“Wonderful stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

The Residence Inn was terrific. The people at the front desk were friendly, they allowed me to have a late checkout, and provided me with great directions to a local store. Thanks to Orbitz, I got a really good deal on the rate!
The room was wonderful; it was large and clean, and the king-size bed was very comfortable. I enjoyed their continental breakfast; the food selection was extensive and better than most!
Overall, it was a great choice.

Thank you for sharing with us the wonderful experience that you had at our hotel. Our breakfast staff is uniquely talented and they take pride in their breadth of recipes that provided that delicious and superior variety of full American Breakfast items that you experienced each morning. I share that pride and extend it to Housekeeping's clean rooms with comfortable beds, the front desk's friendly service, and the entire team's cooperative efforts of customer service that translated to your wonderful stay and overall great choice! Once again thank you for the post, and thank you for choosing the Residence Inn Carlyle.

What a delightful surprise! The Residence Inn is a well-appointed, beautifully decorated and conveniently located. The rates are excellent, and the quality of the rooms impressed. We had two one-bedroom units, and we asked that they be close together, as my husband and I would be in one, and our 17 and 22 year olds would share the other. They placed us at the end of the hallway, rooms directly across from one another, both corner rooms. It was simply perfect. The staff was friendly and helpful, quick to offer assistance for anything from local travel and transportation to where the best pizza could be ordered- and delivered! I will make this my first choice when visiting the DC area- friendly, safe neighborhood, two blocks to the Metro station, and a 5 minute walk to Old Town Alexandria and the shopping and dining there.

Room Tip: We had rooms on both sides of the hotel, and they were both quiet, comfortable and had stunning up-c...

We stayed in a corner suite and felt very comfortable during our stay. The room was quiet even though we overlooked the trains. The surrounding area is safe and walkable even at night. The shuttle service could have been a bit better, an extra van would have been nice as the wait at times was a bit long.

Thank you for posting about how great your stay was with us. It is always pleasing to me to learn that our customized sound proofing windows consistently does such an effective job keeping the train noise outside to provide all of our guest rooms with quiet comfort. We are also very fortunate enough to be so conveniently located in walking distance of an abundant array of retail choices and destination spots. Once again thank you for sharing about how great our hotel and location is, and I look forward to seeing you again on your next visit.

My husband, 3 young-adult children & I stayed in Room 919, a very spacious 2-bedroom/2-king suite, July 24 - 28/13. Our rooms were clean and comfortable. Without exception the staff was friendly, courteous and helpful. The breakfasts and the one evening reception we attended were good. The fitness room is adequately equipped. The only negatives we encountered were very minor - getting several bottles of conditioner but no shampoo, a wobbly kitchen table, slow internet on one evening, and insufficient seating in the breakfast area on two occasions. On the whole, very good value!

Okay, I'm a big fan of this property and the terrific people who run this hotel. We stay three or four times a year and will keep returning. Most recently, we reserved a king suite but due to a problem with the door lock, we were moved to a two-bedroom. Having been on the road for a month, this was a welcome surprise! The rooms had king beds and good-sized baths and were separated by a central living/dining/kitchen area. One bedroom had a stunning floor-to-ceiling view of the courthouse and southeastern Alexandria/Old Town. The other was larger and looked out upon the west side buildings and train tracks. We heard the trains but they were not a problem or nuisance for us. A large stove, refrigerator, and dishwasher were spotless and in perfect working order.

The fitness room and dining area are spacious and well-planned. We enjoyed the delicious hot breakfasts and evening socials; the dining crew is sweet and proficient.

The location is ideal for us - we're a short walk to the metro and close-by businesses/eateries and a healthy walk to central Old Town and the water. There's a good cinema/shopping center and the picturesque Masonic Temple near the hotel. Lastly, the complimentary shuttle will take you anywhere within a 3?-mile radius and the drivers are consistently efficient and nice (they accept tips :).

Special thanks to Pam (check-in) and John (tech), their assistance and attitude are outstanding.

This was my second time staying at a Residence Inn. What a terrific concept.
I stayed in a studio bedroom. Kitchen was great. King size bed was ohh so comfortable. TV channels - many and easy to use remote. Loved the free microwave popcorn pkg in the room.
Shuttle service was great - nice feature.
The quality of the room and decor was much appreciated. Really liked the color scheme used.
Made me feel good - good feng shui.
More hotel rooms should be like the Residence Inn. Even though this property is in a business area, there were LOTS of couples and families staying here on weekend. Breakfast room was busy, busy with vacationers.
Lobby and room was very clean and inviting.
One very minor compliant: each time I entered my room, I smelled a VERY faint Indian food smell. Did not notice after a couple minutes.
