Don't let me fool you from the title, this isn't an inexpensive hotel. But compared to similar hotels in Arlington, VA and Washington, DC you can expect to save over a hundred dollars. Outside the front door is METRO Transits King Street Station, next to that is the railroad station serviced by Amtrak and Virginia Railway Express (commuter rail service). Between the three, this hotel is linked perfectly with Washington, DC.
During my visit to the Washington, DC area I choose this hotel for price, convenience, and the lovely "Old Town" area that Alexandria has to offer. Alexandria is an upscale town, clean and very well manicured. You will not find fast food places in this area. As a matter of fact, if high class dining isn't your thing you will have a difficult time finding a meal. Only a Dunkin' Donuts and a Subway Sandwich shop are within walking distance of this hotel. Both housed in fancy store fronts surrounded by cobble-stone sidewalks.
The Hilton Hotel is perfect! Check-in was simple and quick. My special request was honored (although an email I sent them a few days prior to confirm the special request was never replied to), but it worked out fine anyway. The room was clean, and well cared for. I had that feel like I was the first guest to stay in that room "feeling". Beds, TV, shower, and everything else in the room worked as designed. Don't let the fact that trains that operate near the hotel discourage you, my room faced the railroad directly and there was no outside noise at all. Additionally, most of the trains stop running during the 8pm hour, and don't begin until around 6am. I know that because I was reading up of train service since I used the railroad to come to Alexandria. I wasn't woken up at all during my one night stay, the hallway and rooms were quiet as well.
Weekend rates are much better then weekday room rates. I anticipate returning to this hotel next time I'm in the area!
