best Residence Inn I have found in DC area. The difference? This property is "owned" & operated by Marriott. When Marriott switched to a franchise business model the experience started declining…. not matching promise of the brand. It makes all the difference…. franchise owned Marriott properties can be hit and miss. So suggest when making a reservation- ask if it... More

Had a good stay at this Residence Inn, with location very convenient to work and restaurants. Several choices of fast food are within walking distance, with many choices a short drive away. Note that my GPS (and apparently others) had a very difficult time finding this hotel. I'd suggest maybe programming in the Crab Shack which is near by and... More

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
