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.

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.

Downsized

My room was downsized from 2 Queen to 1 Queen on arrival by the front desk without a reduction in the cost. This also happened to a friend who arrived the following day. This seems a little too green. Otherwise, outstanding service by the staff for me. Older hotel with kitchens and updates. In house wine somolier. It is a 2-3 block walk from the metro and one - two from the bus stop in a beautiful neighborhood. 20-30 minutes to Reagan airport by metro.

Great hotel for downtown DC

It was great. The room was ready to go when we pulled up and they offered affordable valet service which made everything really easy. The room was great and very clean. Shower was amazing.

Homeboy get-together

Three of us old buddies from different parts of the country came to DC for a weekend, all of us at the River Inn. My room was a nice size, clean, well-appointed, nothing I would've added. Staff (front desk) were very helpful and knowledgeable, esp. about transpo to Dulles Airport, which is way, way out of the city. Restaurant was open for B, L & D and had good food. Location is ideal for going downtown or to Georgetown. I'd unhesitatingly recommend this hotel.

The DC Metro stop is 2 blocks from this hotel. It can take you to pretty much any of the areas you'd want to visit for business or touring, other than Georgetown, which is walking distance. Parking is tough in DC anywhere downtown or on the Mall. So use the Metro.

Trip with friends

very close to the metro (under 10 minutes walk, two blocks), SUCH comfortable beds, a rain-style shower (?), awesome view of the Watergate Hotel, and very kind staff! I actually stayed there about 6 years ago, and unknowingly booked the same hotel again this time. It was good the first time, and also good the second!
