5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2012 via mobile

Perfect hotel for visiting DC. 10 minute walk to grocery store and easy 10-15 minute walk to metro station. Really beautiful and modern hotel. Loved having the full kitchen which was fully stocked with pots, pans, cups, plates, silverware etc. Great fresh breakfast with a change every day. The bed was extremely comfy and the flat screen tv was a nice bonus. Spotless room, didnt hear any planes. I would definitely return again!

This hotel is fantastic! It's only a little over a year old, so it's clean,quiet, fresh, and modern. The staff, from the front desk to those who serve meals, are friendly and helpful. The studios are spacious and offer a great kitchen, comfy bed and awesome toiletries (Paul Mitchell!). They are also very clean. OMG the breakfast and Manager's events! I cannot believe the breakfast this hotel serves. What a variety every morning! There are three manager socials during the week and they are meals, not appetizers. Yummy too! The gym is awesome since it is shared with the Renaissance next door. The hotel is in walking distance to all in Crystal City, the metro, and anything else. They also have a metro and airport shuttle. I suggest not getting a room on the high floors. You'll spend all day and night stopping at each floor to let everyone else on/off. It's annoying.

Room Tip: You'll stop at every floor if you get a room on one of the higher floors.

Ok to start we got our room for $99 a night with taxes included (on Expedia). There was a king bed and a pull out couch. Brand new hotel I think built in the Fall of 2011. There was a full refridgerator, a microwave, a toaster, coffee maker, and a stove top. They also supplied you with cooking stuff and plates/cup/utensils. Wow.

On top of that we got a full, hot, breakfast. It was good too. Pancakes, eggs, sausage, fruit, yogurt, oatmeal, waffles. Everything. So yummy. And on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday they serve a free dinner!!!

This place was clean and totally new. We loved it so much. Paul Mitchell was their hotel shampoo and conditioner brand.

They had a shuttle to the metro (about a 15 min walk) and the airport! Will be staying here again.

My husband and I just returned from a 3 night stay at the Residence Inn Capital View. We stayed in a studio suite on the 14th floor which included a full kitchen, sitting area and had a great view of the Potomac River and Reagan Airport. The room was spacious and clean. The breakfast buffet was surprisingly good. The gym area is really nice and is shared with the attached Renaissance hotel. The hotel was located just minutes from a Regal Cinemas, shopping and a grocery store. The only small complaint that I have is the lack of restaurants in the area and the cost of self-parking which is $22 per day. Street parking is available if you’re willing to circle the block a few times to find a space. Overall, we had a great experience and will definitely return to this property.

Room Tip: Ask a room on a high floor with view of the Potomac

I travel a lot for work and my favorite hotels are residence inn. This one in particular is fantastic. I've only stayed at a nicer residence inn, and that's because it was a year old. This hotel is clean, spacious, quiet and has an outstanding gym!!!! Location is pretty decent, the only draw back is the lack of restaurants nearby, though there are some nice places to eat within half a mile or so. The metro requires a one mile walk or taking the free hotel shuttle. This is my favorite residence inn in the DC area thus far and will definitely stay again!

I just wanted to say that I loved my stay at the Arlington Capital View. From when I came in the services were awesome. The breakfast buffet was very good each morning. The room was so nice and my family in DC for the weekend thought the staff was excellent. We will most definitely stay at this hotel the next time we are in DC. Even my kids came to the front desk and said they did a good job

I travelled as a mother of three and the hotel workers saved our vacation! The maid was super friendly and helpful when looking for hole in the wall places. In fact, the front desk even brought up options on how to get there and price estimates for taxi services. The food was awesome and loved the variety. It was nice coming back to hotel after long day of touring D.C. and walking in the hotel door with food and wine ready before dipping in hotel pool with kids. The amount of attendance on service is well worth the money
