We just arrived in our hotel in Clearfieldd Pensilvania. After hours of driving through small towns and nothingness, well, we haven't gotten through that yet. We went to this fast food steak house (something I never thought I'd experience) called Ponderosa and although the steak wasn't the best, it came with a buffet and pandit was a …

Arrived surprisingly on time in DC, despite delays. It was a short flight - only 53minutes (or so the pilot claimed). When I arrived, I tried to call my car service only to find the number wasn’t working. Undaunted, I headed out to the meeting point. I figured worst case I wait a while then get a shuttle. Fortunately, he turned up, and soon I …

... a new one in the first place. The holocaust museum was very confronting. It was very packed therefore we didn't get to ready everything but I read enough. Enough to learn more then I wanted and feel very ill and unsettled about the grotesque mistreating of so many people. As we walked in we got given an ID card of person affected by the Nazis. It then started with the rise of Hitler and then the rise of the Nazi power and the introduction of the Gestapo. What Hitler ...

Today was very cool. We walked around D.C. all day and saw so many amazing things. My favorite things today were the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial, and the Capitol building.The Capitol was the first thing we saw and it was a lot bigger than I thought it would be. When we walked up to the Washington Monument they were sold out of tickets to ride to the top. We asked someone how much it costs and he said it is free and he had 2 extra tickets that he gave to us. The ride to the ...

... He is such a wealth of knowledge! We went to the Star Spangled Banner exhibit. It was my favorite, and gave me chills and goosebumps the size of the orange eggs you get on top of sushi!! No lie! Francis Scott Key wrote the Star Spangled Banner when he was a prisoner of the British when they were attacking Fort McHenry (I think). They didn’t want to kill him as he was a civilian, but they didn’t want to let him go either as he had seen all of ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel George, a Kimpton Hotel Washington DC

    Would recommend, but a few concerns

    from

    Stayed at the George for 4 nights over Memorial Day weekend.

    Enjoyed the very modern Hotel George.

    from

    I am 13, and we have stayed at alot of hotels with my family. We have stayed at 5 stars to types like the Holiday Inn. I give Hotel George a 9 out of 10. The rooms were spacious and comfortable for the 5 of us. We had 2 beds and a sleeper sofa. The staff was very child friendly, and they let us play their grand piano. And best of all, they have high speed internet accessible from the rooms. The bathrooms were very nicely done with a marble shower and a tub. This is a great hotel to stay at. It's a very quiet hotel in a central location right next to Union Square. It's also close to the Capitol building. We didn't try eating at the resteraunt so no comment there. Our view overlooked a parking lot, but that was alright since we weren't in the room alot. They also had a billards room -pool. We really enjoyed our stay there.

    Loved the hotel,but check your credit card statement!!!

    from

    We stayed at the George between Christmas and New year 2003.Everything about the trip was great until i got my credit card statement last week!The hotel George charged my card for 4 nights accomodation even thought I was on a package with a UK tour operator.I e-mailed the george only to be fed a line about it being the tour operators fault and that I should chase the tour operator for a refund.

    Thompsons holidays have so far been fantastic in sorting out the problem,the george have stopped replying to my e-mails.

    I'll keep you posted!

    Pretty good, except for the restaurant

    from

    Spent 4 days during Easter at George. It was generally a very pleasant experience, from check-in to check-out. My partner and I signed up for the Undercover Package, which included tickets to the Intl Spy Museum, and a quiz which promised a bottle of wine from New Zealand upon successful completion. Well, we didn't get all the answers correct, but the staff was nice enough to give it to us anyway (although the wine really wasn't much to shout about).

    Cherry Blossoms at The George

    from

    Staff was first rate. They took care of all our requests with a positive can do attitude. They met all their commitments and followed up in a professional manner.

    Location was awesome. We were a short walk to the Capitol, the mall with all the Smithsonian museums and great restaurants. Charlie Palmer's is 5 minutes away.

    Room was hip and spacious. Gym was fine for a small hotel. Billiard room great. Bis restaurant was a happening nightspot.

    Will stay there again.

    Mixed Feelings

    from

    Well, the rooms were beautiful, and all in all my stay was lovely.

    However, when I booked with central reservations, they made a reservation for the previous weekend instead of the weekend I was meant to stay. This took hours on the phone to get no show changes off my card, and to get a room booked for the correct weekend. Plus, I had asked for a room with a bathtub, and it took them three tries to finally find a room with a tub. The management while very nice, doesn't seem to be very organized, and made a simple mistake into something very confusing. The hotel is beautiful though, and extremely convenient (it's a block from union station) however I think next time, I would make my reservations with the in-house reservation people rather than central reservations.

    Great choice

    from

    Hotel George is very modern, contemporary and well worth all the hype.

    We had first heard about the hotel on the Discovery channel's travel show. The room was clean, large, a home away from home. I especially loved the bathroom and the nice products. The service was courtesy and you can't beat the restaurant. Very pricey but the endive salad is to die for.

    Hotel George is also just a few minutes from the metro which my husband and I found very convenient. You can get downtown from the metro station. At night, the location is very quiet so you might consider that when you book.

    Loved The George

    from

    We have stayed at several Washington DC hotels in the last three years, but we have found our favorite. We had a wonderful three night stay here. The staff was very helpful; in some cases they literally came running to be of service. The location is ideal. It is only a short walk to the Capitol and the Mall and very close to Union Station. There is an attention to detail at this hotel that we have come to expect in a first class hotel. Good linens, good room service, Aveda bath products. We will definately stay here again.

    Very stylish, convenient location

    from

    Stayed here as part of a conference, so rooms were half-price. Unlike the chain hotels, this place had attractive, comfortable rooms with more than adequate lighting. The in-house restaurant is on the expensive side, but there Union Station is close by and it has both a food court (which I tend not to care for) and a Metro stop. I don't know if I'd stay here at the full room rate, which is over $300/night, but they do have weekend deals.

    The staff was also very helpful, and whole place was well-maintained.

    Will not give refund

    from

    In sept. 2002, I was charged for a hotel room even though my reservation was for Oct. 10th. I phoned when this showed up on by bank account and began a hopeless effort to get this money back. We stayed at the George from the 10th of Oct. until the 12th and paid in full. Never the less, we have been unable to get the George Hotel to refund our money that was obtained wrongfully.
