“Great location, great price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Finding a hotel on short notice in DC is often difficult. I have had mixed results with the Holiday inn chain in general, but generally have liked the holiday inn express hotels. So, when I couldn't get a hotel downtown on my last trip, I chose this hotel in Alexandria. I was very impressed with the cleanliness of the hotel and the friendliness of the staff. It's not a four star hotel, but it's one of the best 3 star hotels I've stayed in. And the price was great - even on short notice.

The hotel is very well located to explore Washington DC and to have good rest afterwards. It has free shuttle service to the 1st metro station of the Yellow line, which is a few minutes ride. It will cost you ar. 4 usd to go to the downtown by metro.
The hotel is very clean, tidy and very cosy. It has lovely spa area and you are allowed to use the swimming pool of the neighbour hotel (less than a minute walk).
The price of the room includes wifi, parking and warm breakfast. Rooms are almost twice cheaper on Fr, Sat and Su night compare to the other days.
The staff is extremely friendly and polite.

Room Tip: We stay on the fist floor and the windows can't be opened. i don't know if it is the case fo...

Staff was so Great always a smile. Breakfast was wonderful, I second the plaudits for the ladies on the buffet. We spent 4 days, our room was kept immaculate. Free WiFi worked well. The different departments decorated Pumpkins and then asked for the guests input as to the best designs. I think #5 was the best. Shuttle service was fast and easy to use. Only disappointment was that the pool is only a whirlpool, Great for me but not great for kids looking for a pool.

Dear tomvpsr

We appreciate you writing this great review. We are happy to hear you enjoyed the breakfast. We do have a pool located at our sister property next door. Thank you for voting for #5, that was the Sales Department and they ended up coming in 2nd place. We hope the next time you are in the Alexandria area you will stay with us again.

Where do I start???? We stayed there 3 nights. The service was top notch. The check in staff, the breakfast staff,,, they were all great. All our needs were met. The room was comfortable. Beds were nice. The television cable was more than some top notch places offer. We went to visit our son stationed at Fort Belvoir (Navy). The location was good, easy to find with help of GPS. Plenty of restaurants and other places nearby. Yes we will stay there again.

I would like to share my experience with 3 staff members while staying overnight. I got lost driving to the hotel. On my previous visit, Antwane, while making my reservation he suggested that I make my reservation for an additional day as it was going to be over the Labor Day weekend. He stated that I could always cancel the additional day if my travel plans changed. Before getting on the road, I spoke to Vince. He confirmed that my reservation was guaranteed for late arrival. On my drive down, I got lost. When I spoke to Marlena, she informed me that I needed to head toward and to cross the Woodrow Wilson Bridge. Once she said that, I knew the direction to head. Each staff person contributed to lessening any of the anxiety that can be associated with travel. It is why I always speak with staff as needed prior to and throughout my stay as needed.

Room Tip: I ask for a room that is either 2 or 3 rooms down from the elevator and vending machines

Stayed one night at the Holiday Inn Express in Alexandria, VA. Check-in was quick, staff polite and friendly and I would highly recommend it. The room was big with a sitting area (couch and table) and mini kitchen. It was clean, appeared new and I considering the area was relatively inexpensive. A buffet breakfast was included.
