Ashley at the front desk was so helpful at helping us navigate the city and metro! The ENTIRE staff were so friendly and genuinely happy to see us each morning and we almost became like friends getting to know one another over coffee in the early morning... We really didn't want to leave

You can’t go wrong with the River Inn. Excellent location since it is walking distance to the waterfront, the metro trader’s joe etc.. The front desk staff was awesome especially Deja who was so patient explaining the metro. Unfortunately their restaurant was closed but there are restaurants around the area. Definitely will return to the River Inn when I return to Washington .

The room is very sweet and nicely laid out. I really appreciated the kitchen, since I often bring food with me due to dietary restrictions. I look forward to my next stay!! The bed was wonderful and the shower head - WOW - It was a great experience!

I traveled alone to The River Inn this last visit. Either myself and my family have stayed here at least five times, and we are looking forward to our October visit. The rooms are good size. The location is convenient to the Foggy Bottom Metro, Georgetown and Pennsylvania Avenue. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The Kennedy Center is nearby with convenient, free jitney transportation available by the Metro stop.

We love staying at the River Inn every time we come to Washington D.C! The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are large and have kitchenettes. The hotel is on a quiet, tree lined residential street that is a nice respite from the busy city and the heat. The Foggy Bottom location is perfect, with all of its restaurants and proximity to the metro station, as well as to George Washington and Georgetown Universities, and the monuments.
