“Great Staff, welcoming relaxing experience.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

This hotel is in a great location, easy walking distance from King Street sights. The staff was friendly and very helpful about directions and public transportation (Metro) information. Parking is very expensive, but weekend street parking is free of charge. Thankfully one of the hotel staff gave us that bit of information.

Nice, larger Residence Inn. Staff was very attentive. A tad off the main part of Alexandria so you can not walk to the main attractions/shopping but the price savings is worth it. Stayed in a one-bedroom suite with a nice size with kitchen. Work out facility was very well appointed with multiple cardio machines, free weights, smith machine, balls, etc. There was also a pool but we did not see it. Complimentary breakfast was plentiful and well organized. Parking is a bit tight and you have to pay for it. Would stay here again if in the area.

This hotel is not on King Street but is an easy walk to most restaurants and shops in Old Towne. Hotel was very clean and had very large rooms equipped for extended stays. Staff friendly and the breakfast had many choices. My wife and I normally stay at one of the Kimpton properties when visiting Old Towne but this hotel was a great value and accessible to most attractions. Would stay again.

Second week-long stay at this hotel. Wonderful staff and great location (easy walk to King Street Metro, which takes you to all the must-see sights). We are staying in a one bedroom unit, with full kitchen. The hotel offers a complementary breakfast and evening snack, so you would not have to eat out, unless you really wanted to. If you choose to cook in, Whole Foods is only two blocks away. Hotel shuttle takes you anywhere within a one mile radius.

Room Tip: Go for a one bedroom, instead of a studio.

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.
