This hotel is more traditional than one would expect from the Kimpton brand, but you'll still find exceptional service and design. The room was charming with its four-poster bed and faux fireplace, and the antique feel was balanced with a few modern Kimpton touches. The staff went above and beyond to help us celebrate a birthday with style, and we enjoyed every minute of our long weekend. You'll feel like family every time the doorman greets you while coming and going. The location is perfect to explore Old Town Alexandria shops and restaurants, so bring your walking shoes and an empty stomach.
The only strange moment was visiting the hotel bar for a 10pm nightcap to find a group enthusiastically singing along to a small band playing "hits" from Barry Manilow and the Carpenters. Say what?
