Great experience!

We were hesitant with its 3-star review but we were thrilled with our actual experience. The hotel is in an incredible location - a block away from Whole Foods, an easy 5 minute walk to the Metro, and a short walk to King Street with great shops & restaurants. The hotel itself is kept very clean. It also offers complimentary breakfast and complimentary happy hour (on certain days). The room was huge and very clean. Couldn't be happier. Will definitely stay here again if/when we go back to DC. Thanks for everything!

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Do not pay for the shuttle from the airport (Reagan). There is a metro stop at the airport, and the walk from the metro stop near the hotel (King St) is so short, you'll save a lot of money (pending you don't have too much luggage you can't carry/roll yourself).

Great location for business or play

With the Metro and free trolley only a couple blocks away, this is a great way to see Alexandria and DC area. I took trolley to water taxi and got where I needed inexpensively and with an enjoyable boat trip. Staff were kind and hard-working and I enjoyed my 5 days there.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Taverna Cretekou is excellent Greek restaurant on King, only few blocks away. It felt like really being in Greece and outstanding combo plate for undecided or new to Greek food. Landini's farther down toward water was great Italian place that accommodated a party of 17 and had outstanding calimari!

Close to DC

Staff was exceedingly helpful during and after our stay. Breakfast was nice. Local restaurant recommendations were solid. Only minor issues with local transport shuttle and local offered transport to a from the airport (not really hotel's problem). Small pool but it was safe with a lifeguard on duty!

Avoid

This was probably the worst of Marriott Residence Inns that I have stayed in across the country. I was in Alexandria for a wedding, and after a very long drive in from NYC, I found the lack of efficiency and hospitality at the front desk to be very disappointing. To be sure, there are some excellent suites at this hotel, but the layout is very inconsistent. Suite 546 was beautiful and spacious, but ours, Suite 621 was easily the worst designed layout for a bedroom and kitchen efficiency that I have ever seen. Parking garage was exorbitant ($18) and poorly designed, breakfast was terrible, but at least free (you get what you pay for), but location was superb. Overall, a very mediocre Marriott. If you stay here, I strongly advise the larger suites, and don't be reluctant to insist on an upgrade. I wish we had.

Avoid "Notting Hill" on a Sunday evening. Very poor wait staff, although the portions were surprisingly generous.

Great Hotel in cental area

Great stay. Located in central area of Alexandria. This is a big plus, but also makes for heavy traffic and parking charges. The hotel is an excellent Residence Inn, which is one of my favorite chains. I will definitely stay there again, but if I didn't need a car, I would recommend using the Metro (only 2 blocks), the shuttle van for Alexandria and skip the rental car.

Great for local conferences

A very nice place to stay if you have local business or a conference in Alexandria. Their shuttle service is definitely a plus! I didn't have to move my car or deal with traffic. A very comfortable and clean room with lots of space to spread out. The staff I interacted with were cordial and helpful. The breakfast was good and had a wide varied selection each morning. The only drawback I have is price of room and parking but, it is the DC area so expect to pay more. Definitely would recommend it and would come back to stay again.

Very comfortable

The hotel staff was extremely professional and hospitable. Comfortable stay, not a lot of bells and whistles, but just what we were looking for at the time of our stay. Conveniently located near the metro and other restaurants in the area. Easy access to the main travel arteries. I would recommend acquiring a greater supply of the newspaper subscriptions for the guest. The papers were gone on Sunday morning we I attempted to retrieve it by 9am. Expanding the pool hours would be helpful as well. It was not an extravagant stay; however, it supplied the necessary comforts. The staff engineer was very helpful. He installed a television connector so my son would be able to play his video system. He was very cordial and made us feel welcomed. We will revisit this location for a future stay. P.S. Please put a pair of nut crackers in the kitchen drawer, it would have been very helpful while cracking open all of those crabs.

July Get Away

My wife and I took a short trip to DC for the long weekend and went on line to check for reasonable room rates. After some extensive research we felt the Residence Inn By Marriott Alexandria-Old Town would be our choice. Boy what a great decision. The room was a suite with kitchen and large living room area plus the king bed and full bathroom . Each morning a full breakfast buffet was included in the deal and this meal compared to $20.00 buffets at other locations. We were told they supplied snack items in the afternoon (monday-thursday) that could substitute for a lite lunch. Location near the Metro and Old Town made the need for a car much less necessary. Parking at hotel was $18.00/day so not having a car was not deal breaker.
