This is a very decent property. It is not far from 2 Metro stops. While there is not a ton around the hotel, there are a couple of areas within a few minute walk with restaurants, a movie theater, etc. Do not let the title of "Old Town" fool you- while it may somehow technically be called Old Town, this...

We stayed 4 nights and couldn't have been happier! From the shuttle bus drivers, front desk and housekeeping staff...all were friendly and knowledgeable! I don't remember staying anywhere else that had a better hot breakfast and much to my pleasant surprise they served dinner. Simple but fresh and delicious!

Guest Service Manager Nicole Freeman and Sales/Marketing Reps Sade Asaya and Cassandra located at Marriott Residence Inn, 2345 Mill Road, Alexandria, VA 22314, provided me and my guest the best customer service I've ever experienced!

The hotel was nice. Our 15th floor corner room was a decent size. The breakfast was standard - make-your-own-waffles, eggs, b'fast meat, oatmeal, etc. Although this hotel has "Old Town" in its name (and may be within the actual town limits), it was pretty far to get to the touristy area. Thankfully the free shuttle accommodated us there and back... More

I travel often for work, and when I am going to be at a location for a long time I like to find a hotel and hotel community that feels like family. I have found that at the Residence Inn Alexandria.

While not really in the heart of old Town, this hotel lies in what seems like the business district of Alexandria - a very nice and safe area. The services of the hotel were nice, especially the nightly shuttle rides to and from old down. The room was nice, and the staff were very accommodating. Would stay here again.

I stayed at the Residence Inn from August 3rd to the 15th. During this stay my $400 headphones were taken from my nightstand. When I noticed they were missing I informed the front desk.
