We have stayed at the River Inn twice now and both times have been a success. The service is top notch. Ross at the front desk is very helpful. We booked a king suite and had plenty of room to spread out. We love the neighborhood. Very easy walk to Georgetown and the mall. Lots of restaurants around.

Excellent hotel. Great neighborhood. The location is great. The staff is helpful and friendly. Super comfortable and clean. Since my daughter is studying in DC this hotel will be for sure the place where I stay every time I go to DC. I would highly recomend it. And the price was very good.

Stayed here as a base for a few days sight-seeing in Washington and found The River Inn a great place to stay. Great location in a lovely neighbourhood, with some nice restaurants in Foggy Botton (as well as 7-11 and a subway station close by) and only a short walk to Georgetown with lots of shops, restaurants and bars (though...

Not even there yet and people will not work or help you with the reservations. I wanted to make a small change in the reservation more than 21 days in advance but they told me it was against their hotel policy. They jury is still out on our actual stay, but not expecting too much on customer service! First time...

While on business in Washington D.C. recently, I stayed at the River Inn. Everything was delightful--the warm greeting when I arrived, my dinner at Dine, my comfortable room, the helpfulness of all staff, the location and setting, and the twinkling lights on the trees at the entry way. Although I have been living on the West Coast until recently and...

Everything about this hotel is great! Rooms, location...staff is the best! I was happy to "come home" everyday (stayed for a week). I wouldn't think twice about staying there again. Not easy to find a hotel and staff like that. Don't look any further. Thank you Ross, Dwight, Carlos and all the friends I made there

Great location close to Georgetown (charming area with great shopping and restaurants) Foggy Bottom (subway, groceries) and easy walk to memorials. Our room overlooked the Watergate complex, which was cool! Many restaurants and shops nearby. Rooms were clean and spacious, with a great kitchenette - fresh coffee with a grinder was a bonus! The hotel had washing facilities, a small...

Everyone at this hotel went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. Our suite was great -- clean, roomy and comfortable. The location was great too -- walking distance from the Kennedy Center and the Washington monument. Lots of restaurants nearby but the one in the hotel was excellent.

Have stayed here twice, once in November 2014 for three nights and again in January 2015 for two nights. I really enjoyed both visits. The River Inn is clean, quiet, and centrally located, and everyone is so nice, from the front desk to the breakfast room to the cleaning staff. My room was spacious and comfortable, with large windows that...

We were referred here when our other hotel had to cancel reservations. Lucky us! This hotel is so far superior to where we were going to be. The kitchenette was great so we didn't have to eat every meal out. The beds were very comfortable and we had tons of room in the living room. The staff was amazingly friendly...
