DC is an expensive place to stay. We were looking for a suite (we had a little one with us) and The River Inn seemed to present a good compromise between quality and price. It turned out that it wasn't really a compromise at all - the River Inn is a great hotel. It's a little out if the way,... More

Do not let the exterior deceive you. Everything inside this hotel sparkles. The furniture, beddings, bath and all. The refrigerator, stove, kitchen, dishes and sink all sparkle. I can go on and on. It was a pleasant surprise that made for a very relaxing and enjoyable visit for me. The additional bonus is the closeness to Foggy Bottom, Whole Foods... More

We booked the River Inn based on the positive reviews on Trip Advisor and it did not disappoint. Very well equipped and sizeable rooms and close to the main attractions and Metro. We found the welcome really good, great advice on where to eat out and what to do.

Exceptionally polite and helpful staff. Wonderfully comfortable suite. We had a king size bed in bedroom and queen pull out in living room where our teenage daughter stayed. Plenty of room for all. A full kitchen. Great location.

We had a suite, king size just a few weeks ago and this was a great spot for families or for business travel. You are right there by everything. Cabs are available right out front. It's an older place, so don't expect brand new, but if your focus is DC then you'll forgive that. I would happily return with my... More

I don't need to duplicate earlier reviews-Look no further if planning a family trip to DC. I visited with my daughter and two young grandsons. We stayed in a suite-plenty of room and a full kitchen-We walked to the Lincoln Memorial and other sites-and the metro was very convenient. If you've read any of my other reviews you know that...

I've stayed at The River Inn many times. The staff are consistently responsive, friendly and courteous. The rooms are immaculate, well appointed and quiet. It's a reliable place for a trouble-free, no surprises stay in very pleasant surroundings. I particularly appreciated the gift basket waiting in my room on my most recent trip -- an apple, orange, banana and two... More

Based on some of the negative reviews we were pleasantly surprised by the comfort and convenience of our room. The room was clean and provided the tools necessary to prepare food in the room. The cleaning service was top notch. A non-stick frying pan would be a nice addition. The hotel is a few blocks from the metro station which... More

We chose the River Inn because of its location, close to Metro, food, groceries, and in a safe area. It was all that and more! The staff was very friendly and most helpful. Our room was comfortable and clean, although bathroom was older, with a full-sized refrigerator, stovetop, sink, toaster, and microwave. It came in handy when a virus visited... More

We booked a one bedroom apartment for our family group of 3 adults and 2 children many weeks before we travelled to WASHINGTON. When we checked in we were told that we were being given two separate hotel rooms as the one bedroom apartments were booked out. This actually suited us better. The rooms weren't interconnectiong but they were side... More
