I stayed one night at Courtyard Alexandria for a business trip. Once I arrived, parking was great, the staff was very welcoming, and the lobby was actually active with people at the bar or just hanging out with friends, etc. The check in process was very quick which was great after a long day of traveling and work. The room was clean, spacious, and had all of the amenities I was looking for. Microwave, coffee machine, and the refrigerator were great to have. The location was great as there were many restaurants and stores within walking distance or a few minutes drive.
I had a hard time finding the place initially because it's behind other businesses and fast food restaurants. But after driving around the area for a while, I finally found access to the hotel. A sign from the street saying "enter here for Courtyard Marriott" might have been helpful.
