A perfectly located hotel for visiting Alexandria as well as DC. It is a short walk to King Street and the metro stop as well as the free trolley that takes you all the way down to the waterfront.
The front desk personnel were friendly and efficient and check-in was quick. They were also very helpful with directions to places we were interested in and how to get there. No car is needed to go anywhere in the area.
Our suite was large with a compact kitchen containing everything you need if you want to cook something. The refrigerator was full size if you need the space for drinks or snacks. Kitchen came with complimentary coffee, tea, and microwave popcorn.
Queen bed was very comfortable with lots of pillows. A sofa bed was in the living room. A flat screen TV was in both rooms. Bathroom had a separate dressing area with sink and closet. Adequate toiletries.
Wifi was free and worked fine. Parking was in a parking garage that was secure. Pool is inside the hotel and has a lifeguard and a pool lift for the handicapped. One poster said the pool was not open during the day. We used it both Sat. and Sun. during the day for a quick dip. Maybe it is only open on the weekend during the day? Don't know about that.
Breakfast was great with lots of choices and had a large seating area. It was full when we went in but turnover was constant so we didn't have to wait but a few minutes for a table.
The hotel is nicer than others we have stayed at in the same price range in the DC area and provides more for your money. The great location doesn't hurt, either. Would stay here again.
