“Good Value near GW”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2014

My teenage daughter and I spent two nights here while visiting GWU. I chose the hotel for its location and reasonable price and was pleasantly surprised. Although we stayed in the older tower and our room certainly could have used a renovation (including re-carpeting), it was clean, spacious, comfortable and quiet. There's a Metro stop, CVS, Dunkin Donuts and Whole Foods nearby and we were very comfortable walking around the neighborhood at night. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Try to get a room in the newer tower. If that's not possible, get a room away from the elevators...

Had a great stay here in June 2013 and I was amazed at how nice the hotel and room was for the price we paid.

The location is really close to the White House, and the National Mall where many of the main sights are. Bring your walking shoes though as it's more convenient to walk between these than get the Metro. It's a few blocks to walk to the Metro, but pleasant as it's a nice area around GWU.

We had a double double room which I thought was a very generous size, bathroom was lovely, and the kitchenette was really handy for breakfasts and snacks. There's a CVS next door so it's very handy to pick up groceries.

I'd highly recommend staying here.

First time I stayed in Washington DC. I relied on these reviews to help me make the decision to stay here. Price was good and location relative to the Memorials was also great. The hotel was better than I expected. Very nice people and all of them were very focused on making sure we were happy. Ate at their restaurant for a late dinner + morning breakfast buffet. Food was okay, but most of all convenient. Most importantly, the room was clean and comfortable. Not sterile and plastic. I traveled with my wife and would stay here again without question.

Excellent spacious room with the added facility of the kitchen meant that we had a choice of dining in or out - kept exceptionally clean on a daily basis. A special mention for Malcolm on reception who was always friendly and very helpful - even let us stay in our room a little longer on the last day even though the hotel was fully booked. Excellent location for walking to all the sites but also near Foggy Bottom Metro for those who prefer to let the train take the strain. Would definitely stay here again.

I'd expected something along the lines of a Days Inn or Comfort Inn, but this was on a higher plane! Very spacious, clean room - a suite, actually - at a very good price (in mid-February). The whole wing of the hotel seemed to have been renovated recently, so everything was sparkling clean and bright. The fixtures and furniture are all high grade - no IKEA furniture here.

Great location in Foggy Bottom - walking distance to the Mall, to Lincoln Memorial, etc., and four short blocks to the metro. And very accommodating, helpful and friendly staff - from the bell captain to the front desk.

We would certainly come here again.

Room Tip: Be aware that this hotel is really two separate buildings. You have to access one from the other via...

After a lot of research, i decided to take my chances with this Hotel. being my first visit to Washington DC, i was a bit skeptical of what lay in store for me. However within the first 30 minutes of my arrival in the Hotel all my fears were laid to rest. I think for the location and the standard offered by the hotel ..it is a great value for money. Infact in my entire US trip and staying in assortment of hotels, this was one of the best hotels. If you are visiting DC for touristy reasons (as i was) these hotel is very conveniently located to most attractions. Depending on your inclination you can walk to the White House then do the entire Smithsonian strip down to Washington monument and further down to Jefferson Memorial. The room was beautiful and large and so was the bathroom. The only thing that i felt a bit quirky was that I had to cross a parking area of some sort to reach my tower, but really i think it is more of a issue of the way the building has been constructed so really there is very little the management can do there...(but it was hardly an issue anyway). For those who love their drinks...there is a liqor store right next door as well as a CVS pharmacy where you can also pick up stuff to eat or drink!! There is a Starbucks in the vicinity (In the Elliot School Campus) as well as a Dunkin Donut. The nearest landmark is the RED CROSS building!! I loved the stay and hopefully i will be back :-)

We stayed only for one night (since we had been accepted to visit the White House) and needed a clean, affordable and centrally located hotel in near the mall. This hotel fits those items. We were given a VERY spacious room (plus: overlooking the street in the 4th floor and with a view of the Washington Monument!). The staff was very professional and all the areas including the room very clean. It was a short walk to the Lincoln Memorial or the Foggy Bottom metro station.

Room Tip: Try to book directly or through AmEx...I have had better experience than booking from general websit...
