We arrived here after a not-so-comfortable-stay in NY and were pleasantly surprised by ...well..everything!
The staff at check-in was super friendly and helpful and even called later to make sure that we liked our room. The room was very spacious, clean and well equipped. We almost regretted not to be able to stay longer than 3 nights.
The breakfast offered everything we wanted: fruit, rolls, bagels, waffles, cereals, eggs and sausages, juice, etc. Afterwards, the metro shuttle took us (every 20min) to the Crystal City Metro station from where it was very easy to start into a day of sightseeing in Washington DC.
Upon our return, we used the well equipped fitness room and the small pool to relax a bit before having dinner - there are many different restaurants available in Crystal City all accessible by shuttle (until 11PM).
On our last day, we were even able to take the shuttle bus to Reagan Airport.
All in all, I would definitely recommend staying at the Residence Inn Capital View in Arlington as it offers great value for the price you pay.
(Only two suggestions:
1. Put a shuttle bus stop sign somewhere near the metro stop so that new arrivals know where to wait for it.
2. Provide a bathrobe for Residence Inn Capital View guests...otherwise using the pool is a bit uncomfortable. Or don't offer the use of the pool to both hotels.)
Green Features: Didn't find much amiss. The only thing that irked me was the fact that they claim to only switch on you dishwasher when it's at least half full...well, when we came back in the evening, it had been switched on with only a glass and two spoons in it!!

I'm glad we were able to turn things around for you after a rough start in NY. The Residence Inn Arlington Capital View Hotel is the perfect place to unwind and relax. Following a good night's sleep, fuel up with a complimentary breakfast in our Gatehouse, hop on the shuttle, and let the adventures begin! We appreciate your review and hope it will inspire others to give us a try. Thank you very much.
