“Excellent stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

We stayed here for one night, while waiting for other family members to arrive in town (we spent the rest of our trip with them at a different hotel in town). This Holiday Inn Express was easy to get to from the Beltway, it was clean, and the room was very nice. The breakfast service was way above average for the Express breakfast, especially in the DC area.

Room Tip: Avoid the first two levels. Level 1 is actually below ground level, due to the sloping elevation in...

I have family in the Alexandria area and have stayed at this hotel many times. Everything is always clean and comfortable. Having breakfast included in the stay is a plus and it includes more than muffins and coffee. I never leave hungry. The hotel also has a shuttle to the nearest Metro which is on the Yellow Line. I will be traveling to Alexandria soon and I will be staying here again.

Room Tip: I would prefer to stay on the back side. Traffic on Richmond Highway can be noisy.

My Mom and I stayed at this hotel Sept 22-Sept 28, 2013, during our trip to Washington DC. The room and bathroom was very clean and comfortable. Carmen the day manager was so helpful and friendly, she remembered us each day when we left thru the lobby and always had a smile on her face. Phil the night manager was great too. The breakfast staff kept the dining area cleaned and stocked. (We loved the cinnamon rolls--where do they come from?). Asmon (sp) the shuttle driver was so sweet. Fred the day shuttle driver was fantastic. The price was very reasonable esp comparied to the other Alexandria/Washington DC hotels. We took the metrorail into the city everyday, but drove in one night for a nighttime tour (it would be helpful to have printed maps for visitors needing to drive into the city or Old Alexandria).

Room Tip: The swimming pool is at the sister hotel next door. The AC unit was louder on the top floor.

My hotel stay was pleasant. My husband and I have stayed at this hotel three times because I have business meetings in the area. We live in Honolulu, Hawaii and after a long flight across the country, I look forward to checking into this hotel. What I like about our stay is that the room is spacious, comfortable and clean. The hotel also offers a free shuttle service to and from the airport. We also took the shuttle several times to the airport so we pick up the Metro train ride to Washington, D.C. What we also like is that the hotel is right across the street from a supermarket, which is so convenient to pick up any items. The bed was very comfortable. The staff is very helpful, especially William in restaurant. Our room was a suite which also included a refrigerator and a microwave. The cost was reasonable. Overall, I like this hotel, had a pretty good experience and plan on staying at this hotel again.

Room Tip: Corner suites seem to be larger.

I read the reviews for this hotel so I was expecting it to be a good hotel. We were disappointed in this hotel as our room had no microwave or safe and the bed was uncomfortable and the bottom sheet had fuzz balls on it. The room had a funny smell when we walked in but it was clean. The breakfast was not good very poor choices. We have stayed in many Holiday Inn Express but this one missed the mark for us. For the price we payed one hundred and forty dollars I did not think it was good value. I would not recommend this hotel.

In late July and early Aug we spent four days at the Holiday Inn in Alexandria. All the staff was pleasant and helpful. Special clap for Aesmorom, (driver) and Nancy (breakfast staff) The manager was very polite to customers and staff. Great Job. We will be back.

I stayed for business last week and had a phenomenal stay! Upon check-in I was greeted by Carmen and her incredible smile at the front desk. This smile was consistent throughout my week's stay and was always delightful. General Manager Amanda & Front Office Manager Paul checked me into my room and were efficient and welcoming. I stayed in a beautiful room that was well lit, clean, spacious, and I loved that each lamp has an outlet directly on the base. Phillip was kind enough to make some great dinner recommendations and also had the same warm and welcome smile as the entire staff. I was greeted each morning at breakfast by Nancy who where I enjoyed a complete breakfast of cinnamon rolls, sausage, eggs, pancakes, fresh fruit, yogurt, juice and coffee. I will definitely stay there again when in the area.
