“What I Expected”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

The biggest plus for this hotel Is the free shuttle to the Metro Station every half hour. You can catch a free trolley to the waterfront or a train to D.C. The staff was helpful , room was clean with nothing broken or worn out. Breakfast was as good as you usually get. Couldn't find anything wrong. the online price was less then expected.

We were awakened and evacuated twice in the middle of the night by a false alarm of the fire system. The management offered little in the way of apology, and no instructions at the end of the alarms. Guests simply climbed the stairs back to their rooms.

Hotel was satisfactory. The location is excellent for using the Metro to D.C. The fire alarm went off twice on our first night which was disturbing. It was good for your purposes which was to visit D.C. with our grandson.

The lobby of the hotel is nice, but rooms need renovation. Stains on the chairs, mold in tub and broken handle in tub. Fire alarm went off at 12:30am. Evacuated hotel fire dept came. No communication about if there was an actual fire. We went back in and at 4am another alarm, only lasted a few minutes, no guests left their rooms this time and again no communication with guests about what happened. Not safe!!

Great stay, convienient location, friendly staff! Close to the Metro and Trolley. Easy walk to the waterfront. Hotel and pool were clean. Breakfast was very good. Great place for a family stay. 20 minutes by Metro to DC.

We had two rooms located close to each other during our four-day stay. We took the metro into Washington, DC to do the tourist bit . . . the station was a short walk away. Excellent restaurants were within walking/trolley distance of the hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

This hotel was perfect for me. I took the train (Amtrak) into Alexandria for a conference, and I spent my arrival night here. The location was fabulous -- right near the train station (a block or two) and less than a mile from the waterfront, which offered all sorts of great restaurants and entertainment. Since I didn't have a car, this was all very convenient for me. It's also near the metro station.

The front desk staff was very friendly and welcoming, helpful in giving me recommendations, as well. (I arrived 6/22.) They even upgraded my room.

The room was clean, very comfortable, and exactly what one would want out of hotel for the night. It was quiet, and I got a great sleep. The wifi worked well, too. I even watched some HBO. The breakfast in the morning was good.
