I've stayed here a lot over the last two years (not my choice.) The renovations are nice but they have never fixed the problems with the TV signal. The picture and sound comes and goes or stops completely. I always get the "we are working on it" or "unplug and plug it back in" response. I've even spoken to Dave,... More

I've stayed here multiple times, and always look to it as a possible place to lodge when heading to Northern Virginia. It's tucked back off the street, so it has a quiet feel to it, but it' located near several major thoroughfares for easy access to I-495 and I-66, as well as route 50. It's as easier to get anywhere... More

Our family of 4 recently stayed here for 3 nights visiting relatives. We had a 2 bedroom 2 bath suite. The room looked recently updated/renovated with a full kitchen. The layout is similar to other Residence Inn locations. There is a nice, small gym, and an outdoor pool which we used while there. There was a life guard on duty... More

i had low expectations coming here but this place is even worse than i had anticipated! the rooms are clean and spacious but the (tiny) bed seems to have completely lost its bounce and the toiletries are just sad. the most horrific part about this hotel, however, is the (complimentary) breakfast buffet. every single item i had this morning was...

Good Morning Jessica, Thank you for staying with us at the Residence Inn Merrifield and for taking the time to review your stay. I am surprised to hear that the "tiny bed seems to have completely lost its bounce" as we just completed a full guest room renovation and installed new queen mattresses in all of our bedrooms. However it... More

This Residence Inn is a comfortable, clean, well run establishment---from the helpful and professional front desk staff to housekeeping to those responsible for the AM breakfast--this property has it all. Have stayed there twice now--and it will not be the last time. A bonus--easy short walk to Starbucks, a supurb Thai restaurant, ,and a solild, bar and grill, reviewed separately.... More

The Assistant General Manager, Susana Bonanno's skills are the consummate package in hospitality. I commended the Marriott Hotels for having the standards to hire staff who have her level of expertise.

We stayed this past week over a 4 day weekend (Fri-Mon) and had no complaints. The check-in process was fast and easy and our room was nice and clean. We had the "basics" of what we needed as far as dishes, TVs, etc and overall our 2 bedroom suite was perfect for our group of 5 people. We did have... More

I was underwhelmed with the actual room and building. Parking was underground and a little tricky The AC didn't work in the hallway we stayed on, but it was the hottest day of the year so far. I did feel very safe as a room key was required to get anywhere on property. The courtyard is very nice. The breakfast... More

This was a good 3- day stay at one of the few good hotels that would take our dog. Right in the heart of things at a key strategic location yet nicely landscaped to seem an oasis or escape. Rooms could be bigger for the price and bathrooms are small and cramped. Staff is professional but not effusive or overly... More
