We stayed here overnight while attending a funeral for a family member in D.C. The hotel was nice, room was a bit smaller than some, but very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was okay--not the best, but as we were not really here for pleasure it sufficed. The location was quiet and it was very convenient for getting into the city...

I stay here every year when I am in town for a conference. This is by far one of my favorite hotels I have ever stayed in. Always clean and always welcoming, this is a top-notch hotel from top to bottom. Large, clean bathrooms, comfortable beds, great kitchens; I find myself never wanting to leave my room.

What a great staff and hotel! The location is prime - easy to find and centrally located. The rooms were clean, well-laid out and well-equipped.

This location is one of the best Residence Inn I've stayed at. My suite did not have a tub only a shower. The decor was very nice and the bed and pillows where very comforted to me. I was on the fifth floor and the noise level was very low. I did not eat breakfast or the evening social, but...

What an awesome property. The location is not too appealing and when we first drove up to the main entrance, I was a little apprehensive. The hotel is located between two very busy roads. However, the minute you step into the main lobby, you know you have made a good choice. Somehow in the middle of this very, very congested...

A sizeable part of our family got together for a weekend away and stayed at this property. It was large, clean, attractive and well appointed. The breakfast and the breakfast room were fabulous!
