I stayed at the hotel this past weekend for my boyfriend and i's anniversary (also just to get away) . I live in the dc area so I was extremely scared of the drive and if the location would even be feasible for us. Although it was just a little over a 30min drive I would have to say my...

We (two parents and three teen aged kids) traveled to the DC Area for one final family vacation before sending our son off to Basic Training....

The bed was very comfortable :). Free b'fast daily & evening snacks/lite dinner included on select evenings Nice to have a fridge. We had a 2 BR/2bath suite. Very clean and staff was friendly.

We stayed for a good price in a one-bedroom suite. We chose the hotel for its location, which is close enough to the friends we visited. Also, it's a relatively quick drive to the Dunn Loring Metro station (too far to walk & no hotel shuttle). The bedroom area of our suite held a very bouncy queen-size bed. The mattress...

Pretty standard-issue Residence Inn. A bit dated, but amenable. Comp breakfast and evening "socials" were respectable. Everything right out of the Marriott mid-range play book, which generally means convenience and consistency. Location is very convenient, with close access to Capitol Beltway (495), Dulles Access Road (267), I-66, and Route 50. Equally convenient to DC, airports, or local tech & defense...
