“Functional and well located?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013 via mobile

Located in Washington Circle crossing Pennsylvania Avenue it's ideally located to get around the tourist attractions. Situated in the Foggy Bottom area there are plenty of transport options if walking is not for you. Buses pass frequently in all directions with The White House one way down Pennsylvania Avenue and Georgetown the other. The hotel is functional if a little dated. Rooms have a separate kitchenette area well equipped with fridge, cooker etc and tea and coffee is supplied.

While the exterior of the property isn't that striking, rooms were nice and quite roomy. The location is decent, depending on what your destination is. If visiting GWU, would recommend checking availability at GW University Inn first, then One Washington if GWU Inn isn't available. Short walk to Metro and

Driving into the hotel was not sure what to expect - the hotel looks a little aged but renovated. Staff were all so nice. Hotel was clean but a little old fashioned. The plumbing in the shower was bit off but otherwise a very comfortable hotel in an excellent locations as the hop-on, hop-off bus picks you up from right outside.

This hotel was great! It's within walking distance to lots of restaurants, the Metro and Whole Foods which comes in handy as there's a small kitchen in the rooms. There is also a terrace off most rooms which was nice for evening cocktails! Across the circle is a hospital so expect sirens! The hotel has a super friendly staff, very helpful in suggesting restaurants! The decor is nice but the carpets need a deep cleaning or a replacement. We stayed at a different hotel on the last night of our trip and really missed this one.

Absolutely LOVE this hotel and their staff!! Our family has stayed at OWC on multiple occasions as our daughter attends GWU. The staff are amazing and cannot do enough for you!! From getting a cab to finding us just the right place to dine to friendly room service to a "Good morning Mary Anne" (yes, they know me by name!!!) to remembering that our daughter is a student in DC - you can't ask for more!! We travel a great deal and the folks here make you feel at home. The rooms are always clean, the lobby bright and, need I say - the front desk staff - AMAZING!!

I was looking for aplace close to Penn Ave m street. Ended up in this pleasant place, with very friendly personel. This was in 2005, 2006 and 2007. Recently I returned. Nothing changed that was good. In the rooms nothing had changed as well, a renovation is really necessary. Remains the fine location and the excellent and helpfull staff. Do also visit the restaurant, it it surprisingly good and french dood comes close to what it should be.

Me and my husband stayed here for 3 nites for a pleasure trip to DC. Location is very near the Foggy Bottom Metro; close to Whole Foods and other restaurants. Bus station is very close also - just across Metro. Hotel rooms are spacious equipped with kitchen utensils (had I known- could have brought some instant soup). Very good coffee because you grind the beans yourself just before brewing. Excellent place to stay.
