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.

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.

Great location

Overall, a good find. Fantastic location. Very convenient to Metro. Staff was quite friendly. Not a huge value but a nice stay for a reasonable (DC) price. The suite kitchenette was well equipped for a longer stay. May be more than you need (or care to pay for) for a typical business visit.

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.

Nice business suites, good location

The River Inn provides nice suites, with a decently equipped kitchen (coffee beans and grinder are a nice touch, although it's hard to do the job neatly). Location is good, a quiet street 2 blocks from the Metro. Restaurant and bar are nice and the food is good. Staff very freindly.

Nice....but

When I fly to DC through Reagan I like to stay near Foggy Bottom. It is a convenient tube ride between this hotel and the airport or anywhere else near the metro. The rooms are fairly large especially for the price. My last stay however in December was difficult as I woke up one morning before a big meeting with no hot water. Luckily there is a kitchenette in the room so I boiled a pot of water and mixed it with some cold water and showered by pot. Lol. By late evening it had been repaired. While I know things happen the management should have done a bit more than an empty apology they should have provided a discount or some token as is customary. I would stay there again because it is comfortable and in a good location, but they need to work on some of the property issues.

Location makes it worth it

We stayed for a weekend and had a great time overall. The hotel was conveniently located - just a short walk to the Metro and a few minutes away from the main attractions. Accommodations were good, but nothing special. WiFi was spotty at best.

Wonderful staff

Everybody from the desk staff to the porters was extremely gracious. A young woman at the reception was outstanding in handling a series of transportation-related problems. The hotel itself is comfortable and impassably clean. I would recommend it anytime.
