I recently stayed at The River Inn and absolutely loved it. The location is perfect. Feels out of the way while still being in the city. The Foggy Bottom metro stop is just a few blocks away, there are grocery stores and restaurants nearby and Georgetown is within walking distance. It's on a tree lined residential street and feels very homey. I stayed in a one bedroom suite looking toward the Potomac. My room was huge! Kitchenette (no oven but did have a microwave, cooktop, toaster and fridge), dining area, living room, bedroom with king bedroom and a bathroom with a separate vanity. The living area has a wall of windows and was so light and open. The staff were all friendly and helpful. I could go on and on about how much I enjoyed staying at The River Inn - I will definitely be back.

This was the first time I ever felt like writing a review before I checked out. From the moment I got into the room, I was wowed by the space. You will definitely feel at home here. The staff is beyond great. I am not the easiest guest, I typically come to hotels with special requests (late checkout, package deliveries, vehicle valet). The staff at Rive Inn accommodated EVERYTHING I requested with grace. There's a housekeeping person named Carmen. THANKS FOR ALL. I highly recommend this properly.

I’ll start by explaining that I would have give them 4.5 stars if I could. The front desk and valet service was friendly. The neighborhood is mostly residential and has a great historic ambiance. We stayed in a one bedroom which was very large besides the bathroom. Very close to the metro as well. The building is older and things like the rugs and kitchen cabinets could use an update, but for the price is understandable. My only complaint is that the A/C unit made an awful clunking sound every time it turned off. It scared my daughter and woke her up in the night.
