“Great location, great hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2012

This hotel was excellent. The location was perfect close to the Metro but far enough away to get out of the rush and close to a Trolly stop which made it easy to shop and explore in Alexandria. We used the hotel shuttle a couple of times that worked well also. Very quiet location. Our room was great and breakfast was more than I expected. Something for everyone. The staff was super friendly and very helpful. Every time I asked for something they more than delivered. This hotel is family friendly. I would defiantly stay here the next time I visit this area.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2012

We stayed for a weekend. We were very impressed with the staff, as they were friendly and kind. The room was comfortable albeit on the small side compared to other Residence Inn locations I have visited. Parking is available for a daily fee. The hotel has a very nice breakfast area which we used in the evenings a couple times. The price was reasonable for a holiday weekend. Pool hours were limited due primarily to the city's (or county's) requirement of a certified lifeguard to be present.

The best aspect of the hotel to me is the location. It is a reasonable walk (5 minutes) to the Metro, adjacent to a Whole Foods Market, and steps away from the Alexandria historic area.

We had a wonderful stay at this hotel. The price was very reasonable, especially for three people in a room. There was a comfortable sofa bed, a nice kitchen and bath,free wi-fi, and the breakfast was great. All the employees who even just passed us in the hallway were friendly and appeared to enjoy their work.

We stayed 4 nights in the Middle of May 2012. We had a great experience, Luckily we checked in on a thursday so we were able to take advantage of the evening social. They have a different theme each night M-Th. It was an excellent location. So close to the metro which we were on every day, parked the car and never used it. Hotel is just steps from Whole Foods, which we used for a great dinner when we were just too tired to primp for a dinner out. Our room was so clean, I'd give it a 9. the living room sofa and recliner were just barely a little worn, but still in very good shape. the kitchen was a 10. Wi-fi worked great too. We did have a little trouble with the AC, it worked fine, but it got a little frosty on the coils. It had time to thaw while we were out for the day, so we were never uncomforable, and we like it chilly. We would stay there again without hesitation. Laporta's restaurant, just next door was excellent. Great jazz trio on Fri nights. I had scallops, hubby had beef. All delicious. go meet Coco, the piano dog.

This was our second stay over Memorial Weekend but our travel group has been here three years in a row. We are all Harley Riders going to the Rolling Thunder Demonstration. The parking was clean and safe for motorcycles.. The clean well appointed room were comfortable even though we had a queen size bed and though we were getti g a king. They even provided pop corn. Breakfast was plentiful from oatmeal to eggs or waffles. Plenty of heathy options. The shuttle driver was prompt and very helpful. The staff was the same as last year and That's says the personnel are happy. Overall I look for to our. Ext visit.

Stayed here at least four times. Always a nice experience.
I considered deducting a star because desk would not send number of blankets requested.
Breakfast is plentiful.
