My husband and I recently stayed at the Residence Inn in Old Town Alexandria for a long weekend. This hotel is very nice, clean, and the breakfast buffet was fresh every morning. Upon arrival, the check in process was smooth and the staff were friendly and extremely helpful. She answered all of our questions, provided maps, and explained how to...

Thank you for taking the time to provide me with such a great variety of feedback on my hotel. As smooth and extremely helpful the front desk was for you, I do regret that they were remiss in mentioning the easy few block walking access of many restaurant selections just a 5 minute walk from the hotel. Additionally, we do...

I've spent the past several months at the Marriott and have nothing but good things to say about the facility, the staff, the food and the super location.

Chose this hotel due to proximity of my daughters apartment. The location to the Eisenhower metro is great, an easy 2 block walk. I would jump on and off the metro at all times of the day and night.

I stayed here on business due to the proximity to the metro stop. While I was somewhat concerned reading other reviews on this site, I found the hotel to be in a perfectly safe area (literally 1 block from the US Attorney and 2 blocks from the US Courthouse). The best metro option is the Yellow line, exiting at Eisenhower,...

Thank you for the great compliment on my staff and food. That Chicken Afritada dish is a personal recipe of our Chef and it is only available here at our hotel exclusively.
