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...

This is a top notch hotel at a reasonable price. Clean and almost elegant. Worthy of a big city but with a small town charm. Lobby was expansive but warm and the guest rooms are large with comfortable beds and large baths. We would return over and over and would recommend highly to anyone traveling to the DC area.

The perfect solution for our last minute Thanksgiving trip to Arlington to visit family. The rooms are generously sized. And the pullout bed allowed us to have a surprise sleepover for our 5-year old grandson! The breakfast buffet is an added bonus. Even on the run, we could grab a bagel or oatmeal, some fresh fruit and hot coffee for...

I thought this hotel was a stunningly good value. It is a five to ten minute walk to two metro stations and there are places to eat close by. My room was large and had a small kitchenette and a nice work space with a serious chair. There was a large bathroom with a shower, but no tub. Breakfast was...

I stayed here for four nights while attending meetings at a nearby Department of Defense facility. The hotel is well run and everything was clean and comfortable. The room was quiet. Most of the people staying here are staying for business so it is a pretty quiet group. The evening receptions were very good with better than average free beer...

The room was clean and the employees are responsive and friendly. The hot breakfast in the morning was OK; eggs bagels waffles sausages... prefer to have more seating. They have their own parking garage that I paid 16 for my entire 3 night stay.

We rented a quiet and spacious one bedroom room for two nights over Veterans Day weekend. It was HUGE. A full kitchen, a small dinette, a pull out sleeper sofa, a separate closed off bedroom and a bathroom.
