Old charming hotel very clean and kept up. Staff excellent. Stephen very helpful with directions and resturants. Jermiah shuttle us to old town, metro and even to the grocery store was very helpful. The only negative was the breakfast room was down stairs. There was a handicap lift that could be used but did not know how to use it.

After a long day in DC on me and my husbands anniversary. Looking forwards to a nice dinner we call to be pick up at train station, 30 minutes later called again. It was another 15 minutes later before anyone showed up. You need to take shuttle service off your add if you can not fulfill it. I will not... More

We stayed Overnight Sunday. We left Monday morning. Other than weather being hot, it was 97 degrees!, everything else was satisfactory. The breakfast was great, they had waffles. cold and hot cereal, breads, muffins biscuits. nice variety, friendly staff, great location. But entrance into the hotel was difficult because we missed entrance a few times and hard to turn around... More

We stayed at this property seven years ago and it was just as good as we remembered. I have health issues and needed a first floor room and Stephen who checked us in went above and beyond to make it happen. Woody and Jeremiah the shuttle drivers were engaging and knowledgeable about the area and were always on time. The... More

Stayed one night, and I'm glad that was the only night. If I hadn't been with other guests, I would have left. The only positive thing was that the staff was friendly. Walls in the room were dirty and yellowed and had small white sections that had been either cleaned or repainted. Didn't want to think about why. Shower and... More

This Best Western did not have a clearly visible sign showing where it was. If you missed it you had to drive miles out of the way to turn around. There is no elevator, it is right in the flight path of Regan Airport and they didn't even have a ice machine. (Although they had made up little individual bags... More

Nice, clean, good breakfast with lots of food choice. Nice staff- answered all my questions without a problem and offered good suggestions. Location could be a little closer to King Street- the main hub of Old Town Alexandria- but they were very nice to offer shuttle service there.

Located in a nice area of Alexandria. If your purpose is to go into Washington, D.C. and not spend a lot of time at the hotel itself, then not a bad choice. The free shuttle service provided was very helpful getting to the Metro and Old Town Alexandria. It's also available for trips to Ronald Reagan Airport. We drove and... More

My parents and I wanted to see the Cherry Blossoms this year and made a last minute trip to DC. This hotel definitely met our expectations. The service was great, everyone was very kind. The room was very clean and spacious. Breakfast had a lot of options and everything was fresh. The hotel offers free parking right outside and a... More

We chose this hotel for our Washington DC tour because they promoted their shuttle service and location close to Old Town which is an area we wanted to shop and eat in. The shuttle drivers (we met 2) were friendly, but it became obvious after we were there a couple of days that they had other responsibilities at the hotel... More
