Residence Inn is a very popular hotel brand with 9 locations near the DC metro lines. Of those 9, we recommend the Ballston Residence Inn. Although rates are somewhat higher than options like Dunn-Loring or Spring Hill, the overall experience is better with short commute to DC sights and very high reviews. Pentagon City, Federal Center, Courthouse/Clarendon and Bethesda were more expensive on average, and had higher fees. Dupont Circle had comparable weekday rates but weekends saw no discount. Foggy Bottom is actually a close second because of their low weekday and weekend rates, but the high parking fee cuts the saving for anyone who has a car.
So, if you plan on staying in a Residence Inn for your DC trip, look at Ballston first. And, if you don’t plan on driving or renting a car for the trip, take a look at Foggy Bottom Residence Inn for good weekday rates.
