This was our second year celebrating the new year at the Bavarian Inn. We had a great time. All the staff and the accommodations were excellent as always. My wife and I really enjoy staying there, the location overlooking the Potomac river is very pleasant and relaxing. We would recommend this hotel.

We enjoy the Bavarian Inn several times a year. When we want to get away, it somehow comes down to the Bavarian Inn every time. We have recommended the Inn to numerous friends and people in course of discussion. Those that tried the Inn, thanked us for the recommendation and would go back again. This year we wanted something different...
