I live in NJ and work in DC so I commute each week. The location is good and the staff is terrific. The entire staff is friendly and welcoming, however, Jasmyn always calls me name as I come and go each day - a nice touch. Last week was cold and rainy, I needed a cab and James, who was... More

Since it was Xmas holiday time the decorations stood out firsthand to me & were really, really classy. I really enjoyed the extras, i.e., the delicious hot apple cider in the lobby for guests to drink, and the lobby area had a cozy feel to it.

The bathroom is tiny with no electrical oulet, which makes drying one's hair difficult. I took two 7th graders on a research trip with some site-seeing involved. We only stayed one night. We needed to visit George Washington University and it was very convenient for that. The Foggy Bottom metro stop was very close and made getting to other DC... More

I stayed at the Residence Inn for just one night on business with the GSA. This place is very convenient (5 mins to the Foggy Bottom Metro and a 15 minute walk to the GSA). I've stayed at Residence Inn's I many times over the years. What stood out for me with this property is the helpful and courteous staff... More

I recently stayed at this hotel while visiting and sightseeing in DC. I loved the location, very walkable, and we felt very safe, even at night. the room was nice, clean and good size. The breakfast buffet was good too. My only wish is that they had some type of lounge or bar for the evenings.

What a wonderful time we had! The hotel is lovely, and is such a treasure tucked away in Foggy Bottom. We are local, and our daughter is at GW, but what a treat to stay in town. From the moment I walked in, the staff was friendly, efficient and made checking in a breeze. We can't wait to come back... More

This was a business trip that required a stay over 10 days. Located with 2 blocks of Foggy Bottom Metro Station, it is an average hotel. To me, average is good, not great. Lobby was clean and modern. Breakfast was OK. Rooms were nice, bathrooms a bit small, low ceilings with popcorn texture gave it a dated look. Bed was... More

The staff (especially Jason and Kay) was professional, courteous, knowledgeable, and efficient. The breakfast buffet was delicious - with a wide variety of both hot and cold foods from which to choose. The suite itself was exactly what we needed. The kitchen saved us a fortune in what we would have spent on lunches, dinners, snacks, etc. The suite was... More

The staff was exception during my short stay for a local Marathon race. Due to the race the next morning I had some unique needs for a much earlier than normal breakfast and a much later checkout than normal for the long race.

The staff was very friendly, the rooms were clean, the breakfast was good (which really means a lot to me). The rooms were quiet. The only complaint I have is that the bathroom was tiny and cramped - but that can't be helped really.
