Recent guest reviews

Stayed here for one night with 2 of my sons. Good shower water pressure, nice breakfast, comfortable beds and good location. Would definitely stay here again. Hotel a little hard to find and smaller than most residence inns I've stayed in but staff very friendly and there was plenty of parking.

As you may know, this is the closest spot you can stay and catch the Washington Metro. The Red Line Train. They don't have a shuttle, but it is very easy to drive to and has plenty of parking. The hotel is clean and the comp breakfst is not bad. Fresh fruits and plenty of coffee. Also, there is a hearty hot meal always. The tables are always kept clean with a staff that is always cleaning up. There is a comp newspaper, too. Plenty of good parking and easy room entry. There is a luggage trolley at every entrance. The water is hot with good water pressure. The room service is very good. One negative is that the carpets in the room should be replaced, at least in my room. But all and all, a very nice place in a nice area.

When you are traveling for a kids sports tournament it is nice to have a clean, spacious room with some flexibility on check in/out times. Had everything we needed from early breakfast to late checkout. Good experience.

Stayed here for 2 nights on business. My room was attractive and spotlessly clean, the staff was friendly and helpful and went above the call of duty to make my stay comfortable and our meetings held in their conference room pleasant. I would definitely stay here again!

We were supposed to stay here 2 nights to visit family. But after encountering some issues with the property, we sadly had to check out right away. When we checked in, the lady at the front desk was very nice and gave us 2 studios up on the 3rd floor of Building B. When we went into the building, I was greeted by a musty smell and was very dated. When we got up to the rooms we were greeted by a strong perfume/chemical smell. We soon had to check out and I would not recommend this hotel to anyone who has allergies.

This hotel is an average Residence Inn. It definitely needs some update overall. The faucet in our shower, it only turns half way, and the water is not very hot. You feel very cold after took the shower. The counter top are extremely low. Good for my kids but not for adult. Bathroom is very small. Breakfast was ok. I am not sure I will stay here again!

We booked a 2 bedroom suite and it was a great size. The rooms were clean. Some of the furniture could have used updating. There was a full kitchen. They had a nice large breakfast and even food at dinner time in the lobby. The location was about a 5 minute walk to Washingtonian center restaurants and shops. I would stay here again. No indoor pool.

Comfortable suite and super clean! I melted into the pillows! I went for an overnight trip to visit a few family members. There was a pull out sofa in the living room area which was great for some of my family members. Overall enjoyable stay. The breakfast was great (especially those waffles!) Definitely recommend

This was an older Residence Inn with several separate buildings. Everyone had to walk outside to get to breakfast on a crisp, fall day. It is a 1/2 mile walk to the shops, restaurants, entertainment, and other hotels of the Rio complex. The room was large with a separate sleeping area. The room was updated since our last visit a few years ago. Plenty of desk space and outlets.

Stayed two nights. Check in was difficult. We couldn't figure out which building was check in. There are several buildings. Once we located check in, the reception appears gloomy. Is it the lighting and decor?! Upon entering our building where our room was, the hallway again, appears dark/gloomy and long! It's not an inviting feeling! Breakfast is ok. We took it to our room, even though we have to go outside to get to breakfast in another building. The room itself, could do with an upgrade. Large studio style, open vanity, enclosed bathroom. Furniture appears drab, but functional. Pillows unusually hard, for Marriott! I usually love their soft fluffy pillows! Biggest peeve, DO NOT STAY IN ROOM 311 (my fault for forgetting to request "room not near elevator")! 311 IS AT THE BACK OF ELEVATOR! I was jet lagged when we checked in, and didn't notice. The horrendous noise that will wake you out of a deep sleep at 5 AM - IS THE WORSE! A guest on Residence Inn (RI) website said in their review- "the room should be condemned." Unfortunately, they didn't mention which room. I bet it backed an elevator! Thankfully, RI gave us another room. But it took 4 attempts back and forth to reception to find out the 2nd room had a faulty room door. So we were given a 3rd choice. Thankfully, we only endured one more night. Our original plan was to stay next door, at Marriott's Springhill Suites, where we've stayed before. Springhill decor and rooms are so inviting! Springhill was sold out, the first 2 nights of our stay. We eventually transferred to Springhill. Take a stroll next door to Springhill Suites to compare! Marriott needs to upgrade RI! Stay tuned on review of Springhill Suites...
