“Excellent.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

We stayed three nights last week in a delightful king suite. Everything about the room is great--bed, bathroom, sitting area, computer work station, just all really nice. Housekeeping was exceptional. All the staff at front desk were friendly and efficient. Breakfast was very good with a wide variety making it possible to find what you want. Free parking and internet are both nice things. Complementary shuttle to nearby Eisenhower Metro station was very nice, but there are also good sidewalks which make the .7 mile walk very easy if you wish to do that. After touring DC during the day it is just a ten minute drive from the hotel to Old Town Alexandria where there are many, many wonderful restaurants to choose from on King St. (There is a great parking garage on South Pitt St with a $2 maximum after 5:00pm. Don't drive round and round looking for a place on the street, just go to that garage and make your life much easier).

Driving to DC from the South, as we do, it is very easy to get to this hotel. We got what I feel was a very fair rate by booking through the Springhill Suites website. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Our room was on the Eisenhower Ave side of the building and the noise from trains was a little annoy...

This hotel worked perfectly for us. The shuttle to the Metro Station was always available when we needed it, even though it was a busy time. Breakfast was great, though sometimes understocked. The room size (King Suite) worked well for my husband, son, & myself. I can understand how the non-locking doors in the toliet & shower rooms would be problematic for families with older kids or friends traveling together, but it didn't present a problem for us. The free parking was wonderful and the front desk staff was courteous (though a little harried - again, we stayed during a very busy time). Our room was on the train side of the building, but the noise didn't bother us. (Full disclosure: we live near tracks at home so we're used to train noise.) We were more bothered by the noise of other guests' doors slamming late into the night and early in the morning. For some reason, the room doors were really heavy and quick to slam. We would definitely stay here again - the only major drawback was that there was no pool. But there's so much to do in the DC area, we didn't really miss it.

We went away for a girls weekend in DC and decided to stay here because the hotel touted a free shuttle to the Metro station. The hotel offers free parking and a continental breakfast was included which was decent but not anything delicious. Other complained about the sound but I didn't hear anything except the teenage band kids surrounding us. The doors are not insulated at all and you can hear everything in the halls. We called numerous times to complain. We finally had to go to the chaperone ourselves and then they quieted down. The next day they did add points to my reward card but it still was very annoying. Also the shuttle does not run after 10 and there are no cabs there. We luckily saw one as we were walking. The rooms were nice and the beds comfortable. We also liked that the shower is in a separate room from the bathroom.

Room Tip: I would ask for a top floor away from the train side.

Just a quick overnight and I was sold at this new property. Be aware it is not within walking distance to metro or any shops. Breakfast, fitness room, staff was great. Accomodations were clean, modern and very well thought out (great use of space) Looking forward to another stay in when visiting the DC metro area.

Room Tip: Room not facing I495 is best

Right off the beltway, free indoor parking, free breakfast, and free shuttle to the Metro and local restaurants. What more could one ask for? The breakfast is above par with separate stations for coffee, waffle making, and cereals, thus avoiding crowding. Used the shuttle several times. Never had to wait more than 5 minutes. Cleanliness was outstanding, both in the room and in public areas. I had to ask if the hotel was brand new. No, it's a couple of years old.

Wow what a wonderful hotel... the rooms are beautiful and very European. The beautiful use of glass is great. Swell hot breakfast too... JUST ONE THING.. Get a south facing room... the rooms on the north (ours) face a commuter train area. We heard trains all night..

Room Tip: Get a room on the south Side.

Thank you for your feedback! We apologize for the noise from the metro maintenance track across the street. We will ensure you receive a quiet room during your next stay. We typically recommend rooms at the end of the halls for light sleepers. Glad you enjoyed your visit!

The decor was very modern. The room was better than we expected, very comfortable and large. The staff were very nice and helpful. The pricing was excellent for the DC area. It is a short drive to Old Town for the shops and restaurants. The Metro (very user friendly) is a half mile away from the hotel but the hotel provides shuttle service. They should probably consider a second shuttle bus at peak time since it services another Marriot and local shops. A few times there were way too many folks who had to wait for the return of the van.
