“Nice place but oh my the traffic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Hotel is very nice with recent updates. There is a botanical garden with a lake right beside the property.
There are many sizes of Rooms for what ever business event you want to hold.
The best way to get in and out of the property is via I 395. Do not even attempt to get off of I 66 and get to it off of Va Rt 7.

Room Tip: If you hate elevators ask for a room on the floor below the lobby. Easy trip down the escalator to t...

Got stranded in DC after a bad rain/lightening storm on Monday night and had a terrible time finding a hotel. Finally, called the Hilton and at 0130 they took me and 3 traveling companions in. Nice people, courteous staff, great customer service. The hotel has been there a long time and could use some modernization, but what they lack in fashion, they have made up for in customer service. The restaurant was great and the service there was remarkable as well. I would stay with these folks again.

If you find yourself off the beaten path in Alexandria, for business or pleasure, make sure you rest your head at the Hilton Mark Center. This site has all of the creature comforts, with gym and pool facilities that help you stay healthy away from your home gym. Not as easily accessbile as downtown Alexandria, but if you're staying at the Mark Center you are probably their for different reasons than being close to the DC Metro.

This hotel was fantastic from the Indoor/Outdoor Pool to the Finn&Porter Restaurant and the proximity to Washington DC... Hilton at Alexandria Mark Center had it all! After a terrible beginning of trip that started out in Cincinnati and took us to Cape Charles, VA all the way to Annapolis Maryland in one day... we could not have been happier to end up at this Hilton!

The Hilton Alexandria is a pretty good hotel. The views from the room are very nice from the higher floors. The rooms are well apponted. I did not have the housekeeping issues that several reviewers experienced. My main complaint was around parking. Self-parking is expensive ($24) and not at all convenient. It is a pretty good walk from the parking garage to the tower elevators. And if you are not on the top floor of the parking garage, you have to navigate steps with your luggage, and likely walk through a wedding or prom or other hotel event. And there is often not adequate parking for hotel guests when one of these events is going on. I guess they really want you to valet park, and I probably would do that if I had it to do over again. But, then you are in $29/night for parking. That seems awfully expensive for parking at a property that is not downtown.

But despite the parking issues, I would stay here again.

Very nice hotel, good prices on the weekend, superlative staff. Good food in the restaurant. The parking is pricey, it'd be nice to have a weekend rate for that too. Great service all around, no complaints.

Dear mytripthruyoureyes
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. My team and I are working very hard to provide all of our guests with the products and services that will exceed their expectations. Your comments showed that we did not achieve that goal. For this, I sincerely apologize.

While I know that you are very busy, I would appreciate it if you could take a few moments to clarify what the problem was. One of your comments was that we could not let you into a room that someone else booked. If your name was not on the room we can not let you into it for security purposes.
