As a frequent traveler, I would recommend this hotel for business and leisure travelers. The front desk staff was very courteous and helpful, and I was recognized as a Priority Club member. The beds were comfortable, the A/C unit worked well as was not overly noisy. The room was quiet and clean. The wireless internet connection in the room is free, but is slow. Get the access code from the front desk.
It's about 3/4's of a mile walk from the hotel to King Street, where most of the restaurants and entertainment is in Old Town Alexandria. The hotel has a shuttle that can take you to King Street and to Reagan National Airport. We did not eat at the hotel restaurant, but we did eat breakfast at the hotel cafe once, and it was terrible. After that, we walked the few blocks down St. Asaph Street to the Royal Restaurant, and had a good breakfast.
It would be nice if the hotel extended their shuttle service to the Metro stations (Braddock Road or King Street), but they seem unwilling to do that.
There is a Giant supermarket across the street and a good chinese take out place a few blocks down Pitt Street.
