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

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

Great for walking everywhere!

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.

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.

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"

Overnight at the George

Very attentive and friendly staff, very clean rooms and modern appointments but, the heater in my room on this chilly night was too loud each time it fired up.

Hotel George 10/23/09-10/25/09

The staff was extrememly friendly and very eager to respond to any inquiry or need. The hotel room was furnished very nicely, was clean and the bed was extremely comfortable. We requested a later check out time and they granted our request immediately. The Hotel location was perfect with direct access to Union Station to ride the metro, enjoy a meal or do some shopping. It is also in walking distance to the Capital, surrounding buildings and the Washington Mall. We were very pleased with everything and will stay at this hotel again.

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.

Pretty good hotel

Went during last weekend of Cherry Blossom Festival. Hotel staff was very accomodating and friendly. Room was smaller than I thought it would be. That being said, it was very clean and nice. The comment of "Noisy" had to do more with the air conditioner system than the noise outside of the room or hotel. Overall a great place due to its proximity from the train station.

A great small hotel experience

The room was fine, but it was the helpfulness of the staff that was particularly appreciated. My daughter and infant grandson stopped by for a short visit and the staff immediately provided a crib and took care of parking my daughter's car. I'll definately select the Hotel George for my next trip to DC.

Stylish & Comfortable

The hotel was clean, well maintained and the staff was very attentive. The location was was not very convenient to the Convention Center but was a block from the Capital. The in-house restaurant, Bistro Bis, was excellent.
