“Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2014

We wanted to stay near Washington but not in Washington. This hotel is a 15 min hoppa bus trip (provided by the hotel) to Alexandria and then it was a 30 min rail journey into Washington itself.. Alexadria is well worth a visit in its own right with the free trolley bus running the length of the street and wide variety of shops and restaurants. The hotel itself was very clean and the room was very well equipped with large bathroom, separate lounge and kitchen area (if required). On a Monday to Thursday there was also a complimentary evening buffet meal - which was not expansive but adequate, breakfast was included in the room rate as well. Hotel staff were very helpful and overall offered very good value for money.

The real bonus here was the outside pool area which was great to cool off and relax and well used by the guests but not overcrowded, the hotel provided a lifeguard.

It is also within easy driving of Arlington National Cemetery which we visited during our stay in the area.

My family and I absolutely loved our time at this hotel. Upon check-in we were greeted by Lomelita and Gigi who answered almost question we had about the sites and area. The rooms were very spacious and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast that was served every morning was delicious with a wide variety of foods to choose from. The evening reception was great too! We didn't have to buy dinner 3 out of the 4 nights we were there. They even had a coffee/tea station available 24 hrs a day. The dining area has an abundance of seating and was very comfortable. My kids loved the duck shaped pool and I loved the whirlpool! While chatting with the concierge I learned that the hotel was remodeled recently and I have to say that with everything that is offered it is well worth the money you pay for the stay, from now on I will definatley try to stay in a Homewood Suites while on vacation.

chose this hotel based on other reviews online and location to washington DC. We were very pleased with everything. Our room was clean. Beds were comfortable. Staff very helpful. Breakfast and small meal served in evening was sufficient and well presented and attended to. It was an easy drive to DC as well as other areas of VA for sightseeing. Close to fast food places and other convenient stores. Pool and hot tub area nice and clean and open long hours. Only complaint would be the mattress on the pullout sofa bed. Definitely in need of new ones as ours was lumpy and could feel all the springs. We did complain and were given extra bedding to add as cushioning on the mattress. It helped a bit. My 8 yr old managed to sleep on it but did complain how uncomfortable it was. Would recommend this hotel to all.

My family loved this place. It may not be as fancy and flashy as other hotels. It's like home away from home. Breakfast and dinner are decent. Perfect if you are on a budget. Nice driving distance to/from DC even during rush hours.

You can't go wrong if you stay at this hotel. Wonderful staff, food and accommodations. Beautifully decorated and the rooms are perfect. The proximity to the metro (and the shuttle takes you there and picks you up) was definitely a plus. Close to grocery stores and shopping stores such as Target, World Market, etc.. and restaurants like Olive Garden, Chili's if you don't stay for the dinners provided on Monday - Thursdays. You can't go wrong if you stay at this hotel. I'll be back.

We had stayed at the Hilton Homewood Suites in East Rutherford NJ and loved it so didn't hesitate to book at the Hilton Homewood Suites again when we were planning to visit Washington. We were disappointed that despite their claim on their website for "free drinks Mon-Thurs", they do not provide this. Apparently they are the only ones who don't (??). I checked again when we got home and it's still on their website.

Our room was nice but we had to call down because when we opened the fold-out couch, there were still dirty sheets on it from the last visitors. As well, a large used mop/swiffer was left in our bathroom one day.
The pool was beautiful but the 2nd night we were there we had to leave because there were 5 children running around the pool, jumping in, and throwing a large ball at each other. The lifeguard warned them to walk once and then otherwise did/said nothing. This was at 8:30 pm. The pool should be for all guests to enjoy, and, if there is a lifeguard, he/she should be monitoring this for safety as well as enjoyment of all guests..
The food was pretty good (although not as much selection as the other Homewood Suites) and the shuttle to the Metro was excellent and reliable. Staff was friendly. We stayed in the Hilton Homewood Suites in Syracuse on the way home and their meals/drinks/pool were far superior!

I hsd the pleasure of staying at this hotel for 2 weeks due to a flooding issue at my home. The staff did their best to accommodate my family and I despite the miscommunication between the insurance company and the booking liason. Lilliana, Joe and co were a pleasure to interact with. I left the hotel with very fond memories. I am docking 1 star off the rating based on the lack of acknowledgement and courtesy of the housekeeping staff...
