“Best place to stay in DC”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

The hotel is located across the street from the Metro. Just hop on and ride downtown. Also at the end of the free shuttle up and down King St. Rooms were excellent, lobby very clean. Only negatives is parking and the cost of breakfast but there are several small place just down the street where you can eat for much less.

I am usually a die hard Marriott customer, but the Hilton offered very easy access to the Metro so we decided to stay there for our forst trip to Alexandria. We had a King deluxe room, which was very nice and the bed was very comfortable, great shower pressure, and "OK" TV quality, not great HDTV. I signed up for Hilton awards (Gold Marriott member), so we received complimentary breakfast buffet coupons for both nights.

The only downside was the $30 per day for parking, but that goes with the territory.

Excellent feedback! It is always great to convert Marriott Reward Members into Hilton Honors member.There is no doubt our Hotel's location in the Old town area is unmarched. Thanks again for the feedback and look forward to your return.

Stayed at the Hilton with my family while on a business trip. First the good: great location on King Street, friendly front desk staff, Starbucks located in the lobby, easy access to Metro and King Street Trolley. Next the adequate: room, concierge service...not very helpful. Now the bad: parking fees of $27.00 per night, charge for internet fees in room (free in the lobby). I stayed at the Hilton due to the conference location; if I had been familiar with the area I would have probably stayed at the Hampton which is located across the street or at the Embassy Suites which was not far from the Hilton.

I look forward to your many returns. Have a great week.

If you are headed to Alexandria for business or a meeting, this Hilton property offers much in the way of convenience. For starters, it is a short Metro ride from Reagan National Airport, and right across the street from the Metro station. Next, sitting on the edge of Old Town, there's a plethora of restaurants within walking distance of the hotel.

Other amenities include a Starbucks in the lobby, and a fitness center that is on par for Hilton hotels.

The staff were friendly and helpful, and the room was spacious and comfortable. In other words, no complaints!

Best night sleep I had in a long time. Really plush beds and pillows, very quiet rooms. Away from the hustle and bustle but still easy to get anywhere on the FREE Trolly and the King Street Metro Station.

Hotel is located in the old town which has much character and a nice feel of a neighborhood.
Great eating a free trolly ride away. Wholefoods a few blocks away with a breakfast buffet and other buffets.

Hotel is clean, quiet and free wifi in the lobby ;)

This could be a really nice Hilton, but if you get a room with a view of the George Washington Masonic Temple Memorial across the street you're asking for a rude awakening in the middle of the night. At about 4AM each morning a several-mile-long coal train passes the Alexandria King Street station and whistles endlessly for a good 5 minutes as it approaches the station. AND, you can hear it as plainly as if your window was open (they do not open).

So, while this could be a pleasant experience in Old Town Alexandria, if you are a light sleeper, forget getting a room with an even number or you're in for (literally) a rude awakening.

My stay was for 3 nights. After the first night I asked about a change of rooms and was told that they were booked solid! Not good.

So, given a choice, avoid ANY of the hotels that face the Metro Station because the AMTRAK station runs parallel and you'll have to attend your meetings tired the next day.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the back of the hotel are quieter.

Dear Carl A,
Feedback is essential to our success. Thanks for staying with us and do appreciate your business. Most of our guest do enjoy our Hotel's proximity to the Metro but at the same time we do recognize it can be noisy at times. We do have rooms on the non metro sides of the building and I will document your profile as such. Once again thanks for staying with us and we hope you do continue to patronize our Hotel.
