My first stay at this cozy little boutique hotel, but will definitely not be my last. Only about 50 rooms which allows them to FOCUS on customer service. Really enjoyed the manager's wine social each night and sing along in the bar on Tuesday. The hotel staff was extremely attentive and this hotel is totally pet friendly at no extra charge. Conveniently located in Old Town Alexandria, walking distance to Metro as well as all the restaurants and shops. Price was very reasonable for the area. No pool or fitness center, but their sister hotel about 6 blocks away has both available to guests.
