We were referred here when our other hotel had to cancel reservations. Lucky us! This hotel is so far superior to where we were going to be. The kitchenette was great so we didn't have to eat every meal out. The beds were very comfortable and we had tons of room in the living room. The staff was amazingly friendly... More

We pre-paid for a week in a suite, following TridAdvisor readers' suggestions by requesting a quiet room on a high floor to avoid pets. But when we arrived, late as forewarned, it was clear that room requests are only read and processed when people check in. And since it was almost 10 pm, we got all that was left --... More

My daughter and I stayed here for two nights recently and absolutely loved our stay at River Inn. We loved everything, the location was superb! it took us five minutes to walk to the Kennedy Center from our room. About 5 minutes to Whole Foods and Foggy Bottom Metro stop. The front desk staff were very helpful. They helped us... More

I have stayed at several mini-suite hotels and they are usually anything but. Once you extend the sofa bed, you're looking at something that more closely resembles a cheap cruise ship cabin. The River Inn is different. Even with my two wild hyena children on the loose, the place felt roomy. As a bonus the staff is great and the... More

It is a great place to stay in Washinton DC. Rooms are big, with complete kitchen, which can be nice for family. Silent and safe neighborhood, close to the subway (Foggy Botton), supermarket and many restaurant in Georgetown. Definetly would stay again.

We stayed here during Christmas Eve and considering that many cafes would not be open during the holiday period, the staff provided us with basic complimentary breakfast which was very welcome. The hotel has a reasonably equipped fitness centre for a quick workout. The staff is super friendly and they allowed us to checkin early. The neighbourhood is good for... More

First, the staff is all extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are reasonably nice and it's in a great neighborhood. I love that it's so close to Whole Foods and Trader Joe's. The biggest negative for me was that the kitchen floor, pots, and spatula were quite dirty, but otherwise the room appeared reasonably clean. Seeing so many spots on... More

I researched where to stay until I was blue in the face. I selected The RIver Inn based on the reviews of others. I could not have been more pleased with my decision.

Wonderful suite with a small kitchen, amply stocked to cook for two. Microwave, full-size fridge, and cook top. Room was impeccably cleaned each day. There is both a Trader Joes and a Whole Foods within a couple of blocks, so I saved a lot by being able to make my own breakfast and some dinners. Kitchen is stocked with coffee... More

I get the classic hotel theory, but there were so many little issues with this hotel that are in need of updates. My first room had a sprinkler that was leaking rust, the security locks are all broken off and the floor was so loud that I had to change rooms. The gas ranges (!?!?!?) in the kitchen are circa...
