The Residence Inn Arlington Courthouse is a great value for families traveling to DC on weekends. It is also a good choice for extended stay business Travelers. On weekends the rates drop to $150/room/night, and I have seen last minute deals of $100/night. The rate includes a wonderful breakfast buffet. The buffet has hot and cold items, and a make your own waffle station. The breakfast will send you off full for your day of sightseeing or business, and ready to skip lunch. You can eat inside or out on the patio. We enjoyed the patio.
Located a block from the Courthouse Metro stop, getting into DC is easy. The metro will also get you to Reagan National Airport or the Pentagon easily. A taxi to or for the airport is about $16 dollars (without tip). Our cab literally arrived at the front door just as we did after having the front desk call. We also noticed that cabs seemed to frequently drive by the front door looking for riders. Two stopped to see if we needed a ride within about 3 minutes that we were waiting for our son to pick us up. After that we decided we better wait inside.
The rooms are spacious with a king size bed, a living area with a sofa bed, a full kitchen a dining area and a work space. The closet and sink are outside the bathroom, allowing someone to shave or dress while someone else showers. The bath has a full bath/shower combination. The room has very homey details - art work, bowling pins and a metal car on a shelf, popcorn and coffee in the kitchen, a key hook and magazine rack that meet you at the door, and magnets holding the activities and facilities information on the refrigerator door. Just like at home.
The staff to a person was extremely friendly and professional. They seemed ready to make any wish happen. They had a list welcoming guests checking in by first name and first letter of the last name (all sorted by Marriott Rewards level). The rewards level aside, it was a welcoming touch. They also had free cookies on check-in.
The hotel has free WiFi throughout and free wired internet connections in the rooms as well. The business center computers and printer/copiers are also free.
The lobby is spacious, but cozy, attractively decorated and comfortable. It looks out on the patio and has a large flat-screen TV, a fireplace and another sitting area are on the back side of the chimney. The business center is tucked away in an area of the lobby.
The hotel has a pool, a workout room (with cardio machines and small free weights), and a washer/drier room with plenty of machines.
Security is excellent. To begin with, Courthouse is a very safe and pleasant neighborhood. You need your room card to access your floor by elevator, and at night a security guard is in the lobby.
We have stayed at this Residence Inn twice and love it!
