We are staying at the Embassy Suites Alexandria Old Town. Although it wasn't our first choice I am looking forward to our trip. We tried to find a hotel with a shuttle from DCA but nothing was available that would meet all our needs. I know others have suggested taking the Metro to the area but I think I'd like to see if I can get a RT transfer to/from hotel lined up before our trip. Traveling with 2 teens and a husband who needs things to run smoothly. Any suggestions about which company to use. Would also love to hear from anyone who has stayed at ES OT or in this area.
