The River Inn is a nice little hotel nestled among houses with the George Washington uni just around the corner. With a uni nearby, there are food places and supermarket near the hotel that you can purchases groceries and cook in the hotel. Wifi is free. If you are on a big bus tour, you can drop just outside the... More

I booked the hotel through Booking.com and everything promised was delivered. Very recommendable. It is in a walking distance from Lincoln Memorial and the White House to name some. Loved staying there.

My family of four stayed here during school vacation week for four nights. I booked it thru Expedia plus airfare back in February. I determined it cost less to book everything thru Experdia as opposed to booking the hotel thru the River Inn's website. Upon checking in the front desk staff informed I would have saved 10% if I had... More

Great stay at a fantastic hotel, thanks to Ross on the front desk. When I checked in the guys on front desk were really pleasant, polite and good-humored. I asked for a high floor, and because they talked with me and found out I was here to do volunteer work, I ended up with a free upgrade to a fantastic... More

The River Inn is a nice hotel at a reasonable value in downtown DC. The rooms are a little older but very comfortable. The location is great for nearly all of that DC has to offer. Parking is challenging in DC and it was nice to have valet parking at the hotel.

Great welcome, staff really friendly and helpful with good advice. Location ideal. Easy to walk to Georgetown for bars and restaurants as well as easy access to the National Mall. Room was a good size with a kitchen - great coffee maker! Will definitely stay again.

Helpful and friendly staff go the extra mile to make your stay at the hotel and visit to DC enjoyable. Free Metro passes offered were a nice touch. Very quiet and relaxed setting despite the hubbub all around. Only negative was the noise from the planes incessantly flying along the Potomac in and out of Reagan International (but the hotel...

When I arrived at the River Inn late afternoon to check in there was some confusion about my reservation and the hotel expected me the night before. Although the hotel was full because of a conference in town, the staff at the front desk did not miss a beat and made a quick call and provided me with a room... More

After 7 hours in the car, the last bit of our travel was in the heart of Washington DC. The last half hour was wild driving in an unfamiliar place in heavy traffic. By the time we arrived at The River Inn, we could not wait to get out of the car. The hotel has precious little parking upon arrival.... More

I picked River Inn to stay with my family of 5(18 yr old daughter and twin 15 yr old boys)on our visit to DC because of it's location near Foggy Bottom Metro stop and the the fact that they had a suite and I was not disappointed. The staff was friendly and informative and the Suite had two double beds... More
