Everything was great except check-in. I had requested an early check-in when booking but didn't get it. It would be nice if someone told us that before we got there. We arrived around 1pm and check-in starts at 3pm. When asked when the room would be ready, we were told nobody knows! Seriously?! So we left our luggage and went about our day, and we were expecting a phone call when our room was ready. It was about 5pm that we decided to go back since my calls kept being placed on hold. The room was ready but no one knew why it took so long or why nobody called us. -_- Other than this hiccup, our stay was smooth sailing. The location of the hotel is great! Walking distance to a lot of great restaurants, Georgetown, and of course downtown DC. We even walked at night in the area and felt safe. Breakfast was the usual continental: cereal, bagels, waffles, pancakes, eggs, sausages, coffee, yogurt. There was something for everyone. The room was great, comfy queen beds, small clean bathroom, and was mostly quiet at night. We had a room on the 8th floor that looked to the back of the building. There was a tiny kitchenette with a small fridge, microwave, coffee maker, a sink, paper towels, and utensils. The staff is very nice and helpful, especially during breakfast and the handyman also saved us from buying new luggage. Overall, I would stay again and hope they can get the check-in right the next time.
We arrived having just spent three nights in New York City. We arrived by train and taxi to hotel was less than 20 dollars. Stayed in this hotel for three nights. Mentioned it was my birthday and we were upgraded Hotel was previously listed as Best Western Suites Georgetown. Although called Georgetown Inn the hotel is situated in Foggy Bottom. The hotel is well placed for visiting most attractions if you don't mind walking generally took about 20-30 minutes to visit museums and Capitol Hill. Coffee/ tea available in room with a microwave and fridge. Staff are helpful providing information on local attractions When visiting Capitol Hill check if the Senate is sitting as you can get a pass to view proceedings from the gallery. Tickets can be got at the Visitor centre.. also worth a visit is the Thomas Jefferson Building. This houses the library of congress this was established in1800 the initial collection of 740 books were burned 14 years later when the British invaded and burned down the building. President Jefferson offered his personal collection of 6487 books as a replacement. The great hall is beautiful with its two marble staircases. We also spent time at Smithsonian museums including the African American Museum and American History museum. You could easily spend several days in these museums.
This is a boutique-y hotel just outside the hub--walkable neighborhood, close to the Circulator bus line which will take you to all the major museums and sights. The friendly front desk staff is most helpful and the hotel itself is spotlessly clean and bright. It has been updated in the last few years and there was a small kitchenette in the room I shared with my sister. However, there are a few hiccups--one of the two air conditioning units was so loud it was unusable, but the other one kept the room cool enough. The cover on that unit, though, was coming off. The toilet sat far enough out into the room that things kept falling behind the toilet. and everything in the bath was mounted at a slight angle (not enough to be purposeful--just someone not paying attention to what they were doing). Slight stains in the carpet, but the beds were big and comfy and the room itself was very quiet for being in the middle of a big city.
Set in the middle of several higher-priced hotels, this is a little gem. Our room was spotless, quiet and comfortable, the front desk help was amazing (even helped us set up Uber and find perfect restaurants) and breakfast was a treat. We're making a note of this one for our next Washington DC stay.
The Georgetown Inn NW used to be the Best Western but it was bought, refurbished and renamed. It is an older building shoe horned between two other buildings and in a great location to walk to the White House, monuments, restaurants and tourist buses. The Inn is clean, quiet and has the best complimentary breakfast, every morning, that I've ever had at any hotel or inn. The rooms are also about $100+ cheaper than any of the other local hotels and they give a 10% discount for AARP members. When I mentioned it was my birthday they upgraded my room at no extra charge. My room was large with a separate bedroom with comfortable bed and flat screen tv. The living room had a desk, sofa, chair and flat screen tv. There was also a kitchenette with mini fridge, microwave, sink, garbage disposal and plates, saucers, bowls and utensils with napkins. The inn has free wifi, a computer room with printer and library. The staff is wonderful and helped out with directions, dining suggestions and transport. This is an older place that has been refurbished tastefully but does not have great views due to being sandwiched between two other buildings, but makes up for the lack of views by all the other pluses I've mentioned. I would stay there again without hesitation.
Nice staying and very clean, the rooms are comfortable and well planned. The girls from the lobby are nice and the cleaning of the Hotel is excellent. Wifi did not work at any time. Only at the Lobby Office.
We made a reservation thru Trip Advisor and paid in advance for a twin bedded room for 3 nights. And we had a confirmation number for that. When we checked in, we were downgraded to a double bedded room without our consent. I was furious but to no avail. We are in our 80's and need 2 beds. How can you list a hotel that doesn't honor its commitments? I'm sure I overpaid as well. BTW it's not a Best Western anymore.
Hotel was clean, spacious and the location was ideal. There were nearby shops/restaurants that my family bought food from and everything else was fine. However the design was kind of a dissapointment.
Hotel was clean, breakfast was great, and location was central for walking to all the attractions. Parking was close by and affordable. The bed was extremely comfortable and the hotel was quiet. Great place to stay!
My experience at the Best Western Georgetown Hotel in Washington DC was an excellent one. I enjoyed everything about the place but most importantly the bed. What a comfortable bed this was. it even made it difficult for me to get up in the mornings. I also enjoyed the entire room that was just about the right size and had everything that one willl need once in a hotel. I will recommend the hotel to anyone travelling to that area. I really enjoyed it.
