I just returned home after an 8-night stay at this property. Originally, we were scheduled for a 5-night stay, but Hurricane Sandy changed that!! As my title suggests, this Residence Inn deserves a top rating because each and every member of the hotel staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. The front desk personnel, especially Liz (Asst. Gen. Mgr) -- the best! While we were guests, she always said hello and asked how we were doing, especially during the scarier weather. We also liked the night shift desk person--I wish I could remember his name. The housekeeping staff always had a smile and said hello when passing by in the hallways.

The location is just off I-66 and is conveniently located within walking distance to several restaurants (Joe's Crab Shack). With a car, it's near Whole Foods, Target, McDonalds, Best Buy, Kohls, and much more. With a car, it's about a 5-6 mile drive to the Metro Orange Line-Vienna station. It has a park 'n ride lot should you wish to go into the D.C area via public transportation. From Dulles Airport, it's a 20-25 minute drive.

I like this hotel because it's quiet and nestled away from the hustle bustle of a typical urban environment. Yet, it's within reach of the most popular area destinations. Traffic can be nuts, but that comes with the territory. Rates are incredibly reasonable.

Other plusses: clean, spacious, temp control works well, nice basic kitchen w/full-sized fridge/freezer, windows open, outdoor pool--great in summer, small but good exercise facility.

The daily complimentary breakfast is okay--when busy, it's not the most appetizing and items aren't always stocked up. They offer complimentary evening appetizers, salad, soft drinks on Tues, Weds, Thurs, and we took advantage on one occasion when it was "Comfort Food Night." They served chicken tenders, mashed potatoes, corn, and brownies. Not the worst, especially on a stormy night.

I will definitely return to this Residence Inn in the future.

This was one of the comfortable stays that I had while on I am vacation. Staff was really nice. I didn't request a ground floor room but they did change that with out a hassle. Rooms were clean and nice, also room was huge. Basically We can live there forever. Breakfast was very good. I always enjoy the breakfast at Marriott hotels. closer to DC which was really good and they were helpful showing the places to go and how to avoid the traffic etc. I would recommend this place and will stay again.......

When traveling with my family, I usually try and stay at a Residence Inn due to their amenities (e.g. kitchenette) and service. We've been very happy with Marriot and this was no exception. Rooms were very clean, service great, and the location is very convenient for local shopping. Everything from Costco to Target to Whole Foods is a 5 minute drive away.

And the online price was very good given the time of year, especially when compared with other hotels in the area. Only downside is the $150 pet fee, but most people don’t travel with their pets, so this isn't as important. I would stay here again.

We stayed on a Friday night so we didn't get to enjoy the evening meal they offer during the week, but we did eat breakfast Saturday morning. There was the usual Residence Inn breakfast of cereals, muffins, toast, yogurt, etc. as well as pancakes, scrambled eggs, & sausage. The room was immaculate and the bed very comfortable. Will definitely stay here again.

Recently stayed at this location for work. Check in was great. The attendant was nice, and check in was quick. (Don't want to put her name on here, but it's that of a fruit-so mangement knows she did a great job). In addition, every time I walked by the front desk, the other attendants were nice and helpful as well. The roof was spacious (open suite). The kitchen had a cook top, full fridge and plent room. The grill was awesom! The breakfast in the morning was ok, but you have plenty options nearby.

Overall, great job at the Res' Inn

Room Tip: It boarders off the interstate, so as long as you are on the side of front of the hotel, you don't hear anything in the rooms.
