My husband and I are going to Williamsburg, but we plan to take a day to go see Mt. Vernon. This is the only site we plan on going to see while in the area; we've already done the whole D.C. thing on a previous trip.
We have enough Marriott points for a free night, so I'm looking at the following properties: Springhill Suites in Alexandria, Springhill Suites Tech Center, and Residence Inn at Carlyle. Does anyone have a recommendation and/or opinion on which might be best (or worst)? Since we're only going to Mt. Vernon, I'm looking for the one that will be the easiest commute and have something nearby for dinner before leaving in the morning. Obviously, I'd like it to be half-decent and clean, too!
Any opinions would be appreciated! Or if there are any other Marriott properties I've overlooked which would also be good options, please add those recommendations as well. Thanks!
