Good accommodations, good area, convenient, simple, friendly. The room was spacious enough, had a kitchen area as well as a couch with a pullout bed. I was on the top floor and the view was relatively good. No-one was ever overbearing or overly 'hotelesque'. Just simple and straightforward, perfect if you want to be able to visit DC's monuments and... More

We stayed here during a visit to the DC area. When checking in for our room with double beds, the room wasn't available that day but we were upgraded to a king suite for the same cost. The front desk staff was extremely respectful and helpful throughout our visit. The location was less than 2 blocks from the Foggy Bottom... More

This hotel is 2 blocks from the Foggy Bottom Metro, in a nice neighborhood, is quiet and the rooms are nice. You could not ask for a better hotel in the D.C. area for this price. The staff is very helpful. The only reason I did not give them 5 stars is the bathroom needs more storage or at least... More

My wife and I came to visit our daughter, a senior at GW, over the weekend. Arrived Saturday morning and departed Sunday afternoon. Service, rooms, everything were wonderful - highly recommend. Top doormen service in a tight spot!

Stayed at the GWU Inn while attending a conference at GW. Had a terrible journey in with road closures and rain and some unfortunate wrong turns so I was frazzled upon arrival. I could not have asked for a warmer welcome from the valet. He was calming and so sweet. The front desk was manned by an equally kind and... More

Good value, friendly staff, and conveniently located near Foggy Bottom Metro stop. Highly recommended. Best deal I could find on a recent night when I was snowed in DC. Enjoy breakfast at Founding Farmers just a few blocks away.

We had very good time in this hotel. Location is great. 5 min walk to foggy bottom metro station, and walking distance to Kennedy center and Lincoln memorial. From Reagan airport, it is very easy to get to the hotel by metro. Taxi is around 20 dollars. The room was big and clean. We had no difficulties sleeping and the... More

The George Washington University Inn is tucked away on a residential street in D.C., around the corner from GW University. The suites are perfect for a family, whether visiting the university or Washington in general. The front desk personnel are welcoming and friendly, and the bellman always has a smile on his face. The rooms are clean, beds are comfortable,... More
