“Average stay, unfriendly staff, small gym”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here one night for business: unfriendly (abrasive front desk) staff, and a general appearance that needs a little TLC. The furniture is generally scratched, shower curtains too short (water leaks on to floor), hair dryer missing. Breakfast decent though for the price ($239/night) not great. Gym: small and crowded (2 ellipticals, 2 treadmills, small weights, 1 bike).

Stayed May 2013, traveled on business

Excellent room, great location (heart of Arlington) and immediately next door to a gem of a bar / restaurant, Fireworks.

Super close to metro stop made it easy to get around DC (had family there for a Nationals game).

Pros:
-- fairly new hotel
-- housekeeping
-- nice kitchenette in each room
-- location near the metro

Cons:
-- i passed by the weekend front desk person at least half a dozen times and she was on her cell phone every time. I stopped once to ask her a question and wouldn't have gotten her attention if I was on fire. They should provide you with her cell # so you can text her your question.
-- free breakfast is very so so
-- lots of dogs, so if you are allergic, be aware
-- no restaurant in the hotel to provide lunch or dinner. There is a restaurant next door but it is not affiliated with the hotel.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

We stayed at the Court House location of the Residence Inn, we are a family of four and stayed in a 2 bedroom suite, it was fantastic. The location is perfect for visiting the DC sights. Very close to the subway for trips to the zoo or the museums. The location allows you to stay at night away from the crowds yet still close. There is a great pizza place downstairs, walking distance to Cheesecake factory and more. The hotel is will maintained, we used the pool every night, although it is not open during the day which is too bad. The staff is very helpful but does not have insight into information regarding DC sights. We tried using the Old Town Trolley, not recommended because it only runs every 30 mins and sometimes the car is full and you can't get on, not great when you have hot and tired children with you. We will definitely stay again at this hotel on our next visit! Breakfast is included with your stay adding to the convenience.

Room Tip: Two bedroom suites have separate bedrooms with their own bathrooms, nice kitchen plus small living...

This is a great hotel. The staff is amazing, friendly and helpful. The rooms are very nice, clean, includes a full kitchen (cookware, utensils, and plates). Free breakfast buffet in the morning which is very nice (waffle, cereal, yogurt, fruit, eggs, home fries, sausage, oatmeal). When our bathroom sink was clogged the problem was immediately fixed. Short walk from the courthouse metro (about a block from the elevator for the metro, and about 2 blocks from the actual entrance).
I will definitely stay here again when I visit the DC

Thoroughly professional staff, clean rooms and common areas. Short walk to the Courthouse Metro station (blue and orange lines) and right next door to an friendly upscale pizza restaurant (plenty of other items available) where I ate twice in one day.

Service was excellent. The staff went out of their way to get me into a room early, and they cheerfully stored my luggage after checkout.

I'd stay here again, especially if I needed kitchen facilities and extra space. I received a discount for paying in advance. I was also taking advantage of a Marriott offer of a free night for two separate stays. This made the nightly rate a little easier to take.

This Residence Inn is new and the rooms are large and tastefully decorated. It is close to the Courthouse Metro station which makes it convenient to DC. The Fireworks restaurant is great for pizza or a sandwich. Other restaurants are only a few blocks away. The front desk staff is just too casual and not very friendly or responsive. You feel as though you are bothering them by checking in, checking out or asking a question.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are good. We have stayed there several times and all were good. The hotel is in a...
