Always stay in Kimpton when I can because of their consistent excellence.
LOCATION--nearly perfect. Within walking distance of unlimited restaurants, bars, and shopping. Reasonably located to the metro and Amtrak station.
STAFF--everyone was very friendly and responsive, from the bellmen to the maids.
DECOR--very modern and clean.
ROOM--normal Monaco funkiness, although my room was the smallest hotel room I have stayed at in years. Outside of that, sleep quality was great, bathroom nice and as always, stocked with all the things you could possibly need.
FITNESS ROOM--average. The room is on the small side and has 2 treadmills, 2 ellipticals, and a recumbent bike. Dumbbells up to 25#. Nice cable machine. More than enough to maintain fitness, but average compared to some chain hotels I've stayed in recently.
SUM--In the end, I would 100% recommend and I will stay here again if in Alexandria. I couldn't give a perfect rating because of a handful of very minor issues that I easily noticed (iron board and iron holders were cheaply attached and falling out of closet, no paper the first morning, and no water in fitness room one morning). I will also say the hotel is like a labyrinth, and I went up and down the 4 stairwells several times before I could figure out how to get where I wanted to go (I always try to take stairs).
