It was dirty and unprofessional and untidy. Juice spilled in the mini bar No valet parking Smell of urine in the halls have still not received my deposit back

Good hotel
I am traveling with my family including the dog for one night in Washington, DC. The hotel is pet friendly so if you don’t like dogs please don’t come. We found other dogs in the hotel. But the hotel is very comfortable and clean. Our room 903 was spacious but a little noisy because it faces the front of the hotel. Good shower and the breakfast was included. You can park your car on the street near the hotel or pay to the vallet parking. I found a parking two streets from the hotel but they charge usd 37 per night . On Sundays, It is free to park on the street.

Nice staff, ok hotel
Good location and dog friendly, which was nice. So many additional fees though- covered breakfast, wifi, and wine at night, which in theory is nice, but we didn’t use of any of it. It should be an opt in fee and not a mandatory one. Hotel was nice but the final price was was way more than what the room was worth. Probably won’t stay again

This hotel is like no other I've been to. The decor is sexy and unique and the fact that it's dog-friendly is a super plus! Most dog-friendly places are a bore, but not this one!

Great staff, nice stay
It was a good stay, with very gracious staff. However, they were unclear on what was actually operational on the morning after christmas, in addition, some of their offerings were not available. But even so, the staff was very, very nice and helpful.

We enjoyed the location and the comfortable rooms. Very roomy. But extremely dissatisfied with the fact that EVERYTHING was extra. No vending machines. Want you to pay $4 for soda and $5 for candy. Even the little conveniences that most hotels include cost extra. Free breakfast was cold almost stale pastry and stale breads as they were laid out uncovered. Very dark hotel.

Fair 4,0
Very disappointed
I have had nothing but good experiences with Kimpton until Rouge Hotel. Very clearly, this was a quick and cheap renovation of a dated hotel. The bathrooms are old and beaten up. The bedrooms feel seedy. The cable did not work properly- I could not watch even the most basic news. The bar/restaurant served browned limes and avocados. It was all around, a real disappointment
Maryetta, us2 night business trip
Very good 8,0
Funky, contemporary twist on a modern hotel.It reminds me of the Axel hotels in Europe. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The overall hotel decor is a bit dated, though. Great location and walkable to everything, or a quick ride.
