10.0 Wonderful
We stayed in a suite with a full kitchen. It was great having a toaster, microwave, fridge, and tableware. The room was large, and great for a breakfast meeting. There is shopping nearby, so we did not need to go out for breakfast.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Nice big room with kitchen (separate room no less) and small dressing room near bathroom. Comfy bed and couch. Nicest woman at checkin who was extremely helpful with maps, suggestions, answering questions. Great location close to Foggy Bottom metro station and While Foods and good restaurants and near to Georgetown
Cons:We were excited they had free bikes which we signed up for but after going a mile or so we realized they were in bad shape and not really safe so we turned around and went back and went for a walk instead. The helmets weren't safe either.
8.5 Very good
Pros:The hotel suite was very nice, clean and comfortable. The location was amazing, very quaint and charming neighbourhood only 5 min away from the subway, which made travelling to all parts of the city easy.
Cons:The staff were very friendly but we noticed that the toiletries and towels were not replenished regularly during our stay, which was disappointing as it was not a cheap hotel. It was nice to have a kitchenette but the fridge was old and very loud, as was the AC unit, which was also very loud.
9.7 Wonderful
Cons:The bed was too soft.
2.0 Poor
Cons:At midnight before the morning I was flying to DC I received an odd (non-customer-facing) zendesk email informing me that River Inn had overbooked and would not honor my reservation. We called (800.468.3578) and were told that I would be re-booked at 1 of 2 nearby hotels—and I would be informed which by email before 5:30 AM. No email arrived. I called the number again at 8:30 AM (as I boarded the plane and after sitting on hold was eventually assigned to Washington Circle. Customer service was very helpful but looking back on it, the system wasn't able to make their own promised deadlines, causing unnecessary anxiety. When I arrived at the new hotel, there was more trouble: the room they had booked was only available for one night and then I would have to move so they downgraded me to a room so I could stay for the duration. Oy vey!
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:I absolutely love this hotel. The bed was so comfortable. The room was clean and nice The distance to the Metro was so convenient. The kitchen was so useful. We grabbed groceries at Trader Joe's up the block for breakfast every day.
Cons:Parking. We ended up finding a parking garage up the block for $16 a day which was great.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:An amazing location in DC very close to metro and G'town. A very modern hotel with an attractive lobby and quaint suites. While I did not have an opportunity to enjoy most of the services during my short stay, I trust they are well-maintained an equal to other parts of the hotel. I will definitely return.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Everything, great location, friendly staff, very clean, great service!
