The George, A Kimpton Hotel
The founding fathers would flip their wigs over this funky modern hotel.
When one envisions politicians, the style that comes to mind is staid and somber. That is what makes this Capitol Hill Business District property such a pleasant surprise. Imagine a union between Andy Warhol and the founding fathers. In fact, you'll even see a nod to Warhol's signature style in silkscreen portraits of Washington that hang on the walls. This hotel does a steady corporate business and is busiest from September through November. The building is vintage, dating back to 1928, but the interior is pure 21st century. Chrome, glass and granite play a starring role in the décor. The 139 guest rooms and suites are simply and tastefully outfitted, with earth-toned floors, lots of white, Frette linens, cozy duvets, 48-inch LED TVs and complimentary Wi-Fi --- not to mention wallpaper that incorporates George Washington's inaugural address. For health-minded travelers, this pet-friendly hotel offers a 24-hour fitness center and public bikes. Slick meeting spaces include board and banquet rooms. In typical Kimpton fashion, the hotel offers a free evening wine hour. With its zinc bar, tile floor and innovative cuisine, Bistro Bis gives a respectful nod to the classic French bistro. If you're looking to socialize with senators and congressmen, book a table here.
