This hotel is located in Alexandria Virginia's historic district that is by far the best part of this hotel. This hotel runs a shuttle service, for free, to and from the historic district which is a very convenient and pleasant trip. However problems with the rooms make staying at this hotel less pleasant. The problems began just after checking in. We attempted to enter the room using the key card provided by the front desk. Upon entering the key card into the slot the door would not open. We tried the other key provided. Again, the door would not open. After several attempts I went to the front desk where I was provided with a new key. Upon returning to the room once again, the key card still did not work. At this point I called the front desk and the front desk worker came up and opened the door. He said the batteries in the slots needed to be replaced. Despite the unpleasantness of the situation we were able to get into the room and the front desk staff was helpful. Upon entering the room we found it to be partially renovated and partially not renovated. While the linens on the bed and the photographs on the wall appeared To be new, the curtains and bathroom amenities were decidedly not new. The curtains on the wall had many holes throughout them which I found to be exceptionally strange and very shabby for an otherwise decent hotel. Also, parking at the hotel is very expensive. It was $20 per day to park. On the whole of this hotel is not a luxury hotel. It is a dated Holiday Inn. Unlike its cousin, holiday in express, there was no free breakfast in the morning. The Wi-Fi Internet in the room rarely worked and when it did it only worked for a few moments at a time. I stayed here because I got it for a good price on a bidding website. I would only stay at this hotel again if I got an exceptionally good deal.
