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

EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE

Perfect location, clean, neat, AMAZING customer service. Shout out to Patrick Donovan at the front desk. He made my stay in DC that much better. I will definitely stay at The Hotel George again soon! The only downside is that one of the two elevators was out of service due to repairs. Other than that, a pleasant experience.

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.

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

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

Great hotel, BUT

Construction next door meant loud banging outside my room, starting at 7 am, which was not welcome after a late (midnight) arrival. Also, my room was on the back side of the hotel, lovely, big, well appointed, BUT a total fishbowl. No way to open the curtains and an shudder to think of who I flashed the night before when I maynot have closed the blinds completely ... I menitoned this to the assistant manager, and he told me construction on that side had been going on for about a year and it would be over in October. He offered to comp me breakfast and make sure I had a flawless stay on my next visit--and I have no doubt they would deliver, but it's pretty awful to think that unless you KNOW to ask for an "E Street View" you will feel like you are on display and have to deal with contruction noise. Too bad that 1/2 or 1/3 of the rooms have that flaw. GREAT staff and I'm sure the "good" rooms are grreat, too. I think it was kind of awful to charge full fare for that kind of room

Really (not only) dog friendly hotel

You probably know how hard it is to find a hotel that accepts dogs... but you probably have no idea how impossible it is to find a hotel which would accept an Irish Wolfhound (over 120 pounds...). Hotel George not only invited our dog to stay for no extra charge - they also gave us a bowl, a ball, some treats and directions to nearest dog parks! Apart from that - the hotel is clean and nice. There was no dog smell in the room. The staff was very friendly. And the location - couldn't be better!

Family getaway

The hotel did not meet our expectations. The room included a worn out mattress, broken mini bar key and construction from 7:30 am on each day.Hallways are worn, but lobby is welcoming with lemonade. Restaurant service was incredibly rushed, but food was delicious. Room service was quick and food also very good. Housekeeping staff was helpful about the mattress. Front desk was pleasant when asked, but only suggested sites, transportation, food when specifically asked., business computers cost $ 7.95/15 minutes. Saw many DC sites and Reds v Nationals game. Great city-will choose different hotel next time.

The George July 4th 2011

The room was spacious and clean. The bathroom had a separate tub and shower - we liked that. The beds were very comfortable, and had great fluffy pillows. The closet and drawers were nice and easy to stay organized. The lobby was very nice. They had ice cold water flavored with fresh fruit which was great after sightseeing in the heat! And a couple times they had wine and limeade which we enjoyed. We liked that they allowed pets and provided water and treats for them Our doggie did not et to come on this trip, but we appreciate that they welcome pets. The restuarant was excellent, although pricey so we did not frequent it during our stay. The only thing missing was a pool!

I like the wine event each evening. The gym at this one and the Philly one (I was there last week) are not great. The TV monitors often don't work on the equipment, the one in PHilly was hot and had no ventilation, the one in DC was cold.
