Very hospitable and friendly staff. Room nice size, clean and well equipped - a bit musty but opening the window well solved that - sure it is age of hotel. Great location very convenient to downtown DC and of course really close to GW University and the metro. Restaurant was good but struggled badly when surprised by a very large... More

I was really excited about visiting DC during the cherry blossom festival but finding an affordable hotel with walking distance to all the attractions was challenging. After much research I booked the George Washington Univ Inn - again mainly due to price per night and proximity to attractions. Don't get me wrong, the per night pricing was not cheap in... More

I will start with the positive. The GWU Inn has an amazing staff who are friendly, extremely helpful and will go out of their way to make your stay comfortable. I give the staff 5 stars without hesitation. The location is great for visiting the University which is why we were there. The rooms however, leave a lot to be... More

Impeccable service, good location and consistently accommodating. I was allowed to check in a little early and leave my car. Very helpful and knowledgeable staff. Room was clean and spacious. I will definitely stay here next time I am in town to visit.

This is a very nice hotel, convenient to much that DC has to offer. It reminds me of an European boutique hotel but with American amenities. My wife and I are on a romantic trip and this hotel fits the bill perfectly. I travel for business fairly often and this would also be a good choice for business travel. Since... More

This was my fourth or fifth stay here - the others were for GWU events; this time I came back to DC for Kennedy Center performances. Enjoyed pre-theater dinner and one breakfast at Notti Bianchi. Handy having a kitchen - Whole Foods & a Seven Eleven (which is open 24 hours) right nearby. Everyone helpful & friendly - more like... More

Located in historic Foggy Bottom, right by GWU and walking distance from Georgetown, the waterfront, the mall and monuments, etc... There is a Whole Food Market on GWU campus. Rooms are really nice. The decor is not modern but the room was very clean and everything was in excellent working order. We had a suite with fully equiped kitchen and... More

I would like to have rated this property higher -- the front desk staff's positive attitude and genuine hospitality should serve as a gold standard for the industry. The room was furnished comfortably with a bed, desk/chair, chair/ottoman/side table, flat screen TV, coffee maker, a combination microwave-mini-freezer/refrigerator (freezer is totally separate from the refrigerator), and fast, free wi-fi. The hotel... More

First visit to the GWU Inn and it was great. Location can't be beat, but a little oasis of calm and caring in the city. Awesome staff that takes care of the details, spacious rooms. Perhaps the decor is not the most "mod", but everything clean, comfortable and accessible. Plus, the staff really does make all the difference. And great... More
