Overall, I was very happy with my stay at The River Inn! It's not a five-star hotel, so I didn't expect everything to be perfect, but I didn't find really any flaws that would go with a hotel that's just $100 a night in D.C. The bed was very comfortable, and other amenities included free water bottles, coffee grinder, and...

I liked the location of this hotel, within 30 mins walk of most monuments and George Town. What was disappointing was that on arrival we discovered a problem with the toilet in our room twice we complained twice they sent someone up with a plunger, this wasn't fixing the problem. Only when I went down to speak to front desk...

Particularly if you're going to the Kennedy Center, GW University or have business in the Watergate complex, as I did, The River Inn is a great place to stay. The general vibe of the rooms and restaurant and bar are quite sophisticated in a city where stodgy tends to be more the order of the day. While I've stayed here...

This hotel "gets the job done." Although the rooms are beyond spacious, the mattresses are notably low quality. Unfortunately, the thin comforters and super soft pillows are of even lower quality than the mattress. Furthermore, food is apparently only available until 10pm, which is unacceptable in a major city. Breakfast to the room was served on time, but there was...

We enjoyed our room. It's nice that it has a small kitchen and a roomy bathroom and dressing area. The restaurant at the hotel also has a good menu, great service, and great cocktails--If you're lucky enough to have Maram as your mixologist! I'd be glad to stay here again.

The room and staff were great. This was our first trip to DC and we felt 100% safe and comfortable in this area. Approximately 2 blocks from a grocery store where we purchased items for dinner and breakfast. The kitchenette is GREAT. They provide dishes, pots, pans and utensils. We were on the top floor and could see the Washington...

The rooms were very clean and set up in such a way to feel spacious, even with the couch folded out into a bed. Having a kitchen was great. The staff was very helpful, including the valet who tried to find ways to park our car with minimum cost. The location is convenient to the Metro and Georgetown. My only...
