This small hotel (45 rooms) sits right in Old Town Alexandria close to everywhere you might walk. The valet was an extremely nice Sam, and then the front desk manager was a second extremely nice Sam. Room was clean and comfy, with a great walk in shower. Breakfast was very nice, even with covid restrictions. There is only valet parking, which was expensive...but everywhere in the area is expensive unless you find street parking. Highly recommend.

I have stayed at this hotel several times and absolutely love it. I credit the manager Sam for the warm and welcoming culture. All of the employees seem genuinely happy to be working there a d interact professionally with guests. The hotel is in a historic building and the lobby a s rooms are charming and cozy. It is located quietly 1 block off King street so you can easily walk to restaurants and shops or the Potomac river trail. They ha e a generous breakfast in the morning and a wonderful Happy Hour in the evening. I travel a lot I can’t wait to stay here again.

My wife and I stayed for a brief weekend trip to celebrate her birthday. In fairness this was a return visit for us which says something in itself. The check in was smooth. They front desk staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Valet parking was available and convenient. We used the valet. Keep in mind the main entrance is on a side street/alleyway. You'll miss it in a blink. Don't let that bit of information discourage you. We stayed in one of the few suites with a living room on property. The room was very clean. Great hot water. They have some kind of auto water reducing contraption on the shower. Just know for full force you need to start the water and then slightly spin it. I did request flowers to be in our room upon check in which they were easily able to accommodate. Right now there is a Continental breakfast available of packaged items which was fine and bit of a the sign of the times right now. Don't expect more than basic for the packaged breakfast items. Throughout our visit everyone was great as we came in and out for our trips to the local stores and restaurants. The hotel is 1 block off the main street with all the shops etc. It is about 7-8 blocks from the waterfront and right in the middle of all the historic buildings with the beautiful architecture. I am confident we will stay here again.

We had an excellent experience here. Our corner room was just lovely. The grab and go breakfast was very plentiful with lots of healthy options, and we enjoyed it outdoors on the front patio area. The property is steps away from the Main Street but nice and quiet. Sam and Sam at the front desk were amazing, their level of customer service is above and beyond, and we rally appreciated it. We are already planning a second trip back to the area and will definitely stay again! Thanks so much!

Trying to celebrate our anniversary, but were disappointed. We booked a $500 room well in advance but were stuck in a basement with a window 2/3 covered with the cobblestone street and an AC unit that only pumped hot air. Tried a drink at the bar that looked fun, but it was closed for an event. The staff was friendly, but absolutely not worth the price.
