“look forward to a return visit!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

We were in DC for a work conference, and decided to spend an extra night. We transferred from the Ritz, and I have to say, we raved about BOTH Hotels. Yes, your service for the value was great! Four of us stayed the evening. Took advantage of the shuttles both to the metro and to the airport. We were tired that evening and ordered lovely pizza from room service...very good. The staff at the desk were great and asked frequently if there was anything else they could do for us. Great free breakfast...we skipped the evening meal served for free, but did relax and enjoy two glasses of wine on the house!We have many friends who love to visit DC, us included. I see us coming down to see you again! Thanks for everything!

Room Tip: We had a one bedroom king suite. fold out sofa for 4 people. We were very confortable. Great kitc...

My husband and I, our teenager and 20 year old stayed at this property for 3 nights. We stayed the first night in a studio due to lack of 1 bedroom availability. This still worked out well for us. The room had a King bed and a pull-out queen sofa bed, a small but very adequate kitchen with full-size refrigerator, cook top, microwave, coffee maker, sink and dish washer. The bedroom gave us a bit more room (separate bedroom) but still the same amenities and king bed and pull out sofa. The convenience of having the laundry facilities was great. The fitness room had awesome equipment, free weights, many treadmills, bikes, etc and was quite large. The pool was the only disappointment. It was quite small and was the only pool for the Residence Inn and the attached Renaissance Inn. Free use of Trek Bikes was a huge bonus with the awesome trails around the Washington Area. Breakfasts had lots of offer and were great.

Room Tip: Both the Studio and 1 Bedrooms had were very quiet. In fact, our 1 bedroom was next to the elevator...

I stayed here because they had a good weekender rate. I was in DC on business and weekend vacation. Weeknights Mon-Wed there is a free night meal. Free hot breakfast every day of the week. Best free food I have seen- waffles, eggs, meat, oatmeal, cereal, yogurt, milk, juices, breads, coffee etc. That saved us alot of money each day by eating a good breakfast before touring the city.
The rooms were comfortable. The indoor pool in the hotel is small.The fitness center is nice. There is a free shuttle that runs every 30 minutes to the Crystal City metro. We found it an easy walk too. There are many restaurants about 5 or 6 blocks from the hotel with a few within easier/shorter access.
We would stay there again due to the good value on the weekend rate compared to many other hotels.

One of the greatest perks the Residence Inn Arlington Capital View has to offer is that we are close to everything without having it in our yard. After a long day of sightseeing and shopping, what better way to relax and enjoy your stay than to come back to the hotel on the quiet side of the city. And, just as you mentioned, there are several dining options nearby and we offer a free shuttle service that stops on 23rd Street, Crystal Drive, where you can dine to your heart's content. And, don't forget, for a dining experience that's truly memorable, you can take advantage of the dual property, Renaissance (located next door) and enjoy a fabulous dinner at SOCCi. Perhaps you can give them a try during your next stay. Thank you for submitting a review to TripAdvisor. We appreciate it very much.

Hint = Get a Chase Marriott Visa and you'll have preferrred status that gets you free internet at all Marriott branded hotels. The annual fee gets you a free night, so it's worth renewing (in my humble opinion).

This hotel is VERY busy (especially in the summertime) -- so expect the breakfast area to be congested. It's really a well organized machine, however, and if you are patient in the AM, you'll be rewarded with a fantastic breakfast as well as great service. Nice staff. Wonderfully clean rooms - quiet - A+++ on all counts.

We felt very safe wandering around in the evening. This used to be vacant lots, and it's been built up recently to be several very nice hotels right around the corner (Renaissance included, which offers a great bar with reasonably priced drinks.) Loved the free shuttle service to the airport (or nearby, your choice). We are always pleased with DC area Marriotts -- this new one is no exception.

Room Tip: Ask for a high room, in the corner, if possible.

Thank you for selecting the Residence Inn Arlington Capital View for your stay. I'm glad to see that you included comments regarding the safety of the hotel and the surrounding area. It is true, the Residence Inn (along with her sister Marriott hotel, Renaissance) were built from the ground up and opened in the spring of 2011 on the south end of Crystal City. It is a burgeoning area with promising new growth that has been well-received by our guests who were ready for a change in the Crystal City and DC area. We're glad that you gave us a chance to show you how much we appreciate our guests and hope you will continue to be a loyal guest.

This is an impeccable hotel: Shiny clean but comfortable, very friendly snd helpful service (kudos to the trainers), excellent restaurants within a short walk, close by Reagan airport, pool and workout room, great conference space. But why, why, why does a hotel that so clearly caters to the business class charge extra for in-room internet connection? Ditch the annoying internet charge and you have a truly great hotel experience.

Thank you for choosing the Residence Inn Arlington Capital View for your stay. I am happy that you were delighted with your stay, but a little confused as to why you thought you were paying for Wi-Fi service at the hotel. The Internet at our hotel is complimentary, as is our breakfast and Manager's Reception Evening Meal on Mondays-Wednesdays. If this might be a reason to keep you from ever coming back, I hope the clarification will change your mind and that we'll see you again, soon!

This hotel stands out in my mind for the most remarkable customer service. I stayed here for a month while in DC for business and the staff did everything to make me feel at home. Not only did the staff provide everything you would expect from a hotel, they went above and beyond to provide me with additional services and favors to make my life easier while on the road.

The location of this hotel leaves a bit to be desired if you are traveling to Downtown DC. It is not situated very close to a metro. It is about a mile walk, but the hotel makes up for it with free shuttle service every 20 minutes to the metro, and the airport. Once the shuttle was full, and a concierge offered to personally drive my coworkers and I to the metro instead. Outstanding customer service.

Amentites at this hotel are also wonderful for a long stay. The kitchen is modern, the gym is very big for a hotel, with many ellipticals, weights, treadmills, and other machines. The free breakfast was great. The free evening meal was wonderful too- 2-4 nights a week, there is a managers reception where a basic (but certainly adequate) meal is served, as well as 2 drinks for guests of age. Its not gourmet, but its certainly a good option if you want to stay in and save money. The food quality exceeded that of other Residence Inns i've stayed at in the past.

The staff really went out of their way to make my stay easy and enjoyable.

I stayed at the Residence Inn Arlington Capital View over the weekend of the Fourth with a group of friends. We absolutely loved our stay-- not only was the staff friendly, helpful, and accommodating (they added a shuttle to the metro just for us, since the first was full), but the room was comfortable, clean, and perfect for our needs.

We did not park our car at the garage (we had a rental car that we dropped off at Regan Airport and then took the free shuttle back to the hotel; we used the metro for the rest of our stay), but the price seemed typical for hotels throughout D.C. While it is possible to walk to the metro (we did the walk on many occasions), having the metro shuttle available made a huge difference in the D.C.-in-July heat!

Also, we need to talk about the meals!! Not only was the breakfast more than adequate, the hotel also offers a free wine, beer, and DINNER reception on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays!! My group and I arrived on Wednesday night, so we were happy to have taken advantage of that perk.

All in all, a fabulous hotel! I'd recommend this hotel to anyone-- families and business travelers alike-- visiting the D.C. area.

Room Tip: The rooms on the upper floors have views of the Potomac.
