“Convenient to visit DC”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2009

This new hotel is up to Marriott’s standards. Rooms were clean and spacious with flat screen monitors. Bed was comfortable. Front desk and service still seemed to be learning but was pleasant and helpful. Hotel is in a more urban environment than expected. The downside is that there is only a small area to park and check-in, and "city type" driving in the area. The upside is that there are many restaurants within a mile or so. Also, location is near the metro station which is very convenient for those visiting DC.

I stayed at this hotel after being walked by a local Hilton and it was the best thing that happened to me! The hotel is new, so everything looks great, the metro is just outside and the staff was incredible. I will stay here for any future travel I make to Arlington!

I wasn't able to get a room at the Residence Inn in Crystal City so they suggested I try this new Residence Inn. I asked how close it was to the metro and she put me on hold and checked, steps away was the response. The hotel is brand new and great. The parking is 12 per day come and go as much as you want without the exspense of valet services. The metro is just out the back door and worked out perfect for traveling to the Pentagon. There are tons of places to eat, drink, and shop, to include a whole food within a few blocks. I will stay here everytime I have business at the Pentagon.

I stayed in this brand new Residence Inn for two nights, on its second and third night of being open. I had watched the construction progression over the last two years because I lived nearby. Since I was moving, I needed a place to stay and decided to try this hotel. The hotel is located extremely near the Courthouse stop on the Orange line (metro), and is only about five metro stops away from the Smithsonian area of Washington, DC. The price I received was decent ($189), and should be cheaper than the rates you can get in DC itself. Plus, there is easy access to the Reagan airport (DCA) via metro. You will not need a car to stay at this hotel! The Clarendon area (with several great restaurants) is one metro stop away, or just a few blocks walking (in a very safe area). The hotel itself is new, so there isn't much to say. There are only two elevators, and while I had no problems, it seems like when the hotel gets a little busier this could be an issue (Residence Inn seems infamous for its lack of elevators). The breakfast was decent (and free), but nothing to write home about. The hallways are extra wide (something I noticed immediately), and the rooms are clean and large (by typical hotel standards). There was free wireless access in the room, and the lobby had at least two computers to use (that I saw). The full kitchen would allow you to cook anything you want.

One minor complaint; while I appreciate that hotels don't waste paper by giving everyone a newspaper (even if they don't want it), I think they should ask at check-in if you would like a newspaper and provide it at your door. Also, the fitness center had some free weights and a few cardio machines, but nothing else.

If needed, I would certainly stay in this hotel again because of its price, easy access to the metro, quick entry to the DC tourist areas, easy metro access to Reagan airport, and the newness of the hotel.
