We stay at Marriott properties all the time and were disappointed with this one. We did find an online room rate special and are wondering if when you are lucky to get a "special deal" they give you a room that is not the greatest. We did complain and found that even though the sign in the lobby says the...

We recently had a large group of out of town guests visiting Northern Virginia for a retirement celebration. Some chose to stay at the Residence Inn in Merrifield VA. Great choice. Our guests stayed in a spacious, clean, two bedroom suite with two baths. Some of the furnishings are a little dated but still in good shape. Staff is friendly...

I stayed at the Residence Inn for about a week while transitioning to my new home. Although it was a chaotic time, living out of suitcases, the Residence Inn was a comfortable, clean place to call home for a period of time. The 2-bedroom suite was spacious with easily enough room for my family. The hotel has a pool, but...

Stayed here for four nights during a trip to see the Smithsonian museums. Check in was very fast. Room was a bit dated, but clean. Breakfast was excellent and also had the supper on Monday night, a nice added feature. Pool was closed until May 2015. Aside from the property being a bit dated, was very pleased with the staff...

We stayed here for the weekend. Convenient to several local restaurants "Sweetwater Tavern" in the shopping center a couple of blocks away is very good. Room was clean and comfortable. Nice having the refrigerator and microwave, tall stools at the counter. Not all the tv stations worked that were on the 'list' but not that important to us. Would rather...

Situated just outside the Beltway, close to Rt 50, and off Gallows Rd, this Residence Inn provided all the conveniences we wanted to have while visiting Washington DC and Northern Virginia. It is only 0.7 miles away from the Dunn Loring Metro Station, about 3 miles away from Tyson's Corner, and within walking distance from new developments that are taking...

I stayed at this hotel on business for a few nights, and it was an average stay. I was impressed with the size of the room - it was very spacious. It was also very clean. However, the breakfast in the morning was poor-tasting. There was a lot of variety, but the eggs tasted like they had grits mixed in...

We were very pleased with our recent 2 night stay. Hot Breakfast was actually hot, with lots of choices like scrambled eggs, waffles, hard-boiled eggs, cereal, fresh fruit bread/bagles etc. Our room was clean, and roomy for a studio suite. Some of the TV stations didn't come in well, but was quickly resolved by a call to the front desk...

When we arrived we were immediately upgraded to a 2 bedroom suite, which was perfect for us after a long car ride. The room was huge, complete with a full kitchen. The room was very clean.

Our stay at this Residence Inn was brief - one night over the weekend, and that night was about as much time as I'd want to spend on the premises. We arrived during the morning, and to the management's credit, they were able to get us into our two-bedroom suite earlier than the usual check-in time. We spent a few...
