Decent Price - Expensive Parking

Only stayed here for one night - the hotel was comfortable, but the parking was somewhere in the range of $40/night. There is street parking around the hotel, but it requires a permit during the week.

Neighborhood Gem

The place was located in a treelined neighborhood of residents, homeowners, and students. The staff was friendly and helpful. Quiet with very easy access to the Metro, Rock Creek, Whole Foods and everyother place one could go in DC. Many restaurants within walking distance.

Great Hotel

The hotel was great, the room was clean and uses the space well. It surprisingly had a small kitchen, which I didn't use but could have if I wanted to. Highly recommended hotel.

Underrated

Check in was effortless and swift and I was upgraded to a king bed suite, a beautiful room with windows looking out toward Georgetown and toward the Watergate and the Kennedy Center. I had two meals in the restaurant and found the service and the food to be excellent. It's on a quiet side street in Foggy Bottom, just a short walk from the Foggy Bottom/GWU Metro stop and the shops and restaurants around that hub. I had meetings at the Kennedy Center, so access was simple: a short walk, only.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

I flew into BWI and took an express bus from the airport to the Green Belt stop on the Metro Green Line. While I had some platform waits, the ride to near my hotel in Foggy Bottom was only about a half hour longer than the shuttle ride from the hotel to the airport, and a fourth of the price!

Absolute excellent choice within price range

I used this hotel as a lay over to tour monuments. I selected the jr. suite which had a kitchen sofa bed and queen bed. Room was large and accommodating if my other guest would have stayed. It was a block and 1/2 away from Metro, which got you around practically to everything. I wish my stay was longer.

Excellent

The River Inn is tucked into a quiet neighbor. It was very clean and comfortable and was even furnished with dishes and utensils including a corkscrew and wineglasses. A Whole Foods and Trader Joes is within easy walking distance for provisions. When the blow dryer went out someone was in my room in under 5 minutes and it was changed out quickly. I would stay there again and have suggested that my sister check it out on one of her many visits to DC.
