I picked the Residence Inn in Alexandria for a number of reasons. First as they say location, location, location. This hotel is two blocks from the King St. Metro and if two blocks is too much the hotel offers a shuttle service. The second reason I chose this hotel was because there are so many great restaurants near the hotel... More

I loved everything about this property. The room was very clean, nicely furnished and spacious. We stayed for 2 nights. The breakfast buffet is the best I've ever experienced. The staff was very attentive. The hotel is in close proximity to the Metro and also offers free shuttle service to the local restaurants. I can't wait to return again to... More

Let's face it, Alexandria, Virginia is not a place to look for bargain accommodations, especially if you want to be within walking distance of a Metro station as we did. Having lived in the Washington metro area in the past, I knew I didn't want to drive a car if I could possibly avoid it. So I put in a... More

Nice hotel. Very attentive staff, very reliable shuttle service. Independent that the government rate at $211.00 is in my opinion very high, I enjoyed my first experience there. Good morning food, each day of the week, and great light dinner Monday through Thursday evening. Good quality, but basic workout room, and very nicely appointed room. Hotel was very close to...

The staff at this Residence Inn made the experience of staying there more than just a "place to stay". They were professional yet took an interest in each guest that went beyond their job title. The facility, itself, was spotless and well maintained. Breakfast and "light dinner" were included in the room rate. The "light dinner" included salad, main course,... More

This hotel was just what we needed during a recent business trip. Check-in was quick and easy and they offered to upgrade the room for us without asking. The hotel offers and good breakfast everyday free of charge and a dinner Mon-Thur free of charge. The fitness center and pool were good and they had towels and water so you... More

The Residence Inn makes a very nice change from the routine of hotels in the nearby Arlington/Crystal City area. The staff were most helpful and the evening buffet was a nice surprise. Only a few hundred yards from the DC Metro it is one hotel I will definitely be returning to.

The best thing going for this property is the friendliness of the staff. I was greeted warmly and made to feel like they cared that I was spending my money there. Actual customer service! Wow - a rarity! I got to check in early as requested at the time of my reservation, and the staff even radioed housekeeping to make... More

This was a nicely kept hotel with suites, just perfect for a family, including 2 bedrooms and a full kitchen. About an 8 minute walk from the King Street metro (or a free hotel bus shuttle ride) and 1.5 blocks from Whole Foods, which was extremely convenient. They have a pool, open in the morning and evenings on weekdays, and... More
