“Excellent location, service and value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

I stay regularly at this hotel. The staff has been very accommodating and the friendly. The amenities, room, and morning breakfast are tops! The rooms are clean and the common areas of the hotel are maintained well. I was able to walk to either the King St. Metro Station or to the Eisenhower Station. Super Location.

Stayed January 2013, traveled on business

The location of the hotel was within walking distance from restaurants, AMC movie theatre. The hotel provides a Shuttle service to/from the airport and to/from Metro/bus station. The room was spacious with a full kitchen(that was a plus for a family). Complimentary Breakfast is provided every morning with a different item in the menu everyday. The fitness center has a state of the art equipment s. Overall it was a good choice.Excellent customer and room service. Staff are very courteous.

Room Tip: higher floors are better as you get to have a spectacular view of some of the area monument and of t...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

I was in town for a training class and stayed at this hotel. I found it rather cold and inpersonal with the staff more or less just doing their job and not making much of a extra step to make you comfortable. In one case more interested in talking on the phone than helping me. It is within walking distance of Duke Street and there are a few restaurants around a little closer. The breakfast is pretty standard with the powered eggs (or so they seemed) and usual breakfast fare you find in most hotels. Interesting was the evening "manager specials" the night I was there was nacho night and was quite good. Besides the $200 per night hotel charge there is the $18 parking which always annoys me. So pretty standard, nothing special.

Room Tip: try to stay away from the train side

... from Kelvin at the front desk, who tried very hard to help us. Hotel is very handy for the metro, and is very comfortable, especially the mattress. The room ws large and very well furnished. Altogether very good value for money. Thanks again.

All of the staff are very friendly, courteous and helpful. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the hotel is very well maintained. The lobby area is very welcoming and relaxing. The staff go out of their way to take care of you and any needs you may have. The complimentary breakfast offers many choices and the evening social is always a pleasant way to end the day. I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling in the area without hesitation.

As always the Marriott staff made this stay well worth it. Everyone there was always pleasant and eager to help in anyway they could. From the front desk staff, to the housekeeping or maintenance and the shuttle driver. Kudos to all. The room was clean and well stocked and everything was in working order which always helps! This hotel is a short walk to a Metro stop for a trip into DC and the hotel provides a free shuttle to the Old Town/King St. area for drinks and dining. Breakfast is included and has a decent variety and Monday-Wednesday they have a managers reception type of deal with a light meal and drinks also. My only knock would be the parking. Like everywhere else in this area it is limited and expensive. Don't bring your full size SUV and expect to put it in the parking deck! This area is a good place to stay if you don't want to stay within DC since you can just hop the Metro and be there in 20-30 minutes anyway.

Room Tip: Try to get on the non Metro track side. Not too much noise from the tracks but, may make it a bit b...

Hi Bassin66!
Thank you very much for the 5 star review! Your "kudos" to the staff is very much appreciated, as are your positive comments about the complimentary hot breakfast, our convenient location, the quality of our rooms and complimentary shuttle. I can certainly empathize with you about parking in the area.
Thanks again for the review, and we look forward to seeing you again when your travels bring you to the Alexandria/DC area.

A very comfortable stay. The rooms are large (with kitchenette, table and chairs, settee and en suite). The rooms are clean and have a good view. Breakfast is fine, there's plenty and it's wholesome. The receptionists are very accommodating and extremely helpful. A very comfortable stay
