“Always nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

I live in NYC & go to DC often for fun.

We have stayed in quite a few hotels but this one is in a really cool area.
Alexandria VA has lots of cute shops, food & a waterfront! It's really charming here.
It's only moments away from DC, & you can even take the metro from here!

I recommend this hotel, it's clean & very comfy (the pillows!! :).
And it's a good destination for weekend travelers with kids (like me).

Go see Mt Vernon!!! George & Martha lived there!! Really nice place.

Room Tip: All suites! All good!

* The coffee is normally not free, but if you put the "no housekeeping" tag on your door, you can get a voucher for the hotel cafe, which you can exchange for two free cups of coffee if you have the gumption to just hand that over and dare them to ask you for the fifty cents.

Comfy room, good location, short walk to the transit station at Braddock Rd. There's a CaBi bike share station nearby. It's a short walk to King St or there's a shuttle. I liked it. My dad was upset there was no free HBO or free parking, but this is a nice hotel in the city, not a Motel 6 on the highway somewhere.

It's your basic Sheraton. Nothing too fancy or elaborate, but definitely clean and comfy. I stay here 5-6x a year for work and it's always a great stay. Looks like it was updated a few years ago. My only complaint is that the showers are so powerful that they hurt, and cause wind to make the shower curtain flap around.

Thank you very much for your feedback. Please let us know when you are here next time so we can look into our water pressure. While the hotel offers all the amenities of a Sheraton we like to point out that our hotel is all-suites so our guests have more room to play. Again, thanks for your feedback and we look forward to having you back very soon!

As our plane broke on the tarmac at DCA. The airline put us up here for the night. it was a great experience everyone at the hotel was very sympathetic to our situation, and we had a great "extra night" in Dc because of the staff.

Room Tip: try to get one facing the river. very pretty. and a quick walk to the water front

We were here for a family reunion. The location was convenient to be able to walk to restaurants and the Metro station. Reasonable price for a very clean and nice hotel. There are also restaurants in the hotel. Each room has a bedroom and sitting area with a small cooler and microwave. Definitely check this out when you are in town!

Was in town visiting family and was hoping to find a hotel that was conveniently located. This hotel was convenient to Old Town (but may be a bit far to walk for some, there is a shuttle that runs in the evening to King Street) and Reagan National. I picked up a rental car from the airport but returned it before checking out so the airport shuttle (which runs every 30 mins) came in very handy... it picks up at #5 and #9 at the arrivals curbside. Not sure if the shuttle will take you to the King Street Metro station though. If you want to rent a car, there was an enterprise rental counter in the hotel lobby if you need to rent a car to take you out further such as Williamsburg or Mount Vernon.

We had a suite with a king bed and a pull out sofa with a flat screen TV in bedroom and living area. The room also had a microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker and sink which were all good to have for our stay. The rooms are nice but just be aware that although there is a door between the living/seating area and the bedroom it was a french double door with window and lace-like curtains so you could see if the was light was on in either room. Wasn't too bad but would have preferred a full door so we wouldn't bother each other watching TV or staying up later. Otherwise both beds were comfortable and the room was clean and quiet. We are SPG gold members so we had free wi-fi and it worked well especially since we had a number of devices ... iPhones, iPads, computers, etc. One feature I would have liked to have in the room was a safe, I could have left it in the safe at the front desk but decided to take all my mobile devices with me.

Our package included breakfast buffet which was nothing special but a typical breakfast ... waffles, eggs, potatoes, bacon, sausages, oatmeal, cereal, pancakes, fruit, yogurt ,etc. It was enough for us to start the day with a full stomach.

Depending on what I was planning to do, I would stay here again but getting to the Metro may not be easy. Parking your car is not cheap but it is comparable to other hotels in the area. You can park yourself which was not an option in another Old Town hotel we stayed out a couple of years ago(valet only).

Room Tip: Had room 1001 and was relatively quiet but there was some construction noise from a building site ne...

I frequently park in the underground garage at Sheraton Suites Old Town Alexandria. Shuttle runs promptly on the half hour unless they have to take an airline crew to the airport in which case they will leave early. Good idea to get there 15 minutes early. Like this parking option especially in the winter so I don't have to scrape snow and ice off my windshield. Arrangement is through Global Parking. Cheaper than parking in DCA economy lot. Staff at desk in hotel is always friendly when checking in to park.

Thanks so much for your kind words. Our parking rate for those that fly out of Reagan National is a great deal and even better if you need to stay the night before an early morning flight or want to avoid traffic. I am glad you could take advantage of it and hope your travels will bring you here often!
