“Perfect hotel for a visit to DC”
Reviewed March 28, 2014

After reading many reviews of many Hotels, I decided on this hotel because of it location to the metro and it helps that it is close to the last stop on the metro which made it really easy for a newby like myself. Let me start with the staff, very professional, quick and knowledgeable. The hotel itself is very clean and well taken care of, it location is great because downtown historic Alexandria is just down the street, and they offer a free shuttle to and from the metro which is nice. I drove myself to the metro station because of having a young child requiring a car seat. The rooms are very clean, I would recommend getting a room on the back side because our room was on the front side and we did have some traffic noise but it was not horrible. Breakfast is free and very good, they change it up every morning so you are not always getting the same thing. All in All a great stay and a great value for a trip to DC.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back side face a parking lot and a wooded area they should be quieter as the rooms to t...

We were in DC to tour the area. We had spent our first few nights in the heart of DC but the hotel was very expensive and the rooms very small and we felt crowded. What a relief to check into the Holiday Inn Express and have so much room. We found the entire to be extremely clean and truly a perfect stay for the rest of our time in DC. The shuttle takes you to and from a Metro stop, about 5 minutes away. (We felt it was a bit too far to walk). The shuttle will also take you to and from Old Towne Alexandria during certain hours at night. The entire staff was very kind and helpful. The breakfast was alway fresh and plentiful. It is a step above your typical breakfast buffett. We also felt the price was good especially with what we were paying in DC. It is the end of the Metro line so it is easy to figure out what train to take to meet other trains or only about 5 stops from airport. I would highly reccommend this hotel.

Room Tip: we were on the third floor but felt the rooms were far enough apart that they were not noisy at all.

recently stayed for 2 nights at the Holiday Inn Express in Alexandria. The hotel itself was clean and very convenient to downtown Alexandria and to DC where we were going. They also had a free shuttle to Metro station, etc.although we did not use it, it is a nice amenity to have at your disposal. I really did not have any complaints but the hotel is very basic, breakfast which is included, was fine but nothing more. Have stayed at other hotels there that included breakfast and they were much better, stick with some toast or cereal and coffee. Our room was clean, free internet and free parking which all hotels in the city do not include, so that was nice. We basically only used the room to sleep, got a good rate and was easy to get around where we needed to go. Nothing spectacular but nothing really bad to say about it. Oh, and although I didn't use it they said they had free washers and dryers to use, nice touch.

Our family has stayed here twice while traveling; both times we had great stays. Its location is very convenient to I-495, from either the north or south. The rooms are nice, and the breakfast is also good. This is a great value for traveling families.

Very new, modern and comfortable hotel. Everything worked perfectly and was very clean. Breakfast was great - especially the cinnamon rolls. We had a room in the back so it was very quiet. It faced a parklike area.

Room Tip: Get one in the back.

Whenever my wife and I go to Alexandria to visit our son, we stay at this Holiday Inn Express. The staff is very friendly and accommodating and will assist in any way they can to make our stays good. The rooms are always nice and clean as is the breakfast area. We have no problems sleeping in the beds. We find them very comfortable. Nancy, the young lady that works in the breakfast area is an outstanding worker and should you need anything, she will do whatever she can for you. As I stated, we stay there every time we are in the Alexandria / DC area. It is a great location.
