We were there over MLK weekend and couldn't have been more pleased. The location is great; a easy Metro or cab from DCA The hotel is a few minutes from the Foggy Bottom/GWU Metro stop and is in walking distance of Whole Foods, restaurants, The White House and of course GW. All the staff from the front desk to the... More

This is an old hotel but it is very well kept. Apart from being very well located (foggy bottom) it is also very affordable, BUT, the biggest asset is that it has very friendly and helpful staff!

We stayed here over a late January weekend. Hotel is 5 minute walk from Foggy Bottom Metro stop and 10-15 minute walk to M street in Georgetown with all the shopping and dining you could desire.

Hello Empim, We are pleased you enjoyed your stay with, us and found our amenities and location ideal for your DC weekend from Illinois. Great tips with regards to finding the hotel; with us being located in Historic Foggy Bottom, large signs are not permitted, as it would take away from the beautiful row of town homes.

We reserved a king suite through their Kennedy Center promotion and was not disappointed. Large room, within walking distance of great restaurants and the Kennedy Center - parked the car and did not use it again until we were ready to leave. Check in was a breeze. Staff very courteous and helpful. The rooms are large and ours included a... More

We stayed four nights at the George Washington Inn in December 2014. The price was very reasonable. It was well located, close to Metro station, within walking distance of Georgetown and the White House. The room was very comfortable and the facilities were excellent. The staff were very helpful. I would stay at the hotel again. Recommended.

Great place to stay when visiting Georgetown or the Kennedy Center. Not exactly the modern look of the big hotels but very nice in every way. We did the one bedroom suite for a very reasonable price for DC. With AAA they took half off the parking. You can't beat the staff. Must have regular training in friendliness. Dinner in... More

Stayed there last night for a show at the Kennedy Center. Nice, clean room. Comfortable beds. Clean bathroom Great view o the Potomac. Staff was very cordial and helpful. Highly recommend it. If you're driving there, go slowly, the sign is not apparent until you're there.

Just spent the New Year's week-end at this great hotel. My decision was mainly based on other Tripadvisor's reviews and don't regret a bit my stay there.

Knowing that D.C. can be pricey, we selected this for the convenience and price: both were reasonable. Kitchenettes are available, and well-stocked, with a full-sized fridge. Whole Foods and Trader Joe's are within easy walking distance. The Foggy Bottom metro station is a block away. A brisk walk takes you to the Mall, close to the Lincoln Memorial. Kennedy Center...

Positive experience at this inn. Staff most courteous and helpful. The room was clean and well equipped. Excellent restaurant in the hotel although independently managed. I was only there one night but I loved the neighborhood. We walked to the Kennedy Center which was the purpose of my trip. I felt safe walking to and from the Center at night.
