“Great Price Easy to Get Around.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

If your a history buff or you have friends in stationed in the area this is the place to stay! I found this hotel on a whim and to my surprise, the staff was extreamly friendly anf helpful. (Not something you experance when visiting places new england.)

A free shuttle runs to the airport which you can also pick up the metro (train/subway) to get around DC while your car stays parked under the hotel. A grocery store is right across the street if you wanted to dine on a budget, however I didn't need to. Nice area to walk around with many things to do. Will definitely come back again!

Stayed here for one night in January. P.S. I booked this room on Priceline, so I don't know if they reserve the worst lot of rooms for those reservations. Either way, I spent about $100 for the night (including the $20 for parking!) and was VERY unimpressed. The lobby and bar looked fine, but the room was pretty grungy. There were stains on the carpet and the lighting was bad. The room was quite big, but poorly arranged. The TV was so far across the room that I couldn't really see it, and was secured to the stand so that it could not be rotated to watch from closer furniture. Additionally, they had a weird black square over CBS that prevented me from watching a playoff football game (why for a channel someone can get at home without cable??). Overall gloominess and dinginess, not worth my money. Its a decent location, but not directly in lively part of Alexandria. Not a great deal. Plus side- the front desk staff was really friendly.

Stayed here for business. It was convenient to get to. The Wifi was AWFUL, it was really painfully slow. The bed was comfortable, seemed pretty clean, and the staff was nice. The parking lot is really small and the spots are incredibly tight which having an SUV rental car was a parking nightmare for me. There is a Safeway across the street, but it is very small.

Thank you for your comment on our hotel and services. Our hotel strives to give our guest the best services and accommodations. We do apologize for the inconvenience in reference to parking, our parking garage was being worked on at the time and had to be closed to for a short time. It is now completed, our parking space are suited for most cars.

Stayed here for three nights on business and had a pleasant stay. The facility is very clean and nice, the staff was great too. The hotel is very close to the Patomac River, walking distance. Very close to Regan Airport as well with a complimentary shuttle to and from there. Good experience!

I have mixed experiences at Holiday Inns in the past but the price was right for an unexpected trip. Beds were comfy, AC unit was quiet, room seemed clean. My husband and I were happy with the quality and location of the hotel. It is very easy to get to right off the GW Parkway, in a very nice, safe area; shuttle to the metro and King street area (although King street only a 3 minute drive. Stop in the Visitor's Center on King and Fairfax and pick up a "Parking Proclamation" that entitles vistors to free parking at meters. Parking at the hotel is $20 a night unless you sign up for the rewards' program (free) than its $10, reasonable for the DC area.

The hotel was clean and the staff was nice but there was no parking on property. They shuttle you back and forth to their sister property 3 blocks away. This worked fine except my husband's expected arrival time was 4 am...no shuttle. He was fortunate enough to find an on street parking spot around the corner. I wish they would have told me when I called this was an issue, we made our reservations less than a week ago and this would have factored in our booking.

We weren't familiar with the Alexandria / DC area so we could only go by reviewers comments. We chose this hotel and really enjoyed the entire experience. Very accessible to King street and the Metro. We used the hotel shuttle extensively. Everyone on the staff was great. They couldn't do enough to make our 4 day visit comfortable and fun. The facility is very nice and well maintained. We will return when we visit this area.

Room Tip: You can use the shuttle to make local travel much easier.
