I stayed at this hotel for one reason: I was attending a meeting there. This is a very ordinary business hotel. Nothing distinctive about it. I'd say it has seen better days, but it probably hasn't. I would not choose this hotel for a vacation/family stay.
Reception area, hallways look dated. Carpet in lobby areas could use a good shampooing.
My room was clean. Comfortable king-size bed. Harsh fluorescent lighting in the bathroom. Good strong shower. Decent view of the Potomac River (I was on the South side of the building).
I did not visit fitness room or pool.
Nice 10 block walk to King St., the main street in Old Town Alexandria - lots of shops, restaurants, historic buildings.
Quiet neighborhood, although it is in the flight path of National Airport - just a couple of miles away. Planes were landing on this approach for both days I was there, but it didn't bother me. There is an active railroad spur right next to the hotel and I did hear freight trains a couple of times, again, not a big deal.
I took free shuttle bus to airport. nice driver, good service.
Best feature of this hotel: FREE WIFI!
