“Very Convenient Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

There are 2 issues at this hotel. The first one is the train track that is just behind the hotel. If you're a light sleeper, choose a room away from that end though you still can hear it anyway. A room facing the capitol means that you'll also be facing the train track. As the hotel is in the middle of major buildings, there is basically no view. But as you'll be on the road most of the day, it shouldn't be an issue. The other issue you need to be aware of is the parking lot. There is very limited space inside the hotel so you should be prepared to park your car in the street. That means that you should be willing to wake-up at 7AM to pay for the parking space with a limit of 2 hours only. The hotel can do a better job of estimating how many residents bought the parking space inside the hotel and once they run out of space, they need to make other checking-in residents aware of what they need to do. I bought the internal parking option ($30/night!) but when I came back, there was no space. I parked at the street and informed the reception. The receptionist told me to bring the hotel parking permit (that you keep in your car) back so as not to be charged by the hotel(they don't take your word). I had to go back to my car and bring this piece back.If you find a space again, you need to go back to the reception and get a new permit!! I stayed 3 nights and was only able to find space for one night. Very inconvenient parking process

Room Tip: If you're a light sleeper, choose a room away from the train track. A room facing the capitol m...

If you are with several people, this is a great choice. Would not be great for couples or single travellers. Breakfast included and fine, standard fare. Stayed in a 2 bedroom suite - these are hard to find in DC. Location is good for museums, other reviews that say it is not close to restaurants are true but it is a cheap easy cab ride to lots of good choices. Would stay there again.

Room Tip: Away from railroad tracks - did get woken up by train whistle once in 3 nights

The location is great with only a few minute's walk to the Air & Space Museum along with the Mall. On the weekends there aren't many amenities close to the hotel since many businesses are closed, but we found a few sandwich shops nearby that was suitable for lunch.

The staff was friendly and although breakfast was busy, they offered a different mix of items on the 2 mornings we were there. The staff was friendly and bused the tables which is not common at the Residence Inns.

We used the pool/spa and exercise facilities which were all well maintained. The room with the pool could have been a bit warmer since the pool is not heated.

The hotel is very clean and pleasant with specious rooms.
It is conveniently located 1.5 blocks from a metro station and 5 minutes' walk from the national mall.
However, there are no real restaurants in walking distance.
The breakfast is OK, not more.
The staff is friendly.
Overall good value for money.

This is a great place to stay while visiting the museums, especially fabulous because you have a kitchenette (full size fridge) which will help you save on all of those spendy dinner/lunches out.

A breakfast bar is included and runs 6:30-9:30am so you can get a quick bite before the museum death march you will undoubtedly be going on.

James was especially helpful getting us into a room today. Great service! He made sure we had tons of area information. James also locked up our bags while we rant to get a quick bite before heading out on our adventure (before we had checked in).

You will pay to park but you may not need to take your car out of the garage until you are ready to go home, the hotel is convenient to the subway (Federal Center Stop) and rail stations.

Free Wi-Fi in the rooms - Love it! There is a desk in the living room in case you have to do some work during your stay. Everything was clean, the bed was comfortable.. we could not have been happier.

Room Tip: This is close to the Federal Center Subway Stop and makes everything very convenient. You may think...

Convenient location: very close to National Mall. Specious room. Very clean. Bed is great. Sofabed was as comfortable as our queen size bed. Towels are soft and white. Complimentary coffee (regular and decaf) is in the lobby all day long. Full size refrigerator and kitchenette with all necessary utensils is definitely great bonus. Parking is under the hotel. $35 per night. Complimentary breakfast - variety is outstanding. Friendly staff at reception desk. We would come back.

We recently stayed at this hotel on a family trip to DC. Two queen beds with a door between the beds and living room with a sofabed made it enjoyable for Grandpa to be in the seperate room. Very spacious and comfortable room and setup. From the time we checked in, to multiple trips to the front desk for help, the service was outstanding.

When we asked about help setting up a night tour of the monuments they were able to reccomend a driver for us that did an outstanding job at a cheaper price than the bus tours with great service.

The breakfast was also very good, the quality of food was good and the service there was great as well, with staff picking up our dishes and cleaning tables to continually have open seating available. They know how to provide a great breakfast experience.

This property is within 2 1/2 blocks from some of the Smithsonian museums and maybe 4 blocks from the Capitol, this made a great tourist spot or would be outstanding for meetings within the House of Representatives offices. Well done Residence Inn, well done!!!
