My parents came to visit and had a very pleasant stay at this location. They had a two bedroom suite with a view of the Washington Monument, Capitol building and on a clear night, National Harbor. I live across the street and was pleasantly surprised by the friendly staff, clean facility and a generous breakfast even on the weekend. This... More

I have stayed at this location a few times now. In the past. Everything wax exemplary from check in till check out. On this visit, our service at check in was disappointing. The girl at the desk seemed distracted and not at all welcoming. The following day, it was difficult getting someone's attention at the desk. Having said that, everything... More

This is a newly renovated property in a nice area of Ballston. Metro station Ballston is in a walking distance and price includes breakfast which was plentiful and had a lot of varieties. Staff was nice and service was very good.

I booked this hotel because I love Marriott and the 2 bedroom suites they offer were exactly what I needed to accommodate my family. Alex at the front desk was the epitome of efficiency. After a long ride, we were able to check into our rooms early and be settled-in in no time. The suites were even nicer than in... More

We recently got married in January and needed a block of rooms for our out of town guests. These guests were coming from New England, the Midwest and internationally. Kim (the Sales Manager) was incredibly easy and flexible to work with during the whole process. We ended up with a block of 24 rooms there and all our guest enjoyed... More

This is a very nice, clean, modern Residence Inn. The only reason 4 stars instead of 5 is the location since most people staying here are there to visit D.C. and it is a little farther away than comparable hotels also outside the city. The room was a one BR suite which was very clean with nice amenities. There really... More

We stayed for 3 days at this Residence Inn while we visited Washington in December. We rented a 1-bedroom suite. The rooms were super clean, beds were made very well and the kitchen was excellent down to the smallest detail like dish-washing soap and sponge. I would give it 5 stars, except for two small annoyances: the hotel room card... More

Thank you for taking the time to let us know of your recent stay with us. I understand the desire not to pay for parking, which is why we have priced our parking at the lowest rate in Arlington. As parking is extremely limited in an urban environment, we offer secure, underground parking to provide you with an easy parking... More

I have stayed at this location nearly a dozen times over the past 2 years. The staff always has done a good job and I'd stay here again without hesitation. However, I'm now extra motivated because a detracting factor has begun to vanish, construction of two highrise buildings in the immediate vicinity. Blame for this problem most definitely does not...
