The George Washington Hotel
Ranked #17 of 20 Hotels in Washington
Reviewed 3 September 2017

We stayed for two days at the George Washington. We went there only as a getaway for a couple of days. We learned of the George Washington on line. We went because of the pictures and in spite of the reviews.
The entry/lobby room was spectacular. The rest of the hotel--not so much. Ballrooms were closed due to obvious water leaks, no gym even though advertised as one of the best, bar and restaurant closed, I don't know why.
Our room was clean and was what I would call a typical old hotel room. There was a leak at the back of the toilet.

Room Tip: Go for a suite if you can afford it.

Clean and aesthetically appealing. Close to national mall which has great restaurants and shops, plus the big bus that takes you to many tourist spots (for a price but try to negotiate!) The hotel also has a restaurant inside but its pricy, although it's good. They pick a time of day where for a couple of hours you get a free sample of wine in the lobby. The employees are real nice. They also are in an area where lots of food can be delivered ( we ordered bucca di beppo and some other places). Took us about a 15 minute walk to neuseum and 40 minutes walk to other museums, respectively. Then we took a ride in a Taxi back to the hotel but taxi is pricy, try uber or the big bus.

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.
