Perfect, just outside of DC, location. Quick one-mile walk to the Metro. Tons of great bars/restaurants in the surrounding area. And, just across the street is the Kettler Capitals' Ice Facility if you want to see the best team in the NHL up close and personal. Staff is always top notch, very friendly and accommodating. Rooms are very spacious and...

Stayed in a 1 bed studio for 3 nights for a work visit. Typical residence inn amenities. Quality was nicer than the Hilton Arlington which is around the corner. Room felt updated and fresh. Plenty of food options right out the door. The mall (which is currently under construction) is only a block away. A little bit of a hike...

This Residence Inn has very good service, extremely palatable food, and many good restaurant options within a couple of blocks of a broad variety for nearly any preference. It is right next to a mall in case you forget anything on your trip or just like to shop in your spare time. The rooms are in great shape and are...

This hotel is in an area with government administrative buildings, that's probably why a lot of people stay there. The price is high considering the quality. Odd numbered rooms look right into the windows of DARPA, try to get an even numbered room. Rooms are large and the two 1BR suites I stayed in had plenty of space. The living...

This property seems a step up from the typical Residence Inn. The rooms are elegant and comfortable, the lobby area stylish. Cleanliness and convenienve leave nothing to be desired. The free breakfast was exceptionally good and well assorted. Toppings for oatmeal or waffles included nearly whole (vs. crushed) walnuts and chocolate chips in addition to the usual raisins and brown...

This might be the best Residence Inn I have ever stayed in. I travel about 60 nights a year and almost exclusively stay in Marriott properties. Of all of the Residence Inns I've stayed, this one is one of the best. Our room was spacious, clean, and had a great view. Even though it was 5 miles away, we could...

We stayed here while visiting family over the holidays. Nice rooms, with separate bedroom and kitchenette- liked the gym and it is in a really great location for dining, shopping and sight seeing. Our daughter slept on the pull out sofa and said it was comfortable.

Was here for longish 3-week stay as part of job move. I cannot find any substantial point of weakness in this property. It is clean, well staffed, and the staff are extremely professional, friendly and accommodating. The rooms and corridors and very clean, and the gym is well equipped and open 24 hours, which comes in handy. The breakfast is...

We stayed here from day after xmas to NYE. Perfect place for family. With small kitchen that had almost everything we needed, especially the freezer/fridge and dishwasher. Breakfast buffet had plenty of choices. Also free drinks and snacks in the evenings. Pool is indoor but small. Limited hours but with lifeguard. Close to lots of dinner and sandwich places. And...

We spent four nights at the Residence Inn in Ballston and could not be any more pleased with the stay. The hotel is very well maintained and appointed. I enjoyed the fitness area in peace everyday (at 6:00 AM) which was great. Breakfast was not fantastic, but sufficient for the kids. There were several great spots close by (less than...
