“Great hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

Very friendly and helpful staff. We stayed 2 nights on a weekend, and the prices were very low. Good value for your money. The hotel is quite isolated, in the middle of nowhere in Alexandria. Takes a while to get to DC, but it's not so bad. Rooms are great. We had a room with 2 queen size beds and a sofa bed. The 3 kids shared the 2 queen beds and we used the sofa bed. There was some dull noise from the outside - the room faces the Metro rail yard, but we slept well nevertheless. The breakfast is very good - rich and there's plenty of places to sit - inside or outside on the terrace. Good shuttle service to the nearest Metro station.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that does not face the Metro rail yard.

We stayed four nights here on a vacation trip to DC. King suite facing the Metro railyard on the 4th floor. I'd read some reviews talking about the noise from the railyard, but with my iPod playing a thunderstorm loop on the iPhone dock/clock, never heard a thing and slept sound. Nice variety of breakfast available in the mornings, kept well-stocked and cleaned, and the free shuttle for the Metro station was normally prompt on drop-off and pick-up. Internet connection (I used the wired) was very speedy and reliable, comfy bed, spotless clean room. My only gripe would be the small selection of nearby restaurants for dinner... one can only eat so many sandwiches in a week.

Room Tip: Some rooms face the Metro railyard, other side faces the I-495 Beltway.

This is one of the best midrange hotels that I have ever stayed in. The decor of the rooms is beautiful. Very contemporary, lots of clean lines and very zen like. We were there on a Saturday and it was very nice and quiet. Lots of restaurants in the area and we were able to get Chinese delivery. The lobby sells bottled wine and beer as well as the usual soft drinks and water. This was a lovely surprise as we had had a long day and wanted to relax. A glass of wine without having to drive out for it was lovely. Customer service is great, beds are super comfortable. I really wouldn't consider the room a "suite" however. But the room is nicely laid out with great use of space. There are not 2 separate rooms which is what I consider a suite hotel. But very nice nonetheless.

Room Tip: I also get high room floors so we were on the top floor. Extremely quiet, even though there is a maj...

I like Marriott properties. This was an OK stay, but next time I'll probably look for something a little different.

It wasn't that the hotel or the service was bad. It's just it's location isn't great. It is located between the Beltway and the area where they service the Metro trains. Our room faced the Metro trains. Both mornings, we were awakened about 6 a.m., and the trains were prepared for the day. It's not exactly like a rooster.

We had one minor problem the first day. I returned to my room at 3 p.m. (we left at 8 a.m.) and found it had not been cleaned. I wanted to relax in the room, and watch a football game. I ended up leaving before my game was over.

There was another "problem," but it involved people staying there. About 10:30 p.m., some middle schoolers, who were there for some sort of hockey tournament or game, decided it would be OK to set up goals in the hallway and play hockey in the hall. Some parents are just braindead stupid to allow things like this. Anyway, we called, and the hotel staff took care of it.

Again, the hotel was good, the service was great. We want something a little less noisy at 6 a.m.

Room Tip: You have two choices: Metro train center or interstate. You just can't win.

Greetings! Thank you for your feedback. The hotel offers a complimentary shuttle service that can drop off and pick up guests at local restaurants and business with in a five mile radius. The shuttle also goes to the Eisenhower Metro station which can take you directly into Washington D.C. If you are a light sleeper I would suggest a room on the parking lot side of the hotel that does not face the metro repair station. You cannot hear any noise from the station on the parking lot side. We hope to see you again soon!

Good location, easy access to Arlington and DC. Rooms are comfy and clean with frigs and microwaves. Self serve breakfast is included, which is adequate, in a nicely appointed area. Staff was friendly and helpful. Plenty of parking. Could not ask for more for this price. Always a fan of Marriott properties, this place did not disappoint.

I stayed September 24th for one night in a King Bedded room. Very helpful front desk staff, and FREE car parking, FREE WIFI in the rooms and lobby AND FREE breakfast. Good location on Eisenhower Ave near the Alexandria Old Town, Duke Street shopping area. 15 minutes drive in to Union Station in DC, and 20 minutes to Potomac Mills Malls. 5 minutes to Kingstowne shops or Landmark mall. 15 minutes drive toTysons Corner. Laundry room with coin operated washing machine and clothes dryer. Very quiet rooms, with non smoking policy throughout the hotel. You need a car when staying at this hotel as it is not within walking distance to the Metro, but if you have a car, then this hotel is ideal. Would highly recommend it. Plenty of European and US guests when I stayed here.

Room Tip: Laudry room is just off the lobby near the 'free coffee station'

We booked this hotel for our quick visit to DC on our way to Florida. As a family the first thing that we discovered (because I didn't do my homework) was that the hotel does not have a pool. This is a deal breaker normally for my family travels but alas we were close to DC and the benefits associated with the location offset the lack of a pool. Upon arrival, we were very quickly greeted by the friendly front desk associates, including one who immediately stopped midway through balancing his cash to serve us and when I offered to wait he immediately said "oh, no that's not necessary you're more important" and that was great! The front desk folks were ready and willing to assist with directions and advice on local restaurants, etc. We found the room comfortable and very clean. We were pleased with the selection at breakfast and impressed with the staff working in that general area. The hotel itself is very nice and modern and feels more business like than family friendly but they certainly dealt well with the children just the same. If I were there on business I would definitely stay again, however, the lack of a pool would send me up the road to the other Springhill Suites.
