I stayed here during the Thanksgiving weekend. I had originally planned to stay one night here before staying with family, but instead ended up staying here during my entire stay in the area. My stay here at the Holiday Inn in Alexandria was so perfect in more ways than I can imagine. Everything about this hotel was so swell such...

We went to a Redskins night game and stayed here that evening since it was on our way back to southern Va. We had a long hard day and night so the last thing we wanted when straggling in at midnight was problems. Happily there were none. It was right off the beltway, It was exactly as was ordered and...

We admit, our bathrooms were designed a bit on the small side and if we could add more room to them we would in a heartbeat. However, it seems that everything else was to your liking, other than perhaps a better Redskins game outcome? Thank you very much for staying with us during your trip and please do come and...

A group of us decided to stay here for the Metro was nearby and parking was free. It turned out great for us. The Metro along with nearby restaurants is all within a 5 minute walk. Everyone at the hotel was very helpful in anything we needed. Will return on all future trips.

With so much to do and see here in Alexandria and access to downtown DC, why stay anywhere else? We truly appreciate the time it took to leave your comments about your stay with us, especially right before the busy holiday season. The next time you're in town, we will have your room ready and of course we'll be waiting...

Three of us stayed here for the weekend when we were running the Marine Corp Marathon and were very pleased with our stay. The cost was very reasonable. The location is great, only 1 block from the Metro and restaurants are just down the street. Our room, as well as the entire hotel was very nice and comfortable. The staff...

My son & I stayed 5 nights here while visiting DC. The service was excellent! I requested a room on the 8th floor away from noise & it was not an issue.

We are working on getting a complimentary breakfast here, but due to brand standards, the full service Holiday Inn hotels still are not quite there. Those perks are still reserved for our counterparts, the Holiday Inn Express hotels. But hopefully in the near future we will be able to offer the same for our guests! Thank you very much for...

Location across the street from Metro station could not be beat for DC sightseeing. Room was comfortable and clean for the price. Coffee pot, refrigerator, and microwave made simple breakfast possible. Soundproofing was good. Heard a little road noise in the morning. Friendly and professional staff. Free parking a plus.

I travel often and spend about 10 days a month in hotels. Our experience here was the worst customer service that I have ever experienced at a hotel. On top of waiting over 10 minutes for the desk to check us in (there was no line) they threatened they would tow our vehicle if we didn't put a hotel placard...

Hello Brandon, It is so disheartening to hear your experience was not up to par with what was expected of our staff and more importantly was you were expecting of your hotel stay when you arrived. We pride ourselves on our customer service and to read that you were treated in such a fashion during your check-in process is simply...

Ours was a 5 night family stay while visiting DC for the second time.

The best part about staying outside of the city is easy access as well as the history of a different part of the city to visit, we agree.

We love hearing such a positive review!
