We are thrilled to have found this gem and are already looking at dates to return. I googled romantic places to stay in D.C. area and I came across the River Inn and I'm so grateful that I did! I called Friday evening and spoke to the most friendly, courteous and pleasant Izabella. I checked availability and advised that it would be just a quick getaway for our wedding anniversary. I had to sort some things out and called back a bit later and spoke with Edgar (he remembered I had called earlier and spoke with Izabella and I was the lady celebrating my wedding anniversary) He promptly secured the room reservation for the very next day. He advised if the room is ready upon arrival we would be able to check in early. The River Inn is nestled in a quaint area in a great location(Georgetown, Monuments, TraderJoes), we knew we were going to love it as soon as we pulled up. We were greeted by the valet gentleman who was quite nice and then there they were - Izabella and Edgar! We also received assistance from Charos. We were checked in quite efficiently and sent to the top floor. The hotel is very modern but yet has a welcoming feel to it. Love the infused water in the lobby with different fruit - nice touch. Upon arrival in our room we were made to feel so extremely special for our anniversary with flowers, a tasty goody basket, special soaps and some 'bubbly' was supplied later in the evening - a special delivery from Edgar :) Also, Izabella promptly made dinner reservations for us at Sequoia upon our arrival for later that evening. Again, this hotel is a perfect location, the price is right, rooms are SO spacious..nice bathroom facility(love the magnifying mirror), kitchen in the suite - truly a home away from home. Perfect for pleasure or business. Most importantly is the entire staff will go above and beyond to make you feel so special. Everyone we met was so helpful to offer suggestions, things to do, etc. They truly love their jobs and it shows; that in itself will bring us back to The River Inn!
