Winter Snowstorm 2009: after spending the night stranded between both airports and all flights cancelled the next day....I found a little oasis in Alexandria with a great rate for stranded passengers. Very comfy and quiet room...friendly staff...hot chocolate in the lobby. As comfy as it was, I spent most of my time in their Business Center trying to get home for Christmas while all flights were cancelled.
Finally on Sunday morning the storm broke but there were no taxis anywhere. The concierge at the hotel offered to take 3 of us to National Airport where we would have better luck getting a taxi to Dulles. He even found a taxi driver for me who was willing to mkae the drive. He really went above and beyond to help me.
Thanks to this comfy hotel with the beautiful room and accommodating staff!!
