The hotel staff was the best asset of the property. Everyone went out of his or her way to make my stay a pleasant one. I will be back here again for sure. The hotel is located near shopping, dinning and a movie theater. With all these places within walking distance it made for an easy stay.

Please read my profile for my biases. We are engaged in a long term consulting project in Alexandria, and this hotel was close by. Being Marriott fans we chose this one for its location. It is conveniently located near two Metro stops and since we tend to fly into DCA it makes getting here and leaving pretty simple. While I... More

My family and I Pricelined this hotel after arriving in the area earlier than originally planned. I'm so thankful this was the bid that worked!

I travel to North VA every year and always stay here. Great location walking distance to AMC and several shops/restaurants. Also has a shuttle that takes you into the heart of midtown and is located near the metro. The lobby is being remodeled but we didn't hear any sounds during our stay.

I stayed at this hotel for 4 months and just recently checked out. The upper management (Sade, Le'Chelle) were very accommodating and always on top of their job.

We have stayed at this hotel on three separate occasions now, and have experienced the two room and one room suites. The hotel and rooms are clean, the breakfast is free and great, the location is fantastic, and the complimentary shuttle very convenient. WiFi is complimentary and works fine. Parking is not free and actually somewhat expensive. Ultimately, we love... More

I stayed here overnight just after thanksgiving (Black Friday) and it was a good stay.

Stayed there a few times and it was very nice. However I had to pay for parking. Also if you stay on the wrong side of the hotel the metro will be right outside your window. I stayed on the other end and it was very silent.
