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.

The generously sized rooms come in a range of standard rooms with king and queen sized beds and suites with expanded living facilities. The deluxe rooms offer around 270 square feet of spa e, with comfortable platform beds and full range of extras including a granite topped desk, 32 inch plasma TV that is tastefully hidden when not needed, and sunken tub in the bathroom for a relaxing soak. Queen rooms include an extra bed, perfect for families or traveling groups.

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.

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.

Excellent location.

Steps from the capital or Union Station, the George was contemporary without being trendy. The staff was professional but relaxed as was our stay.

Cousins capital reunion

The staff was outstanding with smiles and a sincere interaction that I found welcoming, which is sometimes lacking at city hotels. Location to capital, museums and sites were good with minimal taxi need. Hotel even gave a runners map ..... I loved that touch. Weather was 72 ...go figure for November??. Even cabbies were friendly! What an unexpected switch.

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.
