Within one block walking distance to the Metro, this hotel cannot be beat for staying in the Washington, DC suburbs. The Metro and a Starbucks are less than one block. Added advantage are the restaurants and quaint shops of Alexandria. We stayed here with two young teenagers and felt that they were safe enough to go exploring without parent supervision. Hot and cold breakfast is very good. Hotel is quiet and nicely appointed. Top it off. Clean. Personable service. Added bonus is not paying Washington parking prices for your vehicle, which you do not need to see the city sites. Metro easily will take you anywhere you wish to go. This is not a large hotel, so I would describe it as boutique in its presentation. Our travel time on the Metro to the Smithsonian and adjoining properties was approximately 30 minutes after the blue line would arrive at the Metro station. My advice on Metro travel is to buy a multi-travel or multi-day pass to avoid the "paper card" penalties of $1 per fare. If there are four family members, you will ad $4 to the cost of each one-way ticket if you do not purchase this way. You can purchase your tickets at the train station and even add revenue on a paper ticket to avoid the $1 surcharge.
