Our Hotel Planner Expert Reviews of The George Washington University Inn

Our expert hotel planners periodically visit and review the hotels we represent in person. This is the most recent visit:
"Charming Hotel"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
This hotel is located next to GW University and has a quiet neighborhood vibe. Great area for walking or jogging. Close to Georgetown and the Kennedy Center. The hotel is clean, warm and decorated in a traditional style. They have a cozy Italian restaurant and bar at street level. Popular among student families and professors, this hotel is great for college tours, student groups and families.
