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 Accomodation

This hotel is very well situated; the staff is friendly and helpful; the dining room is outstanding; and the only mild dissatisfaction is that the room was very small.

Excellent for family or business travel

The George is coveniently located in between Union Station and the Capitol. The room was very comfortable and spacious enough for a family of six. Everyone enjoyed the. George Washington themed decor. The bathroom was quiet luxurious with separate bath and shower. We were very pleased with every aspect of our stay here.

Don't buy bus tours. A big waste of money. Hot. Inconvenience. Waiting time. Crappie. A lot easier and cheaper to take cabs, ~$8 to any attraction.

Perfect Boutique Hotel

Perfect location, very friendly and extremely helpful staff! We arrived very early, and of course we knew or room wouldn't be ready (8:30 am), but they took our luggage and we started our day. We came back at around 11:00 to get something from the suitcase and were told our room was ready! The room was newly renovated and was just perfect! The location was right near Union Station, and a 5 minute walk to Capitol Hill. Every night if you were at the hotel between 5-6 they had wine and Sangria, in the lobby. Definitely a perfect place to stay in Washington!

Great service

We took a train from NJ to get to DC, and the GEORGE is so conveniently located, we were able to walk there in under 5 minutes. When we got there, we were so pleasantly surprised with the great service, decor and cleanliness of the hotel. They offer a free cocktail hour for the guests, which we loved! The room was spacious, and brilliantly decorated. The service is so great that if you forget some toiletries, they would supply you with them.. And they even offer to go get it for you if it's something they cannot give you on the spot. It is close to so many tourist attractions and great restaurants! We both said next time we go to DC we are staying there again.. And when we stay at other places we will look for kimptongroup hotels.

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.
