We stayed here for the first time, traveled for the cherry blossom festival. They say first impressions mean a lot. Upon checking in we were not told about the shuttle for the hotel, found out about it the next day. Could have used it the night we checked in. Our reservations were made 2 and 1/2 months prior to our... More

Marriott is doing a great job with the Residence Inn brand. I really enjoy staying with them. They are great value for money and this one is no exception. With very good proximity to Old Town and a quarter mile from the metro Yellow Line and a shuttle that runs 1 and a half mile radius you can get anywhere... More

The staff at this hotel is among the best of any Residence Inn that I've stayed at. The location is good for transportation needs - near the Metro, Amtrak station, and relatively close to the airport. There is a movie theater and a few restaurants within 5 minute walking distance and a few other restaurants about 10 minutes walking distance... More

We stayed here over a weekend in March.The hotel is about 5 minutes walk from Eisenhower Ave Metro Station making it very convenient for visiting DC. It is also close to Old Town Alexandria main attraction, King Street (about 25-30 minutes walk or 5 min short ride in the complementary hotel shuttle van). The room was very clean and spacious....

We stayed for 3 nights in mid-March at the Residence Inn South at Carlyle while visiting family. This is also a good location for trips into DC, about a 30 minute metro ride.

I took the family for a week of DC sightseeing. Very helpful staff with a good shuttle service to Old Town. A bit of a long metro ride to DC sights but it is a comfortable stay once the days' activities are done. Retail shops are a 10 minute walk but there are some nice places to eat and a... More

Not sure this place deserves the raves. It's clean but CRAMPED. I've stayed in plenty of Residence Inns and they have been far more spacious. We had 3 in the room - 4 or more people would be chaos. And the beds were AWFUL. I like a firm bed - not expecting a heavenly bed from Westin but come on.... More

I loved the service here. Everyone from the front desk to the breakfast staff, free shuttle bus driver, room cleaners was cheerful and helpful. The rooms are decorated in a contemporary theme and are comfortable; the mini kitchens are well equipped for an extended stay of 1 or 2 people. Many inviting restaurants are within easy walking distance; Old Town... More

Just a few blocks from the King Stree Metro and plenty of places to eat. Service was very helpful and friendly. Would rate this as the best place to stay in Alexandria's Old Town, but it's a pretty good hike to most of Old Town's attractions.
