“Nice place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

The hotel was very clean, comfy beds, and have great restaurant in there too. We had a few things that could have been better - Shuttle service to King Street doesn't start until after 2pm. It's not a bad walk, but it would be nice to get down there a little earlier by shuttle. Also, the cleaning staff knocked on our door and opened it without even saying "house keeping" or letting us know who they were and there wasn't enough time to get to the door to open it for them. It was a little noisy in the mornings with trucks and stuff going by, but other than that, the rooms were mostly quiet.

Our $120 nite weekend rate was great for this area of DC. It is a very nice, clean, comfortable hotel. All of the staff were polie and helpful. Close to all of the action in Old Town. The hotel offers transportation back and forth to Old Town running a shuttle hourly and the airport. We opted to walk along the Potomoc waterfront to Old Town about 6 blocks awat. There are fantastic unobstructed views of the river from the East facing rooms. The breakfast buffet had a lot of offerings. It was 12.99 which makes it a bit pricey if you have a family but the convenience is nice and we'd probably spend at least that elsewhere.

Room Tip: East side has great views

Spent two nights here as part of a Cosmos tour. Found the hotel very clean and good quality furnishings. Excellent staff and very friendly. Possibly just a bit far out of city. Excellent dining in King St nearby.

Last time I stayed at the hotel, I was told the hotel was going to be offering free bike rentals in the near future! What a treat! I rented a bike from across the street and WOW is all I can say about the bike trails in Virginia/Maryland.

I have stayed at this hotel for the past 3 years and this trip was the first time I rented the bike. Do it.......you will love it.

The hotel is perfectly located in Old Town Alexandria and all that DC has to offer. Its pricing is reasonable and its service is good.

Some of the hotel rooms have sensational views.........

Room Tip: ask for the river view......towards DC......

Nice hotel. We were surprised at all the fees for parking, WIFI, and no breakfast included for with rate. I had trouble connecting to WIFI and the front desk wasn't very helpful. I had come down to front desk, a clerk helped, signed us with Priority Club, it helped with some fees. On our last night, we came back from dinner and found our door not shut, as if someone just left. Lucky for us, nothing was taken. Overall not bad.

This hotel is perfectly located in Old Town Alexandria. Close enough to many eating establishments. The hotel shuttle provides free trips to the King Street for many restaurants and shops. To get to DC, you can either take a taxi, an 8 block walk to the nearest metro at Braddock or you could deal with the hotel shuttle which will take you to the further located metro station at the Ronald Reagan airport. We were pretty comfortable at this hotel. Pretty clean if a little bit worn and old. On our final day at the hotel, we forgot to leave a tip for the maid service. After a long day in DC, we walked into our room and at first I thought the maid service was not done but noticed our towels had been replaced and trash cans emptied and that was it!!! The bed cover had been thrown over the beds and not tucked, the comforter that we had tossed to the side was on the floor. The carpet was not vaccumed and there were no shampoo or conditioner bottles and the table was not wiped or cleaned up. I guess they enjoyed the tips we gave them and were pretty mad for not receiving their tip.
