We stayed here back in August 15-18, 2013. Just forgot to do our review. We were close to the metro which granted us access to the Smithsonian mall without any problems. We had a great time on this trip as we go to visit the Air and Space, WW2 monument, Dulles Air Museum, and the American in Wartime Museum in... More

Situated close to DCA airport with easy public transit access to the entire city. My only suggestion for improvement was the hotel shuttle drivers that ranged from very good to not so much. I recommend for the location, excellent breakfast and friendly staff.

This was my second visit at this hotel. I love staying here for the convenience of the shuttle, cleanliness and courtesy of the staff. I had four rooms reserved and we close together which made it convenient to visit. We needed a taxi on Saturday morning and the front desk took care of the details. I highly recommend this hotel....

We took our 9 year old grandson to D.C. for three days. We got an early check-in on Monday so we could do some sightseeing that afternoon. We were upgraded to a 2 bedroom suite which was great. Staff very professional and helpful.

Amazing price for a suite with a full kitchen and great view! Last minute reservation that paid off big time! Safe, secure parking in the underground garage with extremely convenient and close access to the subway and monuments. It took us five minutes to get to the Pentagon and ten to get to all the other attractions! Would definitely stay... More

I went to this hotel approximately a year ago, and happily chose it again for a recent trip. It was the same great room and breakfast, but there were a couple of service issues that made me take off a star for my most recent visit. First, the maid was inconsistent about cleaning out the coffee pot and picking up... More

Thank you for returning as our guest to the Residence Inn Arlington Capital View. We can understand your frustration when rambunctious kids are left unsupervised in the pool. Our complimentary shuttles stop at the most convenient locations for boarding and drop-off. Our drivers must follow Metro police directions which may not always give us access to the closest bus loading... More

The rooms were large and comfortable. The air conditioning system blower was poorly placed, blowing continually on the bed. The desk staff was excellent. The breakfast was adequate the standard scrambled eggs, cereals, yogurt, fruit and various breads. On site inside parking is available for an additional fee.

We stayed for four nights in a room with a "Capital view". The hotel is very clean and nicely decorated. The front desk and housekeeping staff were very friendly and accomodating. For those who are in to fitness, the exercise facility is excellent. Only one machine was out of order during our stay. There were about 6 treadmills and three... More

Stayed at this hotel for 5 nights for a conference. Great suite with plenty of room. Very clean. Breakfast was great every morning. Lobby was nice place to relax. Staff was friendly. One of the best gyms I have ever seen at a hotel. A bit far from metro but they have a shuttle. Its about a 15 min walk.
