“Excellent Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2014

I've stayed at many Marriott properties as a rewards member and told the desk staff as I was leaving that this place is among the best. Room was super clean and very large, staff was friendly and always asking to help. Its located just a few blocks from the great restaurants on King Street. It does not have a bar in the lobby, but has an amazing Jazz bar right next door with live music and is a great way to end the day. Free happy hour drinks which I have never seen and very comfortable. I would definitely stay here again.

My sweet husband combined work and a Valentine's/Anniversary weekend at the Residence Inn. As we were flying in, they were closing buildings, schools, and malls. So began our few days in Alexandria.
I always bring books to read and he brings his work, so a comfortable room is always good to have. While we are sort of stuck in the room, we can go downstairs and visit the store for snacks, if needed.
We always enjoy the breakfasts at the Inn, there is always a lot of food to start your day with.
You are also within walking distance from the Metro. And there is always the pool and exercise room in the hotel to use while you are here.
The hotel has a shuttle and we used it at night to go to some of the restaurants that were open during the snowstorm.
We love staying here and we also really like the people working there.

Hotel is located about a block from the King Street Metro station in Alexandria. Typical Marriott Residence Inn offering suites and large rooms. Suites provide a separate living/kitchen area with a small cooktop and refrigerator. Very clean and well appointed with a comfortable queen bed. I believe this property does not offer king beds. So, be sure to ask when making your reservation. Comes with a complimentary breakfast buffet and a light dinner "social" buffet Mondays through Wednesdays. Within walking distance of Old Town Alexandria.

Room Tip: Try the rear of the hotel that overlooks the Alexandria National Cemetery. There are 8 floors. Rec...

From booking through to check out I was impressed with the Residence Inn. I travel a lot for work and wrote to the manager before I arrived advising him of my early arrival (0730) and requesting if an early check-in was possible. I immediately received a friendly email response. I was able to check in early (which after traveling for 30+ hours is a big thing). The hotel was clean, safe and located close to Duke St Metro (4 minutes walking). The staff were friendly and professional. The included breakfast was more than adequate. The rooms were well suited to a longer stay and were clean, very comfortable and quiet. I will definitely be staying again. Usually I stay downtown in DC but the slight inconvenience of not being downtown was more than compensated by price, service, friendliness, access to Metro.

Great hotel for the price and nice staff. Close to the metro and rooms were nice. The gym equipment was a little used, but their selection of equipment and weights was not bad for that price point. I stayed there for a week and did not have any trouble.

Comfortable rooms, great staff, great location. When I can't get into the King Street Hilton, this is the place to stay. The Residence Inn is only a couple of blocks from the King Street Metro and backs up the historic Alexandria National Cemetery (and great place for a historical walk). The rooms are really comfortable and spacious, a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the river on a high floor
