A Suite in the City

In order to stay near Frank while he was recovering at GW Hospital, I stayed two nights at The River Inn, which is two blocks from the hospital. I found it listed on several online hotel reservation sites, and I booked a suite for $229 which is a lot of money but actually reasonable for that section of DC. The list price was over $400 and frankly, I think that's more than it's worth. It's a nice hotel but not that much comfortable than a Days Inn, for example. Of course, having a kitchen is convenient and offers a way to have a break from restaurant food.

They also charge $22 a day for parking! That sounds like a lot but again, it's in an expensive area. Even parking at the hospital garage is $17 a day.
