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

A nice, modern hotel near the Capitol

This is a modern, well-decorated hotel just steps from Union Station and about three blocks from the Capitol. The staff was extremely friendly to our entire family. The room was fairly large, but not quite a suite, and had a couch and lcd television. We enjoyed our stay very much.

Just what we hoped it would be

First time staying overnight in D.C...came upon this stylish hotel online and hoped it was as nice as the photo. It was a great match for our needs.Probably not if your with little ones. It's location 2 blocks from Union Station & the Metro Line came in handy for getting around reasonably and quickly. You can eat at the fancy hotel restaurant or grab a meal in one of the nearby pubs. Staff full of sugestions! Room was a nice size,quiet,clean,the service was helpful and friendly. Would definately go back.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Use the Metro Line subway system during your stay. The Union Station stop is very close by. We knew nothing about how to use such a system and became comfortable with it real soon. The Metro employees help you out in a friendly manor. It's fast,clean, and cheap"

Cute boutique hotel with an indie feel

In D.C. for a conference and fun afterwards. Can't beat this location, Union Station and the Capitol a short walk away. Cute, little boutique hotel with daily 5:00 wine hour, friendly staff and an Indie feel. LOVED IT!

Weekend trip to DC

This hotel is located just a block or two from Union Station, which makes it perfect if you're arriving in DC via Amtrak, Megabus, or some other transportation of that sort. It is located within walking distance of Capitol Hill. There's not too much in the way of dining around the hotel, but if you walk just a few blocks and get near Chinatown, that's when you will find more dining options than you will know what to do with. There's also lots of places to choose from to eat at in Union Station. Being within walking distance of Chinatown also means you are close to the Verizon Center, where the NHL and NBA play, and concerts are held. The hotel is also within walking distance of the White House, the monuments and the museums, but it's a further hike to all these things from the hotel than to Capitol Hill. It's doable, but wear comfortable shoes. That said, the hotel is near bus and metro lines, so you're good. We were there for a concert and sight-seeing, so being near the Verizon Center, Capitol Hill, and the White House area was perfect. Wifi in the room is not complimentary, unless you're a rewards member. That's disappointing. 24/7 gym is complimentary. In-house restaurant is pricey, though maybe not for the area. Check-in/check-out was easy. Room was very comfortable. Would've been nice to have had a DVD player in the room. All in all, I would definitely recommend this hotel to you, if you're looking for a hotel close to all the big DC sights. It was a great deal for us and we will be back.

Quiet, convenient, courteous

Our room was quiet and very clean and the location was near many attractions. Complementary happy hour with wine and live piano music were a nice touch. Our bathroom featured an excellent shower but the bathroom itself was very small with minimal counter space. Hotel ambiance was very nice and the staff were courteous.
