“Stay for the convenience.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

We spent two nights in Alexandria and chose this hotel for it's central location to all the shops and restaurants. The free trolley comes right in front of the hotel, but I enjoyed strolling down King St. even more. The staff is extremely courteous and helpful. Our minivan was extra long with a hitch and four bikes, so we told the front desk of our parking concerns. They allowed us to park it in back instead of the garage. Yes, $20/day for parking feels steep, but we wanted to be comfortable knowing that our bikes were safe. I liked the free breakfast. It's a modest variety of hot and cold, fresh fruit, juices, coffee, etc. It's a wonderful convenience to not have to figure out your first meal of the day. Our only complaint would be that the A/C fan unit was loud in our room. Overall we would stay here again.

In general I found the hotel adequate, however the fitness facility left a lot to be desired. The hours were inconvenient and were not advertised prior to making the reservation. The quality of the equipment was poor and the room is very small. The hotel tends to be filled with tourists and children that come and go at late hours and aren't considerate of those who are not on vacation. Additionally, the rooms need a face lift and the HVAC system is loud and inefficient. However, the staff is very friendly and accommodating. The location is excellent. The breakfast is great.

The property is in excellent shape, with professional and courteous staff. Breakfast selection was vast, rooms were clean and crisp. We selected this hotel for proximity to Metro (1 block) and for value, and we were extremely happy.

Staff was beyond helpful, and the amenities were great. Will stay again and again, as we do lots of road trips. Parking is a challange, so have a driving buddy go in and the driver circle the hotel block until you find the underground lot (must have room key to enter lot)

With our hopes high at staying on King Street and enjoying downtown Alexandria, this hotel should be avoided. It's outdated, smelly, noisy, and just plain below the quality you'd expect to find in a Hilton property located in such a prominent area. I wanted to give it a chance and allow the staff and management to make things right, but we couldn't get past the 20yd line. After initially checking into our room, we discovered that the air conditioner was leaking and an industrial blower was loudly trying to dry it out. Of course it has the sound of a Nascar track dryer so we unplugged it. We had to run out for a meeting and upon our return found a horrible smell in the room. We alerted the front desk who promptly sent maintenance up to check things out. He agreed with us and the front desk was able to move us into another room. So the second room is street facing right next to the trolley stop. Did I say loud! The next thing we discovered was that the front area of the AC by the window was also completely soaked with water. So with soggy socks in hand I wrote to the GM, Jim Moore, letting him know. There is a letter from him in the room asking to contact him if there are any problems. I have yet to hear back from him. The last thing I want to mention is the awful smell coming from the exercise room and the rug just outside the door. A terrible BO that just overcomes you when you come upon it. Of course our room had to be right across from it.

There is no fridge or safe. The furniture is old and worn. Carpet is old and needs to be replaced. I would not lay any clothes on the chairs or sofa chairs. The bathroom is probably what you find at a truck stop bit at least they had neutrogena products.

I do want to compliment the service desk for at least getting us checked in early and finding us another room. In hindsight, we should've checked out and gone to the Residence Inn which had the exact same price but only a few blocks away.

Really hate to write this because I love Hilton properties. This is just one that needs a complete overhaul.

During a recent vacation, we stayed at this hotel for 5 days. It is very clean, reasonably priced, and close to the King Street DC Metro Station. From there you can take the Blue Line or yellow line to DC. It was was nice to get our much needed nightly rest outside of DC. Convenient to several nice restaurants is also a big plus. Definitely a good choice for your DC excursion.

Relative to the price you pay, this is a good value hotel. Comparable cost around $250 - $300 a night. I checked pricing online frequently, and the price dropped to around $125 a night before taxes. It is only around 1-2 blocks to the King Street metro. You can take either the blue or yellow line into DC. Reagan National airport is only 2 stops away, and under $2.00. The rooms are clean, and bigger big compared to New York city. Considering you get a decent breakfast, this is a good value. The breakfast staff is very nice and helpful. I thought the rooms were unusally quiet for urban area. The hotel is at the end of King street, away from the busy part of the street, The backside of the hotel faces an office complex, so it is quiet. There is construction going on behind the hotel, but it is surprisingly quiet. There is a free King street trolley that stops outside the hotel. But it is frequently full.

Room Tip: Backside of the hotel faces a office complex, away from King Street
