What a surprise the Residence Inn was - as a frequent international business traveller it was so much better than I was expecting and much better than many expensive 5 star hotels I have stayed in lately. It is obvious that Marriott have really done their research and have got the formula for this hotel type really right. it is not very imposing on the outside however inside is well decorated. The apartment type layout is really comfortable and very well decorated. Bathrooms are spotless, spacious and generally the staff were pleasant and helpful. Dont expect fancy restaurants or bar service - this is just not that kind of place, however the breakfast was good. If you like to dine out, you may be disappointed if you want anything other than family type chain restaurants. You will also need a car to get here as it isnt near any easy transport routes. A cab from Dulles airport took me 45 minutes and cost about $60.00. But times can vary as my colleagues got stuck in traffic and reported the trip took much longer.
also appreciated the opening windows however it was a bitter disappointment to hear the loud drone of the airconditioning units on both sides of my room so ended up closing my windows just to get some peace and quiet.
Highly recommend this property because of the high standard of the rooms.
