I live in Arlington and when I have a lot of family in town and cannot host everyone, I always send them here. The hotel is very clean and the staff has always been extremely friendly (even during busy peak times such as the Marine Corps marathon and Cherry Blossom festival). The rooms are spacious as it is a Residence Inn. You have a small kitchenette and sitting area in the standard rooms.
The location is superb! You are steps from the metro stop at Court House and there is a great restaurant Fireworks (pizza and pasta, great beer selection) in the same building (you need to exit the hotel to enter, but it is literally ten steps). Also, across the street there is a fantastic independently-owned Lebanese restaurant named Me Jana. The owner is often hosting and is so welcoming! The food is outstanding, but the Fattoush salad is a don't miss item. Both restaurants have great outdoor seating during warmer months (all high quality furniture so you have a good experience unlike other restaurant outdoor patios that seem like an after-thought).
The hotel location is great for tourists as the Smithsonian stop with access to the
National Mall is on the orange line and walking distance to Arlington Cemetery and the Iwo Jima Memorial. Plus, the neighborhood is very walkable and offers many dining options if you don't want to go into the district. Nearby neighborhood of Clarendon (an easy 5 minute,flat walk) has a lot of great dining options as well.
There is a parking garage and I know there is a fee, but I can't remember the price. It wasn't outrageous by any means, but you are in a major metro area so it's not a bargain either. Overall, the price and quality of this hotel cannot be beat in Arlington. Also, breakfast is included and there was lots of good choices (healthy ones too).
The staff was so helpful that I imagine that if you called or booked directly through them they woul...
