We used this hotel as a base for a three day trip to DC and Baltimore and were pleased with its location. It is handy for Dunn Loring Metro Station and is only just off the interstate, which suited us. There are a number of shops and restaurants in the area too, including a huge Target , which appears fairly new.
We use a fair few Residence Inns and would rank this one up there with the quality of its breakfast buffet.
The ladies work hard clearing tables and restocking the buffet which, to me, is always a good sign of a well run place.
We had a one bedroom unit up on the fourth floor of four and, whilst it was a good trek to the breakfast room and reception it was very handy for the lift to the underground car park. The car park is another plus to go with the clean, well maintained suites and the breakfast staff.
The two minus points for me are the abysmally slow internet connection - both on wired and wi-fi, and on every available network. It was so slow, it was almost unusable.
The other minus point was the poor quality of the TV signals of the analogue channels - they had a few HD channels, which were okay (except when the 'no signal' message appeared) but the analogue ones with grainy and unwatchable. We didn't spend to much time in the room, so neither of these issues were major, but they would have been on a longer stay.
All in all, the plus points outweigh the minor niggles and I would have no problem staying here again.
