My daughter and I stayed at the GWU Inn because of its convenience for a college tour. We arrived early and were upgraded to a suite (with a small kitchen and nice living room), at no extra charge. The hotel is on a very quiet, tree-lined street (New Hampshire), two blocks away from the GWU campus and the Foggy Bottom Metro station (on the Blue line, which leads directly to the DC airport). It is within easy walking distance to the White House, and a longer walk to the Lincoln Memorial and other sites at the Mall. The staff was very nice, and the rooms were large and clean. The lobby is small, but that doesn't matter. The only drawback was the 6 am fire alarm, which fortunately turned out to be a false alarm. Presumably that does not happen often. I felt safe walking around the area after dark. The restaurants within easy walking distance have cheap, college-type fare, but the food was adequate. A bus from the Foggy Bottom Metro station provides service to the great restaurants of Georgetown. I will stay at the GWU Inn again.
