“Yes - Ants”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2010

It's true there are ants - lots of them - the place seems built on an anthill or something. And, yes, the breakfast is gross (but this IS the States). There was some good after work hors d'oeuvres though.

The staff is very friendly - but it doesn't really make up for the shortfalls. The place is always packed though and the staff tells me they are renovating soon.

Not soon enough...

Less then $100 for a panthouse suite, that's a excellent value for 6 people. Clean, free parking, free breakfast.....
Even it's a little bit far from downtown, it's worthy

- First ANTS... do you like ants all over the place... well I dont... and I changed rooms only to find more ants...
- Free Brakefast... wow, sounds great! Well thrust me it was not! everything was cold... and I am talking about, eggs, meat, patatos... it was really bad... the bagels were great (thank god!)
- Pool... ah the Pool well actually the pool guy... you see every time the sun went away, he looked up and smiled! locked up the pool and went inside on the internet!
- and the keys! well the keys... they just kept on getting deproogrammed, all 3 keys 3 days in a row...

the room is very nice and good size (If you like ANTS!) but they really need to get a couple of things fixed up in this hotel, this is NOT what I would expect about a Marriot residence inn...

And just to help the whole area around Tyson Corner is under so mutch repairs it crasy around here... so mutch traffic... and if you did get out of Tyson corner then you probably end up on 495 to get anywhere and thats even worse... so mutch traffic it was not even funny...

Just wanted to get away for the weekend with my husband and child, we arrived and the customer service was excellent but the room needs an up grade, tv, kitchen appliances, head board, mattress was very hard and the towels had stains on a few of them. I woke up with a back ache, then decided to cut our trip short.

We traveled to Washington, DC for our daughters college graduation. We chose to stay in Tysons Corner instead of the District to save money. We got a great weekend rate for a 2 bedroom unit that was near the Mall and close to the freeway. The room was clean and worked well for the 4 of us in the room. We even had a small reception for family to celebrate the graduation. A trip to the local Trader Joe's and use of the rooms full kitchen saved us lots of money. The only caveat: the weekday commute into DC is horrendous! Allow lots of extra time. Weekends were a breeze.

I truly cannot believe the reviews for this hotel. As a Marriott Platinum member, this hotel does not meet the Marriott standard. First, and this is a personal opinion, the rooms are garden-style with doors to the exterior. I find this to be insecure, especially with the location of this hotel down a cul-de-sac and secluded. D.C. has crime, and I didn't feel safe at this hotel staying by myself. Secondly, the main lobby is very tired and needs updating. It also smelled. The room was mediocre but in need of updates. The appliances are old, and because there are several windows/doors to outside, you can hear people walking around outside. The Internet service was difficult for me to connect to as they only had wireless and no plug-in connectivity. I left this hotel 20 minutes after checking-in and went to the Courtyard near the mall, which was more convenient and nicer. I would not recommend this Residence Inn to anyone.

GTravelgirl,

We sincerely apologize for your feelings about our room style not being to Marriott standards. We feel that our garden style rooms are a feature that makes us unique for this area. We wish that you would have stayed and allowed us the opportunity to make up for your disapointment with the quality and friendliness of service staff. When you are back in the area we would be honored to have you as our guest so we may demonstrate our ability to exceed your expectations. We hope to see you soon! Happy travels!

Booked this hotel for two nights while visiting the D.C. area. Loved the location of the hotel; quiet cul-de-sac surrounded by local commerce and nice tree lined streets. The area of Tysons Corner and Vienna itself is first class and a wonderful place to stay. The rooms at this hotel are tastefully decorated and well appointed. However, the one thing that put a damper on our stay was the service from the front desk clerk. At check in, we were told that our two bedroom suite that we had booked was "not available" and that we would be assigned two studio rooms instead. Funny considering this was a guaranteed reservation. The two rooms were promised to be beside each other, but when we arrived at the building assigned to us, the rooms were on opposite sides of the building. We tried again in another building assigned to us, and once again the clerk had given us rooms on opposite sides. After having to explain our request to the clerk for the third time, this time with actually "drawing a picture", proper rooms were assigned beside each other. All in all, this hotel is one of the best Residence Inn properties I have ever stayed in, however the service I received at this location was subpar........
