Residence Inn Alexandria Old Town South at Carlyle

Reviewed 26 April 2012

This was my first time in this hotel. I usually frequent the Residence in on Duke Street. Never again. This hotel has the Duke St. location beat hands down. The staff is much nicer and more accomodating. The rooms are of a much better quality than the Duke Street location - which are typical cheap Northern Virginia construction like most of the apartments, condos and new homes in the area (cheap appliances, paper thin walls, doors made out of beaver board, etc.). The location is very good - a 5-10 minute walk to the Eisenhower Metro and at least 10 good restaurant and bars within 10 minutes. Yet it is in a quiet location in Carlyle - as long as you don't get a room next to the metro tracks (yes - like the Blues Brothers). To avoid that, ask for a room at or above floor 6 or on the street side below 6 and you will be fine. This will be my hotel of choice when I visit DC. If you get a chance, take a 12 minute walk and dine at Brabo on King St. A bit expensive but wonderfully executed food.

A truly fabulous stay ... my daughter and I spent two nights here during a get-away weekend and everything was perfect. Accommodations, location, service, breakfast (unbelievable) ... EVERYTHING! I hope to return with all three of my daughters at Christmas-time!

Comfortable, clean, modern, spacious living room, bedroom, & kitchenette.  One of the *best* RI breakfasts. (It's a mystery how RI serves near identical- ingredient breakfasts across the brand, yet some  breakfasts taste markedly better (at some hotels) than others. (Perhaps it's each chef's/cook's special touch.)

Healthy breakfast options, but evening meals are not up to breakfast standards. (The only negative to this otherwise ideal RI.)

Rows of new washer/dryers in laundry room. 

Rows of modern exercise equipment overlooking the commuter train; can be thrilling as train roars by.

Two modern computers & printer with seating at lobby.

Convenient underground parking ($18).

Good location. (Great view of George Washington Masonic Temple.)

A RI you're sad to leave.

This is a family friendly hotel minus the swimming pool. They have a nice shuttle to bring you to the metro which will take you basically anyway in the area. Staff is very friendly and quick to assist if you need something.
