We loved our stay at River Inn. The room was a great size, beds were comfy, lots of fluffy towels, nice products in the bathroom and all really clean. Having a kitchen was great as we travelled with children and we had a fab view. The staff were so helpful and the location was great, Foggy Bottom is really pretty with Georgetown and the major sites in walking distance. There is a Whole Foods Market down he road as well as a good variety of places to eat out. I thoroughly recommend the River Inn and would definitely stay again.

Great place to stay

We had booked a suite at a discounted rate and it was great. Very spacious. Hotel was in great location. Walking distance to the metro and stop for one of the bus tours. Buffet breakfast was very good and staff were happy to accommodate us even when we went down late one day

Washington DC

Prices are generally high in DC and this was quite high for the facilities they offered. Rooms were very spacious with an excellent lay out. We had to change rooms after our first night and we noticed that the bathroom in the second room needed a bit of an upgrade, although not too bad. By far the best thing about this hotel was the staff. They were first class and would go out of their way to help.

Really pleased I stayed here - work and touring around DC

The room was slightly tired looking, but was spotlessly clean, and exceedingly comfortable - big fridge and kitchenetter - and on the 8th floor had a great view out to the Potomac river in the distance. For me this was the perfect location from which to discover DC on foot, and the staff were there to help in any way possible. I would have liked the bar to stay open for guests after 10pm in the week, but no big deal. This street in Foggy Bottom is a quiet residential area, but a very short walk to the metro and a Whole Foods, and near Georgetown and in the other direction the whole of DC is very accessible. I was staying for work and pleasure, and this was the perfect base. Thanks to the staff for being genuine and being so helpful. Good solid free wifi too.

Très bon hôtel

Nous avons passés 4 nuits dans cet hôtel, les chambres sont spacieuses et propres, dans la cuisine, il manque des ustensiles pour cuisiner convenablement, à croire que la cuisine est de la deco pour les américains Hôtel très bien situé dans un quartier calme, et proche du métro , le personnel de l'hôtel est vraiment très agréable, vraiment un bon séjour. Seul bémol, le canapé lit n'est pas confortable.
