We have stayed here a lot as we have a student here. They now know us (and my parents!) by name! The staff is top notch! They go out of their way for everything! The rates are reasonable! The location is central to everything- metro, market, monuments! We will never stay anywhere else!

This was quite a memorable visit. Staff membres, from the front door, housekeeping (Kenny), front desk (any time of the day or night), to the kitchen staff, made me feel very cozy. The hotel is not fancy in the sense that it does not have steam, sauna, or pool. But, to provide a cozy atmosphere, and make you feel as... More

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
