Traditional style blended with modern twists and Bistro Bis

The George, a Kimpton Hotel, built in the boom era of 1928, shares a similar background to several other Washington D.C. luxury hotels. As such, George Hotel embodies classic style, in keeping with the prestigious surrounds of its Capitol Hill location. The atmosphere is chic and modern. Guests get a fully comprehensive luxury experience, and can sample some of Capitol Hill's finest dining at the affiliate restaurant Bistro Bis, offering the highest quality French cuisine with the convenience of onsite dining. Pets are welcome, a relatively unusual feature and a very welcome addition for more local travelers.

3 Reasons to Stay:
  • Capitol Hill location gives easy access to most of the popular Washington D.C. monuments and landmarks

  • High quality French dining on site with affiliate restaurant Bistro Bis

  • Bold designs bring the 1928 hotel completely up to date

Wonderfully comfortable room

I thoroughly enjoyed this hotel. The room was very well appointed and comfortable. I had a room with one queen bed. While the view wasn't great (into other bedrooms# I wasn't there for that. I was looking for a comfortable hotel with easy access to the Department of Labor. The hotel fit this bill. My only complaint was about the service at Breakfast. on two occasions I had to hunt them down to ask for something. Upon entering, they immediately assumed that I would drink coffee and started to pour it before even asking what I wanted. I drink tea.! Same with the bill. The bill would come before even asking if we needed anything else. #same at dinner). This being said the food was really very good.

great location and accomadations

We saw all the sites we could in three nites and the location of the hotel George was excellent, real close to the Capital. The staff was a great help with the must things to do....The monuments by moonlight was a great first night. Try having a drink on top of the Washington hotel overlooking he White House...it's a great view of the City. This was one of our best trips.

Great hotel for a good price

We spent 2 nights and had a wonderful time. The food at the Bistro was very good however very expensive. The room was very spacious and the bed was very comfortable. We loved the location. It made it very easy to travel around on the Metro as we did not rent a car. We will stay here next trip to Washington.

Still a Solid Performer

The George continues to deliver value. Great location steps from Capital Hill and Union station. Helpful friendly staff and a killer restaurant, Bis. Beware rooms that look into the inner courtyard. They are functional, but not special and the AC unit bangs along all night.

BlackFinn American Saloon is great for happy hour and for dinner. Lots of intrigue with a mixed crowd of Republican and Democrat strategists steps from the White House. 1620 I Street Northwest Washington, DC 20006 (202) 429-4350

Staff was very Helpful and friendly. It was extremely hot while we were there. Had to keep the airconditioning on at night and it blew right at our bed. Easy walk to Capital bldgs, trains, and Smithsonian.
