This Residence Inn is particularly in a great location. It’s right next to a huge shopping mall, which makes your stay extra convenient. The staff is friendly and the rooms are clean. If you are looking for a large pool, you won’t find it here. Also, the hotel sits on a sloped hill in which a major freeway runs behind.... More

We stayed there for two nights right after the new year. The first thing that hit us when we walked into the room was that the room at some point had been a smoking room. When we questioned them they assured us it was not. There was not a door in the room including the bathroom, bedroom, and main door... More

Have stayed here before and will stay here again. Have family in the area so we visit as often as we can. Everything is as you would expect at these properties. My wife especially appreciates the well lite bathroom area. She can do her make-up without the need of a makeup mirror, which may sound minor, but important to her... More

This complex consists of several detached buildings. The building that housed our hotel room absolutely reeked and the room itself was way over sanitized to mask the nasty smell. Had we not checked-in late and exhausted, we would've demanded another room. Also, we were charged a hefty charge for 1 dog…this was neither explained during the reservation or check-in process....

Stayed here with family for 5 days. Chose here due to close location to george mason university. You really need a car if you plan to do any sightseeing in Washington DC if only to drive to the park and ride at the nearest metro stop (Vienna). There are plenty of restaurants and shops within walking distance . The manager's... More

I thought it was great! Home away from home. Since I was there for a week the kitchen saved money eating out and had essentials for cooking. I even saw a guest cook out on their gas grill furnished on the patio. It was clean, quiet, and modern. There was a good breakfast bar and evening receptions. The area was... More

We stayed here over a weekend while our home was having some work done. We took our 2 cats with us instead of boarding them. There is a pet fee of $150 per stay. We felt it was a fair price to ensure that the room is thoroughly cleaned after a pet has stayed there, both for the sake of... More

We stayed here while a group of us were at a weekend conference. The rooms were quiet and relaxing. The front desk clerk was great. We arrived almost 4 hours before check-in and she was able to find rooms for us that were located right across the hall from each other. The morning breakfast was good. I really enjoy the... More
