Candlewood Suites Alexandria - Fort Belvoir
Ranked #34 of 54 Hotels in Alexandria
Reviewed 5 December 2012

I come to Fort Belvoir and the DC area quite often for work but did not know there was a Candlewood Suites nearby. I found this one and will definitely be back when I am in the area. My room was fantastic - clean, spacious, very well laid out for business. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. I knew the stay would be good when I checked in. Rita at the front desk was awesome; she could tell I was tired from the trip and did everything to make me feel welcome and appreciated. All hotels should have a "Rita" at the front desk!

Room Tip: I was in 201 and it was sound proof...did not know anyone else was around or anyone was outside.

Stayed at the hotel while recuperating from surgery and had a wonderful experience there. The hotel is extremely clean. The cleaning staff was so friendly and helpful to us. The front desk woman actually helped me to the room because I couldn't walk very well. And when we needed things that couldn't be reached in the kitchen, they came to help. And one cleaning person helped us with our bags to the car as we left. Couldn't have asked for a nicer place. Would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: All rooms are good but the end room on the top floor is the quietest : )

I have been staying here on and off since the hotel opened. I keep returning to this hotel due to the superior staff and service. When you check in ask for Audrey or Rita they both have the best customer service I have encountered in a while, they are always Customer First. A new manager is on board and his attitude is what does the customer need to return. They hired a trained staff from the start so they seem to have avoided growing pains. I have several more trips planned in the near future and so far I have already booked one. So come meet the best customer service Audrey and Rita are there to make your stay worth it.

Room Tip: 3rd floor south facing has the best sun and to keep the drapes open no one can look in but you can e...

I checked into the hotel and was greeted by an EXTREMELY professional, pleasant and happy receptionist....Ms. Audrey. She is clearly someone who loves her work and is very great at it!

I stayed at this hotel because the rooms have a full kitchen. The hotel is new and the rooms have plenty of desk space. The beds are comfortable and the linens are clean. The laundry room is free which is nice if you are there for a long period and the gym has a few treadmills and an elliptical machine along with a few other pieces of equipment. The staff is helpful and friendly.
