“Great place - would stay there again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2010

We had a 2 bedroom suite (4 children and 2 adults) and when I checked in the manager upgraded me to the room with one very large bedroom with 2 double beds and one room with just one bed -- that was such a big help and ended up giving us so much room! Great to have a kitchen in the room. Rooms were a little outdated, but VERY clean with nice TVs and comfy beds. Great location. Breakfast was included and pretty good food and great variety (although as with all those "free" breakfasts, I find that it depends on what time you get there -- we got there 30 minutes before closing one day and there was not much food left). Very friendly staff. Shuttle bus will take you anywhere within a mile radius, which was great. Overall, a great place and the price was reasonable.

Phenomenal. I have been traveling to the Pentagon area for business for over 2 years and have stayed at virtually every hotel in the Pentagon City/Crystal City area. Ridiculously friendly staff, super clean, huge suites, the biggest breakfast buffet around and free dinner beer/wine Mon-Wed. Just can't be beat. Real across the street from the mall and the Metro.

We stayed here with a group of school-aged kids and parents. The location is very convenient to the Metro and some of the rooms had a great view of the city. The kitchen in the 2 room suite we had had an oven and a dishwasher in addition to the needed cookware. It was very well stocked for us to cook dinner in the hotel. The breakfast was quite extensive -- something for everyone -- hot and well-stocked.

We just are back from a Family Vacation to DC. We looked for the best value and also the easiest way to get in and out of DC. The nice people at this Residence Inn showed the usual concern and quality that are consistent with the Marriott name. Rooms were very nice, the food was tasty, and we felt safe. Just don't make any pictures from the windows, and ask at the front desk why you should not.

I stayed their with my wife and two kids for a weekend in September. The staff were very friendly. They drove us to the metro stop one morning and when we were done, I called them up and they picked us up at the metro stop. They said that if we wanted to go out to dinner, they could take us. Great location, and very helpful staff.

We booked this hotel through a "last minute deal" program that included the flight and room. This made no difference to the staff. We were treated like royalty from check-in to when we left. I had called in advance and told the person it was our anniversary and everyone on the front desk wished us a happy anniversary -- and did other things to make our anniversary special.

This is a large hotel and, like all in the DC area, has a diverse population of guests. I was standing behind a manager doing a new employee orientation and I heard him tell the new employees that he expected them to respect the different cultures -- and it seemed to me that they did.

Our room was on the 16th floor overlooking the Pentagon. Even though it overlooked the interstate there was little if any outside noise. The Metro station was only a short walk from the hotel -- and if you didn't feel like walking they furnished a free shuttle to and from it (and to anything else within a mile or so from the hotel). It was comfortable and very clean. The kitchen had a full refrigerator with icemaker. The staff even ran the dishwasher if needed. We forgot to take the "later' sign off the door one day so the room wasn't cleaned. The staff brought fresh towels up within 15 minutes of when we returned from sight seeing.

Breakfast was very nice. Some things are the same every day: oatmeal, waffles, bagles, and eggs. Other items changed every day (sausage, bacon, gravy, etc.). During the week they have light meals on two evenings and a desert tray on Thursday. The staff will provide "to go" containers to take upstairs upon request.

The shuttle ride to the airport is shared with two other Marriot hotels in the area and runs every 30 minutes. When a regular schedule is not needed it is available on demand. We didn't have to wait long when we arrived and, since we arrived hours before check-in time, they kept our bags securely locked up while we went into DC for sightseeing. We got back to the Metro station after midnight one evening (shuttle stops at 11:00) and we walking to the hotel rather than take a cab -- and felt safe doing so. Maybe because the walk took us by the DEA office building and its high security.

One nice thing about this hotel is the central location. The metro station is at the front of a large shopping center, and both the "blue" and "yellow" line go there. This gives access to downtown DC and to old town Arlington where the extremely nice resturants are. Because of this we didn't need a car.

I'm glad we stayed there and would love to go back.

Went to DC with 2 teenagers. We had the 2 bedroom suite- worth the extra money. We had privacy, 2 bathrooms to get ready and 3 LCD TVs. Very relaxing room after a long day in DC. The metro is easy to use and 2 blocks away - we walked to it in 5 min. The breakfast was very filling with lots of selections. The evening meal was smaller, but the teenagers were happy with spaghetti, salad, rolls, and soda. There is a Costco 2 blocks away - if you have membership you can feed a family of 4 for $15. Food can get very expensive in the DC area. Also, the hotel staff will shuttle you a grocery store to pick up water and extra food you can keep in the kitchen. The whole family agreed that this was a very nice hotel. The only negative was that the sofa bed was uncomfortable, however we asked if we could have a roll away bed and it was delivered in 15 min. It was much more comfortable.
