Best bang for your buck

Everything is as advertised. The shuttles are never on time and always full or they just dont want to stop. No pool is rediculous, especially in the summer. Friendly staff

Help! I can't get into my room!

We generally enjoyed our stay. The only major problem was that our room keys didn't work, even when replaced three times! One of the times we tried to get in our room, security had to be called to let us in because even the front desk key didn't work! What a pain! However the hotel had a wonderful FREE happy hour which made us happy! From 6 to 7:30 PM , free wine and beer were offered along with delicious free appetizers. Also the morning breakfast buffet was quite good.

Nice hotel

Hotel was nice but issues with the heater unit not working when it is 30 degrees outside. Family switched rooms but staff moved us to a smaller room which was disappointing and room was not sound proof.

Excellent stay

The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was really nice and comfortable. It was a great experience overall. The only drawback is that it is quite far from all the monuments. But we didn't mind, we like to walk. The bike system is a good way to get around, and you can use the mount Vernon trail to get to the monuments.

Residence Inn

Pros: The staff. They couldn't have been nicer.
Cons: The bed. Too hard for me.
Location: Close to very nice restaurants, convenient shuttle to the Metro to get to DC.
Great hotel everyone was attentive and polite. There was a kitchen in the room but I would prefer a restaurant in the hotel.

Best value ever

Pros: Suite, refrig, microwave, built-in electric stove, included breakfast, free shuttle to metro-stop
Cons: TV service has no channel guide ... you can see what channel you are viewing, but there is no way to find out what programs are on.
Location: Few small stores 1/4 mile away, but no major shopping within walking distance. 1 Restaurant next door. DC is ~ 45 min away (shuttle metro ride)
This facility gave us the best experience (in a hotel) we have ever had, given the price we paid. Now, you can find places to stay with marble floors in the bathroom and the plushest Egyptian cotton towels elsewhere, at 3 - 4 times the price, but they usually don't include a full size refrig, microwave, built-in electric stove-top, dishes and tableware, a roll of paper towels, and a kitchen sink. Also included was a breakfast buffet (hot and cold items) and (VERY IMPORTANT to us) a free bus shuttle ride to the nearest DC metro train stop (about a 5 min ride, runs ~ every 20 min until 11PM - the hotel does not mention this in their list of amenities/services, but they should.) The room was clean, sheets/towels were fine. We were on the top floor, so outside noise was not an issue (though I think it is probably not an issue even on the lowest floors) (Since we did not have marble floors in the bathroom and plush Egyptian cotton towels, I suppose that a more accurate overall rating might be 4.85, but that is being kind of picayune.)

Great stay

We found the Residence Inn Arlington very comfortable and accomodating. The breakfast buffet had a nice selection. The breakfast room staff were all very courteous and kept the area well-stocked and neat. Front desk staff were helpful and friendly.

Excellent option for a short weekend

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, Quiet
We stayed for a Saturday and Sunday night and thought that this was one of the nicest places that we have ever stayed. The staff was absolutely wonderful and most welcoming. Suites were just what we needed after a long day of exploring D.C. Buffet breakfast was full of options for everyone's taste. Shuttle to the Metro station was very quick and we only had to wait a few minutes. Will stay here again when we come back to the D.C. area.
