Stayed two nights, wife wanted to see a performance at the Folger theater in DC. Close to Metro station, so getting around was easy. Saw the Scottish Walk parade in Old Town, great time. The Hotel is a suites hotel, so we had a kitchenette, which we made little use of, but it's nice to have. My only complaint is...

Visited D.C. Area and found this hotel to be conveniently located and reasonably priced. Amenities are what we've come to expect from Marriott. Quality of rooms is very good. Extra security by requiring room card to access elevators. Breakfast Buffet good.

I was there for a couple of days in October for a business trip and enjoyed my stay. The breakfast was really good and the staff and services is what I expect from a Marriott property. It was very close to the Metro so going to and from locations like King Street or the airport was great.. Uber drivers cover...

We stayed one night on our way to Williamsburg. Check in was very smooth. Make sure you check in before you park in the garage. You need your key to open the gate. Very secure. Our room was spacious and comfortable. Our check out was quick and Phillip at the front desk was very helpful. Even printing driving instructions to...

Too bad I was only in for a night - the rooms are traditional residence inn rooms - with kitchenette and full size fridge, stovetop and microwave. Once you leave your room you are in a traditional hotel layout. Downstairs in the lobby they have a good breakfast and happy hour, with the night I was there it was catered....

Very friendly, welcoming, and comfortable Residence Inn. Our room was spotless and included the amenities expected of a Residence. It was a 5 minute walk to the Metro and very convenient to D.C. - a 20 minute ride to the Archives at rush hour. When we come back to Alexandria this Residence is first consideration for our stay.

I woke up thins morning and realized this was probably one of the most quiet hotels I have been in, in a long while. I didn't hear neighboring rooms or hallway noise. Perfect for me. The staff was fantastic. Check in was super smooth and I really appreciated the recommendations from the desk staff. The room was a typical Residence...

Dear homeinseak, I am glad you enjoyed our very quiet rooms. Much of the quiet you experienced is courtesy of our state of the art airport grade sound proof windows we have installed.

Very disappointing property. My room was musty and had a very bad odor. It smelled like a cat had stayed in the room recently. The couch was dirty as well. I am also very disappointed in the front desk staff. I have a problem with my bill and no one cared or would try to fix the problem. I was...
