soon,

My husband and I stayed at The George on an anniversary trip.T our surprise, we received a bottle of wine and a box of chocolates with a handwritten note in our room. The location is great for being close to Capitol Hill and Union Station. The hotel and rooms were decorated very tastefully with a little of George Washington everywhere!The beds were very comfortable! Large bathrooms and showers.The staff is very friendly and personable. The fire alarm went off during the night and the staff was very professional handling the situation. Would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Stayed on the 7th floor and it was very quiet; no street noise.

This hotel is very close to Union Station and Capitol Hill making getting around DC super easy especially with two 13yr olds. The staff is phenomenal and super helpful. The new remodel of the entire hotel is so fun and a great touch.

We recently stayed at The George for the Rock n' Roll Marathon. It is in a great location to all of the city sights and so close to Union Station and the Metro. The happy hour had great wines for the four nights that we were there. Bistro Bis is a wonderful restaurant that I would highly recommend. Hotel was so gracious and had race day treats for us in the lobby on the morning of the race. Cannot say enough good things about the hotel. Would definitely stay there again.

Did you have a good race, 1956Buick? We like to think we helped with that, but it probably has a lot more to do with your fantastic attitude. Thank you for the great review! We'll look forward to hosting you for the next Rock'n'Roll marathon. And all the races in between!

I recently had the pleasure of staying at the George while in town for the Rock n' Roll Half Marathon . I can't say enough positive things about the hotel. The proximity to Amtrak and the metro is ideal. Plus, there is a great little bakery/ cafe on the corner that was delicious. The hotel itself is stunning. The rooms are spacious, the beds comfortable and you can't beat the free wi-fi for Kimpton InTouch members. And who can forget the complimentary wine hour in the lobby? It's such a great way to unwind on a trip. I would be remiss if I forgot to mention the super accommodating staff, Assistant Manager Michael Love, in particular. Everyone was genuinely friendly and sincere and seemed intent on making every aspect of our trip a delight. Last but not least, I have to say I was incredibly impressed that the hotel provided refreshments in the lobby the morning of the race. It was such a small, thoughtful gesture that truly made me feel special. I intend to travel to DC in the future and wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else.

The hotel has been recently renovated and is absolutely beautiful. The room was comfortable, stylish and very quiet for a city hotel. Service was friendly and professional. The location is perfect and is within walking distance of many areas of interest. The restaurant next door was very accommodating and even opened a bit early for us for a business breakfast. Overall I give the spot an A+.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the interior - no street noise!

A wonderful boutique hotel. The room was comfortable and full of needed amenities. Very stylish with fun tongue in cheek pictures of George and Martha. Be sure to join the Kimpton group for discounts.
