“Outstanding Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

My wife and I stayed here for our visit to DC with another couple last week. Let me just say, within 30 minutes of being there we decided to add another day to the trip. The hotel is that good. We booked with Expedia and paid $89/night. An incredible bargain, especially considering how close it is to the Metro Station. Getting in to DC is a piece of cake. You can walk to the Metro, or just take the free shuttle (which runs until 10:45 PM, and is very timely).
The rooms are amazing. Very comfortable bed (choose your own pillow!), a sectional sofa, a desk with a floor to ceiling divider so if you need to work late you won't be bothering anyone, and the bathroom is split into two different rooms! One for a toilet and small sink, the other for the shower (great pressure and adjustable head) and large sink area.
There's no pool, and as far as I can tell that's the only downside.
The lobby is immense with comfortable furniture everywhere, and there's a really great free breakfast each morning. Tons of options to choose from. The staff is friendly and accommodating, and the shuttle drivers are clearly familiar with the area and are quick to pick you up or take you to the metro (special shout out to Armando, who was fantastic).

Very clean, well set up and friendly staff. If I tried real hard I could not find anything bad. I would sudjest that the fitness room be regularly attended to, there was nothing to wipe off the equipment after use, water was non-existant. so bring your own towel and water to work out. This is a great place to stay and would not hesitate to stay there again. Also very quiet had no issues on a Friday night. Just want to say thanks, it is hard to find a great hotel that doesn't kill the pocket book.

Room Tip: AAA discount is very usefull bring towels/water to workout

I've stayed here a couple of times now and the property is still brand new. The rooms are fresh, modern and nicely laid out. I used to stay at the Holiday Inn just down the street but this will be my new favorite. The staff were friendly and courteous all week and my room was fresh at the end of each day. The location is great with easy access to major highways and Metro. If I had to name one thing bad it would be the signage to find the place.

I was surprised to see that this is a Marriot hotel as this is a Very, Very basic trying hard to be more upmarket, it may look good but the rooms are small and look ok but quite cheap, basic finishings, bad, really bad breakfast, worse toaster ever seen in a hotel, personnel is pleasant but DO NOT accomodate anything, if you want overnight to rest your body it is ok but do not expect much.

I stayed here for 2 nights while interviewing in the DC area. I cannot say enough good about this hotel. I normally stay at the Residence Inn near Eisenhower or on Duke Street but needed a bit less expensive option this time. If I am up there again, I will definitely stay in this location. The staff were super friendly and helpful. The hotel common areas and my room were spotlessly clean. The cleaning ladies I saw in the hallway were friendly and helpful. The location is just slightly south of the Eisenhower Metro but super convenient to Alexandria and DC while still being in the affordable range. Parking and WiFi are free and that doesn't seem to ever happen anymore. Don't hesitate, book the hotel now!

I have stayed in this hotel the last two years and both times it was very clean and quiet. The free morning breakfast area is nice and spacious and the food is fine. Front desk are very nice. Its very easy to get to the metro from this hotel, just a minute or two down the street by car or they have a shuttle. Old town Alexandria is a few minutes drive and easy to get to.

We had a great seven night stay here during our family trip to DC. The shuttle was easy to use, the breakfast was adequate for our kids who are not accustomed to big breakfasts every morning, and our room was quiet (ask for a room not on the train side of the building). Our only concern was the lack of drawers in the room for us to unpack, but that may be due to our recieving a handicapped room. Lots of space and a great rate. We'd stay here again for sure!
