Part business part vacation. Nice location close to metro, staff very friendly, quiet . Only issue we saw was odd stains on carpet near closet in entry area. Nice area to stray with Whole foods nearby ad restaurants.

This boutique hotel is uniquely located in D.C. positioned nearby Georgetown, Kennedy Center, and the Mall; all within walking distance or a short cab ride. The Foggy Bottom Metro station is a two minute walk as well. Friendly staff and great location, need I say more.

My wife and I spent 6 nights at The GWUI in May 2016. It is of the older style, its décor a bit dated, but is spotlessly clean and well-run. It is in the University precinct which adds to the atmosphere. It is very close to the Metro station, cafes and Wholefoods which was great as we had a little...

I was here on business and booked via client. The location is wonderful, right next to the GWU campus and, thus, located amongst a good deal of restaurants, etc., but in a quiet neighborhood.

“The location is a bit tricky as this hotel is tucked away next to George Washington University -- plan to pay $47 per night for parking -- OR attempt street parking -- just beware of signs/permits and times if having your car on the street. We got lucky both nights and saved the $$.”
