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

fire alarms

Room was smallish but nicely appointed.TV was impossible to watch from bed.Fire alarms went off at 1:30 am because of water blow out on 8th floor.Evacuated out of our rooms for 2 hours plus.No water for shower in the morning.No discount or gesture on the bill.Won't stay there again.

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

Adequate stay

It was unfortunate timing our trip was during the govt shutdown so the city was dead. The location is great, right next to the train station. The restaurant in the lobby is kind of overpriced. The tv reception shouldn't be that bad for the price per night. The hotel was clean, and the staff were friendly and accomodating though.

Made mistakes but addressed them well

This is a lovely hotel - would have probably given it a higher rating but there were a number of mishaps. We arrived at 1:30 and they said we wouldn't be able to check in until 3pm. Fine, as expected. We got back to the hotel from sightseeing at about 4:45 and the room was still not ready (first they said it was, but sent us to a room without the foldout couch for my daughter that they had promised when we arrived#. We waited until close to six in the lobby to check in, along with many, many others. The upside is that they were not only very civil and very apologetic but they comped our first night there as a result. All staff were trying incredibly hard to make amends. Room was very nice, moderately quiet for a city location, a bit tight with the fold out couch but comfortable. The first morning an overhead alarm with a light went off in our room and woke us up. I went to let the staff know about it, and they apologized and offered to buy us breakfast at the attached restaurant, no small thing given how expensive the place was #breakfast for two was $45 including tip, and we ordered minimally).

Great location

This was a small hotel in an older building. It's been updated and is a bit too art deco for me. The restaurant here was great though, very high quality. [...] It was clean but noisy at times from sirens and street noise. It would have been even better after a hot day walking the city if there was a pool to relax in. The staff was very nice and accomodating. Bottom line, great location, nice hotel, just don't pay the web site prices, if you can get it for a deal, it's worth it.

Hotel George

The hotel was fine. The room was a bit small and I couldn't get from one end to the other without moving a desk chair. The maid failed to make up the room my second day. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean and the lobby staff very friendly.

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.
