I can't say enough about how pleasantly surprised we were by our stay at the Residence Inn/Foggy Bottom! As soon as we saw the quaint neighborhood and experienced the friendliness of the staff immediately upon our arrival, we were just so happy with our choice. I'm one that really believes the hotel can make or break your visit, and in this case, it helped make the trip much more comfortable and enjoyable.
We have two kids and the suite with kitchen was great for keeping drinks and snacks. The kids enjoyed the rooftop pool, the breakfast room was lovely and there were many choices, something for everyone. We stayed on the 8th floor and one of the things that struck me most was how QUIET it was! Usually, you have street noise, doors slamming, etc., but at night, the our room was extremely quiet, which is great if you're a light sleeper (like me!).
Greg, the doorman, was so friendly and helpful, as was everyone at the desk. The hotel is very clean and the location is ideal for sightseeing, just a short subway or cab ride away from the Mall and all the attractions. (Just a tip: cab was same price as subway for 4 of us and drops you off right at your destination.) The neighborhood is VERY cute and there are restaurants very nearby. Watergate is just across the way.
One note: Parking is expensive, as it is everywhere, but based on another TripAdvisor review, we used SpotHero and paid $75 for parking our car just a few short blocks away in a garage in a very nice area. We didn't really need the car, as we walked, took cabs or subway all week.
Overall, I can't say enough about how much I would recommend this hotel based on its location, lack of noise and friendly staff. We'd definitely return the next time we come to DC.
