While the hotel itself is fine, the customer service is sub-par, and the hotel is located a mile from the nearest metro, with no restaurants, stores, etc. nearby.

Hotel is a little ragged. Staff was helpful but somewhat indifferent. Restaurant was just OK. Parking is $20.00 a night and the internet is only free in the lobby. They have a shuttle to the Reagan airport Metro station, but, their van is small and when it's busy you may have to wait until it returns . A cab ride... More

My wife and I stayed here on a Tuesday night using points. We were pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to a ninth floor room with a view of the Potomac River. We had a few hours to kill before taking in a show, and ended up pulling chairs up to the picture window and having cocktails. Jets landing at National... More

This hotel was a very nice property. Close to where I needed to be. A little older hotel, needs to be renivated. I could hear everyones door slam shut whether they were coming or going.

Good thing they've got nice aesthetics because the $20 parking, the $10/day internet access, and the rude woman at the front desk make this hotel pretty unwelcoming. There are great walking paths near this hotel, which you'll need to shake off the bad vibe in the lobby.

I reserved 2 rooms here for the Alexandria Arts Festival which is held in Old Town. I got a great rate on Hotwire for this hotel, which made our stay even sweeter! I check in for myself and for our friend's room. The woman at the front desk, Rashad (I think that was her name), was extremely helpful and kind.... More

The room was very clean and comfortable, however, the air conditioner sounded like a single engine airplane taking off. The first night I wore the provided earplugs, but the second night the maids had taken them away. By the third night, I had become used to the noise and it didn't seem as bad. The room really needed to be... More

The hotel is situated close to the Potomac River and some local shops. The room was spacious, comfortable and clean. The facilities were great but the location may not be convenient to travellers without a car. However, the price was reasonable and this hotel certainly represents value for money.

Rooms are fairly spacious and clean. The pool was either non-existant or closed. We were sent over to the holiday inn to use the pool, which was also closed.
