Enjoyed Most: The location was great
Monika Oct 09, 2016 San Mateo, CA, United States
Other Comments: Our first trip to Washington D,C. We had a great time visiting all of the great historical monuments. I enjoyed our stay at the end. My husband loved the location in Foggy Bottom. It is very centrally located to Georgetown, Dupont Circle, The White House and other monuments are within walking distance. The staff was great and breakfast at the Inn was a plus for us. Everyday we would start our day with the buffet breakfast. Great coffee too! I can''t wait to return. Kudos

Enjoyed Most: It was a very enjoyable stay. Very friendly staff. Convenient location.
Other Comments: An older facility but very sizeable rooms. It could use a few upgrades but it looks to be a very busy hotel within the campus of GW, so it may be hard to keep up with the maintenance.

Enjoyed Most: Quick check in. Huge size of room. Also, the little snacks in lobby were great.
Other Comments: Adjoining restaurant was terrible-they forgot our order and then took 90 minutes to bring food.
Monique Aug 31, 2016 Miami, FL, United States
Enjoyed Most: The proximity to all the museums and places of interest
Other Comments: My only comment was that the waitress didn't not tell us there were other items available for breakfast. She told us about the buffet for and all the buffet was eggs, bacon sausage and bread. The buffet was not worth the 15 pp.
