“Our Experience at Holiday Inn in Alexandria, Va.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

They were very kind, helpful, and considerate. They always asked us if we needed anything or could they help us . Very respectful and polite. The room and hotel was clean. The breakfast was good and the atmosphere was great. I certainly would stay again. They made us feel welcomed.
The metro is across from the hotel, very convenient. Also there are a few restaurants in walking distance.

Stayed here for Friday, July 5 thru Sunday, July 7th. In town for Nationals v Padres game on Saturday at Nationals Park. The hotel is directly across the street from the Eisenhower Avenue Metro Station----amazingly convenient. The Station, like all Metro stations, has free parking on the weekends but the hotel is so close we did not even need to move our car. Hotel parking was free and seemed plentiful.

Check-in on Friday was nice yet humid. There seems to be a real lack of ventilation in the common areas of the hotel including the lobby and the hallways. Elevator is a mite better; exercise room had no real ventilation and was a bit steamy when I visited on Saturday morning. Further the exercise room had no water in the water cooler and no towels available. Perhaps I got there before housekeeping had a chance to freshen up the exercise room for the day; I sure hope that was the case.

Room was nice. Two double beds with plenty of pillows and well-heeled air conditioning unit. Microwave and fridge on hand. Shower drain seemed to stop up when I was taking a shower; not sure why this occurred. Nice sitting chair and ottoman along with office desk and comfortable accompanying chair.

Breakfast was pretty good but probably not quite worth the $12.95 "special" rate. If you were inclined and able to go elsewhere for breakfast going elsewhere may be a better deal. Food was good; fresh fruit and nice selection--pineapple, grapes, cantaloupe, honeydew melon, bananas (one day only), oranges (one day only). Milk and yogurt were availalbe as were bagels, toast, and English muffins. Scrambled eggs on bar and the ability to have eggs cooked your way----I enjoyed my three egg whites on the second morning of my stay. Meat is the usual pork products--bacon and sausage. Apple juice, orange juice, and grapefruit juice were good too.

Interesting occurence on second day of breakfast: after being seated the male waiter took my breakfast voucher and proceeded to point to the "gratuity not included" language thereupon. I thought this was a bit forward and unusual. Ironically the waiter never checked on me and my brother to ask if we wanted coffee, specialty eggs, or anything. The only time he even visited our table was to remove my plate after we had spent about 25 minutes eating and were about to leave. You can imagine how this was acknowledged in his meager tip. Ironically the hostess actually asked me if I had everything I needed and when I told her that I wanted three egg whites she went directly to the kitchen and placed the order. Within 5 minutes I had my egg whites and thanked her for checking on us. This service snafu---the waiter not really waiting on our table----can be easily fixed.

All in all a pretty good stay. The air flow and quality in the common areas does need to be improved since the summer is upon us and it will only get hotter. Great, fresh, and clean property with excellent location. I will probably return as this was actually my second visit to the hotel.

Greetings True,

Your invaluable feedback is so appreciated on our end! Yes, the summers do get very warm here, especially in the lobby and the air flow with the two doors that open on each side of the hotel make it difficult for the cool air to stay in one place. It has been an ongoing battle simply due to the design of the building itself but one that our engineers are working to resolve this summer in order to reduce the humidity in the lobby area specifically.

To address your question in regards to the fitness center, yes it is refreshed continuously throughout the day and since it is open 24 hours, it is possible that guests use the facility at all hours and therefore potentially deplete the supply of towels and other items prior to the morning housekeeping shift being able to refresh them. But we do know this is important and make it a priority to check all of the supplies on a regular basis.

Your concerns with the wait staff in the restaurant have been addressed with the appropriate manager and this is not typical of the level of service we provide to our guests. You can be sure that during your next visit you will experience no such awkward exchange. With that said, please let us know if there are any special touches we can provide for your next stay- we are always happy to go that extra mile if it means you will have a great stay with us!

See you soon!

Attention to detail by management and the helpful, caring and friendly staff made this an incredible stay for our family. Beautiful rooms, excellent food and staff in the restaurant. Close proximity to the Metro for easy daily visits into DC. Very nice pool area. Highly recommend.

Stayed for 3 nights over the 4th of July. Great location for travel into DC without all the hassles of driving. Short walk to the Metro station. Hotel was clean and staff very friendly and accommodating.

We came to DC with our two children for a full week for family vacation. We did not rent a car so having access to the Metro was of key importance. The hotel was priced much lower than most in the area and the Metro was only a few blocks away. It is a little shocking when you pull up to the hotel and see how it is literally surrounded by freeways but with that said we were thrilled with our stay! There was no outside noise in our room. The Staff were helpful and friendly, especially one cheerful gal in the restaurant that my kids and I just loved! The rooms were clean, comfortable and had free wi-fi and a mini fridge. There is a movie theater and restaurants across the street from the Metro station and you can get to and from the Regan International Airport right off the Metro. We bought a weeks pass on the Metro and were able to pack each day full of amazing sights!!! Would absolutely stay here again if we travel to the area. We did not use the pool or the gym.
Down side: Pillows were terrible and the pricing of the restaurant.

You're not the first guest who has been a little surprised at our location to the freeways of DC, but we have so much to offer in the way of accessibility to the regions many sites as a result and we are glad to hear that you found a handful upon your arrival. The free parking combined with the metro directly across the street really makes our hotel worth while.

We are working on the pricing of our dining room, but we are always open to suggestions for our guest rooms. Thank you so much for letting us know you are not a fan of the new pillows, your comments are appreciated and will be shared with not only the housekeeping department, but the general manager as well so we can use this information when making decisions about our soft goods in the future.

Please think of us when making your hotel arrangments the next time you and your family are in DC, we will happily provide you with a brand new set of pillows for your room!

Stayed for 2 nights in May 2013 for my wedding anniversary. The room was clean and the furnishings were up to date. The bathroom fixtures appeared to have been updated, but the tub was not updated. Great location. The staff was friendly and helpful. They took the time to explain the metro system to us...since this was our first time using the system. Our parking was free and we paid the rate that included free breakfast. Our room was on the 4th floor, facing metro. We did not hear any noise from the street or metro. The hotel is very convenient to the metro, less than 5 min walk. 20-25 min metro ride into DC. They have a shuttle, but it does not have a regular operating schedule, so you can't really depend on the shuttle. There are a couple of restaurants that are also less than a 5 min walk as well as a movie theater. I would definitely stay at this location again.

Friendly and helpful staff can really make or break a hotel, that is what we believe here and we are so glad they took the time to explain the metro system to you. There is nothing worse than finding yourself lost somewhere on the red line, far from your intended destination. It has happened to the best of us!

Thank you so much for leaving your wonderful feedback about our hotel and our staff, they will be shared with everyone. We hope to see you again the next time you are in our beautiful city!

Thank you BigCS for not only staying with us, but for taking the time to leave your comments after departing for home.

Next time you stay with us, please come and join us in either the Lounge (great happy hour specials and three televisions with tons of programming to pass the time) or Dutch's Grill with great food in both! We'd love to roll out the latest special our Chef has prepared for you to try first hand!

Thank you again and see you soon!
