“Girls weekend in DC”
Reviewed 17 March 2011

This hotel was extremely clean and seemed pretty new. We had a great room on the 5th floor. Check in was easy, and parking was 14$ a day which was pretty decent for the area. On the weekends, you could get away with not using hotel parking and parking in a garage nearby that had free weekend parking. The hotel is also literally one block from the elevator to the metro station. It was a short ride, I want to say 20 mins, to the Smithsonian area downtown. Very easy to get into the heart of DC from this hotel.

The parking garage is pretty decent, and feels safe.

The complimentary breakfast was nice.

Definitely recommend this hotel whether you are staying for an extended period (the kitchens are in GREAT condition) or a quick girl's weekend like we did.

I have to agree with the reviews. I was not plannng on staying here. I wanted to stay at the Residence Inn Pentagon City but they were full. So I had a look at this hotel's reviews and decided it was worth the chance. My experience at this hotel is similar to many reviewers. My room was huge. Location is just a block from a Metro station, and shops and restaurants are nearby. A CVS is open 24 hours.The room has a safe big enough to store your computer. Breakfast was free and good-quality food. Internet was free and reliable.

I certainly would stay here again.

This is a great new hotel. It is very clean and contemporary. There is a secure parking garage below and several restaurants, shopping, etc. within walking distance. Nice neighborhood with many things to do.

Worst things were the horrible feather free pillows (Im allergic to feathers), the lobby smelled a bit of chlorine (assumed the pool was nearby ), we were told the comp breakfast started earlier than it actually did, and a lil noise from the neighbors but hey it was New years Eve and it didnt last long into the wee hours. Sooooo not bad:) The room looked cool and inviting, nothing seemed out of place, if you are staying for a long period there seemed to be adequate supplies. Customer service seemed attentive, cordial and professional and not mad to be working. You have to have a key to access the elevators up to the rooms which is sometimes a great thing. Early New years morning I requested a late checkout and was called right back with a confirmation and brief instructions for checking out. The restaurant attached I think named Fireworks was good too for casual dining and takeout. Would definetly go back. Beats some of the Marriott brands in Crystal City. The price wasnt bad either for the holiday...under $135!

Stayed at the hotel for three nights while on business. Easy to reach from DCA via the Metro. When you get off at the Rosslyn Station, make sure you follow the signs to COURTHOUSE or you will wind up looking around for the hotel.
Staff was very friendly and helpful. Gave me suggestions for nearby restaurants. Even asked if they wanted me to push the elevator button when my hands were full. What staff ever does that?
The room was clean and big. I had a studio, which was big. A nice kitchen area that was fully equipped with all the amentities of a kitchen. Nice sitting area and work area. Big, comfortable, king bed with big closet, safety box, extra blankets and pillows and plenty of nice hangers. Sink/vanity outside of bathroom with lots of shelf space. Bathroom was decent size with shelf units as well.
Hotel has pool and whirlpool-neither of which I used. They also had a great workout room that I made good use of. Large lobby with comfortable sofas and chairs. Two computer stations gave you complimentary usage.
Breakfast was served each day in a separate part of the lobby with lots of seating and tables. Only ate there once, but choice was large with both warm and cold items. Lots of staff to keep everything replenished and looking good.
Hotel also had a small food kiosk and will go grocery shopping for you if you want and will only charge you for the items bought.
The only drawback would be the location. Nearby are some restaurants (Fireworks is the best of the ones I tried) and a deli open long hours for essentials. But most of the area is barren at night or weekends. And for tourist attractions, you will need transportation.
I would highly recommend this hotel for its rooms, amentities and staff.

Reviewed 21 November 2010

The Marriott Residence Inn Arlington Courthouse was a beautiful apartment hotel. However, I would have enjoyed the room far more if we had been able to get it below 74 degrees F (23degC) - far too warm for sleeping. The thermostat was supposedly set to 65, but unless someone was in the room and moving around, it did not cool at all. So during the night it always heated to 74, and while we were out of the room it always heated to 74. It was hard to get any real sleep having to sleep on top of the bed with nothing covering us!

The staff were lovely and most were quick to offer information about the area, although the knowledge of local restaurants was a little lacking, as was knowledge of public transport options. They also loaned us an umbrella when the weather too an unexpected turn for heavy rain and we were unprepared!

We did not take advantage of the full kitchen in our apartment, but it was reasonably well supplied, and the hotel will do any grocery shopping you might require and deliver it to your room, free of additional charge (other than the cost of the groceries). There is also a Whole Foods within easy walking distance. However a word of warning; if you decide to turn on the icemaker in the freezer, be prepared. It is very loud when it turns out the ice into the container below, and if if does this at three am, it scares the socks off you!

The Guest Laundry was a godsend, at only $1.00 per wash and $1.00 per dry cycle, with powder or dryer sheets also $1.00 each. So few hotels we stayed at on this trip (this one was #4 of 7) had a laundry, let alone a cheap, clean, accessible one :)

Wireless (and wired, for those who need it) was free throughout the hotel, and only required login details (issued at check-in) to access. Ultra high speed and very reliable, this was the best internet access we had on our entire trip.

Seriously though, this is a lovely apartment hotel, with a very quick and easy run on the Metro Orange line into Washington DC, with a quick change to the Blue line for the Pentagon, really close to Regan International Airport (DCA) with cheap shuttles from the airport right to the hotel. I would recommend it to anyone who wanted to see the Capital without paying Washington DC hotel prices, and anyone who wanted a home away from home experience.
