Thanks to Susana, (Assistant GM), Kyong, (Front Desk), Mike (Houseman and jack of all trades), and George (Property Coordinator) for providing excellent service. I was on a two week business trip working long hours (5/7-5/23). On Monday -Wednesday, they featured a social hour with either a meal or snacks and two beers or wine. This was very much appreciated as... More

Stayed here with a large group for a wedding. The front desk was extremely friendly! We used their shuttle to get a ride to the nearest Metro entrance. The breakfast was plentiful and varied each of the 4 mornings we were there with real plates and silverware! There was a pleasant woman working to keep the tables bussed and clean... More

We recently stayed here to attend my Grandson's Graduation from George Mason University. We stayed in a two bedroom Suite and found it to be spacious, clean, well equipped and convenient to area attractions. The Suite had a well stocked kitchen, pleasant sitting room, and two en suite Bedrooms of adequate size, maybe a bit on the smallish side but... More

Sure, it needs updating (and I believe one is scheduled for later 2015). But it's a very decent place. It is clean, has good sized rooms with a comfortable bed, and unlike many hotels, the bathrooms aren't the size of a phone booth! My room was very quiet despite being near the very nice pool. The staff was exceptionally kind... More

I don't really have anything bad to say about this place, but nothing that really would make me want to come back either. It was clean enough and the people were nice, but for the price I would have expected it to be more up to date and just overall a little better. They have an "ok" breakfast - nothing... More

I am writing this review because I love this hotel, and I received the best service from someone. First of all I loved the room. It was spacious, and had a full kitchen and large refrigerator/freezer. There was a microwave, stovetop, even a dishwasher and a full set of dishes! I am a cancer patient who travels with a refrigerated... More

We stayed here on a weekend evening. The hotel was fine, but I wasn't very impressed compared to other Residence Inns I have visited. Next time I am in the area, I will choose another hotel if available. This one was booked on points, so I didn't mind that much! The Pros: Nice, convenient location near many restaurants and close...

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
