Great location near GWU that allowed easy access to the Metro. The Metro will get you to practically everything a tourist would see. Staff very friendly and helpful. Suites clean and spacious. Access to washer and dryer nice. Quiet, historic neighborhood. Limited dining in area but a few good places walkable. The suite has a kitchenette. Highly recommended.

My wife and I wanted to do something special for our 18th wedding anniversary, and we soon settled on a trip to Washington, D.C., a place we both love. I immediately thought it would be nice to stay at the River Inn, where I had often stayed while doing grant reviews for NIH. I had nothing but good memories of this lovely hotel in a quiet Foggy Bottom neighborhood, and our Anniversary trip was indeed another memorable experience. The River Inn is still a welcoming place for a visit to D.C. I have to start by commenting on the professional and friendly staff--always ready to help or provide directions. Our suite was nicely furnished, utterly spotless, and extremely quiet. Everything worked well. We truly felt at home. My only suggestion would be to improve accessibility to the front entrance for folks who have difficulty with stairs. However, staff members were always there to assist anyone who needed a hand. Overall, I don't think visitors to the area can do any better than to book their stay at the River Inn. Lots of good groceries, restaurants, and all that Georgetown has to offer are nearby. Our thanks to the staff and management for making this past weekend a truly Happy Anniversary!

I had a very nice stay at the River Inn! From the moment I arrived I was greeted and given a card that welcomed me warmly. If I needed anything, there was someone always available to help. When I checked out of the inn, Bettina asked me how my stay was and wished me safe travels. The staff was very hospitable and made my visit to DC enjoyable!

We were supposed to fly in late at night to DCA but the flight got delayed and eventually airline cancelled it at the last minute. It was very frustrating and tiring.. I called the River Inn to let them know, we would not be able to come that night. Zelia, who answered my phone call, was so helpful and understanding. Next day, we finally made our way to DC. We were welcomed by Ashley and her advice to visit the Spy Museum was for real! My girls really enjoyed it! There were many cafes, restaurants, and my favorite Trader Joe’s within walking distance. The Inn is located within a nice quiet neighborhood. Also, I hope I get this name correct-Brandie? (Sorry, if I got the name wrong.)Who helped us check out was also very efficient and kind. Thank you all.

We are unfamiliar with neighborhoods in the DC area. We picked The River Inn after comparing room rates for other hotels using TripAdvisor and couldn't have been happier with our selection. The hotel is located in Foggy Bottom, a quiet walkable neighborhood. There are restaurants nearby, a 7-11 (small convenience store), Trader Joe's (grocery store) and a Starbucks several blocks away. Our trip was during a time period when temperatures felt over 100 degrees Fahrenheit. There were 2 bottles of water when we arrived in our room. Air conditioning worked great, plenty of hot water for showers, the room was clean, mattress and pillows were comfortable. We were surprised with the kitchenette. It was stocked with table settings for two, including glasses, plates and flatware. A Keurig with some complimentary pods. There was even a gas cook top. You could order grocery delivery if needed. We started making fresh ice right away. It's a pet friendly hotel. We saw numerous guests with dogs. There were also plenty of families with smaller children there too. ALL staff were super helpful, knowledgeable about the area and pleasant to talk to. We would definitely stay there again.
