“Good value, clean and comfortable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2010

The hotel is situated close to the Potomac River and some local shops. The room was spacious, comfortable and clean. The facilities were great but the location may not be convenient to travellers without a car. However, the price was reasonable and this hotel certainly represents value for money.

Rooms are fairly spacious and clean. The pool was either non-existant or closed. We were sent over to the holiday inn to use the pool, which was also closed.

Ignore the poor reviews you see. I imagine they were written before the hotel was refurbished. We found it immaculate, with a large, clean and very well equipped room and a superb view of the Potomac River from the 12th floor. Parking is free overnight after 5pm on the road outside, so you can avoid the $20 parking charge. Have breakfast at Perk's just across the road - lovely food and offers a full English if you prefer it. We would definitely return. We booked through a third party and got amazing value!

It has been renovated about 2 years ago but the furniture (side table) and room carpets show more than reasonable wear and tear. The location is not close to King St. but it is very close to the river.

Went to DC for the July 4th and got this through priceline. The location is very good, about 7 miles from DC downtown and was a easy drive to the hotel. The hotel itself is maintained very well. Very clean, nice carpets, beautiful common areas. The rooms are very nice as well. We got one with two double beds and the beds were very comfortable, with lots of plushy pillows and nice linens. The bathroom compared to the room size was a little smaller. But since the layout was nice, the space usage was very efficient and very comfortable. We could see the Washington monument at a distance and that was a plus. Also our room had a partial river view and that was excellent too.

The maid service was fine, cleaned the room and it was perfect when we returned. There was a power outage one night in the Alexandria area. The hotel staff were very cooperative and tried to answer all the questions and kept the guests calm. So over all very nice experience.

Few things you need to know before booking this hotel. They don't have a pool. Also they charge $20 for overnight car parking. If you have a priority club membership, this drops to $10.

We attended our son's wedding and were delighted with the accommodations, friendly staff, and service we received. We 40 guests spend the weekend and everyone was charmed by the hotel and the staff. It is located .5 miles from the heart of Old Town but was close enough for everything we needed. The shuttle to/from the airport served us well. There were several restaurants within a short walk. It was a great setting for the wedding celebration. The hotel did an excellent job with all of the food and drink service associated with a wedding of 150 people. We had a great time with no issues. I highly recommend the hotel to anyone.

I booked this hotel without knowing the exact location of nearby metro stations etc. If I were to book again, I would definately stay closer to King Street , Crystal City, or in DC. This hotel was nice, but the transportation options were limited. Walking to and from the Metro stations nearby is not an option- they are too far and not safe. The hotel has a shuttle to and from the airport metro and King street (but the the King street metro). The hours and frequency were just a little limited for us, and if we were closer to a metro, we could have come and gone more freely.
