I stayed at this hotel for several months while working in the area. The lobby has been renovated so it’s quite nice. The bed was comfortable, everything worked and once I was inside my room, I couldn’t hear anyone in the rooms around me which I really appreciate. The room, however, could use a renovation. The room I was in...

Great stay at this Mariott. So many perks; outdoor pool with lifeguard, full breakfast and a Taco dinner which my grandsons loved. Clean rooms in our suite fully furnished. Near DC and Arlington, Va. Great location.

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.

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...
