“Very good Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2010

I have stayed at many Residence Inn's in my time and this one was no difference then the rest. The room ( a one bedroom) was nicely furnished and as was the hotel. It is one of the nicer ones I have stayed at. Good service and a all around good pick in a decent enough area, I would prefer to stay downtown but the price could not be beat.

Wow, where do I begin?!
I have stayed in numerous hotels in the Northern VA area, but this is the absolute best hotel I have EVER stayed in my life. Honestly I wanted to live here! LOL.
The rooms were beyond gorgeous: It resembled a studio apt. With a nice eating area, a huge bed with very large flat screen TV, an amazing kitchen area with a dishwasher, and a nice bathroom.
My loves: Free Breakfast in the morning, Free wireless, Keycard access to go on other floors, Overall price per night..BEYOND Amazing. You definitely get more than what you pay for, and the staff is very lovely and helpful!
Dislikes: the only thing I didn’t like was the price of parking! Lol. It was quite steep, but it was worth it, it was after the winter storm and the leftover snow had take up all the parking. Im sure in the warmer times street parking is easier to find.

Stayed here with a group of 12 in 6 rooms while visiting Washington DC and Mt. Vernon. Very reasonable rates for a very new hotel. Large and clean rooms with a very helpful staff, especially the front desk . Great free shuttle to metro or Old Town Alexandria. Very nice free hot breakfast buffet, not a huge selection, but what they had was more than adequate to start the day off right. Perfect quiet location if you want to stay outside of DC.

We stayed at a B&B for our anniversary, then switched here two days later for our last three nights, next time we will stay here our whole trip. Right next to subway, Excellent hot and cold breakfast and a heavy appetizers M-F evening all comp. Walk to lots of dinning and the imax, great old town. Service was wonderful. Full kitchen, alarm with ipod connection. The only downside is the extra $15 a day for parking but it is in a covered garage and they provide a shuttle to many places close by. I would probably take the train into DC next time or park at the theater for free (I didn't actually try this to see if it works).

I was here on vacation with my daughter who was on business and her 3-year-old. We had a fabulous time from beginning to end. The room was spacious and very clean, with a full kitchen. The staff of this hotel are amazing and knew our names on the second day. They recommended the perfect restaurant and the shuttle service was great. The drivers were helpful and full of information. My granddaughter had a menagerie of stuffed animals and dolls which the chambermaids arranged on the bed each day, much to our delight. I will ALWAYS stay here when traveling to DC!! Be aware that your GPS may send you in the wrong direction on Mill Rd, so check the directions before you leave home!!

We loved this hotel. It is off the beaten path from Old Town Alexandria, but we actually liked that. The room was very large and bright, and clean. I loved the kitchen. The gym was amazing, one of the best I have seen in a hotel like this. The only downside I would say is that is is a short walk to a metro, not bad, but we didn't use the free shuttle. The only other complaint is that we couldn't get it cool enough in the room. It seemed to stay at about 72 degrees the whole time no matter what, and to sleep we like it a bit cooler.
