“Great location, friendly staff, wonderful stay!”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

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.

Room Tip: We stayed on 8th floor and it was very quiet.

Great hotel and Ideal for an extended stay: clean, modern, nice furnishings and amenities, and excellent location in Foggy Bottom. I stayed here on business accompanied my wife and infant son, who were extremely comfortable. The kitchen is great, and close proximity to both Whole Foods and Trader Joe's makes it ideal to prepare meals. Highly recommend.

Hi Alex T,
Yes, our property is designed for extended stay guests; although we are happy to welcome all guests. It is a wonderful thing that you can enjoy a home cooked meal here with our full kitchen and close proximity to grocery stores. We are so happy your family felt at home, away from home. Please consider us again on your next stay in the area; whether for one night or 100.
All the best and thanks for your comments.

We really enjoyed our stay. The location of the Residence Inn was perfect for our purpose of travel. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. It really had that "Welcome Home" feeling. The Residence Inn offered evening gatherings from Monday thru Thursday and it was a great time to enjoy good food with other guests. The location of the Residence Inn to local restaurants and shopping was also a plus. It was also an easy walk to Georgetown and the Washington Harbor area. Easy access to the Metro and easy walk to the Lincoln Memorial. All hotels in DC that we have stayed in charge a high parking fee with an added tax so be prepared. It would be nice if it was a complimentary service.

Room Tip: We had an end room and that was perfect. I would think that the rooms near the elevator may be a pr...

Great location in DC. Walk to nice restaurants. Room was very clean and mattresses were very comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast was also good. Only negative was the cost of car valet service.

Hello Minivanmom11,
Thank you for sharing your thoughts about our property. Our location does offer easy access to great dining and sightseeing. Yes, parking in the area can present some challenges, but we are lucky to be able to offer the service to our guests; albeit at comparable rates for the area. Still, we are glad your stay was a great one. We hope to see you again on a return visit.

I'm staying here 10 nights on business. The location can't be beat - less than two blocks from the metro and also very close to Whole Foods and several good restaurants such as BTS and Founding Farmers. Internet speed is good, the room is clean, and the hot food at breakfast is varied daily. Mostly what I've noticed here is that the staff is unusually friendly and helpful. I'll choose this again when I need to stay in the area.

My teenage children, husband and I stayed at this Marriott property to tour the sights of Washington, DC. It is extremely easy to get to, via the Metro, from the Ronald Reagan airport. As a matter of fact, it was only about a block away from the Foggy Bottom Metro station. We arrived there at 9:30am, were welcomed by the hotel employees who offered to store our luggage, as check in was not until 4pm. This allowed us to go out and about to sight see. The hotel was extremely clean, quiet, welcoming and offered free breakfast to all its guests. As a matter of fact, the day we arrived, the front desk clerk offered us breakfast even though we had not checked in yet! Having breakfast at the hotel daily saved us a tremendous amount of time and money. The Marriott offers many selections for breakfast including waffles, scrambled eggs, sausage, hash browns, fruit, yogurt parfaits, cereal, coffee, tea, milk and juices to name a few. There is something for everybody! The best part of the hotel is the amazing staff! All are so friendly, polite and graciously accommodating! I can't say enough about them! Thank you to all the employees that made our stay in DC so wonderful!

I gave this a "Very Good" because they seem to be new and are still working out some kinks, however, the staff is extremely helpful and if there is a problem they "own" it until it's resolved. Ebony in particular is very helpful and professional. I have already booked additional stays throughout the summer.

Room Tip: I prefer high rooms.
