Kimpton George Hotel

Capitol Hill, Washington DC

The hotel

You won't find many better placed hotels to take in the sights of DC, with the White House, National Mall and the museums of the Smithsonian Institute all to be found within close quarters, alongside handy bikes to borrow if you fancy spending some time in the saddle. Aside from the awesome location, Kimpton The George also boasts an award-winning French bistro and hosted wine evenings in the lobby, so if you're hankering for sustenance after a day spent sightseeing or shopping your socks off then you know where to head. Another great way to ease yourself into the evening or prepare for the day ahead is at the hotel's 24hr fitness centre or in the comfort of your own room, as thanks to a unique yoga programme and in-room spa services there's no easier opportunity to stretch out in style. This is an award-winning boutique hotel that's bursting with contemporary chic and downtown sophistication and no trip to Washington is complete without checking into The George where you'll be met with a genuinely hospitable capital welcome.

When i asked about it, they said they hadn't turned the heat on, but would do so that afternoon. Really? First time i have ever been told that.

Several things not up to par. Checked in when temperatures were in the 30-40's. Cold in the lobby and cold in the room. When i asked about it, they said they hadn't turned the heat on, but would do so that afternoon. Really? First time i have ever been told that. They advertised that an amenity was one free uber ride a day. First day, no problem... got one around 11AM. Next day.. front desk said that was offered only from 7-9 in the morning and 7-9 in the evening. Lots of different answers at this hotel. No one seems to be on same page. Room was clean, small, no place to put your clothes as there were no drawers. Read less

We arrived at this hotel late afternoon and just in time for their complimentary wine hour. The staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious enough with a small sofa. There were nice touches such as the animal print bathrobes and a yoga mat. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. The bathroom was a good size with a bath/shower together with oversized bathtowels and lovely toiletries but no shower cap. The hotel is near Capitol Hill and Union Station is close by and very convenient for sightseeing for all the monuments. This was our first visit to Washington and thoughly enjoyed it and this hotel was comfortable. The only negative thing is water should also be complimentary in the rooms. Read less

The best part of the hotel is the staff. Very friendly and professional. The room was nice but with some minor improvements, could be really good. There should be complimentary water provided and real coffee makers. The HVAC was noisy but not unbearable. I would definitely consider staying again if the price was competitive.
