“Excellent all around hotel”
Reviewed May 20, 2014

We stayed for 3 weeks in April 2014. The high light of this hotel has to be the excellent staff. The service was always outstanding friendly and helpful. The hotel is only a couple blocks from a Metro stop. This was our first visit to Washington DC and the location made sight seeing very convenient.. Breakfast was provided every morning a nice way to start your day. Dinner was provided 3 days a week.

We - a family of 3 stayed in May 2014 at this wonderful hotel. The best part of the hotel was its location - wonderfully located to all the usual touristic attractions. This was our first visit as a family to Washington and it was important for us to cover as much of the city on offer together. Our concierge at the hotel was great in suggesting an evening tour of the city - thoroughly enjoyed it. The hotel itself was very efficient and well-managed. The room was a 1-bedroom studio apartment with a lovely kitchenette - it was indeed very nice to have our own finger food during the breaks and with a mall right round the corner - we were spoilt for choices. The breakfast was okay, nothing to write home about in terms of choice but can't complain. The space is limited at the breakfast cafe and there is always a sense that we may be preventing someone else from a table if we did not eat it fast and scoot - I think maybe that was the real issue for us rather than food being served at breakfast which was quite alright, come to think of it.!

We stayed here for the first time in May. What a gem! You are close to the National Mall, right around the corner from the Metro and down the street from the grocery store and a CVS. There is a train track that runs alongside the hotel but we never heard a horn just the click clack.

Room Tip: If you don't want traffic avoid the 2nd floor - the pool is on that floor

This a newer Residence Inn property, conveniently located just a few blocks form the major attractions. Rooms are new and spacious. Make note that during the weekend it is free to park on the street, which I did to avoid the $35 fee to park at the hotel.

We stayed at the Residence Inn in Williamsburg and thought we would try the one in DC. The hotel itself is not bad. We had a one bedroom suite. It has two queens in the bedroom and one bath. The fold out couch is like sleeping on an air mattress filled with lumpy cement. The toilet did not flush at first but maintenance fixed it straight away. One of the drawers in the kitchen was broken but we didn't use it anyway. The only thing that is nuts is the PARKING! If you drive in, be aware that the gate will open automatically even without a key card. We got stuck there when we saw the key card slot and thought we needed to back up. We did that and it was the most challenging driving experience in the world. Made it without a scratch. Upon leaving however the driveway is so narrow and twists so suddenly to the left that I ended up scratching my front bumper on my brand new Ford Explorer. So my $40 parking fed turned into a $200 repair bill. If you have a small car it's fine. SUV? Park next door or have someone guide you out of the garage on foot. I'm not exaggerating, it is the worst parking garage I have ever been in. I actually thought about suing them for damages but I would have lost my case. Just be aware that there is NO WARNING about the sharp left turn past the gate. Other than that the hotel is within walking distance to the major sights. Skip the free dinner, it's worse than prison food. Breakfast is good however.

We stayed here as a family of 3 with another family of 4. The rooms were quite large, with a sofa bed that was okay enough for an adult to sleep on..though a bit wonky as you might expect such things to be. The breakfast was very good, and very well attended, which made it slow going at times. A free dinner was also offered, to my amazement, which was also very well attended. The food was okay and helpful on the day it was pouring rain. The pool was big enough to have scores of children play in...way too crowded for an adult. It got a bit out of control at times, though and too loud...but this didn't bother the children. The hot tub was small but effective.There were laundry facilities which is useful. All in all a good stay. The walls were a tad thin, but not too much of a problem.

We stayed six nights in a two bedroom suite. The location is convenient, two blocks from the Federal Center Metro station, 10 minute walk to Capitol, four blocks to Safeway grocery story. Staff was very friendly since the check in. Cleaning ladies at the breakfast buffet were polite and always smiling. We didn't find any problem for eating since we only ate lunch out while we were sightseeing. Hot breakfast was included in the price and we cooked our own dinners. The store downstairs was a life saver the first night after a late arrival. We could buy sodas, beer, cookies and microwave food.
I would highly recommend this hotel for families who don't mind walking.
PS. My husband did not like the buffet. He would have liked cheese, ham and bread breakfast but the rest of the family (including our 1 1/2 year toddler) agree that the chocolate muffins were delicious!
