“Great Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Stayed at Homewood Suites in Alexandria for a mini vacation to the DC area and loved it. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Meals provided by the hotel were fresh and tasty. Room was clean and cozy and housekeeping did a wonderful job. We also enjoyed using the complimentary shuttle, provided by the hotel, to take us to the metro stop. It was nice to have Neutrogena toiletries stocked in the bathroom. Many places use off brand soaps and shampoos that dry out your skin and hair, but not here.

This hotel is conveniently located to many restaurants and stores, yet away from the DC congestion. We were very pleased w/ this hotel and will stay here again the next time we travel to the area.

Room Tip: Other members of our family stayed here as well and their room was just as nice as ours.

Housekeeping was always in the area but don't always come timely to service the room. I had to request service twice by 2PM. Also, if you are getting a AAA or AARP rate, be sure that is represents on your invoice at check out.

Room Tip: Higher floors have less traffic. Stay in the back, it's quieter.

Stayed at Homewood Suites in Alexandra, VA for New Year's Eve/Day and was very impressed! Our check-in was fast and everything was explained to us. We checked-in right on time as we were able to participate in the Manager's evening dinner reception which included hot dogs, chili, chips, fruit, veggies, a salad bar, and beverages. Every night they have a different menu, which I thought was nice. The buffet-style reception was managed very well and the attendant was constantly checking on the food and cleaning up.

That evening I also used their Business Office and was able to print a two-page document with no problem. The Business Office was clean and the equipment worked properly.

In the morning, the hot breakfast was awesome! I particularly liked the waffles which included whipped cream and strawberries. Most hotels just have sugar and butter to accompany the waffles. There were also eggs, sausage, bagels, pastries, fruit, and yogurt. The breakfast was plentiful. Coffee was served 24/7 at the hotel and I found it to be fresh and tasteful.

We stayed in a one-bedroom suite. It was clean and spacious. It included a full-sized refrigerator, two-burner stove with oven, microwave, sink, and dishes. One thing that I really liked about the room was that the windows opened (with a several safety latches of course). I need fresh air or a fan to sleep and the fact that the windows opened to provide fresh air was wonderful! The room decor was tasteful and up-to-date as well. Not to mention, TWO flat screen TVs. :-)

The only negative thing (if any) about the stay was the hassle upon leaving the hotel. We received several phone calls and room service knocked on the door before we had the opportunity to check-out. We checked out at 12:15, which was 15 minutes over the check-out time. Not a big deal, but of course we always remember the negative things! :-)

The hotel was very clean, breakfast was fine, front desk staff were friendly and helpful. We had a lot of space in the one bedroom suite, and ample storage space in two dressers. A great option for families - we were traveling with two adults and three kids and had plenty of room. The hotel is an easy 10 minute drive to the Smithsonian museums. The only reason I don't give it four stars is there wasn't much else around the hotel - we couldn't really go for a walk from the property. But for visiting Washington DC the price, location, and quality of the room can't be beat.

We stayed here in December 28 for one night. The one bedroom suite with 2 doubles was perfect for us with our 3 teens. The separate vanity area was convenient.. We didn't really use the kitchen but it seemed well equipped - even noticed a corkscrew! The complimentary microwave popcorn was a nice touch. There were 2 great flat screen TVs in the room along with DVD player. The breakfast was wonderful hot, fresh and with great choices. The free shuttle to the Metro was a wonderful convenience. The front desk clerk was very helpful - mapping out our Metro route, which train to take, where to get on and off, etc. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend!

Room Tip: A little bit of road noise - nothing major. A room in the back side of the hotel would probably be...

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.

I've stayed at other Hilton properties and wasn't impressed until now. This was our first stay at Homewood Suites, but not the last. The room was very comfortable, and the staff was very friendly and accomodating. We had a couple of special requests we made online, and they exceeded our expectations. Housekeeping was awesome and the breakfast that was included was pretty good. Keep up the good work!

Room Tip: I always ask for a quiet room away from the elevator and ice machines.
