“Home Away from Home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

My family and I arrived at the hotel at about 8:30am this past Monday morning and the front desk staff were awesome! They went ahead and got us checked in to our suites and allowed us to go ahead and eat breakdfast with them. The shuttle from the hotel to the Metro station was very convenient and enabled us to keep our vehicle parked at the hotel the entire week without having to worry about parking fees and traffic. All of the staff were very courteous and hospitable which made us all feel at home the entire week. My only complaint is that we couldn't stay longer.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the pool to get a good view.

I look for hotels with a separate bedroom and living room so, if I am up late working or watching TV, I do not bother my wife and/or the kids. This hotel had a room with two separate bedrooms from the living room for a very good price. I felt very comfortable here. The pool was small but perfect for the size of the hotel. We never felt crowded. The breakfast was very good. The dinner, or early hot snack/meal, what they call the manager's reception, was only ok, but it was unexpected, so it was a plus. The business center was small but, again, adequate for the size of the hotel. I did not feel crowded and did not have to wait. Same with the Jacuzzi. There is a shuttle to the train but we drove everywhere and Old Town Alexandria is only 5-15 minutes away and the Mall in DC is only 15-25 minutes away. All in all, it was a very pleasant stay and I would go back to this hotel.

For our family of 4, this was a great launching point for our DC vacation. The shuttle to the Metro was handy but sometimes there wasn't enough room...make sure you understand how they are handing out the passes in advance and be prepared to wait 30-60 minutes (while you eat breakfast). The breakfasts and dinners were fine, had better, had worse. Proximity to the metro was much better than places like National Harbor. The pool and hot tub were not crowded and helped recuperate after long days of walking.

Homewood Suites, Alexandria was a great experience!. The hotel was very clean. The staff was extremely courteous and helpful. The shuttle service to the Kings Street Metro was a great plus for convenience. We very much enjoyed the breakfast buffet and dinner reception. Good food. Overall the experience at Homewood Suites made our entire trip to Washington D.C. a memorable time for our family. Should we return to visit Washington D.C. again, this hotel would be our first choice.

We loved breakfast and the evening reception was wonderful. The shuttle was hard to catch and you had to have a ticket to board which was passed out 30 minutes prior. The front desk clerk could have been more helpful. We discovered that we could have ridden the one next door as long as it was not full on the second day (after we had paid for $18 for parking at the metro station the first day.) The bed was too soft in the room and my husband and I rolled towards the middle of the bed all night long. We ended up taking turns sleeping on the floor so one of us could use the bed without feeling like we were sinking towards the middle. For the most part the staff was very cordial. The room was clean and well laid out. The bathroom was big with a seperate room for the vanity.

Our family stayed 5 days at the Homewood Suites in Alexandria and we could not have been treated any better. The location is close to just about everything you want to see and do when in the DC area. If you do not want to drive into DC, take the shuttle from the hotel to the subway.
There is a free breakfast that our kids enjoyed and a pool table just off the lobby. The rooms are large and spacious, very clean and modern. The staff was always friendly and helpful, giving tips of what to see and the easiest way to get there.
The Smithsonian Air & Space, Stephen F. Udvar-Hazy Center is a short drive away and you can get an up close look at the Space Shuttle Discovery.
If you are planning a vacation to this part of the country, I would highly recommend this location.

We always stay at Hilton Hotels so naturally, I expected this one to be on par with the quality of a higher end hotel. Pool staff was great. The lobby is beautiful, first impression was really good till we got to the room. It was clean, but furniture was well worn, sofa was aged looking and dirty, bathtub had cracks in it. When we turned on whirl pool jets, clumps of hair came out into the water and we could not use it. Bed was comfortable. I was told there was an oven in the full kitchen, but there is not.
I could deal with all of this, but the WORST part of the stay was the breakfast staff (with the exception of one woman), breakfast ends at 10, there is plenty of food but if you get there at 9:50 you better be prepared to grab everything you can quickly because they start to take the food just before breakfast ends. If you are making a waffle, you won't be able to go get syrup and butter. They take away the cups for drinks, unplug the waffle maker while your waffle is cooking. They have no regard or respect for the guests. When I mentioned to one staff member that I have never been in a hotel that takes everything away so quickly she responded by saying, "Ten o'clock is ten o'clock." Well for this guest, ten o'clock is never returning to a Homewood Suite, time to check out the Marriot chain instead." So much for my Hilton Honors Gold status.
