First impressions were excellent, with a warm and friendly welcome from the staff on check-in. I was expecting a standard sized room but was delighted with an apartment with a good size room and small, well equipped kitchen. WiFi was free and efficient. The hotel is close to shops, restaurants and the metro and if you like walking central Washington....

I went there with a group of friends. We got a large suite. It had a huge living/dining room (with a sofa bed), small kitchenette, bedroom with two double beds, small but cute bathroom. First impressions- looked Ok. It needed some updates but was fine for our needs. The fire alarm went off at 5:30am while we were there. Everyone...

My wife and two children stayed here in early January. From the moment of arrival the front desk staff were so helpful and friendly. Kimberly could not do enough for us and made us feel like we were staying in a private home. When I met Neal, the manager, I understood why the staff were so great as he was...

This charming hotel is close to the Metro, and a quick trip to/from Reagan Airport. We walked everywhere from Georgetown to the Smithsonian. Restaurants nearby in many price ranges and the Whole Foods Market is open late. We didn't use the kitchenette much, but it is surely an added bonus. Will stay here again.

We've now stayed twice at the River Inn. The rate was very good and the location was great for us - we had to be near the Watergate for business. It's also a short walk to the Foggy Bottom Metro, Georgetown, Kennedy Center and, a bit further but still doable, the White House and the Mall. The neighborhood is fairly...

My husband and teenage son stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed our stay. We walked home from the Lincoln Memorial with no problems. It's a couple of blocks from the metro station, but it's a very easy walk. The area is residential and extremely quiet. The staff recommended Maxime, a wonderful restaurant in Georgetown that was within walking distance...

We stayed at the River Inn for the Presidential Inauguration week. Great hotel, nice big suite, they have an excellent restaurant in the hotel.

We chose The River Inn for its superb location since we were in town to attend Swan Lake at the Kennedy Center. Close proximity to the Foggy Bottom metro station was a plus as we arrived in the city at Reagan National. Walking to the hotel even with our roller bags was fairly easy. While we did notice that the...
