Nice NW location on edge of Georgetown, near GWU and Foggy Bottom metro stop where there are several restaurants. “Smallish” hotel enclosed in large building, age uncertain. Wonderful staff and terrific service. We had mini-suite .. a 2 room “apt” with king, hide-a-bed in great room, virtually full kitchen. Spacious. Some of the traditional style dark wood furniture was showing...

This hotel is has spacious rooms, a really good restaurant & bar, and a small gym right in the heart of Foggy Bottom. We had a big suite with the living room, kitchenette and separate bedroom -- it was perfect for me, my husband and our son. My son stayed on the fold-out sofa and said it was super comfortable....

Boutique hotel with friendly staff. Large rooms. Well located near restaurants and metro. Went to the African-American museum. Fortunately was told that advanced tickets (several months) are necessary or go online exactly when tickets for the day become available (6:30 AM on the day I was there). Took the metro there and took the long walk back.

Went to University Inn for GWU graduation week. Staff, esp front desk, was very accommodating. Had relatives in room second night, and they trashed it -- including grinding dog food into floor, leaving piles of dishes in sink and trash cans overflowing. Left housekeeping generous tip, requested fresh linens and we came back to a sparkling room with extra towels!...

We were on a campus tour of GW University. I chose this hotel for the proximity to the campus. Very short walk to the campus and multiple restaurants. It's not a luxury hotel, but the room was clean and the air conditioner worked. ( It was over 90 degrees that day). The bed was a touch too soft for us,...

The employees were extremely courteous . I thought the valet service was a little expensive, but also courteous and prompt. The room was clean. I didnt like the fact that there is not a lobby. The only place to sit other than your room were some umbrella tables outside. The healing and cooling system seemed to be preset . The...

Residential neighborhood adjacent to the George Washington University campus, close to the Metro and easy to go anywhere. This boutique hotel is quiet with large rooms, each with a refrigerator and microwave. Great stay at a great place.

See my review below under room tips. Overall our stay was very comfortable, but the older structure lacks newer amenities. The Inn's location is convenient to the George Washington University and worked well during our visit.

Excellent location for all main sights. Hotel needs a make-over as seems "tired". Very helpful staff. Is on flight path of Ronald Regan Airport but doesn't disturb guests. Very close to Metro for getting out and about. Plenty of decent restuarnts close by.
