I enjoyed our stay here. We upgraded to a large room that was comparable to an efficiency apartment. It was clean and worked out great for us.

Nov. 21, 2016 Big thanks to Tiffany at the front desk. I had to unexpectedly stay here overnight after a flight cancellation and was well taken care of by the staff. Not a 5-star hotel by any means, but definitely safe and warm on a cold November night in D.C.

We stayed this passed summer and was happy with everything but the breakfast (as others have noted). Very overpriced for what you get. We do plan on staying again in the near future but will order breakfast from room service instead or bring our own. The location is tops. Great walking distance to several restaurants and attractions. Being dog friendly... More

We stayed at this hotel because it was convenient to my dh uncle's home. The rest of his family was also staying here. The hotel served its purpose. Our room had a stale odor but the other rooms we visited didn't have the same smell. Don't bother with the breakfast because it definitely was not worth the price. We had... More

I'm a spire elite member of holiday inn and am a bit disappointed in the property. Room is good, but that's about it. They really don't do anything special for you.

Standard Hoilday Inn, getting a bit lacklustre in the rooms but OK for the price in the USA. We were in Alexandria for a funeral and so were not going to enjoy it much anyway. What made a difference was 'Shawn' on Reception. We panicked over changes of number of rooms needed, length of stay and kept changing our requirements.... More
