The River Inn
Very Good8.0
Rooms need a little updating but in the main clean. We had a sofa bed for my son which hadn’t been changed from the previous occupants, but otherwise a good value hotel, friendly staff with excellent food. Good stay for a couple of nights in Washington.

Good spot with big rooms but hotel a little dated
Location is great on a pretty Foggy Bottomstreet close to the Metro stop, near shops/cafes and GWU. Room was really large and well laid out with a dressing area next to the small bathroom and a kitchenette in an alcove corner. Beware the noise from airplanes (it's under the National flight path!). Perhaps the double-glazing could be upgraded, but the old/tired bathroom and kitchen fittings are definitely long overdue replacements.

Perfect hotel in a great area
Perfect hotel, great location, lovely area, walking distance from White House and Georgetown . Also only one block away from the metro , on the silver line which goes to the airport and the Capitol. Kitchenette is great if you just need to chill and relax. Stayed one night , should have been longer! Staff lovely .

Old and Dated ... Be Careful ....
Disappointed after all the reviews we had read about the hotel. The outside and main lobby were great , however the room , although large enough was very dated. Everything felt 1960's and really needed a refresh. There was a leak into our room from the air con unit in the room above and although this was fixed quickly was one more sign of the age and condition of the building . We would stay again , after a refit but not again before ...

The River Inn
The staff at the hotel are very nice and friendly, the room looks very good and the location is great, beds are comfy. Biggest down side is the internet is poor and keeps freezing, the heating was noisy and the room was a little unclean, with the phone smelling of alcohol that I had to clean myself etc. A good stay but a couple of things that can be improved to make it a great stay!
