The Residence Inn - Capital View, in Arlington, VA lies within the Crystal City portion of the city. This section is full of hotels and restaurants to choose from. When making a decision, this hotel is an excellent choice and a great place to stay to quickly get into Washington, DC.
The staff is very friendly and helpful. There is a regular shuttle to the closest metro stop, as well as to the airport. A full complimentary breakfast is served each morning consisting of eggs, sausage, french toast, chipped beef biscuits and various other choices.
The rooms themselves are very clean and spacious, including a kitchen for anyone looking to cook for themselves. The shower and toilet were separate from the sink area, allowing two people to get ready at the same time in the morning.
The only negative we found was the parking cost of $22 per day. Even though the hotel rates are very reasonable, this parking cost I think is pretty ridiculous. Even hotels inside of the main area of Washington, DC don't ask for this much in parking.
