Excellent

The River Inn is tucked into a quiet neighbor. It was very clean and comfortable and was even furnished with dishes and utensils including a corkscrew and wineglasses. A Whole Foods and Trader Joes is within easy walking distance for provisions. When the blow dryer went out someone was in my room in under 5 minutes and it was changed out quickly. I would stay there again and have suggested that my sister check it out on one of her many visits to DC.

well located & reasonable DC hotel

Stayed only one night, but was happy with the staff, check-in service and friendliness. There was a restaurant on site, but did not use. We had a queen size bed with sleeper sofa. Bed was comfortable and room was quite large. Had a`nice desk to sit and read at,as well as the comfortable sofa.I was able to stay up late and read, without disturbing my husband with the light Small but adequate kitchen. We just used the fridge to keep a few bottles of water/soda cold.Small but adequate bathroom with rainshower fixture in shower. Metro 2 blocks.

great location, very clean, with friendly service

Perfect for an overnight visit. The staff was very friendly, and helpful. Lovely, peaceful, neighborhood with clean sidewalks & plenty of cabs. The furnishings were a little tired, in particular a very scratched leather headboard, but we loved the fresh coffee beans & grinder that accompanied our AM setup.

River Inn made our trip to D.C fantastic

Here we were in Washington D.C needing to accomplish so many things in a short time. The folks in River Inn helped us every step of the way. We never drove in D.C before and the staff made it work amazingly well. Staff were so kind and taking care of us. We were steps away from every place to go. So much more reasonable rate than other hotels. It is worth it.

Great location

we loved the hotel. Lots of room to chill after long days of sightseeing and visiting GW university. Rooms cleaned and beds turned down each night, the staff was informative, helpful and polite. Close to metro and shopping.

Great location/Great staff

I usually don't write reviews, but we especially enjoyed our stay at the River Inn. The location in Foggy bottom was great; within walking distance to Georgetown and the Monuments. The hotel is only a few blocks from the Metro. The kitchen was a plus, but we ate all of our meals at the nearby restaurants. The staff was very friendly and helpful!
