Reviewed 7 August 2016

We loved our stay because of the very friendly and helpful staff and the fabulous location of this hotel. We were within easy walking distance of many of the sights and also right next to the Metro station so could easily get around beyond walking. Also nice neighborhood.

The location of this property is perfect. It is close to the GWU metro stop, George Washington University, Whole Foods and a 10 minute walk to Georgetown. The staff was friendly and attentive. The rooms were large and comfortable. The hotel is attached to a very good restaurant that has a very enjoyable daily happy hour.

This is an older hotel, so don't expect "new-new" everything. But don't let this deter you from booking this hotel. The rooms are clean and comfortable. What makes this hotel stand out is the staff.

If you are going to an event at the Kennedy Center, You can walk from the GWUI. It is located in a very quiet neighborhood which adds to the ambience. We were also able to walk to the metro and Whole Foods easily. The employees at the front desk were so helpful.

The staff was extremely helpful and of good cheer. We took our 13 year old grandson to see DC. GWU Inn was the perfect place since we could walk to many sites, ride the subway or take a cab. Foggy Bottom is a friendly neighborhood.
