The Rouge felt like a poorly kept apartment from my poor college student days. They’ve give up on keeping it up to Kimpton standards. Front desk staff was great, but they are stuck with a property that’s a dud. Updont… Read more

Very nice and clean...but it is dated and that shows around doors and upon close inspection of furniture and such. However, this does not distract from the hotel being a boutique or funky in nature.

Ok my room is gorgeous. Super modern. Clean. Comrdrotable bed. Spacious. Minibar. Nice bathroom. But what makes this place truly outstanding is the kind staff. Great service seems to be a rarity these days - certainly not here. Highly recommend!

This a small boutique hotel with reasonable rates. The lobby is small and the bar/restaurant is small with the small bar closing at 10 PM. The rooms are good size not small and are eclectically with comfortable beds. The rooms were also immaculate. On the downside they only have bathrooms with tubs not just a shower. Overall, a very nice place… Read more
