“Amazing hotel, amazing stay”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

Perfect location for a family trip to DC & Alexandria. We had two, one-bedroom city view suites for two nights. At check-in I was informed that our rooms would be on different floors (not good for children who need to go between rooms) but the front desk staff quickly found us two rooms, not adjoining, but next to each other. We were given maps to nearby restaurants & shopping, used the free shuttle to the Metro, enjoyed the great breakfast buffet (chocolate chip waffles for the kids!) as well as the evening reception (grilled hamburgers the first night and catered Philippine food the second, both with complimentary drinks). The gym was phenomenal (9 treadmills, 6 other cardio machines, tons of free weights & other equipment), but the pool was quite small, especially considering the fact that it is shared with the adjacent Renaissance hotel. There was a lifeguard on duty which was nice. The adjacent patio was beautiful and relaxing in the midst of the city. The beds were very comfortable and even though this hotel overlooks Reagan National Airport, it was quiet and relaxing inside the rooms. The high speed Wifi was complimentary due to being Marriott Gold Elite, but there was free, tough slower Wifi. There was no Wifi reception in the gym or pool area, which was annoying, but minor. The parking was pricey at $26/day, but it was in an underground lot with direct hotel access. This is a great property and we will for sure be back on ur next DC trip.

Thank you for choosing the Residence Inn Arlington Capital View for your stay. I'm glad you and your family enjoyed your rooms and the amenities that are offered here. I'm especially glad that you were able to relax out on the patio located next to the indoor pool. The comfy furniture and serene atmosphere overlooking the green roof is perfect for taking a break away from it all. We look forward to seeing you again the next time you're in town and thank you for taking the time to submit a review.

I stayed at this hotel in July for six nights, while on a business trip, and what a treat it was! Comfortable, well designed guest rooms that are set up like a bachelor apartment, complete with sitting area, a full kitchen, work desk, etc. Complimentary full, hot buffet breakfast each morning, complimentary evening appetizers and beverages (select week nights), complimentary WiFi and shuttle to the airport (5 minutes away). I think the Residence Inn might be my new "go to" for business travel!

I stayed here in June for a family reunion. The hotel is located in the Arlington within few blocks from the Crystal City station on the metro. It was walking distance from several restaurants and was located next door to another hotel that had a full service restaurant and bar. In addition there was free shuttle to the metro and to the airport. The Shuttle made it possible to avoid having a rental car. The staff including the drivers were very nice and where very helpful with directions etc.....We ate at the breakfast buffet every morning and there were plenty of options to eat. My son and wife used them gym and thought it was adequate. The room it self was large and very accommodating for our 4 night stay. I would definitely stay here again if in the area.

I have been in this hotel since May while in DC for work. The rooms are comfortable. The staff is amazing. I am greeted each morning by name during breakfast. The same is true each evening by the front desk staff.
I had a few stuffed animals in a bag in my room for my children. One of the housekeepers mistakenly threw them away. I notified the front desk. The agent there was very apologetic about it. She took a description of the stuffed animals. She then went to a local store and replaced them. The replacements were better than the ones that I originally had.
I am very happy that this is the hotel I am staying in for work. I truly feel as if the hotel staff care for the guests. I feel as they are friends and family.

We stayed for 2 nights and it is a fantastic hotel. The rooms were great, very clean and new. The beds were very comfortable. It was nice to have the kitchen but we were so busy we didn't use it much. The breakfast was also great but very busy, I would get there before 9am so that you can get a seat. They have a shuttle to the Metro station near by so that you can ride into DC to see the sights. The staff were extremely helpful and willing to answer any questions we had. The only negative comment I have is that the air conditioner was a little loud but it did drown out the noise from the halls.

I stayed here with my boys for 3 nights, and was very pleased with our stay. My first night there I was able to enjoy a complimentary glass of wine in the reception area while the kids enjoyed some warm Smores. Other great features for us: the free breakfast that had a great variety of items to choose from including eggs, sausage, and breakfast potatoes; free wifi that was not a pain to connect to, or stay connected; the free shuttle service to the airport, Crystal City metro station (Blue Line), and the Crystal City restaurant area; and the most amazing gym. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. I was able to get a room right next to the elevator just like I requested. It was roomy enough for the 3 of us and the couch pulled out into a bed for the boys to sleep. My four year old enjoyed the view from our window as well. He got to see the airplanes as they took off and landed, the metro train pass by, and on our last night we had the perfect view of the fireworks. There is no restaurant onsite but the hotel is connected to the Renaissance Hotel that has a trendy Italian restaurant with a bar. We got some late desert there one night.

My only minor complaint (and it is minor) was the timeliness of the shuttles. I arrived a bit later than I would've liked getting back to the airport because I was told the shuttle would come at a certain time, and it came much later. It could be just a fluke. I would definitely stay here again without hestitation.

I'm glad you and your family enjoyed your stay at the Residence Inn Arlington Capital View. What's summer without s'mores? Or wine? Or fireworks? Taking time out of a hectic schedule to relax and unwind is what a summer vacation is all about. We're hapy we could be a part of yours. Any plans for the fall?

Very nice hotel in Crystal City on the Virginia side of the DC area; very close to Reagan National airport. Stayed there for business. My room was exceptionally clean; appears to be a relatively new hotel. The maids did a great job cleaning up the entire room, including the kitchen and running the dishwasher. The stay comes with complimentary breakfast with plenty of options, both cold and hot. The evenings included a complimentary reception with a small but tasty selection and two drinks.

Room Tip: Long hallways; if you don't want a long walk from the elevator, mention this to the desk.
