“Love, Love, Love!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2014

We decided on this hotel based on reviews posted by other "tripadvisors" and I am so glad we did! Residence Inn Arlington Capital View is a great hotel - from checking in to checking out, our stay was wonderful.

The girl that checked us in was more than welcoming and suggested a couple of different restaurants to try close by. Our room was so clean; it didn't even feel like a hotel! Having the kitchenette was a lifesaver! The fully stocked kitchenette was super convenient.

The breakfast was amazing! It had everything from your simple continental breakfast to waffles, biscuits and gravy, and French toast. There was something for everyone! On our last day, we went down to breakfast a little late and there was still plenty of hot, warm, fresh food! The staff was constantly restocking which showed how much they truly care about their guests.

Residence Inn Arlington Capital View is super close to the airport, which was nice after a long day of traveling. There is a shuttle that takes you to and from the airport along with to and from the metro. If you like to walk, the metro station isn’t too long of a walk.

About a block down from the hotel is a little Italian place called Bozelli's. Probably the best pizza I have ever had. If you a looking for something a bit nicer, there is a McCormick and Schmick's down the road. Also, there is a Buffalo Wild Wings, Jimmy Johns, California Tortilla, etc. all within walking distance.

There is a little store inside the hotel that has everything from wine to ice cream. The store had a great selection of items. I started getting sick towards the end of my trip so I went to the little store to get some flu medicine and there wasn't any. My ONLY recommendation is for DayQuil, or an equivalent, be sold. There was plenty of NyQuil; however DayQuil would have been nice. Now, I completely understand that the hotel might have been out of DayQuil and if that's the case ignore this part of my post. :)

This hotel is perfect. Everything from the location to the cleanliness is wonderful. I will definitely choose this hotel for my next visit to DC.

I would recommend this hotel to anything traveling to this area!!!

Marriott has two properties sharing the same city block--Residence Inn and Renaissance, and they both still have a "newness" factor. (Courtyard by Marriott is just across the street.)

The Residence Inn is very clean and serviceable. The lobby and breakfast areas are designed well and very attractive. The health center shared by the two hotels is also clean and highly functional. (Indoor pool too!)

We arrived in the area after dark, planning an early flight out of Reagan-National the following morning, so I did not explore the neighborhood--if you can call it that. Crystal City has been one of my least favorites parts of the Washington DC area for a long time. The architects of the 1970's apparently went to the Russian school of building/city planning, because it seems devoid of human personality from some vantage points.

- Excellent breakfast (complimentary at Residence Inn).
- Excellent dinner at Socci - the Renaissance open-kitchen restaurant (expensive).
- Parking is available. We chose cheapairportparking.org--valet parking at a better rate than what is typical for an airport. (The garage is in the Renaissance/Residence building.)
- Good shuttle service to Reagan. Service also through Crystal City to the Metro station.

This Residence Inn has a goal of exceeding all expectations! Travel a lot and have never seen anything like it. The front desk was exceptional with its customer service and informed me of free dinner. I was a little skeptical but decided to check it out. Wow! There was stuffed peppers with pasta and a vegetable medley. The Caesar salad was excellent and the chicken noodle soup was delicious! There was also an assortment of cookies and yummy pound cake. Beer and wine also. All free! The rooms are fantastic and then there is the traditional breakfast in the morning with a ton of extras. This place is amazing! Look no further if you are staying in the DC area!

A thoroughly competent hotel with well appointed rooms. My stay there was very pleasant-very friendly staff, and WiFi that actually works fast in the rooms. Although it it near National airport and although my room faced the runway, aircraft noise was not noticeable. It is not a walk-about hotel though..you will need a car to get around or walk several blocks north to get the train at Crystal City. Illy cofee shop next door in the Renaissance has fantastic coffee.

We booked this hotel a.s it was close to Ronald Regan Airport and we were driving South the following day.

We had quite a long wait for the complimentary shuttle to the hotel, but once we had overcome that hurdle, we were pleased that we had chosen the hotel.

The room was clean and comfortable, with a kitchenette area, and a lounge space. Bed was very comfortable.

We stayed on a Monday night, and went to the complimentary Social Evening. The food was OK (can't remember the theme for the evening meal) and there was a glass of wine also included. Breakfast the following morning was also included in the price, so although the hotel seemed pricey, overall it was very good value for money given the area it's in.

We would stay in this hotel again for its location and value.

Thank you for choosing the Residence Inn Arlington Capital View for the value and its location. As you are already aware, finding such a hotel in the DC area is no easy task. So when you come across a hotel that provides a clean, well-appointed guest room, with so many complimentary features such as Wi-Fi, breakfast, dinner (Monday - Wednesday), coupled with friendly guest service and excellent ratings on TripAdvisor, you know you've found a 'go-to" hotel. We hope you will keep us at the top of your list for your next visit to the DC area.

My husband needed a getaway and chose to venture to the DC area. I was lucky enough to find a great deal with this hotel and was not at all disappointed. After battling I-95 traffic, we were greeted with the warm and friendly staff during check-in. The room was spacious, warm, and has a great floor plan. We took advantage of the mini bus to Metro that stops every 20 minutes. The breakfast is delicious and has something for everyone! I highly recommend this hotel with free wifi and fitness center with indoor pool!

Enough cannot be said about how perfect this hotel is. The facilities and rooms are very well kept and comfortable. The price exceptional for the amenities. Having stayed at many hotels that offer a free breakfast I can honestly say this is one of the best. The hot food varies every day and very good. It's pretty busy in the morning but there's always a place to sit and the staff are constantly refilling each station and keeping things clean and tidy.

During our visit my son had some health issues and the staff were more than responsive to our needs and went out of their way to inquire about how my son was doing. Truly a gold star for service from everyone and at every time of day.

An unexpected bonus was being able to sit at the breakfast area anytime of day. When traveling with a large family it's hard to find a place where everyone can congregate and the breakfast area provided us with a great location to have takeout lunch (go to kebab place down street). The pool even had a life guard.

Would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone and cannot wait to return.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that faces airport.
