A happy discovery after six years of visiting my oldest while he was at GWU and continued to live in DC afterwards. Last summer he moved to 25th and K and we found The River Inn. It has quickly become our home away from home and preferred place to stay when we are in Washington. I hate to give up... More

I had a wonderful stay at the River Inn. Everything was very clean and everyone was extremely helpful and friendly! I don't travel by myself very often and they went out of their way to make me feel comfortable, both behind the desk and in the restaurant. It was nice that it was walking distance from everything. On my second... More

I was not disappointed by my return stay at the River Inn. The studio queen on the 8th floor was roomy, light, and welcoming. Comfortable bed, good desk to work at, good Wifi and great staff. So attentive and nothing seems too much trouble for them. The kitchenette is a plus to someone staying more than a night or two... More

We had a studio queen room on the third floor. The room was very clean, large and comfortable, with a fully-equiped kitchen and bathroom. The staff at the front-desk was also very attentive and helpful. This hotel is equiped with a restaurant that served us a delicious brunch. It also has a very good location, in the midst of Foggy...

I almost never write reviews, but our family of four (my husband and two teenage daughters) had such a great time in DC staying at the River In. We had a suite with two double beds in the bedroom, a living room and dining area, and a full kitchen. We could not believe the space! The location is perfect, nestled... More

Clean and well maintained hotel. If you like a small hotel with very attentive staff, this is for you. Stayed with my children. We liked location. Close to Metro to see sights and easy walk to Georgetown Water District for dinner. Only criticism is that there are no kid friendly TV channels in the evening. I had to pay for... More

The hotel I really wanted was booked and they recommended this hotel. It turned out to be less expensive and the room was actually a suite. The bed was comfortable and bathroom was exceptionally clean and roomy. In the morning, I found real coffee beans and a grinder in my kitchen! Nice buffet breakfast in the morning with a Washington... More

A great location on a quiet street in Foggy Bottom. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was spacious, comfortable, and clean. Walking distance to metro, GWU, Georgetown, Whole Foods, Trader Joe's and many restaurants. The restaurant did not serve brunch on Sunday, which would have been a huge plus.

An amazing location in the heart of Foggy Bottom, right in a neighborhood. We felt very safe walking at night. The room was very comfortable and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. No complaints at all! The Subway was a short walk. Georgetown was nearby, as was Trader Joe's and Whole Foods. Highly recommend this fine hotel!

A warm welcome is provided from all staff members. The room is very large. The sleeper sofa is less comfortable. The marble tile bathroom is just not my taste ( I am almost allergic to it) and it doesn't really fit into the style of the hotel. Breakfast is not included and the parking almost 40$ (inclusive tax) is the... More
