Our visit was great from start to finish, the staff were very helpful with local advice on places to go, the free shuttle & the drivers were excellent & very accommodating. Our room was spacious, clean & well maintained. The location was great only a short walk to restaurants or take the shuttle to the Metro trains for DC.

This hotel provides a free shuttle to the Metro Station and to several other locations around Old Town Alexandria. Very nice staff, quiet location, good breakfast buffet included with the room. They also have free WiFi throughout the hotel, and free guest parking.

This hotel is a great place during your visit to the Washington DC area that won't cost you an arm and a leg like most of the rest around the city. Shuttle bus to take you to and from the Metro where you can easily get into the city to see all of the sites. It's also a beautiful 20... More

The Old Colony Inn was a perfect choice for staying near the sites of DC. They had a free shuttle to take you to the Metro. the Metro was cheap and the best way to travel. The Hotel was excellent and Alexandria is one of the prettiest towns we have stayed in and safe to walk around at night The... More

I also took this shuttle to the Metro station at Braddock Rd., which also took me 12 minutes to walk from hotel (0.8 miles). Shuttle runs to Braddock and other points every half hour, and all...

The hotel is located in a quiet residential area about 10 min. away from the airport. The outside of the hotes is very nicely maintained. The room... More

Some of our family stayed at a nearby, more expensive hotel. They could not get a shuttle to the metro and had to pay for parking. They also did not have a free breakfast. We had better service for less money

I got to the hotel way early... misjudged my time. They had just cleaned a room on the 1st floor and asked if that would be alright. Absolutely, I said! Nice room, clean. Not overly frilly but, hey, I'm only going to sleep here. Front desk was pleasant and asked if everything was ok with my room. When I asked... More
