Very nice, comfortable hotel.

We were very pleased with our stay at Residence Inn. All staff were very friendly and helpful, especially the young lady at the desk. We arrived early from the auto train and she promptly checked us in. The room was very nice with a view of the city. The bed was really comfortable. There was a happy hour in the evening with beer, wine soft drinks and snacks. There was a nice breakfast in the morning. I would definitely stay here again.

don't get a room on the side near the metro train.

Pros: It's conveniently located. The staff was friendly, the room was clean, spacious and well appointed.
Cons: Maybe giving earplugs to those who are in rooms on the side of the hotel nearest the train.
Location: It's walking distance to the metro and they have a shuttle to Old Town Alexandria, where there are a number of restaurants and shops.
While I really liked the hotel overall (the room was very spacious for the money), when the the metro train started running at some point in the morning, I was unable to sleep. I was on the 11th floor, several floors above the train, but it still kept me up.

Close to Old Town

The staff at this hotel could not have been more accommodating. The free shuttle to Old Town and the metro was nice. The suite was large and comfortable. The free breakfast was typical hotel breakfast fare - scrambled eggs, oatmeal, cereal, fruit, breads and waffles.

Residence Inn Alexandria Old Town, Va. : Flawless!

Pros: Location, spotless inside and out, not too costly (bundled thru Travelocity), great breakfast with plenty of hot and cold healthy options, STAFF !
Cons: How do you improve on perfection? Let me stay longer :-)
Location: Perfect location, located within short walking distance from Hoffman Building.
There aren't enough positive adjectives to describe how I was received and assisted on this overnight stay. Warm smiles, professionals, respectful, caring. Tremendously knowledgeable about the services and surrounding areas. I will be calling upon the Shuttle service when I come back. Thank you Pam for making me feel so welcomed !

The hotel was AMAZING!!!

Pros: Free breakfast
It was a great central location in Alexandria. We had 2 different Metro stations we could choose from to walk to, or they had a shuttle that would drive us to them if we didn't want to walk. Old Town Alexandria wasn't that far either, considering that EVERYTHING in that area (meaning D.C. as well) is a walk for the most part. The included breakfast was great! Scrambled eggs, waffles, sausage, potatoes, water and juices. It was phenomenal for being FREE!!! Just all-around GREAT experience!

I loved my stay here.

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, Quiet
Cons: Nothing close, once in a while a metro train would pass by...
Frankly I was surprised that i got that kind of room for the price I did. lol! I'm sure they were doing a promotion even though I didn't ask. Originally It was supposed to be a two bedroom, but It turned out to be a complete suite with living room area, dining area and a small kitchenette, i almost prolonged my stay. The staff were very good at cleaning the room while you were out unless you put a sign at your door. All in all If I go back to the DC area, I will definitely get a room here again.
