This is a VERY nice place to stay. It is very clean and the rooms are large. Best sleep I have had at any hotel. I loved the firm pillows. We stayed here so we could go back to Old Town and see familiar places. There is a daily charge for parking and the breakfast is NOT included with your... More

Was disappointed in the room we stayed in. The bathroom hinges were rusty and old. The food is average an expensive in the hotel. The address they give for the GPS sends you to the opposite side of the city in a residential area. Therefore you need to call the hotel for directions.

The room was very clean, everyone was very friendly and helpful. The hotel staff helped my wife find her wedding rings. She was very upset when she couldn't find them and the staff responded right away and found them and called her back immediately. I will recommend this hotel to my friends if the come to the DC area.

Nice hotel, 10 minutes from the Reagan airport, free shuttle, quiet, but the Musty smell on the room intolerable, loud air condition, restaurant close by 9pm. Did not try breakfast, but location was close to Alexandria historical center. And metro to go to WA DC. I recommend

We stayed here mid-week on personal business. Booked through Hotels.com and got a decent rate. the first room we were booked into smelled very musty, like it had not been opened up and used in quite some time. We requested a different room. It was better, no bad smells. This hotel is somewhat dated, but comfortable. It looks like it... More

I had a wonderful experience at this holiday inn. The staff were very helpful especially with the large group I was travelling with. Rooms were clean, big and quiet. Coin operated laundry facilities located within the hotel which is convenient for families or those staying a little longer. Located in a quiet area 1 block from a 24/7 grocery store... More

While on a business trip to Washington DC I was looking for a Hotel near Reagan National airport that would not "break the bank"... I found this quaint property in just across the Potomac from DC and within 15 minutes of the airport. BONUS, I saved a hundred dollars over some of the alternatives. BONUS #2, this property is within... More

I just can't give this hotel a stellar review despite saving a few dollars during our stay in Alexandria. We had to renew our passports in D.C., decided to do some sightseeing in Old Town afterwards and booked this hotel for two nights, two rooms. First, the positive - the hotel is easy to find and looks to be updated... More

The rooms were clean, cool, and comfortable. These qualities, for me, are imperative to a enjoyable hotel stay, yet this experience was anything but pleasant. At check-in, we received keys to our two rooms: two people in one room, one person in the other. Upon entering his room, my father discovered clothes and shoes scattered about on the floor. The...

The hotel serves breakfast in the lounge area until 10 AM. We arrived at 9:30 and we're informed that we could only get the buffet to late to order from the menu.
