This hotel is in a great location, within a block of the Metro (Foggy Bottom) and there is a Whole Foods 2 blocks away. The furnishings of the room are in need of a facelift, and we had little AC the first two nights.

Stayed in this hotel for 4 nights at the beginning trip in the United States. After arriving from a 9 hour flight this hotel felt like a warm shower. The hotel entrance is hidden behind some of the rooms and from the outside it can not be separated from an average apartment building. When entering however, you know you have made a great choice coming here. Hotel personnel is friendly and the hotel lobby is cozy. The rooms have all basic amenities you need (including flat screen tv, an office, fridge). The hotel is a free printer available for boarding passes. The hotel's location is good; the Mall is accessible by foot and the subway is nearby. I liked this hotel best for its price; I payed only $100 per night and I recommend this place to everyone, as its price-quality value is simply great.

We stayed at GWU for three nights while visiting DC. It was a safe neighborhood, and about a two block walk to the Foggy Bottom Metro Station. From here we could go anywhere. It was only two stops to McPherson Square (the White House stop). Room was good....clean, simple, and met our needs. Beds and pillows were comfortable. Hotel is older, but it seems to be well kept. We walked each morning for breakfast, either to the Starbucks at the hospital, Whole Foods, or one morning we took a little longer walk to Founding Farmers (still close to the hotel and worth it). We are walkers and even walked one night down to the mall to the Lincoln Monument from the hotel. Parking was extra - $35/day, but we were okay with that. You also have in/out priviledges. The hotel restaurant looked good and locals seemed to be dining there. Why spend an hour riding on the train from further locations, or spend more money, when you can stay here? We would stay again. Watch for the restaurant front if you are driving, because the hotel is hidden back from the road a little bit.

My family stayed at the GW University Inn for the annual No Kill Conference. It was such a comfortable stay. It felt more like a small apartment than a regular hotel room. We loved our junior suite. The kitchenette came in handy with Whole Foods nearby. The hotel was conveniently located to the Metro, restaurants, and stores. The restaurant off the lobby had a nice lunch menu. We will definitely book this hotel again next year.

It was a very pleasent and peaceful stay in GWU inn from 12 Aug 2012 to 17 Aug 2012. The staff is very co-operative. The place is very peaceful, and just a few steps walk from Foggy Bottom metro station. It was safe to walk from station to hotel even in late nights. The restaurent is small and nice. Only I could not get wi-fy connection in spite of the staff working so hard to solve the problem. I suggest this hotel to family members and short visitors with economic rates and better service.

Title says it all. Location of the hotel is in Foggy Bottom right next to the university. 2 blocks away from the subway line and very central to all the sights.

From the outside, the hotel doesn't look like much but the rooms are well kept and clean. Very good value for the location and quality. I actually got upgraded because the room I booked was filled. Staff is very friendly and helpful.

Overall a great stay and I would definitely consider a restay the next time i'm in Washington.

Yes, although we are in a very nice and quiet area in the Foggy Bottom Neighborhood we can be overlooked at times because of the way our building sits back off of New Hampshire avenue. We are very pleased that you found us and that we were able to accomodate you to your standards.
