The CrownPlaza in Alexandria VA is a modern, well maintained hotel. The entrance lobby is spacious and welcoming with a small amount of seating and a few computers for guest use. A very attractive staircase, decorated with attractive plants leads up to the bar, pub, restaurant and meeting rooms on the second floor.
Bedrooms are spacious with most having fine views of the Potomac. From those looking north one can clearly see the Capitol. Bathrooms are of reasonable size. A nice feature is a “night light” for those of us who have to pay a visit through the night.
The breakfast buffet is basic, but competitively priced. The bar and pub area has a nice ambience and the food served is good, without being “gourmet”.
The hotel's greatest asset is its staff. They are without exception friendly and efficient and make guests very welcome.
Inevitably a hotel located within 30 minutes walk of the centre of “Old Alexandria” attracts conferences and corporate functions. There was a major one while we stayed there. But there was no intrusion into our enjoyment as private guests. The layout of the facilities and the skill of the management ensured that both the conference attendees and ourselves had a good time without getting in each others' way.
