We stayed here for our anniversary. The room was wonderful, the breakfast delicious and the staff was just charming! Knowing that it was our anniversary they even had a surprise bottle of wine for us in our room! How thoughtful. The breakfast was fresh, varied and plentiful allowing us to eat a hearty breakfast prior to touring the city. The... More

My mom and I stayed here for a girls-only vacation last spring. It had recently opened and was absolutely beautiful. The staff were friendly, helpful and welcoming. The room was standard for a Residence Inn, but more than adequate. The hotel was very clean and the location was fantastic. Close to shopping, eating, and all the local attractions. The restaurants... More

Night shift front desk staff are not expected to be extremely patient, kind & go out of the way to solve your problem if you have one or to check you inn in few moments with a big & welcoming smile. Ms. Grace at this hotel, did all of that to me and even more when she realized how tired... More

I stayed here overnight and could not have been more pleased. The hotel appears to be brand new with a welcoming lobby, very friendly employees (at the front desk and at the breakfast buffet) and just generally gives off a cool, hip vibe. The room was standard Residence Inn, although I was surprised at just how roomy my one-bedroom suite... More

Fairly modern, clean and quiet - a good night's rest. Staff seemed a bit more pleasant than normally found at business hotels - in a genuine way, as if they enjoyed woking there. Breakfast buffet of good quality & variety. Excellent fitness center (shared with adjacent Renaissance), much better than average and something that makes a big difference for me.... More

This place is great. Friendly employees, great service and location. Easy to the metro and city, and easier to the airport. Will certainly be back and would stay here for work or pleasure. While it was nice to have it be mostly adults, this property would be good if you were traveling with children too.

Large room, efficient kitchen. The Residence and Renaissance are side by side in this location. We were dropped off at the Renaissance by mistake by the van from the airport. The lobby is very fancy and futuristic. I wondered whether I had chosen wrong by going with the Residence, and not the Renaissance. That evening, while I was wandering, I... More

Thank you for choosing the Residence Inn Arlington Capital View Hotel for your stay. I apologize for the shuttle driver error upon your arrival at the hotel.

Service at the Residence Inn was very good, although I wish they had given me the map of the area when i arrived vs. the morning i left. My room was very spacious and had a nice view of DCA and the River. The only noise problem was the train right outside the hotel at 3am. Not jarring but loud... More

Stayed with my Two kids. Hotel is very clean and well set up. Staff are very friendly and helpful with tips. The breakfast and dinners are actually pretty good. Be sure to get there early. It is always packed. Only gripe was the charge for parking.
