Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 December 2013

The room was spacious and clean. It was like home with full kitchens pull out sofa beds and internet access. The complementary breakfast buffet was pretty good with plenty of choices. I enjoyed shopping and went sightseeing in Old Town Alexandria. The ideal place to stay if you are looking to save money as the price is reasonable compared to other hotels in the area. The staff were attentive and I was well taken care of. There was also pay and park facility. Comfortable hotel and will stay here again.;

I have stayed over a hundred nights this year with Marriott properties, so feel rather qualified to judge the chain. This RI excels across the board.

The location is very convenient to the Metro, Amtrak, and Reagan National. I used to drive into DC, and have started using the trains and staying here. It's a short three blocks to the trains, easy even in cold weather. I kind of get my fill of eating out, so with Whole Foods a block away, I get everything I need to eat in and eat healthy.

The dining area is quite large, plenty of room for everyone to enjoy the good breakfasts and the happy hours. While I missed my workout (for like the 3rd year in a row) I did pass by the fitness center with my beer, and it seems quite extensive.

The staff is very friendly and helpful. They always make sure you are up to speed on all their amenities and take care of any special requests.

This is my new favorite hotel in the area.

Stayed here for three nights for a family reunion for the Scottish Walk in Old Towne Alexandria. Rooms were fantastic, classic apartment style rooms with full kitchens and extra "living" space with a large TV. Guest service was fantastic, and fantastic to have the complimentary shuttle considering the weather we had for the weekend. Breakfast was better than average with multiple hot items and always a great spread of muffins, bagels, cereal and waffle bar. Appreciated the complimentary coffee / tea in the lobby during the chilly afternoons. Would definitely return given the price and all the little "extras" that you got.

Room Tip: Rooms on the outer walls of the hotel have a better layout

Greatly enjoyed my stay here over Thanksgiving holiday. Nice rooms. Nice breakfast. Reasonable price. It was very convenient to be so close to a metro station. Dinners are even provided some nights of the week. Look forward to returning to this place!

I stayed two nights for business, very impressed with the facility, new and convenient to Metro, Amtrak, Wholefoods market, and a short drive or long walk to old town. Very clean modern rooms, quite comfortable. Breakfast was typical of a residence inn, generic but it sustains and is crowded. Breakfast room closes at 9 on a weekday in the am for late risers. Hotel has a good gym and laundry facilities on premises. There is a shuttle to get your around and plenty of nearby dining and links ot public transportation.

We stayed just one night, but the staff we encountered were all friendly. There's a Whole Foods just down the street if you want to stock up your room. There was a bit more noise from the HVAC (heat kicking on/running, but it worked as white noise), and plumbing noise from either the adjoining or room above, than I would have expected.

Hello Redwhine21224. Thank you for taking the time to share some of your feedback from your recent stay with us. I am happy to hear that our location and our friendly staff here at the Hotel helped make your stay more enjoyable. Also, I can rest assured you found some delicious food offerings at the Whole Foods just down the street. As a member of the Marriott family, we want every guest to have an issue free, comfortable stay. This being the case, I do want to apologize for the noise coming from your in-room HVAC unit and the adjoining room plumbing. These two items will be addressed with our Engineering team so we can work to address and mitigate future issues.

Thank you again for sharing your experiences and we hope you will join us again in the future.

Regards,

Edwin P.

This hotel is the best! We arrived early and were warmly greeted and given our room without any problem. The staff was so friendly, especially Mike Wilson, the general manager. We were treated to a special Thanksgiving dinner with turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce, green beans. roll and pumpkin pie our first night there. Mike remembered our name, even though we only chatted for a few minutes as he brought us glasses of complimentary wine and pumpkin pie after this spectacular dinner! Our room was spacious, and more importantly, very clean. Housekeeping gave us extra coffee upon request for our stay. It was raining, so the free shuttle van took us to the metro station a block or so away. This is the only place we would stay when we are in Alexandria.

Room Tip: We had a room that was sort of facing a courtyard area and not the street, so it was very quiet.

Thank you for the review and kind words about our hotel. I enjoyed meeting you both during our Home Away from Home Thanksgiving Dinner. A tradition that started when we fed troops staying with us while on deployment has lasted now for 10 years!

Your review is very special to me personally. Please let me know when you will stay with us again. I would love the chance to say hello to you again.
