So the positives are that the staff are friendly and the rooms are massive. The bed is as big as our room was in New York! Unfortunately a few things made me unable to rate this higher than average. We got a persistent 5am wake-up call that wasn't meant for us. The room wasn't made up when we got to... More

I have stayed at this hotel a few times. The staff is always friendly and helpful, the restaurant is amazing and is so close to many attractions. The bedrooms are quiet and comfortable and the rooms are all big with kitchens and living areas which are reallly an added bonus. The only thing that needs to change are the towels!... More

We stayed in one of the apartment sized rooms with a kitchenette. It was clean, comfortable, quiet, close to the Metro and to Whole Foods, great for cooking meals in what we consider to be an expensive city in which to eat out. No, it is not perfect - the carpets do need to be replaced, and it is in... More

Stayed here a single night to see a Kennedy Center show (a convenient five-minute walk away), returning home the next day. Hotel staff were perfectly friendly and professional. The physical plant isn't what we'd expect at this price point, though. The suite we stayed in (room #711) had a shabby, over-worn feel, a tub faucet that dripped continuously, and both... More

We arrived at our final destination on a 7 1/2 week trip around USA and Canada. We were given an upgrade to a suite which was just perfect for two tired travellers seeing Washington for the first time. The rooms were spacious and very comfortable with a nice kitchenette. We enjoyed it so much we ate in every evening! The... More

My daughter and I stayed at the George Washington University Inn while on a college visit. The location is outstanding. Many things of interest are within walking distance - a metro stop is only a block away. A Whole Foods Market is two blocks away - very convenient for morning coffee on our way out to see the city.

My son & I stayed here during GW orientation. It's an easy 4 blocks to the center of the campus. We felt safe going back and forth. Room was nice. Good sized frig and micro came in handy. Bathroom seems a bit small, lacking counter space which would be tight for more than 2 guests. At breakfast in hotel restaurant... More
