Stayed here for a week during a business trip to NASA HQ. Location was perfect for a warm summer week - right across the street from HQ, so no sweating while walking in a coat & tie. However, it is not close to much of anything else. It is south of the mall by several blocks and there are very few restaurants close by. However, the metro is just around the corner, so you can get to places fairly easily. Plus, it is always nice to walk around DC in the evenings.
Rooms were typical Residence Inn - clean and spacious. I was on a high floor, so I didn't hear any traffic noise. I did need to keep the drapes closed tho' as there was an office building right across from my room with direct views into the windows. The evening snack/meals on Mon-Weds were okay (not provided Thurs-Sun). They included a very basic salad (just lettuce & dressing) and a main (pasta one night, chicken marsala another). Nothing special, but they'll fill you up if you're not picky. However, they were quite busy as it appears a lot of people staying here took advantage of the free meal. The morning breakfasts were also okay and typical of Residence Inns (scrambled eggs & fix'ns).
The staff was friendly and was able to provide directions and a few recommendations for restaurants.
The only complaint I had was with the thin walls. I think the room next to me (the wall right at my bed's headboard) was empty. However, the radio alarm would go off every morning at 5:30am and stay on for an hour until the timer ran out. It was noticable enough to wake me up every morning thinking it was my alarm (it wasn't). I think whomever was in the room last left the alarm on. After the 3rd morning, I asked at the front desk to see if they could check into it and they said they would, but nothing changed.
Anyway, a typical Residence Inn - doesn't stand out other than the location if you need to spend time at NASA HQ. There are loads of other hotels in the area that are closer to nightlife (restaurants, etc.) if thats why you're in DC.
