Throughout the year we make a number of trips to the DC area. In the past we stayed in the District, but for the past few years we have stayed in Alexandria. Love the town and the area. Last year, we stayed at this hotel for the first time and have returned every time we have visited Alexandria. The rooms are clean, comfortable and functional, the staff friendly and helpful, and the location is great for getting around.. Will definitely stay there on our next trip to DC.
