Wonderful hospitality in a perfect location in old town Alexandria! This was our families first visit to the DC area. We chose this hotel based on other reviewers commenting on the location… we like to be close to everything so our kids can step out and start sight seeing right away! The hotel is classically appointed throughout and the rooms are spacious and well decorated. We were upgraded to deluxe rooms (Titanium Bonvoy membership) and immediately appreciated the extra space and street views of Old Town. The restaurant was closed for renovations, so I can’t comment on the food and restaurant staff, but the front desk was quick to recommend their favs (and they gave us 1,000 awards points back on our account). The trolley runs every 15 minutes and brings you to the metro, which was super convenient. Overall I highly recommend the Alexandrian. Thank you for the hospitality!

Room Tip: The trolley runs from 11am-11pm, so early birds need to walk to the Metro.

The Alexandrian Hotel has all the luxury of a Marriott Autograph Collection hotel while still maintaining the conveniences of a larger hotel (i.e. parking garage, restaurant on site, etc). I was here on business for an extended stay (>30 days) and I can't praise the staff enough. The GM Sam was extremely accommodating and everyone was always working to improve my stay. The hotel is perfectly situated in Old Town Alexandria just steps from the Farmer's Market, King Street, and restaurants galore!

Chic hotel!!! The room and the furniture is very nice. I was on the last floor thinking I would have a nice view but the windows is so small and high that we dont see outside! The ac was also really loud and didnt cool the room very much! The location is perfect walking distance to the restaurant district and Beautiful typicals historics houses but parking and room are quiet expensive! 250$ -33$ per night! Even thow the hôtel is very nice it wasnt a big wow expérience.

We stayed here after our road trips to the Delaware coast and Philly before our flight home. We arrived quite late from Philly and were welcomed by a very pleasant lady at the front desk. I had asked in advance for a feather free room as I’m very allergic to down feather bedding but the room we were given was not feather free. We slept later than expected as we had to wait for the bedding to be replaced. I spoke to Sam S. the manager who was apologetic and graciously made things right for us by covering our parking and giving us points. As a titanium elite member, they offered a $30 credit for me and my husband for breakfast at their restaurant King & Rye. The breakfast entrees we ordered were very tasty. Sam also covered the remaining balance of our breakfast bill. The hotel is tastefully decorated and is located conveniently near Old Town and the waterfront. If we ever return to this area, we would consider staying here again.

The Alexandria Hotel 480 King Street in Alexandria Virginia has a European flair however very clean. The staff is outstanding. The safe in room 649 needed repair. The maintenance man came quickly (within minutes) after contacting the front desk. This patron was well pleased with the quick response to request. Would certainly return whenever traveling to the area again.

Well, this place isn't the same since Marriott bought it. The staff isn't as nice or knowledgeable and the facility (rooms, hallways, lobby, even the restaurant) don't seem to have been updated. It is as though they are mooching off of the design work Hotel Monaco did without providing the high quality service or keeping things up to date. The a/c unit in my room was near the window in my room and all of the cold air stayed over there- no ceiling fan, no circulation. Water pressure was paltry and the pillows were absurdly small. There are quite a few hotel options in DC / Northern Virginia and I won't stay here again without some major changes.

Nice hotel that was previously known as Monaco as well as a holiday inn. Yes, it’s been remodeled and updated. Terrific location in old town area. Great parking under ground. Decent Wi-Fi and a comfortable bed with standard linen quality.

This is by far one of the worst hotels I’ve ever stayed at. We called a day before our arrival to see if we might possibly be able to get an early check in. I spoke to a front desk clerk, who immediately cut me off before I could even finish my sentence and told me to call back the next day on our way. We called on the way as rudely requested, and were treated the exact same way. I understand if a hotel isn’t able to accommodate an early check in, what I did not appreciate was the instant attitude we received. We reserved a bi-level suite. When we arrived, we were told that the people that had our room requested a late checkout and our room still wasn’t ready. Again we tried to be understanding, but the front desk clerk we dealt with had a serious need of a training lesson in customer service. She cared less about us or our situation. After a very brief discussion, she said she’d call us when our room was ready. Of course, she didn’t. We had to be in DC that afternoon; when we arrived back in the evening, they gave us a room we never reserved. When I went down to the front desk to say something, they said I had to speak to a manager in the morning and they had over booked my room choice and there was nothing that could be done. For a total of $645 a night, it is completely wrong and outrageous that the room I reserved would just be given away after we were there before and at check in time. I will never stay at this hotel again. They have no care whatsoever for their guests. In addition to the the lack of regard and customer service, the hotel is run down and beat up. Our room was filthy. Just an awful disappointing stay all around.

The location is just fantastic. I was here for the weekend. There was a farmers market diagonally across the street on Saturday. The waterfront is a few blocks down to the river, where you can actually catch ferries to DC and other river tours. If you walk and cross GW parkway, you are in the vicinity of a lot of shopping and dining options. I think you can walk to the big Masonic temple. The king street metro is on the way. The hotel has a nice restaurant attached. The lobby is plush. Reception was helpful. The rooms were luxurious with marble tiled bathrooms. The parking is on the lower levels for a fee. Great option for a staycation or a vacation.

Good location for a hotel. Staff was wonderful, from housekeeping up to the managers. Property was clean. However, many little issues such as missing light switch knobs, peeling face on furniture. And again, the rooms were not designed with input from women. Even the only lit mirror was poor for make up application. The restaurant/bar on the property is closed Sunday & Monday! I would say that this is a 3 1/2 star property.
