“Nice place, but...”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

The Georgetown Inn was a nice hotel with good amenities. However the air conditioner made a screaming noise all night long and the toilet ran until you jiggled the flapper valve. When I reported it to the front desk apparently nothing was done.

I was pleasantly surprised by the spacious and quaint room we were placed in. The room was on the sixth floor and had a great view; we could see the Washington Monument from our room. The location is perfect as well, it's directly on Wisconsin Ave., and is surrounded by great restaurants and coffee shops. As far as service goes, the front desk couldn't have been more helpful and friendly, and the valet was really flexible and friendly as well. If you're staying in Georgetown and don't feel like paying 400-500 dollars a night, I would highly recommend you check out the Georgetown Inn for a great value experience.

This was our first trip to the area and we could not be more pleased with the choice of Georgetown Inn. It is an elegant hotel in a fantastic location, right in the middle of the Georgetown neighborhood and within walking distance of the University. All employees, from the front desk personnel to the manager to the valet, were excellent and professional. Our room was lovely and the beds amazingly comfortable. The bathroom was a little small but I think there are larger rooms/suites which will have larger bathrooms if needed. I even noticed that the beautiful glass light fixtures lining the hallways are crystal clear - impressive if you know how hard it is to clean cut glass. If you look in the city guide in the room, the hotel has a fascinating history. It was really a wonderful stay and we fell in love with this hotel. Would definitely stay here again and can recommend without reservation.

As far as the location, the staff from the valet staff to the front desk this hotel is top notch and I would stay here again because of them. Another reason to stay is the Daily Grill. The food is excellent. The only drawback for us is that the room we stayed in was very outdated and I paid the same price for a luxury hotel in D.C. Not to be any reflection on the wonderful people who work there but the room price versus value was a little off.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that has been remodeled.

The location of this hotel cannot be beat. It is in the heart of Georgetown. The lobby is very nice and the staff are very friendly. Our room was pretty and spacious, but there were many problems. First, the TV didn't work well. We tried several times to get a picture by turning it off and on, but only got sound. The engineer came, who was able to get it to work by himself turning it off and on numerous times. He said that it is a common problem. Also, the A/C was very noisy, with occasional loud grinding sounds. Finally, the bathroom had more plumbing problems than any hotel I've ever stayed in, which I reported to the front desk. First, the toilet kept running. Second, the sink faucet was ridiculously hard to pull on. Finally, the drain in the shower wouldn't unplug. The shower is very small, yet has a side as high as a bathtub side. Maybe it's supposed to also be a bathtub for a very small child. In any case, since the water wouldn't drain, the tub portion filled up to our shins while showering, which was unpleasant. Good way to make sure the showers are short.

If you have any reason to visit Georgetown (or DC for that matter), you should try the Georgetown Inn. Great location, staff and restaurant. Convenient walking to shops, GU, great restaurants, and the charm of Georgetown.

The Georgetown inn was an amazing 10/10! The beds were so comfy, the housekeepers were so meticulous, the tv was big, and there was beautiful decor! The bathrooms were so clean, as well as the rest of the room, and they supplied mild smelling Bath & Body Works products, that did not irritate my family's allergies. Plus, Bath & Body Works is my favorite store for soaps and lotions! The Georgetown inn is a go-to hotel!
