We had a one night stay and picked this hotel because they take dogs, any size, and are they are aloud to stay in the room if you go out. Of course, this is only if your dog doesn't bark, whine, or eat furniture. To be honest, the hotel is worn looking. the hallway light shades on our floor (9)...

My man and I stayed at the Rouge for a romantic evening out. The hotel was exquisite. The red decor throughout the entire hotel made it swanky and fun. We enjoyed cocktails in the lounge as well as a bottle of champagne and dessert ala room service. This hotel is clean, contemporary, and full of romance. Some serious memories were...

We stayed here while visiting my daughter in college. This hotel is smaller but the rooms are nice and roomy. We spent a lot of nights eating in the hotel restaurant because we were worn out from sight seeing each day but also because we liked the food even though it is a limited menu. The hotel is in a...

Having to be away form home when injured was unpleasant enough. To my surprise the wonderful atmosphere and staff made me forget about the horrible trip I was on and enjoy the time I spent in the hotel and bar.

Dear malxavier. I am super sad by your review and I am sorry that you did not enjoy your experience with us.

There were definitely a wide variety if guests, but as a younger couple we felt more at home here.

This was a last-minute good deal trip, and I don't think I could have done better! This place definitely (and thankfully) lacks the stuffiness of many DC hotels.
