Staff were amazingly helpful. Supermarket, bottleshop and metro station close by. There is also a restaurant and they have a varity of beers and wines... More

This was our first time at "The River Inn", the last leg of our US holiday, and we had an excellent all-round experience at this superbly located hotel. It is situated in a quiet, leafy, road with nearby mews houses/apartments and provided an ideal base for getting to all classic Washington sights during our 4-day stay. It is also served... More

The hotel is in an ideal location, within walking distance of Georgetown and fairly close to the Metro. The front desk staff were welcoming and extremely helpful making phone calls to retrieve my lost luggage and even emailing me to let me know when it turned up. Foggy Bottom safe and pleasant area.

We stayed at the River Inn for six nights and were very happy with the choice. The hotel is on a quiet street and located between the capitol mall and Georgetown. We were able to walk everywhere easily (20 minutes to White House, 15 to Georgetown Harbor, 5 to Kennedy Center, 5 minutes to Whole Foods or Trader Joe's and... More

We just spent three nights at The River Inn and had a fantastic experience. We booked the inn based on past Tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. We arrived early and were pleasantly surprised that a room was available. Our room was on a higher floor and had a view of the Washington Monument and Watergate. The room was... More

This was my third stay at River Inn. The location is very convenient for me. My daughter lives in an apartment on 24th street. To visit each other, we pass through an alley across the street from the hotel. On this particular visit, I stayed for 2 weeks. After a five day trip to Canada, I returned to River Inn... More

This was our second stay at The River Inn and it was just as good as the first. The staff are extremely pleasant and helpful.

It had been fifteen years since my last stay at the River Inn; I'm pleased to report, it's better than ever. The location is hard to beat, with the Metro two blocks away, and Whole Foods and Trader Joe's both nearby. My queen studio was on the 8th floor, with a view of the Watergate complex, the top of the... More

We stayed two nights at the River Inn and this was our second stay. We would certainly stay here again - the front desk staff and housekeeping staff could not have been more helpful and welcoming. With a Metro Station within a couple of blocks and easy walking to Georgetown, the location was perfect - not least because Foggy Bottom... More
