The George Washington Hotel
Ranked #17 of 20 Hotels in Washington
Reviewed 13 April 2017

This was a beautiful hotel at one point. We stayed on the 6th floor. Paid $10 extra for the queen suite. Two large rooms, 2 tvs, wet bar and frig, couch, HUGE walk in closet, large, newish bath with jetted tub and separate shower, beautiful old wood bed. Walking distance to W&J, courthouse and multiple restaurants. Sounds like a deal right? Our room was 50 degrees when we entered. One window was not all the way shut, the other has a AC unit in it and the seal and insulation were loose so that I could see outside. I fixed those and called to the front desk for heat and was told "they would turn the boiler on". It was 30 degrees and snowing that day, what were they waiting for? It did warm up by bed time but by morning was back to the low 60s. I guess the duct tape on the window came undone because it was warm in the hall. People must not use the wet bar as a short time after turning it on the water turned brown from rust and then cleared. The cafe and bar downstairs were closed for renovation. I have no idea when the last time the windows in the lobby or rooms were washed. There were almost no lights on in the lobby at any point during our visit which made it a little spooky. Obviously they are struggling financially, but it would take very little to make this a great hotel again as its clear a lot of remodeling has already been done. The event room was being prepared with linens etc and looked great. I would probably stay there again for convenience sake. There is limited free parking.

We arrived for a surprise get together - thirty two years since our last visit - and found it to be clean and the staff friendly. Drinks were a tad expensive but the food was excellent and the ambiance pleasant. Loads of parking
Overall a three star Plus

After looking at countless other options for a wedding venue, we settled on the George Washington and were NOT disappointed. Claire was spot on with her communication, was always knowledgeable, and helped in so many ways that we can't possibly thank her enough. The wedding went smoothly (as did our rehersal), and everyone had a wonderful time. I couldn't have pictured a more perfect day, and we have Claire to thank for it. I highly, HIGHLY recommend this hotel if booking for a wedding.

When you step into the door you go back in time to see how things were back in the early to mid 1900's. Yes it looks good. Parking is awful when they are having weddings and events, so there's a minus. The room I was in(808) was wonderfully set up and clean. Way to go Traci!!! The tubs in the room need some attention. Beds were comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful, especially Traci, which is Head Housekeeper. If your setting around and decide you need some conversation during the daytime, please go down stairs to the lobby and look up Ms. Ann. Wonderful little ole lady will steal your heart with stories of the way things used to be. She should know she has been at the same hotel for over 35 years, and worked at the back located right next door. As for the price... its about the same as the other surrounding hotels, but being right down town it's quiet and safe.
I have read the other reviews and I feel I need to add these remarks. When I stay here I usually stay for at least a month sometime as many as 3 to 4. I bring my own personal towels, wash rags, pots and pans, things to cook and so forth. There are washing machines on the 10th and the 5th. Need more, of course at least on every floor.

Room Tip: If your going to stay for awhile...come see them. Stayed here for the past 3 years off and on

We were there for a wedding, and maybe booked 18 rooms. They were not prepared for us . . . not enough towels, washcloths, Kleenex and cleaning for a 3 night stay was minimal (some people didn't have hot water and they didn't know how to turn it on) . . . I couldn't reach the pull cords on the fans/lights. The wedding was nice but chair covers and some items were well worn and needing replacing . . . thank goodness the bride's family furnished a continental breakfast and was on top of everything. The bride paid for top shelf at the bar, they provided watered down vodka! As a family we had a good time . . . the hotel was not prepared for us! Too much change in staff that needed training.
