“Long Term Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

First I must say that the staff, Marcus B, Marcus, Audrey and the manager Kyle were very accommodating to my family. We had a long term stay due to relocation and were very nervous about living in the hotel for an extended period, but our fears were quickly alleviated. The hotel was clean and neat at all times. The staff mentioned above were always friendly and kind. We will stay at this hotel anytime that we are in the area. Thank you from the Oliver family.

I came here to visit with my girlfriend and we couldn't belive how outstanding this hotel was. I mean from the friendly staff upon check-in to the cleanliness of the room, i would never stay anywhere else. The staff made it thier concern to take care of any small requests i had, especially the one employee named, Kyle, he went above and beyond his everyday job stature to make me feel comfortable. Now i know that i have a home away from when i travel.

Room Tip: Any room you pick will satisfy you.

We stayed at this Candlewood Suites in November. This was our first stay at Candlewood Suites type of chain which caters to business market. The desk guy was not professionally dressed. There was not adequate hot water in the showers, especially in the morning reaching the 3rd floor. No cream available in the room, for coffee. Utensils left over in the dishwasher. No one at the desk around 10 am, we had to leave the keys and left. I don't think I want to eat frozen food for breakfast and meals. Overall it is a low cost room decor and furnishings. No body lotion, exhaust fan in the bath. I will not stay at this chain again.

This hotel is clean and very comfortable. The staff are always willing to help and go out of their way to make sure you are satisfied and have everything you need. It is convenient to Mt. Vernon Estate, Ft. Belvoir and close to Old Town Alexandria. There is a bus right outside the hotel that takes you directly to the Metro. The hotel is clean and I would recommend to anyone for either business travel or vacation travel.

This property is newER, but feels and looks BRAND new! I was absolutely blown away when I entered into my room and saw how fresh, modern and clean it was. I have not one single complaint. This is definitely the hotel to book if traveling to the area-best bang for your buck! I will definitely be staying again!

I love this place. DVD lending library, free use of laundry machines, on-your-honor snack shop, and well appointed suites. Awesome staff. The manager on duty, Kyle, resolved a problem that was totally my fault.

The only downside for me, which is huge, is that it is six miles from the metro. So I had to change hotels after the weekend to shorten my commute into the district.

The hotel is a minute from Belvoir and the perfection location for being near work.The staff is fantastic and goes above and beyond to assist! Danielle always helped us get cleaning service as needed. Special thanks to Irine for assisting with the delivery of our car (that arrived before we did) and to Kyle for holding our mail during our move. Great people, great customer service!
