“Better than studio apartment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014 via mobile

The suite is larger than what we expected. It has spacious living room, bedroom and bathroom and a kitchenette. Although it is not very new it is well maintained and very clean. Unlike most of the hotels in Washington DC this hotel did not charge for parking and it takes only 10 minutes drive to Washington DC and 5 minutes drive to Fashion Centre at Pentagon City mall. Eatery such as TGI Friday's and MacDonald is within a walking distance. Delicious buffet breakfast is served every morning. I like the small office and the laundry facilities provided for the guests, it's very convenient.

The room was decent. They offered a free dinner with the accommodation, but the food for the most part wasn't great. Staff wasn't the best either, well, one of them. I witnessed a man getting food for his family while being taunted by the woman, who appears to be in charge of the food service staff. She kept questioning why he was taking so much food, advising him that he was being watched by the hotel management, which was a lie. She was getting a laugh at his expense, because he was a large gentleman and a pushover. Management wasn't paying attention to the amount of food he was taking, nor attention to her foolishness. I do want to mention that the rest of the staff was fine.

Staff - Very nice, professional and helpful.

Room - Good value for the price, large enough and was exactly as advertised.

Cleanliness - I would say there is room for improvement but overall good. While the bathroom was clean and all amenities were cleaned daily, they skipped vacuuming the floors. The carpets were dirty and it made the room smell a little odd. But the windows opened so I was able to air it out. There was a pen cap and a leaf on the floor when I arrived. 3 days later, they were still there so I picked them up and threw away. It was obvious they did not vacuum.
Food- the buffet was standard for this type of hotel/motel: fake eggs but real bacon and sausage, fresh fruit on the bar, cereal, coffee, waffel machine, large selection of 24 hr coffee tea etc, 3 juice selections each morning. But an added bonus, this property serves a dinner buffet nightly.

Extras - clean laundry room facilities with inexpensive washers and dryers, a pool table, a chess/checkers table, other family games upon request, a mini snack shop not just vending machines, fireplace with sitting area in the lobby for socializing, a deck and small pool outdoors in summer, and lots of cable channels to choose from (HBO and Showtime!).

Overall I would recommend this for long term business travelers and families.

Room Tip: They do have a handicap room but if its unavailable, ask for one on the 1st floor. While I would pr...

Stayed for 3 nights with my wife and 2 kids (8 and 6) for a trip to dc area attractions. The rooms were modern and clean. The kids enjoyed the breakfast, especially the waffles. I left my eyeglasses after check out and they promptly found them. If you have a car, this place is a no brainier.

We had a great visit with our daughter and son-in-law at the Homewood Suites in Alexandria! The double bedroom and bathroom suite was spacious and so comfortable, with a full kitchen. We never used the kitchen, though, b/c we were surprised with a very nice meal in the evening (Manager's Special) and also a complete breakfast. Great place for get-togethers!

This Homewood Suites appeared a bit dated, but the property was very clean and the staff was very friendly. It was quite a walk to get to a restaurant that wasn't fast food, but there is always a decent dinner that the hotel serves if you don't feel like a hike.

My wife and I were traveling home from a trip in FL back to NY and decided to stop with the kids for the night at a hotel. We went online while driving and she found this chain of hotels that has 3 of them within 10 miles of each other and called up. got the operator for the brand and she was extremely helpful with finding us a room in one of the 3 hotels since the first one was sold out. even asked if we had AAA for a discount and was greeted by the front desk with everything ready check in was under 2 mins and we were in the room within 5 mins. Clean, well taken care off rooms.
