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

Called hotel upon my arrival at Washington-Reagan and they sent a shuttle to pick me up. Took about 20 minutes for shuttle to arrive. 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...

I stayed at the Old Colony Inn for one night on a layover in the DC area. Hotel shuttle picked me up at Reagan National within 30 minutes of having called them up. 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

My friends and I purchased a Groupon to stay at this establishment for our annual homage to DC. We lasted about 3 hours in this hotel room. The hotel is advertised as being handicap-accessible. I think that's a stretch. My friends and I (one of whom was on crutches) were given a room on the second floor of this hotel.... More

Kittyminky87, I want to apologize for your stay with us. I do not understand why it went so bad for you when normally our staff is very good. As far as needing a handicap room, I am sorry that there was no mention of you needing a first floor room on your reservation. However they should have offered to help... More

Stayed for three nights. Everything in DC is expensive, so it was decent value for money. Room was clean and staff were friendly; although could have been more helpful with restaurant recommendations and directions. It is a little further away from downtown Alexandria then I expected. A good 20 minute hike to King Street; although I think they did offer... More

We really appreciated the helpful staff and the great continental breakfast. They also offer shuttle services. We also stayed at a Holiday Inn in PA and a Courtyard Marriott in CT during this trip. This was the best value for our money. We are going to remember this hotel for our next trip to DC.
