We spent 6 days here with our 8 year old granddaughter and went into DC everyday to sight see. The ride isn't bad if you go after rush hour. The hotel is clean and modern, room was comfy and always well stocked. The staff from the front desk, breakfast staff, housekeeping, etc could not have been nicer or more accommodating.... More

After 10 hectic days in DC, needed a calm place in the area for a family reunion. Residence Inn was quiet, relaxing and well located. We were in the back, some distance from a low rise office building that was totally silent since it was the weekend. The very nice suite was another big plus. Only negative; first Residence Inn...

My wife, MIL and I visited our grandson in DC. We booked a 2 BR unit which had been recently refurbished and everything is sparkly clean. The motel is approximately a mile from the nearest Metro station for those not wanting to drive into the city, which is a nightmare for driving. The traffic is hectic due to the numerous... More

I've stayed here a lot over the last two years (not my choice.) The renovations are nice but they have never fixed the problems with the TV signal. The picture and sound comes and goes or stops completely. I always get the "we are working on it" or "unplug and plug it back in" response. I've even spoken to Dave,... More

I've stayed here multiple times, and always look to it as a possible place to lodge when heading to Northern Virginia. It's tucked back off the street, so it has a quiet feel to it, but it' located near several major thoroughfares for easy access to I-495 and I-66, as well as route 50. It's as easier to get anywhere... More

Our family of 4 recently stayed here for 3 nights visiting relatives. We had a 2 bedroom 2 bath suite. The room looked recently updated/renovated with a full kitchen. The layout is similar to other Residence Inn locations. There is a nice, small gym, and an outdoor pool which we used while there. There was a life guard on duty... More

Good Morning Jessica, Thank you for staying with us at the Residence Inn Merrifield and for taking the time to review your stay.
