Room was very quiet, beds soft and comfortable. I was in town for my nephews college graduation. The hotel valet was great, and I loved that when I was checking out they offered to keep my bags for me for the day. The concierge was fabulous and the cupcakes at the front desk for graduation were delicious. Was a great...

We chose GWUI for it was within 5-10 minute walk to the Kennedy Center, where my husband was attending Wagner's Ring Cycle. We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite, with a kitchenette.

I have stayed here twice and I will return for sure. It's a well located hotel. What I love about it is that the stay is personal, and the staff could not be more welcoming and helpful. The rooms are large, the linen good, and the free business services (including printing) a lovely touch.

Hotel is tucked away on a side street, so it's quiet. The room was surprisingly big, much larger than some of my NYC apartments! Definitely would stay here again. Great for extended stay as well given the large kitchen.
