Reviewed 19 August 2011

Stayed here with my husband and two teenagers during one of the hottest weeks this summer in DC. DC is normally hot and humid during the summer, but this was unbearable and so draining. However, the staff at the Rouge went out of their way to compensate (including complimentary watermelon sangria!). Our room was perfect for us, the service was impeccable, and nothing disappointed. I accidentally left some clothing in our room when we checked out, and Tina, the head of housekeeping, could not have been nicer about sending it to me and not making me feel like an idiot for being so careless. The location is outstanding, too, right between Dupont Circle and downtown. And so much nice than one of those drab chains with no character!

Room Tip: Ask! They want their guests to be happy!

We were treated like VIP's before we even arrived! A personal e-mail from Allan Bella (Asst. General Manager) was followed by a complimentary bottle of wine and chocolates brought to our room. We were upgraded to a king room with kitchenette, and I admit we were stunned by the hotel. We usually stay at a "chain" hotel (i.e. Hyatt, Hilton, etc), so when we booked the Rouge it was with some amount of trepidation. Our fears were unfounded. The hotel was more than we could have ever dreamed of. The room was huge. The bed and linens were luxurious, and the "extras" made this hotel a destination, instead of just a way station while you visited the city. What other hotel offers its guests a bottle of water when they come back from a busy day of sightseeing? How about the use of a red feather boa when you need one for a night on the town? (didn't use that one, but it sounded like fun!) Complimentary Wine and Sangria are offered every evening, and on the weekends they have Bloody Mary's and cold pizza from eleven to noon. The staff was superb. Everyone from the front desk staff to housekeeping to the repairmen were thoughtful, efficient and determined to make our stay the highlight of our trip. Bravo. Bravo.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room on an upper floor. Sign up on Kimpton website for free internet.

The Hotel Rouge us traditionally my last stop for the return home.After trijing several hotels in the Usa, the Hotel Ropuge is absolutely the number one. Clean Spacious rooms, with lots of space for recreation and work. The internet-connection is fast, faster than any Hotel I tried and almost as fast as at my work (and I work in education, and in education we have fast Internet connections)..

This was my second stay at the hotel and it was just as good second time several years apart. Just a 20 min walk to the White House and ten mins to Dupont Circle.
Rooms large and comfortable. Bathrooms slightly small but adequate.
Staff very friendly and helpful.
In touch scheme great with mini bar credit
The wine happy hour is a great idea after long days sightseeing.
Hotel Highly recommended in Washington DC one of my favourite cities

I enjoyed my stay at Hotel Rouge. The room was clean and spacious. Most importantly, the staffs are wonderful, helpful and friendly. The overnight staffs always acknowledge me and smiled at me even though I was drunk like a sailor. Personally, I could not force myself to smile at 3AM in the morning. In any case, I highly recommend this hotel.
