“Good alternative to DC”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2010

We got a small suite room. It was nice having a separate bed room from the living area. Parking is under the building. The DC metro is a short walk down the street. There is also a movie theater nearby and several food choices. The hotel is clean and the front desk is friendly. Get down to breakfast early to get a seat. Staff in the breakfast area was slow to maintain the coffee pots. And the soft drink fountain is turned off in the mornings for some reason. Our room was missing a cork screw and it took the desk a while to find one for us. We try to stay in Arlington whenever we visit DC. It is less expensive and a little quieter.this hotel will fit your needs just fine

We stayed 2 nights and enjoyed our stay. We were pleasantly surprised about the free supper that was served. The breakfast was very good. It would be nice if they offered 2 beds in a room without having to select a 2 bedroom suite.
Very nice well run hotel.

We stayed for a week from 2 October to 9 October, 2010. We had a 2 room suite which was great for the six of us (2 grandparents, 2 parents and 2 kids). Our room was always very clean and we had plenty of clean fresh towels during our stay. We traveled by Metro through out our stay and used the elevator to the metro stop that was just around the corner from our hotel--very convenient. We found the beds very comfortable and the hotel very quiet after our long days of sight-seeing in D.C. We used the pool one night and it was fine, even though very small. The shopping area just down the road (Whole Foods, Pottery Barn, Crate and Barrel) was very useful while the restaurants in the area (Fireworks Pizza, Harry's Tap Room, Cheesecake Factory) provided a good variety within easy walking distance.
The complimentary breakfast was a little better than average and we took advantage of the convenience almost everyday. The Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evening offerings were just okay, however one night they had a very nice salad bar which we enjoyed. We would definitely stay in this hotel again because it was comfortable and provided a great space for our extended family to spread out a little.

We stayed a week at the Residence Inn Arlington Courthouse. 2 bedroom/2 bath suite. Family of 4, 2 adults and 2 kids age 5 & 8
What I liked:
Short walk to the Metro Station - did not rent a car. Took a taxi to the airport.
Close to Whole Foods Market
Clean - Housecleaning service was good.
Quiet
Breakfast time was very busy. As were the evenings when they served dinner. Food was OK. Due to dietary restrictions we cooked quite a bit.

What I didn't like:
Thermostat decided whether to turn the heat/air on depending on the temp you set. Hallways were very cold. Waste of electricity to keep it at that temp.
Pool area very small with limited hours. It's indoor and could use better ventilation.

Great hotel! Right across the river from the national mall. There's a metro stop and lots of good places to eat, all within walking distance. Near a Whole Foods market and room has a full kitchen so you don't have to go out all the time. Starbucks right there. Very clean, safe and new. It was nice to get away from the noise and traffic of DC.

We enjoyed our stay at the Residence Inn Arlington. It is right at a Metro stop for going into Washington DC to sightsee. It is in a very nice neighborhood with great places to eat and shop within walking distance. The rooms were very nice, the free breakfast was excellent and the staff was very nice and helpful, too. You do have to pay for parking.

Stayed here 17 nights (OMG!) in temporary living before a move. So I got to know the place a bit. Overall - newer property nicely located between courthouse and Clarendon metro stops. Tons of restaurants and things to do nearby. Parking - about fourteen dollars a night and underground, secure. Rooms - we stayed in a studio room which was pretty good size with a decent kitchen. Amenities - spacious and functioning laundry room. Small but working and functioning fitness center - a couple of treadmills bike machines and ellipticals each.
Restaurant - no restaurant per se just the usual breakfast and Monday to Wednesday "dinners". Breakfast was below average Watery eggs, no soda machine, and god forbid you want to eat at 855 when it closes at 9. They start pulling stuff off the tables fifteen minutes early.
Service - would think a platinum member around for 17 nights would garner some notierity or attention, especially toting two english bulldogs. Not so. We were treated no different than "one night Johnny". Three hundred bucks times seventeen nights - wouldn't you pay a little extra attention? Worse yet was the wonky door lock which stopped working three times! No fun waiting outside your door for fifteen minutes for someone to open your door... X3!
Like most businesses in the area it seems like there is plenty of demand and thus no need to try too hard.
Bottom line - solid in most areas save service. - not sure about the competition in the area but It aint a great value at 259 per night.
