This is a very comfortable and quiet hotel. Spacious rooms and nice neighbourhood. Very good value too. I've used it a couple of times. It's a mini apartment. I was there during the worst of the weather, but still very pleasant.

From the moment we walked in, the staff was very friendly and willing to address any questions we had, even though it was busy being Valentine's Day. The room was very nice and clean. The bed was very comfortable and the rainfall shower head was great (plus some great smelling lotions/soaps were complimentary to the room). Georgetown and Kennedy Center... More

We were very pleased by our experience at the River Inn. The snow storms greatly impacted our planned arrival and departure times and the folks River Inn were generous and accommodating. They were especially polite and pleasant to work with all the way. We visited with family in the room which was set up nicely for socializing and the kitchenette... More

Not impressed with barman's rude comment about tipping advice.... being a visitor in DC one does not need to be "educated" about preferred tip on bar tab for 3 glasses of red wine! Especially when prices are absolustely ridicilious expensive! One can purchase a good bottle (or 3) for what being served per glass at this restaurant. Not the way... More

We have stayed here before and have always been very satisfied. Unlike many hotels in the area it is on a residential street and you aren't awakened by sirens and ambulances coming to the GWU Hospital. We had a junior suite with full kitchen, separate bedroom, separate vanity area two tvs and full length mirror. It was immaculate. We had... More

Stayed here with family for a weekend. Room was a bit odd in that it was set up like an apartment. Full kitchen and large bath. The shower water pressure was very weak and towels a bit threadbare. Doorman often on cell phone a failed to open door when I had my hands full several times. Also there was an... More

We have stayed at the River Inn twice now and both times have been a success. The service is top notch. Ross at the front desk is very helpful. We booked a king suite and had plenty of room to spread out. We love the neighborhood. Very easy walk to Georgetown and the mall. Lots of restaurants around.

Excellent hotel. Great neighborhood. The location is great. The staff is helpful and friendly. Super comfortable and clean. Since my daughter is studying in DC this hotel will be for sure the place where I stay every time I go to DC. I would highly recomend it. And the price was very good.

Stayed here as a base for a few days sight-seeing in Washington and found The River Inn a great place to stay. Great location in a lovely neighbourhood, with some nice restaurants in Foggy Botton (as well as 7-11 and a subway station close by) and only a short walk to Georgetown with lots of shops, restaurants and bars (though...

Not even there yet and people will not work or help you with the reservations. I wanted to make a small change in the reservation more than 21 days in advance but they told me it was against their hotel policy. They jury is still out on our actual stay, but not expecting too much on customer service! First time... More
