We recently stayed 2 nights at this hotel.It was our second stay. Its location is close to the metro and Old Town Alexandra with great shopping and restaurants. They have a complimentary shuttle service to anywhere in the area that you need to go. Breakfast was good. Rooms clean. Price is reasonable.

This was the perfect place for visiting Washington DC. We were there on Labor Day so, contrary to what I expected, parking in DC was not a problem. With the added help of a handicap permit we got to see everything we wanted in one full day. I say this because we left a day earlier than planned and We... More

Free airport shuttle that you have to call for. And the shuttle will take you to other locations, within 3 miles, on a half hour schedule. The hotel has no elevator. The room had a little fridge and microwave, ironing board. Nice front desk staff. A few blocks from the hotel is a bike trail along the water for jogging.--... More

Good location and charming exterior and lobby, but the guest room, while clean, was coming apart. This hotel is in need of serious renovation. Bathroom especially. Water did not turn off all the way, paint was literally peeling off the ceiling and onto my head, mold/mildew growing where the paint was peeling. The resurfacing material used on the tile was...

This has been one of our favorite hotels for many years. Ownership changes have changed the atmosphere of The Old Colony Inn, but it is still a a favorite of ours. The elevator was broken preventing us from having breakfast and using the business center. The excellent staff did all they could to mitigate this inconvenience. We look forward to... More

Very convenient to DC and The Regan Airport. Plus good restaurants nearby in Alexandria. Older but well maintained property very good staff, helpful and friendly. The location, along Washington St leads directly to the GW Parkway a major route, so the location could not be better.

On the positive side, the staff was professional and helpful. Check in/out was efficient. And we appreciated the free parking and shuttle service.
