The Hotel George Review: When one envisions politicians, the style that comes to mind is staid and somber, involving lots of dark colors. 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 and Lincoln 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 decorated, with earth-toned floors and lots of white linens, including cozy duvets. For upscale amenities, look no further. T1 lines for high-speed Internet access, cordless phones and stereo CD players are just the beginning. Slick meeting spaces include board and banquet rooms. 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 hobnob with senators and congressman, book a table here.
