Stayed at this hotel this week,, It has been a Crown Plaza for 3 weeks, previously a Raddisson. I had a room on the West side of the hotel. They don't have insulated drapes for the windows and even with the AC on high and the curtains closed, the temp continued to rise and remained at an unacceptable level. Had... More

I stayed at this hotel for one night. It's located 8 blocks from King street. Great for execrise before and after dinner. My timing couldn't have been any worse. This hotel was being converted to a Crown Plaza Holiday Inn. Apparently, the transition was in its early stage as there was only a large cloth covering the hotel's original Radiison... More

this hotel surely lives up to its Tripadvisor reputation! Having read the reviews I decided to fly extra early one day to avoid having to stay here for 2 nights - thank goodness! My company booked me in to here as the Hampton Inn and Marriott Residence Inn both were fully booked. Positives: staff at front desk - very friendly.... More

There is nothing wrong with this place, but just don't expect luxury. It is a classic example of a 1980's hotel. Plain beds, ugly carpet, plain bathroom, etc. In today's world of flat screen TV's and ultra-comfy beds, this place is a little tired. But I found the staff to be nice, the location to be walking distance from some... More

I stayed for three nights on a business trip. Less than 10 minuets from the airport, easy and fast check in. Overall there's really nothing alarming to point out. However, it took 10 minuets+ for the water to get hot and the new heating system fluctuated between hot and cold air that was a bit uncomfortable during the night.

My sister and I stayed for two days at the Radisson Old Town Alexandria to site see, shop and enjoy seafood restaurants. The room was nice and clean, but nothing special and definitely not worth the money even with my AAA discount. The best thing about the hotel is happy hour in Chequers Lounge. We first arrived a few hours... More

Our room was for free, so I can't complain too much. We were staying under the auspices of one of those time-share sale deals - can't imagine that hotel would help the company sell a lot of timeshares. We paid for parking for only the first day we were there since it became readily apparent that street parking around the... More

My company paid for my stay, but the front desk charged my credit card for the room as well as the incidentals, then it took almost a month before I got reimbursed. The people at front desk clearly could not have cared less, and the people in accounting are rude and incompetent.

We stayed there Sat. night 2/10. $79 + tax. Got a big king on 10th floor (1014) looking twds city - great views. Lower rooms wouldn't have this view b/c of other buildings. Older facility in what looks to be an area converting to office/comm. Did not pay the $12 to park - parked right in front on street. Great... More

I stayed at this hotel for one reason: I was attending a meeting there. This is a very ordinary business hotel. Nothing distinctive about it. I'd say it has seen better days, but it probably hasn't. I would not choose this hotel for a vacation/family stay. Reception area, hallways look dated. Carpet in lobby areas could use a good shampooing.... More
