Took my teenage daughter to D.C. again this summer - did the same two years ago also. We stayed here both visits. Close to the Metro, clean, spacious suite, outdoor pool & spa, decent breakfasts, relatively inexpensive. Perfect for a family or other visitors to the area.

stayed here September 21st for 3 nights in a very spacious 2 bedroom suite which is basically a two bedroom, two bathroom apartment with a full kitchen. very quiet rooms, friendly and really helpful front office and waitering staff. very good breakfast, although very busy at peak times. coin operated laundry and plenty of free parking. 15 minute walk to the Metro, and 1 minute from the I-495, route 50 intersection. 5 minutes drive from Tysons Corner, and 20 minutes to Potomac Mills Mall. 25 minutes to Dulles airport. Kitchen cabinets and furniture a little dated, but in very good condition. We paid US$ 125.00 per night on the wkd AAA rate. Excellent value for size of rooms, and facilities. pool and basketball court, gas BBQ for cook-outs and tiny exercise room. Highly recommend this Residence Inn to families (lots staying when we were there) and people wanting spacious rooms and free parking. Housekeeping staff efficient and kept the room clean and freshly stocked with coffee etcetera

Room Tip: High floors get a view over the tree tops, laundry if very busy during the breakfast rush, underground garage has plenty of pakring but you need your room key to open the door.

We stayed here over the Labor day weekend, in a 2 bed suite with our teenage daughters. I would highly recommend it. It is not a particularly plush hotel, and not done to the newest Residence Inn style, but it was very comfortable. It is a large hotel and we were in a room way down at the bottom of a long corridor, but even so we felt at home. We did not hear any other guests.
The breakfast was fine, fairly typical fare. The pool was quite small, but was set in a pleasant courtyard. Our daughters enjoyed it. The location of the hotel was great, right behind a small strip mall with a few restaurants, a Starbucks and a CVS. It was an easy drive to everywhere we wanted to go.
We took our lives in our hands and walked (we're British) to the Sweetwater Tavern just across the street, but I wouldn't recommend walking again! It was a scary and hairy experience crossing the road with no pedestrian crossing. Sweetwater Tavern itself was simply great, the best meal we had all holiday.
We got a fantastic deal for the hotel, which was the deciding factor for us on this stay, but I would not hesitate to recommend it, or to stay here again. It was great.

My extended family and I stayed at this property and had 5 rooms. The best features of this hotel were a generous buffet breakfast with ample seating, free parking, and proximity to a shopping center with numerous restaurants, CVS, etc. If you are in good shape, you can leave your car at the hotel and walk about a mile to the Metro station.

Large, sprawling (just under 160 suites), 4-story Residence Inn (RI), surrounding lovely courtyard & outdoor pool. Courtyard tables & chairs are pleasant spot for eating breakfast or dinner outside in nice weather.  Overall pleasant environment.

Largest TV (42 inches – 1 meter) I’ve ever seen in RI living room – not complaining, just noting. (After becoming accustomed to it, other TVs seem puny.)

Typical older, yet comfortable, RI accommodations:

• Free internet/WiFi.

• Two computers & printer to print documents & boarding passes.

• Small exercise room with working treadmills, ellipticals, weights.

• Rows of working washers ($2) & dryers ($2) in 1st floor guest laundry that seemed continually in use by guests. (Had to keep checking for available washer.)

• Free on-site self-parking in: above ground lot & secured underground garage.

• Surprisingly *quiet* room considering proximity (& convenience) to highways:
 -- Beltway (I-495)
 -- Route 50
 -- Gallows Rd.(650)
 -- I-66

Approximate Drive Times (Depending on Traffic):

• 5 min. -- 1.5 miles (2.4 km) -- to Dunn Loring-Merrifield metro station (orange line) on 2700 Gallows Rd. (Vienna, VA); $4.75 all day parking space at metro station.

• 15-min. -- 4.1 mi. (6.6 km) -- to Tysons Corner.

• 25-min. -- 12.5 mi. (20 km) -- to DC Washington Mall, Smithsonian Museums, Memorials, Sightseeing.

• 30-min. -- 21 mi. (34 km) -- Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD); no RI shuttle.

• 30-min. -- 15 mi. (24 km) -- Washington National Airport (DCA); no RI shuttle.

Budget Eating & Shopping:

• Standard RI breakfasts (hot & cold items) with some healthy options & evening fare (Mon., Tue., Wed.) served in gatehouse. (Hoped for better quality meals, which are served at other RIs & Homewoods; always hope for Greek yogurt, whole grain breads, & greater assortment of fresh fruit.) *Convenient* if you haven't time to prepare your own meals.

• For evenings when food isn’t served, brief walk or drive to numerous nearby eateries; call-in order & pick up on your way home from day’s activities.

• If you’ve time/ inclination, food shop & prepare your own meals in furnished kitchenette. Approx. 10-minute drive (depending on traffic) to 2 groceries in Falls Church, VA (each about 2.2 miles (3.5 km)):
  --  Safeway  on 7397 Lee Highway
  --  Giant  on 7235 Arlington Boulevard

Standard, good quality RI -- clean & comfortable -- for short- or long-stay whether traveling with family, as a couple, or alone on business.
