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.

I was looking forward to our stay since the pictures and many of the reviews were positive but unfortunately I felt this hotel was disappointing. On the positive side, the staff was professional and helpful. Check in/out was efficient. And we appreciated the free parking and shuttle service. We were on the second floor and while lugging all our stuff... More

We were very pleased with the comfort of our room. Everything was clean and well-stocked. The staff were all extremely helpful. The complementary shuttle service was incredibly convenient and prompt. It really made the quaint downtown and the nearby train station incredibly accessible. All of the shuttle drivers were great, but Sean went out of his to be warm and... More

We had a wonderful breakfast every morning, comfortable beds, refrigerator in room, nice selection of channels on the TV for our kids and very friendly staff. The best part for us was that we did not have to drive anywhere.... More

Quiet location with helpful and friendly staff. Spent 4 nights in a great room with comfortable mattresses. Free parking, free shuttle to Reagan Airport, trains and Downtown Alexandria. 15 minutes walk through safe area to King St. with different great restaurants, bars and stores.
