This hotel was a good location and the property is clean, rooms are nice. As a frequent business traveler, sometimes I like to have more than just the standard hotel room...but not when it's summer vacation time and there are many families. I have nothing against traveling families (I did that at one point too), but for a business trip...

Good Afternoon, First of all thank you for staying with us during your travel, however it's disapointing to hear that you did not enjoy stay with us because of the noise level. I understand how difficult must have been for you to have work to complete with an elevated noise level outside your door and for that we are sorry....

This Residence Inn is in a convenient location as it is in walking distance to several nice restaurants. It is a bit hard to find as it is back off the road, but overall it is in a good location with easy freeway access. The suite I stayed in was nice & clean, and a nice size. My only complaint...

best Residence Inn I have found in DC area. The difference? This property is "owned" & operated by Marriott. When Marriott switched to a franchise business model the experience started declining…. not matching promise of the brand. It makes all the difference…. franchise owned Marriott properties can be hit and miss. So suggest when making a reservation- ask if it...

Had a good stay at this Residence Inn, with location very convenient to work and restaurants. Several choices of fast food are within walking distance, with many choices a short drive away. Note that my GPS (and apparently others) had a very difficult time finding this hotel. I'd suggest maybe programming in the Crab Shack which is near by and...

This Residence Inn is particularly in a great location. It’s right next to a huge shopping mall, which makes your stay extra convenient. The staff is friendly and the rooms are clean. If you are looking for a large pool, you won’t find it here. Also, the hotel sits on a sloped hill in which a major freeway runs behind....

We stayed there for two nights right after the new year. The first thing that hit us when we walked into the room was that the room at some point had been a smoking room.

This complex consists of several detached buildings. The building that housed our hotel room absolutely reeked and the room itself was way over sanitized to mask the nasty smell. Had we not checked-in late and exhausted, we would've demanded another room. Also, we were charged a hefty charge for 1 dog…this was neither explained during the reservation or check-in process....
