We are on day 4 of a 5 day family trip to DC and then we'll be on to NYC. Wishing we could take this hotel with us to NYC. We have only great things to say about this place. .3 miles from one metro and .5 miles to another. Shuttle takes us to and from metro on days we... More

Stayed over 3 nights for a business trip. Got terrific rate via Expedia. Spotless room with nicely-equipped kitchen. Metro runs right by hotel but windows are double paned & extremely good sound barriers. In walkable area & half-mile from Whole Foods. Parking garage fee pretty gouging ($20/day) & spaces are somewhat frighteningly narrow, but for DC area that fee is... More

Dear Sympetrum, thank you for the very good remarks regarding my hotel staff and services. We pride ourselves on having the absolute lowest hotel parking rates in town. We also provide ample wide parking availability for all size vehicles, so whatever the size … “come one come all” … and we’ll accommodate everyone’s vehicle at the lowest price! Once again... More

I loved the room I shared with my daughter! Girl's weekend to see Tampa Bay Bucs play Washington! Ideal! Loved the chaise lounge! The bed was so comfortable! Taxi service also provided free of charge within limits! Very handy!

The property's new, clean, spacious and well located. It's true that there is limited parking and the arrival process by car is not yet labeled with good signage. The rooms, staff, lobby, breakfast, and overall hotel experience are what you would expect from Marriott. Very friendly and helpful staff. There's a shuttle van to drive you into king street or...

Dear BLRfromVF, I am glad that you enjoyed our close walking distance location to the metro and “king street action”. Not only does everyone else that stays here enjoy that too, they also love our unique high rise designed Residence Inn (totally different and a refreshing change from the standard that they are used to). Additionally, everyone appreciates the value... More

I recently stayed for a short visit with relatives and was impressed with the location right between two Metro Stops. Great restaurants in the area, a movie theater two blocks away. The staff was very helpful and professional. Standard residential room with kitchenette, desk and internet but very clean and well maintained. Hot breakfast every morning and different entertainments at... More

We stayed two nights here over a weekend. The first night we called front desk to get an extra blanket because they only gave us one for our two bedroom suite (and the bedding were all paper thin). It never came. The next night when we requested an extra blanket, they said they had ran out of blankets. They also... More

This was my first visit to this hotel, and I was only able to stay for one night. My room was spacious - two bedrooms, two bathrooms, kitchen, and living area. As always, I appreciate Residence Inn for the ability to cook meals for myself (Whole Foods Market within walking distance). For the runners out there, a beautiful segment of... More

Love this hotel. Great location, nice rooms, delicious breakfast! When we checked in, we were told that parking would be an additional $20 per night which we agreed to. There is a small parking garage under the hotel and I mean small. I drive a large SUV and had a really hard time getting in and out of spaces when... More

Everything about the hotel was great. Breakfast was wonderful and the staff shuttled up to and from the Metro and Old Town Alexandria without complaint.
