- George Washington University Inn
As its name suggests, this Inn is in George Washington University's back yard. So, it's a great place for visiting families. It's also one of the closest hotels to the Kennedy Center and its wealth of cultural offerings.
There's a small fitness center, but no pool. And the front desk is accessed from either a driveway or through their trattoria. . So, stay for location, not amenities!
The rooms are large, and the staff is young and congenial. I liked the lemon water and candies in the lobby.Recommended for:

George Washington University Inn is centrally located to GW University, Georgetown, and Foggy Bottom Metro. The rooms are outdated and could use a refresher, but they are clean and you don’t feel as if you are in the center of the city. Metro accessible is very important in Washington, DC since the city can seem spread out if relying on cabs only. The hotel has one restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The restaurant also has a happy hour, which is great if you don’t want to go to a bar for a cheap drink. I don’t have a pet, but the hotel is pet friendly. Wi-Fi is free in all guest rooms because most people travel with some type of smartphone and/or tablet. The hotel offers complimentary upgrades if available for their rooms.Recommended for:

The best thing about this place seems to be its location – a couple of blocks from the Foggy Bottom Metro – though the neighborhood is cute enough. As its name implies, it’s in the heart of GWU territory, so you’ll see lots of kids in the streets here.
People seem to love the rooms with the kitchenettes, but I didn’t even know they had them. The room I was in had a fridge and microwave, which was enough for me. It’s not like I’m going to be whipping up gourmet dinners in a hotel. There is a Whole Foods a couple of blocks away, but honestly, couldn’t you eat out for almost the same price? In fact, nearby is Lindy's Red Lion, where they have great burgers, if you don’t mind the noise and sitting elbow-to-elbow with college kids. They serve beer (hence all the college students), but my favorite is their root beer.Recommended for:

First and foremost, this hotel is hard to find. Their signage is sparse, perhaps because of the quasi-residential nature of the neighborhood, but regardless I struggled to find the hotel.
That said, it's worth the hunt. The hotel has the charm of a well-manicured bed and breakfast while coming equipped with the amenities of a nice hotel. I found the room stately and sizable, and while the kitchen might not be necessary for all travelers it's just nice to have one, especially if you're staying for multiple evenings.
The fitness center is pretty small and they don't have a pool, though they do share one with a hotel just a few blocks away if you ask them. However, they are conveniently located near downtown Washington (including the famous/infamous K Street) as well as the White House. I personally love to romp around college campuses, so their proximity to GW University is a big plus for me. The Foggy Bottom and McPherson Square Metro stations also aren't too far away for travelers looking to get out and about.
This is a particularly good choice for prospective students and their families as well as business travelers, but it's a solid pick for anyone going to Washington.Recommended for:
