The River Inn
Ranked #11 of 142 Hotels in Washington DC
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 June 2014

We choose the River Inn based on the location. It is located in a beautiful neighborhood near the George Washington U. You can walk anywhere. The metro stop is a block and a half away in one direction and Georgetown is a couple blocks in the other direction. The staff is very helpful and courteous. The restaurant "Dish" is delightful The food is excellent. We could have eaten here every night but we wanted to explore. The rooms are nice and large. I wish we would have asked for a better view. If you like to walk I would suggest walking to the Lincoln Memorial and cover that area and take the metro home. we did it the opposite way and were pretty tired.
we plan on coming back and staying here again! Thanks

Room Tip: Ask for a room that doesn't face another building in the back.

The River Inn enjoys a privileged location and comfortable accommodations with very reasonable rates (not cheap, but then it's DC...). Frankly, it's ideal both for business and leisure. Their restaurant, DISH, is absolutely fantastic!!! Great food, good wine list and a relaxed, cozy ambiance. Make it a point to have dinner at least once while there.

The suites in the River Inn are attractive, comfortable, spacious, clean, and quiet. The location is optimal, convenient to the Metro, the Kennedy Center, national monuments, universities, and restaurants. The restaurant in the hotel is excellent, and the hotel's staff is professional and helpful.

This hotel was just beautiful !!! The place was close to the many attractions in Washington dc. The had a very good tour package that we took. The Lincoln Memorial, George Washington monument, Airospace Museaum and walking around the white house was very nice. It was a little busy when we had visited and a little chilly but otherwise a great visit and a great hotel to stay in Washington.

From the moment we walked in until the time we left the staff could not have been more friendly and accommodating. After one very warm day of touring we walked in to be greeted by name with a glass (or two) of champagne compliments of the hotel. We loved our spacious, clean suite with expansive views of Washington. It was only a twenty minute walk to the White House but in that twenty minutes you leave the business of the city into a pleasant, tree lined residential street. The restaurant was excellent as well (try the scallops). I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.

Stayed here for four nights in April with my family of four. It's a little off the main DC attractions but right on a subway line in a quaint neighborhood in the university area. I really like how close it was to Trader Joe's and whole foods, just two blocks. The rooms are spacious. The staff is extremely friendly. The rates were affordable for a DC hotel. I will absolutely stay here again.
