“Still a great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Stayed here for two more visits over the past month. It is still tops. The staff is remarkably helpful and courteous. On the first visit I had a great deal of trouble with the internet connection. They helped solve it; but the next visit, the front desk remembered, and without being asked, comped me with free parking.
BTW, no problem with internet on the second visit.

This is nicely located withihn walking distance of King Street shopping in Old Town, and 4 blocks from the Metro Station. We used the Metro to easily get in and out of DC. There is a free trolly that runs regularly on King Street to take you to the water front. The hotel also has a free shuttle, so be sure to inquire about its availability. The rooms come with a free hot breakfast that is more than adequate and plentiful. The hotel facilities are very nice, and the rooms spacious and quiet. Only minor comment is that the furniture & appointments are showing wear and tear and should soon have a makeover. However, i would highly recommend this hotel as a very reasonable for the location.

Room Tip: Away from elevators

We travel to the greater DC area several times a year and are never disappointed with our stay. The staff is awesome, the location is perfect with the metro and access to great restaurants close by. I highly recommend this hotel.

Just spent the weekend in Old Town Alexandria! I have stayed at many of the properties in and around Old Town, but always come back to this hotel! Spacious rooms, friendly and helpful staff, great location, nice breakfast, secure parking, and overall a well maintained property. All for a reasonable rate. This time we did have a problem with the room's heating system. Cindy and the other front desk staff were so accomodating at rectifying the problem. Invariably issues will come up when you stay at hotels. It's how the staff responds that I find the most telling of a hotel's character. Although I have never had an issue at this hotel before, it was great to see that when one develops, the staff responds so nicely.

The hotel was exactly what I expected from Residence Inn. I had a very comfortable and quiet room. The design of the breakfast/dinner area is the best I've experienced of any I've seen. I hate being right on top of someone when trying to prepare and enjoy my meal but this hotel makes the experience enjoyable. Very spacious and well laid out. The staff goes out of their way to make you feel like family. From the housekeepers to maintenance staff. Katie at the front desk was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The hotel is not in the heart of Old Town but they offer a free shuttle or you can catch the trolley (also free) or walk to the waterfront in less than 15 minutes. No complaints here.

Room Tip: As for an end room. They are the corner 1 bedroom suites.

Great hotel close to King Street. The staff, as usual for the Marriott, was outstanding and could not have been nicer. We stayed here for 5 nights as we were moving from Alexandria. Fantastic place to stay with kids

My family spent one night here last spring, overall a fine place to stay. The hotel met our basic needs, was clean and the staff was courteous.
We selected the hotel because of the proximity to Mount Vernon, was in Old Town and that it offered laundry facilities. Very easy drive to and from Mount Vernon, the worst part of the drive being the hotel parking garage. The website provides the max vertical clearance, but not horizontal! Spaces are tiny and turns are tight, and whatever you do, take the first space you see, there are no larger spaces!
The Waterfront is a long distance away, forget thinking you will enjoy the scenery on a leisurely stroll to the Waterfront, you can take the hotel shuttle. Once it drops you, do your walking and take in the architecture/scenery, your feet and kids will thank you. Take advantage of the trolley to get home, but know your stop and let the driver know your stop because they don't stop at every stop.
We had a one bedroom suite, nice and quiet. Our view was of a cemetery, one would expect that side of the building to be quiet.
Nice, large laundry room. Plenty of washers and dryers. There was a tv and a couple of tables with chairs while you waited on your clothes.
I gave the location an average because of the distance to the Waterfront.
