Reasonable choice but there are better options

river inn or residence inn just opposite the st is better than this one; but if they are booked, GWU INN is a decent choice.

Fabulous "home base" for D.C. vacation

Only 2 blocks from the Foggy Bottom metro station, 1 block from the Watergate Shops (pharmacy/grocery, cleaners, sub shop, restaurant, and more), and within 5 blocks of the Kennedy Center, in a quiet, safe, residential neighborhood, the location couldn't be better for a D.C. vacation. We stayed 6 nights; the hotel was quiet, the beds were comfortable, and the facilities were clean. The staff was exceptionally accommodating and helpful. The decor and furnishings are getting dated and a little worn, but it was clean. We had a large suite in an ideal location for a fantistic price!

You can get anywhere you want in D.C. by Metro; a car would be a nuisance!

Perfect place to stay if you are in the GW area.

The hotel was a perfect location for us because we were there visiting friends that were in the GW area. The staff was very helpful, kind and nice. Very close to the foggy bottom station that was convenient. The only thing missing was coffee downstairs. The restaurant connected to the hotel was delicious and convenient. I would stay there again.

The Italian restaurant attached to the hotel has a wonderful risotto. Very reasonably priced and they stayed open late.

Can't say enough good things about the staff.

The great service started before we arrived. I called the hotel to see if they could get me some information about renting a wheelchair for our stay, and when I arrived they had a list of service providers ready for me. While staying there, my mother-in-law, who was traveling with us, had a health emergency. The night doorman actually drove her to the hospital. We stayed in a king suite. The room was large and comfortable. The kitchenette was very compact, and the sink seemed a little small to wash a pan in. The bathroom was a little worn, but very clean.

Great value with excellent proximity to Lincoln memorial

Very well placed 3 min walking distance from Subway station Foggy Bottom and 15 mn walking distance from Lincoln Memorial. Great value even if building looks aged. Super nice staff going the extra mile to satisfy customer.

Couples city break

The room was massive - we had a suite with kitchenette and sofa which was perfect to relax in after hard sightseeing. Location was ideal for public transport links and walking to the attractions and also on a quite residential road. The staff were all very nice and helpful, especially Dante on reception and the doorman Kaiki(??).

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

Bear in mind in the summer Washington can be very humid and this means walking around the city is exhausting and it therefore talks longer to get places. The circulator bus is handy for most places, goes near the hotel and is $1 a ride.

A Gem in the Capitol

The George Washington University Inn as a gem in the heart of the university area. The staff go out of their way to make the visitor feel safe, comfortable and pampered. The front desk staff are especially charming and accommodating. No question is to much for them. The Inn is an older hotel. There were stains on the carpet in my room. But I was very comfortable sleeping on the bed and the temperature of the room was controlled by me. Overall if you are looking for a quite comfortable hotel near the university and other landmarks this is the place.
