A bit tired and worn but the staff were warm and friendly. The room was large, comfortable and well equipped with a decent bathroom. The hotel is in a charming, relatively quiet area within easy reach of the metro system. We felt there was a lack of places to eat close to the hotel. If you enjoy walking, it was well placed for sightseeing. Just across from the metro station is possibly the best food market/deli we have ever visited, selling a vast array of groceries, wines/beers and take away foods to meet all tastes, so the lack of an oven was never a problem. If you want to be in the middle of the action you may prefer Georgetown but if you want a quieter location at a very reasonable price then this represents good value.

Hi, thank you very much for your review on The River Inn! I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed your suite, as well as the location of the hotel. The furniture in the rooms are getting a bit worn, so we are currently in the beginning stages of upgrading our suites. You'll have to come visit us again to see all of our updates! Also, we are walking distance to many of DC's sights, such as the White House, Lincoln Memorial, and Georgetown. I'm sorry that there aren't as many restaurants near the hotel, but in return we are in a nice, quiet residential area that is filled with history! As for the market/deli you visited, I believe you are speaking of the Whole Foods Market. It has been a great addition to the Foggy Bottom neighborhood. Again, thanks for your great review, we hope to see you again sometime at The River Inn!
