I'm not sure how old the hotel is but it feels brand new. The staff is awesome, just extra friendly and helpful. Our family of 5 stayed in a 2 bedroom suite and it worked great. It was nice to have common space, even with a 2 night stay. Breakfast was fine, above avg for a free breakfast. We ate outside on the patio and it was delightful. We ran outside and didn't use the gym, but it's in 2 rooms and is above avg for a hotel like this.

My only criticism is that the building likely needs another elevator, as we often had to wait a bit. Hard to fix that now.

Room Tip: 2 room suite is more expensive than two 1 room suites but it has 2 queen beds in one room and we were all together

New property. Great stay. Too few elevators.

Close to ballston mall (mall sucks) and many bars and restaurants. Great location. Friendly staff. Only complaint in slow elevators/lack of enough elevators. Otherwise, great stay!

We stay near DC for a few weeks every summer and had stayed at another extended stay hotel for 8 years. We switched to this new one in Arlington and are happy we did.The rooms are well decorated and the kitchen well stocked. Free wifi, large screen TVs, good gym and decent pool make it perfect for a longer stay. The breakfast bar is super, it has hot foods like eggs, sausage, hash browns, oatmeal and a make your own waffle bar with blueberries, cherry sauce, chocolate chips etc. Hotel is near a mall with good shopping options and lots of great restaurants are nearby.

Room Tip: Ask for view of DC. We could see the Washington Monument and Capital Building from our room on 10th floor.

We flew into DCA and stayed here two nights. It's about a 6-10 minute walk from the hotel to the nearest Metro stop, although it's about a 30 minute Metro ride from the airport, and requires a connection. The staff is outstanding -- friendly, alert and professional; the common areas are tidy and attractive; our room was clean and spacious. On the first night, the vent was loudly blowing strong gusts of cold air, and when we adjusted the thermostat we could only get it to blow warm air. The second night it was fine, though. The breakfast offerings were varied and plentiful, and the breakfast area was ample. Free WiFi. Overall it was a very good experience, and we would not hesitate to recommend it.

We have stayed here often on our visits to Northern Virginia and DC. It close to a Metro and an easy Uber or cab ride to almost anywhere we need to go in the area. The rooms are always clean and the suites are like small apartments. Comfortable and relaxing. You can't beat the price although you don't give up very much for the reasonable cost. The service is wonderful with people working there who seem to actually like their jobs and their guests. The breakfast is always first rate and comes with the room - not your typical cold scrambled egg and dry muffin buffet. Nothing seems lacking at this quality hotel. It is our "go to" hotel when I am staying in the area.
