Highly regarded French restaurant located on-site
Daily facilities fee

The Kimpton George Hotel has modernity down pat, which becomes apparent when you take a stroll through the lobby amid bright colors and contemporary art. When dinnertime rolls around, head to the stylish in-house restaurant, Bistro Bis, which is popular with guests and locals alike for its French cuisine. Afterward, catch up on some much-needed relaxation inside your stylish accommodations, appointed with 48-inch flat-screen TVs, marble bathrooms and organic honor bars. You can also arrange for in-room spa treatments or work up a sweat in the 24-hour fitness center. Although this Kimpton property will require a good chunk of your vacation budget (it charges a daily $20 "facilities fee"), members of the Kimpton Karma loyalty program can save on fees for things like Wi-Fi access. You can find the Kimpton George Hotel near Union Station, just north of the U.S. Capitol.

  • Frommer's Very Highly Recommended
  • Fodor's Choice



We cannot tell a lie — D.C.'s first contemporary boutique hotel is still one of its best, and the public areas and stylishly soothing guest quarters still excel at providing a fun and funky alternative to the cookie-cutter chains.



The George's main clientele are weekday business people and weekend tourists, both of whom have agendas at the Capitol, a very pleasant 8-minute walk away.


The eight-story refurbished building, circa 1928, features an airy lobby that feels like a lounge space at a modern art museum, with floor-to-ceiling glass, touches of stainless steel, fossilized coral stone, ceramic and black granite floors, and original works by Andy Warhol's protégé, Steve Kaufman.

Washingtonian Magazine


As with all Kimpton hotels, Hotel George has a theme; its story is "Style, Leadership & Art." Style is apparent in its snazzy, metallic entrance off E Street as well as in its glass, stainless steel, and coral stone lobby. Leadership and art are covered by modern takes on portraits of President George Washington.
