Chic, intimate, and, filled with verve, the Hotel George, located on Capitol Hill, is perfectly suited for demanding business travelers, tourists and connoisseurs of style. This modernist boutique hotel, a Klimpton Hotel, is a standout for its style amongst the multitude of traditional and chain hotels found throughout Washington, DC.

Rising above the competition for style is not enough for the Hotel George; a modern attitude for service also prevails here. Warm, efficient and attentive, the associates get to know each guest, and remember to follow up on suggestions or service they have received. From tourist directions and sightseeing suggestions to the demands of the business traveler, guests’ needs are seamlessly attended to.

Each of the 139 spacious guestrooms is appointed in a modernist style. A crisp white duvet covers the bed, while an oversized and colorful silkscreen of a dollar bill - complete with the hotel's namesake featured in the center - hangs over the beds. The numerous well-appointed amenities, understated color palette set off by bold accents, and exceptionally comfortable furnishings all work together to make the chic guestrooms feel both residential and inviting.

The gleaming white marble two-story interior, lined with chrome railings, is adorned with bold red and blue accents that elevate the reception area to a VIP runway. With timeless elegance, a black grand piano anchors the stylish reception area, while the original modern artwork adds many captivating points of interest. In the evenings, complimentary wine is served in the billiard room located on the mezzanine.

The hotel also boasts a modern and stylish, highly acclaimed French bistro, Bistro Bis, which is visible from the lobby and beckons hotel guests to mingle with Washington's café society. Although there are many secrets that make “DC” a city of intrigue, there is no mystery as to why Bistro Bis attracts senators, congressmen, powerbrokers, celebrities and gourmands.

Chef Jeffery Buden has created a handsome destination restaurant; his innovative interpretations of classic French bistro fare have made the Bistro Bis one of DC's most popular restaurants. Political tensions and power-wielding undoubtedly add excitement to the ambience of this respected DC haunt, but it is the fine cuisine and excellent service that have earned Bistro Bis many accolades and awards. A stay at the Hotel George will feel like a luxurious personal treat, and dining at Bistro Bis will be your just reward!
