“Great Location!”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

We stayed here for the first time in May. What a gem! You are close to the National Mall, right around the corner from the Metro and down the street from the grocery store and a CVS. There is a train track that runs alongside the hotel but we never heard a horn just the click clack.

Room Tip: If you don't want traffic avoid the 2nd floor - the pool is on that floor

This a newer Residence Inn property, conveniently located just a few blocks form the major attractions. Rooms are new and spacious. Make note that during the weekend it is free to park on the street, which I did to avoid the $35 fee to park at the hotel.

We stayed at the Residence Inn in Williamsburg and thought we would try the one in DC. The hotel itself is not bad. We had a one bedroom suite. It has two queens in the bedroom and one bath. The fold out couch is like sleeping on an air mattress filled with lumpy cement. The toilet did not flush at first but maintenance fixed it straight away. One of the drawers in the kitchen was broken but we didn't use it anyway. The only thing that is nuts is the PARKING! If you drive in, be aware that the gate will open automatically even without a key card. We got stuck there when we saw the key card slot and thought we needed to back up. We did that and it was the most challenging driving experience in the world. Made it without a scratch. Upon leaving however the driveway is so narrow and twists so suddenly to the left that I ended up scratching my front bumper on my brand new Ford Explorer. So my $40 parking fed turned into a $200 repair bill. If you have a small car it's fine. SUV? Park next door or have someone guide you out of the garage on foot. I'm not exaggerating, it is the worst parking garage I have ever been in. I actually thought about suing them for damages but I would have lost my case. Just be aware that there is NO WARNING about the sharp left turn past the gate. Other than that the hotel is within walking distance to the major sights. Skip the free dinner, it's worse than prison food. Breakfast is good however.

We stayed here as a family of 3 with another family of 4. The rooms were quite large, with a sofa bed that was okay enough for an adult to sleep on..though a bit wonky as you might expect such things to be. The breakfast was very good, and very well attended, which made it slow going at times. A free dinner was also offered, to my amazement, which was also very well attended. The food was okay and helpful on the day it was pouring rain. The pool was big enough to have scores of children play in...way too crowded for an adult. It got a bit out of control at times, though and too loud...but this didn't bother the children. The hot tub was small but effective.There were laundry facilities which is useful. All in all a good stay. The walls were a tad thin, but not too much of a problem.

We stayed six nights in a two bedroom suite. The location is convenient, two blocks from the Federal Center Metro station, 10 minute walk to Capitol, four blocks to Safeway grocery story. Staff was very friendly since the check in. Cleaning ladies at the breakfast buffet were polite and always smiling. We didn't find any problem for eating since we only ate lunch out while we were sightseeing. Hot breakfast was included in the price and we cooked our own dinners. The store downstairs was a life saver the first night after a late arrival. We could buy sodas, beer, cookies and microwave food.
I would highly recommend this hotel for families who don't mind walking.
PS. My husband did not like the buffet. He would have liked cheese, ham and bread breakfast but the rest of the family (including our 1 1/2 year toddler) agree that the chocolate muffins were delicious!

2nd trip to this hotel in a month. 6 night stay in a king- studio. 3rd floor room was on street side, facing the NASA building, so no issue with train noise. Gym is well appointed and pool is nice for a dip, great if you have kids. Breakfast is standard fare with scrambled eggs, some type of potato and some type of meat (sausage, bacon, etc), plus cereal, fruit, pastries, etc. Coffee in the lobby all day or Starbucks is around the corner and down the block about 1/4 mile (next to Metro stop, Federal Center SW). Front desk allowed for a late check out as I had a early evening flight. Nikko at the front desk was particularly helpful. Only blemish is the lack of dinner options; pizza place next door but that's about it.

Let me start by saying if you have read my other reviews this trip included my family of 6. 4 Kids ages 13,12,10 and 8 at time of travel. We traveled here for a 3 day 2 night trip to see the sights. The hotel was extremely clean, very safe and secure and the staff was pleasant and helpful with any questions you may have had. The room had very comfortable bedding and the quickly brought us extra sheets and pillows. Over the years we have begun to bring a twin blow up bed on our trips from Dicks that we spent $30 on. Best $30 spent. As kids get older the sharing of a sofa bed is not exciting to 2 older brothers. The parking was tight as a gnats ".ss". We have a Buick Enclave and I scratched it on the wall just pulling into the parking garage. Probably somewhat my fault but by the looks of the wall it seems as if scrapes pulling in are a common occurrence. Just be aware. The breakfast buffet is second to none. All kinds of choices. If you need SOY milk there is a CVS 2 blocks. Now for the sightseeing. The American Indian Museum is 2.5 blocks. Science Museum is 4.5 blocks door to door. Natural History and American History are about 7 blocks. All walking distance even with young kids. For the Lincoln Memorial, White House or the Zoo EMBRACE! the METRO. The METRO is safe, fast and super convenient. $18 per person for unlimited trips for a day. Well worth the money. There is a metro stop 3 minutes on foot from the hotel on the Blue Line. (Hold your breath for this next part!) We used the Metro to go from our hotel to the Zoo, Then back to Smithsonian, then to dinner 1 stop past our hotel, then back up to the stop by GWU Hospital to walk to the Lincoln Memorial, then from the Federal triangle stop back the the hotel for the night. All in 1 day! Imagine trying to cover all of this walking with 4 kids. Others have written that there was a concern regarding close dining options? Yes there are not many choices within 50 feet but if you are willing to trek 10 minutes on the METRO there is an abundance of options. 1 stop further on the Blue Line out from the capitol, literally 6 minutes total travel time is a downtown street with 10-12 restaurants. Once again use the METRO. We loved the hotel and the trip overall. I would highly recommend this hotel and DC for a family trip.
