This hotel is easily accessible off of the highway, in walking distance of the metro, several eating establishments and a movie complex. A shuttle is available at the hotel. The parking is plentiful and is free.

In reading through all of the reviews, I was really confused and curious as to what to expect when I arrived at this hotel. And, it's taken me a few days to think about what I wanted to write considering my experience, which, overall, was excellent. The staff at this hotel is amazing. It is what you'd expect from a...

This hotel is pretty much your typical Holiday Inn. The staff was very friendly and helpful when checking in and they gave me a nice bag filled with goodies for being a rewards member.

The hotel must be old because I've felt drafts everywhere; from the room to the restaurant. All of the staff have been very helpful and more than friendly.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Alexandria SW hotel (room 724) for four nights (Friday, January 18 through January 21, 2013). We ate at the hotel’s Dutch Grill for 3 of four nights.
