This Holiday Inn is located in a great place for access to the DC Metro rail system, as well as to highways leading in/out of town. The metro station is just 2 blocks from the hotel. The hotel is quite old, but has been renovated with modern amenities. Even though the old shows through a little, the room had a... More

Since we have your comfort as our most important goal in mind, we replaced every bed, pillow, and linen in addition to investing in a 49" flat panel TV in every guest room. Our feedback... More

I stayed here with my family while I visited Washington DC. It is about 15-20 minutes from all the main attractions in DC, 10 minutes away from the beautiful town of Alexandria with good restaurants and bars and still away from all the madness in a quiet place. Hence a good location. Hotel was clean and staff were friendly, up... More

My husband and I stayed for two nights and the service was amazing. The room is clean, the employees are so sweet, respectful, and friendly. We planned on staying here again the next time we visit with our four children. #lovlystay.

Today, my 9 year old son and I had a long day of driving and sightseeing. We were so exhausted that going out to dinner was not happening. We decided to just eat at the hotel bar. I have never had a more pleasurable dining experience. The bartender, Cheryl, went out of her way to make my son and I... More

The hotel staff is friendly and courteous. The shuttle service is an extra bonus to Old Town Alexandria. The location is perfect. Quick train ride to DC. My husband and granddaughter relaxed at the pool after a long day of sight seeing. Hotel price was fair and the hotel breakfast was delicious. I Highly recommend this hotel.

We brought our church youth group to this property following a flight delay which resulted in an additional and unexpected overnight stay.

Everyone at the hotel is friendly and helpful. We were greeted every time we entered or left the hotel. Our bathtub was not draining and they sent a repairman immediately. They also have a small store for essentials and snacks in the lobby and a large water dispenser. The room is medium size and has a fridge, microwave, Kuerig machine,... More

Very good experience. When we first checked in, our room smelled slightly like fresh cigarette smoke. I tried to call down to the office but there were several people in line checking in.

Overall clean, friendly, comfortable. Slept great, the pool had a lifeguard and was perfect. Will stay again next time we are up to DC. Good people. The food was just ok, but expected for what is basically a business hotel. Halls were a bit dark and being remodeled, but ok since we slept in our room :)
