The hotel is very clean, the rooms are spacious and have little kitchenettes. They were very presentable and the beds were decently comfortable too. The hotel staff is absolutely amazing! They're friendly, informative, and helpful. The location of the hotel is spot on; not too far and not too close. There's a Metro located a block of two from it,... More

Please stop calling it a Manager's Reception, you doing a disservice to all Residence Inns. It should be call a "Reception with a one drink per room complentary drink". Also, if do go cheap with the one drink, at least provide better food or at least offer it more than 3 days a week.

Our room had a full kitchen, two queen beds, and lounge area. It was on the top floor looking out onto new york avenue. The view was stunning. Hotel staff was friendly. Everything was very clean. Great places to get food near by. Walking distance to DC night life.

The rooms were tiny but well laid out. Room has a kitchen area for cooking. Hotel is located next door to a CVS and across the street from a Starbucks. Short walk to the Capital and monuments. I will definitely stay here again.
