Myself, my wife, and our 2 boys stayed here for 4 nights over Easter break. First of all, let me stress that the location is great. You are a short walk to King Street which is the main attraction of Old Town Alexandria. The hotel will shuttle you to and from the Metro. The customer service was very good. Having only used the Metro once before, the front desk was very helpful in helping me navigate into DC via the Metro. Also, the hotel ran out of bagged coffee for the rooms 2 of our 4 days. In lieu of the in room coffee, the staff delivered coffee to our room free of charge. Parking was easy, as I was always able to secure surface parking, and never had to use the ramp.
As with most reviews I do have a couple of negatives to point out. First of all, the front doors were not automatic sliding doors. This may not sound like a big deal, but with 2 suitcases, 2 duffel bags, and a computer bag on the luggage cart it was not the easiest thing to maneuver through 2 sets of push doors. Also, the hotel advertises a hot tub, but from the looks of the hot tub it hasn't been used it quite a while as it was being used as a planter stand in the pool room.
Overall, it was a good experience, and yes I would return.
