We booked the River Inn for a long weekend visit to Washington and were thrilled with our stay. The staff were very friendly, accommodating and helpful. They greeted us warmly and answered all of our questions often with good suggestions for places to visit or eat. The room was large, clean and quiet. We were on the third floor looking... More

So this hotel was in a great location for the tourist at a reasonable price. Georgetown with its shops and restaurants is just round the corner. The Lincoln Memory about a 20 min walk. We walked from a restaurant near the Whitehouse in about 30 mins. So all in all an easy access hotel with subway just 10 min walk.... More

Second time staying here. Great service, great location, convenient to GW campus- we walked from my son's dorm to restaurant and back to hotel. Immaculate rooms both times. Very friendly and helpful staff, cute convenient bar in the lobby. More reasonably priced than other hotels in the area. Highly recommend.

My wife and I have have stayed there four time, three time for a week in 2011, 2012, & 2013, for a night this month. Our experience has always been excellent. The location is convenient, a short walk form Georgetown, Dupont circle, and the Kennedy Center. The generously size suites feature a well stocked kitchen and there's a Trader Joe's... More

The rooms are so large with kitchens and seating areas. We were in room 111 and the living room / dining was huge and bright. The separate bathroom and makeup area were off a hallway leading to the bedroom. Kitchen has a grinder and a jar of coffee beans so you can have fresh ground coffee. Full size fridge and... More

We loved The River Inn. Basically had the same experience as Reumert from Copenhagen (except we didn't drive): welcoming and friendly staff, with large, clean, very quiet suite (Rm 614) which had a great view. The bed and bedlinen were super. We had no problems with Wi-Fi. Loved the quaint area and 5min walk to Metro. Its a pleasant stroll... More

This hotel was by far the best place to stay at! Not only were the rooms great but the staff went, literally, above and beyond to make us feel at home and to accommodate us.

Placed right between the Mall and Georgetown in a quiet street the River Inn is a perfect spot for exploring Washington. We had a large family room with a simple kitchen and windows facing the Watergate buildings. Friendly and helpful staff makes the stay even better. Parking is to my taste too expensive. 40 USD a night, including weekend, where... More

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights. PROS: The room was a suite, with kitchen. This was great, because I was able to fix food so I didn't have to go out to eat for every meal. The room was very spacious, CLEAN, and comfortable. The location of the hotel was great--only a few blocks away from the... More
