“A bit tired”
Reviewed 14 August 2012

Great location and the price was right but it's definitely time for a make-over. The lobby didn't look at all like the photos! The valet parking and front desk registry was efficient and friendly and the attached restaurant, the Daily Grill was really good, though slow at breakfast time. There is no included breakfast and it's quite expensive but convenient.

Room Tip: The Gtown room was big enough with 2 queen sized beds

Me and my family frequent the DC area and always stay at the Georgetown Inn. The rooms are highly comfortable, service is outstanding and the location is hard to beat...you can walk to excellent shopping, coffe shops, gourmet restaurants and lounge at various seafood bars along the Potomac River. With valet parking to ensure your vehicle is safe and the great restaurant attached to the Inn, on those nights you feel the long day wore you down, you can have a great meal, nice wine and relax for the evening, with just an elevator ride to your comfortable bed. Whether me, my wife or my son travel to DC, for business or pleasure, we agree that the Georgetown Inn is our first choice...and for the best price. The McCauley Family

We always stay at the Georgetown Inn when we visit DC. It is in a fantastic location - right in the heart of Georgetown shopping and restaurants, and a quick walk to campus and the surrounding historic neighborhood. It is a small hotel, very warm. Many of the staff have been there for a long time and the new people are extremely gracious as well. The rooms range in size from small to very spacious (the suites are quite large). While it is not the newest hotel, it is well maintained. The daily grill has a wide variety of food and is very convenient to have connected to the hotel. They are always very sweet when I am with my children and accommodate all of our requests (we have some allergies). All around a great value for the price and a happy place to stay!

Organised the Georgetown Inn online - great communication, prompt, good service.

Check in went smoothly which can be a challenge when you have a car. Beautiful room - looking over the street (but not noisy), sitting area and great bed, large clean bathroom with great products. Only complaint would be the charge for wifi - if the Days Inn can make it free of charge then I'm not sure why the Georgetown Inn can't.

The downstairs bar and restaurant is great - I enjoyed a number of nights at the bar, meeting locals and travellers alike, watching the Republican primaries on the television (in DC this is considered compulsory viewing) and made some great friends. The bar staff are wonderful and the food ideal for this environment.

The Inn is also conveniently located on the Big Bus Tour route which saved me considerable money and hassle with transport. There are convenient bus lines straight into the city. The Georgetown area is young and cosmopolitan - great shops, cafes, bars and restaurants.

It's not cheap but it really is a grew hotel and I think being a little bit out of the centre of town gives you a much better perspective of the 'real DC'. No hesitation in recommending.

Room Tip: Queen bed room overlooking the front of the hotel was fantastic - large, beautifully appointed.

I stayed here for four nights on business i had a Georgetown U. As for the positives: the location is fantastic and the staff service was very good. I must also say the food at the Daily Grill was enjoyable. I can´t say more about the Inn because the rest has to do with the poor quality of the rooms despite housekeeping best efforts. In short, the rooms I (stayed in an executive suite) were very outdated, did not feel clean and i just never felt comfortable in the room because there were always things that made me wish i stayed elsewhere. It´s like walking into a really old home you know is clean but just doesnt look, feel or make you comfortable. I travel quite a bit and was disappointed with the Inn, and I believe they really take advantage of being one of the few places in Georgetown (Downtown). Next time, i will stay at the Georgetown U conference center or hope to get a good offer at the nearby Four Seasons. Plus, $11/day for internet in the room is outdated, too!

My husband and I stayed here for two nights for a quick getaway without the kids. You can't beat the location! We could walk everywhere and most DC attractions are a quick cab ride away. The hotel was very comfortable, the service was friendly and the food was great! I recommend this hotel for anyone looking to stay in the Georgetown area.

I payed a lot to stay at this hotel, because it was recommended to me by a business partner. What a partner :-)
The hotel is an old dump. Ugly small rooms, close to no service at all. Expensive internet and noisy schoolkids in the hallways (wonder what they payed).
In the middle of the night the fire alarm went on, and everybody rushed to the street. Except for the staff. They were nowhere to see, and we ended up going back to the rooms on own initiative.
Only one good thing to say about this hotel: The breakfast is good.
