My wife and I stayed in the 216 B&B with another couple and their daughter (there are three separate bedrooms and 2.5 baths on 3 stories in a narrow townhouse) when we visited D.C. to see the cherry blossoms in early April. The owners live next door and are very nice and accommodating without being intrusive. The townhouse is very clean and well-appointed with a kitchen, two large living areas, an outdoor courtyard with seating, wireless internet, TVs, and pretty much anything you might want. It's located only a block and a half from King Street, which is the where most of the best restaurants and shops in Alexandria are. It was perfect for our group - like having our own home there. Price is very reasonable, especially considering that 3 couples can easily fit.
