3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Location was excellent. Unfortunately the noise levels resulted in a very poor sleep for 2 of the 3 nights. Many of the guests were young people and although well behaved, it was noisy. Could also be poor sound proofing in the building.

Stayed here four nights while touring the area. The front desk staff was very helpful in giving us tips to,get around and negotiate the Metro trains. Property is older and many of the carpets and fixtures readily reveal that. Room was clean and bedding was very comfortable. Bathroom fixtures are very outdated and sometimes not easy to operate.

Close to metro station, they have complimentary bikes for clients. People in front desk is very kind. I think they shpuld be more careful with people with disabilities. the restaurant besides the hotel is not so good.

The GWUI is well placed within walking distance of the mall. The hotel is like a home away from home with a homely lobby rather than a big austentaious setup. The room we had was relatively large with all necessary amenities, clean and well maintained. The bed was king size and very comfortable. Staff were friendly and efficient.

What a lovely and unexpected surprise. The hotel staff is friendly. Breakfast was great (service and food). Property is conveniently located. Rooms are very spacious and well-appointed. My only disappointment is that I didn't get to stay longer!

The GWU Inn was exceptionally clean and well managed. Staff were pleasant throughout our 7 day stay. Very good location for access to the Metro (Foggy Bottom Metro Station). Best food can be located at Whole Foods up the road near the Metro Station, or within the GWU Campus. Could not find a local grocery store though. Whole Foods sold... More

Very welcoming at reception. Room clean, comfortable bed and very spacious. Close to Subway and within walking distance of major Washington attractions. Good value for money. Wholefoods and some restaurants nearby. In a nice quiet area. Cool to be close to a university and see all the students. Nice atmosphere to be in.
