“Utilitarian”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2012

This is a good place to stay for practical reasons only. The location is conveniently near the entrance to Highway 66, but not close enough that you can hear it. My room was equipped with a kitchen, which came in handy because there are no late-night restaurants open anywhere nearby. You won't feel at home, but you will appreciate its good points.

Pros: Easy access to Highway 66. Excellent tv, with all HD channels (something I've not seen even in the luxury hotels in the DC area). Good work space with outlets. Clean and bright bathroom. Breakfast and dinner are free. The staff were polite, warm, and professional.

Cons: The hotel is far from good restaurants. The very low shower pressure is pitiful and frustrating. There is no carpeting for the entrance. The living space is very cramped. The carpet is horrid. Much noise and light pollution flood the room from the boulevard and parking lots to south.

We stayed here for 3 nights Dec 27-29 and were very impressed with facility as well as the size and quality of the room. There were several restaurants within walking distance and a short drive to the Vienna Metro stop. Rates are great on weekend and holidays. Highly recommended.

Newly constructed hotel with all the conveniences of home. Modestly modern decor (not overkill). Nice finishing touches every where you look. Very close to the highway for easy accessibility. Friendly accommodating staff. I'm a frequent hotel guest all over the world and have to say I was a bit reluctant to stay at a residence inn at all, but I am more that pleased and actually surprised by the great experience. I would have to say this hotel is absolutely on par with many 5 star hotels. Stay here! You will not be disappointed!

I really can't think of anything bad to say about this hotel. Might be because it is brand new, but everything's so contemporary and clean. Staff is pleasant, there's a evening reception Mon-Thurs, hot breakfast buffet every morning, plenty of parking, excellent location.
The room itself was very clean, large flat screen TV, and kitchen area had pretty good quality utensils/glassware/plates/pans. Very roomy.

This is a fairly new hotel so it has a nice modern look and is very clean. The rooms are a good size and the breakfast is great. We usually stay on weekends when the prices are very reasonable. Service was great. we needed a few things and teh front desk accomodated us vey quickly. On one of our stays we had a small problem with a shower that leaked, just a little. Once we told the front desk about teh problem it was fixed immeadiately.
