River Inn in Washington DC

The River Inn is an absolutely charming boutique junior suite hotel around the Foggy Bottom/ Kennedy Center area. It was convenience to walk to Georgetown and to take the Metro to anywhere we wanted to go. I definitely want to stay at the hotel again. The staff was very accommodating and offered help with anything. We valet parked the car and left it until we were ready to leave DC.

Location and comfort

We got this hotel for 50% off or else we would not be able to afford staying here! Every room is a junior suite with bedroom, living room/dining/kitchen separated. The hotel provides you with coffee maker, beans and a grinder with enough pots, pans and etc to actually make your own meals! This is two blocks from Foggy Bottom Metro station so it's a quick walk to restaurants and whatever in nearby tony Georgetown. We would love to come back and make this our base for DC visits.

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.

Great place to stay!

We couldn't have been happier! We did have some minor issues with the air conditioner, but other than that it was a great place.

Trader Joe's is a great grocery store just a 5 minute walk away. Since the rooms have a kitchen, it works out great to get supplies at the store and eat in the room.

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.

Girls Trip to DC

If you want glitz, marble and red carpet everywhere then find yourself another hotel. If you want an excellent value, comfortable beds and sofa beds, clean and shiny everything throughout, large comfortable sitting and dining space, a small studio kitchen with a clean refrigerator, a Trader Joes and Whole Foods market 5 minute walk for grocery runs, the cutest tree lined street in Foggy Bottom, safe neighborhood, a 3 minute walk to Metro, a 5 minute walk to FB historic district with fabulous restaurants, a small cafe on site, free shuttle to/from Kennedy Center just around the corner, George Washington University Hospital a block away, and staff that are courteous, helpful and kind, then you might want to stay at The River Inn. The only hang up for us was that the kitchen counter outlet wasn't working and we had to plug the coffee pot in an outlet near dining table. We didn't use the stove but used dishes and refrigerator and HK stocked the fresh coffee beans and clean kitchen linens each day. I will recommend this hotel to family, friends and colleagues.
