Went on a "girls weekend" with my 7 year old daughter and decided to stay in Alexandria over our first choice of a hotel on Capitol Hill, as we were coming in the middle of the gov shutdown, and I did not know what sort of temperment people would have in the DC area. This was a great place. The location is walking distance to so much, Whole Foods, King St Metro, shops, restaurants. Each day the manager at the hotel was happy to help direct me once I gave him our agenda. He was very helpful in learning what stop we needed to get off at on the Metro, as well as recommended places to eat in Alexandria, and of course walking directions. The breakfast buffet was great, and the eating area was spread out, much bigger than others I have stayed at. I normally feel like we are on top of people at breakfast, but this place was nice. My only wish was there there was more fruit options for breakfast, when we were there is was only melon, and some greenish bananas. But otherwise, breakfast was great.
It was easy to get to DC on the Metro, and we actually had a great weekend despite the shutdown. Only sleeping complaint was that our room was near the parking garage, and there were a lot of teenagers in our hotel the weekend we stayed, and they chose to whoop it up at 1am in the parking garage, and that woke me up.
We will visit DC again, and would definately stay here again.

Hi STom21. Thank you for taking time to provide your feedback from the recent stay here in Old-Town. We are sorry that you were not able to experience all that Washington D.C. has to offer due to the "shutdown". However, we are happy that you were able to find us here and stay in Historic Alexandria. We are thrilled that you took advantage of the various ammenities that not only our Hotel has to offer such as the breakfast, and our team here, but also some of the local attractions such as Historic King Street and the nearby WholeFoods. I do want to apologize for the noise levels during your stay as we always strive to ensure our guests have a quiet and enjoyable evening's rest. Also, I appreciate the feedback regarding the breakfast offerings as we are always trying to find ways to provide our guests with more selections and items to their liking.
