Staff were excellent, friendly and accommodating. However, when Southwest airlines cancelled our flight, we had to book an extra night with the hotel and the rate we were given for the same room was nearly $100 more. But we had to accept it because our flight was cancelled last minute and it was too hard to find another hotel.

I booked this hotel relatively blindly,mostly based on price. I was pleasantly surprised. There was a large kitchen area with fridge, microwave, burners, and a lot of kitchen equipment. I didn't cook, only used the microwave. There was a living area with couch, tv and desk. The bedroom had a second tv. There was plenty of closet space. The only... More

I like the hotel a lot. The staff is very helpful, the restaurant is superb and the rooms are very comfortable. It is conveniently located for getting around the city with the metro nearby, taxis readily available and a Whole Foods a block away. It has a nice exercise room and 24 hour access to its business center.

I needed a week getaway, so I chose Washington DC. Everything was organised by Flight Centre, Perth, Western Australia. Had a small problem getting here (delayed flight, shuttle not turning up), but once I got settled in I have got to love DC. Getting a Metro 7 day short trip pass was a good idea, I can really get out... More

Great location less than five minutes from Foggy Bottom metra; about twenty minutes walk to Lincoln Memorial and White House. Very helpful and friendly staff with special thanks to valet staff. Clean, quiet and comfortable rooms.

The GWU Inn is a small and friendly hotel perfectly situated in the historic and peaceful area of Foggy Bottom just a few minutes walk from the metro. My room was large and very comfortable with an excellent shower. It's true that the decoration is a little shabby and old fashioned, but for me this adds to the charm. I... More

Room design and decor were very much to my liking enabling me to settle in quickly. Sadly outside of room and hotel noise did interrupt my stay at times-quiet midnight to 7am. Located in Foggy Bottom the hotel is surrounded by old world homes with cute gardens. Streets are tree-lined with squirrels scurrying beneath.

I would definitely stay here again. The location is perfect - you don't feel like you're amid the hustle and bustle of the city, and yet you're super close to everything. The Metro is literally a 3 minute walk, and the hotel is surrounded by lots of great restaurants. We always felt safe. The hotel is a little dated, but... More
