It’s a feeling

Welcome to the River Inn

A Washington DC Institution

With a selection of spacious, luxurious and well-appointed suites and studio rooms to choose from, you can easily make yourself at-home at The River Inn. We aim to relax and refresh you whether your visit to Washington DC is for business or pleasure. We know a thing or two about old-school hospitality too, having been a fixture of our city’s popular Foggy Bottom, Georgetown neighborhood since 1956. 

Our personalized, traditional family-orientated service means you can count on receiving the best care during your stay. The River Inn experience is one of peace, quiet and unhurried hospitality from the moment you leave our picturesque tree-lined surroundings to enter our stylish period foyer. 

Over the years, we’ve hosted countless visitors to Washington DC’s government and cultural centers. We are an easy walk to the Kennedy Center, Georgetown’s university and hospital campuses and Foggy Bottom’s quaint shops and restaurants. The National Mall, Smithsonian Institute and White House are all just a quick Metro trip away and we are the ideal base from which to explore the unmissable Potomac River and C&O Canal. 

Offering a genuine home-from-home spirit, our loyal visitors return to The River Inn trip after trip after trip to suggest that we are truly their second home in Washington DC.
