I am writing this review because I love this hotel, and I received the best service from someone. First of all I loved the room. It was spacious, and had a full kitchen and large refrigerator/freezer. There was a microwave, stovetop, even a dishwasher and a full set of dishes!

We stayed here on a weekend evening. The hotel was fine, but I wasn't very impressed compared to other Residence Inns I have visited. Next time I am in the area, I will choose another hotel if available. This one was booked on points, so I didn't mind that much! The Pros: Nice, convenient location near many restaurants and close...

My wife and I were in the DC area for just a couple days and wanted to stay on the 495 loop. This location and hotel was perfect. It was right on the exit and was close enough to walk to the metro. Not so close for everyone but the hotel has a shuttle for those who would rather not...

I have stayed at this hotel a couple of times in the past. On this most recent trip we booked a two bedroom suite. It was actually the only hotel in the area I could find that offered two bedroom suites and I have always enjoyed this hotel. The lobby and check-in desk area had been renovated since my last...

We stayed here while traveling around the Virgina/ Washington DC area. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The staff was pleasant and very helpful. The breakfast was good, fairly basic. Just a short distance to the Metro.

We stayed for one night on the weekend at a very reasonable price. This place is aging gracefully, but no surprises. The staff was nice and upbeat. The breakfast was as expected and the service person was pleasant. It is an easy drive to shopping and dining-- 2 minutes.
