Moved daughter out of summer apt. Valet parking was great and with an AAA membership it was half price!!! Convenient location and relatively short walk to the Kennedy Center and Lincoln Memorial. Our room was very large and roomy.

I didn't like very much, but I have to say this was a very comfortable hotel. If you are able to walk, you can reach public transportation in 10 minutes. There are many restaurants ans markets nearby.

It was very clean and located close to the metro station so I loved the location. Service was also great, they were very accommodating. The only disappointment is no complimentary breakfast and please don't waste your money at the adjunct restaurant it's both expensive and terrible-- the breakfast food and dinner. On the upside there's a 7/11 on the same... More

This is my first stay at this establishment and I must say the rooms are clean and kept in excellent condition. I have stayed in five star hotels in the area and I must say this one is equal to them for the price. Located in Foggy Bottom, it is near many wonderful restaurants and the University.

As a family of 4 , we went for the suite (large living room, kitchen corner and bedroom). Although the furniture felt a bit too old style, this worked very well and felt comfortable. Staff are friendly, helpful and efficient. The neighborhood is very interesting: in foggy bottom, a few steps away from the renowned Watergate building, a short walk... More

We booked a one-bedroom suite at the GWU Inn from a Friday to a Wednesday for our family of four (two adults, a teen and a pre-teen). When we arrived, it was evening and fairly chaotic - There was one man working the front desk and another man who appeared to be doing double duty as valet and bellhop. We... More
