I have stayed here many times when it was a Holiday Inn, and even then it was a nice hotel with an unbeatable location in Old Town Alexandria. If you haven't been to Old Town before, keep in mind that, unlike the Hotel Monaco, most hotels which advertise being in "Old Town" are a long way from the center of activity along the Potomac River. The facility has been totally re-done and re-branded and the results are impressive. It is very chic and comfortable and the staff, as before, is very helpful and responsive. Room service food is excellent. Price is very reasonable for this market at this quality level. Will continue to be my first choice when visiting the D.C. area. Only 10-15 minutes from Reagan Airport.
