Enjoyed my Sep 2020 stay in the middle of deep COVID…chose to stay again this week based upon proximity to healthcare system and great previous experience….again, super stay! Room was upgraded based upon my Marriott status…super clean and quiet, comfortable and plenty of space in bathroom and bedroom. Breakfast was most excellent…buffet style. Very easy to local eats and an easy trip over from Dulles. Keep it up, I’ll gladly stay again!!!!

The staff here is simply amazing. So kind and friendly, from check in to check out. Brittany & Justo are the best. We were staying to celebrate a 30th birthday, which can be hard during these times. The staff gave excellent recommendations for entrees with the Sweetwater Tavern, and the rooms were so fresh and clean. Appreciate everything they did for us to make our short visit memorable.

I usually love Residence Inn, but very bad experience here. The dark-haired lady at the check-in must have had a bad day when we arrived, offering no additional information, no welcome as a longtime Marriott member, etc. Arriving in our first room, it smelled awful like cigarettes. An air purifying machine was put in the center of the room, so it must have been known. When we came back to the receptionist, she responded annoyed, offering no apology etc. The room itself was very minimal. The absolute minimum to be able to cram in the kitchenette, bathroom, bed, etc. The room cleaning crew had forgotten to leave a brush to clean dishes, so we had to go to the front desk to get one. I also hate the bathroom. I don’t care one bit it’s old, but there is no way avoiding waking up the apartment if you have to use the restroom during the night. The door didn’t fit in the frame so would make a noise, and flushing the toilet would probably even wake people in the next apartment. They would not offer coffee during breakfast, and also only left only 2 coffee packets in the room. The main hallway wasn’t vacuumed. It was dirty when we arrived, and the same leaves were still on the carpet when we left 4 nights later. Finally, I use to stay with Marriott for 100+ nights per year. With such low occupancy, I guess I don’t understand why an upgrade wasn’t offered. The one consolation was Courtney (I think) at the reception desk. She was super nice and helpful later on.

Absolutely clean, easy to get to local hospital....and adjacent to a quiet set of food and grocery shopping area! You have set the standard for hotel suites ! I will choose this facility again on future trips to NOVA!

I agree with a previous review that indicated this might be the worst Residence Inn. It looks and feels like a Marriott in every way except there is a general lack of attention to details. Stuck bathroom doors, odd repair jobs, crooked furniture and exit signs that appear to have been hit a few too many times. Another odd thing was the frantic breakfast. The staff running around putting stuff away and grabbing plates did not contribute to a relaxed start to the day. I think the experience could be much improved with a little bit of attention.
