I reserved 2 rooms here for the Alexandria Arts Festival which is held in Old Town. I got a great rate on Hotwire for this hotel, which made our stay even sweeter!
I check in for myself and for our friend's room. The woman at the front desk, Rashad (I think that was her name), was extremely helpful and kind. I really felt welcomed. We were given 2 king rooms on the 11th floor. Our rooms were across the hall from each other and both had nice views of the Potomac. The were standard hotel fare for the most part, but nice. The beds were very comfortable and I slept very well.
It is about an 8 block walk to King Street, the heart of Old Town, which was not too bad considering the weather was good that day. They do have a shuttle that runs to King St., but it did not start running till 2 pm. They have a restaurant in the hotel, but we did not use it. About a block down and 2 blocks up is The Royal Restaurant, which has a fantastic breakfast buffet, which we always try to visit when we in Alexandria.
I would definitely stay at the Crowne Plaza again!
