I really liked this area. Close to Georgetown with good restaurants and close to the monuments. Clean and peaceful. The receptionists were very helpful and friendly. Continental breakfast good. Wifi working good. Housekeeping good. Rooms a little old-fashioned. Problems with the safe in my room. This was repaired in a few hours.

Great location for walking and taking the Metro. The staff was friendly and helpful. Would recommend this hotel to anyone that enjoys walking to Georgetown and enjoys the Foggy Bottom area. Valet parking is $40 but they did get your car quickly. I recommend leaving your car at home.

We found this beautiful place on hotels.com. we had never heard of it but it seemed to have the location and amenities we were looking for. We arrived in DC two hours early. We were unsure if we would be able to check into the hotel as they had a 3 p.m. check-in policy. Once we figured out the parking... More

5 minutes walk form Foggy Bottom Metro Station in a very quiet historic street. Friendly and helpful staff. We had a room with a kitchenette (Microwave/Fridge Freezer/Kettle/Tea/Coffe/ Water/Cips/bowls/glasses/knives and forks etc). There is a small grocery shop (7) around the corner or a massive grocery store nr Foggy Bottom metro about 6 minutes away. Apart from its own Restaurant there... More

We arrived in Washington for just 24 hours, and I had searched for a family friendly hotel, in an easy safe area, and this kept popping up. I would definitely come back.

We had switched hotels that weekend and ended up at The River Inn. Every single staff member was so welcoming and friendly! The hotel was clean and there was complimentary fruit infused water (which we LOVED). The front desk got wind of our recent engagement and surprised us with champagne, dessert, and a lovely personal card. We were so flattered.... More

Just returned from a 6 night vacation in DC with my husband and two adult children. Stayed in the One bedroom double suite. The rooms were really large and we had plenty room.

We booked our studio room on the same day that we arrived at night.
