Reviewed 18 November 2010

I stay at Residence Inns.....it is my preferred hotel brand. I have to travel to DC quite a bit and until recently, my choice location was the Residence Inn at Bethesda. I had to travel to DC and the Bethesda location didn't honor the government rate and this was the only RI that did.

The hotel looked new. Everything was in perfect working order and I arrived at 5PM and was told that there would be supper served at 6PM. Now it wasn't a ten course meal....but it was BBQ beef sandwiches, BBQ beans, and salad. Not the best I have ever had....but it was very good and free. The next night was spaghetti and meat balls and it was about the same quality. Very satisfying.

The hotel is about a block and half from the metro subway entrance. It at the Arlington Courthouse on the metro's orange line.

I don't know why I have never stayed here before, but I am making this location my number one DC hotel now.

Great location....great service.....wonderful stay!

We stayed at the Residence Inn Arlington Courthouse last week. This hotel is new and extremely nice; the excellent reviews made me choose it for our trip, and I wasn't disappointed. We were there for 5 nights and the hotel served our needs nicely.

We stayed in a king suite that had a kitchen; it was quite convenient to have the large refrigerator and dishwasher available along with the dinnerware and glasses. The suite had a comfy separate living area with a flat panel TV. The bedroom was roomy and nicely decorated; it had another flat panel TV. I noticed that the bed area was arranged in a great way - the lamps were mounted on the headboard along with a convenient on/off switch, and there were some electrical outlets located next to those lamps for handy cell phone/laptop charging during the night. The bed was extremely comfortable and had nice linens. The bathroom was spacious and very clean. The granite counter tops in the bath and kitchen were nice touches. The high-speed wireless Internet worked well, and there was a business area downstairs with computers and a printer.

The heat/air system was a bit strange - there wasn't a switch to choose which you wanted; we had to set the temp and then the system would put out heat if we wanted it warmer or air if we wanted it cooler. Parking was pricey at $14/night, but it was underground in a garage that could only be accessed by guests, so the vehicle was secure.

The breakfasts were good. I like a hot breakfast during cooler weather and this place fit the bill; they had scrambled eggs available every morning along with potatoes and sometimes bacon and ham, plus they had hot steel-cut oatmeal from a slow cooker. They also had the usual cold cereals, pastries, toast, and waffle makers. We also liked the evening dinners that they had Mon. - Wed. nights. They had Mexican one night, rice and stew beef another night, and then on the last night hot dogs and fries, in addition to desserts, breads, and other veggies. One night they had a salad bar, too.

The front desk staff was very friendly and always available if needed. The first night we were there, I had to call the front desk about the in-room safe not working correctly, and they sent up a maintenance man right away who had it fixed in just a few minutes. Another time I asked a few questions to another staff member, and he was extremely helpful.

The hotel is close to the subway system; it's about 2 blocks from the hotel to a Metro elevator right on the street. The hotel is also close to numerous shops and restaurants in addition to a movie theatre. It was a good place to stay to explore Washington DC.

Overall this was a great place to stay and I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

We got a small suite room. It was nice having a separate bed room from the living area. Parking is under the building. The DC metro is a short walk down the street. There is also a movie theater nearby and several food choices. The hotel is clean and the front desk is friendly. Get down to breakfast early to get a seat. Staff in the breakfast area was slow to maintain the coffee pots. And the soft drink fountain is turned off in the mornings for some reason. Our room was missing a cork screw and it took the desk a while to find one for us. We try to stay in Arlington whenever we visit DC. It is less expensive and a little quieter.this hotel will fit your needs just fine

We stayed 2 nights and enjoyed our stay. We were pleasantly surprised about the free supper that was served. The breakfast was very good. It would be nice if they offered 2 beds in a room without having to select a 2 bedroom suite.
Very nice well run hotel.

We stayed for a week from 2 October to 9 October, 2010. We had a 2 room suite which was great for the six of us (2 grandparents, 2 parents and 2 kids). Our room was always very clean and we had plenty of clean fresh towels during our stay. We traveled by Metro through out our stay and used the elevator to the metro stop that was just around the corner from our hotel--very convenient. We found the beds very comfortable and the hotel very quiet after our long days of sight-seeing in D.C. We used the pool one night and it was fine, even though very small. The shopping area just down the road (Whole Foods, Pottery Barn, Crate and Barrel) was very useful while the restaurants in the area (Fireworks Pizza, Harry's Tap Room, Cheesecake Factory) provided a good variety within easy walking distance.
The complimentary breakfast was a little better than average and we took advantage of the convenience almost everyday. The Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evening offerings were just okay, however one night they had a very nice salad bar which we enjoyed. We would definitely stay in this hotel again because it was comfortable and provided a great space for our extended family to spread out a little.

We stayed a week at the Residence Inn Arlington Courthouse. 2 bedroom/2 bath suite. Family of 4, 2 adults and 2 kids age 5 & 8
What I liked:
Short walk to the Metro Station - did not rent a car. Took a taxi to the airport.
Close to Whole Foods Market
Clean - Housecleaning service was good.
Quiet
Breakfast time was very busy. As were the evenings when they served dinner. Food was OK. Due to dietary restrictions we cooked quite a bit.

What I didn't like:
Thermostat decided whether to turn the heat/air on depending on the temp you set. Hallways were very cold. Waste of electricity to keep it at that temp.
Pool area very small with limited hours. It's indoor and could use better ventilation.

Great hotel! Right across the river from the national mall. There's a metro stop and lots of good places to eat, all within walking distance. Near a Whole Foods market and room has a full kitchen so you don't have to go out all the time. Starbucks right there. Very clean, safe and new. It was nice to get away from the noise and traffic of DC.
