Tourist trip 5 nights. The room was clean, quiet and roomy. The Location was perfect (take my word for it and save the research time)-- you could walk to Georgetown (15 min), walk to the Foggy Bottom Metro (7 min), walk to the Mall (20 min to Lincoln Mem.) We bought breakfast groceries at Whole Foods (next to Foggy Bottom)... More

I spent 5 days at The River Inn with my husband, (March 23-28). It was memorable. The hotel offers everything that I was looking for: great location, nice room with cozy sheets and fluffy towels and an efficient small kitchen. The hotel restaurant is cute, nice bar. The staff was super friendly and kind. It was important for us to... More

We had the pleasure of spending four days at The River Inn this weekend. I have stayed at dozens of hotels but have never experienced the quality of accommodations, customer service and convenient location that The River Inn offers its guests! Since my work is in the event planning industry, I have had far too many experiences in setting up... More

My wife and I just returned from five days in DC where we stayed at the River Inn in Foggy Bottom. This was a great location for us. It is situated in a quiet neighborhood of older homes with young families and urban professionals two blocks from the metro and within easy walking distance to several great restaurants. Our room...

Wonderful hotel in a delightful area of the city. The room was huge, and we had an amazing view over the city. The bed was extremely comfortable, friendly staff on the check in desk, free wifi - what more do you need! I just wish we had stayed longer to have fully appreciated the room - but we were only...

This lovely hotel has all the amenities of a boutique hotel, the comforts of home, splendid views & a sweet location. When I arrived, the young woman at the front desk helped me locate the nearby Whole Foods and a hair salon. If " a room with a view" is important to you, ask for a room on the 7th... More

It happens every time: I look on Expedia or Hotels.com for a hotel room in DC and find a meager selection of rooms in mediocre hotels at high prices and rooms in luxury hotels at totally outrageous prices. Then I remember the River Inn, go to its website, and book there. It's a solid 4-star place with big rooms (often... More

Great location, barely a ten minute walk to the Kennedy Center.. We enjoyed our king suite - spacious, very comfortably furnished, and clean. Staff members were welcoming and professional. Complimentary WiFi was a plus. We had the buffet breakfast in the restaurant and service was friendly and prompt - the scrambled eggs were good and arrived swiftly. .
