We have stayed at this hotel numerous times during our trips to Washington, DC. The staff is extremely helpful and accommodating always greeting us by name. We have never been disappointed in any aspect of our stay. Being located in the Foggy Bottom makes it even more perfect.

The are of the hotel is a bit of a walk from the main sites, but is very old and beautiful. The hotel itself is all you can ask for (no luxury, but a good level). The hotel also has very good attitude towards pets. My little dog had very good time also ;)

I've stayed at this hotel several times now so I can say with some certainty that the staff are some of the best and most consistent of the many places that I've stayed over the years. Even the painter in the hallway was polite, courteous and friendly. Good friendly service is something that you can count on. The GWUI is... More

My family and I stayed at the George Washington University Inn in August this year. The staff were amazing and gave us a free upgrade to a spacious 1 bedroom self contained room. The freshly baked cookies every morning were a plus for the kids. The Inn is about 2 mins walk to the foggy bottom metro station and there... More

We stayed in a family suite for 2 nights, with 2 kids. The room was spacious, a bit old, but it did not disturb. Clean and convenient. Big kitchenette, good bed in the sleeping room, a bit older sofa in the sitting room. Looks a bit modest outside, but is ok when you enter. Great staff, great location, you can... More

Very spacious room at the George Washington University Inn, in the heart of Foggy Bottom, only 10 minutes walk to either the White House or Lincoln Memorial.

Perfect location on the George Washington University campus in the heart of Foggy Bottom. Older rooms but knowledgable, friendly, helpful, professional staff more than make up for it. Just a block or so from the Metro, Whole Foods and great restaurants plus a short stroll to Georgetown.

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.

Georgetown being only a 10-15 minute walk as well as only being two blocks away from the Foggy Bottom Metro station (Blue & Orange Line) are... More
