Located in Foggy Bottom, close to the bus stop and the Metro and walking distance or $7 cab ride to Georgetown. We spent 3 days being typical tourists and loved the location. The staff was friendly and the kids loved the room. We had a suite, with small kitchen that helped with a few meals. We had a room with... More

The staff were great and there was ample room for a family of 5. We were in DC for Spring Break and the location was perfect...it was near the metro and in a quiet area. The room was clean an staff was wonderful. We would definitely stay again.

A pleasant and tasteful hotel in Foggy Bottom. We booked a room at the River Inn because it is not a big box hotel and its proximity to the Kennedy Center and the shopping district of Georgetown. The Inn is easily accessible from the GW Parkway and located on a quiet, leafy street just a short walk to the Kennedy... More

Love this hotel. It is small, quiet, excellent staff and perfect location. It is very easy to navigate DC from this hotel. The Metro is close by and there is always a taxi or two out front. There is also a grocery store a block or so away. The hotel is located in a residential neighborhood which makes for a... More

Stayed at River Inn this week. River Inn continues to be my favorite place to stay in DC. It is about 2 blocks from GWU campus, but could be convenient for any visit to DC as the metro is 2 blocks from the hotel, and what makes it even more convenient is that the metro stop is Blue line, meaning...

We enjoyed the spaciousness of our suite, the surrounding neighborhood and closeness to the Metro. The suite had a comfortable living area, dining table and full kitchen. There were large flat screen TVs in both the living room and bedroom. My daughter was comfortable on the pull out bed. The hotel is in a lovely residential area and close to... More

The River Inn is located in the quiet neighborhood of George Washington University and the The Watergate Hotel. It's doesn't have a view of the Potomac River, as their name suggests, but it is a safe neighborhood to walk about in the evening and enjoy seeing some of the historic homes in the area, and it is conveniently only a...

The service at the River Inn is exceptional - from the door man to the desk clerks to the maid service. The River Inn is an excellent location in the Foggy Bottom area - close to delicious restaurants, Whole Foods grocery, and all the sights DC has to offer. I will continue to stay at the River Inn, but I... More

Located in a quiet, cozy residential neighborhood of brick townhomes, the River Inn is perfectly located just blocks to Georgetown and the Metro. The Smithsonian stop on the Metro will take you right to the Washington Monument. Two markets are nearby (Trader Joe's and Whole Foods). Spacious living room area, large couch and kitchenette. The outdoor bar at Circa around... More
