We stayed one night as a family of four for a college visit. It is a very good location for visiting George Washington, Georgetown and American Universities. It is almost on the campus of GWU. It was clean, quiet and convenient and the staff was friendly. Check-in was slow...a large group had arrived just before us and the each checked... More

I had an easy ten minute walk from the Foggy Bottom metro stop on a nice fall day. The George Washington University area is very charming. There is a Starbucks next door as well as a Subway. The staff was helpful and friendly. I asked for an upper level room that was quiet. The room was comfortable. There was a... More

I live just outside of DC, only about 12 miles away from this location, but my wife & I stayed here one night as we were attending a wedding at DAR Constitution Hall.

Pretty nice hotel- Parking was too expensive as expected. The room was nice, and clean. The staff was helpful enough. It seemed like it was more of a business hotel, than a vacation hotel. There was not free breakfast and the restaurant was rather expensive for what it was. There is a good deli a block away though that was... More

Went for an interview at George Washington University and stayed here since it's walking distance to the campus. It's also very affordable--I paid less than $100 per night. That's a steal in pricey DC! It's not a luxury hotel but it's just the right hotel for a vacation or business trip. It's also very close to the the main attractions,... More

We visited Washington DC as tourists and the location of the hotel was perfect for seeing all of the sites, getting to the Metro or to the DC Circulator.

It is a Courtyard, a guess the more simple and cheap for Marriott chain. It is a 3 stars hotel, without room service or similar but it is clean, very well located for who has students in GWU. Close you can find a CVS, and Starbucks at the corner but no restaurants close. Service friendly. Avoid the breakfast there.

I stayed here for a week while on business in DC. The hotel is in a good central location, with everything either in walking distance, or by Metro. The cab ride from Reagan National was only $16.00.
