My wife and I stayed her in July 2011 and found it to be a good standard of hotel. Staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful.
I read in other reviews about aircraft noise, never heard a thing. Our room overlooked the car park and I was worried about car doors banging, but slept like a log – big bed and firm mattress. Room was spacious, dark wood and good quality tv (that's just the tv, not the programmes!!!)
We'd overdone the museums the previous day in Washington, and just wanted a day to chill, so it was a nice touch to have a shuttle bus to take us down in to Alexandria where we walked around, had a Starbucks, sat on benches, and just got a feel of the place. (Liked the Baptist Church car park sign included here.)
Back to the hotel to try out the bar, which was surprisingly quiet. (Is that because it was summer?)
Ate out both nights, once in Alexandria and once at the Italian across the road.
Ticked all the boxes for me as a stopover hotel.
