I will be staying here a month for work They’re extended stay room is very nice and spacious Staff was very kind and accommodating, breakfast is always fantastic, and the free Wednesday evening bar is amazing after a long day

To top it off, their cleaning staff literally cleaned my dishes for me the first time they cleaned my room! I’ve never had hotel staff do that for me…incredibly thoughtful, amazing service!

Jodie Hall

I have stayed here multiple times for family weddings within the area, this time I came with my boyfriend to visit my Mommom for my Birthday The room was extremely clean, the air conditioner made the room very cool, the bed was the best bed I’ve ever slept in at a hotel! The staff was friendly and helpful, and I’ve never slept better at a hotel Highly recommend!😊If you want to feel comfortable, stay here!

Erin Shick

The staff was the only redeeming part of this stay They were accommodating and friendly! Management needs to get its act together though! The indoor pool was closed (which was not disclosed when I made the reservation) and was really frustrating The sign said it was because of COVID but another Marriott property less than five minutes away had their indoor pool open

Everything in the room needed updating and the kitchen was very sparsely furnished We had to call the front desk for basically every pot or pan and the pans provided were way past their prime The room was only cleaned every fourth day (which was way too infrequently for our room/group size) and the one time it was cleaned it was cleaned poorly Oh, and did I mention we saw a mouse in our room on two seperate occasions? 🤮 I am embarrassed I booked this for my immediate and extended family My in laws had never stayed at a residence inn before and I am sure they never will again

I have absolutely nothing negative to say about this hotel This hotel “understood the assignment” when it came to true customer service Booked this hotel for my senior parents visiting from southern VA

Front desk, friendly, polite and smiled every – single – day They immediately, with no problems, upgraded my parents room to a studio because my dad was weary of staying on a floor above 3 The boxed breakfasts were nutritious, delicious and high in protein The hotel was spotless and smelled nice and fresh All hand sanitizer stations were filled and usable No hassle parking From the complementary bedroom slippers, to the bottled water, just and all around EXCEPTIONAL experience Great location My parents were very pleased and LOVED the comfortable bed They also felt very safe in the area I HIGHLY recommend this hotel, especially for seniors

Michael Gracey

I stayed for two nights (Friday/Saturday) to extend some work travel while taking advantage of a discount offered by the hotel Staff handled check-in courteously and expeditiously Complimentary parking was located in garage across from hotel (would have been nice to know on email confirmations)

My room happened to be in a corner on the second floor The room was predictably clean I appreciated a couple of small things such as complimentary bottled water, Malin&Goetz bath amenities, and a couple of books for reading if I was interested (I was not but appreciated the gesture) The bed and sofa both had firmer feels than other hotels at which I have stayed (Both were acceptable though and maybe understandable given their newness with the renovation) The shower design somehow encourages water to pool rather than drain, so I hope something can be done maintenance wise as they renovate Road noise is noticeable until midnight, so I would request a room at a higher floor and facing away from Lee HighwayPrices at first glance do not seem terribly unreasonable without the discount (hopefully they will stay reasonable after the renovations finish later this year) All in all the location proves a great reason to stay for a night or two and eat through Mosaic and surrounding restaurants within walking distance and movie watching at the Angelika One could feel good supporting a boutique hotel brand staying here

Jessica Kim

Excellent location and most importantly excellent hospitality The location was fantastic and accommodated our late check in request The room was in good condition and left a very nice gift basket for us to enjoy my promotion

This made this hotel outstanding I would love to visit this location again after their remodeling is complete Thank you so much for a wonderful experience

Pros:The breakfast provided was niceI had a studio room which was nice and large/comfyAbout 10 minutes from the Dock and King streetCons:1)The walls were thin (ceiling and room to room walls)2) Several of the outlets in the room did not work3)The employees are rude (Other reviews said this, but I figured it couldn’t be that bad well I was wrong)-They did not explain the amenities-When I asked about additional charges, my questions were dismissed/ disregarded So make sure you are watching the charges they place on your card! It was more than just a hold charge-When I asked for a receipt, the front desk employee waved his hand in my face basically telling me to leave4)The parking is $32 per night (with in and out privileges), but the garage is creepy and looks like what you would see in a thriller movie where you’d get put in the trunk of a car The spaces are VERY tight and limited spaces

No other options around the hotel for parking except one where you have to pay each time you enter


Not well managed property Staff is slow and provides poor service Marriott needs to intervene

The gym has a sewer pipe leaking into a bucket splashing around for months Poor air flow in the rooms, the air conditioning unit doesn’t seem to come close to the setting and they allow pets so I find my breathing suffers here, I suppose from allergies The beds are a bit worn They replaced my towels and a large curly black hair was presented right on the front of the wash cloth, how niceThe breakfast is lame and unhealthy – all sugar and carbsThe gym is well equipped with weights which is really the only reason I have returned here but the plumbing leak I saw 3 months ago will keep me from coming back

Douglas Black

The good: fairly nice room with enough space and furniture for most needs Good location for Alexandria Breakfast is decent

The bad: they charge 32 dollars a night for parking Rooms are quite humid Wi-Fi is unsecured Hotel doesn’t allow legal firearms, so feels insecure

This is an adequate hotel, made exceptional by the quality of the staff here Without exception, the people who work at this hotel have been kind, helpful, efficient, polite, and good natured i mean, literally everybody — the people at the front desk who helped me track down my groceries, the woman who makes coffee in the morning, the housekeeping staff: everybody

there was some trash in the courtyard one morning, and by the time i got back to my room from letting the front desk know, it had already been removed Because i am the type of person who cares about being treated well by friendly people who are excellent at their jobs, i would come back to this hotel the next time i am in the area

Pat W.

Interesting place Has no free breakfast, but does offer reasonable made-to-order food selections in their Bistro My room was large and comfortable–but my first without a microwave

an inconvenience as I was staying there for 2 weeks Staff seemed friendly The location was very good for me, and there was a ‘deal’ on pricing which was welcome

Anne Fury

Our family was there to attend a funeral All the staff were so kind to us Sam and Jose at the front desk, Anna and Allen realized that this was not a holiday for us and they were gentle, sympathetic to our needs

We arrived Thursday, Feb 3 and checked out Sunday morning on Feb 6My daughter was staying at the Marriot a mile away with her dad and brother The guys had to check out on Saturday, so My daughter, who I didn’t want to be alone, was able to switch to the Courtyard with no extra charge I’m so pleased with the excellent customer serviceBy the way, the breakfasts were so good!Thanks to all of you for your concern and caring

What a terrible shame I had every intention of leaving a five star review for this hotel until my experience this morning with the general manager First let me start with the positive

The weekend crew is absolutely amazing Everyone is friendly and pleasant I had moved to Homewood after a horrendous stay at another hotel I was so relieved to finally rest in a spacious, clean hotel with exceptional service The front desk even helped to accommodate my aroma sensitivities The room also comes with membership to Golds Gym which was a great perk which I sadly was unable to use, but is a great option The front desk team even checked in the second day to see how everything was and it was fantastic The breakfast on the weekend was also really terrific with sweet potato fries along with the usual eggs and two choices of meat Also, there were numerous choices of breads, bagels, muffins, etc and a variety of fruit I didn’t actually eat much and looked forward to Monday Sadly, none of this was availableThe breakfast had one meat, only bagels and only “delicious” apples, which I abhor I found this odd, but ok…I will accept it Then, as I’m trying to relax with my rather limited breakfast, the general manager came over and started sweeping the floor near me…sweeping dust into the air and near my flip-flopped feet and naked legs When I commented that this was inappropriate, he simply said, “I’m sorry you were offended, but I needed to clean”1) At the time I came to breakfast, there was only one of fourteen tables occupied In other words, the place was almost empty There was ample time to clean2) Breakfast was closing in 20 minutes He could have waited until after I left3) I didn’t make the mess There was no reason to penalize me and force me to shower again because someone else made a mess at my feetI would normally keep this complaint internal and simply talk to management about the fact that this was unpleasant, but…Is this a major issue? No However, it shows an attitude of management putting their own needs to get their perceived job done above those of their customers, forgetting that their job is to service customers

Jeffry Feliz

Hilton hotels have been my go to for years The service is always good Not my most recent stay at this hotel

Probably one of my worst experiences at a hotelArrived at the hotel, “checked in” after a bit at the front desk, only to find out that I was mistakenly given access to a room with other tenants already occupying it We proceeded to exit the room and went back down to inform the front desk of what occurred Front Desk worked quickly to give me the keys to a new room thankfullyNext, we arrived at the hotel room and proceeded to get in the shower only to find out that the towels were soiled yellow by what appeared to be pee 2 out of the 4 towels in the hotel room were that way Same thing happened with the towels we got on Friday, at which point we decided to cut our trip short by one dayI called the Diamond Desk to see if I could check out a day early I was informed that since this stay was booked with my Hilton Points that I would lose them if we left early as they “Couldn’t” refund them I decided that staying another night was not worth it, and left even though it meant losing more than 70k points Left the hotel this morning without looking backIf you are thinking of becoming a Diamond Member, please don’t Its honestly not worth it based on this experience

Dillon Vautrin

This was possibly the best service I have ever experienced during a hotel stay The hotel staff really made my family feel welcome The front desk, manager and kitchen staff were all terrific

The pool and hot tub were clean The room was clean When a lot of other chains seem to be going downhill lately, our stay in Falls Church at the Hilton was refreshing I highly recommend staying here Thanks!

This an OK stay because when I booked my room way in advance, we were given a kind size suite We I checked in, we were given a double bed I was told because the hotel was “to capacity and because of the rate that was given

” They had to switch out three people because of their rate as well Never heard of that Susan M was very apologetic Once in the room, #229, we found it to be an ADA room with double beds, the shower head was broken and no washcloths Called the front desk told Susan the issues and requested another king size bed room for the next day The request was granted but still no washcloths in the King size room Susan M made our stay better Thanks Susan M for your assistance, emphathy and points

Nathalie Clarke

So disappointed with breakfast

no jelly, no cream cheese but plenty of salsa options So bagels, toast and muffins topped with salsa??? I’m confused No bacon, no sausage No Belgium waffles I thought I booked at a Marriot hotel! Had better breakfast at a Best Western Sleep-in, breakfast suckedunless you like salsa toast

Mindy Shilansky

Location was perfect for a family vacation to DC Two blocks from the Metro (blue line) and about a mile from the waterfront in Old Town So many great restaurants nearby and fun shopping

They do have a breakfast that we didn’t try ($15/person) but if you are going to DC, eat at the hotel your first day It’s just easier until you get your bearings They don’t clean the rooms every day, which is fine, but you do have to be proactive about asking for towels and to get the trash emptied if you want that Their convenience store was woefully understocked so even though they have guest laundry on the second floor, I couldn’t use it because I couldn’t get soap Kind of a bummer The staff is very friendly and helpful Overall, I would definitely recommend this hotel if you are visiting DC Much cheaper than a DC hotel and you get to spend the evenings in Old Town Alexandria every night

Freespiriting xo.

I just wanted to first and foremost give the manager Joe a shout out!! There was an issue with a double charge for the room I booked, and this man went above and beyond to get it fixed and to show how apologetic he was that it happened It’s rare to come across employees/managers like him, and I just wanted him and the company know that he’s great and truly appreciated Because of you Joe whenever I’m in town, I’ll be staying here at this Hilton

Also, the rooms were clean and breakfast was great The location is perfect as well, it’s right across the street the a train station

Shontae Lashley

The accommodations were nice and what you would expect for a Hilton location My issue was with the billing, service and responsiveness of the manager After paying for my entire stay in advance via the Hilton app I was overcharged by the hotel who should have only charged me for parking

I expected a hold would be placed on my card for incidentals for $150, the hold ended up being $670 No one could explain why the hold was including what I had already paid for my 3 night stay along with the incidental deposit The entire hold finally released 5 days later but now I’ve been charged nearly $300 which is no where near what parking actually cost me I was told that this would be handled by the location manager on July 3rd and I would get a call from the manager I have yet to hear from anyone from the location nor have the charges been corrected Needless to say I will never stay at this location again I am also disappointed with Hilton Customer Care for their lack of support in this situation

Great hotel and amazing staff We stayed here for 2 weeks The hotel staff really cared, were so friendly, and very helpful

The restaurant has a great menu and the sushi chefs were superb The pool was very nice, and the gym had everything a person needs The hotel beds were very comfortable The staff that worked at the hotel marketplace were always so nice and friendly I highly recommend this hotel

Jasmine Hanonu

This is a beautiful hotel with amazing views and staff Price is very competitive The staff were very kind and welcoming

I only stayed one night, I checked in around 5pm and left at 8 the next morning, so because of my time restraints I chose not to go directly to staff to see if they could make things right The bathroom was not properly cleaned The sink had hair from a previous shave, and I had a towel that didn’t seem clean either We had a chaise in the room, but it had some stains on it I am hoping this was just a fluke, because I would love to stay again They also charge $17 for breakfast, but we left early to grab breakfast elsewhere If it were for the disappointment with cleanliness,this would have been an easy 5 star review

Tali Norby

It’s such a beautiful hotel with wonderful amenities, however, I have never had such terrible customer service When I first checked in, the receptionist was actually wonderful Checked in, went to my room, went to bed

I was then woken up at 5:30 am to the phone ringing I didn’t answer It rang a second time Still just waking up so I didn’t answer it in time Went back to bed Someone then started knocking on my door, yelling in my room saying “have you checked in?” Mind you, it is 5:30 am and I checked in the previous day at 4 pm for two nights I answer the door and the guy writes my name down and says I wasn’t reserved? So he took my name and said he’ll take care of it I go back to bed and my phone rings AGAIN and I answer it and no one is on the other end Then it rings YET AGAIN and I answer angrily, and they say “do you have a reservation?” To which I said my name and said I will head to the lobby I hang up and they called…again I didn’t answer and went straight to the front desk The receptionist then said “the last receptionist didn’t check you on all the way but I found your reservation and figured it out” and proceeded to give me a voucher for free breakfast For only that morning That I ultimately missed because I was woken up at 5:30 am and it took me a couple hours to fall back asleep after that No other explanation, and no other way to make it right in my eyes So so disappointed

I have to say that the front staff is very helpful and professional My original room was nice, updates bathroom and very clean I had a issue with the TV since it didn’t work at all

Matt the attendant on duty came and checked it out, once he noticed that the TV needed to have a maintenance call, he switched my room without issues, double checked to make sure all amenities were in working order and then delivered the new room keys to me My second room was the same from the first I was right by the elevator, but did t hear a thing, seems like the room are well insulated Bed was comfortable and the amenities were in point I’ll be here again for my next work trip, glad to know there is a great staff here

Samantha Oney

The rooms are comfy and stylish and the hotel was nice and clean Though we were disappointed that the pool was closed and the shuttle wasn’t running But the staff were all very helpful

The breakfast bar was especially delicious with lots of choices, all kept fully stocked and fresh by Miss Debora She was so kind and friendly and very helpful She made sure to chat with everyone and make sure we all had what we needed It was a great way to start the day

Stayed at this location for almost a week Wished they would of extended my stay but that didn’t happen The person that made my stay enjoyable was Deborah

Mornings were worth getting up early for breakfast She is such a kind warm caring person She was always making breakfast special Behind her mask was a smile Greeted everyone and made sure we all started our day with a full tummy and a word of encouragement Thank you so much for all your hard work She is a asset to your hotel

The only place we will stay Thanks to you all for allowing our big fur babies We always love our stay

Daniel Kuske

They claim this place has been renovated; if this is what a renovated hotel looks like I don’t think I’d want to book Tile grout doesn’t dry up and crack shortly after a remodel What their ACTUALLY trying to pass as a “remodel” is a change of wallpaper and appliances

I wish I could upload the video of the microwave hood combo which is supposed to be vented, but instead blows whatever your cooking directly into your face after hitting the cabinet above it Idk how THAT’s not illegal Idk why a $100 cheaper hotel can have near perfect construction and conditioning even post-2020 Post-2020 Marriott feels like a dying animal lashing out trying to prove it’s still alive to the industry, at least on the mid to lower price bracket Their hotels are rife with hardly-visible but critical construction issues and it feels like they are just whipping out the bandaids and praying for the best Book IHG for competence

Teena Ballet

Me and my husband stayed here for the Christmas holiday The hotel is a little old but we had a very nice room with a fireplace Location was perfect with lots of shopping and eating in the area

Front desk staff were very polite and the room was very clean The only complaint we had was we were on the third floor and the floor in the kitchen area felt like it was going to cave in Other than that, we had a wonderful time

I was informed upon check-in that despite having masks mandates in the state, the staff does not enforce it I also encountered several employees who did not wear a mask at all I saw a large group of guests convened in the check-in area, in front of the front desk and no one was wearing a mask

In addition, my room had a hard stain/residue next to the bed We also found what appeared to be pubic hair in the shower and near the sink Only reinforced the notion that the hotel is not taking cleaning seriously nor the pandemic, we are still in After sending photos and videos, I was comped a night and informed that housekeeping would come in and thoroughly clean the room Upon arrival back into the room, we found the carpet stain was removed but the hair remained I took additional photos and videos We are disgusted Despite the hotel being new construction, well laid out and comfortable furnishings, I am not at all confident that cleanliness and safety are a priority at this hotel Upon check out, I showed the front desk attendant the new photo and videos and she in a nice/nasty tone and attitude dismissed my concerns leaving a further bad taste in my mouth When we called down asking for a late checkout, she was nasty in how she rejected our request

Everything was absolutely perfect The rooms were large and clean and the beds were very comfortable The building is beautiful with an indoor pool but the very best part was the staff

They were very helpful and extremely pleasant and eager to assist Good breakfast in the morning I will definitely stay there again when I’m in that area I highly recommend them

We came up from the Virginia Beach area to see a Washington Commanders football game and stayed at this hotel The hotel was nice and clean, the breakfast food was good and several restaurants and Walmart close by but what made our stay superb was Andrew!!!! He checked us in efficiently as well as several other guests He was professional and courteous and very tentative to each guests

He was working alone and juggling calls, check-ins and grabbing extra sheets for guests This kid was incredible We checked in around 10pm and checked out 10am the next day and he was still there manning the front desk If I had my own business I would offer him a job for more pay because he is a stellar employee for SpringHill Suites He should be promoted ASAP! It’s because of him I would stay in the this same hotel again for the next game Sincerely, Dr Watkins

We stayed over the weekend at this Hotel Very nice

very clean and rates were very fair and affordableThe beds was comfortable, the bathroom was clean and there was plenty of towels The staff was very friendly and helpful with me and my family The only con that I can think of is I still haven’t received back my $6000 room deposit back yet and it was supposed to be credited back to my account upon check out

Paul Marquardt

Spent a week here recently The service was very good The bar service was great and food was quick and easy to order

The concierge lounge was very nice and I took full advantage of it for breakfast and late night snacks The only thing I would have changed would be adding the concierge lounge key to the digital key I ended up having to get a key card for that access separately It was an easy fix though and the front desk personnel were very helpful

Ryan Hurford

Titanium member This is a fantastic hotel with open spaces and clean rooms The staff are inviting and pleasant

They do have an open concierge lounge on the top floor It had hot eggs and bacon with the typical abbreviated breakfast items this morning Oatmeal, yogurt, juices, etc No charcuterie plate, but has enough to grab and go The bed was stellar and the shower/tub was spotless and well cared forHotel is quiet no matter which room you get, so that’s a big plus if you fly in late and need to sleep asap before the early rise, or if you have kiddos I definitely recommend!

We cannot say enough good things about the experience we had at this hotel We enjoyed speaking with Alfred, and were so very grateful for his hospitality Both Ann and Angel at the front desk were absolutely delightful in every way

Please be patient and kind to the staff as it seems they’re short staffed We had a wonderful stay, and were so happy and comfortable We will definitely return soon!

Hannah Gray

Great hotel for a drop in stay at on a road trip Rates are fair, Starbucks available in the morning, and front desk staff is very accommodating The hotel is clean and rooms appear to have undergone a recent renovation

The young man at the front desk that checked me in the late afternoon of 11/26 was wonderful I recommend staying here

Fort Belvoir is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever stayed The base is something out of a fairy tale post card Especially in the winter

When I went, it was snowing It was Absolutely stunning I’m begging the Man Upstairs to make this my next duty station Honestly? It reminds of gingerbread houses with icing on topStaybridge has suites with fully stocked kitchens and a little stove for you to cook if you need to It has a little bar with stools so that you can eat A fridge, microwave and nice cabinetryIt boasts an anesthetic you would want to see in your personal home The bathroom is perfect and they give you shampoo, conditioner and shower gel They smell soooooo goooood🤭If you need personal space, opt for the suite It’s worth the money The staff is excellent The workout room is well maintained and the grounds are well kept

Emma Snyder

My husband, our two dogs, and myself stayed here for about 2 weeks The staff is extremely friendly and accommodating, especially with our animals We had to move housekeeping around a couple times and they allowed us to do so

Our room was always spotless after housekeeping They even did our dishes for us The staff is just great here The amenities are good, including the business center and laundry room I would highly recommend staying here Our visit was completely stress free thanks to this hotel

I rarely write reviews but my husband and I just had a wonderful stay at the Lorien We only did 1 night but we wish we could have stayed longer The hotel was immaculate

The room was spacious, updated and clean Extremely comfortable We travel often btwn TX and NJ and this is a great , convenient pit stop I should also add that we are traveling with our dog and it’s a perfect walkable neighborhood

Cosette Livas

It was a bit overrated They charge for EVERYTHING, and really you can’t tell why For a Spa the TOWELS in the room were rough, the beds are NOT Queens they are Doubles, they only have double beds at the elevator and in adjoining rooms, I have request for neither and could not be accommodated

There were some staff that were very helpful and provided extras when asked, but for what we were paying we really shouldn’t have had to ask for enough towels etcThe location is great especially if weather it goodIf you Valet, look behind you if you don’t see him, they sitting in their car? (crazy) but they were able to get car to you when neededThe BEST part was the restaurant that is connected We did dinner thereTOP NOTCH, PRICEY BUT I WILL SAY WORTH IT The Mussels and the pastayummy David was the best waiter ever and we did see the value thereA friend recommended this place and he admitting stayed there years ago, he loved itbut when we told him our experiences, he said obviously they had changed management or ownershipWe even heard them charging a person for Early check in, the person walked up and said she was there, if room was available great, but if not she just wanted to leave info at desk for when ready, she was in a conference there the girl proceeded to check her in, says room is available and then addsthat will be 4500 early check in the guest was like wait, what, I said I would waitit’s crazy sneaky stuff like that, that really not goodOh and the Happy Hour wineis Woodbridgecome on give me something for the 2500 FEE you’ve tacked on

Kalea Brown

This review would have had more stars but upon check in the glasses in the room were very dirty Additionally when my boyfriend woke up the next morning we found a used condom by the side of the bed Totally unacceptable

The operations manager did call to explain how this is not up to standard etc which I did appreciate but just sucks It was my birthday and not how I wanted to spend the day Ended up checking out Unfortunate situation If you stay here please check the cleanliness of your rooms Front desk staff was very nice and pleasant Wish I had a better overall experience

Ms. Lewis

This hotel was amazing! My family and I stayed here over the weekend and we truly enjoyed this hotel Check-in was pretty quick Continental breakfast was available every morning

Food was pretty good Rooms were amazing! I had 3 King Suites (2 bedrooms) and all three were spotless Great location right across from the Metro station Also, there was a 2 hour reception every night that included 2 free drinks per person per day Very thoughtful! Lima was amazing, and even gifted a later check-out time due to traffic My only complaint was parking, but that was to be expected

Becky Coxson

Cocktail hour was great Room clean and comfy Staff very nice

Would have given 5 stars if trash cans in elevators has not been overflowing onto floor If you don’t have staff to empty cans don’t put them out Also have to ask if you want clean towels or room trash emptiedBreakfast buffet was well maintained

Justin S

Great stay over the 4th of July weekend! Although the hotel was very busy, they were extremely attentive to any need we had! Great included breakfast! They went the extra mile and reached out to offer a late checkout on our departure day…which helped us out immensely Great location to the train as well! Will stay again when visiting DC
