“Excellent choice, great location!”
Reviewed 20 March 2014

I really cannot say enough good things about the Residence Inn Courthouse in Arlington, VA.
Hotel is in a great location, short walk away from the Courthouse stop on the Metro Orange Line, easy trip into DC. Lots of bars, restaurants, and a movie theater within steps of this hotel. Rooms at this property are spacious and immaculate! I stayed in a studio suite that featured a complete kitchen and full living room. Furnishings are stylish and updated. Beds were very comfortable! Bathroom is modern and features a very roomy vanity that is adjacent to the shower and commode. Staff was very welcoming, friendly, and professional. Oscar at the front desk goes above and beyond in making sure that any need or request is promptly taken care of. Some guests nay not like the fact that you need your room key to access your floor on the elevator, I think this is a great security feature and am glad they do it. You cannot go wrong staying at the Residence Inn Courthouse in Arlington, VA. I look forward to staying at this property again and am making plans to do so.

Room Tip: rooms on the back of the hotel overlook Courhouse Plaza

Just returned from a two week trip from London. Loved this hotel the kitchen is fully equipped with massive fridge and the beds are very very comfortable, free safe in room and air conditioning. Room is spacious and we overlooked the courtyard which was very quiet. Hotel reception area is like being in someone's lounge felt like home from home. We felt very relaxed at this hotel and would come back if we ever came back to DC. Breakfast is fine lots to choose from both hot and cold. They do free dinners Mon, Tues, Wed, which were OK some days better than others all buffet style. Food is replenished reguarly. There are loads of shops and restaurants around the hotel and the metro (orange line) is literally a 2 minute walk away which was really handy as metro is the way to move around DC (much easier than NY, similar to the Tube in London), takes only 15-20 mins to DC and you can buy Metro cards which work out cheaper (similar to Oyster cards in London but much cheaper fares than London). Staff and General Manager are very friendly and helpful and always greet you and ask how your day was, they also helped us with places to go around Courthouse and DC. There is a small pool and exercise room which are all fine room are cleaned very well daily. Free Wi-fi is very speedy all around the hotel and there are 2 computers in the reception area that you can use to print things off. Courthouse area feels very safe and is a very up and coming area (even has it own Apple shop and Cheescake Factory Restaurant!) Would recommend this hotel we had a fantastic stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking Courtyard as quieter than overlooking the road and we were on floor 8.

The hotel is in a great location for finding food and drink establishments and is very near the Courthouse Metro stop. Additionally, it is within walking distance to Whole Foods. It is more of a business hotel as opposed to a family vacation spot. As far as amenities and service go, a Residence Inn is a Residence Inn, so location becomes its selling point.

Residence Inn has suites available that are spacious and comfortable - with a fully equipped kitchen, separate bedroom, and bath adjoining bedroom. The rates include breakfast, plus an adequate buffet dinner on three week-days. In addition, a pool and exercise room are available.

However, what sets this property apart is the really nice -and very helpful- staff. The front desk helped with a quietly located room, information on room-service dining, directions to locations in Arlington, and calls for taxis throughout the stay.

If doing business in the Arlington-area, this is a comfortable place to stay - and a good value. Nice mix of clientele too, business travelers as well as families - and everyone feels welcome.

I recently stayed at the Residence Inn at Arlginton Courthouse for three weeks on a business trip. I absolutely loved the experience. The staff was so gracious each and every time I misplaced my key. The rooom was in great condition and the cleaning staff did a fantastic job each and every day. The hotel is located just steps from the metro, so from there you can get anywhere in town and it is in a really nice part of Alrington.

The food that they serve, if you can call it that, is horrendous. Truely dreadful. But that is a common theme at almost every Residence Inn I have stayed at. Would it kill anyone to put a little money into the food? I can't cook and I would need to really try to make dinner that bad. If cancer had a taste it would resemble what they are pawning off as food to their guests. So don't book this place thinking you are going to really enjoy the free dinner, because trust me, you aren't.

However, if you are looking for a good value, in a nice part of town, close to all kinds of excellent places to eat, then I recommend Residence Inn Arlington Courthouse.

Once a year I am in DC for about five or six nights. This RI is my favorite place because of its location to the metro (about 200 yards from the Metro Courthouse station elevator or 400 years to the main station entrance).

The last time I was here I wasn't as impressed with the food service. You get a free breakfast and from Monday thru Wednesday a free supper. The last time I was here, it was OK, but not great.

I can report that I was there this past week (12-17 Jan) and the food service was fantastic. Each breakfast was excellent and the supper was excellent too. You can really stretch your dollars staying at a RI and when the food is a good as this place, you really come away with the feeling you got exception value.

The hotel rooms are top notch too. Great bedding and very comfortable.

My one complaint is that the flat screen TVs are a little small. They look to be 32 inch models and with only one in the room to share between the living room section and the bedroom I think having a larger tv would have been more effective.

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms!

I've stayed here before and as always, this place was great. It's a great location, right by the metro and walking distance to bars, stores and restaurants - and a new movie theatre. It has very friendly service, and includes breakfast. It's very convenient to have a kitchen and sitting area in the rooms, comfy beds, and free wifi (which still seems rare and I don't understand why).The gym is open 24/7. Overall, another great experience.
