“Helpful staff, Close to Amtrak /Metro”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014

The Hilton is located on the corner, across the street from the Metro station. On the other side of the Metro station is the train station. Next to the Hilton is the Wyndham Old Town Alexandria (OTA). We had a car and OTA guests park in the Hilton parking lot (no charge). We flew into Dulles and rented the car at the airport. Most times we left the car in the parking lot and took the Metro into DC. We returned the car at the Reagan airport (which is right on the Metro line), took the Metro back to OTA, picked up our bags, walked to the train station and took Amtrak to NYC Penn station. Next time we're not getting a car.
We had a 1 bdrm which was part of a 2 bdrm lockoff. It was a corner unit, spacious and we didn't hear the people in the studio unit. My DD loved the popcorn that was available every day downstairs and I was happy that the "update" agent was not aggressively obnoxious as they sometimes are. The front desk was very helpful; when I needed directions, they printed out a map with directions. I called from the west coast to ask whether we could check in early because our flight was arriving in the early morning. The staff took my phone number, contacted housekeeping, and called me back to let me know that housekeeping would clean our unit as soon as possible so that the unit might be available. When we arrived our room was ready.
We will be back. Thank you OTA for a great trip.

Room Tip: This is not a high rise and so there are no "view rooms". If possible, ask for a corner r...

We stayed here for one week. The rooms were a typical Wyndham resort, which is to say, pretty nice. The staff was very nice. Unlike the other Wyndham's, there was no high pressure sales pitch which was greatly appreciated. The location is excellent. It's at the east end of the King Street strip, but there is a free trolley to take you anywhere you want on King Street. The Metro station is across the street, which makes it very convenient to go anywhere you want in DC. We hated to go home. There is so much to do in the area, and even with a week, we still didn't do everything we wanted. I really can't stress how much we enjoyed staying here! The only little negatives...no pool, and the parking garage is very tight. And unless you want to walk two blocks to Whole Foods (and pay $$$), you need to drive about 1.5 miles to a nice Giant grocery store on Duke street. Loved it, if you are thinking about going on a DC vacation, you need to stay here!

The staff was superb, friendly, helpful, and courteous. No pressure to listen to the sales pitch, although it was offered if you wanted to make an easy $100. The rooms were first rate and well equipped. The kitchen was well equipped to cook breakfasts while waiting for everyone to get ready for long days of sightseeing in DC. Free WiFi was fast as was the business center for printing return airline tickets. Alexandria's farmer's market on Saturday morning was very helpful to supplement the groceries brought for breakfast. The free washer and dryer on each floor helped reduce the need to carry excess laundry for the week. The 2 bedroom suite was perfect for visiting with friends and family who converged for a week's vacation.

OK I picked this location because it was close to Washington DC and Reagan National Airport and the Metro system. I was not disappointed. It was within a block of the King's Metro Station, which was the second stop from National Airport on the Yellow or Blue line. The hotel is located just off of King Street and very nice. The staff was pleasant. I did skip the timeshare and owner update meetings because I was here only one night. The standard one room (314) had a small dishwasher, full refrigerator, stove, and microwave. The kitchen was completed with a table and the living room with TV. The bedroom was a separate room, which was nice. Lots of eating establishment on King Street and the harbor boats and boat taxis were about 1.2 miles walk to the East on King Street. I will be returning to this property and future trips.

Dear Guest,

We are glad that you picked Wyndham Resort at Old Town Alexandria, for your one day visit, and that you had a good experience and that you decided to visit again! We sure have a strategic location that is a walking distance to King Street metro station, from that station there are direct lines "Blue and Yellow" to nation's capital Washington D.C., and as mentioned Reagan National Airport is the second stop on either line. Great public transportation covers Old Town area and connect you with the National Harbor on the other side of the Potomac River. I would also thank you for taking the time to write that detailed review, it is indeed valuable to our guests also for us, Resort's management teem. Thank you again, we're looking forward your next visit.

We stayed for 4 nights in 509. It is the large 1 Br lock off. The small unit was occupied, but we rarely heard a peep. I begged them to not bother us about the gifting update and they grudgingly obliged. We loved everything about the hotel(it really isn't a resort). It has a large TV room for watching TV or movies which they will gladly install. I slept through Gravity; probably because it is a lousy movie, but the large chair is very comfortable. We are seniors and went to the Old Town Transit Shop for the special price and help with the Metro card. We spent 2 days in DC and I think it cost us less than $20 for the train pass.
The $1 pie, free popcorn, salsa and chips, coffee, cookies, tea, comfortable sitting area, and much more were great after the long days walking around the National Mall. I parked the car and didn't move it until check out time. First time that has ever happened at a timeshare. In short, I couldn't find anything wrong with this Wyndham.
We shopped at Whole Foods which was close by. It is very expensive and mind boggling if you are used to Publix, Kroger, and Albertson's.

Room Tip: If you can choose, I would ask for a room on floor 4 to 7.

Imagine having a temporary stay apartment in the heart of Alexandria, VA, minutes from George Washington's Mt. Vernon, Washington, DC, the beautiful Potomac River, etc, etc. You can drive your car, ride the Metro, or hop on a free trolley to get around. It's the kind of place you return to again and again, so perfectly situated.

Our friends invited to a spend a long weekend at this resort...which turned out to be terrific!
The location is unbeatable, given that we took the train to and from Lynchburg. We got into DC without difficulty. The place was well kept, and the staff provided lots of flexibility when we got snowed in.

Room Tip: Book early.
