We spent 4 days in Washington, DC for one of our short family getaways. We chose The River Inn based on all the great reviews. We were not disappointed with the great staff. We arrived a few hours before official check-in time, but our room was ready and we were given our card keys without delay. Originally, our room was to have a kitchenette. The room we got initially did not have a kitchenette. Izzy, one of the great staffers working the reception area, addressed that issue immediately and before we knew it, we were in a 2-room suite with a kitchenette. Any time we needed a car service for transportation, the front desk arranged it without delay and the car service was always prompt. We had an issue with the business center printer but the front desk staff remedied the situation and our boarding passes were printed within minutes. The hotel is clean and comfortable. Amenities include free Wi-Fi (with an excellent signal), business center, laundry room (one washer, one dryer and each wash/dry costs a total of 12 quarters), fitness center with a handful of cardio equipment and physioballs and a tv, and a restaurant on site. No pool. We did not dine in the restaurant, Dish, but the menu is displayed in the elevators and included many appealing offerings. Housekeeping was quite good during the week (zero complaints), not so much on the weekend (kitchen trash not emptied, bed not entirely made, some used towels not removed). The room was comfortable. The AC is noisy clicking on and off but you get used to it. Effective room-darkening shades. The kitchenette had a microwave, fridge, a 2-burner gas stove top, and garbage disposal. Dishes, glasses, utensils, pans included. Coffee beans, grinder, coffee maker. The bathroom was tiny for a 2-room suite and the bathroom door almost needed to be slammed to stay closed. The sink was cracked. Peeling ceiling. The tub was tiny and was made to look even tinier with the huge rainfall shower head. Much of the laminated furniture had gouges and scratches. The beds were comfortable and firm with plenty of pillows. Our son was able to stretch out on the pull-out sofa bed and sleep comfortably. We were on the 8th floor and had some great views. This Inn is located in the midst of a residential street. Front desk staff were very professional and generous with their time, giving us maps and recommendations for area restaurants and attractions. Georgetown/the waterfront was a comfortable walk as was Washington and Dupont Circles. Many great eateries in the area including SweetGreen, Whole Foods Market, Circa, and Devon & Blakely. Many Starbucks locations in the area!! Wish they would add a pool and update the furniture and bathroom, but we would stay here again. Great staff, service, and location!!
