We've been at this Residence Inn for three weeks now because of a flood at our house resulting in a large insurance claim restoration job. The staff here are the best in the business -- from front desk to housekeeping to the folks running the food service. The facility is very clean -- not posh, but very clean and well-appointed. We have a two-bedroom suite with a living room/kitchen/dining room combo. There are three flat-screen HD tvs, 2 bathrooms, 2 queen beds and a sofa bed.
They serve breakfast daily including a waffle iron, fresh fruit, mini muffins, bread and English muffins, scrambled eggs (not real eggs though, I don't think), sausage or thin-sliced Canadian bacon, and either a potato/onion/pepper mix or something called potato pancakes. They also have a variety of cereals. Breakfast is fine for a day or two, but gets repetitive if you've been there a while.
They also serve a dinner meal on Tues, Wed and Thurs. It's usually a protein of some sort (meatloaf, chicken, etc), some starches and a garden salad with rolls and then cake for dessert. It's not fancy, but its pretty good, especially if you don't want to go out. If you do venture out, there's a Logan's Road House, Joe's Crab Shack and McDonalds on the road into the hotel and a couple of smaller restaurants nearby within walking distance. If you have a car there are a multitude of restaurants and three major shopping centers nearby. You're also right on Interstate 66 which makes commuting into downtown Washington easy.
One suggestion: You're at an intersection of two busy roads with a lot of traffic. While it's muffled inside, you can still hear it and if that bothers you (especially sirens) ask for a room which doesn't butt up against the roads or the construction. Pool front should be better and the pool closes at 8, so you don't have to worry about loud swimmers late.
