I was very comfortable at the University Inn, and the staff was very welcoming. It feels like a tiny place tucked into a D.C. Neighborhood. Very charming. Close to the Foggy Bottom metro station but also walking distance to the National Mall. Only area of disappointment was a lack of hot water for my shower.

My stay was awesome, I had peaceful nights, the staff are friendly. I enyoyed the mini gym too. The internet was not very good, I had to restart several times, then but it is ok. Overall, Excellent services!

The hotel staff provided excellent service. The room was roomy and comfortable. The only aspect which left something to be desired was the water pressure in the shower. Overall, I enjoyed my stay, and would stay at this hotel again.

With a pleasantly large sleeping room (for a big city, anyway), a very comfortable bed, attentive and courteous staff, and a great location at a fabulous price (AAA rate), my stay at the University Inn mostly met or exceeded my expectations... with a few annoying exceptions. I arrived later than anticipated - but before 9 p.m. - on a chilly...

A very friendly hotel, a lovely spacious room which is great when you are a family of 4. Just a 3 minute walk from foggy bottom metro stop and an easy walk to the Lincoln memorial and White House. Lots of great places to eat nearby. Would definately stay again

This hotel's location is excellent, within a couple of blocks to Metro Rail, Bus Route and very close to shopping centers. Staff members including front desk, doormen/concierge, and housekeeping were very courteous and welcoming. Hotel and room were very clean. It is definitely worth the money we paid, which was less than that of many surrounding hotels. We did not...

Conveniently nestled off New Hampshire Avenue, this hotel is reminiscent of European hotels with the small but elegant entrance/foyer and the small elevators crafted with dark wood. The room was clean and spacious and we appreciated the small refrigerator. The bed and pillows were exceptionally comfortable. Also, the wi-fi was easy to engage and had a strong signal. The breakfast...

We checked in and dropped our bags, then almost immediately headed out to the GWU vs VCU basketball game. I noted the room was lovely (a suite on the second floor), if a bit "tired." I learned later that renovations are in process. We returned to the hotel late (near midnight), and our frustrations began. First there was no ice...

Really enjoyed our stay here. The location was close to a subway stop and felt very safe. The hotel was cosy and well kept, with friendly staff. Our room was really large and it was handy having a fridge and microwave too! Would stay here again for sure.

“The location is a bit tricky as this hotel is tucked away next to George Washington University -- plan to pay $47 per night for parking -- OR attempt street parking -- just beware of signs/permits and times if having your car on the street. We got lucky both nights and saved the $$.”
