“wonderful spring break stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

The Residence Inn was a great stay. The hotel is beautiful and up to date. The rooms were wonderfully stocked and clean. They have a good breakfast in the morning. Eggs, waffles, sausages, etc. with the standard cereals, toast, etc. I noted some people complained about the shuttle service to the metro. True, it stayed busy during our stay, but the staff made the rounds more frequently when the volume increased. I noted they even provided a larger van to accomodate the influx. All in all the wait was only 10-15 mins at the max. I saw nothing wrong with this service. If we had to come and stay again, this would be my pick!

Thank you for taking the time to submit a reivew to TripAdvisor and for mentioning the improvements we have made to our shuttle service. We understand that our guests have places to go, things to do, and people to see, and waiting for a shuttle to get them there is an inconvenience. We are always looking for ways to improve our guest satisfaction and that is why forums like TripAdvisor are helpful. We hear you!

The Residence Inn was very friendly, helpful, clean. We would always stay there when possible. Very convieniently located by the airport and the best part is there is a complementary shuttle to the airport.

Pros:
- Room has a full-sized fridge with ice maker, plenty of utensils and cooking tools.
- Ample breakfast.
- Need a midday snack? There are sometimes apples available in the fitness room.

Cons:
- The free shuttle to the metro is perpetually full, so they often had to leave people behind. This is the reason I gave this hotel four stars instead of five.
- The pillows and mattresses weren't to my liking, and there was an exhaust fan over the bed that wouldn't quit.

Advice: The Renaissance Inn is on the other side of the building. Get on the shuttle here instead, and you'll have a greater chance of getting a seat.

Thank you for your feedback regarding your experience at the Residence Inn Arlington Capital View Hotel. We are taking measures to add an additional shuttle during peak times to ensure our guests of an efficient means of transportation to the Crystal City Metro. We never want our guests to feel left behind and by adding the shuttle, we hope to earn that extra star!

I stayed here 4 nights while attending a business event down the street and can't say enough good things about this place. My initial concern was its distance from the Crystal City Metro station (and restaurants and shopping); however, the hotel runs a shuttle service to the Metro station every 20 minutes which was very convenient. It's also not a bad walk if the weather's nice (10-15 minutes). The breakfast and evening meals were fantastic, the rooms were spotless, and staff were friendly and helpful. I've stayed in numerous hotels in the D.C. area, and this was by far the best for the price. Being so close to Reagan National is a big plus, too.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the east side of the building (facing the Capital).

This was our first trip to DC and chose this hotel based on the excellent reviews and was not disappointed. The room was spacious and bed was quite comfortable. Loved the breakfast in the morning, lots to choose from and was a good start to the day. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. Hotel has both a shuttle to the airport and the metro but decided to walk to the metro, only about a 10-15 min walk. There is a nice trail a short distance from the hotel called Mt. Vernon trail which takes you by the airport and along the potomac river. Lots of shops and restaurants within walking distance. Overall an excellent stay.

We are so glad you came to stay with us. Thank you for pointing out so many highlights about our hotel and the surrounding local area. Now that the weather is warming up, our guests can take advantage of the complimentary bicycles available next door at our sister hotel, and check out the Mount Vernon trail you mentioned in your review. Perhaps you can do this, too, on your next visit with us.

Took a group of 10 here at a great price. Front desk staff extremely friendly and helpful, rooms clean and new. My room faced the airport but you couldn't hear a sound. Breakfast was also quite good. A lumpy bed was my only complaint on the room. Would definitely stay here again with family or on business. Parking fee is a bit steep, but otherwise this was worth every penny.

This is a hotel used primarily by people doing business in DC and has a main point proximity to the Reagan National Airport. I stayed as I had a convention at the Hyatt Regency and this was cheaper, got better reviews, and was nearly across the street.

The room was very modern with an open floor plan and well appointed kitchen area. The bed and bedding were acceptable but nothing special. Breakfast buffet was included in the price. This is a nice property for the price point. If you are there with a car, the parking fee can kill you $24. But, if there on the weekend just tell them you aren't using the garage and park on the street.

Thank you for choosing us for your conference stay. We appreciate the comments about the hotel and, as you discovered, it is not always necessary to use the parking garage. There is available street parking near the hotel that is more accessible on the weekends. Please come back to see us again.
