About Kimpton Rouge Hotel

Stylish hotel with free wine hour, steps from Dupont Circle

Chic sleep on Embassy Row

Situated among Embassy Row's stately mansions, Kimpton Rouge Hotel offers a central base 3 blocks from the buzz of Dupont Circle. It's an 8-minute walk to the National Geographic Museum or a 15-minute stroll to the White House, with the National Mall just beyond.

Biking and browsing

Within a 15-minute walk, you can enjoy the stellar art at the Phillips Collection or browse fashionable boutiques in Farragut Square. The hotel's free bike rentals make it easy to reach myriad other attractions like the National Air and Space Museum and the Lincoln Memorial.

Wellness and wine hour

Whether you work out in the 24-hour gym, use the in-room yoga mat, or book an in-room spa treatment, the hotel looks after your wellness. Free coffee and tea start the day, and a free wine hour kicks off evenings, while Bar Rouge is a seductive spot for nighttime cocktails.

Hip, high-tech rooms

In addition to Italian Frette® linens, high-definition LCD TVs, and iHomes™, the 137 guestrooms feature fiery red headboards and creative decor. You can curl up in a signature animal-print robe, snack on organic treats from the minibar, and connect with colleagues via WiFi.

Kimpton Rouge Hotel
A Little Shady
remote control not working, phone not working in room, and one lift not working which was very time consuming as the working lift was slow. Overall, the quality of décor out-dated and a little shabby looking. the lobby is very small. In the evening, dodgy looking people hanging around in lobby area. We tried to arrange a taxi for return journey to airport and we were advised that due to construction work on Saturdays, we should allow and hour and half for journey and they could arrange a private taxi for 85usd. Yet on the day, we checked the journey on google, there was no construction and journey time showed as 40 mins. We decided to flag our own taxi and saved 15 dollars! I think they must have some special deal going on with drivers so be careful. Overall, I didn't feel this hotel had a homely welcoming feel to it. I won't be staying there again.

Funky decor with exceptional customer service
Phenomenal staff. They could not do enough to make our stay more pleasant and comfortable and had brilliant local knowledge. Loved the fact that the décor is not your usual dull chain hotel. Enjoyed the wine hour and accompanying nibbles. Take a red car if you can . . . The hotel was a short walk from the main sights and it was easy to find our way around. And for once hotel wifi actually functioned properly in the room! The only downside was the cost of drinks in the bar and maybe the aircon is a little loud (didn't stop us sleeping though). We would highly recommend.

Great Location - 10m Walk From The Whitehouse
Good hotel. Staff very helpfull. Lots of good reasonably priced restaurants round the block plus a Wholefoods Store to stock up on healthy stuff. 3 blocks to the subway but only 10 mins to The Whitehouse on foot anyway. It was good value too.

Loved it! But no parking
Loved the customer service and all the amenities. They even supplied a free umbrella during the trip. I absolutely loved it. The only down fall is the parking situation. There is no parking unless you pay the $50 fee

Hip place to stay downtown
Did a quick overnight while seeing the sights with friends downtown DC. The location is perfect to walk to the bars and restaurants near 16th, 17th, and 18th street. Dupont Circle is a block away. The decor was hip.
