The location of the hotel is away from Jefferson Davis Hwy and the main strip of hotels, and rather at the far edge of Chrystal City. That is a great item if you have a rental car, being its very easy to get to from JD Hwy. Walking distance to most of the Chrystal City bars and restaurants is under 15 min to most -- and with the shuttle to the metro - it places most of DC within your travel radius as well.
Its hard to determine which item I really liked the most at this Residence Inn, and that is because it offers so much - and succeeds at each level. From the moment you walk in by the glass fireplace and are greeted by the desk, till the time I left - service was continuously exceptional. I really liked the rooms, which were more suite than room. One of the best have stayed in anywhere. Great bed and perfect mattress, great shower pressure, plenty of room in the room. Then there was the excellent breakfast, which was top notch.
I can do nothing but give my highest marks and highest recommendation for the Residence Inn - this is the place you want to stay in the DC area.

We loved our staff in Crystal city. We stayed there as it was close to DCA, close to the metro so we could get around the city and close to the monuments. The staff was incredible!! Food good and gym good. Pool is a small for lap swimming but nice.
No complaints at all. Staff and hotel was beautiful and very convenient to the metro and local dining. I wish I had known that you have to pay for parking ($20/day) but I would have had to pay it anyway...
