“perfect stay for family of 6”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We had a 2 bedroom, the room was nice and clean and the kitchen was well stocked. The location can't be beat, a five minute walk to the Metro (Costco is only a few stops away). The nearby whole foods was an easy dinner option.
Exercise room was in good condition and it was safe and easy to go running right out the front door.
We had tons of luggage and were early so they were very accomodating in holding our luggage until our room was ready.
The only negative thing we experienced was one crabby staff person who brought the towels to us midweek after housekeeping was "closed" but we had requested a towel change before we set out for the day.
The cold water and lemonade in the lobby when we got home in the afternoons was a nice touch.
We were also disappointed our kids (ages 12 and 9) couldn't participate in the kids activities (even movie night) without an adult present in the room with them.

Room Tip: We enjoyed looking out towards D.C. and could see the Washington Monument lit up at night but there...

We reserved 4 suites to accommodate ourselves, our children and all the grandchildren. We parked our cars and never had to use them again til we left. The Metro station was a couple minutes away, and the Old Town Trolley was also near by. The units were all in excellent condition and we had plenty of room for everyone.

Room Tip: Our rooms had a view of the George Washington Masonic Temple - great lit up at night.

Great location. Across the street from the metro trains. Their is a free trolley to take you down King St. to shops and restaurants by the pier. Property was clean and staff friendly. Don't expect to check in early at this property because it is usually always booked. I know most people don't like the timeshare presentation, but we were done in less than an hour and received a $75 Amex gift card. I told the salesperson we purchased our Wyndham timeshare on the resale market and I just recently purchased another one on ebay, she didn't even want to waste her time trying to sell me anything. We used the train to go everywhere. If you plan on being there a week, I would suggest you purchase a weekly pass for trains. After taking the train we walked to the Capital, Smithsonian museums, Holocaust museum, Jefferson memorial, Lincoln memorial, MLK memorial, Roosevelt memorial, Korean memorial, and Arlington cemetery, took us two days to see everything. The only tour we paid for was to George Washington's home in Mt. Vernon, we took a boat cruise (bought tickets on groupons for half price). The only negative for this whole vacation and it was BIG because of the weather! The resort doesn't have a swimming pool. Overall, we had a excellent vacation, loved DC, we will definitely be back to this resort.

Room Tip: Request a high floor facing Kings Street to avoid the train noise.

I love Wyndham properties and this one was just a beautiful as the rest. The hotel is on King Street in Old Town Alexandria and it was beautiful. It is perfectly located next to the metro and there is a free trolley that takes you to all the restaurants and shops along the way all the way to the waterfront. AND the parking was free for the week. It was great. The only thing I didn't like was how persistent the timeshare sales people were. They called all day and even knocked on our door a few times.

Room Tip: I would recommend you stay here.

The location is amazing. A very short walk from the Metro system and a short walk to the Trolley and bus lines. I was concerned by the sound of trains before we got there from other reviews but those people must have been extremely light sleepers with excellant hearing. I only heard two trains the entire time I was in the room. The rooms are large and clean and you can get new towels anytime all you have to do is ask. Friendly helpful staff anytime you have questions. Would definately stay here again. Alexanderia is a clean and safe town from what we saw along King street. The only negatives were weak internet signal, small parking spaces and no pool. We knew about the pool going in so no big deal.

Room Tip: We were in a two bedroom on the 7th floor.

If you don't want to stay in DC, this is where you want to be! Just a half block to the Metro station and 1 block from Amtrak, you can get to and from anywhere with ease! They area is a mecca of restaurants, bars and shops that are safe to walk to all evening. My only complaint about the neighborhood, is that nearby restaurants cater more to an adult palate than a teenagers so we had delivery pizza 2 nights during the week we were there! Although our room faced the Metro tracks, the windows are so well insulated you couldn't hear the trains. The 1 bedroom deluxe was perfect for my husband, our 15 year grandson and I. The rooms are large with a comfy king bed in the bedroom and a not so comfy queen sofa sleeper in the living room (our grandson is such a sport about sleeping on uncomfortable sofa sleepers), there is plenty of closet space, two bathroom sink (which makes getting ready in the morning so much nicer) and the dining table seats 6.
Staff is pleasant but in spite of them stating on arrival that they no longer have sales people who want to discuss your Wyndham ownership, they called us everyday to invite us to "update our information". I don't understand why timeshare places can't let us enjoy our vacation! We've already paid them a ton of money for ownership and we pay monthly dues. Enough is enough!
We will definitely return to this location.

Yes, I've come to expect a lot from Wyndham, and this property doesn't disappoint. I do think they need better signage, though, as the entry faces an inner courtyard that is not obvious. We ended up coming in through the sales office, and they said some folks end up going to the Hilton. That said, the room was extremely comfortable, and we enjoyed the jetted tub after long days of sightseeing. The double-pane windows eliminate most of the noise from the trains and Metro. (I enjoyed looking out at them, though, as I'm a big train buff.) No laundry in the room, and only one washing machine, so be aware you might have to wait for availability to get your laundry done, as we did.
With our rooms literally right across the street from the Metro, we quickly adapted to taking it everywhere (get a weekly Metro pass, it's worth it!). Amtrak is a block away, and we also took advantage of it to get to Baltimore. The free trolly will take you down to the waterfront and places in between, but be aware that it stops running at 10 pm, and we walked 16 blocks back one night. Alexandria is a historical delight, and you should also definitely go the the George Washington Masonic Monument at the top of town.
Nell at the concierge station was an absolute doll, and steered us to great places. Go to the Chart House and take advantage of the chocolate volcano dessert for Wyndham guests! The view from the special window table is great!

Room Tip: Unless you're a train buff, you want a room on the side opposite the Metro/Amtrak station.
