Great Location and Great Staff

Stayed April 3-6. Entire staff was welcoming and sensitive to our needs. Location is 2 blocks from Foggy Bottom Metro. Would recommend The River Inn and plan on returning.

Great value in a prime location

The River Inn provides great value in the prime Foggy Bottom area. IThe spacious rooms are set up as efficiencies with fully equipped kitchens - especially nice for a longer stay. The only quibble is that there was no information in the room with the standard description of amenities and services.

Absolutely wonderful!!

Perfect for the 3 of us (husband, son and me). Location was great and appreciated that the hotel was on a quiet street. Room was spacious, loved the layout; we didn't feel cramped at all. Having a kitchen was a huge help, we could have a quick breakfast then head out for sightseeing. We ate dinner at the restaurant twice and enjoyed the food, especially the diver scallops and mushroom risotto! Staff were friendly and helpful. We walked or took the Metro which was easy to find and a short walk away. We would definitely stay here again. Loved Washington, D.C.!!

A very pleasant surprise!

The River Inn was just wonderful. The hotel is nicely decorated and clean as can be. The rooms are all suites and therefore quite spacious. It was so nice to have a full size refrigerator and whole coffee beans along with a coffee grinder. The staff was wonderful and over the top helpful. We will definitely stay there again.

Very nice hotel

The hotel is very nice, locate in walking distance from white house (15-20 minutes with 3 years old kid). The area is very nice, looks like Europe. The only concerns is parking fee which is $40 per day...

True Hospitality

The hotel is chic, and on a quiet street with well tended gardens, just a short walk from the Metro station and the Kennedy Center. The kindness of the staff makes it even more special. The food is terrific. There's a rain shower in the bathroom. The bed is divine. Even the sofa bed is exquisitely comfortable.

Comfortable stay

Although this is a small hotel and does not have the amenities larger hotels offer, our family had a wonderful weekend stay at The River Inn. The rooms are very comfortable and spacious, and the kitchenette was a great help with making breakfast in the room. We also enjoyed the hotel restaurant on our first evening there -- pricey, but both the food and the wine selections were excellent.

Buy your breakfast ingredients at the nearby Whole Foods instead of the 7-Eleven!
