“Great Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

We cannot comment on the value since we used another means to book the reservation. However, when we arrived we were greeted by a wonderful young lady named Griselda. She was professional, friendly, courteous, knowledgeable and EXTREMELY helpful. She was our first experience walking in the door and she was great!
Then we headed up to our rooms, which were clean. The woman that cleans the rooms was very friendly and accommodating. She was wonderful and always had a smile.
We had breakfast there every morning and the food was good and always hot. The staff there was absolutely amazing as well. They made our breakfast time enjoyable with their smiles and service.
Crowne Plaza-Alexandria truly has an amazing staff, I am certain the people will keep coming back because of the staff, if they don't already do.
Thank you for the great experience.

I can't talk much about value since I got a Priceline deal. But the place was clean, quiet, and comfy. Not a palace, but perfectly fine. No need to pay for parking if you plan to be out in the car most of the day -- street parking is free outside business hours (and all Sunday). Old Town is a long walk away if you're up for it.

Though I was able to get a good price on a discount travel site, the original quote was really pricey. Staff wasn't overly friendly, though on check out she did take off my internet charge. Sorry who charges for internet these days. STOP IT...Also, was charged $7.50 for a draft in the bar one night. Crazy...think it was only 12 oz as it fit into a coffee go cup...they advertise a shuttle to the metro, but actually you go to the airport and then find it yourself...not very pleasant experience going through Ronald Regan airport looking for a metro and then being picked up at the airport from the shuttle. Alexandria itself is a very nice place to stay, terrific location..

We traveled to Washington DC back in early April this year, which is considered a high season (During the Blossoms festival). Hotel rooms in DC were really expensive so we decided to book a room at Crowne Plaza in Alexandria and take the train to DC. I booked my room with a river view through booking website. When we arrived for check-in, we were told that our room doesn't have a view because all the rooms with a view were occupied. I was certainly not happy and what made it worse is that the reception staff were not very friendly or helpful. After I complained, they gave me the room with a view.

The room itself was not bad. It was clean and spacious. The only thing it doesn't have a safe so don't count on leaving any valuable items in the room if you carry any.

Our reservation included buffet breakfast. The buffet included serials, oatmeal, scrambled eggs, sausages, bacon, potatoes, cookies and muffins, which was fine for us.

The hotel is about 15 - 20 minutes walk from the subway station (which goes to all the attractions in DC). This was OK for us as we don't mind the walk but it may not be the same for others. It is also 10 minutes walk to King street in Old Town Alexandria.
