This hotel offers one a reasonable base of operations for touring historic Alexandria and Washington, D.C. It is an easy walking distance from the tourist strip of King Street and a very easy walk (about 15 minutes) to the Braddock Street Metro Station. Also very close were some good restaurants. This was important to us because we did not want to deal with car rental and the D.C. Metro system makes a car-free experience a possibility.
The staff I found consistently friendly and helpful. Although I don't crawl on my hands and knees with a magnifying glass looking for dirt and hair, I did find the standard of cleanliness to be reasonable. We slept very well. In fact, I couldn't believe how well my wife slept, given the fact that she usually does not sleep well on trips. Our room had a microwave and small refrigerator, both of which functioned well. The only issues we experienced, and they were minor, were the bathtub faucet dripped and our card reader/door lock had to be fixed.
The hotel offers a restaurant, bar, and cafe. Since there were restaurants nearby, we did not patronize these places. Therefore, I can offer no helpful insights into the quality of their food or service.
