Residence Inn Arlington Rosslyn
Travel Blogs from Arlington
Another day full of walking. We walked over to see Georgetown in the morning, which was a nice walk, but we discovered that the law school is located at another campus on the other side of town. The main Georgetown campus is really nice though. We walked around the streets in Georgetown and the girls went shopping on M Street, which is basically …
Well, another great day has come and gone. And I am completely in love with DC! I woke up early this morning to use the hotel's exercise room (two weeks sitting in a car and eating southern cooking has started to take its toll), which was a great start to the day. It's amazing how much better I always feel after exercising. We enjoyed a very nice …
Wow, what a day. It was crazy, frustrating, awesome, and hilarious all at the same time. In the morning after breakfast we went to Monticello, the home that Thomas Jefferson built. Actually, it was more of an estate, because the grounds were huge. The house was set up on top of a hill that overlooked the 5,000 acres that Jefferson owned. It was so …

Historical Traveler Reviews Residence Inn Arlington Rosslyn
Great hotel and location
Or group of bicyclists and non bicyclists had 5 rooms at this Residence Inn and we were not disappointed. The hotel staff was very accomodating in working with us to overcome the only minor hitch in our stay. The rooms were well furnished, large and very comfortable. The breakfast served was exceptional with enough variety, hot and cold food for everyone's preference. The location cannot be beat whether one chooses to take the Metro (2 blocks) or bike trails (3 blocks). When we chose not to eat in DC there were enough choices within walking distance to appease everyone. Pricing varies and you can occassionally pick up a true bargin. Otherwise prices are comparable to others in the Arlington area and less than in DC. We definitely will return.
Very pleasant stay.....great location
We stayed at the Residence Inn for a long weekend. We were quite pleased with the hotel. It is not a flashy hotel, but is very clean and was more than adequate for our stay.
Affordable weekend rate
Great breakfast buffet: eggs, biscuits 'n gravy, sausage patties, muffins, cereal...etc.
Convenient location: Metro stop very close, several attractions are close
Room were spacious and clean
Convenient parking below the building
Late night cookies were outstanding
Area not very lively on weekends....basically a business district
Not any fancy amenities
$10 per day parking (may be standard for the area??)
Overall, we were very happy with our stay
We arrived on Thursday night, Dec 1 and checked out on Monday, Dec 5, 2005. We had a great AAA/CAA rate of $104 per night for a one bedroom suite which we booked at the Marriott site. Parking in the garage underneath the hotel was extra at $10/day. The nice thing about booking directly at Marriott instead of one of the famous online sites (travelocity, orbitz, expedia etc.) is that they don't charge your credit card up front and that you can cancel up to 24 hours before the arrival date. Marriott also guarantees the best rate, which I found to be true by checking the 3rd party sites.
Very good value.
We stayed at the Residence Inn Rosslyn over the weekend. It was great. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The staff was excepitonell friendly and helpful. The area around the hotel is tidy but boring. The subway station is a ten minute walk away, ten minutes by tube and you're in the heart of D.C. Minuses: the hotel is not easy to find and the breakfast is lousy and the breakfast room is overcrowded. But all told, at least on weekends you'll get a real good value here particularly when you're with a group of three or four.
Very nice at Rosslyn Residence Inn
Our studio unit was very very clean, exceptionally large, very helpful front reception service. Location was also very good, close to Metro (3 blocks), stores, shops, restaurants. We were offered hot breakfast and some evening buffets (3 days a week). Would definitely stay there again. Good value with our senior discount. Parking garage was extra $10 per nite.
Will stay again
Good location. Lots of restaurants within walking distance.
Breakfast buffet is good.
It would be better if they have swimming pool and whirlpool.
It was a little confusing to find the place according to map quest.
Very Good Hotel and Location
We stayed for a long weekend while touring downtown DC. We flew into Dulles Airport and hopped on the Metro Bus (3$) which delivered us to the Rosslyn Metro Stop. The hotel is a couple of blocks walking from the Metro Stop, but it seemed like a really short walk. The hotel itself was clean and the free breakfast really starts a day off right. There is a grocery store close by (even closer than the Metro) and you can actually do your own cooking in the full kitchen of your room, if you want. We would definitely stay there again.
Even though the weather was horrific, we were lucky to have the Residence Inn to come home to each evening. The staff was great especially the morning desk receptionist who was always happy and totally accomodating. The cost of the room was high since we were there midweek, but that is normal for DC. This place would be an absolute steal if you could get the weeekend rates. One word of caution, you must like to walk if you stay here. Metro is only 2 blocks and Georgetown a 20 minute walk over the Key Bridge. Nice morning breakfast and evening treats. Rooms clean and quiet which was important since we were ther during Easter BReak and there were noisy Middle schoolers all over the city. Excellent shopping just a metro ride away at Pentagon City and of course in Georgetown. Be careful about taxi service to hotel. We were totally ripped off an arrival as it cost $30 for taxi from airport. The wonderful morning receptionist got us a private towncar for $15 for our airport return!!!
OK, but with some problems
I stayed for nearly a month, but mostly because of necessity. The hotel was nice because of convenience and the free food several days a week.
However, the AC/Heating unit was hard to regulate, the rooms often had a greasy or tobacco smell (my room was designated as non-smoking), and the walls were fairly thin, so it was easy to hear one's neighbors.
Overall, I am not sure Ill be returning here again.
Helpful, friendly, conscientious staff made this a pleasant place to return to each night. Only two blocks to Metro, restaurants and grocery store.
