My wife and I were in the DC area for just a couple days and wanted to stay on the 495 loop. This location and hotel was perfect. It was right on the exit and was close enough to walk to the metro. Not so close for everyone but the hotel has a shuttle for those who would rather not... More

I have stayed at this hotel a couple of times in the past. On this most recent trip we booked a two bedroom suite. It was actually the only hotel in the area I could find that offered two bedroom suites and I have always enjoyed this hotel. The lobby and check-in desk area had been renovated since my last...

We stayed here while traveling around the Virgina/ Washington DC area. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The staff was pleasant and very helpful. The breakfast was good, fairly basic. Just a short distance to the Metro.

We stayed for one night on the weekend at a very reasonable price. This place is aging gracefully, but no surprises. The staff was nice and upbeat. The breakfast was as expected and the service person was pleasant. It is an easy drive to shopping and dining-- 2 minutes.

I have stayed many at many Residence Inn hotels and they're ok for the price. I was planning to stay here for 6 nights but check out quickly. The mattress was worn and sunk in. It took a long time to fall sleep even after all day on airplane and next morning my back was hurt. I asked the front... More

We stay at Marriott properties all the time and were disappointed with this one. We did find an online room rate special and are wondering if when you are lucky to get a "special deal" they give you a room that is not the greatest. We did complain and found that even though the sign in the lobby says the... More

We recently had a large group of out of town guests visiting Northern Virginia for a retirement celebration. Some chose to stay at the Residence Inn in Merrifield VA. Great choice. Our guests stayed in a spacious, clean, two bedroom suite with two baths. Some of the furnishings are a little dated but still in good shape. Staff is friendly... More

I stayed at the Residence Inn for about a week while transitioning to my new home. Although it was a chaotic time, living out of suitcases, the Residence Inn was a comfortable, clean place to call home for a period of time. The 2-bedroom suite was spacious with easily enough room for my family. The hotel has a pool, but... More
