Nothing about this hotel stands out as either superior or horrible. It is a Residence Inn, so you have a mini apartment of sorts. You will not be short on space here! The best part of the experience was the variety of the free breakfast. We stayed here for 3 nights so had the chance to have breakfast 3 different times. They give you more than bagels, cereal and toast, and even offer breakfast burritos, waffles, eggs, hashbrowns, breakfast meats and all of the items you can expect of a standard continental. I do not call this breakfast a standard continental, but they provide those things plus all of the above mentioned. The location is about 3 miles from the IAD terminal. Location is adjacent to a Red Robin, Famous Dave's and very close to a Target and other eating/shopping establishments. However, the next time we are in the IAD area, we may opt for another hotel closer to the terminal. This one isn't inconvenient, but we would just opt for something else another time! If you like Chipotle, you'll be happy to know there is one just 3 doors or so down! Not a bad hotel, just needs some updating to bring it up to standard Marriott par. Would stay again, but would first find another location first.
