Very nice atmosphere, great location if you like Alexandria, hotel staff very helpful but not necessarily up to speed on how to get around Washington DC. Hospitality hour was great. Room we had was well appointed with some nice amenities i.e. bath robes. Down side is the HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) kept us awake it was so noisy. Keys had to be reprogrammed 4 times which was a real problem since we were on the top floor in the room furthest away from the front desk. Lighting in the bathroom is poor and on the yellowish side so it could be an issue for the ladies who are fastidious about applying makeup. Lighted magnifying mirror would be a huge improvement. May be back...not sure. FYI the rate we paid was $179 per night.
