Best location for DC visit and mall visit. The excellent large rooms with kitchen would be suitable for family visit to the capital. Close to Foggy bottom metro so with a map provided by the Hotel of the Capital Mall one could have a wonderful visit to the museums and other DC attractions. It is almost walkable distance in fair...

And we are going back! Our daughter will be studying in DC so River Inn will be our hotel of choice. Great service, nice amenities and perfect location for us. Value of suite is well worth the price which we thought was very fair. Plus they have umbrellas for the unexpected rainy day!

I just returned from a nice 4 day weekend in D.C. Having been there before the only thing that could make this special would be the hotel and The River Inn did not disappoint. Nestled on a quiet tree lined street it made you part of the neighborhood which happened to be Foggy Bottom. This was a moderate sized boutique... More

We just spent 2 nights and 3 wonderful days staying at this hotel while in DC and before that, we spent a couple nights at the Hampton Inn by the convention center. Although we paid about the same for both hotels, there was absolutely no comparison, the River Inn is definitely in a class by itself. Liked: Spacious room and... More

We recently stayed at The River Inn in June. Our Saturday night flight was cancelled and rescheduled with an early morning flight. I called the hotel to cancel our Saturday night stay, which they took in stride. We arrived Sunday morning in jeans so we wanted to change. Our room was not ready nor was it the one we had... More

We loved the location, service, facility, room, everything. We stayed in the junior suite. It was a very good stay. This hotel is located within 5 minutes walk to everywhere essential - the Metro station (Foggy Bottom), and supermarket ( Whole foods and Trader's Joe). It is in walking distance to Georgetown shopping street (and Georgetown Cupcakes!). By the Metro,... More

This hotel is terrific. It is close to everything, but is located on a pretty residential street. The staff is wonderful and the room is quite large with a little kitchen. It is close to Foggy Bottom metro and lots of restaurants. It is also close to Whole Foods and Trader Joes if you like to bring food in. We... More

Stayed at the River Inn while at a conference at George Washington University. I was impressed with my room--it was huge and very well appointed. Love having a kitchen and separate living room. It felt like I had my own apartment. The staff was incredible-from the doormen to those that welcomed you at the front desk. Emanuel-one of the door... More

With my family we did a three week tour of the Northeast going to Boston, Montreal, New York and Washington DC syaying in hotels every night. By far, The River Inn was the hotel we all preferred. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the room very comfortable and well equipped. Also, the location is excellent. We were walking... More

Nice to get away, and in a quiet neighborhood. Valet parking is a little pricey but worth the stay here. They have a restaurant on site and as we didn't eat there but the drinks were a nice touch at the end of each day.
