"New extended stay hotel!"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Built in May 2013, this hotel would make a great host hotel for your next extended stay. Spacious suites available, making this hotel a great fit for groups who want to place 4-6 people per room. Suites include a full kitchenette, making it a convenient option for those guests who would like to be near the city and the Metro. Breakfast is included in the rate, as well as access to their business and fitness centers.

Verified Reviews of Residence Inn Arlington Ballston

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Customer Service Only Outpaced by New Hotel's Amenities."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
This hotel was constructed 18 months ago and if it had any kinks they have been smoothed out. This facility and its staff work like a well oiled machine. From check in to room cleaning to check out, all went like clock work. Lodging for a family reunion made this the perfect location. The full English breakfast provided the necessary fuel to power through the first half of the day. The hotel is just on the edge of all the happenings with easy access to the thriving Orange Line corridor of Arlington's restaurants, shops and bars and a stone's throw from all the sites of Washington, DC. A well informed staff was able to assist with almost any question.

"Superior Rooms and Excellent Staff. Our group loved it."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Residence Inn. The hotel was very busy with conventions and out of towners, but the staff remained kind and courteous to us at all times. Our requests for room service were met quickly, and the complimentary food they offered was the best I have had at any hotel. It is conveniently located next to shopping, food and public transportation. The next time we visit, we will definitely choose Residence Inn Ballston!

"Courteous and helpful."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
My family thoroughly enjoyed our reunion at this beautiful hotel. The view of the fireworks on the 4th of July from the balcony of the Junior Executive Suite was the highlight of the trip. Everyone was professional and extremely helpful to us. I would recommend this place for any size gathering. We, the Marshall Johnson Clan would like to say, thank you, and keep up the good customer service!

"Great for groups!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
We stayed at the Residence Inn Arlington Ballston in May with 21 8th grade Model UN students and were very impressed with this hotel. The booking process was easy and flexible, and the staff were extremely helpful. We had a student with a non-serious injury that occurred on Saturday night and the night manager went above and beyond to help her out. The interior of this hotel is beautiful, and the beds are among the most comfortable I've ever experienced in a hotel. We loved the location and easy access to the Ballston Metro. We felt safe walking with the kids to the Metro and Ballston attractions. We'll definitely be back next year!

"Difficulties initially, but Angel Canales helped"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Rooms were nice. I had asked to have one coach and two player rooms on each floor. When we got there, we had two player rooms on each floor and two coach rooms on the same floor. Also, when we arrived, I checked in and then went to park the bus at the address that Alison gave me on her paperwork. After about 30 minutes of looking, I went into a store and they told me that there are no longer bus parking lots in Ballston. That was one of the reasons that we came there, because of bus parking. When I got back to the hotel and spoke with Angel Canales, he helped tremendously and made the decision to park our school bus in the loading dock, which I appreciated tremendously. He really helped us. I do believe that you should make contact with the city of Arlington and make sure that the paperwork is updated as to bus parking. If you can't park on-site, bus parking is tremendously important. Thanks again to Angel. He was tremendous. Overall, our experience was good.
