Just a 20 minute walk to the Lincoln Memorial. And a very easy drive in and out of town. A very small but comfortable hotel. Good restaurants in the area because it is a college neighbourhood! I would definitely stay here again!

Coming down to Foggy Bottom twice a year on business, I always look forward to staying at the GW University Inn. The staff are wonderful, the rooms are clean, and the menu at their restaurant, Notti Bianche, is ample and delicious. Location too is incredibly good, a five minute walk from Foggy Bottom Metro, and very quiet (the way many...

My sister and I stayed at George Washington University Inn when we were visiting DC for about a week just before Thanksgiving. The location is fantastic - it's a relatively short (and pleasant) walk to the National Mall, and is in the historic Foggy Bottom district, and we greatly enjoyed walking around the neighbourhood. A metro station is close by,...

Me and my grandmother we went to DC on Thanksgiving.We plan to stay there for 2 nights.Friendly and nice staff. Room is clean. The design inside the room look better then in the pictures. Microwave in side the room. And the location only 2-3 minutes walk to CVS or small grocery store. Price is ok.

We arrived at this hotel after a 5hr drive, to a small driveway, where parking to check in was limited to approx 3 cars. You are not allowed to park yourself, it's Valet parking only at $40 per day plus tax. The hotel is dingy and old looking. The reception was ok and the welcome was good. The room was...
