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

We were there for two days and only saw the highlights of Washington DC. If you want to explore the museums, etc., plan on spending several days there.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
