"Great, quiet, location. Clean, comfortable, room."
We chose the River Inn based on positive reviews. Wanting to prepare our own food, I looked only at hotels with a full kitchen. I had expected a full oven. They do actually have one or two rooms with a full oven, as I discovered when I asked, but I hadn't made a specific request for one. But, between the microwave and the stove top, we managed just fine. Everything was super-clean. Service was immediate (the stove-top in our particular room required matches. Within 5 minutes of calling the front desk, we had them.
The location was great for travelling. About a 7-minute walk to the Foggy Bottom Metro.
We didn't eat at the River Inn, so I cannot comment about the food.
I would have given 5 stars throughout, except for one issue on our check-out day. We did not get the wake-up call that we had requested. Luckily, we also had set our own alarm clocks, and were not dashing for a plane.
We had a room with two double beds and a sofa bed. I suppose that, theoretically, it could accommodate six people, but there was only one bathroom.
In addition to a dining table, there was another, large table, great for doing work. Having two TV's, one in the living room area and one in the separate bedroom, is a nice plus.
