“Close to Metro and King Street restaurants and shoppes.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2012

Stayed three nights at the Residence Inn over the MLK weekend. We chose this hotel for the close proximity to the DC Metro King Street stop-a quick 5 minute walk. The hotel is two blocks off of King Street for an easy walk to many shops and restaurants. Hotel offers a shuttle or you can hop on the free Old Towne trolley that makes frequent stops up and down King Street.

We had a very comfortable one bedroom suite that included a full kitchen. Breakfast is offered each morning, but the evening social is only Mondays-Thursdays. Breakfast was an extensive buffet of hot and cold items such as cereal, yogurt, eggs, waffles, fruits, bagels, etc...Coffee is offered all day long. Free Washington Post and USA Today newspapers.

Front desk and staff were very friendly and helpful. Parking is onsite for $18 a day-a deal compared to other hotels nearby.
We will most definitely stay at this hotel again when visiting Alexandria.

The employees are very nice and the hotel itself if good...What is buried in their website and not published on the itinerary is a 150.00 per stay pet fee...Now, i could understand if your staying 1 week, 1 month (because it is an extended stay hotel) then 150.00 is reasonable....But, if your staying 1 night...that fee is 3 times what any other pet friendly hotel in the area are charging....

Shame on me for not checking thoroughly on their website (buried 3 levels deep) but, I wanted to alert others that may fall into the same situation.

Had a great stay with free breakfast buffet each day and free happy hour/light dinner on weekdays. Cozy and clean suite with ammenities in a room facing towards Duke street. Friendly staff, too. Convenient to King St Metro station - 2 city blocks away. Convenient to Old Town shops and restaurants too. Whole Foods 1 block away to stock the fridge! Hitch a ride on the King Street Trolley (free) to explore.

I had to stop in Alexandria due to an auto accident on Hwy 301. I was told to try and find a hotel outside of Old Town because Old Town would be too expensive. Well, all the hotels were fully booked. (This was 3 days before New Years!) So, I was forced to go into old town and try to find something. I drove into the Residence Inn-Marriott and thought it would be over the top expensive. The hotel appeared new, the lobby is inviting with marble floors, a cozy fireplace area with TV, and a good sized breakfast/happy hour area. Price: under $140. That is soooo reasonable for being in the heart of old town. Breakfast is a full on buffet and the Happy Hour has a full meal! You really don't need to eat out at all! And this is all included in the price. Oh, I forgot, you also get 2 drinks included in the Happy Hour.
Location: One block from the Metro which takes you any where you want to go. You are only a few blocks stroll to the water front, too. It is a wonderful historic walk.

Room Tip: There are 3 elevators, so any floor is ok. Parking and excercize room are on the 2nd floor, so it p...
