We had a mixed experience at this Marriott.

Location wise, this is a great choice due to it's proximity to D.C. attractions and very close to Old Town part of Alexandria, so you can just go there for dinner as opposed to dealing with downtown D.C.

Another positive note, the pool had a life guard on duty, which is a nice touch for any issues.

Now for the negatives, the property itself is very close to the road, which is a very busy one, with that, we heard several times a night police, fire and ambulances passing by. Our room was on the front side, so maybe having a room on the backside could help with that.

Right next door is the Holiday Inn, I would believe there setup would have the same issue as well with road noise, as would be the Hampton Inn down the road.

In addition, the property seems to be very nice, with that, its very shocking the poor quality of the small details.

The bathroom door could NOT be locked, due to the fact that the latch does NOT line up with the door jamb. This is clearly a build issue, poor quality.

But very new looking in appearance. We had our young children with us, so this small detail is quite annoying since the kids can barge into the bathroom as they please.

Another small detail, the down spout of the shower was not perfectly plumb up and down. It was possibly 15 degree off to the left, didn't make it work any less, but just poor in appearance since everything else appears NEW.

One last fixable thing, during breakfast hours, maybe the staff can put out temporary tables so that guest have places to eat, otherwise many families were waiting for tables to be freed up. This is a D.C. area property, so I'd imagine the hotel is quite busy often with tourist traffic.

Otherwise, the staff was very pleasant and they did greeted me as a "Silver" member and the hotel IS a great location due to its proximity to the D.C. attractions. But it is in the small details that were quite disappointing for a newer property.

The Holiday Inn next door and Hampton Inn down the road would give all the same positive's mentioned above, not sure about the details of the hotel itself though.

Hope this helps anyone planning on taking their family to D.C.

Room Tip: Lots of road nice if your room is towards the front, may help to get a room on the backside.

We stayed here for 6 nights in early April. The hotel staff was great, very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. The shuttle to the Metro was great and the Metro is so much easier than trying to drive and park in the DC area. Close to tons of restaurants and shopping (for the bits and pieces I forgot to pack). Mount Vernon was 20 mins away and well worth the trip. The included breakfast was basic but filling; could have used a bit more variety (1 day had a great bacon, but the other 5 had turkey sausage). The pool was nice and the lifeguard most helpful. The room was more than comfortable and spacious for myself, hubby, and our 10 yr old son. The mini-fridge and microwave were great for a quick snack or soda. The only complaint I had is there was no place a person could sit outside and enjoy the day after walking all day. We got a great rate and will stay here again when in the DC area.

This is definitely one of the cleaner and bigger ones that I have been to when staying around the DC area. 400 square feet with very comfortable beds. Very quiet neighborhood and plenty of parking, Breakfast selection is very good though I would pass on the scrambled eggs. The elevator was down but quickly fixed over the Easter weekend. Fairly convenient to the Mall area. Very good price for the amenities.

Would definitely stay here again!

This hotel is one of the newer ones, is conveniently located off the highway. Offers free parking, free wireless, ok breakfast. very clean.i believe there is also a shuttle to the train station if u need one. we rented a car, as it was easier to explore the city that way.

I've stayed in Washington many times and have consistently disregarded the SpringHill Suites for something closer to Old Town or the National Mall. Well, this trip I had no choice at the SpringHill Suites and man was I impressed. The rooms are very spacious and modern, beds are extremely comfortable, and the staff are top notch. If you're willing to stay outside of town a few miles I would highly recommend this hotel as it's still close enough to all the attractions with less traffic. The only downside to this hotel was the breakfast. Although it was free,it was also terrible. The sausage was dried out and the eggs (pretty sure they were powdered eggs) were cold. Luckily, they had some oatmeal to make up for the other stuff. But, if you don't like the breakfast there's always other places to go.

Room Tip: Don't expect too much for the hot breakfast but continental items (yogurt, cereal, etc.) are available.
