“Great all around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2012

You can't go wrong! The service, Internet, and the room was wonderful. I travel the USPTO often and this hotel is where I always stay, and I always enjoy my stay. I would recommend it to anyone. I think it would also be a nice place to stay even if you were not there for business.

Where should I start…this was an absolute amazing hotel. The staff consistently fell over themselves assisting my team members and me. The rooms and beading looked new and were cleaned exceptionally well everyday of our stay. The hotel is centrally located within the Old Town Alexandria area and whatever anything was beyond walking distance the hotel shuttle dropped us off and picked us up. The complimentary breakfast and dinner were always flavorful and fresh. If you hit the gym after work I challenge you to find a better gym in a hotel for this price. In closing, I have spent over 100 days in a hotel this past year…I found this property to be in the top 10%. You’re crazy if you don’t stay here!

This is my second extended stay at this hotel. And I found that hotel looked just as nice as the first time. The property is well maintained. I have always enjoyed the staff. They are professional and make you feel welcome. It always feels like my home away from home.

My best friend Priceline picked another winner here. People are sometimes afraid to use the "Name Your Own Price" system because you have to pay for the room before you know where it is. But they have never put me in a dump and more often I have been pleasantly surprised. This was an example of that. An immaculate property in a high rise with spectacular views. Quiet, secure, and well appointed. I only wish I could have stayed more than one night! My only quibble is that there are not any restaurants in the immediate vicinity. I arrived late and tired and hungry so this was disconcerting. But they do sell microwave meals in the lobby and the rooms have full kitchens. So if you're ok with microwave pizza and Ben and Jerry's ice cream you're good to go. Otherwise there are some restaurants a few blocks away.

We stayed here for 3 days to visit DC and were very impressed with this hotel. The staff were very courteous. The room was very clean and well maintained. The free breakfast and the evening social were impressive. Also the free shuttle to the metro helped us a lot in the cold weather. Only complain is the parking fee. It is $18/day which I think is a little too much. Other than that I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the DC area

My family and I stayed here on our way to SC from CT. Was immediately impressed with the attentive staff and cleanliness of the property. Room was amazing; immaculate, well-appointed, state-of-the- art ammenities. Breakfast area was also immaculate, and efficiently tended. This is obviously a well-run property. Would highly recommend this hotel for all travelers.

This residence Inn is located in a quite part of Alexandria. The metro station is probably a 5 minute walk. Hot breakfast served in the morning was delicious. Rooms were clean and comfortable. A great value! Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Studio Suite is big enough for a small family travalling with a baby or toddler.
