I stayed here for one night on business. The hotel delivered an as-expected experience--that is, it delivered on what I would want in a Residence Inn. My room was spacious and clean, with the studio suite amenities promised by the brand. The room was nothing fancy and the decor was, as expected, corporate, but there were no issues with the...

This was a perfect hotel for our 2 nights visit to DC. Fast check-in, clean and spacious rooms, fully equipped kitchen, very responsive and helpful service, free breakfast, underground parking (for a $15 p/night fee) with elevators that go straight to the guest floors (elevator can be operated only with room key, for added sense of security), 5 minute drive...

This is probably one of the best hotels I have had the pleasure of staying in, everything about this hotel has been excellent. First class service from check in, the rooms are huge, bigger than most small apartments, great free breakfast and a great dinner each weeknight. If I am ever back in town this will be my only choice... More

We stayed 3 nights at this great hotel. Location was great. Close to many restaurants and shopping and a quick walk to the Metro. Rooms were beautiful and huge! We had a double queen room and there was plenty of space for our family of 4. The kitchen was a huge plus, including a Keurig coffee maker. My son especially... More

We will always stay here from now on when visiting Washington DC. Absolutely great room - we did get a suite - as nice as the condos on the beach.

Our stay here was fantastic. We were elated to get a room upgrade, so our family of 6 had heaps of space, and luxurious space at that. Everything looked beautiful and we were looked after magnificently. The staff were always helpful, generous and obliging. The rooms were great - comfortable, spacious, well set out. In a 7 week holiday, this... More

I enjoyed my one night stay at this hotel. Very comfortable from the desk chair to the bed. The breakfast was decent with a huge variety. I can't speak about the fitness center or pool, but it looks good from the pics. I would recommend this hotel if you are in Ballston. In-room Kuerig if you don't want to get... More

Rooms had lots of room and they seemed quiet when I was there. The breakfast was really good as well. Had REAL eggs and sausage. Also had the waffle maker which is nice for a change. Only 3-4 blocks from Metro stop. Plenty of restaurants in the area. Also contraction as well, unfortunately. Nice Mall only 2 blocks away.
