“Very good Residence Inn, though a little old”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

New lobby is nice, and the front desk lady is very nice. We spend 2 nights there. It is quite a standard Marriot residence. They have an park place underground. It is nice for winter time. I would recommend it for others. Overall it is not close to any main road, so most of room should be very quiet.

Room Tip: All rooms should be good, just watching for if the compressor is too close or not.

My 2 daughters and I booked two nights in a queen bed suite with a pullout couch at an amazing rate. We were settling my youngest in her dorm. We drove in from New York on Friday night and we were frazzled, starving and disorganized. The front desk staff was so pleasant and helpful. The room was clean (I dont put a thing in any hotel room before I check every nook and cranny) nicely decorated, spacious and well laid out. The fireplace was a big hit with the girls. The location was ideal. The staff helped the girls find a great place to get a late night dinner which was a 2 minute walk through the parking lot. Of course, one forgot to pack a toothbrush and we needed extra shampoo; we got both right away with a smile. I'm a night owl and the sitting area by the front desk was wonderful: comfortable seating, fireplace, tv, computer room. I even used the treadmill in the "gym." The equipment seemed quite new and the room was well appointed but very small. The next morning they had a lovely buffet breakfast. The staff was very attentive and kept every dish full. They have a lovely courtyard with a pool and basketball area. We will definitly be staying here whenever we come to to DC.

Room Tip: Th hotel is quite large and its a real trek to the lobby. There are many elevators and theres a sho...

Had to stay here two nights while we had home repairs done. Decent, clean hotel with comfortable beds, good size bathroom/shower and a great breakfast buffet in the morning with tons of nice selections as well as free copies of Washington Post and USA Today. I would recommend.

We stayed here for one night while visiting relatives who live in Falls Church. We had a two bedroom suite which was very spacious and clean. The room had a full kitchen which we didn't need, but if you were thinking about staying here long term, you definitely could. This is not a high end, luxury place, but everything was nice and comfortable. Lots of extra amenities included. Free wi-fi. Free breakfast - which was actually pretty extensive for this type of free hotel breakfast buffet. Bottom line - if I were back in the area, I would stay here again.

We stayed at this hotel for almost two months this summer after my husband had surgery at Inova Fairfax Hospital. The location was very convenient to the hospital and there was also a strip mall with several stores within walking distance. We needed a CVS frequently and it was right there too. The hotel could use some updating but was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. It was also very quiet. The entire staff ( front desk, kitchen and housekeeping) were very courteous to us the entire time we were there. The breakfast and evening meals / movie night with popcorn were a very nice touch. We had a two bedroom suite with a fully loaded kitchen which was great for cooking our own meals. The kids enjoyed the outside pool. The only concern we had was that pets are allowed and my husband cannot be around animals due to allergies and certain rooms are not designated as pet friendly rooms only- so we just hoped our room was cleaned really well before we moved in which it seemed to be. It was our little home away from home this summer and we will never forget our stay there! We would definitely recommend this hotel!

Hotel is clean and conveniently located with free parking. Lobby has been updated but rooms have not. 2 Bedroom - 2 bath suites are great for 2 couples traveling together. Have stayed here before and will most likely stay here again. Can't beat the price.

Our baby was in the hospital across the street for a few months. We stayed at this hotel a number of times during her stay. The room was very clean and the hotel was quiet. Those are two of my biggest issues. I liked the full size kitchen and it was stocked with utensils. The're were several nice amenities that we did not get to take advantage of such as staff would do grocery shopping or send out dry cleaning. There is a short walk way to a strip mall with several different dining options, a 24 hour CVS, and a bank. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We noticed the courtyard offered a swimming pool, small tennis court, and access to a nice ban grill. We were really able to rest well after long days at the hospital with all the comforts of being home. The bed, sheets, and pillows were excellent quality. It was not a posh or luxurious room but it had what we needed for our type of stay.
