“Great location but average quality rooms.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013

One under advertised aspect is "The Faculty" restaurant located in the conference center which is wonderful for breakfast. The Epicurean cafeteria style restaurant on site is horrible and should be avoided for breakfast.

The hotel is clean and comfortable but you come here because your child attends Georgetown(or you are interviewing).It is on campus so it really doesn't make sense to stay elsewhere (clearly closer). The prices are reasonable for the area (unless you want to spend $500 in Georgetown and walk). The entrance is tricky to find: entrance #1 of the hospital on Reservoir Road (follow the signs to the cancer center) then park in the garage and take the elevator up one flight to the lobby. It is part of the Leavey student center. I rent a car from DCA or Dulles. (It's 15-20 min to Reagan and 40 min to Dulles).. If you are going to take an OUTGOING taxi you need to order one at the desk, there's not always one ready...or walk down to the Healey Gates and take one from there,. If you want to eat: you can buy groceries from "Vital Vittles" the student-run grocery store in Leavey; or order room service until 11pm (burger or sandwich) or walk across the street to Epicurean student dining hall; or make reservations on M street and walk for 15-20 min.

The room I stayed in had two double beds. The rooms were clean, nicely decorated and the bed was comfortable. Cleanliness is the most important factor to me. The room was also smaller than most. It seems that the more expensive a hotel, the fewer conveniences are free. Internet was $10 per day and the in-room bottle of water was $5.00. They were also trying to sell a very small bed pillow, embroidered with “Georgetown” for approximately $40.00.

The convention center was standard and the meals prepared by the hotel were all very good.

Pretty much what you would expect from the base model of the Holiday Inn brand. Clean comfortable with no frills. The interior of the room that I stayed in appeared to have some recent cosmetic updates .However when you start digging deeper it is apparent that everything was done on the cheap.Cheap light fixture.Cheap fold out sofa,so broken down I thought I was going need help just to get out of it.The lack of electrical outlets necessitated the use of a power strip to accomodate the room demands plus those of the guests.
this Hotel is not in the most convenient location to Georgetown so they make up for it by providing shuttle service to many of the places that guests need to be. They offer parking for $15.00 dollars a night. What they don't tell you is that there is meterd parking on the street that is not enforced from 6;30p to 0800a. So just go find yourself a spot and be out by 0800.
All in all, I wouldn't call it a bad place to stay. I would call it pleasantly functional.

I stayed in this hotel for business a couple of times this year. The location is great for those needing to be close to campus (it is actually on campus). The rooms are clean and comfortable. Some of the decor is a bit dated, but that is to be expected over time. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Nice place. Would definitely be my choice for on campus lodging.

From the first call to make a reservation to a confirmation call to ask about directions and reservations to a last minute call due to my husbands' illness, the Front Deask Staff could not have been more gracious and accommodating. Room was lovely, spacious and newly refurbished. I can't wait to visit Georgetown University and the D.C. area again soon!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the University.

We just returned from a weekend conference at the hotel. The bathrooms are very small and rooms seem typical of a normal hotel room. Even though we had requested a fridge for medications a month prior to our arrival, one was not available. Upon our arrival our reservation was not correct and we were told they were completely sold out; however, staff immediately called a manager and figured it out for us ~ Thank you! The best part of this hotel was the chef. The chef at the faculty club went ABOVE and BEYOND to ensure over 120 children with severe food allergies could safely dine in a buffet style environment, which is hardly ever a possibility when you have a child with food allergies. He and his staff were AMAZING! The hotel's convenience to campus and easy walking distance to the shops at Georgetown is also a bonus.

Room Tip: If you were looking for a campus visit for a high school student, this would be a great hotel as you...
