This was such a great place to stay in at a cheap rate. We stayed in this hotel for a whole week during our most recent trip to see Washington DC and we were pleasantly surprised at the quality of service we received. Nitesh a server in the buffet area was magnificent and a very industrious person. Always willing to... More

I work in this area and until this hotel opened up there really wasn't a good hotel to stay at in the area. The staff is excellent! Jonathan and the many others are very friendly and I really look forward to the visit. The only difficult part is the hotel seems to book up quickly so it is more difficult... More

Spent two nights in a suite and loved it. After sight seeing all day, it was great to get back to this hotel. The staff is warm and friendly, and the hotel is top-notch. Morning breakfast included was adequate, and the people working there were efficient and friendly. Parking on-site was $15 per day. A little more than I like... More

Stayed at the Residence Inn Ballston from Thursday to Saturday over the Memorial Day Weekend. This is a newer property that is very well appointed, and in a nice (not too busy) Ballston neighborhood. Restaurants within walking distance, with nice selection to choose from. Definitely not the selection in DC, but if you've had a long day of sightseeing, and... More

I stayed at this hotel for business during the week and then my husband and toddler joined me for the weekend. I have to say, hands down this is one of the best hotels I've stayed at and yes, I do travel a lot. The staff was super friendly which can be rare in DC. They did a great job... More

We had four rooms for a one night stay at this new Residence Inn in the Ballston area of Arlington. On the positive side, the rooms are spacious and are furnished nicely. For a Saturday night stay during Memorial Weekend, the price was right at about $130 including taxes (with no annoying extra WI-FI charges). It is a bit of... More

We will be making many trips to this area in the future since our son has recently moved down here. We've stayed at a few other places and were very unsatisfied with them.

This is my second time staying at this location and I love it. Great rooms, close to public transportation, restaurants, laundry, and they have breakfast too. I have to single out Johnathan on the management team, awesome and driven to make you feel welcome and help you with whatever you need. I will be returning.

Our stay at this hotel was for 3 nights with 5 adults and a toddler. We had a 2 bedroom suite and what I didn't realize was that the living area would be completely separate from each bedroom.
