We cannot fault our stay at Residence Inn, DC Downtown. Front desk staff were welcoming, very friendly and willing to help at all times. We highly recommend the buffet breakfast and the wonderful lady overseeing the dining room was so friendly and helpful.....she made us feel like we were eating breakfast in her own home!! Rooms were roomy and clean,... More

We went to the Kennedy Center on New Year's Eve and didn't want to drive back to family's home late at night. This was a perfect place to stay. The rooms are a nice size. The breakfast buffet is very good and the room is big enough to handle the large crowds. The noise from sirens most of the night... More

I stayed here for my wedding anniversary and birthday celebrations with my family. The hotel is in central D.C. very convenient for people who love to walk, run the bike, or take public transportation. The breakfast is amazing as well as all of the breakfast staff so dedicated to everyone! From Monday through Wednesdays they have like a small dinner... More

Fortunately we got a free upgrade. We booked a room with two queen beds and got a suite and a room with a connecting door. The room was quite, clean and everything worked. The breakfast area is definitely too small. On our first morning it was overcrowded. We stood more than 15 minutes in line. Only three guys tried to... More

This hotel was a little outdated and it showed. Wallpaper starting to come down on the walls. Bad lighting especially in the bathroom. Despite it's aging the staff was very nice and very helpful. A little noise but that's excepted in a downtown area.

I have stayed at Residences Inn's often enough to say this is the lowest spectrum. Its in walking distance to the White house and to the convention center even in November cold weather but the room is very minimal. If cost is important and you do not want to travel to Arlington to save money, its not a bad option.
