“Walk to Old Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Service was great. Front desk was very helpful. Hotel was so strategically placed. We walked around old town and got on shuttle to metro to get to sites of D.C. Plenty of history to see and read just walking around hotel. GREAT italian restaurant A LA LUCIA near hotel.

Here for a weekend conference. The room was average, clean & spacious. Since I had a roommate, I liked the toilet/shower area separate from the sink, so one could shower while the other was getting ready. Has blowdryer & coffee maker. Free shuttle to Reagan airport and to Old Town Alexandria, which was so much fun for shopping. Great restaurants, music & nightlife. Also just blocks to walk to Old Town, which we usually did. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, good selection for breakfast buffet, nice workout facility, clean pool.

This hotel is excellently situated with a supermarket across the road and shuttle bus which takes you to either downtown pretty Alexandria or the Ronald Reagan Airport. Our room was ok but was a little tired and could have done with a good lick of paint but was large and airy. It overlooked an indoor garden so that made the room a bit dark and did need to put lights on when in the room.

There was a bit confusion at breakfast as we had paid for Bed and Breakfast rate and we were not given vouchers so went to reception who said we had to pay for breakfast. Unfortunately we hadn't printed out our confirmation so had to go online to prove it - so word of warning, print out your booking!! But got it sorted eventually and got our breakfast which was ok but not holiday inn's usually large selection.

However, that said, I would go back to the hotel but request a freshly decorated room as the location was ideal for us and supermarket across the road was so handy for buying our picnic before we set off.

Room Tip: ask for a freshly decorated room with an outside view.

Stayed on last trip, and was ok but nothing special. Underground car park. Supermarket across the road. Walking distance to train station. Had a good breakfast there on day of checking out and this was good, Clean and tidy. Probably did everything it was supposed to but no wow factor.

I picked this hotel, sight unseen, for a weekend 50th class reunion of my nursing school class. I chose it for convenience from the airport and close to restaurants and shopping. We had 14 attend and had an absolutely wonderful weekend of catching up after many years of not seeing each other. Kim, at the front desk, could not have been any more accommodating to our needs. She helped arrange the shuttle for us and always acknowledged me by name. The shuttle driver went out of his way to take us to our dinner place and pick us up even though it wasn't normally on his route. I had spoken with Myrna Tesalona before I arrived regarding a casual get together the first evening. She arranged for us to have our own section of the bar area for cocktails and snacks. She even had a Welcome sign for us. Her staff, Lahbib and Marleen, took excellent care of us and catered to our every need that evening. Myrna checked on us all weekend and pretty much knew who all was in our group. She made sure that we were doing okay and if we needed anything. I did not hear one complaint from my friends about the hotel.
We decided that we would get together again in 5 years and would love to do it again at this Holiday Inn!

Room Tip: All of the rooms that I visited were spacious, bright and clean. We enjoyed our room with a view of...

Staff was great...helpful & friendly. Rooms were pleasant & clean...beds & pillows were comfy.... the location was so close to Ronald Regan Airport(but didn't hear any noises).. the shuttle to airport, metro & Historic King St was so convenient. The full service grocery store across the street from the hotel came in very handy. This is a dog friendly hotel, which was a must for us! This hotel has an indoor/outdoor pool & fitness center. There is a restaurant & a café on site. We also had decent Wifi in our room.
