Hotel Rouge, A Kimpton Hotel Hotel Review: As the hotel's name suggests, red is the dominant theme here. From the awning beneath the sign outside to the color scheme throughout the lobby and hallways, rouge is everywhere. This striking décor is playful and sets a tone that is a welcome alternative to the typical ho hum looks found in many DC lodgings. Guests enjoy complimentary beverages all day long, from Bloody Marys in the morning to first-call wine at happy hour; sweetening the pot is an in-room coffee maker with Starbucks coffee. In your mini bar, you'll find an extension of the ruby-esque motif---who knew there were so many kinds of crimson goodies available? Naturally, guest room furniture, wall coverings and bed dressings all come in various shades of red. Contradicting the possibility that this establishment might be all play and no work is the huge mahogany desk and comfortable workspace in each room. The Dupont Circle neighborhood attracts an artsy crowd, which is drawn to the lively music scene at the hotel's bar and lounge.
