My husband and I just got back from our 3 night stay at the Residence Inn in Alexandria, over Memorial Day weekend. We loved this hotel. We got a great deal of only $104 per night through the hotel website with our Marriott Rewards number (regular rate was still very good at $139/night), and were very impressed with what we got for our money. We stayed in a Studio Suite, with a Queen bed, full-size fridge, microwave, dishwasher, cooktop, full service dinner/cookware, dining table etc.. The room was really large and both the room and bathroom were very clean and nice.
The staff was really nice as well, always saying hello and helping when we needed it. The front lobby had a computer and printer we could use, as well as a computer kiosk with local dining/shopping/tourist information available.
The breakfast was totally awesome. It was much more than the usual Continental-sytle breakfast. Each day there were bagels, toast, English muffins, doughnuts, cereal, oatmeal, yogurt, fruit, and waffle mix (for the waffle iron) available as well as some hot items, like eggs, pancakes and sausage, and juice, milk and coffee.
Parking was an additional $15 per day, but that still put our hotel rate at a much lower cost than most of the other hotels in the area, especially at this quality. The parking garage was covered and gated, so was very safe. We felt safe at all times in the hotel as well.
We drove to Mt. Vernon from here, which was an easy 15 min drive. For sightseeing around Alexandria, we walked- everything in Old Town was within walking distance. It was about 1 mile (20 mins) to the water, and King Street (with all the shops and restaurants you can imagine available) was only a few blocks over. We never did try the free King St Trolley, we preferred to walk everywhere, but we did see it going by quite frequently.
Overall, we were very impressed with this hotel and would definitely stay there again.
