Getting a suite for the price of a fairly standard hotel room in a capital city exceeded expectations. The location is central for DC and there is a metro stop nearby. The Inn is situated on a quiet residential street in the university area giving it a cosmopolitan feel which matches this boutique hotel. Reception staff are great and the... More

Hotel staff are wonderful, competent and helpful. The hotel lobby welcoming and it has a lovely restaurant (we didn't eat in there, though). Stayed in Room 706 which has a very good layout, good light, and exposure, plenty of storage and really comfortable beds. However, the room has seen better days (probably 10 years ago?) and is a bit tired... More

Great Location, close to everything (transportation, shopping, sightseeing, government, etc.) Could not have been in a better environment that was just like going home from work. This great Inn is tucked away in the block where renters and homeowners live. Near to the University that is full of students who don't create a fuss. Take the Metro if you want... More

We recently stayed at the River Inn for a long getaway weekend. It's a rare combination of locations, class, and value. First, we never rent a car in DC. We either walk or take the Metro. The River Inn is located just 2 blocks or so from the Foggy Bottom stop. Second, the hotel is located right in the middle... More

We had a very enjoyable stay at The River Inn. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, the complementary sangria we were offered upon our return to the hotel one very hot afternoon was most welcome. The room was clean and comfortable with a kitchenette. The location is close to Foggy Bottom metro so getting around DC was easy. I... More

On this trip to DC with my daughter and niece, we arrived late the night before our booking, and called ahead one hour. They went out of their way to work us into a standard comfortable room at midnight, and moved us easily the next day to our gorgeous huge suite looking out over Watergate bldg with some river views....

From arrival, staff were so friendly and helpful. Our rooms were beautiful - very large with lounge area and kitchenette. We were so well located. 2streets away from subway and WholeFoods (not used to this type of store in Aust) so many cooked and uncooked foods and meals to choose from. We loved our whole experience in Washington. From the... More

Last year we stayed at the Quincy Hotel which is part of the Modus Hotels chain and were very pleased with our stay. I therefore chose another of their hotels, the River Inn, also because rooms come with a full kitchen which we thought would be nice to have for our 9 days in DC. We loved the location in... More

Loved the location. Quiet charming residential area near George Washington University. Metro close by and also just a 15 min. walk to the Lincoln Memorial. Very clean and the bed was so comfortable. I will definitely stay here again. Restaurant food and atmosphere were excellent.
