So disappointing. We were really looking forward to staying in this historic and beautiful hotel. However when we pulled up at 5:00 PM on a Friday there was no valet staff. I would’t complain but the hotel was supposed to be four stars. The problems continued when we tried to check in. There was one hotel employee to check all the parties in, and he was stuck sorting out a man who booked through a third party app and had no proof of his reservation. When I enquired if there was a manager on duty to help I was told NO. So we all waited for about 40 minutes. The hotel itself is over 110 years old, but the bones are gorgeous. There is so much potential here. The room was comfortable and thankfully clean, seeing as there seems to be a staff shortage. It seems the deficiencies I experienced could be alleviated through training and staffing, and a manager on duty. I hope things improve, it’s definitely full of potential

If I could give it a "0" I would because we did not get to stay there. We made a reservation for a 4 night stay - 2 weeks ahead of our stay. We showed up and they told us they did not have a room for us and claimed they called us and told us there were no rooms. Why would they call us and not the 3rd party we booked company we booked it through since we made the reservation with them? Nothing made sense...so we asked to see the manager and WOW she was one of the rudest ladies we have ever met (and believe me we have traveled all over the world). Martha Turner - I can not believe she is the manager of this hotel, anyway, she said we don't have a room for you and we will not accommodate you at another hotel. Thank goodness the 3rd party took care of us. DO NOT MAKE A RESERVATION AT THIS HOTEL UNLESS YOU WANT TO TAKE A CHANCE OF GETTING THERE AND NOT HAVING A ROOM!! Really Rude group of people

What a run down dump. Room was nasty. After seeing pictures of their lobby at Christmas I decided to book a week in the speciality suite 501. For the price the chain hotels in town are much nicer. This place was a run down dump. The room's air-conditioning sucks. I was covered in sweat every night. They even have signs on the doors warning not to turn the AC down too much, so they know their Air condition is a problem. The floors in the lobby check in area had trash all over them.

My husband had a work thing in Alexandria so I tagged along for a little getaway. The hotel is gorgeous. We went up to our room to see the door open and not clean for us. We called the front desk and the woman immediately met us upstairs to a new and cleaned room. I went to use the bathroom to discover it was clogged with handfuls of toilet paper. I again called the front desk and the woman was able to unclog it while we were at dinner. We were very disappointed in the lack of preparation but figured it was a fluke incident and left it at that. A few weeks later, my husband returned to that hotel for another work event. When he got to his room and saw it was ready for him but then noticed that the sink was full of beard trimmings from a previous stay and the trash was not removed. He was appalled. He had a rough day and just wanted to get home so he didnt say anything to the front desk. Though we love how beautiful this hotel is it is clearly horribly managed. The cleaning staff seem to obviously leave parts of the room unfinished. How can someone miss a clogged toilet and beard trimmings??? We are pretty forgiving people and realize things can slip through the cracks but this is ridiculous. Unfortunately, due to the proximity of the hotel to the courthouse (where my husband has to attend for work) he will have to continue staying there when his practice brings him to Alexandria.

a minute ago First we need to separate the people from the physical plant. The people we came in contact with were wonderful caring and helpful. However, the ownership of the physical plant is pennywise and pound foolish. There was a plunger in our bathroom which unfortunately was not merely there for aesthetics, needed to use it. The elevator was filthy, the water pressure in the shower was nearly non-existent, the lamp of the night table had a loose connection and it was difficult to simply turn it on and off as desired. At one time this must have been a nice historic hotel, now it is merely historic.
