We enjoyed our stay at this B & B. Our room was clean & comfortable with many great amenities. Marie was an excellent hostess and her breakfast outstanding! She even had home made cookies before bed. Location was within easy walking distance to old town Alexandria.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit. This B&B was extremely welcoming, clean and the bed very comfortable. This B&B is in a great location to visit both Old Town Alexandria and DC. It is a couple of blocks from Old Town. The stop across the street will quickly take you directly to the DC metro which is a... More

Quiet comfortable place close to the hustle and bustle of DC. Marie was wonderful at sending us off with an excellent, filling breakfast that carried us well into the afternoon. Her hospitality and friendliness makes you feel very welcome. This is a great place to stay!

We enjoyed our stay at the Gatsby's B&B. The room was small but very clean and had all the amenities that you would need. The breakfast was over the top! Delicious and beautifully presented. The B&B is within walking distance of Old Town Alexander.

Marie is a fabulous hostess! Breakfasts were different and delicious. If you needed guidance as to where to eat and not to eat, Marie was informative. The location is a great spot and much to do. Everyone was friendly and happy. We had a great time and have decided to make it a every other year tradition. Wonderful B&B wouldn't... More

Gatsby's house was the perfect place for 2 couples. We shared the third floor, with 2 bedrooms and shared bath. Really comfortable well appointed rooms. Marie was helpful from the start, and made us feel right at home. Recommended great restaurants. Marie prepared a wonderful breakfast for us, and we were on our way to Mt Vernon. Thanks again, Marie!

Marie was so helpful from the moment I contacted her to inquire about her B&B. She made our first trip to Alexandria a memorable one. She allowed us to check in early so we could get a head start to DC for the cherry blossoms - she even provided us with metro cards to save us time with our travel.... More

We chose Gatsby's House based on reviews and we were not disappointed! We parked our car within the block and were able to walk to King Street, along the waterfront, and to Washington Street for dinner then back again. A good walk but conveniently away from the hustle and bustle of King Street. Marie is a gracious hostess and a... More

Great place! Location is close to river and quaint down down area. We enjoyed a run downtown and came across the open market Saturday morning. We went shopping in the afternoon. Saturday evening, we enjoyed a pub crawl. All activities were in walking distance. Breakfast was incredible both days.
