“Best place to stay while visiting D.C.!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

My family and I have visited the D.C. area many times over the years, each time trying a new hotel, in both downtown D.C. and in surrounding areas. This is, hands down, our new favorite place to stay. The location is the closest I've ever stayed to a Metro station, just a short walk, maybe half a block, through a lovely plaza of new shops and restaurants. In fact, the hotel is in a fantastic location, surrounded by new dining establishments, some very highly rated. (See reviews for Ray's the Steaks and The Fire Works!) Our room was lovely, clean, and well equipped with a kitchen, dining table, work area, living area, sleeping area, dressing area and bathroom. The decor was tasteful and modern and the big screen TV an added bonus. Also, our bed was amazing. It felt like we were sleeping on a memory foam mattress. The morning breakfast buffet was a hot buffet every morning with scrambled eggs, well-seasoned potatoes, pancakes or french toast, and a breakfast meat of some kind, in addition to do-it-yourself belgian waffles with an array of toppings, and the usual yogurts, cereals, fruits, and assorted pastries. The dining room staff was helpful and friendly. In fact, everyone in the hotel went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable and pleasant as possible. The Easter Bunny even made an appearance in the dining room for Easter morning breakfast. The price was more than reasonable for the area and the services. Check-in and check-out was easy and hassle-free with friendly, knowledgeable desk clerks. Great experience all around. The only thing the slightest bit inconvenient was the parking garage. It was very small for a hotel of that size and the spaces were cramped. However, once we found a spot and got parked, we didn't have to move our car the rest of our stay. We will definitely be staying there again.

Thank you for your comments about you stay. I'm so glad to hear you had a good experience with us over Easter weekend. We are lucky to have a good relationship with the Easter Bunny and that he is able to stop in every year on Easter morning. I'm glad to hear our team made your stay comfortable and pleasant. I'm not sure if you were able to try Ray's or Fireworks, but they do seem to be favorites of our guests and local residents as well. I hope we will see you and your family again soon.

We traveled to Arlington to meet with family. We all stayed in the Residence Inn, a great decision. It is very close to the metro, restaurants and a wonderful Trader Joe's and Whole Foods (where we ate several times). You can park your car in the garage and walk everywhere. The rooms were well-appointed and very comfortable with good space for family. Breakfast was wonderful and the staff were more helpful than anywhere we have ever been. The workout room was also good. All in all an outstanding experience.

Room Tip: The suites are large and the one-bedroom is worth the extra $20.

My family and I just completed a week long stay at the Residence Inn Arlington Courthouse and will be recommending this property to all of our friends and coworkers traveling to the DC area. The property was clean, well maintained, and offered a really nice breakfast daily and evening meals several times during our stay. Staff members went out of their way to accomodate our needs and this was appreciated. The pool and jacuzzi area are very nice and Brian, one of the lifeguards, goes above and beyond to ensure guests enjoy a pleasant and relaxing swim or hot tub and that the water temperatures and chemical balances are correct. Kudos to Brian and all of the staff for providing us with an outstanding stay!

A good choice for a stay in the Washington area. Room is a good size and kitchen facility is complete. Included breakfast is ample and well served. Miss a hotel bar though for an evening drink. Good shopping close by and good restaurants are all around. Will enjoy your stay.

Thank you for your comments about yout stay. We are glad you enjoyed the suite layout and breakfast. Unfortunately, Residence Inns aren't typically designed with a hotel bar. We hope you were able to enjoy the restaurants in the area as another option and come back and see us again soon!

Nice room with excellent facilities. Breakfast was standard but never disappointing and the kitchen staff would add flexibility for vegetarian diatary needs. Only problem was with ordering a taxi ... I had a standing 8 AM order and they never showed up ... not once. The subway was an option but a distraction on a busy presentation day. Also, the hotel caters to business travelers on Monday - Wednesday evenings but not Thursday or Friday.

Room Tip: Never had a bad room ... out of a dozen stays.

We just spent three nights here and had a great time. The hotel is steps away from restaurants, metro, and in a nice neighborhood. The rooms were very clean which was a huge bonus as our son has asthma and he often gets sick in hotels where they don't change air filters. My only complaints are the heat, which seems to constantly reset itself to 68-70, leaving it too hot to sleep without opening the windows, and the ice cube maker in the freezer dropping ice throughout the night. Other than that I would highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed at this hotel for presidents weekend. Room was great. Had kitchenette, in case you wanted to bring food. We just used the fridge to store wine. Breakfast was included and was very good. It is located convenient to Metro station with easy access to DC. Staff were helpful. We ate at the Fire Works Pizza place that is attached to the hotel. Great selection of Beers of draft.

Thank you for your comments about your stay with us over President's Day weekend. I'm glad you were able to take advantage of the kitchen area in the suites. I'm glad you enjoyed breakfast as well. We are fortunate to sit in the great Courthouse neighborhood of Arlington. Fireworks is always an excellent choice for lunch or dinner! We hope you will come back and be our guests again soon!
