Best Western Georgetown in Washington DC

Best Western Georgetown

While visiting Washington DC, our entire 6 night stay was at Best Western Georgetown. I felt that although the hotel was nothing special, it was definitely satisfactory. We were looking for the most affordable hotel with decent access to the Metro. Here are some of the thoughts of our stay at Best Western Georgetown that may help with your vacation travel bookings:

  1. When we booked the reservation in December 2013 for our check-in on March 26, 2014 and check-out on April 1, 2014, the Best Western was the most affordable average hotel at on average $250 a night for a Suite - 1 Queen Bed.
  2. The hotel room (specifically the bathroom, bed sheets, counter tops) were clean, the room size was larger than I expected.
  3. The furniture is old, worn, and in some cases broken. An example is of the 6 lamps in our room, one had a dangling light bulb, but still working. The dressers drawer had a broken bottom. Finally the closet's mirrored sliding door no longer slides.
  4. Can hear a lot of sirens (police, ambulance, or firefigher) through the single pane window. (DC does have a lot of these sirens on/off during the day as well).
  5. The small in-room kitchen area has a microwave, sink, and small refrigerator. The refrigerator and microwave are useful to turning leftover restaurant food into a quick midnight snack.
  6. Free daily continental breakfast. Juice, fresh fruit, pastry, bread, eggs (boiled and scrambled), cereal, pancakes, bagels, biscuits, milk, and much more. I ate it daily and found there to be a good variety of options. But like all continental breakfasts, it was nothing spectacular.
  7. About a 10 minutes wak to Foggy Bottom GWU Metro stop, so relatively convinent for tourists.
  8. There is a business center for printing and faxing. Printing was handy to print out tour passes. 2 free printed sheets per day.
  9. Free wifi and cable TV! That is a must these days!
  10. Provide basic toiletries for free and more (assuming toothbrush, etc) are requestable from the front desk.

Despite the items in the room that were broken, none of them were essential to our stay. I rarely use hotel dressers and there isn't an immediate need to constantly open and close the closet sliding doors. However, the fact it is broken still lowers my overall opinion of the hotel.
