Homewood Suites, Alexandria, VA is a great hotel facility for longer stays when you need the comforts and amenities of your home. My family and I have stayed in other Homewood Suites and this is the best by far because of both the facility and the staff. The staff was extremely helpful and accommodating throughout our stay; which included a couple of extra days due to our air travel arrangements being delayed because of Super Storm Sandy. The facility is very comfortable, especially the main lobby area where breakfasts are served daily and light dinners served four evenings (M, T, W & Th). The quality, taste and variety of food selections are excellent. The evening meals even include a salad bar with a variety of toppings and fresh fruit. The suite rooms are roomy and nicely laid out for family comfort. It was nice to have the work desk in the bedroom instead of the living area. The full size refrigerator is nice, so it’s possible to keep items like ice cream, and other frozen items. Just remember to start the icemaker when you arrive; no icemakers in the hallways. The shuttle service to and from the King Street Metro & Amtrack stations is very efficient and dependable. We were able to get in and out of DC with relative ease. We observed that the entire staff of Homewood Suites working together to make their guest’s stays as comfortable and pleasant as possible. This was particularly evident during the hurricane, and we sincerely appreciated the excellent hospitality. This is where my family will stay the next time we visit the area.
