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

Booked a Residence Inn in the DC area for our layover from Florida to NY trip. Entered POI on my GPS for a RI in Fairfax. Of course I did not know there were 2. Arrived at 12 midnight to wrong location and person at the desk offered to call other location to cancel so we did not have to... 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

Stayed here for four nights during a trip to see the Smithsonian museums. Check in was very fast. Room was a bit dated, but clean. Breakfast was excellent and also had the supper on Monday night, a nice added feature. Pool was closed until May 2015. Aside from the property being a bit dated, was very pleased with the staff...

We stayed here for the weekend. Convenient to several local restaurants "Sweetwater Tavern" in the shopping center a couple of blocks away is very good. Room was clean and comfortable. Nice having the refrigerator and microwave, tall stools at the counter. Not all the tv stations worked that were on the 'list' but not that important to us. Would rather... More

Situated just outside the Beltway, close to Rt 50, and off Gallows Rd, this Residence Inn provided all the conveniences we wanted to have while visiting Washington DC and Northern Virginia. It is only 0.7 miles away from the Dunn Loring Metro Station, about 3 miles away from Tyson's Corner, and within walking distance from new developments that are taking... More

I stayed at this hotel on business for a few nights, and it was an average stay. I was impressed with the size of the room - it was very spacious. It was also very clean. However, the breakfast in the morning was poor-tasting. There was a lot of variety, but the eggs tasted like they had grits mixed in... More
