I think this hotel has been open for only two days before I arrived, and it felt like it! It's quite possible I was the first person ever to use this hotel room: everything felt crisp, the shower was sparkling with new tiles, and there were no batteries yet in the TV remote control (a previous occupant would likely have noticed)...

The new hotel is literally adjacent to DARPA, so I imagine lots of government-related business travelers will want to stay here, just to feel the "new car smell" of the hotel...

Staff were friendly and eager to please. The hotel was not crowded at all, as they're probably just getting started, so there were multiple people on hand to help with any request.

The breakfast was fine, nothing special, just what's typical of these kinds of hotels: waffle maker, some eggs, fruit, yogurt, muffins, etc.

I liked the free wifi, it worked well. Nice TV in the room as well, once the batteries were added to the remote (large flat screen, HBO, etc.). The room was in came with a small kitchen in it, didn't use it but I can see this being convenient. Beds and pillows were great, again, nice and new. Fan/air was loud but I just turned it off and was comfortable.

If you're looking for a Residence Inn type hotel in this area of Arlington, I can't see why you want to stay at a different one than this one...
