We were very pleased with our recent 2 night stay. Hot Breakfast was actually hot, with lots of choices like scrambled eggs, waffles, hard-boiled eggs, cereal, fresh fruit bread/bagles etc. Our room was clean, and roomy for a studio suite. Some of the TV stations didn't come in well, but was quickly resolved by a call to the front desk... More

When we arrived we were immediately upgraded to a 2 bedroom suite, which was perfect for us after a long car ride. The room was huge, complete with a full kitchen. The room was very clean. This was the first time in all my years of traveling that I haven't had to wear ear plugs to be able to sleep.... More

Our stay at this Residence Inn was brief - one night over the weekend, and that night was about as much time as I'd want to spend on the premises. We arrived during the morning, and to the management's credit, they were able to get us into our two-bedroom suite earlier than the usual check-in time. We spent a few... More

I stayed at this hotel for several months while working in the area. The lobby has been renovated so it’s quite nice. The bed was comfortable, everything worked and once I was inside my room, I couldn’t hear anyone in the rooms around me which I really appreciate. The room, however, could use a renovation. The room I was in... More

Great stay at this Mariott. So many perks; outdoor pool with lifeguard, full breakfast and a Taco dinner which my grandsons loved. Clean rooms in our suite fully furnished. Near DC and Arlington, Va. Great location.

I stayed at the hotel this past weekend for my boyfriend and i's anniversary (also just to get away) . I live in the dc area so I was extremely scared of the drive and if the location would even be feasible for us. Although it was just a little over a 30min drive I would have to say my... More

We (two parents and three teen aged kids) traveled to the DC Area for one final family vacation before sending our son off to Basic Training.... Booking a two bedroom suite in this hotel made it very affordable and SUPER convenient! We spent the day at nearby Steven Udvar-Hazy Air and Space Museum before checking in. Upon arrival, we took...

The bed was very comfortable :). Free b'fast daily & evening snacks/lite dinner included on select evenings Nice to have a fridge. We had a 2 BR/2bath suite. Very clean and staff was friendly. The living room furniture probably needs replacing, but who really stays in their room a lot? Adequate. My main concern is a good nights sleep and... More
