My sister and I stayed for an extended weekend of culture/great food and Michael Love, concierge, was fabulous. He quickly figured out what type of food we wanted to experience and made great recommendations. He was also really knowlegeable about more obscure items (good place for tea) as well as ways to make the trip more fun (the trolley service on really hot days!).
Jessy Scott, manager, also went above and beyond.
I'd stay there again.

We spent 3 nights at the Hotel George at the beginning of our trip up the coast to Boston. The hotel is very well presented, the staff as friendly and helpful as you could want (particularly Shana, who was the personification of charm and professionalism).

The hotel is well-located for the Capitol, White House, etc. and also Penn Station, which was useful as we were heading to Baltimore and New York, which are on a direct train line from Penn - see Amtrak timetables.

Be warned that it is quite a long way from Dulles airport to the centre of Washington, so if you have the time, take the train, as our taxi was pretty expensive.

We were in DC in the middle of a massive heatwave, and when we got back to the hotel they provided iced water etc to cool us down, and they do offer coffee and pastries to take to your room for breakfast if you don't want to pay for a full breakfast.

Dinner in the bistro attached to the hotel offers very good food (and is reputedly popular with the local politicians, senators, etc,) however it is very expensive, and we found our waitress to be over-attentive and intrusive; interrupting us when we were in the middle of a conversation, etc. which was pretty annoying.

If you walk out of the hotel and turn right, there is a liquor store on the opposite side of the road, so you can buy beers, soft drinks etc to store in the hotel minibars. Also, in the same direction there is a Starbucks on the corner of the next block.

This is not a great neighbourhood, and there seemed to be quite a lot of homeless people around, so do be careful if you go out at night. Don't wear conspicuous amounts of jewellery.

Whilst I don't have a problem with the hotel itself, which met my expectations, I have to say that next time I'm in Washington I'll stay in Georgetown/Foggy Bottom, which is more residential and peaceful, although a metro ride from the centre.

Overall, this is a welcoming hotel which offers good value for money.

I was at the Hotel George on a business trip, and this was my very first stay here. The staff was very welcoming, friendly, and helpful - making this stay a very pleasant one. The hotel is a short 2 blocks from Union Station and 2 blocks form the Capitol, so it's in a fabulous location for seeing the DC sites. Rooms are modern and best if all, totally ECO-friendly, with a recycling basket in each room. WAY TO GO, HOTEL GEORGE!

My friend and I spent one night at the Hotel George. It is conviently located to Union Station and the Capital. We stayed in a room with 2 queen beds and it was plenty roomy for the 2 of us. The one draw back was that the shower was on the small side. Once you draw the blinds no light gets into this room, it is very quiet and the beds are super comfy. I got a great nights sleep here!

In addition, the staff is very friendly and really go out of their way to make sure you stay is comfortable. We also grabbed a drink at the resturant bar and it was a great place to just relax with a drink.

General Manager, Christopher Cannon: Thank you for your business and for your feedback of the George. Our Shower and separate tub combination make our guest bathrooms spacious enough for families and multiple occupancy travelers. Bistro Bis is outstanding and one of Washington D.C.’s premier restaurants located just next door to the George. I look forward to having you stay with again soon.

very positive, great room, quiet, relaxing. everything was very pleasant. (My wife, who is Japanese and expects more than we Westerners would, also was very happy.) We stayed two nights and next time I go to DC on business will request travel department to put this hotel in over the JW Marriott - simply because it was smaller, friendlier and still had the services.
