I am so very disappointed in this hotel. I made a mistake relying on the brand BonVoy. There were no usb port for charging devices, and the room smelled moldy. Other than the location on King St. there is nothing special about this property.

We stayed here for 5 days the end of May 2020. The sink was clogged, the wallpaper was coming off in the bathroom. There two towels in the bathroom and min-bars of soap and shampoo. NO USB ports or any electrical support for phones, pads, etc. We were "upgraded" to a room with a balcony. It has filthy, full of bird droppings and next to an air intake vent. The entire stay we say ONLY the front desk person (behind a table and plexiglass shield, wearing a mask. So, of course we could not hear a word said. We saw no one cleaning, vacuuming, etc. No rooms service and no room cleaning. We were suppose to get a breakfast with the room, instead we were handed a listing of places to eat (most closed in am) and were "awarded" some points. The day after our stay they charged our credit card for an additional about $250 without explanation.

Dear GustavSpeed, i appreciate you taking the time to write a review about your experience at The Alexandrian. Needless to say, I would have preferred a rave review instead of the review you have written. Please accept my apology for the service issues you experienced while a guest with us. Please know that we take cleanliness at the hotel seriously. We are following guidelines set forth by Marriott International, Sage Hospitality and the State of Virginia, to ensure that all cleaning protocols and physical distancing best practices are adhered to. Although many of our staff had been furloughed during this ongoing pandemic, I am pleased to say that we now have an almost full engineering team back at work. I know they are focused on preventative maintenance. Additionally, we also have a housekeeping team to focus on guest needs. In an effort to minimize close contact with guests and their belongings, housekeeping service is only available upon request. The safety of our guests and associates is extremely important to us. We can and will do better. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me personally if I can be of additional assistance. You can reach me at bert.leroux@thealexandrian.com. Sincerely, Bert le Roux Director of Operations

I love Alexandria and the hotel is in a lovely location on King Street. Yes, there are areas for improvement such as the fitness center and the heating in the rooms. But that didn't bother me because of the friendly staff, especially during the unique and difficult times that hotels are experiencing. If you take the metro to King Street, make sure to take the free trolley ride which will drop you off a block away from the hotel (N Royal St stop). The hotel is across the street of a CVS, Taco Bell and many other dining options. The hotel restaurant - Jackson 20 - had an amazing breakfast and decent prices compared to other hotel restaurants in downtown DC. The moment you walk around the hotel, you can feel the history. I enjoyed the decor of the lobby and hallways and look forward to returning back and staying longer once things return to normal for travelers.

I chose this hotel based on its location, in Old Town Alexandria. This is the only thing the hotel has going for it. I experienced several problems during my stay. The first one is that I had to check out 3 rooms before I found one where the Heating/Cooling system worked. Next, my room keys repeatedly stopped working. Each time, I was told by the staff to keep the keys away from electronic devices. I have never had this issue at any other hotel. I obeyed the reprimand, but it continued to happen. The phone in my room does not work (I chose working HVAC over a working phone). The bed is sagging and needs to be replaced. In the fitness center, only one piece of equipment was fully functional. This place is really a disgrace to the Marriott family of brands.

Perfect location to shop, dine, and just walk about. A little street noise at night if you face King Street. Rooms and bathrooms are spacious and clean. Parking is tight underground and expensive, par your own $32 per night. Pet friendly!
