“Extremely nice -- and busy!”
Reviewed 29 April 2010

Unable to get a room at the rate we had allotted in DC, we decided on staying in Arlington and found this quite new Residence Inn. The immediate plus is that the hotel is on the same plaza as the Court House metro stop on the Orange line, making it easy to fly into National Airport and take the train. Also in that plaza are quite a few restaurants and shops, and even more are within a short walk. No need for a car for anything. Also, if you're actually in need of the place for what it is (a long-term stay), there is a Whole Foods very close by. Anyway, back to the hotel...

The elevators require a key swipe to go to any of the room floors, which takes some getting used to. The rooms are clean, modern, and even the studio rooms have plenty of space. I never heard any noise from other rooms nor from outside. Breakfast in the morning is a true buffet (although I thought it was odd that the exact same items were served two mornings in a row, I thought they usually rotated the hot foods.

The only real drawback with these rooms is the climate control. The air vent in the studio rooms blows directly onto the bed, and not in the direction of the thermostat. Thus, it takes massive effort to get the temperature as noted by the thermostat to budge. The first night I woke up freezing cold in the middle of the night, and the second night it felt like a blowtorch was hitting me. That's my only complaint though.

Great staff...great location...I would stay here again.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom king suite. Rooms were clean. Lots of drawer space for clothes. It was very quiet even though the hotel was full. Breakfast in the morning had a nice variety of hot & cold foods but was crowded. Pool & spa were great to relax in after a day in DC. Close to metro. Walking distance to many restaurants & shops. Great place on Wilson Blvd for gelato - across the street from Whole Foods. The only minor annoyance was the broken ice maker in the freezer. Would definately stay again.

Although the hotel was new, and fresh, it appeared to have, what can only be called "teething problems!"
Our room was absent a laundry bag, which appeared on the third day of our stay, despite a call to housekeeping within minutes of check-in.
Not all channels were available on TV until another call to housekeeping.
Ice maker in freezer was broken and was never repaired/replaced despite calls to housekeeping and talk with front desk staff member.
Breakfast area is too small to accommodate all guests!

My husband and I stayed at this hotel after reading the wonderful reviews. I am happy to say that the terrific reviews are all true!. We arrived at the hotel very early around 9am never thinking we would be able to check in. The manager personally checked us in and had a room available. He was very friendly! The king suite with full kitchen is very roomy and comfortable. The entire room was spotless (and believe me I looked around). The hotel is a few blocks away from the metro. Plenty of places around to eat including the Cheesecake Factory which we ate at our first night. The morning complimentary breakfast has plenty of hot and cold foods and the staff keeps it well stocked. Employees are all very friendly and more than happy to assist you if they can. We didn't use the pool or exercise room but both looked nice. I felt safe in the neighborhood and the underground parking garage is well lit. We will be returning to DC next spring and will definitely be staying at ths hotel !

Great Hotel in a great location to get into downtown DC and Northern VA for the attractions. The metro station is just a block away. Hotel was very clean and appears to be very new. Just blocks from lots of great food choices. We will stay here again when we visit DC again.

We stayed at this hotel after reading great reviews on this site. We were travelling to visit friends and family and see some DC sites with our 17 month old son. The hotel was great. Super convenient location to the Metro, tons of restaurants, shops and entertainment within steps from the hotel. The staff was great, rooms were very new, clean, nicely appointed. So conventient to have full kitchen with our young son. Very quient, great breakfast, workout room and location - you can't beat it. Also, we got a great price through Marriott! I can't believe there would be a better location in DC for families! We're trying to think of more reasons to go back soon!
