“customer service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2012

I travel frequently and spend over 75 nights a year on the road, many internationally. In all my travels there is no hotel anywhere in the world that provides better service and care than the HOLIDAY INN in Old town Alexandria Va, The manager Wanda Delgado is superb and has assembled a great service team. It starts at the front desk where Alex and Mo are simply the best of any in the world. When you walk in they already have your reservation made,key ready, room asigned and all the information you need ready to hand to you. I have never spent more than 2 minutes at the front desk when these two are on duty. The bar/grill area is also superbly managed and run by Bill. When I approach the bar he already has my favorite drink poured and ready for me. He constantly checks on all the customers and has a great service mentality, without being intrusive. AAAAA+ for this place and all its superb employees.

Four couples rented 4 rooms. All rooms were very clean. Good size fridge in all. Suite was exceptionally large with dining room table, a bar and renovated bathroom. Regular rooms have old bathrooms, but they were in fine shape. Ask for a room overlooking pool courtyard which is much nicer than overlooking parking lot.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking pool courtyard which is much nicer than overlooking parking lot.

We were at the property to attend a funeral and our rooms were filthy -mold in bathroom, stained carpets, and the had hundreds of kids there and didn't put them together in one area. It was that Close Up group and they ran and yelled and were terrors. Management didn't do anything to help out. Would never go back and we travel to that area monthly for business meetings.

Room Tip: Stay at Club Monaco

The room is ok. Curtains are old and crusty. I saw a bug crawling on the ceiling that looked like a giant silverfish right before I was going to go to sleep and didn't sleep well at all thinking there were more in the room and would be crawling on me while I slept.
It got a little cold during the day and I tried to turn on the heater and discovered it wasn't plugged in. After removing the cover of the apparatus I found the cord tucked into the apparatus. Went to plug it in and there wasn't a plug big enough in the room. It was the big kind you'd use for a dryer.
I'm only here for one night and I'm greatful it isn't more than that.
Beware or holiday inn hotels.

This is a nice clean, appears to be recently renovated, Holiday inn property. The decor is modern. With government rate booked online you will get coupon for free breakfast (and no, breakfast is not free or offered to customers without the coupon so be sure to book a rate that includes breakfast and that you get the coupon at checkin!). Appears to have many suites because most of group I was traveling with were upgraded from rooms to suites. This was a nice feature to have the microwave, mini fridge, etc., especially as there is a Giant Food grocery immediately across the street. We went across the street for their salad bar several times during the week. Although there's a shuttle offered, it was a nice walk down to Old Town Alexandria with an abundance of shopping and dining choices. The only thing that seemed to be off was thin ceiling/floors as I could hear every step from guests in the room above me in the middle of several nights. I turned on music at a low volume which made me able to get back to sleep. Otherwise, a fine stay! Very nice workout room and indoor pool, unfortunately the hotel spa is now closed and filled in as a 'rock garden' with potted plants :(.

Room Tip: Ask for a suite. There are a variety of different layouts. Although I booked a suite (a few dollar...

Myself, my wife, and our 2 boys stayed here for 4 nights over Easter break. First of all, let me stress that the location is great. You are a short walk to King Street which is the main attraction of Old Town Alexandria. The hotel will shuttle you to and from the Metro. The customer service was very good. Having only used the Metro once before, the front desk was very helpful in helping me navigate into DC via the Metro. Also, the hotel ran out of bagged coffee for the rooms 2 of our 4 days. In lieu of the in room coffee, the staff delivered coffee to our room free of charge. Parking was easy, as I was always able to secure surface parking, and never had to use the ramp.
As with most reviews I do have a couple of negatives to point out. First of all, the front doors were not automatic sliding doors. This may not sound like a big deal, but with 2 suitcases, 2 duffel bags, and a computer bag on the luggage cart it was not the easiest thing to maneuver through 2 sets of push doors. Also, the hotel advertises a hot tub, but from the looks of the hot tub it hasn't been used it quite a while as it was being used as a planter stand in the pool room.
Overall, it was a good experience, and yes I would return.
