Upon arrival, the man that checked us in was not and has not been the friendliest of people. He makes very little attempt to help you and does not give you any kind of greeting when walking in the door. Our first room had issues with the door closing and locking. The second room smelled strongly of Clorox bleach. Overall... More

Very convenient hotel for Old Town Alexandria (10 blocks but hotel has a shuttle to King st); shuttle from Reagan National; shuttle to Braddock Station Metro, so downtown Washington is 20 minutes away. I had meetings at Pentagon City so very handy, 3 stops on metro. Good value. Excellent breakfast!

Very pleasant stay. Staff was superb. Excellent location for enjoying this city. Breakfast was an afterthought, though -- otherwise, first class. It's a shame this idiotic form doesn't offer a character count, since the nerds who created it insist, but you can't hold that against the hotel.

This hotel is well run and clean but needs some modernisation. The location is very good for Alexandria with its many restaurants and tourist sites and if you want a trip to DC there is a hotel shuttle to the nearest Metro. They will also pick up on return. Unfortunately there is a problem with aircraft noise which would be... More

Hotel was good value for money. It came with free Wi-fi and complimentary breakfast. The hotel offer a shuttle service to old Alexandria and the nearest metro station to Washington D.C., very cobvenient.

We stayed at the Best Western Old Colony Inn in Alexandria, Virginia in September. We heard that they have offer a free shuttle bus that provides a drop off to the subway into D.C, as well as to King Street which is the main area for shopping and restaurants in the Old Town. The hotel is just off a main... More

We stayed three nights, the staff was very helpful and took care of any needs we had. The shuttle to the metro was a great plus, the breakfast each day was different and good, the room was clean, overall we are very satisfied with the stay and we would come stay here again!

Rooms were clean and spacious, Housekeeping very accommodating. Breakfast was average hotel food. I ate out because of health limitations. Not happy about additional charges for micro, fridge or safe. Beautiful section of Alexandria. walking distance to the host hotel for our conference. Short driving distance to Arlington and monuments.

Stayed at this hotel in early August. What had been an adequate stay (we were considering a two or three out of five) was marred after we had checked out by a staff that clearly wanted nothing to do with us after we had pulled out of their driveway. Clothing that had been mistakenly picked up with the towels by... More
