“Great room facilities in a hotel within easy reach of DC”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

We stayed at the Residence Inn on a recent trip down East coast USA and it was without a doubt the best value/quality hotel of the trip, the room was spacious and very well equipped, the complimentary breakfast was very good and the staff managed to cope very well with what looked like most of the hotel guests arriving within 15 minutes of each other for Sunday morning breakfast. The gym (which is shared with the adjacent hotel) was enormous and very well equipped, the pool was small but my kids were happy enough with it. All the hotel staff we spoke to were extremely friendly and helpful, we used our car for trips into DC so I can't comment on the hotel shuttle but they seemed to run fairly frequently. My only slight gripe would be the parking charges which I think are a bit high at $24 a day but we had a good deal on the rooms so I can't complain too much. Overall highly recommended on lots of levels.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for the second time and it is still a great place to relax in clean, modern, well appointed rooms. We had a King Size Studio Suite that was handicapped accessible. It was spacious, immaculately clean and well furnished. They offer a shuttle to the Crystal City Metro station. The common areas are very upscale. Included with the room is a breakfast buffet with lots of choices and the attendants are very friendly and helpful in securing you a table when it is crowded at peak times. All of the employees, from the front desk to the breakfast workers and the housekeepers speak to you and are very helpful. We got a really good weekend rate, too. Even though it is across the bridge in Arlington, it is a short Metro ride or drive to all of the prominent sites in DC and the surrounding areas. I would highly recommend staying here!

Room Tip: I always ask for a room on an upper floor, away from the elevators to get a quiet location.

Stayed here for three days in early August, very impressed with stay and property. This is a newer hotel, and is one of the better Residence Inns that I've been to. The room was pretty spacious and the kitchen was laid out well. The check-in service was friendly and efficient, and the room service was prompt. The Metro shuttle was timely. Overall, a quality addition to the Marriott brand.

Thank you very much for your patronage. We are proud to be considered by our guests as an "excellent hotel" and our friendly staff is always on hand to welcome you to our hotel. We are conveniently located to the Reagan National Airport, nearby shopping and dining, and don't forget there's plenty of sightseeing to do. Our complimentary shuttle service will provide transportation to the Crystal City Metro and from there you can access the DC area in a snap! Isn't it nice to know there's a hotel you can count on when you're in our area?

Clean comfortable room, airport shuttle, shuttle to the metro, hot breakfast, fitness room. One piece of advice: If you go to the Fitness room, leave from the door that you entered.The fitness room is shared with the Renaissance Hotel. We couldn't find our room until we went back to the Fitness room and went out the other side!

Thank you for choosing the Residence Inn Arlington Capital View Hotel for your stay. We are grateful for your review. As you have discovered, the Residence Inn is a dual property hotel, shared with the Renaissance Arlington Capital View. This is a unique property in Crystal City and it allows our guests to enjoy two Marriott hotel brands in one! Both hotels share the Fitness Center, Pool, and Laundry facilities and there is access to these areas in both hotels. Thank you for giving a heads up to other guests who will be coming into the hotel. We hope to see you again soon.

Had 2 rooms, 2 nights, for a family trip. Staff was exceptional from check-in to breakfast buffet. Rooms were both clean and well laid out. Finally a hotel that puts outlets near the bed for plugging in phones, etc. Nice kitchen with large refrigerator and all needed plates/bowls/utensils. 0.5 mi walk to Metro to easily get to DC, but they have a shuttle available as well. Many nice restaurants in short walking distance. Parking was $24 in garage, but I was fortunate to find a free on-street spot less than a block away. Highly recommend this for everyone.

I booked the hotel through priceline.com express deal, not knowing the room type. I paid $79 with tax for the room. I got a bed room with a kind bed and a sofa bed. The room was very clean and it had everything! It has a kitchen! It comes with free breakfast and dinner. The wifi works well. The staff was helpful too. I arrived early and checked in early at 1 PM! The hotel has shuttle buses running between Metro station (Crystal City) and the hotel every 20 mins, also between DCA and the hotel. We order some Chinese food for delivery at night, it was pretty convenient. I really enjoy staying here. I noticed the reviews are good on tripadvisor but still want to share my experience. It is worth staying.

The staff was very helpful and friendly. The breakfast each morning was very good and varied slightly each day so that we weren't eating the exact same thing every day. Full breakfast with hot items as well as waffled, cereal, fruit, etc. I was not aware until we got there that the hotel offered a shuttle to the Crystal City metro stop...that was just a bonus! The hotel is located near great shopping and dining options as well as easy access to Reagan Airport and Washiington, D.C.
The only drawback to the hotel is that the rooms aren't as large as the typical Reisdence Inn. I was expecting a little more space. Other than that, this hotel is an absolute jewel. Highly recommended.

We are, indeed, a "jewel" located in the heart of Crystal City and we'd be so delighted if you would consider us for another stay.
