Our family enjoyed our 2 night stay. Very clean and very friendly staff. Place still looks brand-new. They provide free wifi rather than nickel-diming you like other hotels. It's just a short walk from the Ballston Metro stop and a quick ride into DC. After a busy day of sight-seeing, the entire family was able to get a good nights... More

Stayed here two nights and had a great stay - the property is relatively new (maybe 2 years old now?) so everything is still nice and new. Great location - can't beat it! You can park on the street for 2 hours and Saturday after 5 or 6 pm it's free and free all day Sundays (why pay $20 to... More

My wife and I enjoyed our 3 night stay at this clean, very cozy Residence Inn. We had a one bedroom suite with a KS bed. It's located a 10 min. walk from the Metro line for a quick ride to DC. The neighborhood is pleasant with some eateries and a huge supermarket nearby. They have a very nice outdoor... More

We enjoyed everything about this hotel. The front desk people were always super nice and greeted people as they entered the building and were always very helpful. The room was spotless clean and quiet. The evening meal we had at the hotel one evening was excellent and plentiful. We also enjoyed the breakfast each day. The hotel is in a... More

I recently stayed here for one night over a weekend, and highly recommend this property. Check in was smooth, and as a Marriott Gold Member upgraded to a 1 bedroom apartment like room with two queen beds in the bedroom, pullout in living area and a full kitchen. My room was on the 9th floor (I believe the hotel has... More

There are several things that the hotel management can do in this hotel to make it up to the par of it's condition. It's a new, great looking hotel. Super ambiance. There are a few cons: 1. Front Desk. Yep I had to put this first because honestly they really don't even try. They have the classic 'you're cutting into... More

Thank you for letting us know of your experience and I apologize that you had a few challenges while staying with us.

I stayed here two nights largely to visit the DC sites with my kids. The hotel was immaculate, the staff was incredibly helpful, and the rooms were very large. We stayed in a one bedroom with two queens room, and we had plenty of space. The Ballston metro is a few blocks away but very walkable. There were many restaurants... More

We stopped here for a short visit, and found it to be perfect for us. The hotel is new and modern. The staff, from check in to breakfast room, and a few others in between, were all pleasant and helpful. I especially appreciated the person who took my call when we were driving, and helped guide me to Union Station,... More

We only stayed one night but were impressed with the cleanliness and condition of the room and kitchen. There was a Keurig, so you could pack your favorite K-cups. Everything was immaculate; I felt like I was the first guest to stay there. The bathroom, though small, sparkled. The tub was cast iron with tiled walls. It looked as though... More

I'm not sure how old the hotel is but it feels brand new. The staff is awesome, just extra friendly and helpful. Our family of 5 stayed in a 2 bedroom suite and it worked great.
