Courtyard Alexandria Old Town/Southwest

Reviewed 11 June 2017

On most trips to Alexandria, I stay at the Springhill Suites down the street. This weekend though, the Springhill was booked so I came to the Courtyard. I won't do so again. Parking is not adequate. No benefits associated with Gold membership (not even a bottle of water). Service in the cafe is SLOW - and unless you want coffee or an expensive egg sandwich, the breakfast offerings are very limited and expensive! Room is okay, though there was an odd odor when I walked in. Towels seem a bit threadbare and the hair dryer stopped working after only a few minutes. Freeway noise is noticeable unless the television is on. Overall - it's a third rate room and you can do better!

Room Tip: Stay away from the freeway side of the building

Hello Traveler,

Thank you for sharing your experience at our hotel, and thank you for allowing us to have you as our guest. I am very disappointed to hear you did not enjoy your stay. While Courtyards and SpringHill Suites have different offerings and cater to different types of customers, I can see that there are things we can work on to improve the experience our guests have with us. Hopefully, we will have an opportunity down the line to change your mind about our hotel.

My wife and I just completed our third stay at the Courtyard Marriott Alexandria Old town SW. We have family and friends in the area. The Courtyard Marriott hotels are our preferred lodging choice.

They provide excellent value with their clean, comfortable and attractive rooms, and offer many free amenities, like parking, local shuttle bus service, newspapers, computer access, gyms, large screen flat tv's in the rooms, lots of electric plugs to charge electronic devices, etc.

Upon our third visit to this hotel we were greeted warmly by the front desk staff who remembered us from prior visits. The front desk staff checked us in quickly and made sure we were happy with our room, attentive to our needs and requests.

They were always helpful answering our inquiries about local restaurants, and interesting places to visit.

I heartily recommend this hotel and this location in particular. If you are visiting Washington DC on business or pleasure, this location provides easy, quick access by car or the Metro.

The motel was fine in every way. What turned out less than pleasant was the people in the next room. They came in at 10:30 p.m. after we were asleep and turned on loud music. It woke us up and kept us up. The front desk was notified and they made a call. No results. I went down to talk to the front desk and to their great credit they went to the hallway outside the room to check it out. The music was loud in the hallway. They immediately knocked on the door and demanded the music be made quiet, it was disturbing the other guests. The occupants turned it down only enough to say they'd turned it down. The staff stood outside the door for a minute then knocked again, demanding the music be shut off so the other guests could sleep or action would be taken. Only then did we get a result. Then the staff asked me if we wanted to move to another room. Kudos to the great staff at this motel. Now to those out there who are so stupid as to believe the world revolves around them so they behave rudely and ignorantly to those around them, your not alone on the planet! Grow up!

This hotel is an acceptable option if you are in town for business and cannot afford to pay the tourist rates in the city while on business. It is near DCA and walking distance from the yellow line to get you into the city. They have a shuttle ( shared with nearby Springhill Suites) that will take you into Old Alexandria and the metro station. The hotel is an updated Courtyard with all of the amenities. There are no real restaurants in the area but there is a Starbucks near the train station. The rooms are adequate but the A/C was a little noisy when running. But it was tolerable for one night.

Hello Kimborkr,

Thank you for sharing your feedback from your time at our hotel. As you mentioned, our property was recently updated and features inviting spaces in the room as well as our lobby area. Our shuttle can also get you to a few local restaurants, and with the Metro close by you have access to even more locations for dining and sightseeing.

Hopefully this will not be your last visit to our hotel. We look forward to having you as our guest in the near future.

A typical, well run, well maintained, Courtyard away from the high prices of D.C. Excellent and very helpful staff. The Bistro was surprisingly very good. The food was unusually tasty for such a hotel operation. The shuttle to and from the Metro station was great with excellent drivers. The room was very comfortable with the great addition of a mini fridge. As usual, it was very clean and well run.
