“Consistent Marriott quality”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Got a one bedroom suite. Furnishings were modern, room was nice and clean. HDTV's in both the bedroom and living room, but no channels in HD. Vanity was outside the bathroom, which made it easy to get ready while my traveling companion used the shower.

Free breakfast was extensive: eggs, sausage, various forms of potato, biscuits, muffins, waffles, soda, and coffee. In addition, the waffle station had a lot of toppings to choose from: different fruits, syrups, whipped cream, and nuts. However, the quality of the breakfast was just "OK".

Parking was quite expensive in the very tight parking garage at $18/night. The entry was so tight that I nearly hit the buidling with the side of my car turning into the entrance. It was also a chore to perfectly position myself centrally into the parking spot and not hit one of the supporting pillars.

The staff was very pleasant and welcoming, always saying "hello".

Room Tip: Regarding parking: To save money, there is metered parking just west of the hotel around the Carlyle...

Two friends and I stayed at the Residence Inn in Alexandria for a girls' weekend. We wanted easy access to the Metro and a safe walkable area. This hotel offered both. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and had a nice kitchenette. It was an easy walk down to the Metro station and there were several good restaurants in that same area. They also had a pretty nice breakfast spread—the usual buffet and cold selections. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay there again.

Spent 3 nights with my family while we visited DC. Staff was very helpful, friendly and accommodating. Food was very good, shuttle service was quick, and they were glad to help with small details that we needed. Highly recommend this Residence Inn.

I was in the town for a major meeting and booked into an overflow hotel as I generally do, however I booked into the wrong Residence Inn so I was staying in Alexandria VA instead of the one in the Inner Harbor. The staff was very helpful and friendly, even while handing two group of students visiting the sights of the nat'l capitol. The hotel is two short blocks from the the King Street Metro and also the free Kings St. Trolley. The metro accesses all the major area of DC, the trolly gets you to the eateries and pubs in the historic district. I wished I could have stayed one day longer to taken in more of the sights. Great restarurant, LaPorta's, next door - thats another review.

This hotel is .3 of a mile from the metro station, so it was convenient for sightseeing in DC. One of the best features is a Whole Foods that is .1 of a mile up the street. We got a wonderful dinner and a bottle of wine from there one evening and took it back to enjoy in our room. After a long day of sightseeing, it was nice to get some great food and go back to the hotel and relax. Several times we stopped by there for snacks. The staff at the hotel were polite and efficient.

Really enjoyed my three nights at this hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the room was nice -- clean, quiet, spacious. Didn't try the dinners in the evenings, but breakfast was good. Location is also nice -- a five minute walk to the King St. Metro and about a mile walk to the shops/restaurants in Old Town. Given the traffic up and down King Street around dinner, the walk wasn't bad at all. No complaints here...

I have to echo what other reviewers are saying--great staff, clean rooms, nice breakfast and very convenient to Metro. We just spent over a week touring Washington DC and this hotel made our trip incredibly comfortable. King St. is fun to explore and the Whole Foods grocery is one block away. I highly recommend staying here!
