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.

Convenient Hotel

This hotel is pretty convenient in its location to subway (Foggy Bottom) and grocery stores. I have used it before and will do so again. However I do feel that it is pricey but perhaps understandable because it is DC after all and a lot of things are a rip-off (especially the mannerless taxi drivers) for the visitors. The one point worth mentioning in particular regard to this hotel is the bell staff, who are completely useless. They are good in their disappearing act or when they are around, they look like they would rather see a tip in your hand FIRST, then offer their service. The hotel needs to improve this aspect . Secondly, the breakfast is far too expensive for what is provided. It is uninspiring and remains the same every day. The hotel needs to review this.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Shopping for groceries is just a short walk. Wholefoods is a couple of minutes walk. Surprisingly other tourist attractions are within walking distance too as the hotel is a short walk from Pennsylvania Avenue.

Business Trip

This was a good hotel, not exceptional. Good location and within easy reach of metro station and grocery stores. But i thought it was rather overpriced for what it delivered. There is no proper restaurant at the facility, an italian restaurant that doubles up as serving buffet breakfast and dinner. The breakfast is overpriced for the same daily fare it offers. The dinner menu similarly is overpriced limited and has no range in variety. What I found really annoying was that the reception area was being renovated so check in was located to the first floor. But no staff had the common sense to put a notice at the front door informing arriving guests about this. One guest even went away because he thought the hotel was closed. I pointed this out to the receptionist who stated "yes you are right, we should have put a notice at the front."

Excellent value

My room was a nice suite, complete with a comfortable bed, seating area with sofa, flat-screen TV. Very spacious and clean. Great location extremely close to Metro. Friendly staff. Incredibly nice room and place for the value.

A welcoming hotel in a pleasant area

Very helpful desk staff, nice fast free wi-fi, and a large, quiet, comfortable suite. A nice touch to have a radio alarm with a slot at the top for my iPod. Air conditioning was easy to control and not too noisy. It was good value for money, partly I suspect because it doesn't provide facilities like a pool and gym, which i never use when staying in a hotel. When staying in hotels that charge more per room, I often feel I am subsidizing those who do use the free leisure facilities.

Outstanding value

The online price of $89 plus tax was more than a good value. The room was large, clean, comfortable, and all the staff was more than helpful. This is my place to stay in DC from

Perfect for visiting GW

This hotel was perfect for me because I was interviewing at GW's school of medicine. It was steps away from the medical school and within walking distance to all of DC attractions, from the shops at Georgetown to the White House.

Wonderful stay, wonderful location

I was in D.C. to attend a business meeting and to do sightseeing. The hotel is not impressive from the outside, but it is a different story inside. The staff were friendly and helpful. My room was clean and comfortable - no different than a swankier hotel. And no bedbugs! This was a concern since I had heard stories about bedbug infestations on the east coast. The hotel is next to the prestigious Georgetown University. It was an easy 15 minute walk past the the university and the State Department to the Lincoln Memorial. From there it was easy to get to all the major sights on the national mall. It took took me no more than 30 min. to walk between the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History and the hotel. It also took me no longer than 3-5 minutes to get to the Foggy Bottom Metro Station. Bottom line: If you are looking for a clean, well-maintained, reasonably priced hotel that is in a historic area of D.C., and want to be reasonably close to the sights and close to Metro, then I highly recommend this place.

value oriented

Nice, clean sheets and towels. An older property with some noise through the walls and windows, but the property is maintained, with carpets, beds, and fixtures in good shape. In an appallingly expensive neighborhood, this is a good value for standard hotel accommodations.
