*sigh* i love washington suites!! everytime i go it feels like home. the rooms are apartments and o so cozy. the staff is always nice, the shuttle is accessible and easy to get from the train station. this hotel has alot of ppl from different parts of the world..india to be exact. sometimes while at this hotel ive worn some pretty revealing clothing. the muslims have a praying room in the hotel and some how my room always manges to be right across from the praying room. when i come out in a revealing outfit the muslims usually run or start praying really loud. it CRACKS ME UP and scares me at the same time..all in all this is my favorite apartment/hotel to stay

Room Tip: the best room to me is room 208 :)

This hotel had 4 star bedding in a 3 star room and 2 star carpeting and furnituure. I look forward to the day hotels replace carpeting with engineered flooring. The suite is very large.. The kitchen was spotless. Only the carpeting, furniture, and decor (could definitely use some paint) seemed out of place with the other amenities. The hotel needs to invest in some odor removing air freshener as there was a strong curry smell when you walk down the eight floor hallway. That being said, I would highly recommend this hotel to families. We loved that we had the kitchen but did not have to make breakfast as it was free. We enjoyed the waffles. We loved the free shuttle to and from the metro. The shuttle will even take you to the grocery store. Regarding the metro, having been on many european metro's, I was dissapointed in the ticketing system, it can be so much simpler, but otherwise the metro was excellent. Regarding Washington, where can you see so many high quality forms of free entertainment (Smithsonian, The monuments, ...ect). With the high cost of travelling, this can be a less expensive yet very memorable vacation.

Thank you for your comments. Our suites are spacious and the staff works hard to provide a clean environment as well. Families do enjoy the free deluxe continental breakfast with the make your own waffle station and Caribou coffee. The waffles are addictive if I say so myself.

The large kitchens are a cost savings for any family. Whether you choose to cook meals in your suite or just use the refrigerator and microwave, it is a cost savings over buying every meal and every beverage outside the hotel. We also offer a shuttle service to three local grocery stores as well.

Washington DC is a wonderful city to visit. It is also one of the more economical places to visit. All of the Smithsonian Museums, the National Gallery of Art, the US Capitol, the National Zoo and all the monuments and more are all free to get into.

Thank you again for your comments and we hope to see you on your next visit.

Thank you for your kind words. I am Mylar that you have enjoyed your visits to the Washington Suites. One of the nice amenities for an all suite hotel is a restaurant. The food in the the Lounge is very good and the prices are excellent. They are open from 11am to midnight. One of the guests' favorite is their homemade pizza and their Pork Cubano sandwich. If you can eat a whole Club Sandwich platter you are really hunger.

Thank you for your comments and I will pass them on to the team at the Lounge.

Dear Chris C,

Thank you for your comments about the hotel. Our location is convenient to DC, Old Town, Mount Vernon, Fort Belvoir and more. We are centrally located to most everywhere you need to be. Our free shuttle provides service to the Van Dorm Metro Station which makes travelling the Washington DC Capital Region a breeze.

The Lounge Restaurant is a hidden gem within the hotel. The food is good and the prices are great. The Chicken Wrap is one of my favorites (I substitute fried chicken for the grilled) and the Cubano - a ham, cheese, pulled pork BBQ and pickle on pressed bread. The BBQ sauce is spicy and nice unexpected twist.

Thank you again for your review and I will pass on your comments to the staff and the Lounge Restaurant.

Sincerely,

Mike Barber

The Lounge at the Washington Suites has a great atmosphere, 12-15 TV's to watch your favorite team, and a Menu that will satisfy everyone. Just recently remodeled with new furniture providing the latest in comfort and affordability, it's an experience that everyone will enjoy. Very clean with great people and would never hesitate to go there whenever we are in town. We would highly reccommend The Lounge to all looking for a relaxing time and enjoying great food.

Dear Nevin S,

Your are correct, the Lounge Restaurant is the best kept secret in Alexandria. Under new management and with a new look, this restaurant will surprise you. The menu offers homemade Mac and Cheese - yum and the best seared Tuna salad I have had in a long time. There is something for everyone and it will not break the bank.

During the various sports seasons, this is the place to be. With 9 big screen TV's your favorite team will most likely be playing. They offer a full service bar for the beer, wine and mixed beverage drinker.

Thank you again for your review.
