This is a great property if you want to "do" DC and Old Town. Close to Metro and shuttle bus is a very nice feature to get to the bottom of King Street for the Old Town experience. The staff was excellent and very friendly. This is a very clean and comfortable property. I would highly recommend it to anyone!

My husband and I just came back from a two night stay at this hotel. The hotel was very nice and clean. Because the room has a kitchenette (which we really didn't use) it makes the room so much more spacious. The decor in our room was very updated and modern, the bed was soft and comfortable. The sink is... More

While the hotel claims to be just a few blocks away from the Metro, it seemed to take a considerable amount of time to walk to the hotel from the King Street Metro Station. (It is close, but not exactly a stone's throw away.) [Caveat: I took the metro from Ronald Reagan International Airport, which is just a few stops... More

We stayed here over a weekend for a friend's wedding. The price is very reasonable, particularly considering the large and comfortable rooms. The included breakfast was nice. The hotel is within walking distance of the Old Town Alexandria scene, and is very close to the metro. So why only three stars? Because (for me, at least) the two necessities that... More

There are several reasons this hotel receives a #1 rating in Alexandria. Price: My husband and I booked through Travelocity a two night stay this past weekend at $124 average per night. A bargain compared to other hotels in the area with fewer amenities. There is a $15 per day charge for parking in the garage. Amenities: Our room was... More

Wow! There is a reason this hotel is #1 in Alexandria. It strives for excellence and achieves it. We had a small problem with our A/C unit that necessitated our switching rooms. The hotel made this process totally painless AND comp'd our parking expense. Every staff member at this hotel is super friendly. The room was clean. The breakfast is... More

We were very pleased with the Residence Inn; great location, clean and comfortable, large suites, friendly staff, shuttle drivers on time and helpful (Michael A+ service). We are planning to return in the spring and will book the entire week here. The metro stop is a short walk (or shuttle) and exactly fifteen minutes into DC.

The Residence Inn Oldtown could not have been a better place to stay to visit both Oldtown and DC, and only two Metro stops from Reagan National. We were 3 or 4 blocks from the Metro and then a 10 minute ride into DC. The hotel has a shuttle which will take you anywhere in Oldtown within a 1-mile radius... More

I stayed at the Residence Inn Old Town for four nights at the end of September. The only evidence of renovation during my stay was a sign near the elevator saying the new fitness equipment would be installed in October. I agree with everything the previous reviewer stated about the pleasant staff, quiet and clean hotel, and the good location... More
