“Beautifully done renovation”
Reviewed September 4, 2009

We were only here for one night but it was pretty nice. We were accidentally upgraded upon check-in, a happy accident. A friend met us for drinks and live music in the bar which was very pleasant. Drinks and eats were reasonably priced and the var was very comfortable. I wish I could say the same for the restaurant. We went down for breakfast around 8. It wasn't very busy but the service took for ever! It was over 45 minutes before we received our meal, which was not at all worth the wait. Enjoy the hotel and the bar but skip eating at the restaurant.

The hotel is a pretty nice place. The exterior looks very upscale. The rooms are spacious enough and the bathroom is huge. Staff was friendly and helpful. Our only problem was that the Air conditioner conked-out every 4 hours or so and had to be reset. This is annoying in the middle of the night during the summer. Oh, and the AC is VERY loud as well. The hotel maintenance staff was not able to correct the problem.

Winchester is a nice enough place. The hotel is about 2 blocks from the 'downtown' pedestrian mall, a couple mueseums and the beautfiul public library. For us, it was the perfect quick getaway from DC. However, the city is a bit small and rundown, and if you head about 1 or 2 blocks from the hotel the area becomes very seedy. But as long as you stay in the hotel or on the right side of the train tracks, it's a very charming place.

My wife and I stayed at the George Washington Hotel in Winchester not because we wanted to go to Winchester, but because we got a really good deal on Hotwire for what looked like a really nice hotel. The hotel did not disappoint. We got a free upgrade from a queen to a king room just by asking, the service was excellent, and the room was great. The pool was a little small, but very cozy and relaxing, and the feel of the hotel was exactly what we were going for - a very nice, unique upscale hotel. My one complaint was the noisy noisy air conditioning system in the room. It was great that the thermostat was very responsive about turning it on and off, but when it was on, I couldn't hear my wife talking 10 feet away. It also would have been nice to be able to park for free.

But all in all a very pleasant stay. We didn't end up doing a whole lot in Winchester, becasue we enjoyed just staying inside the hotel so much! If we ever get back to Winchester, we'll stay here again.

No expense was spared in restoring the George Washington. The lobby, bar and the indoor pool were spectacular. The health club was well eqipped with the latest equipment.

The room had 4.5 star furnishings and amenities. The bedding and the bathroom really stood out. Everything is sparkling clean. The only problem is that the room was much smaller than expected.

Get good directions and follow them closely as the George Washington is difficult to find. You are within walking distance to many restaurants. Avoid the ? Brewery next door. Winchester downtown is a work in progress but provides a nice walk.

We spent one night at the Winchester following a weekend of backpacking through Shenandoah. We wanted a bit of luxury after back country camping and were especially drawn to the hotel because of it's pool. We checked in on Sunday afternoon and were promptly greated at the door with an offer of valet parking (for a fee of $4 which is also the same price to self-park in the parking garage located behind the hotel) and help with our bags. We opted to park on the street since we needed to access our car several times and were leaving early in the am the following day (street parking is free and seemingly plentiful) on Sundays.

The hotel is lovely, with a large welcoming lobby and inviting, stylish furnishings. We had a king room with a double vanity in the bathroom which proved more than adequate space-wise. The bedding and mattress were great, with super soft sheets and fluffy pillows. The room was clean and quiet (even with it's location next to the ice machine).

We thoroughly enjoyed using the pool and hot tub and found the water temps of both to be quite comfortable. It was also wonderful to have both to ourselves!

Prior to heading out to dinner we enjoyed drinks in the lounge which was quite relaxing. Though we were the only ones in the lounge the bartender told us it gets quite busy on the weekend. I could easily imagine this as it is the sort of place I would enjoy meeting friends were it closer to home.

We did not get to try the hotel's food so I can't comment on that but if you are looking for a bit of afforable luxury on your stay in the Winchest area I would definitely recommend the George Washington.

Spent the weekend with my 15 year old daughter for a short get-a-way at this nice hotel. Greeted immediately, took our bags, got us checked in, escorted to the room, fed details of the place, got us ice, and made sure we were comfortable. Checkin/checkout a breeze. Valet parking a must. $4 per day, so you don't have to park in the garage out back and walk for the same price. Lovely pool and hot tub. Were guided to local excellent eateries, shops, malls, spa, etc. Got web price for the asking. Excellent. Would highly recommend.

We absolutely loved this hotel! The room was decorated so beautifully and the bathroom with the walk-in shower was gorgeous. As a WyndamByRequest member we had complimentary wine and cheese awaiting us in our room which was just the icing on the cake after flying all day from Seattle. We love this place. The front desk staff were very professional and hospitable, and swiftly took care of a room charge discrepancy I had made in the lounge bar the previous evening. I wish I lived closer so I could escape to the GW at every possible moment. I found the hotel to be exceptional value for money. You couldn't come close to the caliber of this hotel in the Seattle area for anything near the amount we paid for a weeknight stay....you'd easily pay at least 2.5 times as much.
