It was 3am on a Friday night, hard to find vacancies at this time. Had bad experience at another hotel nearby so we took a chance with a chain hotel, expecting to pay a high price. But lo' and behold it was SURPRISINGLY inexpensive! And LESS than the previous place I was about to stay at! Yeah perhaps they can... More

Straight up: - The beds are hard and uncomfortable - The AC units are incredibly loud - No bottled water in-room (unlike Hilton, Hyatt, or SPG provides) For $250 USD a night after taxes and fees, there are much better options in the area. Between the hard beds and the racket coming from the air conditioning unit, I've experienced the... More

Good place to stay - staff is very friendly and attentive. We checked in were hit with a $40 "incidental" charge which hit my debit card immediately. I asked and was told it was for any damages, etc. The room we received was not one that was recently remodeled but the room above ours was in process...workers were hammering at... More

I'm pleasantly surprised with my entire stay here! From the outside the building didn't give any hint of the treasures inside. We were politely greeted by the staff upon our arrival and found our room to be surprisingly immaculate. I had to look long and hard to find anything which I'll mention below. Our room appears to have been renovated... More

Stayed for a night recently and were happy as usual with a Marriott Courtyard property. Currently under renovation, the hotel has a very nice lobby and bistro area. Parking is free on the premises, if a little challenging for larger vehicles, and is very convenient to I-95 and downtown Alexandria. Room was comfortable and clean and staff were helpful and...

We have stayed at this hotel in the past and wanted to return. The desk staff were uniformly pleasant and helpful, and Catherine was especially cheerful and friendly. Though none of the rooms have a great view, this hotel is very well-located. The morning host in the Bistro, "ZB," brought a real European flair to his job, and greeted us... More

We have family in Alexandria and visit the area two or three times a year. This is our favorite place to stay. Well located, not too far from the Metro and Old Town. Convenient for runners. The staff in the Bistro are very friendly and accommodating. In our experience, the rates here are often very low for the quality of... More

Spent 5 separate trips to this hotel while visiting our new family. The staff is very attentive to your needs, friendly, and courteous. The rooms were great, the bed being very comfortable and large, with many new pillows. Shower was roomy, and the water always hot.

This is a nice Marriott Courtyard hotel that always has the lowest rates for a quality hotel in Alexandria. I have stayed there many times and never been disappointed. A hotel shuttle bus will take you to the Eisenhower Metro station nearby and from there you can go anywhere in the DC area. There is a Starbucks in the lobby... More
