The location is great. Walk to King street for some of the best restaurants in the town or go downstairs to Trademark. About 7 minutes walk to Metro Alexandria Station. The hotel also offers courtesy shuttle. You are about 15 minutes car ride from DCA airport. The gym on the 3rd floor is adequately equipped. The swimming pool has life guard. The staff are well trained and very hospitable. Parking is valet only and $15/day. I paid $35 to $40 at hotels in downtown DC before. Yellow line Metro takes you to DCA in two stops. The same line can take to DC in 15 min. My coworkers always blame the "heavenly" bed in the room for why he over slept.
