The River Inn

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The full kitchen was great. The only problem was the gas stove did not light so we had to get some matches. Only having 1 working elevator (the other was being renovated) was just a little bit inconvenient at times. The location is perfect - 2 blocks from the Metro and grocery stores, restaurants, near the Mall. Very clean, quiet; I can't wait to visit DC again and stay there.

Visiting our son

Extremely helpful, friendly staff, super maid service. Front desk personnel prompt and accommodating! The older bartender is rude and not helpful, however management handled immediately. Food in restaurant 5 stars! Super safe georgetown neighborhood close to everything! We noticed they are also pet friendly with special rooms for pets and owners, Valet super friendly and always there to help. We would recommend this wonderful boutique hotel to all.

Charming neighborhood

I was in D.C. for a conference. This was an acceptable alternative to the pricy hotel the conference was held at. Despite the elevator not working properly and the lukewarm shower on the second day, the stay was pleasant enough. The staff was very friendly and welcoming.

All around great place to stay!

I give it five stars for everything except amenities, gave that a 4. And that has to do only with wireless connection which was weak or sporadic. However, overall this was a great place to stay due to location, cleanliness, size of room and courteous staff. I'd stay there again.

First visit to DC

It is a nice hotel with all you need. Short walk from the Kennedy Center. Foggy Bottom Metro station is only 2 blocks away and walking to the Lincoln Memorial takes 12 minutes at a relaxed pace. Did not try the restaurant as there are many options nearby. Housekeeping ladies stay until 4.30 pm and are very helpful. The room is spacious, we did not get a nice view but no big deal, for that you have to go out! The carpet, TV and furniture could be updated, it is not a deal breaker since we used the room just to sleep. We would stay here again.
