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!

An unexpected surprise!

The tucked away location made this a little hard to find late at night but the drive-around was worth it once I checked in. I found a very large, nicely furnished room with huge windows and sparkling clean, fairly upscale bathroom. Unexpectedly I also found a well equipped kitchen - sink, fridge, microwave, two-burner gas cook top and all the dishes, mugs and cutlery etc I might need. A very nice bonus was that the coffee-maker came coffee beans and grinder.

cozy hotel

Hotel is tucked away in Foggy Bottom and close to everything. Staff was lovely. The only negative thing I will say is the the silk headboard in our room was scratched up and threadfare. It left a poor impression.

Cozy Washington Inn

This hotel is well situated near the Kennedy Center of the Performing Arts, with a complimentary shuttle service there from the nearby GW University Hospital next to the Foggy Bottom Metro Stop. It's a nice quiet neighborhood (at least on Thanksgiving week-end when I stayed there) and the staff were friendly and helpful. The restaurant was also excellent with delicious offerings (though the entrees were stronger than the appetizers) and a nice wine list. Great to have the kitchenette suite for in room breakfasts with fresh coffee beans and grinder provided; good grocery stores nearby.
