Our first stay was four years ago when we dropped our daughter off to GW Medical School. That visit was very exciting and a wonderful stay in the hotel. The staff were professional and personable. It seemed fit to come back to the hotel for her graduation on May 17th. From my first phone call, speaking with Vanessa, in reservations,... More

I was a little sceptical when I booked this hotel as I am used to staying in the big branded hotels. My concerns soon disappeared upon our arrival at the hotel. The staff were very friendly and efficient. The rooms are a little dated however very comfortable and clean. The main thing that hit me was the size of the... More

We chose the GWU Innl because of previous reviews stating the location was ideal. And it was! Being within walking distance to the Metro, National Mall, Whole Foods, drugstore, and restaurants was perfect. Will, Brenna, and Jim were awesome in helping us navigate our first time in DC. Our room was large, clean, comfortable with a great breakfast included in... More

The hotel was in a great location, the staff was amazingly helpful, pleasant & welcoming. we had the pleasure of iced water with fruit, apples and cookies always fresh and inviting. We loved the deck area for the evening. The room was satisfactory and comfortable but dated.

We stayed for one week and had a great experience. Room was clean and spacious. The staff was wonderful and customer service was better than any that I have seen in a long time. The location was perfect - very close to the Metro and a Whole Foods, among other things. I would definitely recommend GWU Inn to anyone.

We stayed here for 3 nights and we're pleasantly surprised with this hotel. The room was very spacious and clean. The hotel is only a short (10min) walk from the national mall, and down the road from the foggy bottom metro station. The staff were helpful and friendly.
