The close proximity to the Metro Station is the biggest selling point for this property. Also, the Staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean but it was a bit loud because of the Traffic from the highway and also, the annoying heating unit.
Overall, It was worth the price we paid and would probably stay there again because it was inexpensive and convenient. It was not close to downtown Alexandria, if that is what you are looking for. My husband and I had our car so it was easy enough to get down there but if you take the Metro over to King street, you are still about 15 minutes on foot to where the cool shops and restaurants are. If you intend on staying at the hotel to visit Washington DC, leave at least one afternoon to spend in Old Alexandria... it is quite charming.
Oh, one negative point to make about this hotel... They offer a seafood buffet on certain nights... We did not eat at the buffet but we could smell the fish from our room! The lobby, the elevator, everything stunk of seafood. Not sure if this is a common occurence but it was not enjoyable.
