I have been staying at this hotel since the first week of May 2010 and will most likely be here through the end of the year. I've stayed her for extended periods in the past and I would not want to stay anywhere else. The staff is so amazingly accommodating you feel there's almost nothing you can't ask of them.... More

Nice hotel in a very good location. Room was a studio suite--contemporary decor, very clean, nice big flat screen TV. Bed was comfortable, room was quiet. Free dinner Monday-Thursdays, free Washington Post, even on Sunday. Nice pool, long enough to swim short laps, and a lifeguard on duty made sure kids didn't come to the pool without their parents (thanks!).... More

We just returned from Residence Inn Alexandria Old Town. Overall I am pleased with our stay of 5 nights. We had 2 rooms and one of the rooms had a problem with the A/C for the first 3 nights. I complained about it numerous times before it got fixed. However, the manager compensated for our troubles in a way that... More

Just returned from our trip to Alexandria Old Town and this hotel was our base between all other travels. It’s a great hotel with everything one would be looking for. The front desk staff was very friendly, they even spoiled our two small dogs. The room has all the amenities that one would be looking for, full kitchen, fridge, dishwasher.... More

We are currently staying at this Marriott Residence Inn. There are great things about this hotel: Free wifi, laundry facilities, nice beds, good housekeeping, breakfast buffet and evening cocktail hour. The rooms are furnished nicely, although the cushion on our sofa needs replacing (Room 825). The kitchen is well-equipped. The flat panel televisions (we had a one bedroom suite with... More

We were in town for my father running the Marine Corps Marathon. We love this location due to the proximity to the Metro, as well as it being a short walking distance from Old Town Alexandria. Also, rooms here a a much better value than staying in the middle of DC. We booked a one bedroom suite, but were upgraded... More

I am a big fan of the Residence Inn Old Town Alexandria’s sister property the Residence Inn at Carlye. Both are located within walking distance of Alexandria’s King Street metro, but The Carlyle property (181 rooms) is a bit more intimate. It’s perfect for a romantic getaway, but further away from the action of Old Town. In contrast, The Old... More

If I had more than 2 thumbs, I'd put them all up for this hotel. It's located just a few blocks from the King St. Metro station, had secure parking ($15 per night), had a very helpful staff, and the room was outstanding. We got there at 8:00 am and asked if we could just park our car for the... More

I am currently staying at this hotel as I type this review. I've been here a week and will be here for another week. I can't say enough good things about this hotel! Excellent service, nice, clean rooms. Buffet breakfast is great. The evening reception, while the food is so-so, is just a nice extra. You get 2 servings of... More

The hotel was a perfect mix of outside D.C but close to the Metro system. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The two bedroom unit was large enough so two teenagers did not get on my nerves. The free breakfast was great. We loved the make your own waffles. The free trolley down King street was an added benefit for... More
