We have stayed in various places around Washington and this time decided to stay in Alexandria so we could take a river cruise to Mount Vernon. A nice modern looking hotel with secure onsite parking. Check in was easy and the clerk told us all about the shuttle that would take us anywhere we wanted to go within a mile and half. Rooms were a bit of a surprise when we came across only one king size bed and what was a sofa bed. This was our own fault for not checking the booking correctly. We had two rooms each with three people in ( 6 of us travelling in all). This would not have caused much of an issue had the sofa bed been made up ready, we didn't expect to have to do this ourselves. Also there were only two towels in the bathroom, if they were expecting three in each room, surely it should have been made up to accommodate this. But this was the only glitch in the proceedings. The room also had a lovely kitchen area and if we had been staying any longer we certainly would have used this. We quickly had the room sorted and took the shuttle into old town Alexandria. Shuttle driver was friendly and told us were to meet him at the time we were ready to leave. The breakfast room the following morning was full to brimming but the member of staff was trying his best to keep it clean. It was nice to be able to have waffles with all types of toppings to go with them. The mornings shuttle driver told us all about the local history and pointed out several different places on the drive to the river front. We would certainly not hesitate to stay here again.
