Before my visit to Alexandria, I looked for an hotel in walking distance to the King Street Metro, restaurants and sights. This hotel was a good match. The location, room, and complimentary breakfast met or exceeded expectations. A helpful and friendly staff person offered exceptional service during check in and check out.
The Breakfast atmosphere was robust, full of families and couples grabbing breakfast before heading out to Alexandria and DC. I liked the atmosphere, service and location!
Unexpectedly, I found that the hotel was one half block from an upscale Whole Foods Store. My husband and I skipped the expensive Alexandria restaurants and ate two very satisfying meals there. They offered a full food bar, wine/beer bar and took orders for burgers and pizza. We liked that it was nearby, especially since we were staying in a suites hotel with a kitchen.
One block away, on Prince St, was a Crate and Barrel Outlet offering deeply discounted housewares. There aren't many outlets around, so this was a treat.
If you want an uninterrupted good night's sleep, I suggest you disable the refrigerator's ice maker which noisily dropped ice a few times during the night.
