gwu family visit

The room was always perfectly clean. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Close location to GWU, laundry place helped us to finalise quickly all packing leaving the campus after a school year. Good food in the restaurant and nice bellman service- everything helped to feel first days of summer vacations!

Great location

This little hotel is a short walk from the foggy bottom metro stop and the Kennedy center shuttle. Plenty of restaurants in the area and also close to the Georgetown waterfront. Clean, quiet, and comfortable bedding.

Hotel staff was excellent. Hotel is walking distance to National Mall. Hotel is older but rooms are good sized and well kept. Several nice restaurants with-in 1 mile walk. Nice hotel to be away from heavy traffic but close to the National Mall, Georgetown and interstate.

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!

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

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