a great location for sightseeing, close to beautiful georgetown for dining and to metro station for travel. friendly and helpful staff, and what must be the best breakfast in washington. although not the most architecturally attractive hotel, the other plus points more than make up for that.

We were traveling to DC to visit a student at GWU, and this hotel was listed on the university website. I took a chance and booked it even though I usually like to stay at namebrand hotels. The George Washington University Inn is a gem. We arrived at 1 p.m. on our first day, and before I could ask if... More

I had to travel to the DC area for a job interview and in my desperate search for a hotel to stay where I could be nearer to my job interview location I noticed finding one that would fit my budget was difficult. When I tried to book a flight and hotel combination thru expedia the prices were unreal and... More

Greetins Mina A, I hope you had a wonderful interview and got the job. I am happy you found our location convenient and our price just right. I’m glad you decided not to drive as Washington DC’s taxi and mass transient system is a convenient alternative, and easy to understand. Hope to see you the next time you are in... More

Spent two days in DC with accommodations at the GWU Inn. Very friendly, helpful staff particularly the car valet gentleman. Comfortable rooms. Easy access to the Metro. Close to Whole Foods which has very good take out food. Circa Foggy Bottom restaurant had good happy hour and close to the Inn. The Italian restaurant at the Inn was very good... More

The best mid-range hotel I have ever had the pleasure of staying in. The rather anonymous exterior hides a jewel of a hotel. Extremely friendly and unpretentious, it nonetheless provides a first rate experience. Our double room, with its traditional and discrete décor, was spacious, with ample storage space and the usual amenities. Additionally, the bathroom was separated from the... More

Our room was large with a full kitchen (surprise!). Location was great. Could not regulate the temperature. We did not eat at the hotel. Staff was polite and accommodating. They allowed us late check out and held our bags for the rest if the day.

Have stayed here twice now and find it convenient to GW. It is a bit hard to find but that adds to the experience. You get a large room/suite for your money but I do miss some of the touches of a better hotel like good towels and better in room coffee makers. The restaurant serving the hotel doesn't open... More

This property is well priced and perfectly located to visit GW. Hard to find in a residential area makes it more charming. The rooms are tired but you get a lot of space. The restaurant doesn't open until 8am on the weekends so walk to Wholefoods or Starbucks for an early coffee or morning snack. The heating and AC are... More

I have stayed at many hotels, but this has by far been the best service and courteous staff. The front desk staff and others went beyond helpful. I was welcomed each time I returned to the hotel. I definitely would stay here for business or pleasure.
