We booked this property thru a groupon, so we got a good deal on cost. What we did not know is parking would be $40 plus tax. Also something poured all over the front of our clean car, and we have had trouble getting off. The room was spacious with frig and microwave. Bed was extremely hard, and toilet was...

I should not review this place because too many people may want to stay here. Desk upgraded us to suite upon arrival (kitchen unit/living room area). House keeping, front desk, security, maintenance.......every one is friendly and pleasant. Great value for price.

The staff is amazing and extremely helpful with directions and things to do. We also have two large dogs (doberman and chow) and they were extremely welcoming! They even have a communal water bowl with all the puppy guest's names, and the pups got a care package! We will absolutely be coming back!!!!!

I had a basic room with two double beds. It had a TV, a small fridge with a freezer, coffee pot, the bathroom was small but clean, and everything worked. The AC worked and wasn't loud and clangy like many places I've stayed. The staff was fantastic! I give the overall experience 5 stars, not because it's a 5 star...

As soon as my family and I walked in, the receptionist was very sweet and it was simple to quickly get up to our room. Very nice staff, very tolerant of our family dog, who was a bit over the 40 pound pet limit. We stayed for a night in a suite room, which was plenty bit enough for the...

The staff were friendly and really helpful. The Inn was quaint and scrupulously clean. A lovely restaurant is attached to the hotel. Great location for getting around. Walking distance to the White House and Monument. Perfect to visit George Washington University too.

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.
