Reviewed 17 December 2013

Just came back from a weekend in DC and stayed at this lovely boutique hotel. Great location, practically on campus. Rooms were clean, service was great! Steven at the desk was especially helpful. The most impressive thing about our stay was the Manager, Sarah Conigliaro. When there was an issue with the breakfast we had already purchased vouchers for, she sprang in to action, single handedly setting up the entire breakfast, serving our beverages and clearing our plates. She turned a potential negative experience in to a winning one. A+ for customer service and service recovery!

You cannot beat this small boutique inn for location and value. In the heart of historic Foggy Bottom, the Inn is close to Georgetown and many of the most visited tourist sites. This property is not for those who prefer a Hampton or Marriott experience. Rooms are small, but nicely appointed and many have efficiencies. The staff is exceptional and rooms are quiet and very clean. If you have a student at GWU or someone being treated at the GWU hospital, this is an ideal location. Great price point! Oh, and it is a short walk to the Metro. And, there is valet parking (albeit limited). The area feels safe for walking as well.

The first time we stayed in this hotel we were in a room that had a kitchenette. The room was very spacious and nicely done and clean. This next time we expected a kitchenette based on the third party room description from the on line reservation company. The room assigned us did not have the kitchenette. When we remarked on this with the reservation clerk at the hotel he was very willing to change us. We like this hotel because of its location to the hospital and public transportation. The staff is very professional and the beds are comfortable. We will have no problem rebooking at this hotel.

I think the GWU Inn was the subject of my very first TripAdvisor Review in 2011. My wife and I were back for five nights over Thanksgiving and, once again, we had an excellent experience. This is not a fancy, big name hotel with a sprawling lobby. In fact, the reception area is small enough that the person at the front desk will warmly acknowledge you each time you come or go. During our 2011 visit and again this time, we found the prices at the GWU Inn beyond reasonable--and all the more so this time as we got a complimentary upgrade to a small suite. If I had to find a fault, I'd say some of the carpeting and furniture here is about due for replacement, but that's not to say that there's anything shabby about the place--there's not. And the most important thing about any hotel room--the bed--was exceptionally comfortable. (My wife, usually a restless sleeper, enjoyed the luxury of sleeping through the night.) Since our son lives only a block and a half away, the location of the GWU Inn is particularly convenient. It's also an easy walk from the Foggy Bottom metro station. Our thanks to Nadia (who checked us in and out) for her helpfulness and to the rest of the friendly staff at the GWU Inn. We'll be back!

A hidden treasure in a delightful neighborhood! The rooms are spacious and clean with very comfortable bed and bedding. Every staff member encountered was friendly and helpful. The staff makes a small hotel top notch with the welcoming, homelike atmosphere!

We stayed at Hotel George for three nights. It was a perfect experience.From the moment we checked in to the moment we left, the staff couldn't have been more helpful and professional. The room was nicely appointed. I highly recommend Hotel George to anyone.
