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.

From the time I arrived to the time I left, service was impeccable. I asked to check in early and my request was honored. The room was in great condition. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was marble with both a tub and shower. The hotel is a couple of minute walk to Union Station. There is a Corner Bakery in the building next… Read more
From the time I arrived to the time I left, service was impeccable. I asked to check in early and my request was honored. The room was in great condition. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was marble with both a tub and shower. The hotel is a couple of minute walk to Union Station. There is a Corner Bakery in the building next door and a Starbucks two blocks away. I usually try to find local establishments but did not have time. The hotel is near a fire station so I was a little concerned about noise but it was not an issue. Read less

It's really a great hotel. I've stayed there many times. But a new wrinkle was presented: A $25/day "amenity fee" that comes as a surprise. Nothing in the hotel that I saw to tell me about the GREAT amenities you pay for, even if you have no use for them. Free long-distance calling, assuming you don't have a cell phone. Free car service within one… Read more
It's really a great hotel. I've stayed there many times. But a new wrinkle was presented: A $25/day "amenity fee" that comes as a surprise. Nothing in the hotel that I saw to tell me about the GREAT amenities you pay for, even if you have no use for them. Free long-distance calling, assuming you don't have a cell phone. Free car service within one mile of the hotel during a two-hour period in the AM and another in the PM, IF AVAILABLE. Faster-than-usual wi-fi. In essence, you get nothing of real value for $25/day, wh9ioh is why you are not told, I assume, and why you don't have the choice of saying "No thank you." It appears that Kimpton post IHG buy-0out has become just another brand; just another provider looking to impose "fees" that, when you come down to it, offer next to nothing in order to take the customers. You want to charge $25 more for your rooms. Do it! But don't do it in what I feel is a dishonest manner. I'll use a Kimpton again when the fee is no longer charged so sneakily or the fabulous amenities are optional. Read less

Great, hip hotel from the lobby to the room. However, where this hotel shines is through its people. It started with the friendly face at check in.

Great, hip hotel from the lobby to the room. However, where this hotel shines is through its people. It started with the friendly face at check in. Then, out of a rush to leave in the morning, I accidentally left my laptop. Mary, who had been awesome already at wine hour, giving us recommendations, and generally throughout our stay, rushed and delivered the laptop to my hands in the station two minutes before I was scheduled to depart to New York. Thanks to Mary, I will be arriving at work on Monday without a blip. I am so grateful to her and the George. Read less
