Inspiring trip to DC

The only downfall was that I wanted the AC in the night but the system just blew hot air. The time of year was good however in that it wasn't hot outside and we didn't absolutely need it. The staff was super courteous opening doors and even going out of their way to assist with information.

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.

The Perfect Place

We returned to The River Inn after staying there 10 years ago. It's super close to the DC sites, yet in a beautiful quiet neighborhood. Super friendly staff as well!

Quaint area of DC

I love this hotel! The area it is located in is so quaint, you barely notice you are in a big city. The rooms are nice and roomy. Get your own kitchen, marble bathroom, seating area... perfect for hanging out after a long visit of DC. Trader Joe's is just a short walk away as is The Kennedy Center and Georgetown. Lots of great restaurants to be found in Georgetown. Metro is a short walk, so one has easy access to the whole of DC. Staff is really friendly and helpful at The River Inn. Would definitely recommend!

Go to 'Le Pain Quotidien' for a delicious breakfast. Trader Joe's is just a short walk away, too.

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.
