I stayed here on business due to the proximity to the metro stop. While I was somewhat concerned reading other reviews on this site, I found the hotel to be in a perfectly safe area (literally 1 block from the US Attorney and 2 blocks from the US Courthouse). The best metro option is the Yellow line, exiting at Eisenhower,... More

I can't say enough good stuff about this hotel. It starts with their staff - I even remember their names - Cassandra and Pam - because they were so terrific. We got our room on a discount site. We were in town for the Art Festival. The price was very reasonable, so I wasn't expecting much. What a surprise. We... More

From the moment I began check-in, I knew this stay would be special. Sade, Cassandra & Pam, Front Desk Staff were extremely courteous and professional. They were so helpful and friendly. My room was great and the Manager's Meet & Greet was outstanding. Great location as well.

What a great place - the front desk staff is very friendly and extremely helpful. They have a manager meet and greet Monday - Thursday. Last night they served a Chicken Afritada that was so delicious.

Thank you for the great compliment on my staff and food. That Chicken Afritada dish is a personal recipe of our Chef and it is only available here at our hotel exclusively. If you thought that was delicious she has a lot more specialty dishes better than the Afritada! You’ll just have to come back again to taste them! Thanks... More

Whether you're in Alexandria, or anywhere else in the beltway for that matter, this is a great place to stay. I will start with the location, this hotel is within walking distance of many attractions and businesses.

Stayed here for a long weekend getaway with my husband in August 2014. We decided to stay in Alexandria instead of downtown DC because the summer hotel prices are so high in DC; also we wanted to explore Alexandria. Wow, was this a great decision. We may never stay in DC again. The King St. metro is a short walk... More

The location of the hotel is very good, close to two metro stations king street and Eisenhower Ave. Rooms are really nice and cozy. Ours was a two bedroom suite which had a very large living/dining room and with fully equipped kitchen. The small convenience store... More

Absolutely enjoyed my stay at this establishment. From the moment I arrived, I felt welcomed and very comfortable. The staff was down to earth and even upgraded my room.
