There were a few bump in the beginning, but they went the extra mile to make our family feel welcome! Marleen the bartender/server at the Bistro in the hotel was outstanding! She was out-of-bounds and friendly! The food quality and service level were way above what I expected!

My family stayed here for four days and we had a good time touring DC. The shuttle service picked us up from the Ronald Reagan Airport. The hotel is located very close to the airport. Also, it is good to know that pilots and stewardesses use this hotel. They were on the airport shuttle with us. The grocery store across... More

The hotel met my expectation during a recent stay. The rooms were clean and of large size. The hotel staff was friendly, and gave good advice on things to do around Alexandria. There is a free hotel shuttle to DCA, where you can then take the metro into DC. I actually booked this hotel to visit DC, which save quite... More

I admit that I wasn't thrilled about coming to Alexandria in late June given the reputation for excessive heat and humidity. The hotel was the site for a small conference of 400 people. The front desk staff kept getting me confused with another person of the same name. However, eventually it was straightened out. The rooms were well appointed and... More

Pros: The facility is bright and clean. There is a good grocery store across the street, as is a liquor store. Nice neighborhood to walk around in. The in-house "Bistro" offered good food and an exceptional staff. Our suite did have sm microwave, fridge and sink. Good television lineup.

We came with a group of 40 -the Illiana Community Congregation-to visit the DC. Rooms were spacious and clean. Key cards were not always working, but staff remedied those matters quickly.

So-So, Good front desk staff, cafe,limited selections and very poor service. The bar is to close to the cafe, problems with loud drunks swearing. The hallways have an old smokey/musty smell. The location is not in the best area of town, and is a long walk from old town. no bathroom fan, no microwave in room.
