“Great location and pet fee free !!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2014

The rooms have recently been upgraded. So if you have stayed before give it another try. The colors are dark in hallways so I question the thought of that. Grey, dark navy blue and stripes. Hallways are not warm feeling. No doors slam you have to push your door shut which helps to eliminate slamming doors. Building in older so you have hardy construction and you can not hear people next door to you nor the sound of flushing toilet water from floors above. Beds are super comfortable but the pillows are lumpy. Towels and linens are nice. Love love love the wine happy hour. Poured freely by friendly staff. The restaurant in the hotel has fabulous food but is very expensive. The hotel staff was very friendly and warm. With the exception of one female our first night. We witnessed her even being snappy to her co-worker. Location is great walking distance to Union Station/metro amtrak etc. A bakery with breakfast great coffee and lunch steps away from front door of hotel. Be aware some construction still going on in the day on other floors that be heard throughout building.

Room Tip: Choose a room not facing the front of the hotel or street. If you looking for a pet friendly hotel t...

Thank you for the excellent review, Sun95Flower! We're so glad you enjoyed your time with us despite the lumpy pillows (Maybe opt for foam next time?). I especially enjoyed your thorough list of highlights! The construction will be over soon--we hope to see you again.

Cheers,

This was our first trip to Washington, D.C. and we couldn't have been happier with our stay at The Hotel George. We were immediately greeted with warm, friendly staff. The front desk were extremely helpful in answering questions and accommodating us. We were particular impressed with the assistant manager, Michael. Michael was fantastic in assisting us in the right direction for delicious and well priced places to eat/drink and many things to do whilst in Washington. Michael also conducted a complimentary wine hour from 5-6 for guests, which was a brilliant way to socialise and meet other travellers. Our hotel room was by far the best we have stayed in for the six weeks we have been travelling around the States. It was very clean, updated and extremely comfortable. I highly recommend The Hotel George for anyone who may be considering to stay here. You will not be disappointed, they really do lead by example.

A wonderful small hotel located near the Capitol, Union Station, and convenient Metro. My husband came for a meeting and I tagged along. The decor is beautiful, from the lobby to the room we stayed in.
I am admittedly very picky and complained when the coffee maker didn't work after an engineer tried twice to figure it out. But the response was prompt and gracious -- they got the thing working and offered us breakfast on the house. When we missed that they picked up our lunch without skipping a beat.
Great location, beautiful place, and super service -- we're looking forward to trying the happy hour on our next visit!

Room Tip: Make sure you get a renovated room!

I stayed here and liked it. The location was perfect for my stay in DC.
The hotel interior is lovely, modern, and chic. I understand some floors have been newly renovated. The others do need renovating.
I was initially given a room that I disliked and when I complained, I was given a much better room with a better décor and view. From the reception to room service, the service I received was average by my standards but the location and rooms made up for it. So overall, I enjoyed my stay in this hotel and may stay here again when I am in Washington DC.

FabGlobetrotter03, thanks for the great review! We've been more of a wallflower for a while in terms of decor, appreciated mostly for our service. Although we seem to have only done a fair job with the latter, we're glad we could wow you otherwise. Hope to see you again!

The staff is fantastic, the rooms are beautiful. They are really friendly to pets and also very relaxed about everything. Some homeless men came in at one point and no one stopped them. That was a bit off-putting, but it says more about our nation's (shameful) capitol than the hotel. A great experience, over all.

I work on Capitol Hill and needed a place for my wife and I to stay after an office Christmas party. I've stayed at the George before but not since the recent renovations. We were met at the front desk by friendly staff and were actually upgraded to a better room for free. The suite was fantastic. The renovations were very well done and hotel looks great. If you need a great room around Capitol Hill, near Union Station, the Capitol or the National Mall you should consider the George. Great location, newly redone rooms and lobby, great and attentive staff, plus the room rates are some of the best in DC. We will definetly use the hotel again.

Room Tip: If you can, upgrade to the George Suite. Beautiful rooms!

It was our first visit to Washington and we thoroughly enjoyed the quality of our hotel room, the friendliness and knowledge of the staff and the hotel's close proximity to both Capital Hill and Union Station. We particularly enjoyed the wine tasting "happy hour" each afternoon arranged by the Front Desk/Guest Relations team which provided an opportunity to mingle with other local and international guests.
