“Excellent Hotel within Footsteps of Capitol”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

My husband and I chose this hotel because of its proximity to Capital Hill, and it's also a reasonable walk to the Mall. The staff could not have been more courteous and welcoming. The rooms are spacious and well equipped if one has a longer stay or is cost-conscious about going to DC restaurants. The room included a microwave, fridge, dishwasher, coffee maker, dishes and utensils. It would be an excellent choice for families, especially because breakfast is included. I was also surprised that a dinnertime meal was also offered 3 nights a week.

Stayed 4 nights with the family after Xmas. The location is ideal for visiting the museums along the Mall as well as the Capitol, all within walking distance. We had a room facing the street, so we did not have to deal with the train noise others have described. The hotel was busy, and there were lines for breakfast and elevators if you arrived later in the morning, but if you went early there was no issue. The staff was friendly and efficient, especially given the crowds. We opted not to park in the hotel lot based upon the reviews ($30 a night and no guarantee of a spot), but since we were not driving during the day, we opted to park in one of the private lots around the hotel (about $13 a day, closing at 7 pm), and then parking on the street at night.

I only rated very good if you're looking for a hotel with families. If you are not with a family of young children then I would actually try to find somewhere else. The lobby is packed full of kids running everywhere. The rush for breakfast and the lines for the food is quite large. For my three young kids this was a good place for us to stay.

Great location. 1 block from the Metro. Within walking distance to the tourist attractions. Good daily breakfast and it was included as always. Great free WIFI reception. My room was on the 8th and it was spacious with all the amenities Residences Inns have. Staff was friendly. I asked for a late check out and it was allowed. There is a pizza shop right next door. It was not bad.

I have stayed at this property several times while in DC for business, great location, close to the metro, short walk to the waterfront. Clean rooms, courteous staff and a good breakfast. This hotel is close to several of the government office buildings, there are not many restaurants close by so you will have to walk or cab it .

I read many of the reviews of this hotel prior to my recent trip to D.C. I agree with the majority of them. My experience was very similar. Great location and walking distance to the National Mall, well maintained property and dining/kitchen staff absolutely made each morning pleasant. They were very genuine and sociable.

The rooms felt like you were staying in someone's apartment instead of a hotel. Spacious, clean, comfortable rooms with all the amenities you and your family might need for a short trip or an extended vacation.

I stayed here for one night with my wife. My mom was also travelling with us, so I reserved a separate room for her. I knew that parking was limited, so I made sure to get there reasonably early in the afternoon. They had plenty of space available in the garage. They also upgraded BOTH of our rooms to suites, which turned out to be WAY more room than any of us needed. The suites were huge, with bedroom, bathroom, and living area that includes a corner kitchen and dining table. For the rate we paid, it was a steal.

We were there to take advantage of the proximity to the Mall. It's only three blocks to walk to the Botanical Garden and the Museum of the American Indian. The Capitol is also a very easy walk. Great location.

We had no trouble with noise. Wifi was good. Breakfast was forgettable. Clientele seemed to be mostly business folks. The neighborhood is almost 100% federal office buildings, so it is pretty deserted at night. For any dinner options or nightlife, you'll have to go elsewhere. Federal Center SW metro is only one block away.

Stayed November 2012, traveled with family
