Residence Inn Washington, DC/Capitol

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 May 2014

This place was so ideal for it's location to walk to all the things we wanted to see in D.C. We ended up not renting a car, and it proved to be a good choice since we were able to get to most places on foot (we did take a cab once or twice).

It was nice that they added free food a few nights during the week, but it was not what I would call gourmet food. The neighborhood has very limited choices for restaurants. This is usually when we had to take a cab.

Foe lunch the best bet was in the Smithsonian just a few blocks away (The Mitsitam Native Foods Cafe ~ a foody heaven)

When was the last time you stayed in SW DC? Exactly!

Located in the SW business/gov't quarter, across the street from NASA. Mostly quite if coming in on a weekend. Loading/unloading for 3 cars. Street hourly pay parking available(free after 6:30pm) to avoid $35+ tax parking in the garage. Safe enough neighborhood to park on street.

Nice lobby/brunch area. The line can get long for the waffle station. More than 2 waffle machines should be made available, especially on the weekend.

Typical Res. Inn decor that you have come to know and love, but unique enough for each property.

We had the1 bedroom suite w/ 2 queens. Try to get front of building to avoid any possible train noise(commercial). Never heard anything, Probably stop running after a certain hour.

Room gripes: never to seem to have enough hooks in the bathroom. Never enough trash cans.
Not a big deal, but still... Towel shower rod falling down. Now if they could just replace that tacky coffee table flower arrangement! Def a fail!

Hotel is surprisingly close/convenient: 3 blocks to The Mall( American Indian Mus. and the Botanical Gardens the closest. Metro Train - Fed Ctr SW - 1 block.

Friendly/helpful staff makes this choice an easy one to choose for my next visit in town.

Room Tip: Stay in front of building, upper floors.

Front Desk "Mr. James" and Concierge were fantastic & super friendly. The only reason I give this hotel a 4 is because it was difficult to find restaurants close by that were open. It appears everything shuts down during the weekend. Here's a couple of tips that may be helpful:
1. Do the Double Decker Bus Night Tour. The monuments & memorials are beautiful at night.
2. Stay away from Union Station when it gets dark, the undesirables come out.
3. Pack snacks & drinks for your walks.
4. Most museums are free, take advantage of it.

We stayed for 3 weeks in April 2014. The high light of this hotel has to be the excellent staff. The service was always outstanding friendly and helpful. The hotel is only a couple blocks from a Metro stop. This was our first visit to Washington DC and the location made sight seeing very convenient.. Breakfast was provided every morning a nice way to start your day. Dinner was provided 3 days a week.

We - a family of 3 stayed in May 2014 at this wonderful hotel. The best part of the hotel was its location - wonderfully located to all the usual touristic attractions. This was our first visit as a family to Washington and it was important for us to cover as much of the city on offer together. Our concierge at the hotel was great in suggesting an evening tour of the city - thoroughly enjoyed it. The hotel itself was very efficient and well-managed. The room was a 1-bedroom studio apartment with a lovely kitchenette - it was indeed very nice to have our own finger food during the breaks and with a mall right round the corner - we were spoilt for choices. The breakfast was okay, nothing to write home about in terms of choice but can't complain. The space is limited at the breakfast cafe and there is always a sense that we may be preventing someone else from a table if we did not eat it fast and scoot - I think maybe that was the real issue for us rather than food being served at breakfast which was quite alright, come to think of it.!

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.
