The hotel is the best starting point to explore the capital of the US! It is conveniently located near Foggy Bottom metro stattion, That allows easy ride to Dulles airport and almost any destination in DC, Va and Md one would wish to visit. Moderate proces, comfortable rooms with all amenities. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

We were in DC for an admitted student day at GWU. We arrived very late. And there was some issue w/ the hotel's AC system. However, the front desk went out of her way to accommodate us. We just opened the windows and the room temp was fine. We were very pleased and will look to stay again as our... More

We are finishing our stay in DC and have been thoroughly pleased with the service and accommodation at the George Washington University Inn. Just an easy 2 block walk from the Foggy Bottom metro station, this is a very convenient location for sightseeing trips. There is a Whole Foods store about a block away, to collect groceries and supplies for... More

My husband and I booked a room here last minute because we weren't sure if we would be able to make it to DC this past weekend due to our 5 month old baby. I called the hotel an hour after booking to ask if we could check-in early because I am breastfeeding. Unfortunately, because they were fully booked the... More

The GWU Inn was a really nice hotel, with affordable rates. The staff was very helpful, the rooms were nice and clean, the beds were super comfy and the location was very convenient for sightseeing. The metro stop and a wide variety of places to eat are right up the street. I would definitely reccommend the GWU Inn, and would... More

We stayed in a large suite with a king bed (extremely comfortable) a separate living room, and a small kitchen area which was perfect for us. This hotel is within easy walking distance to the National Mall, Georgetown shopping, many restaurants, and Whole Foods. There is a metro stop a block away. What makes the GWU Inn so special is...

To start with very helpful and friendly staff. Hotel room was very clean and big equipped with clean and nice furniture, but especially loved the big size comfortable bed and clean bathroom. In short, I loved my short stay at this hotel and I will consider staying at this charming hotel if I visit DC again.

Thank you to everyone for a wonderful stay. We stopped by early and hoped to leave our bags but we're directly given a room and I think it must have been the best in the house. What a comfortable place. Not an elegant glitzy hotel, but if this hotel doesn't have what you want you surely can get along without... More

Loved our stay at this charming hotel with the most wonderful front desk personnel. A short walk from the Kennedy Center and the Foggy Bottom metro stop. Quiet, comfortable room. Definitely returning to this gem.
