Stayed at the hotel for a week long conference that was on site. When I first arrived I found a spa sample packet on my pillow (pillow spray, foot cream, and a relaxation facial cream). It's a small touch, but very welcoming after traveling all day. My room was clean, and the bed was comfortable. There is an air conditioner... More

The hotel is located a short walk to a grocery store, Thai, Mexican and Italian restaurants. I have tried them all and have... More

The biggest problem with this hotel seems to be the management: Pros: Location-price-shuttle service from Reagan Airport. Nice rooms. Cons: Management is cheap and it shows: The fire alarm rang 0406; fortunately a false alarm. But no one knew it was a false alarm, so we evacuated. Upon reaching the outside it was mass confusion; people milling around, wandering in-out... More

We stayed here for three nights as part of an Archers/ Cosmos touring holiday. It is in the historic area of Alexandria and the surroundings are quiet and felt safe. The hotel is a typical Crowne Plaza, large, clean and comfortable. No problems at all with the rooms and good and friendly staff. Food and drink in the hotel are... More

I stayed here for the last three days for a workshop at their sister property, the Holiday Inn. The hotel is perfectly okay, but there are some service issues. First, the good. The rooms are nice. Beds are comfortable, bathroom clean, good water pressure. Housekeeping is efficient. There is also a microfridge; not all that common in full-service hotels. If... More

Bought via priceline and was advertised as a 3 1/2 star hotel. That is a gross overstatement. First room had a dead cockroach. When I asked for a credit back so I could leave they said no since I bought via priceline. A/C was also not working in this room. Matter of fact they offered me nothing and still charged... More

We stayed just one night. The staff was very helpful - let us check out the room before we made the reservation and found and held a forgotten bag for us. The south facing suite we had on the 11th floor gave a wonderful view of the Potomac and the park where they held the fireworks on the 12th. There... More

We stayed here for 2 nights over the Memorial Day weekend. The hotel is clean and the beds are comfy and you can get a good sleep. It is a little out of town but there are shuttles and there is a convenience store nearby. We were very happy with the free wifi even though you had to join to... More

I stayed here for two nights and was thoroughly impressed. The lobby is large with a selection of newspapers and also computers for guests to use. The room I had was large and overlooked the Potomac river. I could even see Capitol Hill in the distance! There is a wonderful restaurant in the hotel which I highly recommend for dinner.... More

A nice hotel with friendly attentive staff. Large lobby area with couches and computer desk. The reception staff were friendly and helpful.
