Stayed here recently when we visited Congressional offices and also picked up our daughter between semesters. After the long ride to DC from Mass. it was good to find such a nice inn so close to everything in the Nation's Capitol. Staff was welcoming and helpful, room was nice, secure and comfortable. When you are in such a large metropolitan...

Our family stayed at the George Washington University Inn based on a recommendation from friends. The location was perfect near the museums and the waterfront but less commercial and more residential so it felt like coming home after a long day. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Nice amenities in the suite including a small kitchen.

The suites have a nice size with a separate bedroom and a fully equipped kitchenette. The staff at the front desk are very helpful and the cleaning staff are amazing. After buying groceries at the Trader Joe's a few blocks away, I did not feel there was a reason to leave the place... ever.

This was a very short-stay for us so we didn't get to linger to fully experience this Foggy Bottom get-away, but we enjoyed the brief time we were there. We had arrived for check-in during end of business day rush hour + appreciated the large dispenser of refreshing fruit-flavored ice-water next to the registration desk on this hot summer evening....
