I stayed at Kimpton properties Rouge and Helix (a block away from the Rouge). Rouge is like a nightclub that is no longer trendy. Dotted metal front door with serpentine handles and crimson red everywhere. Pros: * InTouch members (free to anyone to signs up) entails $10 "Raid the Bar" credit from the mini bar. I got a 1 liter...

I really liked this hotel, it's the sort of colour scheme that you either love or hate, and I loved it. The front desk service was excellent and the location near the White House , DuPont circle etc was great. I would have been happy to give thus a 5 star review, but a couple of things let them down....

I went on a 4-5 extended long weekend with my brother about three weeks ago. I has stayed at Kimpton Madera on a business trip and was impressed, so I researched Kimpton looking for options.

Finding a title for this review was difficult because my experience at Hotel Rouge sat on the fence between average and good - we stayed for 3 nights and to be fair the hotel entirely met our needs.
