Visited D.C. Area and found this hotel to be conveniently located and reasonably priced. Amenities are what we've come to expect from Marriott. Quality of rooms is very good. Extra security by requiring room card to access elevators. Breakfast Buffet good.

I was there for a couple of days in October for a business trip and enjoyed my stay. The breakfast was really good and the staff and services is what I expect from a Marriott property.

We stayed one night on our way to Williamsburg. Check in was very smooth. Make sure you check in before you park in the garage. You need your key to open the gate. Very secure.

Very friendly, welcoming, and comfortable Residence Inn. Our room was spotless and included the amenities expected of a Residence. It was a 5 minute walk to the Metro and very convenient to D.C. - a 20 minute ride to the Archives at rush hour. When we come back to Alexandria this Residence is first consideration for our stay.
