We were a guest of the Old Colony Inn over the 2nd weekend in Sept. 9th 2011 and the property had just finished replacing all the rooms with new beds which are very comfortable. Housekeeping could however do a better job of cleaning the corners of the room and HVAC vents as they had lots of built up dust. The... More

I stayed here for one night, but would have been very happy to stay for more. It is not a luxury hotel, but that's not what I was looking for. I was looking for three things: a nice, quiet room, a location convenient to DC and Reagan National Airport, and no problems. I got all of this and more. All... More

We had stayed here 4 years ago and although basic in every way, found it to be most convenient to get to the Metro (using the hotel shuttle) and within fairly easy walking distance from the main area of Alexandria. Now, however, there have been huge improvements..there is a snack bar on the 2nd floor with free beverages, snacks, yoghurt,... More

This hotel is great! It is everything they advertise and more. The staff was wonderful.. The shuttle service to the Metro really works. The breakfast is very good. The room was delightful. The well stocked, free 24 hour snacks are a perk matched by no other hotel where I have ever stayed. The only drawback is that it is not... More

This is an older hotel, but I think that adds to its ambiance. The check in was somewhat difficult with the attendant, but other than that it was nice. They have free snacks upstairs which is awesome. They also have a pretty good breakfast as well as a nice gym. Unfortunately, the hot tub was out of service because that... More
