Everything in the room was damp including my clothes. Pool never open. Bar restaurant closed most of the day. Front desk employees were snobs. (Most of them). We did complain to the management the day we left.

Helpful and friendly staff, breakfast was great. Lots in the area to see all in walking distance. Room was clean and the gym has bikes, Treadmills, elliptical, and pool (closed right now because of weather). Easy access to metro with shuttle. I would stay here again.

Sure - it is a bit away from the big attractions of the capitol but - theres a free bus that takes you do the busy downtown alexandria, and anotherer that takes you to the airport for a 100 yard walk to the Metro, a MTR that delivers you at the Smithsonian for just under 2 dollars. Immediately around the... More

The front end staff was very helpful. The hotel is in a great location to see the rustic views of the Alexandria area. Near the airport and they have great shuttle service. The 1st morning breakfast was not up to standards but they opened up the buffet on Sunday and it was good.

There was a broken handicapped hotel entrance door, mold on our suite's air vents, ripped chair cushion in our living room, tortuous sleep sofa, dangerous broken electrical outlets in living room, torn curtain in bedroom, clogged bathroom sink, smallest bathroom I've ever seen in a hotel and an overall drab outdated look throughout the entire hotel.

The hotel itself was pretty basic, I was a little worried that they allowed pets so I called to see if pets were only allowed in certain areas because I have pet allergies. I was told that pets were allowed in any room but I was relieved that I saw no pet hair and the room was very clean and... More
